The Mathematics of Demagoguery

From Politico via Ed Brayton:

A recent CNN poll showing that 68 percent of Americans oppose the construction of the mosque also found that about half think there is a constitutional right to same-sex marriage. No political genius is required to decide which issue to run on.

Argh. The GOP has truly become the Party of Stupid. "A majority of Americans are no longer fucking retarded bigots on the same-sex marriage issue? Oh noes, what are we Republicans to do! Oh snap, look at this, a majority of Americans now believe in repealing the First Amendment just to piss off some Muslims! We're saved!"

  1. At least we can use the GOP as a kind of canary for the bigotry of comfortable white people writ large.
