There are two kinds of Republicans these days. The kind who publicly call for right-wing, Christianist, craziness like this:
Sen. Jim DeMint (R-S.C.) says that even though “no one” came to his defense in 2004 after he said that gay people and unwed mothers should be banned from teaching…
And the kind who quietly support it.
… “everyone” quietly told him that he shouldn’t back down from his position.
Which kind is Dino Rossi? Pretty clearly the latter. But it doesn’t make it any less crazy.
