53. Welcome to DU!

This has been their way since they got nasty back in the '80s. Heady times for them with this whole seismic political shift when ronald reagan came onto the scene and brought a bunch of pre-Cambrian teabaggers with them - like newt gingrich and all his little friends in that 1980 freshman class in Congress. AWFUL. He swaggered around declaring himself a "back bench bomb-thrower" with an ego the size of the state of Alaska. And all his little friends were emboldened. And further more, because of reagan embracing and USING the passions of the religious extremists (those wackjobs FINALLY found their hero to bring them in out of the cold! Sigh!), they all assumed that victory meant THEY had God on THEIR side. When you stir a cocktail like that together, you get a pretty damn shitty drink, and an AWFUL hangover - that unfortunately lasts for decades.
