Still the tone was set with the slashing hard-right posters. I saw a few on the conference slide show. Two examples:
I love animals. They're delicious.Evolution is science fiction.
Standard weird stuff from the wingnuts.
What isn't standard is the adoration of a carnival hustler as glibly tasteless as R.L. to speak for a national (?) political party fumbling around in the South. To repeat, who in good conscience could salute a person who has ridiculed Parkinson's Diesase, who has called upon the troops back in his armory to wish for President Obama's failure, who escaped serious drug charges that might have sent others to prison, who escaped military service because of a cyst on his tailbone (full disclosure: I had a bad one, but the military doctors told me, shucks, they'd take care of it after I was in uniform.)
He has lived a shameful life. And now what's left of the Republican Party shamefully looks to him for supreme guidance.
