Response to Binkie The Clown (Reply #4)

10. The current radial repugs seem to be the heirs of George Wallace,

the KKK, the Birch Society and so forth.

So there was a home for the fringe, but religion wasn't quite as central as it is in today's fringey repugs.

Religion was just another avenue they exploited. The wonderful thing about religion is there is no way to prove anything, so the wildest claims are accepted as true.

I don't know if that makes sense, but the fringe has always had some home. This is the first time a so called mainstream party went wacky to get and hold on to them.
