In response to StalkingButler's comment:
The tea party crowd still considers homosexuality an un-natural abomination.
No, you're talkimg about social conservatives, not tea-party conservatives. The tea-party is all about fiscal conservatism and limited government. Jeez people, it's like you're not even trying to get it straight.
The polling doesn't bear out your statement...entwined as the tea party is with evangelical and southern conservatives, e.g. per the National Review:
Even among Republicans, opposition to same-sex marriage is increasingly tenuous, particularly along two axes. First, self-described tea-party Republicans oppose gay marriage 84/13, while Republicans who describe themselves as neutral toward or opposed to the Tea Party oppose gay marriage by smaller 62/34 and 52/47 splits, respectively. This is a more or less momentous split depending on how credible one finds evidence that tea-party membership is in sharp decline.
That's not fair - everybody knows that polls, news, stats, facts, science, history, the global community & common sense have a liberal bias.
