Well, they hung around this long, through all the other GOP stonewalling, anti-gay, anti-science, anti-woman, fetal heartbeat, and tax bullshit. Everything was cozy about that.
I guess it took their sacred cow being led to slaughter to find any reason to object. Not that I blame them for finding what Cain said outrageous, but I find it a bit laughable until now they identified with everything else. It’s like Romeny and Beck pitching little hissy fits about the anti-Mormon thing.
These are your people, “conservatives.” This is what they do.
