    Honestly, no, there's no change of heart here. They're merely hiding their fangs until after the election.

    Since they really only listen to their own spin, they are often tone deaf to their own craziness. They were, and are taken aback by the effectiveness of the "war on women" moniker as a rally cry against their, well, war on women. (Remember Issa thought he had a winning hand by framing the contraceptive coverage as a "religious freedom" issue.)

    The legislation they're pushing in a number of states they control shows these are mainstream aims of the far right, not just one-off political mistakes. That the national conversation quick moved from a referendum on Obama to Scary-Republicans, has them loosing a presidential election Republicans were sure they were going to win.
