    It's been a week.  I was so tired last night I couldn't stay up long enough to visit.

    For a bunch of conservatives, I think they vote more on family or tribal loyalty than on the actual issues.  They will juggle their beliefs and rationalize however they must in order to justify their support however they can.  Frankly, I think liberals do this, too, but not as often.

    My partner's family is a prime example.  They hate Evangelicals, they are supportive of their gay son and brother, and they think there hasn't been a decent President since Eisenhower.  But they would never even consider voting for Democrats.  That's not their tribe.  Much like the Republican party, they are stuck in the cultural framing of 40 years ago, and that's just not going to change.
