    The more stuff like this comes out, the more I'm convinced the GOP literally doesn't know who they actually appeal to. I think they thought the baggers were just a bunch of gun nuts and libertarians and then you get these end times idiots and neo-Nazis and they act all surprised when one of them says or does something stupid. Rove was in way over his head when he created this "movement", now the Frankenstein monster got away from him and he doesn't know how to deal with it. Truth be told, he was lucky to hold the coalition together as long as he did during the Bush years considering how unpopular Bush was towards the middle of his term. Even towards the end the end timers were the only ones still standing by him. He may go down in republican history as the guy who killed the party by letting the extremists have control of the leash. Won't lose any sleep over that one!
