    Republicans who care about nothing but taxes and being greedy or several others I know from grad school..3 of them are scientists ..who got involved in right wing Evangelical churches and are socially conservative. It is because their spouse got them involved in those kind of churches or because once they had kids, they changed and decided the mega church offered more kids programs. It is strange but most of the hard core GOPers I know have at least a masters degree but a few had PHDs and one is climatologist.

      ... this crap.

      They know what it is. They are able to laugh it off as a fringe element because the GOP still stands for a few key things they like ... and we don't.

      It's that simple. Being enablers of the Fringe Right does not bother them enough.

      2014 IS COMING. Build up the Senate. Win back the House : 17 seats. Plus!

        I think you are spot on based on a discussion I was able to have with one of these very well educated Republicans.  The fringe right does not bother them enough. This person just shook their heads and sighed about the teabagger fringe.  It simply did not bother her enough to change parties or have second thoughts about the GOP.
