    Pointless gamesmanship. In the midst of all this Tea Party razzle-dazzle, we forget how big a bloc social reactionaries still are for the Republican Party.

    Of course, what said reactionaries don't realize is that for the most part, the Republican Party does not give a shit about actually addressing their concerns. At most, this will rise up to wedge issue status. Legislating on the concerns of the religious right rarely materializes nationally when compared to the concerns of the economic right.
