How did the GOP fuck up so bad as to let this election become about pills and rubber?

    Seriously? Talking about my neighbors sexual preferences is NOT important to the future of our country.

    Debt, jobs, wars, taxes and the damn discussion is about some stupid college kid who wants free pills. If we don't change the subject we deserve to lose. Yeah, we may excite the base but at what expense?

    I think you can trace its origin to whatever point in time it was when the social conservatives took over the Tea Party.

    The media ran with it and you sheep ate it up like candy.

    Blame the media.

    There's been such a hard-on to undermine the ACA - because it doesn't look like it's gonna be repealed anytime soon - that the GOP was willing to let the wrong people take over the conversation.

    Blame the media and yourself, actually.

    You're mistaken the media's interest and side-railing with the GOP campaign.

    These things are what the MSM want you to think the campaign is about.

    They should and they probably still will, but I think the reason they haven't is that they themselves are ideologically for it even more than Dems. They just want THEIR Chief Executive to have that power.

    It's certainly what's on the democrat mind.

    Indeed, sex seems to be all they think about.
