    Yeah. Since this data doesn't present the teabaggers in a favorable light, it will be ignored.

    In the future don't forget to use the "phrase that pays":

    "The Tea Party movement is a grass roots organization comprised of people from all socioeconomic backgrounds, political belief systems, races, religions, hairstyles who have come together because they are fed up with Washington and want to return to the apple pie value system of the 50's."

    For the rest of the thinking world, this is no surprise. When the tea party got inundated with disgruntled GOP voters, it only stands to reason that they would inherit the social conservative issues that really stokes a lot of fires over there.

    It ain't grass roots, its astroturf.

    :eusa_eh:

    That's the people who voted in the poll that they support the Tea Party, therefore are members. As much as you like to try to get around it, ain't happening.

    This might come as a shock to you, but sexual orientation is not a racial issue.

    Furthermore since there is no official "Tea Party", the moniker "Strong Tea Party Supporter" is about as bona fide as you get.

    See it's more of the teabagger sillyness. They play the "we are completely decentralized and these people are real teabaggers" card every time a news item that portrays them in a poor light.

    It's completely lame and nobody with an IQ of over 15 will let that bullshit walk.

    Actually, in this case they just want equal rights. Except only 18% of you folks want to do so. :eusa_whistle:
