Seriously, South Carolina? Seriously?

Yesterday saw the collapse of the Christian right and the Tea Party movement with the victory of a Washington insider whose 'character issues' eclipse every candidate's since Gary Hart, Gary Hart included. That both of these groups came out in force to support the winner, Newt Gingrich, is not a sign of their strength. Rather it is an example of something we've known all along: that they exist only to bring Evangelicals and those who fear a black president under the Republican umbrella. The values they claim to bring to the table are irrelevant.
