Crazy is the new normal. There isn't anything that used to be political poison that will disqualify a Republican/Tea Party candidate from potential viability. Even so, GOP candidate for Governor of New York just gave an incredibly tone-deaf speech denouncing homosexuality--not gay marriage, or gays in the military--gay people. Sure, the tea bagger hoards running for office this year have sporadically let their homophobia flags fly, but this is New York. Where there is not only a very established gay community, not only where the gay rights struggle began, but where a very high profile teen suicide and a anti-gay attack just occurred and are still in the news. Unbelievable.
