Yes, these people are still here. They were at this weekend's Faith and Freedom conference bearing the evidently straight-faced title, Road to the Majority, wherein speakers said immigrants are more fertile and we need to protect the unborn and if America doesn't step up to fight radical Islam who will and the GOP needs to lean even further to the right, presumably while still remaining on the planet, which might be tough. Sarah Palin! Herman Cain! Phyllis Schlafly! Muslim jokes! Yes. They are still here, and despite the polls and elections and increasingly historically trending lay of the land, they want to be your future.
