    They are either "retrograde Republicans" or "regressive Republicans."  I don't think that you could actually find a quorum of Republicans in history however that were as fascistic or as whackaloon as this current bunch.  They started out with such promise in the late 1850's.

    My core tenets:
    • I am intolerant of only intolerance
    • I am prejudiced only against prejudice
    • I hate only hate
    But Republicans continue to strive to be the subject of these three tenets.
