The Fringe Is The New Center?

This says a great deal about the modern Republican party.

39% of Republicans want President Obama to be impeached

This isn't surprising, as there will always be talks of "impending articles of impeachment" for Democratic Presidents. But the reasoning used for impeachment is what is beyond comprehension. She my post from earlier in the week regarding the current "Impeach Obama" movement.

63% think Obama is a socialist

And these people also think that he's a Marxist, Totalitarian, Communist, Maoist. It's fair and safe to say without fear of contradiction that these people don't know what any of these titles really mean.

42% believe Obama was born in the United States

While this particular belief set is based both in racial divisive and nativist mindsets, no amount of proof will convince the 58% of Republicans that apparently align themselves with the "birther" movement.

21% think ACORN stole the 2008 election, 55% "not sure"

You can thank Fox"News" and conservative activists for this one, as there was never one instance of voter fraud in the 2008 election. At best, you had several instances of "registration fraud" perpetrated by minimum-wage temps ACORN used during the election season.

53% think Sarah Palin is more qualified than Obama to be president

For the life of me, I'll never be able to comprehend how and why people believe this.

23% want to secede from the United States

Again, you can thank conservative activists for this little gem. I remember Kieth Olbermann doing a piece on what it would be like if Texas seceded - and it didn't play out well for Texans.

73% think gay people should not be allowed to teach in public schools

This whole idea that "gay" is something you can catch is not only preposterous but laughably ignorant.

But it's the last one that makes absolutely no sense......

31% want contraception to be outlawed

Really? So the use of condoms would result in jail time? You would be fined thousands if you were on the pill? Talk about taking abstinence-only education too far.
