St. George, UT – In a meeting with a teabagger group, Republican Senator Orrin Hatch did some fancy footwork trying to keep the extremists happy with him. In any way he could think of, he threw everyone under the bus – including those darn gays and lesbians.
Hatch has good reason to be worried, the teabaggers have already kicked out other major Republican encumbents for not being extremist enough.
“Tea Party members
I know by and large are good, honest, descent people, but out of anger should not disrupt the few GOP [candidates] who can win,” he said.
He said the Republicans need to organize and pull together just as unions, environmentalists, personal injury lawyers and gay rights activists do for Democrat candidates.
“Gays and lesbians don’t pay tithing, their religion is politics,” said Hatch.
If you don’t know, “Tithing” refers to the Mormon practice of giving 10% of all your income to the church leaders – a requisite for being a worthy member of the religion.
