Lying and distraction is just what the self-proclaimed "party of values" does. In reality, they proudly eat their own young, ostracize loyal party members for minor slip ups, and discriminate against non-whites and non-Christians.
Being a Republican today requires a purity test, esuring that only white Christian males and wealthy females need bother participating in the system. It's what is going to lose them an eminantly winnable election for the White House this November.
