Jim Newell of Gawker did the dirty work so I don't have to pollute my blargh and video list with this commercial, but it has to be seen to be believed. The National Republican Trust PAC is not run by the Republican Party, but by NewsMax magazine -- one of the most right-wing commentary sites on the Internet.

No matter.

They are trading under their name, and has been with outrageous ads like this since 2008. The Republican Party needs to come out and condemn this group and demand they stop advertising under that name. Otherwise, I can only assume the Republican Party has no problem with religious bigotry in their name, which makes them accessories to it.

Don't you see the political beauty of it? They can let it sit there, giving only a little lip-service to it not really representing them, and still rack up votes from that demographic.

Don't let it upset you. It's only a matter of time before that portion of the voting public splits off from the Republican party to start a new ultra-conservative party, sort of like the Green party with the liberals. I suspect this Tea Party movement may be a precursor to that.

Of course, they'll probably draw a huge chunk of the Nazi party away as well, but that's alright.
