They’ve endorsed Nat Pulliam for the 10th. That’s not why they are out of touch. Read this paragraph and see if you can guess why they are out of touch.
That isn’t to say he’s the perfect candidate. Pulliam has some far-right positions on relatively trivial issues – he doesn’t believe in “winter holidays” but in “Christmas holidays,” and believes the words “In God We Trust” should continue to appear on American currency. However, Pulliam said those issues, while important to him, won’t be a high priority for his service in Congress, if he’s elected.
Only in Athens, I guess, do views shared by over two-thirds of the American public become “far right.”
[UPDATE:] Just to add useless knowledge above the fold, “In God We Trust” first appeared on American coinage by order of the Treasury Secretary pursuant to an Act of Congress in April 1864, in response to the Civil War. Congress ordered it be placed on all coinage printed in 1907. The Democrat controlled Congress adopted it as the national motto in 1956 after almost 100 years of appearance on our coinage and various government seals and documents.
Apparently, the extreme right-wing has been very active for a long time in this country.
