In the broader scheme of things, the ginned-up controversy over what Phil Robertson said in the GQ interview was really insignificant. It was just another attempt to create a boogey man for the left to point at and say "see, everybody is so mean to me..."
That being said, anybody with their eyes open ought to be able to see that the reaction of ordinary Americans was telling.
Anybody that might be wondering what kind of candidate to run for political office ought to look at the groundswell of support for Mr. Robertson and look for a someone that could generate that kind of grass roots support in the face of a media blitz to discredit them.
Somebody who's real. Somebody who isn't embarrassed to tell you what they think. Somebody who has convictions that don't change with every new poll. Somebody grounded in American values.
I could go on but what's the point. If there is such a candidate, the establishment RINOS aren't going to let a candidate like that get past the primaries. They prefer to lose elections and the whole Country to running a candidate the unwashed peasantry actually wants.
