...even as attitudes continue to shift among most Americans, Republicans have been slow to embrace the change. The NBC/WSJ poll showed that 66 percent of Republicans are opposed to same-sex marriage — a stark contrast to the 73 percent of Democrats who support giving gay and lesbian couples the right to tie the knot. That level of opposition may place national Republican leaders who are trying to soften the party's stance on issues related to gay rights in an awkward position.
Anything beyond missionary (gimp suits excepted) is an awkward position for the GOP base.
Oh, I think after running Santorum, Cain, Rmoney, One-L, Newticles for President and Scary Sarah for VP, the Repugs are pretty used to awkward by now.
Don't forget Mickey Bachmann and witchy Chrissy O'D.
Republicans are more comfortable with anonymous airport bathroom BJs (Larry Craig), snorting meth with a male hooker (Haggard) or Boinking the Argentinian Tail (Sanford).
but they preach puritanism.
Maybe they should have been trying to widen the party's stance, heh-heh.
