Great line of the day 

Digby writes about reaping what you have sowed, and all that:
It's very hard for me to feel any sympathy for Grover Norquist who is being battered by the religious zealots for daring to speak at a Log Cabin Republican meeting . . . He built a vote machine of ignorant saps who really believe that economic conservatism has something to do with hating gays and traditional families. When you let the nutballs into the tent and give them real electoral power, this is what you get. Wait until Big Business understands that after they get their tax cuts and deregulation they'll have to contend with a generation of creationist witch burners to sustain a first world economy.
Emphasis mine. Yes, its going to be pretty difficult to drill for oil when the engineers on your crew don't believe in geology, or to build space weapons when the technicians didn't attend physics lectures, or to develop new crop varieties when your biologists never studied genetics.
