Republican candidates support overthrowing the Constitution

GaygothicRepublican presidential hopefuls gathered in Iowa last night to pander to rightwing religious fanatics.  Apparently Herman Cain doesn't much respect the document that he will pledge to uphold if he is elected president (shortly after pigs start flying).  And history professor Gingrich also wants to toss out hundreds of years of legal precident in order to protect marriage bigotry.  Keep in mind that this is the guy who wants to imprison his political opponents for supporting position he opposes.  The correct answer to this question is that they would seek an amendment to the constitution barring marriage equality.  The religous right no longer favor this approach since such an amendment would likely fail.  In Rhode Island the Republicans took over the government and the legislature  voted to repeal marriage equality rather than seek an amendment to the state constitution.  Polls now show 55% of Rhode Island voters oppose such an amendment.  Even in North Carolina where the population if opposed to marriage equality amending the constitution is thought to be going too far.

Mitt Romney skipped thisside show.  He continues to look the most presidential.
