67% of white Tea Party supporters think gays should be allowed to serve in the military

Mind you, white Tea Party supporters are terrible on lots of other gay issues, but on letting gays serve in the military, they’re 67% in favor. And these guys are pretty much the far-right of the Republican party – they hate everybody. It just continues to show how out of touch with the mainstream both the President and Democrats in Congress are on issue after issue.

I mean, seriously, President Obama is to the right of Teabaggers on repealing DADT? (And spare me the “Obama is for DADT repeal” talk. No he’s not. He’s for “saying” that he’s for repeal. The same way he said he was for the public option, and addressing climate change, and passing immigration reform, and on and on.)

Here’s the study with all the results.
