Here's a good rorschach test for you.

Quote:
Republicans in the third-most-populous county in Texas voted overwhelmingly against the removal of one of their party leaders from his post on Thursday... It was over whether Dr. Shafi’s Muslim faith disqualified him from the job.


Quote:
Ms. O’Brien had spent the last several months persuading precinct chairs to oppose Dr. Shafi, and she was able to gain another 48 dissenters by Thursday night. One of them, Dale Atteberry, was upset with the results and quit after the vote.

“We don’t think he’s suitable as a practicing Muslim to be vice chair because he’d be the representative for ALL Republicans in Tarrant County, and not ALL Republicans in Tarrant County think Islam is safe or acceptable in the U.S., in Tarrant County, and in the TCGOP,” Ms. O’Brien wrote on Facebook in December.


Quote:
“Religious liberty won tonight,” Darl Easton, the Republican Party’s county chairman, said after Dr. Shafi was supported, 139 to 49, in Thursday’s vote. “And while that makes a great day for the Republican Party of Tarrant County, that victory also serves notice that we have much work to do unifying our party.”


Good on them or bad on them for even having to vote?

These xenophobic sentiments are out there. We can't pretend like they aren't. Good on them for getting the vote right.

I'll give Graham that. Translators are like the individuals themselves. Talks with foreign leaders in an official capacity should be confidential for a whole host of reasons.

I will venture there's not a lot of data to back up that claim. Never mind that Pelosi probably doesn't have much to do with DCCC campaign spending.

Seems like you might want to at least not piss off the 4-5% If your party that isn’t on board the Trump wagon. Still has to go before a full governing body.
