The GOP: A Coalition Of Suckers

Thom Hartmann on today's Republican party and the coalition they have to keep together in order to remain in power.

From this Tuesday's Thom Hartmann show:

Thom Hartmann says the Republican Party is the party of the rich and suckers and is made up of a collection of hardline fringe suckers.

Thom takes a look at the gun nuts, anti-abortion zealots and racists the rich are willing to throw a bone to in order to keep their coalition together and asks "what are the various categories of suckers inside of the Republican party?"
