The GOP Is Going to Flip Their Shit

Somewhere last night Tony Perkins, Michelle Bachmann, and Bryan Fischer's heads all exploded at the same time that David-Koch.jpgDavid Koch endorsed full marriage equality.

TAMPA, Fla. - Billionaire industrialist David Koch, who is helping steer millions of dollars to elect Mitt Romney and congressional Republicans, on Thursday told POLITICO he disagrees with the GOP's stance on gay marriage and believes the U.S. needs to consider raising taxes to balance the budget.

The 1980 vice presidential nominee for the socially liberal - but fiscally conservative - Libertarian Party, Koch told POLITICO "I believe in gay marriage" when asked about the GOP's stance on gay rights.

Romney opposes gay marriage, as do most Republicans, and when that was pointed out to Koch, he said "Well, I disagree with that."

Now maybe he'll put his money where his mouth is and stop endorsing (spending massive amounts to elect) virulently homophobic politicians.

Don't hold your breath.
