50-70K gathered in Washington, D.C. for hatred, pure hatred. This is the Republican Party, a party that needs MINORITY VOTERS to make a return. Well, they won't get any new members with this rhetoric. And they walked all over Senator Ted Kennedy. These people and this party is atrocious. A battle for the heart and soul of America? Says who? The South? Please. Cross section of America, "white, whiter and whitest." And listening to the likes of the idiot of all television, Glenn Beck? Too much.
