GOP is Big Tent

OK, and the pope is Jewish.

It really is stunning how white the GOP really is.

99% of all Republican legislators across the country and in Congress are white.

Bush's home state is particularly impressive -- "Texas, with a minority population of 47 percent, has 106 Republicans in the state legislature, but there are 0 blacks and 0 Hispanics among them."

Anyone got statistics on how many of them come out of the corporate world or are born-again Christians? Now, while I have nothing against corporatists and born-again Christians (well, that's probably a little white lie), those statistics would probably be equally revealing.
