You know the wheels are coming off the Republican Wurlitzer when Republicans, as opposed to Democrats, are engaging in public ‘soul-searching.’ From MSNBC, by way of Atrios:

And the evangelicals know that, and they’re beginning to learn that their own leaders sort of look askance at them and don’t share their values.
MATTHEWS: So this gay marriage issue and other issues related to the gay lifestyle are simply tools to get elected?
