Indiana's Religious Freedom Restoration Act has created a national uproar that serves as a stark reminder of the state of today's Republican Party: par for the course is extreme policies for America.
Following a complete duff trying to defend the law on Sunday from Governor Mike Pence, the GOP's leading presidential contenders didn't lay-up, they doubled-downed. Jeb Bush and Marco Rubio, among others, took to the airways to unequivocally endorse Indiana's RFRA.
"I think Governor Pence has done the right thing," Jeb said.
While on FOX, Rubio attempted to defend the legislation by shanking it's intent: "Nobody is saying that it should be legal to deny someone service at a restaurant or at a hotel because of their sexual orientation. I think that's a consensus view in America."
Funny enough, he's completely wrong and totally right: Indiana's law would absolutely allow a business to "deny someone service" based on their sexual orientation, but it's also a "consensus view in America" that such legislation is discriminatory and wrong.
Sadly, Rubio, Bush and their colleagues are so willing to pander deep into the GOP bunker they'll likely be stuck until next November.
