Every Republican on the floor knew exactly what and who Bradley Deen represented before he showed up to "pray". That he was allowed on the floor without any Republican objecting or the Speaker questioning his choice speaks volumes about the extreme right wing religious nut jobs who are elected officials. I pray they will all be run out of office in 2012.

The Republicans must surely remember Emmer's ties to Bradlee Dean and what that did to his campaign.
