I agree that it is a pretty far-fetched idea that I really don't put much stock in myself. I certainly don't think that the head honchos of the GOP cooked it up. I give credit for being smart enough to know that these laws would not stay on the books for long.
It is that quiet guy in back in the corner that you can never be sure of, though. It is plausible that someone who does care about this issue planted the seed that such proposals would turn out the fundamentalists, all the while knowing full well that they would get overturned. Said court action could actually push more people in the direction of the ultimate goal.
