It’s been a few weeks now since I’ve been on a rant about the Repugs (managed to mostly ignore the kabuki theater of the faux fiscal cliff crisis) but now here’s a little new information, esp. after the new Congress has been seated. Some paper is finally willing to stick its neck out with this tame story and stop treating Repugs like a legitimate political party (as it once was) instead of what it is now, terrorist nihilists.
Guess what, the Repugs, at least in the House are effectively a southern party that is as crazy and regressive as the crowd who started the Civil War. Don’t the Johnie Rebs ever disappear after their defeat, plus economic stagnation of their third world backwoods culture! No, they’re stronger than ever and looking for revenge to try to bring down the Union from a fifth column anchored in the House and holding any reasonable Repug hostage.
And guess what, a southern party is exactly what it was with Strom Thurmond’s Dixiecrats and George Wallace’s Democrats and third party – RACIST! with a healthy dose of ignorant backwoods redneck religinut thrown in as well.
So how long is it going to take the remaining rational Republicans outside the dixie flag south to finally realize their party has abandoned them, not just the Rockefeller wing, but also the Taft or Eisenhower or Dole wing (or any group vaguely rational and with IQ at least equal to their skin temperature). In addition to being racist through and through they’re also anarchists (or at least feudal), but mostly they’re just flat out ignorant hicks. It’s time for the real Republicans to stand up and either take back their party or create a new one.
So poor deluded optimist Obama, trying to be reasonable and bring people together might as well be trying to make friends with alligators and bomb throwers (he should do a few drone strikes in Mississippi and South Carolina to get rid of those terrorists). The House Repugs have no intention of allowing any government at all, certainly not a rational one that can handle 21st century challenges. So Barry, really stiffen up your backbone and just beat them with a stick because, like mules, that’s the only thing they understand (economics and finance are way way too advanced subjects for morons who can’t even do basic math).
