GOP IN A NOSE DIVE...LOOKING FOR A PLACE TO CRASH

After the GOP got beat up in the last election, they have been in a slow decline....until the last couple of weeks. Since Sen Arlen Specter switched sides, which was a bullshit political move on his part, and the "boyz" had their little listening tour, which they were told later that they don't need no stinking listening tour, the GOP has gone into a downward spiral trying to find where they are supposed to be. Hell, they couldn't even keep Joe Not A Plumber But A Tax Cheat from jumping ship.

The most wonderful woman in TV news, Rachel Maddow, had this to say last night:

Please GOP, please crash and burn ASAP. In the words of Rachell, "oh please, oh please, oh please."

Amen to that!

Nancy & Riot Kitty - I'm looking foward to that day when the GOP does it's final tailspin and crashes for good. I am also a bit concerned about what it is that we may get to replace it. We know what we have and how to deal with the GOP, we may not know how to deal with what comes next.

Thanks for posting that. I missed all the shows last night. We're in interesting times all right. I do wonder what comes next and how all this is going to play out.

Based soley on what I've been reading on blogs from the uber-conservative troglodytes in my hometown newspaper website, these folks are truly scary. It wouldn't surprise me if an ultra-right-wing group were being formed right now with NRA, militia types who plan to stage some kind of revolution or take-over. The most irrational of them think Obama is actually going to load them on cattle cars to ovens! There seems to be a call to arms happening. I hope Homeland Security is paying attention. Then again, it could all be idiots behind their computers trying to 'impress' each other with their evil words.

Nancy - I believe what you, I, and others are seeing is the brainless wonders who can't think for themselves and get all their information from the screaming insane fascists that work for Rupert Murdoch.

I know there is more than likely a small percentage that are the "real head cases who own guns" (NRA), but let's hope that DHS has their eyes on them....which I'm sure they do.

No doubt there are a thousand signs of a Republican apocalypse that'll either keep the party out of power for decades, or force it to jettison the Limbaugh/funamentalist/Fox News crowd and recreate itself as a more centrist party, leaving the far right out in the cold where it belongs (which, obviously isn't gonna happen now...but, give 'em a couple more disastrous elections and see...remember, nobody in the early 80's could've imagined a democratic president announcing "the age of big government is over") and yet, one should never underestimate the Democratic party's ability to fuck up even the best opportunities...

"...never underestimate the Democratic party's ability to fuck up..."

Yoga - Oh how very true that statement is. I've watched them do that soooo many times, and yet they never seem to learn. Maybe this time Barry will have the ability, and public backing, to keep them in line and prevent that from happening.
