Faux News lets Caribou Barbie go while Colin Powell goes on TeeVee to try and explain why even though he is a Republican at heart, he felt obliged to vote for Obama twice. Even Bobby Jindal, no tower of intellectual acuity himself, tells his Repuke colleagues they have to stop being the "stupid party." Of course deep within Bobby's soul burns the desire to be the first East Indian President, if he can head off Nikki Haley for the nomination. Even KKKarl Rove is almost as invisible lately, as was Bu$h the Lesser during the election, after his election night meltdown on national TeeVee.
Robert Reich, former Secretary of Labor under Clinton, in The GOP Crackup: How Obama is Unraveling Reagan Republicanism analyzes the woes of the Stupid Racist Party of Aging White Guys. The entire post is worth reading but I was particularly amused by this:
The 2012 Republican primaries exposed all the cracks and fissures in the GOP coalition.
Mr. Reich forgot to mention that each of the oddball Star Wars barroom character became a target for the money backing Mitt the Twit as each in turn briefly assumed the lead, until the Repubs had to go with the guy that stood for nothing whatsoever, hoping standing for nothing wouldn't offend anyone.The Party offered up a Star Wars barroom of oddball characters, each representing a different faction — Bachmann, Perry, Gingrich, Cain, Santorum. Each rose on the strength of supporters and then promptly fell when the rest of the Party got a good look.
