There are only so many times a person can face palm.
I mean, it gets to the point where I can’t really talk politics any more because I have some distant political connection to the likes of Todd Akin, Sarah Palin, Rick Santorum, and Christine O’Donnell. I am a Republican. They are Republicans. Our political party is the same. Ew. I mean, these guys aren’t some serious political conservatives. They are nuts. They have turned the party into a total circus; complete with policy issues that make the clown car come into the tent and do a dozen Chinese Fire Drills while the rest of the crowd wonders what the fuck is going on. I mean, what the fuck is going on?
And it’s not even really Akin. He’s an idiot, a fly, a moron that is getting a lot of attention because the distraction of the abortion issue plays right into Barack Obama’s political theater. Seriously, it’s like the Obama Campaign was dealt a hand of pocket aces and his grin shows to the other players that life is about to suck. No, it’s the constant refusal to have a legitimate discussion on anything, anywhere, without insisting that every issue is black or white. It’s the reliance on the Grover Norquists of the world who seem to have every Republican politician by the nut sack over the tax pledge. If a Republican really wants to be President then they would take a copy of the tax pledge, go out on stage at the Republican Convention, and piss on it ala Coach Lou Brown in Major League. Then bring in followers of Jon Huntsman dressed with Nation of Islam bowties to take over the town hall and announce over the loudspeaker that “the real Republican intelligentsia has arrived.” To appease some liberals, allow Huntsman to throw Todd Akin into the Coleman Federal Pen to see how his body reacts to different forms of rape.
More than likely none of that will happen and the circus will make it’s way through town, Barack Obama will probably be reelected, and the Republican Party will insist that the problem was that Mitt Romney was not Conservative enough, when the real problem is that Mitt Romney should be acting like Governor Mitt Romney of Massachusetts. With the current state of the economy Romney should win easily. Yet polling is down across the nation. Hell, it shouldn’t even be tied. All because he’s not listening to the people, the majority of the party, or any person with common fucking sense. Instead he’s listening to the “base”, which consists of people telling him that an “Energy Plan” is opening up drilling off the coast of Virginia and North Carolina……not two years after the Deep Water Horizon destroyed the Gulf of Mexico.
Excuse me while I go hide behind my couch.
