The Republican Twist

Have you ever seen the Republicans more twisted than they are today?

I've been hard pressed to find greater examples of insanity from the far Right than have been exhibited in the past week.

Here we have a Republican Pparty that's been discredited and bloodied, and yet in the face of an enormously popular president who is confounding conventional wisdom while building a working consensus among American voters, the Republicans appear to be reflexively coughing up the most intellectually violent chunks of hooey on record.

They're screaming about fear-mongering, even though we had eight years of this.

They're screaming about fiscal irresponsibility, even though we had eight years of this.

They're honest to God screaming about fascism, even though we had eight years of this.

By successfully debunking their lies, rising above their bait and merely presenting a contrast of character, President Obama is making the Republican A-listers appear small, petty and absolutely befuddled.

They're frantically struggling to figure out how to counter-punch, so they're grabbing, borrowing or downright plagiarizing ideas from anywhere, irrespective of the general quality of the idea.

And if the Republicans are at all interested in continued survival, someone they respect should probably tell them that a party led by the buffoon Limbaugh is at best laughable.

But if this is their "voice" and they're satisfied with it, I for one welcome the new Republican "voice" and wish them a hearty and very sincere: Good luck with that.
