Nah, that engages in an argument with a hippo, who will just look at you and then either charge or go on standing in muddy water, chomping roots. Instead, let's go with this: the desperation of conservatives at this point to defeat Barack Obama is reaching a fever pitch and they know they're not gonna do it with Romney (my em). So instead, it's time to inflict as much damage as possible, to take sink the ship because they don't like the captain. And why not, since they've already bribed the officers for a seat on the lifeboat.
Now, the Rude Pundit's pretty sure that doesn't fall into the "love your country" category.
I love the smell of Repug desperation in the morning. Similar to the smell of self-applied napalm. Heh.
