“I talk about one word, one sentence, one day out of place, and, all of a sudden, the entire establishment turns on you,” Representative Akin complained to the conservative radio talk-show host Dana Loesch on Tuesday as he spurned pleas from Mitt Romney and other G.O.P. big shots to abort his bid. He continued: “They just ran for cover at the first sign of any gunfire, and I think we need to rush to the gunfire.”
Yoo-hoo, over here! Pick me! Pick me! Rush this way!
He’s right again. Other Republicans are trying to cover up their true identity to get elected. Even as party leaders attempted to lock the crazy uncle in the attic in Missouri, they were doing their own crazy thing down in Tampa, Fla., by reiterating language in their platform calling for a no-exceptions Constitutional amendment outlawing abortion, even in cases of rape, incest and threat to the life of the mother.
Speaking as Mrs. G's family's crazy uncle, try luring him into the attic with his favorite thing. Mine is Mexican food, but rape porn might work on him.
“Next we’ll be trying to take away the vote from women,” lamented Alex Castellanos, a Republican strategist who advised Romney in the 2008 race. “How can we be the party of cool and make the generational leap forward when we have these recidivist ideas at the very core of our base?”
PARTY OF COOL?!!!! Bwahahahaha! In a party that worships imbecility, Castellanos, who pronounces the l's instead of the y-sounding of Español thus denying his heritage, is fucking royalty! I've seen him go up against Rachel Maddow on Press The Meat and all he has to counter her smarts and facts are talking points and attempted put-downs. A true dildo.
The harshest truth-telling is saved for Palin 2.0.Paul Ryan, who teamed up with Akin in the House to sponsor harsh anti-abortion bills, may look young and hip and new generation, with his iPod full of heavy metal jams and his cute kids. But he’s just a fresh face on a Taliban creed (my ems) — the evermore antediluvian, anti-women, anti-immigrant, anti-gay conservative core. Amiable in khakis and polo shirts, Ryan is the perfect modern leader to rally medieval Republicans who believe that Adam and Eve cavorted with dinosaurs.
Dowd smartly references Mitt Romney’s embrace of anti-choice godfather ‘Dr.’ John Willke. I guess Alex Castellanos (“How can we be the party of cool and make the generational leap forward when we have these recidivist ideas at the very core of our base?”) took a sick day when the Romney campaign touted Dr. Strangelove as a supporter and surrogate in 2007.
Dowd ends by accurately calling Republicans dangerous liars.
