Plea For Repug Sanity? Bwahahahaha!

Truthout

The OxyContin and Viagra-soaked brain of Rush Limbaugh is warning of the coming self-destruction of the Republican Party. But, former Republican insider and Reagan staffer Bruce Bartlett knows the grim truth: The Republican Party has already destroyed itself.
Halle-fuckin'-lujah!

Yes, by raising taxes, Rush Limbaugh’s Republican Party – that Party that’s denied thirty years of economic reality, attempted to set up an Ayn Randian paradise in America, and fear mongered everything from Muslims to socialists to gays to women – will indeed destroy itself.
...

As Eisenhower wrote to his brother Edgar, in 1954, “Should any political party attempt to abolish social security, unemployment insurance, and eliminate labor laws and farm programs, you would not hear of that party again in our political history. There is a tiny splinter group, of course, that believes you can do these things…a few Texas oil millionaires, and an occasional politician or business man from other areas. Their number is negligible and they are stupid.”
Ike knew.These days, their number may still be negligible, but their money is not and they are worse than stupid.

“As long as you've got crazy Tea Party people who for some reason vote against their own direct economic interest and support the billionaires against themselves, we’re kind of stuck,” he lamented.

Unfortunately, it’s not just the Republican Party that’s stuck. As long as those “crazy people” are running the people’s House of Representatives, the American people are stuck, too, watching helplessly as our nation unravels, and waiting anxiously for Bartlett’s “Reality-Based Community” of Republicans to rise again.
Yes, I just linked to The American Conservative. So sue me.

The nation needs more than one political party, but the current Repug party is not one of them. They can keep waiting 'til I'm long gone.

I'm-Sorry-I-Couldn't-Resist-I'll-Pay-For-The-Bleach Update:

Republican leaders let Rush Limbaugh dominate their party

Remember it's not just Rush, He is paid to do this. He's just an entertainer, like fox news is entertainment. These people get their news, their ideas of what to say, from "someone" and they will do it for "money" whether it's right or wrong, they don't care. Like "carson" and others foisted a "joke" on the public, they are also foisting a "joke" on the public for ratings. Ratings mean dollars to them and who they work for. Right now look to the ownership of the "company" who has the contract for Rush, I believe it is called clear channel, who owns the media company, who has to get a "billion" dollar payout for them to stay on the air, and who is heavily invested in bad news, Romney +
Murdock. Gee, i think i've heard of them before. And their advertisers. I think i'll buy less of their stuff.

Thanks for the giggle at the cartoon. Now, since all those tender-conscienced pharmacy sorts don't want to pass out contraceptives? We need some hard ass progressive pharmacists who inquire whether the prescription hold is Republican. If the answer is "yes"...they get a bottle of aspirin and instructions.

FauxNews is "entertainment" about like syphilis is.

Hello Gordon,

Actually given a choice between syphilis and FauxNoise I'll take syphalis any day because it is easier to cure.
