Republicans 7

Little Erick, in the throes of almost year-long deep depression, asks this question:

Have conservatives entered a suicide pact? Has the Republican Party, as a whole, done the same?

Yes, Erick, you have. This is what happens when you spend decades paying lip service to fundamentalism and oligarchy. This is what happens when you think labeling at least half your countrymen as traitors and subhumans is good strategy. This is what happens when you switch to the alternative fuels of hate and fear without doing any of that icky science beforehand to see if it was even a good idea in the first place.

And it's not like you haven't been warned, by no less than the people who originated some of these modern GOP tactics and strategies, that this would end up biting you in the ass. But since you've spent most of the last 40 years winning, you ignored it. But what you need to do, once you get your asses handed to you next year in an election that was only ever yours to lose, is sit the fuck down and do nothing else but some really hard thinking and soul searching, because shit like this

We do not have anyone on our side making the moral case for the free market.

The problem is that candidate, Jon Huntsman, decided to launch his campaign by giving conservatives a middle finger as he raced to get on The View.

we would be crazy not to reconsider Perry

It is hard to dislike a guy who can filet his opponent with a smile and a side of fava beans and a nice chianti.

...shows that you have zero clue of what the problems you're facing are.

Considering I'd rather not be infested with lice, scabies, or have to shit on the street... FUCK YOU, I'm joining the 1%.

Considering the 99 percent actually shower or bathe more than you, are more employed than most Americans, and are more ethnically diverse than the Tea Party (tm), I guess you can live in your fantasy depiction of them.

Bet you think Panetta was right today and we're "winning" in Afghanistan, while Pakistan has cut our supply routes and is actively helping with logistics and intel for attack on our troops, huh?

Barbara Boxer: Republicans want to kill 8100 people for Christmas [realclearpolitics.com].

Stop being a partisan tool, Cap. Both sides suck.

What demonization are you talking about? Or do you think that when one side is utterly reprehensibly irresponsible they shouldn't be called out on it? I assume you think that torture or war shouldn't be criticized except on minor technical non-humanity points too.
