The Recipe for a Republican Politician
By: Hrafnkell HaraldssonSep. 11th, 2012more from Hrafnkell Haraldsson
Let’s say you wanted to whip together a Republican today, a procedure that requires a recipe. You’d have to ask yourself, “What goes into making a Republican anyway?” Well,there are a few simple ingredients, none of them savory, unfortunately:
These ingredients (and I could add others by giving hatred of government its own category, or crony capitalism), we might call them symptoms, together create a perfect storm for America in 2012, a repeal not only of all liberal governance since the New Deal, but a repeal of the Enlightenment’s basis for America itself and a return instead to a pre-Constitution, politically fragmented, religiously bigoted Puritan America. How you can call something that precedes America “pro-American” and something that supports the Constitution “anti-American” is anybody’s guess, but that’s where the dishonesty and hypocrisy come in full force.
So that’s your Republican politician of 2012. You can season to taste since there are always going to be those who are a little more dishonest or a little more racist or a little more religiously bigoted, but they will all have every ingredient listed here. I can’t actually suggest using this recipe, since the result tastes like shit, and you’ll get sick besides and not having any healthcare, you’ll die. But hey, it’s a free country…so far.
