Turns out there are worse things you can do than be a Kenyan Muslim anti-colonialist. Okay, maybe not worse, but still something to fear. Mormonism! Cue the ominous music, the plural marriages and strange underwear. This, my dears, we cannot have.
With the Iowa Caucus upon us we can see that the GOP has become trapped by its own extreme narrative, depriving any victor of national appeal
We all seem to make New Year’s resolutions, so here are a few recommended resolutions for our Republican friends.
Gingrich began his attack by declaring that Obama is “not one of us.” He’s one of “them.” He is feeding on the birther meme that Obama is not American at all.
As the historical facts - the actual facts - are inconvenient, Beck, like other Republicans, have fabricated a history more congenial to Republican ideology.
Would Jeb Bush run as an establishment Republican or as a Tea Partier? It is unlikely but not impossible he could successfully straddle the fence but it is a hazardous course. Ideological purity is the prime motivator in Republican politics these days, and a soft stance which would gain Latino voters would lose WASP voters.
This morning on MSNBC's "Morning Joe" Joe Scarborough and team of analysts laughed hysterically at Newt Gingrich's birther statements regarding our President. They tried to stop, and even went so far as to read Newt's entire quote to make sure he wasn't being quoted out of context, but his entire statement was even more crazy. Hilarity ensued as the entire panel laughed at Newt.
It's hard to keep up with the Republicans these days. They're a regular three-ring circus being lead around by leaders like Sarah Palin, Rush Limbaugh and Glenn Beck -- two out of three of whom we know didn't finish college. We haven't seen Palin's degree from the 5th or 6th college she attended, but recklessly, we are taking her word that she graduated. Personally, I'm still waiting to see her high school diploma, but that's just me. At any rate, with leaders like this, it's no wonder that the Republicans are going up in flames.
