My once beloved Republican Party has become a character of itself. Conservatives have become a caricature of themselves, living down to the far left’s lowest comedic expectations. In order to maintain their choke hold on the economy, to make Obama look bad, the GOP in the House and Senate are willing to do anything, including do harm to our national security.
The far right likes to refer to the Far Left Hate Machine, but, strange thing, now that I’ve managed to get to know just oodles of Dems, liberals, progressives, and really liberal leftists on Twitter, you know, they’re nicer than the far right! The right likes to refer to them as a hate machine, but they’re not. The far right is. Then again, we’re coming to understand that the right now has a tendency to blame everyone for what they are doing, themselves.
I don’t get this whole Ben Carson thing. The only reason the far right is loving on him is because he acted like a rude jerk at the National Prayer Breakfast, telling off the President of the United States. I don’t care who the POTUS is, you don’t do that, not to his face, and not in public. Eartha Kitt once did that to LBJ. Even my parents, who detested LBJ were shocked and outraged. It literally destroyed her career. The same thing should happen to Carson, contrary to what Rush Limbaugh thinks.
“...Carson, who has become a celebrity in recent months among the right-wing media, has come under fire in the media and from members of the Hopkins community since comparing gay relationships with pedophilia and bestiality during a Fox News appearance earlier this week….”
I’m not quite sure how the students of Johns Hopkins University not wanting Carson as a speaker at the medical school’s commencement is a sign that we’ve lost the country. But Rush Limbaugh thinks he has. If the right doesn’t get a grip on Gay and Lesbian marriage they are going to lose it. They already are. I’m sorry, but I just don’t get it. For someone like Rush Limbaugh, to wax poetic about the sanctity of marriage is something of a joke.
Where oh where do we start?
- An Alaskan GOP says the Exxon Valdez was not the company’s fault, wants big tax cut for big oil
- The head of the GOP in GA thinks strait people will be seduced by the dark side of the gay force
- Breitbart & FOX is trying to make trouble for another Episcopalian priest
- In TN they want to tie welfare to children’s grades
- The Right went nuts over Google honoring Casar Chavez
- Ted Cruz says Medicaid expansion would put criminals back on the streets
- Rep. Lou Barletta (R-PA) says immigrants are turning American into a sinking ship
The worst part of all of this is that it is just the beginning of the week! Lord Have Mercy! The worst part of all of this is these headlines came out of Monday’s news. Monday was April Fool’s Day. I’m not laughing because none of these were jokes.
