As a result of having my head in boxes for the last two weeks, I have not paid close attention to what has been going on in the newly GOP controlled House of Representatives.
Which, as it turns out is a real pity. As I have missed what amounts to comedy gold, courtesy of the the Teabagging Wingnuts of the new Republican majority. The always brilliant Rachel Maddow brings us all up to speed on the latest fun and frolic...
Wow....Just when you think the well of wingnutty-ness has run dry, the GOP rises to the challenge and doubles down on the crazy. Lets review. shall we?
According to Donald Trump, (yes, the really bad hair guy, Donald Trump) President Obama was not born in the US because there are (according to him) no pictures of the young Barack Obama prior to age 13. BARACK OBAMA PICTURES: The early years - chicagotribune.com - Opps.
THEN, we have our current involvement in Libya. Remember back in oh... say 2002 and 2003 when ANYONE criticized the war in Iraq, the greater Wingnuttia went berserk with shrieks of How DARE you criticize the Commander-in-Chief in a time of war, you traitorous America-hating, troop-hating commie bastard! Why do you want the terrorist to WIN?!
Fast forward to 2011, It now seems as if our dear right-wing patriots are only patriotic when the GOP holds the keys to the Oval Office
And now, we have the glorious MYTH that somehow the GOP now cares about and is focused on, JOBS. Hmmm really?
The Republican Party is now a very bad, very sad joke. One silver lining in all this, is that once the cirque du' insanity that will be the 2012 GOP Presidential Primaries is over, America will most likely re-elect Barack Obama with the largest plurality since 1984, when Ronald Reagan stomped on Walter Mondale like a bug at an exterminator convention.
