1. The problem with movements like that is.....

that you tend to lop off the low hanging fruit first, leaving the really ripe, rotten ones behind.

The "moderates" get cleaned out before the real radicals.

3. Rational folks have come to expect

the Teabillies to do one more round of STUPID before they leave the stage. Koch Bros.will do anything to keep their dream alive.

4. I got some RW/TeaBagger spam email today, freaking out about "stolen election"

complete with stories of e-voting machines that allegedly "flipped votes"
from Rmoney to Obama, like happened the other way around in some prior
elections where votes were flipping from D to Rs.

It was a weird experience being on the complete other end of the stick
on this one.

watching those cheating, vote-suppressing bastards talk about STOLEN ELECTIONS after they had a PRESIDENT INSTALLED INTO THE WHITE HOUSE is HILARIOUS

9. I totally agree. I think it's an especially perverse form of psychic "projection"

Obsessing and sounding the alarm about "Them" .. those "other" people who may
be "getting away" with doing the very forbidden thing that you yourself actually
ARE doing, but doing secretly and in hiding.

6. Works for me. Let them eat their own. Only the nutjobs will be left.

And very few will vote for them. Their party will be split and have as much relevance as the Whig Party does today.

7. I suggest we counter w investigations on election fraud & gerrymandering at the Cong Rep level

Put them on defensive and pin their ears back. Reveal them for the anti-American secret fascists they are, people who understand neither the letter nor the spirit of the Constitution and can only win by cheating.
