Powell: Republican leaders should stop ‘idiot presentations’ from Palin and birthers

By: David Edwards

Former Secretary of State Colin Powell is calling on fellow Republicans to and speak against “idiot presentations” by people like former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin and the so-called birthers who insist that President Barack Obama is not a U.S. citizen.

...

“The Republicans have to stop buying into things that demonize the president,” he explained. “I mean, why aren’t Republican leaders shouting out about all this birther nonsense and all these other things? They’re silent. We should speak out.”

“This is the kind of intolerance that I’ve been talking about, where these idiot presentations continue to be made and you don’t see the senior leadership of the party saying, ‘No, that’s wrong,’"

Idiot presentations, love it!

7. Easy! Because all of the republicans ARE idiots, that's all that's left of the republican

party, Colin. The smarts ones have all left. So, idiots are talking and listening to idiots ... it all sounds good to them.

4. I want them to continue with those 'idiot presentations.'

I hope they continue doing that through the next Presidential election, at least. It can't hurt.

6. They're not shouting about it because they don't think it's wrong

Powell should have learned that about Republicans when they made him lie to the world.
