"SNIP.............................................

In the coming months, Republican lawmakers will be fighting tooth and nail against the agenda President Obama laid out during Tuesday's inaugural address: his call to action on equality, immigration reform, reducing gun violence, protecting social programs, addressing climate change and more.

And Republican Rep. Justin Amash of Michigan neatly explains why the upcoming fights might be a problem for the GOP:


The public is not behind us, and thatís a real problem for our party.

Unfortunately, Republicans don't give a damn what the public wants. And that's a real problem for the country.

..............................................SNIP"

Republicans hate women, minorities, seniors, union members, first responders, returning military personnel, and equality.

9. Yep, after I posted I realized I also forgot teh gays.

But, if I included every single group that Republicans hated, there would be like 5 people left in the whole country that they don't hate. They just don't know they hate everyone, because sometimes it's not obvious a person belongs to a group on their hate list.

10. The term "gerrymandering" has been around for 200 years.

How many times has the majority changed hands since then?

Gerrymandering only works in the short term. Sooner or later, they have to figure out how to actually win an election.
