TAIBBI: GOP Worst Week Ever: Like Watching 3 Stooges Perform Liver Transplant On Roller Skates

Conservatives Have Their Worst Week Ever
By Matt Taibbi, Rolling Stone
24 January 12

Watching America's political conservatives try to counter-maneuver opposite Barack Obama's re-inauguration over the course of the last week has been an incredible comedy - like watching the Three Stooges try to perform a liver transplant on roller skates.

...............

But after Sandy Hook, the Democrats have skillfully painted the Republicans as the party of scary-looking and scary-sounding white maniacs like Tennessee security-company CEO James Yeager, a shaven-headed, soul-patched anger-sick white loony who posted a video promising to go ape if gun laws are enacted. "If this goes one inch further, I'm going to start killing people," Yeager said.

Conservatives could have dealt with this post-Sandy Hook political curveball in a number of ways, from simply shutting up and working quietly behind the scenes to scuttle gun control efforts (that always worked before) to announcing willingness to engage in some extremely mild compromise (like maybe prohibiting schizophrenics from carrying machine guns near kindergartens).

Instead, they decided to piss all over Martin Luther King Day and then shoot themselves by the half-dozen in the process.

1. Can Taibbi be forgiven now for telling the truth about the new SEC head?

Or is he still under the bus?

4. Not yet. And his Stooges/liver transplant metaphor never.

Hunter, I miss you. Smite this Matt Taibbi guy from the other plane...or bless him with some talent. It's killing me.

2. As far as I'm concern

the GOP is made up of almost all white folks of which the white men suffer from what is known as "whiney ass white man syndrome"!!!
