My INTERVENTION SESSION for the TeaCRAZY GOPers who just won't admit why they LOST:

Well GOPers, here you are in the aftermath of your electoral pummeling, and you are of course blaming everyone and everything except YOURSELVES. This is called classic DENIAL. You are ADDICTS. You are addicted to a self-imposed TeaRadical worldview, recursively swirled through your minds within your FAKE-News/Rush LimpMind bubble, that has left you ANGRY, OLD, MOSTLY MALE, WHITE, RURAL, DEFEATED, and DELUSIONAL. You must FACE REALITY. YOU HAVE A PROBLEM and YOU NEED HELP. Your huge electoral loss was more a SUICIDE than a defeat from the outside. So, here is your INTERVENTION:

1) YOU HAVE A PROBLEM when two thirds of your party believes the President is not a real citizen.

2) YOU HAVE A PROBLEM when the unemployment rate is at 7.9%, you win 61% of the white vote, and yet lose the popular vote by almost 3 million and also lose by 126 electoral votes.

3) YOU HAVE A PROBLEM when 93% of African Amerians vote against you.

4) YOU HAVE A PROBLEM when 71% of Hispanics vote against you.

5) YOU HAVE A PROBLEM when a solid majority of Asian Americans vote against you.

6) YOU HAVE A PROBLEM when a solid majority of women vote against you.

7) YOU HAVE A PROBLEM when a super majority of young single women vote against you.

8) YOU HAVE A PROBLEM when a large majority of young voters in general vote against you.

9) YOU HAVE A PROBLEM when you spend well over a billion dollars, outspending your opponents, and you still lose.

10) YOU HAVE A PROBLEM when you try to suppress voters all over the country, and you still lose.

11) YOU HAVE A PROBLEM when you tell Hispanics to "self-deport," condemn the DREAM Act, write off African Americans, and launch wars against women, gay people, the working class, and anyone not just like you.

12) YOU HAVE A PROBLEM when way too many of you are ethnocentric, egocentric, and downright racist.

13) YOU HAVE A PROBLEM when you call anyone who disagrees with you a "socialist," "communist," and "marxist."

14) YOU HAVE A PROBLEM when you continue to think that just giving more tax cuts to millionaires and trashing all regulations will result in broadbased prosperity, all in the face of vast evidence to the contrary.

15) YOU HAVE A PROBLEM when you say you are "fiscally responsible" yet squander budget surpluses on needless tax cuts for the rich, wars, needless corporate tax cuts and other giveaways of all kinds, and pro-corporate drug bills all on the national credit card.

16) YOU HAVE A PROBLEM when you claim to hate social programs yet you use VAST numbers of social programs and services YOURSELF day in and day out, and you LOVE them, and you SCREECH if they are cut.
(i.e. Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, workers' comp, unemployment benefits, education, the military, etc. etc. etc.)

17) YOU HAVE A PROBLEM when you claim to love God and Jesus, yet you demonize and loathe so many people from the poor, to minorities, to gays, to people of other religions, and on and on and on, and you dance for joy every time a billionaire gets a tax cut and every time a polluter pollutes and every time a new war is started.

18) YOU HAVE A PROBLEM when you pledge allegiance to Grover Norquist, ALEC, and the Koch Brothers instead of to the American people.

19) YOU HAVE A PROBLEM when you screech about "liberty" and "freedom" and yet support rights suppression efforts and laws of all kinds.

20) YOU HAVE A PROBLEM when your ONLY sources of information are the TeaRADICAL bubble outlets, such as the HeadRushLimpMind show and FAKE-NOISE, that just tell you what you want to hear and reinforce your radical worldview.

So, what should your treatment plan be? Get on a 12-Step program that begins by getting some real information outside the TeaRadical echo-chamber, find a social conscience, and look to your more honorable roots as espoused by folks like Ike, Chase Smith, and Rockefeller. Or, don't, and continue to whither on the vine as the rest of the nation grows WAY past you and leaves you to gather dust like old museum relics. Your choice.

1. They do have a problem. Well put. Rs, YOU HAVE A PROBLEM when you won't allow your

children to listen to OUR president for fear that he will hypnotize them. YOU HAVE A PROBLEM when
OUR president has Czars yet President Bush had Czars too. YOU HAVE A PROBLEM when you criticize OUR president for trying to get the USA to host the Olympics. Fellow Duers -- keep adding to the list.
