Tell people that the GOP is NUTS. Just plain NUTS. Don't beat around the bush. JUST SAY IT :-)

Last edited Sat Dec 22, 2012, 01:34 AM - Edit history (1)

One of the best things to come out of election 2012 was the beginning of a mainstream recognition, finally, that the GOP is NUTS. Not "conservative" nor even "very conservative". So far too many of us have been beating around the bush and wishywashing about it, but for Christ sakes folks, just SAY IT. And SAY IT clearly, plainly, and ALL THE TIME whenever you talk to other Dems/Progressives and to moderate Indies and to TeaPubs when they challenge you. SAY IT. Just SAY IT. And stand by it ! The GOP is "NUTS." (The more rational GOP of Ike and Rockefeller is dead and gone. Today's GOP is just plain NUTS.) (*ALSO WRITE IT AND SPREAD IT AS A VIRAL MEME.)

Think about it:

They are the party that absolutely refuses to compromise on ANYTHING. That is NUTS.

They are the party that says the answer to gun violence is massive proliferation of millions of more guns. That is NUTS.

They deny global warming in the face of vast scientific evidence. That is NUTS.

They deny science generally. That is NUTS.

They want to return to the 1950's on social issues and to the 1920's on fiscal issues. That is NUTS.

They are the party of Pills Limbaugh, Glenn BatShit Beck, Wild-Eyes Bachman, Twisted Sister Coulter ...in other words, a bunch of NUTS.

They are the party that chucks someone like Dick Lugar for a total NUT who thinks rape is a gift from god. It's NUTS.

They are the party that re-defines rape. That's NUTS.

They are willing to allow the nation to needlessly default. That's Nuts.

They had a Presidential candidate that sang "bomb bomb bomb Iran" with a mike on a stage. That's NUTS.

They had Sharon Angle as a Senate candidate. That is NUTS.

They had some "witch lady" as a Senate candidate. That is NUTS.

They refused to believe the polls and were truly shocked when RobMe got beat and beat but good. That is NUTS.

They STILL believe the President is a Kenyan-born Muslim. That is beyond racist. It is NUTS.

They believe ACORN is why Obama won in 2012 although ACORN no longer exists. That is NUTS.

They think Fox News is news. That is NUTS.

They are now eating their own over the fiscal cliff and their party is swirling down the toilet but fast. That is NUTS.

So when you get that asshole at work or that whacky old uncle going on about Dems and Obama being "socialists" and all the rest, just look them right in the eye and say, "You can rant all you want, but you GOT beat, you are going to continue to get BEAT, and it is exactly because your party is totally NUTS and what you are saying right now is NUTS. Now go away because no one is interested in your party which is NUTS." And in emails, blogs, social media, in letters to the editor, don't be afraid to say the GOP NUTS (or if you have to be a little nicer, say "TOTALLY REMOVED FROM REALITY" such as in letters to the editor). Enough of beating around the bush and being all wishy washy. They are NUTS. JUST SAY IT !

1. According to the NRA, everyone who's nuts must be put in a database.

Hand over your membership list, GOP!

although they're so scared of the Liberal Media label that they'll never admit this.

18. There is a very important concept in that. I have decided to approach all these GOP nuts

(including family) with complete derision, tell the speaker that I consider them to be idiots for spouting it, and then refuse to waste my time in discussion about such inane bullshit. No more polite attempts to find civility, no more trying to point out the holes in their arguments.

If all these people and ideas are greeted this way, they will lose steam. There is a "we're going to war with those who differ from us" mentality that feeds this crap.

If we just turn our backs on it and call it for the unacceptable nonsense that it is, I bet it will just deflate.

19. I gave the G.O.P. another name some time ago!!!!

R.I.P.= Ridiculously Ignorant Party!!!! I have been tired of entertaining there ridiculous bullshit. everyday we are fighting stupid rumors and rhetoric. Not facts or real issues to better the Country. Instead of celebrating New advances of Disposal for all these Shiny new gadgets we make, and waste disposal other than landfills and incineration, we are arguing if the President was born in the USA. Stupid!!!! It has been time for the American people to start talking with some sense. and we should not entertain nonsense rhetoric. If someone is a total Jackass then maybe they should be called such. and the GOP is absolutely as Batty as they get.

24. Crazy like foxes describes the GOP better

They're not nuts; their leaders are soulless psychopaths and want to make us think they're nuts so they can impose their will on us. The crazy talk is nothing but an act--they know exactly what they're doing.

In other words, the GOP followers may be crazy, but the leaders are JUST PLAIN EVIL.
