73. The discredited republican party of 2008
Our party was compelled/seduced by the corporate and wealthy elites to resuscitate the republican party so that the republican party could force "bipartisan" "solutions" to our problems.

Because if these odious solutions weren't being sold as "bipartisan" the citizenry would wake up to the fact that elections count for far less than they thought.

Without the republican party as the bad guy our weak willed representatives would be seen as being merely acting under orders rather than being backed into a corner.

This is what it boils down to, imo.
