On Being A Republican




On Being A Republican

by BarbinMD

From the Washington Post, on what it means to be a Republican today:

Who am I? Why am I? Where am I going?

Comedy.

And as Republicans gather in Washington D.C. to pick the next leader of their dysfunctional party, the theme is:

Republican for a Reason

They don't however, give any reasons. Said a committeeman from Iowa:

Republican for a reason? I don't know what that means.

Neither does anyone else.


:rofl:

3. You don't get it.
They were there all set up to solicit suggestions.


My suggestion for a reason: Because you're crazier than a shithouse rat.

4. Loved the last line in the article....
...when an obviously comely woman asks one of these clowns who he is and the asshat answers, "Brad Pitt."

Republicants, liars to the bitter end.

6. I remember Paul Begala saying before the election
When democrats lose we go into a hut and smoke some pot and think about who we are.

When republicans lose they get out the knives and start stabbing each other. I think they are going to lose and I'm going to really enjoy watching them stab one another.
