BWAHAHA! Joe Klein on Hardball just said the Repubs are doubling down on the Koolaid...
and that it's close to Jonestown time!

That's one way to summarize the downfall of the GOP! :rofl:

3. That pretty much says it all
I can't imagine that what they're doing now is a winning strategy.

7. not sure what you mean, but this is how I look at it...
say if my 12 year old read this kool-aid/Jonestown thing and how its been used for so long, and actually went to see what this Jonestown incident was all about. How could I explain that its become a comedy routine?

yeh, i'm a fussbucket for stuff like that.

8. I know what you mean and actually cringed for a moment when he said it...
But the ones I felt sorry for in Jonestown were the kids who suffered because of wacko parents.

11. Fair enough. It was in poor taste. But the analogy strikes a nerve to what's going on in the GOP..
blind followers that can be instantly pushed to a violent limit...
