Imagine how quickly a Republican Press Secretary would have been out on his ass if he had ever said that about the "professional right".

Gibbs needs to go.

1. Except that those are somewhat mainstream Republican positions and not fringe.

10. Apparently so
If the republicans arent impressed by it (or if the administration feels they arent impressed by it) it is now considered fringe.

"We've included all the republican ideas in this healthcare bill"

11. HOLY FUCKING SHIT, YOU DID NOT JUST SAY THAT...
controlling a woman's body is not a fringe issue? wow! That'd be like saying, "They won't be happy until we have segregated schools and voting aptitude test", and you saying "Those are mainstram, but thanks for playin'."

Nice TRY.

FAIL.

Epic fail.

I believe I did say "mainstream Republican positions".

2. Not really, Gibbs put out a mainstream idea (Canadian style health care)
and joined it with a wacko idea (eliminating the Pentagon) in order to disparage both.

"They won't be satisfied until we have prayer in schools and women are legally prevented from leaving the kitchen," might be an equivalent statement.

8. Leaving the UN is fairly mainstream now that they've adopted
so much of the Bircher nonsense. Mine is better.

4. So the equivalent might be
deficit reduction and elimination of the income tax?
