15. The GOP doesn't care. I know that we care.

I hope the independents and other people in the electorate care. But I don’t know that they do.

One of our friends rants and raves about the hypocrisy of the GOP. “They say one thing and do another,” he says. “They’re just big hypocrites.”

And my reply is the same. “And this surprises you? When are you going to stop expecting the GOP to do the right thing?”

I’m tired of people marveling about how hypocritical the party is. Not because it’s not true, but because it is a waste of time.

He then talks about how the parties got along and how the GOP used to be different. He’s 61, and perhaps he has experienced a different GOP.

I am in my late forties, and my experience seeing how the GOP operates has been consistent. They are dishonorable, lying and destructive cowards. They’re more showy about it now, but they’re the same at the core. It just different degrees of assholery.
