Is it me or has the GOP gone insane?

 What a week. Our president wows and woos Europe to everyone’s relief, and even gets brittle relationships with China and Russia on track and  far more manageable and workable. In response, Rush Limbaugh claims that Obama’s absence is the reason for any rise in the stock market. Oh, and Barack is busy infecting Gordon Brown’s asshole, in case you missed the latest Rushism. 

Eric Cantor claims that the economy is just fine, thank you very much, despite unemployment approaching 9%, and Rush Limbaugh has great ideas for the GOP and the country. He also thinks that the GOP will have a majority in the House in 2010. If whatever Eric is smoking also helps with chronic back pain, pass it down here, dude. 

A greedy, conniving criminal, Ted Stevens, is released by a DEMOCRATIC DOJ, because the GOP prosecutors who put him rightly in jail were so unethical, that the conviction simply could not stand. His release does not change the fact that the man’s a serious crook. It does confirm that many of the GOPers in DOJ are incompetent boobs who should lose their licenses.  Hiding exculpatory evidence and witnesses from the defense? It almost seemed as though the GOP prosecutors tried to louse up this case on purpose. 

The Alaskan GOP response? They want a mulligan for last year’s election. Excuse me, but can you say "Don Siegelman?" A new election simply because a crook was convicted by truly pathetic Republican prosecutors? 

Mike Steele proves that insanity is contagious.  The more he says, the less sense he makes. If nothing else, he truly is the face of the new, regional GOP. He claimed that they would win NY-20 hands down. Now that it appears that a Democrat will score an upset, obviously, fraud has to be involved. Mike promises to keep us guessing in the future. Be still my heart. 

And then, we have Sarah Palin. Enough said about her. Even the GOP disinvited this maroon from an upcoming conference. 

What is stranger than the GOP acting like a bunch of rabid, mentally challenged reprobates is how the media is reacting to this incredible display of non-stop idiocy. The MSM takes the current GOP madness and nonsense seriously, without comment, or even a smirk.  The geriatric, regional party known as the GOP does provide one thing – grand entertainment for those not afflicted with neoconmanism or other serious mental illnesses. 

Imagine, though, how our corporate media would react if any democratic leader acted like these buffoons. We’d never hear the end of it.

    Insane in the wrong word, macabre-ly clever I think is more accurate.

    Rush Limbaugh is trying to unite hate of them, Muslims and Spanish immigrants against us which includes Israel but conceivable not England. People should try to corner him whether Prime Minister Gordon Brown is part of the problem.

    German history has shown that under total desperation Rush’s blame game could become very popular.

    Bin Laden vowed to drive US troops out of Sacred Saudi soil, and got his wish in 2003 when Bush withdrew US forces. But he was cheated out of coming home to the cheers of the Saudi people. So he had to plan attacks elsewhere in the world in order to try to be able be in the in-crowd in Arabia again. But the US imagined a steady determination to attack the US. Meanwhile Cheney is preaching there will be a horrible new attack because Obama likes civil liberties. Are we criticizing Obama’s Afghan policy in such a way that it won’t benefit Rush?

    According to William Black an expert on the Savings and Loan Scandal, the economic problem today is similar fraud and leaving the crooks in charge to hide the true danger won’t work. His interview on Bill Moyers Journal mentions amazing similarities. Google, “William K. Black: CSI Bailout”. Republicans cleverly didn’t vote for the bailout. Again are we criticizing Obama’s use of band-aids and reluctance to draw blood in such a way that it won’t benefit Rush?

    Nicely stated, Griff.

    What’s so hard about understanding what government truly is?

    What’s so difficult in see the parties for what they are?

    What’s so profoundly insane is that We the People have allowed the Republic for Which it Stands…to become the type of government we have today.

    I think that people in the U.S., by in large, would be so much more happier if the Government converted totally to a Theocracy. That way that wouldn’t have to admit that they turned the Republic over to dictators. Hmmmm, they can’t admit that they’ve turned it over to a legalized form of organized crime.

    IMHO…it’s the American people who have gone insane. The government, parites, politicians are the ones who have it altogether.

    The legal definition of insanity is the inability to distinguish right from wrong.

    “What is stranger than the GOP acting like a bunch of rabid, mentally challenged reprobates is how the media is reacting to this incredible display of non-stop idiocy.”

    Add yourself among the mentally challenged. Rush Limbaugh is a radio host, for the millionth time. Like his sheep-like following and the party he proclaims to represent, he is nothing more than distractive entertainment, and should be treated as such.

    The whole lot of them, Republicans and Democrats alike, are nothing more than neo-liberal fascists. As Jesse Ventura likes to point out, our politicians are much like the WWE. They pretend to hate each other when the cameras are rolling, but they all hang out later and drink up, all the while reveling at the ease in which they pull of this charade.

    This government is nothing short of a criminal enterprise cleverly disguised as legitimate government. Both parties are partners in crime, two-bit players in a Hegelian power-sharing scheme, whether some of them know it or not.
