Interesting that on the final day of the annual fantasy called the Conservative Political Action Conference, the rabid right wing trotted out the laughable Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann to claim the Republicans better serve women because “we are the party, the only party, that had a woman on the Presidential ballot this century.”
Bachmann, of course, was referring to former Vice Presidential GOP candidate Sarah Palin, the cocaine-snorting, basketball-bedding bimbo who couldn’t even complete a single-term as governor of Alaska and who, incredibly, served as keynote speaker for the gathering of the uninformed unenlightened and unworthy of serious consideration.
Bachmann threw in “this century” so she could fail to acknowledge that the alte Congresswoman Geraldine Ferraro was the first female candidate for vice president “last century” (as in 1984).
If Bachmann and Palin are the best the GOP has to offer on their feminine side of the political fence, then the GOP’s self-admitted struggle to connect with female voters is both laughable and hopelessly lost.
The GOP, hopelessly controlled by the most ignorant and intolerant cretins in the American political universe, is not only out-of-touch with voters but also with reality.
Consider the lineup that inflicted the conference with rhetorical refuse on CPAC’s closing days — Bachman, Palin, disgraced womanizer and former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich and Texas imbecile Ted Cruz, who masquerades as a United States Senator.
CPAC is a conference devoted to the fringe elements of ultra-conservatives that define the Republican Party nowadays. They live in a cradle of negativism defined by the self-serving billionaire Koch Brothers.
Dana Milbank of The Washington Post noted that the Koch Brothers paid for a row of talk radio booths aimed at the sole purpose of undermining healthcare reform.
Other booths featured tirades against the United Nations, American Association of Retired Persons, the federal reserve. One could hear obscenities shouted about gay marriage, abortion, unions, bilingualism and, of course, the Federal Reserve.
Ranted Cruz to anyone stupid enough to listen: “We need to repeal every single word of Obamacare.” Cruz, of course, won’t say what should be offered in its place because solutions are never part of any right-wing rhetoric — only mindless opposition to anything that hints at progress or pragmatism.
The clueless participants at CPAC enthusiastically applauded the likes of combover king and frequently bankrupt (of both funds and reality) Donald Trump, who continued to promote the discredited “birther” movement that inaccurately questions the citizenship of President Barack Obama and who referred to “the late, great Jimmy Carter,” who — of course — is still alive.
Such madness and inattention to facts are hallmarks of the rabid right and CPAC, which a friend and long-time Republican once said should stand for “Constantly Putrid Archaic Crackpots.”
