Republicans: The Lost Party (political)

I especially like the part where Romney claims that the Republicans are the party of the revolutionaries and Democrats are the “party of the Monarchists” the ultimate irony being that both he a Jeb Bush are heirs to their Fathers’ political fortunes and influence.

Hath Mitt NO SHAME?

Link – As the party comes to grips with its status as a regional political force that cannot hold historically Republican districts in New York, cannot keep a five-term senator from Pennsylvania in the caucus, and cannot appear to stem the popularity of a Democratic president who has made inroads in the West, throughout the Midwest, and even in pockets of the South.

Jon Stewart had a segment last night entitled “Republicans: The Lost Party” and stories like this one only serve to feed that narrative as the party feeds on itself. In Illinois, we have seen the circular firing squad that is the state GOP keep the party down for most of this century — the state chair is inevitably the subject of scathing criticism from within, and finger-pointing is the rule rather than the exception. The same dynamics now appear to be at work in the RNC.

It couldn’t happen to a nicer group of people.

Maybe the circular firing squad IS the best strategy.

    I’m beginning to wonder if the Obama political people are just toying with the GOP. It’s as if David Axelrod leaned back in his chair one afternoon and said, “I know, let’s see if we can get Republicans to condemn the concept of empathy.”

    Senator Orrin Hatch, on ABC’s “This Week”:

    “[President Obama] said that a judge has to be a person of empathy,” Hatch said. “What does that mean? Usually that’s a code word for an activist judge.”

    And “activist judge” is a GOP code word for pro-choice.

    So you are telling me that you American progressives are getting your direction from a comedian from the Comedy Channel?

    We are in far more trouble than I realized.

    Actually Brit, progressives are getting their humor from a comedian on Comedy Central. Big difference!

    I don’t FEEL like a Monarchist.
