Quote of the Day


"It is no secret we had a number of Republicans damage our brand this year with offensive, bizarre comments -- enough of that. It’s not going to be the last time anyone says something stupid within our party, but it can’t be tolerated within our party. We’ve also had enough of this dumbed-down conservatism. We need to stop being simplistic, we need to trust the intelligence of the American people and we need to stop insulting the intelligence of the voters."

-- Bobby Jindal

On the one hand, Jindal's right. On the other, getting Bobby Jindal to carry this message for you is like getting Ronald McDonald to try to scold you into eating less crap.

The GOP should, perhaps, change its symbol from the elephant to the etch-a-sketch.

So DON'T talk about "forcible rape". "Forcible exorcism" is still okay. Especially "amateur forcible exorcism"--you can put that shit in your autobiography.

I am doubly offended by the sudden "coming to Jesus" moment all these conservatives seem to be having now that they got spanked. Jindal has "had enough of this dumbed-down conservatism?"..."it can't be tolerated?"

Really?

Where were these guys over the last several years, when coming out against the teabaggers, yahoos, and right wing lunatics in their party might have actually demonstrated having a pair of balls?

Actually the symbol should probably of a white guy with grey hair shooting himself in the foot with a large gun.
