Assistant Quote of the Day
"We’re expecting over the next 22 months to be the focus of this administration as they attempt to annihilate the Republican Party... And let me just tell you, I do believe that is their goal, to just shove us into the dustbin of history."
-- John Boehner in a closed speech yesterday to the Ripon Society, a conservative think tank in Washington, DC
If the Republicans weren't one of this country's two major political parties it would be hysterical how utterly lost they are.
No, Boehner, you blubbering idiot, Obama isn't out to "annihilate" your party because he doesn't have to -- you're doing that just fine on your own. Your version of outreach in the face of assured demographic extinction is this kind of horseshit: continuing to fear-monger in the hope of somehow -- what? -- encouraging your dwindling base of bitter, resentful white men to breed more? Yeah, good luck with that.
You're right about one thing: You are being slowly relegated to the dustbin of history. But for that you have no one to blame by yourselves.
By the way, Matt Taibbi has a great post currently up at Rolling Stone that takes a look at what he amusingly calls the "worst week ever" for conservatives. As you might expect it's worth a read.
