Phil Moskowitz: I still don't believe anyone named Reince Priebus actually exists. This was something made up by Russia Today to make the GOP look like twats.


Remove all the vowels from his name and it RNC PR BS  now tell me he isn't an engineered life form created with the purpose of leading the RNC

Aarontology: Wooly Bully: Holding the line against same-sex marriage, the letter argues, would allow Republicans to make better inroads, for instance, into more traditionally-minded corners of the African American community.

Somewhere, buried deep within parts of the country we've long ignored, are hidden pockets of the valuable fuel our party needs to survive. Drill, baby, drill, for that sweet oil of bigotry!

For example, they'll send RAND PAUL to Howard University to talk down to black college students


GOP Bigwhig: We need to work on our minority outreach, fellas. Any ideas?

RAND PAUL: I'll go explain to some black kids that if only they weren't so ignorant of American history, they'd know liberals are the real racists.

GOP Bigwhig: Aren't you the one who said the Constitution guarantees a right to racial discrimination in public accommodations?

RAND PAUL: It does.

GOP Bigwhig: Terrific. Get to it, then.

America - Where taxpayers give pensions and healthcare to millionaires for life to decide what to take away from taxpayers that work 6 or 7 days a week just to make ends meet so they can give tax breaks to their wealthy friends that bankrupted the country at least twice while their supporters call us lazy hippies for pointing it out.

Better him than Michael Steele, no?


Strip clubs and everything, you've gotta admit the Republicans won more elections when Michael Steele was in charge than this Riced Prius guy.

You think this is some kind of joke, GOP? You think I'm playing around here? Well, you can just forget about me voting for anyone with an "R" after his name who wasn't astroturfed by the Koch bros. I'm being dead serious: I absolutely cannot and will not vote for anyone with an "R" after his name who wasn't astroturfed by the Koch bros. So, yeah.... better think twice on that.

One of this week's Doonesburies has a guy taking a call from Reince Priebus and asks his secretary "who?" She replies "GOP chairman" and he says "Oh, *that* Reince Priebus". Cracks me up.

The Snow Dog: If the Republicans want to actually be a viable entity in the future it's time they told their ignorant douchebag loudmouth party-members to take a walk. They hog the limelight and give the rest of the party a bad name.


...so the ten bad apples are poisoning the one good one?  Good to know.

dickfreckle: Smart people understand that if social conservatives create their own faction, Dems will win for at least 20 years. Neither the establishment nor the Tea People/Thumpers are going anywhere on their own.


Don't forget though, if the GOP jettisons their nutjob wing, it'll be tough going at first, but eventually they can go to a more libertarian platform that (for some reason) seems to excite a large portion of the US to the state of giddy school girls.

bugontherug: Almost Everybody Poops: Aarontology: The social conservatives won't abandon the GOP, and the GOP won't do a goddamned thing to push them out.

They'll just claim they're taking a more libertarian stance because RAND PAUL thinks people should serve a little less jail time for having weed.

Curious, where did the whole capitalization of RON and RAND PAUL originate from?

RON PAUL'S support has been characterized as "a mile deep but an inch wide." Meaning his followers love him, but he has little appeal to anyone other than them. The capitalization may have originated with actual Paulites showing enthusiastic support. Today, most people do it to poke fun at Paulite fanaticism.


I do it to poke fun at a Paulite fanaticism.  In addition, I like to use DOCTOR Ron Paul as I've heard that Ron being a doctor lends credence to his views on a myriad of subjects.  I presume that these people don't know that many doctors personally.

The Social Conservatives are no longer able to provide the votes that the GOP needs, and the GOP has never really delivered on their promise to fight for Conservative values.

Seems like a mutually unsatisfying relationship. I don't think this marriage can be saved.
