born_yesterday: ADD HIM TO THE LIST!!!!
ambassador_ahab: Let's not forget the republicans in Tennessee who threw a fit over a mop drain because they were worried it was some kind of Muslim foot-wash.
Some Bass Playing Guy: Bob Dole has always been an enigma to me. On one hard, when he was in office, he personified lots of what I didn't like about politics. But after he left office he seemed like a pretty cool guy. He was able to poke fun at himself and showed he has a wicked sense of humor.
Delay: Where are the Republican shills?

OgreMagi: The republicans want to shrink government small enough to fit into your vagina.
Captain Dan: I like Bob Dole. Amongst politicians, he was unusually decent.He's biting his tongue here. He's been worried about the direction of the party for a while, but loyalty has bid him silent.The GOP needs to go through the restructuring that Democrats went through in the 1980s. It'll cost them power for a decade, but it will pay off with a stronger party in the 2020s.- drop the anti-intellectualism: stop denying climate change, evolution- drop the racial bullshiat- focus on middle-class economic anxieties, starting with health care and higher education- expand geographically beyond the South- focus on making government work more efficiently, not eliminating it- don't ever say the word "rape", even if it is the appropriate word- avoid even saying "grape"- don't even think about saying "nubianrdly"
simplicimus: How do you bridge the difference between "Give me everything I want, unconditionally" and Obama's agenda?
puffy999: Yet he still assigned the blame for partisan gridlock on Obama.
ib_thinkin: FTFA: "I think one mistake he's made was not getting together more with Congress early on in his first administration. There's nothing like knowing the person you are talking to on the telephone, if you had an opportunity to sit down with that person and visit - not about anything, but just visit."I don't understand; was he asleep for all of 2009, or just high?
AirForceVet: gaslight: The GOP of today has finally become the sort of organization of which Joe McCarthy would be proud.Naw, that's too good for them. I suggest George Wallace, Lester Maddox, Strom Thurmond and Ross Barnett would be proud of the GOP as it is today.
patthedog: 20 Of The Most Embarrassing Moments In The History Of The Democrat Party
HighOnCraic: I love how most of the events involve evil racists in the South, because they're still the base of the Democratic Party, and thus, your list is like, SO relevant in 2013.
patthedog: Democrat Party
NOW WHY WEREN'T YOU OUTRAGED WHEN THAT IDIOT BUSH WAS BEATING THE WAR DRUMS?
patthedog: 20 Of The Most Embarrassing Moments In The History Of The Democrat Party1) The Trail of Tears (1838): The first Democrat President, Andrew Jackson and his successor Martin Van Buren, herded Indians into camps, tormented them, burned and pillaged their homes and forced them to relocate with minimal supplies. Thousands died along the way.2) Democrats Cause The Civil War (1860): The pro-slavery faction of the Democrat Party responded to Abraham Lincoln's election by seceding, which led to the Civil War.3) Formation of the KKK (1865): Along with 5 other Confederate veterans, Democrat Nathan Bedford Forrest created the KKK.4) 300 Black Americans Murdered (1868): "Democrats in Opelousas, Louisiana killed nearly 300 blacks who tried to foil an assault on a Republican newspaper editor."5) The American Protective League and The Palmer Raids (1919-1921): Under the leadership of Woodrow Wilson, criticizing the government became a crime and a fascist organization, the American Protective League was formed to spy on and even arrest fellow Americans for being insufficiently loyal to the government. More than 100,000 Americans were arrested, with less than 1% of them ever being found guilty of any kind of crime.6) Democrats Successfully Stop Republicans From Making Lynching A Federal Crime (1922): "The U.S. House adopted Rep. Leonidas Dyer's (R., Mo.) bill making lynching a federal crime. Filibustering Senate Democrats killed the measure."7) The Tuskegee Syphilis Experiment (1932-1972): Contrary to what you may have heard, Democrats in Alabama did not give black Americans syphilis. However, the experimenters did know that subjects of the experiment unknowingly had syphilis and even after it was proven that penicillin could be used to effectively treat the disease in 1947, the experiments continued. As a result, a number of the subjects needlessly infected their loved ones and died, when they could have been cured.8) Japanese Internment Camps (1942): Democrat Frankl ...
randomjsa: I always get a kick out of headlines like this.The Democrat party is owned lock, stock and barrel by the far left and we get to listen to liberals go on about how 'crazy' the Republican party is these days.What, are you worried the Republicans might shift as far to the right as the Democrats have to the left?
Mrbogey: Conservatives didn't make it a swear word. "Liberals" made it a swear word by loosely using it to define anything left-wing. When you allow "crap" to be called "liberal", "crap" doesn't start looking liberal. Instead "liberal" starts looking like crap.
tinfoil-hat maggie: OgreMagi: tinfoil-hat maggie: OgreMagi: TheJoe03: OgreMagi: There aren't any Randians/Libertarians in the GOP. They are all supporters of Cronyism, which any real libertarian hates.* Democrats are also supporters of CronyismWell the GOP is a lot more brazen in their support for corporate interests over human interests. They don't even pretend like they care about the common man over the wealthy man any more.Well, that just makes them more honest than the democrats who only pretend to give a shiat.Oh come on you now there are people out there that would undo Roe v. wade, well some of them signed DOMA into law, yea sure Obama was late stepping up to the plate but he did well somewhat, but really ?And sure dems get money and give favors to who they can but if you can think of a better political system I'd like to hear about it .Democracy is the worst political system of all, except for all the others. Yes, I know we are a republic, not a democracy, work with me here.The constant attacks on reproductive rights is one of the reasons I could never join the GOP.True, but if you side with the people that wanna do away with all regulations except for the one that involve the bedroom ,well. Also if you side with the people that want lower or no taxes well./ In this day and age you're no a republican if you object to what I said,
OgreMagi: The Beatings Will Continue Until Morale Improves: Well, duh.When the John Brich Society attempted to take over the GOP in the 80s, the Republicans soundly rejected them as lunatics. Now rebranded as the teabaggers, the GOP leadership has embraced them.When the Tea Party first emerged with the message of "reduced spending and reduced taxes", I was interested, but knew better than to jump right in and join up. Sure enough, within a year the derp kicked in as the fundies took over.How about combining that message with the Occupy message of "big business has too much say in our political process"? They aren't mutually exclusive. In fact, they are complimentary.
cptjeff: hubiestubert: tinfoil-hat maggie: hubiestubert: cptjeff: Does hubiestubert even identify as a Republican anymore?No. I voted in the last Primary, and then changed to Independent. I hung in there longer than I probably should have, but I wanted to believe that we could change the course of the party. I failed, and so did the rest of the party in this.Well just know you are awesome in my book and hell yea I'd vote for you./I never did like the way it always felt back in the day, and still does you like the 2nd amendment vote republican you like having government funded safety nets for the poor ... etc...Well, back in the day it always seemed they drew issues out of a hat but these days well some people are playing with a limited deck.Thanks to Fark and TorD back in the day, I fear that my life expectancy as a candidate would be only a few Google searches away from scandal. Though, at least I wasn't married and carrying on with an intern, so maybe I could call it "youthful shenanigans." ;)Just keep your fark handle in your pants, and any issues that might arise will stay small. If it grows into a scandal, all of fark will be behind you, ready to spear your opponent.\I'm a bit tipsy.
Captain Dan: - don't even think about saying "nubianrdly"

Mrbogey: LoneWolf343: namatad: Center is defined as "the majority of americans"No, no it doesn't. It's defined as no strong leanings towards left or right.A lot of people also define leftwing as good progressive politics while rightwing is racism, exploitation, and xenophobia.Victory through definition.
gaslight: The GOP of today has finally become the sort of organization of which Joe McCarthy would be proud.
Di Atribe: Perhaps if Bob Dole is recommending you check yourself, you should look into that before you find that yourself has been wreckederect.
soia: you know what really grinds my gears???? Is that i have to vote Democrat because Republicans are out of their minds. And i honestly believe that if Republicans actually got their heads out of their asses for a minute and decided to actually come to reality they would be the dominant political party in this nation, but no we're stuck with Democrats
hubiestubert: that means more than just Christians, but Jews, Muslims and Buddhists and more.
Satanic_Hamster: born_yesterday: ADD HIM TO THE LIST!!!!Don't worry, he tossed this in:He also assigned blame for Washington's current state of gridlock to President Barack Obama, who he argued was failing to bridge divides between the capital's ideological camps.Go fark yourself, Bob.
markie_farkie: born_yesterday: ADD HIM TO THE LIST!!!!The GOP won't stop devolving until the only people left are all the pants-shiatting crazies that do nothing but compile lists.
NFA: gaslight: The GOP of today has finally become the sort of organization of which Joe McCarthy would be proud.Here is a quote from Ann Coulter."The myth of "McCarthyism" is the greatest Orwellian fraud of our times. Liberals are fanatical liars, then as now. The portrayal of Sen. Joe McCarthy as a wild-eyed demagogue destroying innocent lives is sheer liberal hobgoblinism. Liberals weren't hiding under the bed during the McCarthy era. They were systematically undermining the nation's ability to defend itself, while waging a bellicose campaign of lies to blacken McCarthy's name. Liberals denounced McCarthy because they were afraid of getting caught, so they fought back like animals to hide their own collaboration with a regime as evil as the Nazis. "She is bat-shiat crazy.
