Stay classy, GOP

I guess they could have complained bitterly at the Senator not congratulating her own state's team...

Which in fairness, would have been far more hilarious. Seriously kids. If you're so deep into butthurt that you can't be joined together for cheering the same damn sports, then you are officially dead inside. Well, except maybe for horse ballet--if you're cheering for dressage and looking to be "the man of the people" then folks can point and laugh. But hockey? Cripes. Let it go, kids. Let. It. Go. Next thing up: no Democrat can cheer on baseball or football and ONLY European soccer teams, and certainly not local colleges or high schools, because that's just "pandering" when they do it, but when a Republican Senator who hasn't seen the inside of his own home in nearly a year of hard work at the capitol, he sends congratulations for the local boys, that's true support, amirite?

Twitter is for posting photos of your meals, passive-aggressively mocking people and surreptitiously following porn stars so your work IT department can't tell what Twitpics you're perusing in the shiatter, Jeanne Shaheen, totes magotes

Just what you would expect from the party of evil.  Disdain, criticism, elitism in sports fanship, pandering to the LCD, sewing doubt about someone by questioning that they are a strong enough ____ with ____.  Then come the comparisons.

You should check out NHGOP's Twitter account. It reads like something a Fark Independent would write.

No, but they did use the Daily Caller as if it was a legitimate source (because apparently the racist NBA owner is a Democrat).

It has to be a parody....right? I've seen other state political party accounts before...they're almost entirely fluff PR ("so and so is speaking at X restaurant tonight") but that feed is nothing but straight vitriol.

Yeah, I found it rather amusing. It's nothing but a constant barrage of random attacks, based on, at best, spotty evidence. Never anything positive to say about any Republicans, or Republican ideas. Reminded me of a pissed off chihuahua.

Which is totally relevant, because all the Democratic party bigwigs are inviting this guy to speak at campaign rallies and stuff.

Actually they seem to have switched sides. Now the GOP seems to root for Vladimir Pooty-poot.

I guess it helps them get out the Max Kaiser and Zerohedge vote.

This. When you can't even stand to set partisan politics aside long enough for a goddamned hockey game, you are a sad, sad individual. Whoever runs that account probably waves a literal farking pennant while watching Fox News. With cheers and boos and everything.

nyseattitude: I wish republicans didn't exist


I say that every day. Think of how much we could have accomplished for our country and the world, even if just in this century, if they didn't...or if all repubs were like Teddy Roosevelt.

No wars, especially not the war we've been in the longest in our history
Single-payer health care
Same-sex marriage legal in all states
Abortion easily available in all states, treated as the private medical decision that it is
A thriving middle class and ever-shrinking poverty numbers
No banking economic crash
A balance between military and domestic program spending
Incentives to retain jobs in this country instead of off-shoring
A compassionate immigration program
A well-supported education system applied equally across the country and stringent home-schooling requirements
Student loan reform
Campaign financing reform
Sane and balanced gun control

...a frigging utopia. Sigh.

You...are an idiot. 
No wars? Last time I checked it was a democrat who got us into ww1, ww2, Korea, Vietnam, and expanded the war in Afghanistan.
I am not going to even bother getting into the errors of most of your other points.

OK, well, we wouldn't have had:

Grenada (which was St. Ronnie's thing), Desert Storm (which may or may not have been necessary), Iraq, Afghanistan (if we hadn't been there in the first place, the Democrat wouldn't have needed to "expand" it).

Abortion, same-sex marriage, immigration, campaign-finance reform and gun control would have continued to be issues; but without the demented intractability and the "let's make Obama a one-term president!" rhetoric, they'd have been smaller, local, and more easily resolved.

The banking crisis would have happened (since Clinton repealed Glass-Steagall at the behest of Wall Street, not the Republicans), but it would have been more easily rectified for the same reason as above.

The debt-ceiling crisis would not have occurred.

Education, home-schooling and the student-loan crunch would not have been reduced to LIBERALS BAD! GOD GOOD!

Union-busting would not have become a thing again.

We would not be having the "single-moms cause poverty" discussion that had previously been quashed when I was a wee lass in the 70's.

Shall I go on?

Of course you're not, because all you have is that we entered those wars under a Democratic president.  Every other point on that list is valid.

You know, perhaps if you were less Republican, you would have realized that those were in the 20th century, and it's an entirely new century now. Has been for 14 years. In point of fact, the first bit of your whine was literally a century ago.

The fact that you actually think there is a victim at all leaves me shaking my head. It was a f*cking childish twitter rant, for f*ck sake, not a knife fight.

No, really. Explain to me where your outrage is being manufactured, because no normal person can get this worked up over a twitter rant. It's MSNBC, isn't it? I bet Maddow has explained to you how this is just the first salvo in an attack against your freedoms and liberties... It's got to be something along those lines - I refuse to believe that people are spontaniously as bat-shiat crazy as the posting in this thread without being egged on.

Yeah, he wrote a check to Bill Clinton's election campaign twenty-two years ago.
