The author simply forgot about Bush Jr.'s ban on stem cell testing?  Palin was just another derp in a long line of modern-day herp-a-derp that stretches back to Reagan's use of astrologers in the White House, while refusing to say the word "AIDS" despite it raging across the land.

The key figure in the transformation of the Republican Party into the know-nothing, anti-science, conspiracy-theory-loving, cultishly authoritarian Party of unquestioning Believers it is today was Jerry Falwell. Palin is just another willfully ignorant opportunist.

Richard Nixon was a crook who committed crimes against America.
He got caught, and his presidency crashed and burned because of it.
The Republicans never got over that, and have been at war with America ever since.

Local GOP heavyweights like Cletus Redmeat, and whatever member of the Fark red brigade is about to sacrifice 'the wisdom in their silence removing the doubt of their stupidity' upon the alter of trolling threads, are just voting in who best reflects themselves. It isn't a concerted thing. There isn't some grand plan. They're just some fools who are convinced they're some sort of victim and wanna cry about it.

The only reason people see Palin as more influential or as some kind of leader of the dumb-dumb movement is because she has some sexy legs and a nice set of cans despite the years of alcoholism and vaginal wear with her having so many kids.

The GOP has been FULL of looney tunes crackpots since the civil rights era when the modern battle lines were drawn.  They just didn't have the trauma of a black president bringing it to the surface.

We've been through this discussion before. It was probably when Nixon asked Anna Chennault to commit treason on his behalf, and she complied.

FYI: "In the 1964 civil rights act, Republicans in the house voted 138 for and 34 against; Democrats voted 152 for and 96 against. In the Senate, the Republicans voted 27 for and 6 against; the Democrats voted 46 for and 21 against."

Not quite.  Or, at least, that's not quite my take... to me, Reagan was an already-going-senile actor who looked the part and was a known name in the right circles, able to play the "charming g'pa" role, as a puppet slapped on as a facade on the Nixon Junta, who did know exactly what you laid out... and who then proceeded to ramp up the robbing of the country, elimination of that uppity middle class, elevation of selfish greed as aspirational to protect their own asses, and destruction of liberal/progressive ideas that dated back to before FDR -- and lock themselves into wildly disproportionate control of the government via manipulation of a dimwitted, patriotic plurality via brutally deploying ownership and use of mass media, having learned the hard way not to let it be objective, neutral, or not owned by their own aligned interests, after what JFK did to them.

Reagan didn't do _shiat_.  Reagan's handlers, who have been working as a machine ("Deep State!" is just more p(R)ojection -- as was the quick dismissal of Ms. Clinton's original "vast right-wing conspiracy" point... because she was _right_), farked us with a pineapple.  Reagan was just the charm-lube.

Palin is more of a re-embodiment of Quayle -- dumb and demographic-buzzword-compliance.  But she was too dumb, and didn't know even enough to keep her mouth shut and do what she was told, which was a bigger problem than earlier VP-idiots faced because the "catch you spelling potato with an extra 'e' " cameras were even _more_ omnipresent and influential.

Frankly, my one small hope for Orange Dipshiat back 75 lifetimes ago in 2016 was that his admin might be the death of Nixon's Vindictive Asshole Brigade, and maybe a tempering of the power of the oil industry.  I knew he'd be a racist idiot failure... but even in my cynicism, I had too much faith in the military brass and interest of the wealthy in maintaining the general stability of the economy to expect the catastrafark and death that he has brought about.

Good times.  Goooood times.  Happy Farkin' 100,000 Dead So Far Memorial Day, farkin' MAGAts.

Yep, though the transformation of the Republican party to cultists started with massive corruption in the early 1900's that led to Teddy Roosevelt running on the the Progressive ticket in 1912 with the motto of "To destroy this invisible Government, to dissolve the unholy alliance between corrupt business and corrupt politics is the first task of the statesmanship of the day".  This created a split and the corrupt started seeking the vote of conservatives while progressives started taking over the Democratic party in places.  The ideological switch was massively accelerated by Hoover refusing to help people in the great depression versus FDR's aggressive plans to help people that weren't wealthy.  The path to the current state of frothing at the mouth death cult led by transparent scammers was probably set in stone in 1964 when LBJ got the 64 civil rights act through congress and Goldwater won the Republican primary on the plank of "fark the attractive and successful African-Americans".

It was union versus confederacy. Not R vs D.

And all of those dixiecrats left to infest the republican party after. Even looking further into the percentages and totals while taking out the confederate traitor states, the civil rights act was passed by more D's than R's.
