Do average Republicans ever get tired of apologizing for the morons and assholes that run their party?

Good point. Making excuses for?

I apologize. :(
I have been since Bush. :(


And I apologize *extra hard* for that.
 
2011-11-05 11:45:54 AM  
We actually should thank Soviet veterans. I wrote a paper on this that was hilariously ill received.

Not even. I'm thinking "First deny, then blame someone else".

They do, it's just that the apologies normally sound like "I'm sorry that you're so stupid and blinded by your hatred of freedom that you went crying to the Lamestream LSM Media about my perfectly reasonable statement that Barack Obama powers his Mooslin prayer rug by burning pieces of the Constitution and the One True Cross."

Defend to the point of absurdity. Clearly, this guy's a Real American because the commies fought the Taliban in Afghanistan or something.

No, wait, there's too much logic in that line of thinking.

We all might want to thank this Soviet veteran for his cool hand and cast-iron balls Stanislav Petrov (new window)

It's true: we needed their help to kill Hitler and topple the fascists, saved a lot of American and British lives. Thank you soldiers of the former Soviet Union.
 
2011-11-05 11:53:05 AM  
Ummm... thanks, comrade?

You've got the right Idea though, Now you have to make up a little history. "The Russians led a strike into North Korea to remove the Taliban threat". Then you say they did it "for the freedom of all God-fearing Americans".

And anyone who disagrees is oppressing you and promoting their liberal agenda.

Do Democrats ever get tired of raising taxes on our most vulnerable citizens, i.e. "the wealthy"?
 
2011-11-05 11:57:05 AM  
Republican support of the troops is lip service at best and this shows it. The majority of them never served and really have no clue.

But they love the military! And by the military, I mean defense contractors.

Don't forget, it's also OK to cut the VA, because the Americans that didn't die aren't true soldiers, or some bullshiat they make up to justify what they do.

Didn't the Soviet army do 80% of the fighting and dying in WWII?

Also that commie colonel who didn't launch retaliatory nuke strike when their NORAD type syste
Said holy shiat massive. Umbers of incoming.
Then there was a nuclear sub mop-n-glo who kept the east coast free of a SNAFU sourced radiation.

Nap time.

I love Republican faux patriotism (as if there's any other kind these days).

"That guy totally looks like an awesome veteran we can exploit for our own purposes. Just look at all those shiny medals!! He's probably a Super Admiral or something, and since he's in the military he MUST be Republican. He'd have no problem being used in an ad for our candidate's political gain. USA! USA!"

Farking cocksuckers.

Hilarious how liberals always conservatives to cite sources. It's their only argument. Rofl.

According to the ads on that page, Alan Grayson is running for office again. Yay!
 
2011-11-05 12:03:22 PM  
What do you expect from a party where the vast majority have never served in the military but gladly send young men to war?
 
2011-11-05 12:03:30 PM  
It was nice of them to help out with Hitler. And not counting Rambo movies, how many Soviet troops have shot at American troops? So, yeah, thanks guys. For the Hitler thing, at least.

When I was a kid my best friend kept talking how his father had served in the war. One day he showed us a picture of his father and some other troops.After I pointed out the Iron Cross, he didn't talk about it any more.

They surely get tired of talking about it.

First of all, you're missing a verb there.
Second, I'm not a liberal.
Third, taxes on the wealthy have been going up? Since when?

Sometimes I WISH there was a way for sarcasm to actually demonstrate history to Republicans.

// They really are not that smart
/ Neither are the Democrats

Honest mistake.

Staff guy: We need a photo of a veteran for our mud slinging ad.
Low lvl staffer: I got one but not sure if it's right.
Staff guy: Is he old? Does he have medals?
Low lvl staffer: Yes, bu...
Staff guy: Then it's the right one, fool. I swear, good help is hard to find nowadays.

Ad comes out and it's a Soviet.

Staff guy: If anyone was offended we apologize, the low lvl staffer in charge of the ad has been terminated to prevent future incidents.

There's a whole lot of fail here. First of all there's the utter ignorance of the derptard who made that image, then there's Kos himself, who said the following: "Personally, I'm glad our Democratic incumbent in the district has better things to do than thank old-line communists veterans."

Yeah, because the Soviets didn't do anything in WW2, they just sat around Stalingrad sipping margaritas and laughing about how the capitalist pigs were killing each other. Those 20 million people who disappeared are just on vacation, they'll be back any day now. We totally could have won in both theaters all by ourselves, and we wouldn't have lost many, many millions of troops in doing it either. farking partisan hack, so busy attacking his enemies that he doesn't give a shiat about truth, justice, or reality.

No shiat. WWII would have been even harder, or next to impossible, to win without their sacrifice.

As much as democrats.....

Is that a soviet uniform though? I know my great grandfather had medals from Russia he earned in one of the wars, he had a letter of thanks and everything. But they were in a draw not worn on his uniform.

Unless they were atomized by what killed them. Then they're AWOL.

Yeah I was thinking that as well, they forget we have fought along side Russians as allies more than once.

Rambo wasn't right, we always didn't hate the Russians.

5 launches is hardly massive and many of those deaths could have been avoided if their leaders were any bit competent.

Also, fark the commies.
