The Grand Old (Stupid) Party

humanitys sake

The awful Obama is pushing terrible things on our country like socialised medicine, big spending, corporate bailouts, affirmative action, and amnesty for illegal aliens. He must be defeated so the Republicans can get in and push socialised medicine, big spending, corporate bailouts, affirmative action, and amnesty for illegal aliens.

Obama is conducting two endless and pointless wars in Asia. He must be stopped so that the Republicans can get in and start another endless and pointless war in Asia.

Obama is making terrible appointments to the Supreme Court. He must be defeated so the Republicans can get in and appoint great conservative jurists like Earl Warren, William J. Brennan, Warren Burger, Harry Blackmun, John Paul Stevens, David Souter, and Sandra Day O’Connor.

The Democratic leadership is protecting crooks and perverts in Congress. The Republicans must get a majority so they can protect their crooks and perverts.

The Republican Party has completely failed as an opposition party. It is their turn to get in power so they can be the majority and the Democrats can be a real opposition party.

Obama is too liberal. We must replace him with a conservative Republican like Mitch Romney, Michael Bloomberg, John McCain, Jeb Bush, or Newt Gingrich. (Forget Lindsey Graham and Mike Huckabee because whatever their ambitions, the Republican party never has and never will nominate a Southerner for President; or even for Vice-President.)

A Republican is someone who thinks…

*That unemployment compensation for laid-off workers is socialism and multi-billion dollar bailouts for banking and stock swindlers is capitalism.

*That killing women and children with high explosives in remote corners of the earth is defending “our way of life.”

*That the purpose of education is to train good workers.

*That immigration is good because it supplies good cheap workers.

*That Earl Warren, Nelson Rockefeller, Gerald Ford, George W. Bush, Newt Gingrich, Rudy Giuliani, Colin Powell, and Mitch Romney are great American statesmen.

*That the main reason not to train women for combat is that it is inefficient.

*That the 10th Amendment means that the federal government should tell the States what to do rather than do it itself.

*That criticism of Lincoln is near treason.

*That the President is “Commander-in-Chief” of the country, especially when he is a Republican.

*That freedom is protected by undeclared wars and military tribunals.

*That “right to life” is a good campaign gimmick, but not to be taken seriously.

*That any campaign promise or slogan should gull the saps who are not in the know but is not to be taken seriously.

*That the way to beat the Democrats is to take up whatever they propose and promise to do it better (see last week for example).
