  •  Great rant from Sully (11+ / 0-)

    Between the humiliating and chaotic collapse of Speaker Boehner's already ludicrously extreme Plan B and Wayne La Pierre's deranged proposal to put government agents in schools with guns, the Republican slide into total epistemic closure and political marginalization has now become a free-fall. This party, not to mince words, is unfit for government. There is no conservative party in the West - except for minor anti-immigrant neo-fascist ones in Europe - anywhere close to this level of far right extremism. And now the damage these fanatics can do is not just to their own country - was the debt ceiling debacle of 2011 not enough for them? - but to to the entire world.

    Those of us who have warned for years about this disturbing trend toward ever more extreme measures - backing torture, pre-emptive un-budgeted wars, out-of-control spending followed, like a frantic mood swing, by anti-spending absolutism of the most insane variety in a steep recession, vicious hostility to illegal immigrants, contempt for gay couples, hostility even to contraception, let alone a middle ground on abortion ... well, you know it all by now.

    There are, in every age, new errors to be rectified, and new prejudices to be opposed. ~Samuel Johnson (1709-1784)

    •  ...rants are great...don't do a thing... (6+ / 0-) I told smileycreek once Obama won a second term, "the GOP will be even worse than during his first term...absolutely nothing will get done.  The House won't pass anything Obama would ever sign into law and the Senate will filibuster everything including most all appointees."

      I'm telling you, the GOP will absolutely destroy the problem for them.  Then (why does Hitler come to mind?)...

      Ignorance is bliss only for the ignorant. The rest of us must suffer the consequences.
