I have been gorging myself on Right Wing Recriminations in the past week. I swear, If the sweet, sweet tears of conservatives was liquor, my liver would be toasted.

But there are some things, that I haven't heard talked about. And it signifies that the Repubs are not yet ready to embrace the future.

"Let's take up a collection and buy out Rush Limbaugh's contract. We can't mount any sort of outreach as long as that heaping mound of ass is still broadcasting."

"You know that rule we used to have about not having Hollywood Elites as endorsers?? We need to get back to that."

"The number of people who identify as very religious is going down. We've got to change our image from that of the Bible Thumpers"

"Holy Shit. We are FUCKED."

"Can we buy out Ann Coulter's publishing contract?? How about her speaking fees?"

"The Koch Brothers, Sheldon Adelson -- next time we have to tell those guys thanks but no thanks. They gave off exactly the kind of Big-Money-Politics vibe that we didn't need. If this campaign were one of those 70s live-action Disney movies, WE would have been the villains!"

"The vast majority of Americans simply aren't worried about Israel. . A greater number of the populace identifies with El Salvador and Mexico."

"I mean, seriously dudes...we are FUCKED ROYALLY."

"You know that little campaign we embarked upon to purge the party of all dissenters and moderates? It worked great, but....is there a way to reverse engineer that?"

"Even those who call themselves Israeli sympathizers aren't bold enough to start calling for another war in the Middle East anyway.
Hell, most Israelis aren'tworried about Iran! We need to get off that meme. I mean, we should be concerned about peoples all over the globe, like Democrats are, not just one small part of it."

"We Are SOOOOO FUCKED. Y'know it's really ironic. Bush ran one of the most anti-gay campaigns ever, but he has fucked EVERY REPUBLICAN ** for FOUR YEARS RUNNING!!"

"All the Republican Primary Debates in 2015-2016 need to be CLOSED to live audiences!!!"

"We've gotta start listening to Lindsey Graham and cease with the litmus tests."

"Sarah Palin MUST be the nominee in 2016!!"

"Can we buy out Dick Morris' contract? No? OK, let's just get some mobsters to dump him in the Hudson."

"Is it possible to emigrate to Vatican City? I mean, it appears that's the ONLY place we're ever going to find on the planet that mirrors our way of thinking."

"Damn, we're Fucked!"

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

    Purging predominantly minority voters and requiring them to present IDs to vote in the face of VIRTUALLY NON-EXISTENT VOTER FRAUD is RACISM! I hereby declare all consenting Republicans RACISTS until they stand up and object to these practices!

    •  Bush rode to re-election in 2004 (0+ / 0-)

      LARGELY on a wave of anti-gay sentiment that stemmed from, among other actions, Mayor Gavin Newsom legalizing gay marriage in San Fran.  I remember the freakout panicked feeling that liberals were getting that year, because we were feeling like we'd grasped an electoral anvil.  The shine had worn off of Bush that year, and his razor-thin margin of victory proves it, and I remember a lot of people thinking we lost to Bush not just because of swiftboating, not just because the country wouldn't switch horses mid-apocalypse, but because Newsom (and others) mobilized a massive homophobic freak-out.

      The rapid turning of that tide is a relief and the GOP roundly deserves to be mocked for it.  I remember saying back then, possibly on these pages even, that the future would look back on 2004 as a dark, uncivilized era and the people whose whole cause of existence was to hurt gays and demonize them would be looked on as villains and degenerates.

      It is so sweet to be vindicated on that one.  Not the least because in the meantime my child has come out to me and I've worried endlessly about his future.  This year, I don't have quite so much of a worry.  

      And yeah, the GOP got exactly what they deserved on that, and yeah, I am OK with calling it what it is.

      Plus, is it possible for Democrats and liberals to ever learn to loudly crow we won motherfuckers and not have someone concern-trolling our exultation?  Maybe?

        the butt-fucking part of the comment is justifiably offensive to many gays.

  •  It will take a high ranking GOP official with (0+ / 0-)

    a set of balls (or ovaries) to stand up and tell their constituents that the right wing media DOES NOT SPEAK FOR THEM AND DOES NOT SET THEIR POLICY AGENDA!!!

    until that happens, the grand ol party will have to contend with and adhere to their misshapen version of reality, and their constiuents will be dragged under along with them.

  •  I've seen them knocking around the idea of (0+ / 0-)

    giving some on immigration in an effort to try to patch things up with the Latinos who they lost 73-26 (or so).

    But I've yet to hear a single Republican express concern about losing the Black vote 95-3 (or whatever it was).

    Even in trying to muster parking their racism against Latinos so they can get back in power, they maintain a racist position against other minorities.

    It's got to be really insulting to those other minorities to hear the GOP now willing to make a desperate play for the Latinos while making no effort and expressing no concern for the lack of support from the other minorities.

    I hope the racists in that party are buried for at least a generation - or however long it takes for those disgraceful views to die off.
