I was going to write about idiot Republicans today.
I had every intention, really, considering Jon Huntsman’s upcoming announcement to run for president though all the signs point to a lackluster candidacy on his part…
According to Time Magazine:
“In the seven weeks since the former Utah Governor and Ambassador to China returned from Beijing… Team Huntsman has seemed interested in nothing so much as… portraying him as modest and relatable. They want you to know that this is a guy who loves motocross, who dropped out of high school to play keyboards in a prog-rock band called Wizard, who drags friends and reporters to his favorite taco carts for lunch…”
Yeah, ‘cause “modest and relatable” has worked out so well for Republicans in the past.
The GOP’s insistence at running political pacifists desperate to be loved and accepted is a large part of what’s wrong with America. Maybe if Republicans worked a bit harder towards maintaining a limited government instead of reaching across the aisle and singing kumbayah, we wouldn’t be in this mess we’re in today.
But like I said before: I was going to write about idiot Republicans. Then I stumbled upon a story about how former Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney went to Libya to lament the U.S.’s lack of free healthcare and free education.
Clearly, she wins this round.
Unless she’s referring to college degrees and beyond, I can’t logically follow her complaints about U.S. education. Heck, we teach illegals on the taxpayer dime and give out free meals to underprivileged children around the country.
But even beyond McKinney’s uneducated claims, she’s inhumanly tone deaf grumbling about the American Dream – which has provided her with wealth and opportunity – to a people ravaged by poverty, oppressive dictatorial regimes and war.
Then there’s the gay rights crowd and their new unfathomable fondness for throwing glitter on Republicans. Because getting glittered is going to change anybody’s mind?
Maybe in Never-Never land, but this is reality. And in the real world, those glitter bugs are more likely to get attacked by security than score any real points for their cause.
People like that make me very happy to be Republican. Sure, my side of the aisle can be entirely embarrassing. But between Cynthia McKinney and the glitter scene, even Jon Hunstman looks like a rocket scientist.
