Crazy Old Bigot Fires Up The Bush-Off Machine*

From the WaPo:
Cliven Bundy has officially left the Republican Party herd

BY PHILIP BUMP May 27 at 2:16 pm 
Rancher Cliven Bundy, who you may remember from American politics circa April 2014, has officially left the Republican Party...
Because amazingly, scrapin' them "Bush/Cheney '04", "McCain/Palin '08" and "Romney/Galt '12" bumper-stickers off'n your truck and declarin' that you're really an Independent -- wheee!haaaaw! -- still continues to completely bamboozle a lot of the expensively accoutered children and PR flacks who call themselves "journalists".

*(If you are not familiar with the Bush-Off Machine, I commend this post from 2010 to your attention.)

But wait, I thought all the crazy racist bastards were in the Democrat Party.

Thanks for the laffs, Kevin.

How some people can keep their heads wedged firmly in the sixties, and avoid noticing that the two parties have swapped geographical bases since the second world war, is a great unexplained mystery. Never the less, one reliably hears "MLK WAS A REPUBLICAN AND THE DEMOCRATS ARE THE TRUE RACISTS JUST LOOK AT SELMA!!!!"

Good for a chuckle, except for the niggling fact that these people vote.
