The Myth Of The Good Republican

14 years ago, the the political depravity of the GOP was so widely known that Aaron Sorkin had to invent a fictional Ethical Republican to stand against his party's plan to use Congressional hearings as means to destroy the President's chief of staff.

14 years later that same party is now a thousand times more savage, dangerous and openly insane than it was back during the good old civilized days of Whitewater, Vince Foster and the impeachment of a sitting President for lying about getting a blowjob.

The days of worrying about "killing the party" are long over.  The Party of Lincoln is dead.  It is time to get on with the business of figuring out the swiftest and most efficient way of caging and neutering the rabid monster that killed it.

The absolute worst was watching the pasty, incoherent vermin Jason Chafetz in his Committee attack PP for providing reproductive services in the Democratic Republic of the Congo including abortions for women that had been raped by rampaging gangs. And then somehow linking this to her CEO's salary. Needless to say, none of this involved USG funds. But as utterly revolting as it was, it was immediately followed by the total takedown and destruction of Chafetz by Elijah Cummings, the Ranking Member who rattled off a slew of huge financial, pharma and other business crimes by companies whose CEOs earn many millions and that benefit from taxpayer subsidies and other benefits. None of them have ever been brought before this same committee. Instead the CEO of an NGO that committed no crime was made to stand trial in the GOP circus for purely partisan purposes. Cummings takedown was excellent and the frozen smile on Chafetz's face was priceless. Reminded me of the McCarthy Hearings of 1954.

the rabid monster that killed it and has been wearing its hollowed-out skin as an Edgar the Bug/Buffalo Bill suit ever since.

Fixed that for you, chief.

Somewhere in Raspberry Heaven, where all is forgiven, the ghosts of Abe Lincoln and Jeff Davis must be scratching their heads over the exchange of identities between their old parties.

Good morning, Mr. Glass.

According to your wife on C&L, you Sorkin-rolled her yesterday. It's like Rick-rolling, except "Never Gonna Give You Up" is replaced with a clip of a fictional Republican being reasonable.

Be seeing you.
