As we have noted before, now that the base of the Republican Party has burrowed its way out of the basement and into the sunlight where the whole world can see it for the bigoted, toxic hellbeast that it has always been, the Conservatives who have profited handsomely by cultivating this monster in the dark for decades and are scuttling madly away from the crime scene all exhibit the same pattern of outraged and hysterical denial:
First, they make a giant, reeking mess.Then they abandon it.Then the immediately begin bitching about how the help isn't cleaning it up fast enough.
However when I wrote this about George Will back in June when he flamouantly quit the Republican Party. I neglected to mention the fourth component of the Conservative alibi -- that its all the Dirty Hippie's fault anyway! From Mr. Will, buried way down deep in his dyspeptic Washington Post claptrap yesterday:
A demagogue’s success requires a receptive demos, and Trump’s ascendancy reflects progressivism’s success in changing America’s social norms and national character by de-stigmatizing dependency.
Pop the hood on a Conservative and beneath the sneers and pomposity you'll find a childish, tantrum-throwing twit who would rather saw his own arm off than take responsibility for disasters they helped top create.
