How utterly predictable this party of proudly cow-dumb, paranoid brownshirts have always been to anyone who was paying any attention whatsoever.
And if you weren't out there on the front lines trying with however large a microphone you owned to call them out on it? If you reacted to every single Republican atrocity by running in circles shrieking Both Sides, Both Sides, Both Sides? If you let millions of these meatheads off the hook for their eager participation in eight years of Bush Clusterfuckery by going for the transparently obvious Tea Party okey-doke because it was easier than doing your fucking job?
Then your professional head belongs on a pike right next to Sean Hannity and Rush Limbaugh.
But that's not going to happen is it?
Because pointing out that around 40% of the American voting public is permanently unfit to perform the most basic act of American citizenship is very bad for rating.
And in the end, ratings are the only thing that the lords and ladies of teevee care about.
