They say the definition of insanity is doing ‘the same thing over and over again, and expecting a different result’. This week the sages in the GOP have successfully proven that they are in no way exceptions to the rule.
First up we have our very own installment of The Expendables, as Rick Perry and the always brainy Sean Hannity, took time out of their busy schedules to make their way down to the border and play soldier. But no such journey would be complete without a photo op and as usual the GOP delivered a very ‘meme’-able entry, with Beavis and Butthead looking very tough as they bravely stood, machine gun in tow, with such stone faced enthusiasm that would make a gun owner weep tears of patriotism. It takes a real man to take up arms as a first resort, but it takes an even bigger man to take up arms to face down hordes of immigrant children. For those of you who are convinced that the latest crisis on the border is some sort of ‘Zimmerman telegram’-esque conspiracy by the current administration, I can only direct you to the exit as this post is in no way supportive of that ‘theory’. But doesn’t Rick Perry just look as cute as a button with his new ‘smart boy’ glasses?
In other news, Sarah Palin, the GOP’s ‘princess batshit’ and tea party favorite, continued to whine about impeachment to anyone who will listen. Perhaps one of my favorite excerpts from her conspiracy theory laced tirade about the sanctity of this country discussed the shifting climate under this ‘heathen’ presidency in which she said,
Enough is enough of the years of abuse from this president. His unsecured border crisis is the last straw that makes the battered wife say, “no mas.”
Unfortunately, you can only cry ‘wolf’ so many times before those of us who are normally adjusted individuals just stop listening. Luckily for Sarah ‘Plain and Crazy’, there are still plenty of ‘ammosexuals’ and red blooded tea partiers who are more than willing to lap up every second she speaks. This is the one time I’m going to say this but Sarah, just take all these brilliant ideas that you have bottled up inside and write another book already. Anything to stop these nut ball talking points from making their way into the media outlets.
