Republicans

Note: I don’t believe ALL Republicans have their head up the ass; but certainly the GOP Members of Congress and their teabagger supporters do.

END the Shutdown, and stop holding the country hostage!

Oh, sooooo true!

The ONLY thing more pathetic than these two MORONS, are the MORONS who voted for them!

Paul Krugman – ‘The Boehner Bunglers’

1

Via: NY Times

Conservative leaders are indeed ideologically extreme, but they’re also DEEPLY INCOMPETENT. So much so, in fact, that the Dunning-Kruger effect — the truly incompetent can’t even recognize their own incompetence — reigns supreme.

To see what I’m talking about, consider the report in Sunday’s Times about the origins of the current crisis. Early this year, it turns out, some of the usual suspects — the Koch brothers, the political arm of the Heritage Foundation and others — plotted strategy in the wake of Republican electoral defeat. Did they talk about rethinking ideas that voters had soundly rejected? (Oh, hell no!)

No, they talked extortion, insisting that the threat of a shutdown would induce President Obama to abandon health reform.

This was crazy talk.

After all, health reform is Mr. Obama’s signature domestic achievement.

You’d have to be completely clueless to believe that he could be bullied into giving up his entire legacy by a defeated, unpopular G.O.P. — as opposed to responding, as he has, by making resistance to blackmail an issue of principle. But the possibility that their strategy might backfire doesn’t seem to have occurred to the would-be extortionists.

~

Unfortunately for all of us, even the shock of electoral defeat wasn’t enough to burst the G.O.P. bubble; it’s still a party dominated by wishful thinking, and all but impervious to inconvenient facts.

And now that party’s leaders (See Photo) have bungled themselves into a corner.

Everybody not inside the bubble realizes that Mr. Obama can’t and won’t negotiate under the threat that the House will blow up the economy if he doesn’t — any concession at all would legitimize extortion as a routine part of politics. Yet Republican leaders are just beginning to get a clue, and so far clearly have no idea how to back down. Meanwhile, the government is shut, and a debt crisis looms. Incompetence can be a terrible thing.

Speaker ‘Boehner, Boner, whatever’

IF you want the government shutdown to end, so that 800,000 can go back to work, please call your GOP Representative and tell them to ‘MAKE it HAPPEN’.

IF they don’t, they will not get your vote.

Simple, really.

‘The Triumph of the Ratfuckers’ (See Photo) – by Charles P. Pierce

1

As the Reign Of The Morons enters its third day, let us pause for a moment to pay tribute to a political visionary whose entire  career presaged the current moment, anticipating the essential dynamic in play  in Washington right now in all of its petulant, kindergartenish glory.

Let us  raise a morning glass to Donald Segretti, the ratfucker.

(As any student of Watergate knows, “ratfucking” was the word used by  Segretti and a number of other officials in the Nixon White House for the dirty  tricks they ran in student elections when they all were at the University of  Southern California. Segretti — as well as his pal, Dwight Chapin — simply  transferred these techniques to our national elections.)

~

The first  is that political sabotage for its own sake is a worthy enough goal. There  doesn’t necessarily have to be an obvious purpose or obvious logic behind it.

Everything is simply tactics. Those tactics either work or they don’t.

To  believe this, of course, one must first believe that all politics is a  essentially a zero-sum game of power; you win and the other guy loses. Who  rules? Period.

One cannot for a moment contemplate the notion that politics —  and therefore, government — has anything to do with the public good.

I trust I  don’t have to spell out the parallels between this elemental basis of ratfucking  and what the Republicans are about in their current campaign of vandalism. This  has now entered a time in which we are seeing sabotage for sabotage’s own sake.

Remember, the conservative rump faction has brought this shutdown upon the  country because its members refuse to agree to a federal budget that contains  lower discretionary spending than even Paul Ryan contemplated.

That’s because  now — as Congressman Marlin Stutzman pointed out clearly yesterday — this  isn’t about the budget, or even about economics, it’s about who wins and who  loses. It’s about whether or not John Boehner, the castrato Speaker Of The  House, can keep his job.

The public, as was said during our previous Gilded Age,  be damned.
