GOP's first 100 days
I love Kos' new mascot, the 'Goposaur.'
Amid all the blubbering about Obama's first 100 days, it looks like MSNBC (go figure--buncha commie/homo/socialist/tax-n-spend hippies) was the only network to take a look at what the Republican Party's first hundred days under Obama looked like.
--they lost a senator (granted, via a nakedly self-interested defection) to the dems
(sidebar: here's my favorite apocalyptic quote about Specter's defection, from the always level-headed--no, really, I think he was dropped on a flat surface when he was a baby--Senator Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, he of the missing chin and puzzled turtle-like demeanor:
'"The threat to the country presented ... by this defection really relates to the issue of whether or not in the United States or America our people want the majority party to have whatever it wants without restraint, without a check or balance," Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky said Tuesday...'
Gosh. That does sound bad. Why does that state of affairs sound familiar??
--the number of Americans who self-identify as republicans has dropped to 21 percent
--they watched Governor Palin (doesn't that sound so much more reassuring than 'Vice-President Palin?) once again show her savvy and class in dealing with the media and life in general
--made their party platform knee-jerk opposition to anything the dems try to do
--Rush, Cheney, Gingrich, Rove. 'Nuff said.
So this is what a permanent majority looks like.
I like, I like.
