Halfwits on Parade
I'm not sure liberal pundits are on the right track by calling McCain on racism and misogynism in his pre-emptive stance against UN Ambassador Susan Rice and that it's largely based on Dr. Rice not ascribing Benghazi to terrorism when she was on Meet the Press on September 16th and for going out with the talking points given to her by the administration. That's what an administration official does: March out with the president's talking points, right or wrong, and doing their utmost to advance the administration's every agenda pertinent to that official's job title. This doesn't nor should necessarily re-invoke the GOP's obvious war on women but at the very least it tells us this:
McCain never got beyond his humiliating defeat by Barack Obama in the 2008 election and he largely has himself to blame for this. He has no one but himself to blame because, without vetting her, McCain scrambled his own campaign to vet Sarah Palin before the press could get to Alaska. He'd nominated a racist, secessionist, witch-hunting half term halfwit whose biggest claim to fame was starring in a failed reality show and getting millions for two books she didn't even write.
Aside from Romney's delayed diatribe about Obama winning the election with phones, condoms and other gifts, Obama's latest Republican victim has for the most part faded back into the tall grass. McCain never moved on after 2008 just as Allen West took forever to finally concede his own defeat to Patrick Murphy in FL-18.
Despite being the most ferociously hateful, racist, Dominionist, misogynistic, stupidest and most willfully uninformed faction in human history since the Spanish Inquisition, the perennially unpopular Republican Party that would've stood zero chance of retaining the House were it not for some illegal gerrymandering (45 new Democrats got elected to the House) still cannot understand the concept of losing a fair and open election.
This unjustified Republican sense of entitlement harbors at its very core a spiteful contempt toward the Democratic process of our Republic, a process and set of Constitutional freedoms countless millions of men died to vouchsafe. But also at the core of this sense of entitlement is a bewilderment as to why their principles are increasingly unpopular in a nation that's every-so-slowly wrenching Overton's Window back to the left. And they almost literally spit in the eye of anyone who disagrees with them and the facts and their own hypocrisy be Goddamned.
Mitt Romney was "shellshocked" over the election. Paul Ryan was "stunned." Alan West simply decided to ignore the facts and pretend as if he won and still hasn't made a public concession.
Both parties need a major paradigm shift in their strategies if they're going to get even 25% more of the electorate to even trust them. But that especially holds true for a Republican Party that always finds it easier to spit in the eyes of the young, the sick and destitute, women and those who'd already long ago given up on the GOP as having any other substantial strategy and agenda other than "Repeal!", "Impeach!" and "No!"
And this hoarse screaming by McCain against a perfectly qualified non-nominee to head up Foggy Bottom in Dr. Susan Rice, a woman who could easily be looked at as the anti-Palin, shows just how completely bereft the GOP is beyond their tired, moth-eaten mantra of lowering taxes for those least deserving of them.
