Everything about this is wonderful. Half the time, you don't know which side he's even spouting about.
Yes. Yessssss. Yesssssssssssssss.
Is there a "screwed the pooch" tag?
The rats finally began to eat each other.
Oh god yes.
Everything. The entire thing is worth a watch. Holy fuck it is delicious.
It doesn't even remotely work at face value, is the thing I think I love the most. I don't think I've ever seen the narrative slapped together so sloppily.
You could make a game based on the factions vying for control of the shattered GOP.
It's "sedition" to incite rebellion against the gubmint. But there should be a term for calling people "enemies of the country" without some serious backup. That seems like inciting rebellion against other citizens, and I don't cotton to it one bit.
It's like a new "red scare" within the conservative movement. Frank Gaffney is also a well known nutter. The republican party may be tearing itself apart but what will arise from the corpse will probably be far worse.
Nah. McCarthyism had congressional hearings. This cannibalism is taking place in the right wing media exclusively.
The scary/interesting thing about this is something I heard listening to an interview today with the NYT's Jonathan Martin. He noted that "big money" had no effect on the "insurgents" (Tea Partiers, extremists, etc.), so the Kochs and PACs really have no control over the monster they created. While it's refreshing to see a situation where principle seems to trump bribery, I wish the principles weren't all batshit insane.
Limbaugh seems like he's on the way out. It's weird. Beck wants Limbaugh's angle as kingmaker, but has betrayed so many of the powerplayers that he's never going to be what he thinks he has the right to be. Ailes lost a lot of clout after 2012, and the Kochs have no actual plan with their money flinging, just throwing it at whatever demands money. The Heritage Foundation fucked up their position with the shut down, and John McCain is trying very hard to position himself as elder statesman with Sarah Palin manipulating the Tea Party against him as a personal hate-fuck.
So it's literally JUST Limbaugh with the narrative at the moment, and he's not long for this world. I give him five years at absolute maximum. And Scalia is sort of the only actually active chip in play they ever have, and he's proven himself unreliable.
