Todays GOP moving from the ridiculously stupid to the space-cadet silly
A member of the Republican National Committee told me Tuesday that when the RNC meets in an extraordinary special session next week, it will approve a resolution rebranding Democrats as the Democrat Socialist Party.

Thats fine, the Republicans should go ahead and do that, as long as
they accept this appropriate title as well:
Things for the Republicans are bad, very bad. It is worse than just about any Republican wants to admit. […]
…But the big picture is clear for all to see: Under Republican rule,
government got bigger and more intrusive.
Which brings us to personal freedoms: From the legislating of
morality (Schiavo as the prime example), to the various conservative-led state bans on gay marriage, the Republicans did very little to
expand personal freedoms and if anything looked like the party trying
to take freedoms away. […]
No one is stepping up and accepting any responsibility. The public only sees a bunch of cowards afraid to take responsibility.
