    Why bother?

    Sometimes I think we give these loons way more attention than their actual constituents. Most thinking people know that she's just pandering to the fringes and don't take this seriously.

    Where should "need to know what the enemy thinks" give way to "don't spoil my mood with this shit"?

    Michelle Bachman is one of those nuts who LOOK nuts in every picture I've seen of her - those bugged-out, delirious eyes. Anyway, why does this cunt get so much media attention anyway? She a congressman; one congressman is a little pissant in the federal gov't. anyway.

    Because Teabaggers, Conservatives and Fox News have made her one of their heroes. Plus she was a Republican Presidential primary contender in 2012. Didn't get very far, but it still gave her a certain celebrity status. Not to mention that she says outrageous & nutty things, which the media loves.

    Just drop a house on the hag. The saddest part of all is she most definitely has no fabulous shoes to steal. What a waste. Maybe we could raid her hubby's shoe room?

    I am so going to miss her. Who's going to take over the mantle of Entertainingly Crazy? The GOP has lots of crazy, but few of them are really entertaining. Maybe Sarah Palin, but she's just a Fox news clown now.

    She is just a fucking lunatic that should have been committed to a psychiatric ward a long time ago. The GOP would be so much better off without her, Sarah Palin and all the other FLAKY FUNDAMENTALISTS polluting the air with their propaganda.

    Then how come Michele Bachmann & Sarah Palin were featured speakers at CPAC earlier this month? Or does CPAC only invite "flaky fundamentalists" who should be "committed to a psychiatric ward"?

    Those two would have lots of company in the looney bin, since much of the GOP's current national leadership was there, too. Senator Minority Leader Mitch McConnell was waving a rifle over his head, endorsing all of CPAC's radical positions, same as Michele.

    Which confirms my contention that Republicans tend to act in lock-step. And your saying that not ALL conform to a radical Right Wing philosophy does not mitigate the fact that MOST do, and they are the ones in control of your Party. So can we dispense with the semantic games, and face the reality of what the Republican Party has become?

    That is on the national level and I realize that there is a problem with the FLAKY FUNDIES controlling the GOP on the national level. On the state and local levels, that is not so. But given the changes taking place in the GOP with many younger republicans rejecting the tea party's control of the national GOP, things are going to change for the better. Change takes time, the GOP national organization is not going to change overnight. You are not going to see the lockstep with the tea party for very much longer.

    ahhh...

    I guess we can overlook State Governors Rick Scott, Rick Perry, Bobby Jindal, Scott Walker, the list of Right Wing fanatics goes on. Rejecting Federal aid dollars to their States, pushing anti-gay, anti-women, anti-labor legislation, being total dick-wads. And how about the wacko Deep South States? We read about a new outrage their Republican legislatures concoct every day.

    But their real trump card is the voter redistricting they've engineered (gerrymandering), along with voter suppression. If you can't win votes, block votes. And makes votes for you carry more weight than for your opponents.

    That's a pretty sad team you've joined. It's not just a national phenomenon, but State & local as well. Sorry you're in denial about it, but flaky fundamentalists control your Republican Party from top to bottom, national to local.

    They don't control the GOP in my home state of New York. All the tea partiers and FLAKY FUNDAMENTALISTS have been pushed into the Conservative Party.

    Well it's lucky for us your State of New York controls the rest of the US!

    WHEW! I was worried there for a moment for the rest of us.

    Not breaking soon enough. It looks like Teabaggers will again triumph in the 2014 midterms, as they did in 2010. Making President Obama's last 2 years a nightmare, for him and for gays, women, labor, the poor & minorities. But a windfall for the 1%.

    It is going to break a lot faster than you realize. The GOP can no longer afford to be run by the right wing lunatics on the national level. Otherwise it will no longer be a viable political force in the US. Please spare me the crying about organized labor and the poor. It is democrats pandering to crooked organized labor and the unmotivated urban poor that has wrecked most older northern US cities. The labor unions and the poor have been feeding off a huge gravy train for too damned long and taxpayers are sick of it. I have zero sympathy for organized labor because they helped chase business and industry out of the northeast and Midwest. I have zero sympathy for most of the urban poor because they are lazy and too dependent on free handouts from the taxpayers. All the money that went into these poor inner city communities and the poverty still persists for no legitimate reason other than many of these poor people don't want to better themselves. So put a sock in it Art.

    Well of course you're correct. What taxpayers want are billion-dollar bailouts of corporations too big to fail, corporate welfare at middle-class taxpayer expense, bonuses and golden parachutes for those who caused the financial meltdown, no accountability, and no regulation of business whatsoever, so the same meltdown can happen all over again.

    I gotta admit, you got it nailed. Not the many million-dollar bonuses paid for with government bailouts that would feed thousands of poor for a year, but the "unmotivated urban poor" sucking us dry.

    Hey, I like your vision of 1% America. Are you getting your share yet? Or are you just one of the deluded wannabees the rich are leading by the nose? I think I can guess...

    Rob, remember what we were talking about earlier over email? Notice the clock? He's right on time.

    Happy happy hour Bobbi!

    None of those individuals are "Right Wing fanatics" though I suppose the label is a subjective one, so there may be some people out there that think YOU are "flaky" and a "fanatic" too.

    and drunk or well on the way

    Suggestion: How about we don't bandy about these derogatory labels and instead base our discussions on substance.

    Well, I'm not sure your assessment is unbiased. Walker is a well-known puppet of the John Birch-founding Koch brothers, Rick Scott is an unindicted felon, Bobby Jindal is a right-wing dim bulb, and Rick Perry ("Governor Goodhair", as Molly Ivins called him) is a Tea Partier---hardly an establishment Republican in the lot of them. I'm not sure there are any establishment Republicans left.

    You're absolutely right, I'm so wrong. Those Governors are actually pro-gay rights, pro-women's rights, pro-labor, pro-poor, they would never sign laws to deny civil rights to their citizens, or to disenfranchise voters. They wouldn't have anything to do with extreme Right Wing initiatives. I'm just so stupid & uninformed! Thank you for setting me on the path to political understanding.

    YourName2000 saidGood God people, if you continue to see things in stark black and white, you're only perpetuating the polarization (pretty much by definition). At that point, you're as bad as those you rail against.

    Amazing you argue against polarization, since it's the principle political tactic Republicans have used for years. The Party of No is all about no compromise, black & white party-line votes, with us or against us.

    Yet in typical hypocritical fashion, it's everyone ELSE who is being polarizing, never them. Well, I understand your message.

    Spread your guilt around, then shame the other side into concessions. Meanwhile concede nothing yourself.

    It's actually been very effective, the "both sides do it" tactic, that has the public convinced Democrats are as immoral as Republicans. Then rely upon an unshakeable Republican base that has no scruples, and a more problematic Democratic base in which doubt can be sown, coupled with Independents now split down the middle, and you have the basis for Republican election victory. I salute your cleverness!

    I don't think anyone is putting it into stark black and white terms.

    We know not all Democrats are supportive of gay rights, and that not all Republicans are against those rights. This is clear to most of us. So please stop with the chorus that the "accepted wisdom" among those of us to the left is that Democrats are 100% angels and Republicans are 100% devils.

    We are aware of minor changes in the Republican party, but we are also aware of the great divide that still exists between the parties on rights for gays.

    Look at the voting records at the local, state, and national level of politicians in the two major parties when it comes to civil rights for gays. Democrats, by in large, are supportive of them, and most Republicans are against.

    It is what it is.

    No U.S. President has ever been at the forefront as an advocate for civil rights. Not Abraham Lincoln, Lyndon B. Johnson, or President Obama. The primary agents of change have always been the people and congressional representatives. But the aforementioned presidents received credit because they did take action, however it came about. So feel free to continue with potshots, but they don't diminish the bills signed into law and the executive actions taken.
