A good not so tongue-in-cheek assessment of the GOP’s porcine lipsticked one.
One blogger I ran across who has been interviewing young GOP activists noted that lots of them know the nonsense their Party elders are spouting is just that, nonsense, but that they prefer it to responsible but unpopular and politically incorrect rational management of the US in the wake of the near melt down of the world’s economy. Heck, they can even cheer on economic collapse in hopes of picking up all the pieces afterward. They might not get the chance. A lot of the worlds most evil leaders swept aside their milquetoasty opponents during various crisis and instituted horrendous regimes.
Sensible “conservative” American leaders have been afraid of the mob ever since the French Revolution. Today’s GOP “conservatives” are rooting for the mob from the sidelines.
