Faced with a cataclysm of epic proportions, Republicans have reached the lashing out phase of grief. Chagrined that they allowed a carnival barker become the face of modern Republicanism, they're blaming the media and Democrats for allowing them to put a gun to their heads and pull the trigger.
The Party of Personal Responsibility is nothing of the kind. It's only raison d'etre is to say "no" to anything progressive. It exists solely to cockblock the inevitable change which will sweep it away. And it's hilarious that it has hastened its own end by giving its rabid base what it wanted. It has now learned that it really isn't the "new majority"; it just coasted on the fumes of an empty gas tank.
So, dear GOPers: Cry me a river. You did this to yourselves. We on this side of the aisle didn't have to lift a finger. And we'll have to fix your fuckups all by ourselves, as work isn't something you're really into.
This is your pre-debate open thread.
