Gifts Aplenty

The GOP is a gift that keeps on giving…

No matter who you are, it's basically impossible to hide your true personality or beliefs for a long stretch of time in a close personal relationship. It's especially difficult to hide your true self if you live and work in the public eye.

I have a feeling that the middle-aged white men who comprise the GOP would rather revert to laws that governed the Wild West. Specifically, laws forced upon women whereby it was not a crime to beat or rape your wife, and then blaming her to justify the abuse.

They might not come out and say it – and actually pay lip-service to the rights of women – but it doesn't take an idiot to see where the GOP mind-set aligns itself.

And true to form, Fox News glossed over the "legitimate rape" comments. According to Think Progress:

Fox News is following its well established pattern of underreporting stories that don't appeal to its conservative base, instituting a virtual blackout of Rep. Todd Akin's (R-MO) controversial — and widely condemned — comments about "legitimate rape."

What's next? Taking away a woman's right to vote? Considering their track record of voter suppression with low-income communities and minorities, it's not such a far-fetched notion.

Oh, come on! It can't be this easy…
Romney has no idea what it is to struggle on a day-to-day basis, and now he picks a VP running mate who wants to single-handedly minimize social security benefits?

Good God, I can't wait to see just one debate between Joe Biden and Paul Ryan. I don't care how smart the right-wing thinks Ryan is, when he comes to the national forefront as someone who wants to mess with senior benefits he's all but finished.

And don't think President Obama's campaign won't take advantage of the easy pickings.

One Way or Another

An assortment of both Republican and Democrat lawmakers are caught with their proverbial "pants down" sooner or later. The only difference is Democrats do not base their political platforms on moral issues as vehemently as the right-wing, which seems to make their actions all the more hypocritical.
Judge not lest you be judged…
