I enjoyed the following New York Times op-ed not just for the news analysis but also for this delicious quote, which sums up nicely what has happened to a once great party now controlled by loons:
"This is just an extension of the Republican war on facts. If you find a truth disagreeable, simply deny it. Call it corrupt. Suggest that it is little more than one side of a story — an opinionated, biased one — and insist that there is another explanation. The base will buy it."
I find it dismaying that as I get older and more conservative — or rather, she'd wide-eyed liberal views from my college days — the Republican Party keeps moving further and further to the right, away from me.
And not just moving, but running. After having stripped off their clothes and screaming wildly in the vast dark of night. And here I am, left in the center, scratching my head and wondering, "Who the [bleep] was THAT?!"
Anyway, 2012 is becoming a clear choice between the community organizer and the company harvester.
