"It's getting clearer all the time that what these guys want more than anything is to humiliate their opponents in public"

Roy Edroso points out a wonderful example of that thing we keep talking about.

We're facing a party that over the last few years has fashioned itself into a home for people who want to find complete strangers and hurt them. I remember the days when these types of people were merely refered to as sociopaths.

The crazy PJ Media's article is a fascinating read into the self-delusional mind, by the way, fabricating a wonderous hypothetical social gathering where you can have a well-rehearsed diatribe ready to outwit an equally hypothetical liberal opponent. What I find so funny about it is that if I even actually was told anything remotely close to this, my immediate response would be "for someone trying to sound clever you sure sound like an idiot when you repeatedly forget how to pronounce the name of one of the two major political parties in this country."

"Jerk Elephant"

Latest comic - click here!

Republican voters are abandoning Herman Cain after all his infidelity issues and turning to Newt Gingrich, who has even more of them. This is because they don't actually care about Gingrich being an adulterer at all. They just care that Herman Cain doesn't annoy liberals as much as he used to because he's now a laughingstock.

This is also why the most right-wing, bible-thumping, hard-right crazypants that they should love in all respects, Rick Santorum, is getting less than a few percentage points in all the polls. Because he not only doesn't piss off liberals, he makes liberals laugh at him. Palin, Bachmann, Trump, Perry, Cain: they all plummeted from their perches for the same reason: they became jokes on The Daily Show.

Right-wingers want the most horrible person possible to be the Republican nominee, because being horrible to people pisses off liberals and that is what they actually care about.

Oh, hey, you have a little over a week to buy some crap if you want it before Christmas. So.... get on it, folks.
