Stupid Omphaloskeptics

In today's Spokesman Review we learn that the Republican Party is doing some navel gazing.

Stung by an image that it’s too rigidly conservative and too “stupid” about its words and tactics, a somber Republican Party vowed Friday to change its ways.  

But the party’s first meeting since the November election featured little public dialogue about how specifically to adjust, or at least tolerate, policies that would have broader appeal, particularly on guns, immigration and social issues. And few wanted to discuss where the conservative and politically difficult tea party movement fit.  

Apparently, nobody wants to get their hands dirty picking the lint. Can't say that I blame them. Defending yourself from extremists can be hell.

Remember when Democrats could actually sing out loud?

When they could REALLY dream?

When they weren't poised, pretty, fake, and Fascist?

Once the tea baggers got a hold of the Republican party they brought it to the 7th grade level. Now they can't get out of it.

I think 'coward' is the pitiful remnant of my brilliant, if aborted, comment on the state of our political class.

But, 'coward' does get to the point.

Noel Coward, just for the hell of it:

“It's discouraging to think how many people are shocked by honesty and how few by deceit.”
