Do you have any examples of Republicans who *were* thrown out for the things listed, or is that just conjecture on your part?
I hope this was a joke?
Given gbaji's slide into logic oblivion (over the past two years in particular) I'm going with "Meth addiction".
No. I'm not kidding.
But you have to remember that he's pretty much just a talking head for the party, and the party itself is so at odds with itself right now that it shouldn't be surprising. Who does he support? The Tea Party idiots? The Evangelists? The Reformists? The oldschool, rich white guys?
The GOP isn't a cohesive party anymore. They managed to trudge along for a while on the back of social issues, but they've invested so much there, and lost so many voters because of them, that they're lost now. They HAVE to reform if they have any chance of surviving - every Republican leader has been fairly open about this. But the GOP is pushing harder than ever on those issues, particularly in battleground states where they were most problematic. North Carolina, for instance.
My favorite part, though, has to be how active they're being in blocking student aid legislation, while openly acknowledging the fact that they'll fail if they don't serious ramp up their recruitment with young voters.
Increasing their tuition, reducing their student aid, and ramping up their interest rates sounds like the perfect
way to court young voters. Yup, yup. Edited, Aug 17th 2013 12:01am by idiggory
