You would begin to think that being socially conservative and being a liar go together....

Even Pat Buchanan thinks he's crazy, lol.

I predict a brokered convention wherein the party decides to run McCain/Palin again, because, what the hell, it's a lost cause anyway and they have a bunch of leftover bumper stickers.

This GOP are destroying themselves and it's a pleasure to watch.

See, it really isn't for me.

I'm well to the left of the Democrats, and think that many (most) of them are every bit as sociopathic as the Republicans. In IL we have had a GOP in shambles for a few years, and they've never got their act together in Cook County. What that leaves us with is a Democratic party in charge that has no checks on their greed, corruption and (worst of all) ineptness.

Both at a state and national level I'd like to see MORE healthy parties representing a broader range of POVs and more choices in elections. What we have now is hold your nose and vote Democratic because the "alternative" is horrifying.

I hope this is what will happen after the GOP explodes. I would love to have more choices too.

Nice post Tyrone. Few people admit that BOTH parties are in need of a shakedown. They are supposed to represent the people after all, right?

Sure, but I won't lie and say that I won't enjoy watching the crazed fundie nutbags and science-hating hillbillies that make up the modern day GOP go down hard, because I will. It's much easier to deal with corruption and ineptness in a party, than it is to fix the mouth-foaming insanity that has befallen the Republicans.

Now THAT is fiscally conservative.

In reply to an earlier post on Feb 24, 2012 2:43:13 PM PST
Hear hear. If there is only one major party with a thin link to sanity and even that party isn't a good choice, then we are all losers.

I wish every single day that the GOP would return to reality.

Since Santorum's wife doesn't have a voice the Little Woman CAN'T spread his words of wisdom!? She can clap.

Apparently Limbaugh has come up with a theory that Ron Paul struck a deal with Romney to only go after the notRomney and spare Romney and/or foreswear a third party run in exchange for future favors for his son in Congress, Rand Paul. (Republicans can bring the crazy, can't they?)

Anyway, it appears to me to be a much more straightforward gambit, that being if Ron Paul can outlive the last remaining (notPaul) notRomney maybe he'll have a shot at being the last remaining notRomney.

But, poor old Ron Paul, looks like the GOP would rather consider a brokered convention if it comes down to that but thanks for playing.

I think there's a deal to have Rand Paul divorce his wife and marry one of Romney's daughters. After that their son can marry a Bush and rule the gopers forever.

Lately I've been thinking (along the lines of the Pat Robertson reference below) that it's not so much new candidates the GOP needs. It's a new base because the main advantage a brokered candidate has at this point is that he could sail through to nominee without having do an idjit chicken dance with super gnarly quoteable quotes to satisfy the base so they might have a shot at actually winning in a general election.

They wouldn't support a candidate who demonstrated the ability to think and reason.

They are looking for a Faux Noise parrot. So that's what they've gotten.

Well seriously, follow my reasoning.... if a candidate didn't have to pander to the base all through a primary election cycle they might actually come across as less loopy when they get to the general election because the kinds of humiliating hoops they have to jump through to succeed against one another is a completely different set of things they are expected to say to defeat an opposition party candidate.

Oh I'm following your reasoning NIU !

I'm right there with ya. It's really a chicken-and-egg conundrum.

Which came first ?

The base comes first and they're the egg and the candidates say the silly things the egg demands to hear because they're chicken..
