I've been following the recent meeting of the CPAC group. It is amazing how all these right wingers look up to the likes of Joe the Plumber and Rush Limbaugh. The Republicans are counting on these losers to lead them. Great.
*** I did find a blogger that sums it up, Coturnix at Science Blogs:
...The Republican party, is now a clown car.
The sane, thoughtful conservatives have left it over the years, some prominent ones quite publicly last year, either more openly by stating they are leaving GOP, or a little more carefully, by endorsing Obama for President.
What is left are racist, sexist, homophobic, femiphobic, xenophobic, Creationist, authoritarian, cowardly scuzbuckets like Rush Limbaugh, Michele Bachmann, Bobby Jindal, Steve Sailer, Sarah Palin, Newt Gingrich, Sean Hannity, Anne Coulter and Joe The Plumber. And the lowlife that came to Palin events to drool at her. And the most insane Republicans in Congress. The sane ones lost their elections. None of them left in the House. A couple of them still in the Senate, but will have to switch to Independent if they want to get re-elected in their Blue states. The brand is THAT damaged....
