So sorry to all my friends and relatives that are believers in the Dark Side.
But I just can’t help myself…
…when have I ever been able to help myself, one might sweetly ask me?
(Devilish smile ghosts my lips as I sit, poised, fingers ready to tap out this missive…)
What in the world am I referring to?
Why the hilarious, nonsensical, childish antics of the Grand Ol’ Party, otherwise known as the Republican Party.
I didn’t know Ronald Reagan. I didn’t vote for him (I’m not THAT old). In fact, I distinctly remember voting for President Carter during our 4th grade mock election that year. I was raised in a liberal household so I think I was simply following suit…really, how much can a 4th grader know about politics anyway?
But I have heard enough blather about him the last five years to know that he was famous for saying something to the effect that one should not say bad things about a fellow Republican.
If it was at all physically possible for skeletons to be rolling over in their graves, I bet you (see, didn’t go all slang-y, Palin-y there) President Reagan would be doing a 360 degree dance these days…almost like a chicken on a roasting spit. NOT inferring anything there..just trying to give you an image of the poor man revolving endlessly in his grave as he witnesses what has got to be the most befuddling thing to him…the excuse for the Republican Party and their machinations these days.
Yes, I am well aware that was a super duper run-on paragraph. Sorry. I got carried away.
Regardless, I don’t have anything specific to point out. I think the headlines speak for themselves.
Donald Trump calling Karl Rove “a total loser.” Mmm-hmmm. Pot, meet kettle.
The TIME magazine cover with Marco Rubio on it…the title “The Republican Savior.” (I think they think that the people of non-white descent in this country will vote Republican since they’ve put up a brown guy as the “New White Hope.” Irony and snark here folks…nothing else intended.) Do you think anyone should tell them that Mr. Rubio is of Cuban descent, and is therefore not considered a Latino…which I am pretty sure were the group of people that they’re trying to target?
I could go on, but my triple 1/2 caffe dark chocolate mocha with whip is beckoning, ebay needs to be dealt with, the dogs are not slobbering at my feet yet trying to get their dinner and the darling diva of a daughter is still napping….so I must move on.
Vaya con dios mi amigas/amigos!
