The GOP deserves to die

❝ This is the sorry culmination of two trends that have disfigured the conservative movement: contempt for the facts and desire to win at all costs.

You may have thought that Republicans had sunk as low as they could possibly go last year when they nominated for the presidency a man who was singularly unfit, morally and mentally, for that post. But, no, once you start racing to the bottom you never quite stop. There is always another level of degeneracy to be plumbed.

RTFA. Here’s the link, again. There are 30 witnesses on the record about the latest charges against Moore. The foolishness of clerical fascism he endorses over the US Constitution would be sufficient in most states outside the Confederacy to disqualify him from office. The Republican Party simply doesn’t give a hoot.

    Paul Reynolds, the Republican national committeeman from Alabama said something about the timing of the accusation and the Post’s role breaking the story “doesn’t smell right.”
    “My gosh, it’s The Washington Post. If I’ve got a choice of putting my welfare into the hands of [Russian President Vladimir] Putin or The Washington Post, Putin wins every time,” he said.

    “The face of a soulless, intellectually corrupt party” https://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/right-turn/wp/2017/11/19/the-face-of-a-soulless-intellectually-corrupt-party/
    Also: “Before Charlottesville, David Blight, a Yale historian, was already planning a conference in November on “American Disunion, Then and Now.” “Parallels and analogies are always risky, but we do have weakened institutions and not just polarized parties but parties that are risking disintegration, which is what happened in the eighteen-fifties,” he told me. “Slavery tore apart, over fifteen years, both major political parties. It destroyed the Whig Party, which was replaced by the Republican Party, and divided the Democratic Party into northern and southern parts.”
    “So,” he said, “watch the parties” as an indicator of America’s health. (“Is America Headed for a New Kind of Civil War?” https://www.newyorker.com/news/news-desk/is-america-headed-for-a-new-kind-of-civil-war )

    GOP candidate says feminists have ‘snake-filled heads,’ hopes daughters don’t become ‘she devils’ https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/powerpost/wp/2018/01/25/gop-candidate-says-feminists-have-snake-filled-heads-hopes-daughters-dont-become-she-devils/ “The candidate, Courtland Sykes, wrote that “radical feminism” has a “crazed definition of modern womanhood.”
    “They made it up to suit their own nasty, snake-filled heads,” he said. “Men and women are different and gender-bending word games by a goofy nest of drugstore academics aren’t going to change anything — except the fantasy life of those confused people in ivory towers.”
    Sykes, who is one of several Republicans planning a run against Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-Mo.), posted the remarks on his Facebook page this week, though they were originally from an interview in September. Of the daughters he envisioned himself having in the future, he wrote that he wanted them to build “home based enterprises.” “I don’t want them [to] grow up into career obsessed banshees who [forgo] home life and children and the happiness of family to become nail-biting manophobic hell-bent feminist she devils,” he said.
    In an interview with The Washington Post, Sykes said that he fully supported women and that he didn’t believe his statement was demeaning to them.”
