I Couldn’t Have Said It Better Myself: Assholes


Via Mark, one of the most pungent and complete assessments of the Republican base/party ever coined in a single sentence (bolded). From Balloon Juice‘s John Cole:

The funny thing about all of this is that no matter how bad all their ideas are, no matter how disastrous their governance has been, no matter how many horrible things they have done to the economy and this country, what really is killing the Republican party is that deep down, they are just complete assholes. You see it in the way they treat women, you see it in the way they treat minorities, you see it in the way they treat homosexuals, you see it in the way they treat anyone who is not a white Christian, and you see it in the way they treat anyone who disagrees with them slightly about anything. They just have no respect for anyone, and it shows.

Yup. That about covers it.

  1. I really was angry with John Cole when he backed the war in Iraq. And I was really glad when he turned his back on Bush and changed his party registration from Republican to Democratic.

  2. He’s apologized for that any number of times, and as the saying goes, there’s no harsher critic of a belief than somebody who converted to another. Or words to that effect.
