It would appear that the only true prerequisites for anyone wishing to run as a Republican candidate these days is that they be totally delusional and out of touch with reality – past and present. A sort of leave your brain at the door policy.
Kristia Cavere, from Tuxedo in Orange County, is the Tea Party and a Republican candidate for New York’s 19th Congressional District seat held by Hall. Cavere thinks that the Democrats have co-opted Republican values and claims, among other things, that:
“The Republicans are the ones who liberated Europe in World War II.”
Amazing. Every new Republican we hear from these days is one notch dumber than the previous one. This is the party that has Sue Lowden running in Nevada chattering on about her big breakthrough in health care reform – pay your doctor’s bill with chickens. Don’t have a chicken to barter with? No problem. Dr. Quackenbush also accepts sheep, pigs and, as a last resort, a turtle dove and a partridge in a pear tree. Just don’t forget to pack them in your overnight bag when you go in for that lobotomy.
Then there’s J.D Hayworth, the birther whack job in Arizona running against John McCain. If this guy wins, he’ll give Michele Bachmann a good run for her money for top spot in the Really Really Stupid Republican category.
And of course there is lovely Sarah Palin, a permanent fixture on the political scene, who makes a jackass of herself every time she opens her mouth or reads the palms of her hands.
Is there any doubt that the GOP is the party of choice for imbeciles, racists, homophobes, bigots, gun nuts, birthers, militia kooks and teabaggers? It’s like flies gravitating towards a pile of fresh dung, put in place compliments of their favorite Republican politician. The aroma is way too attractive for this demented lot to resist.
So Republicans liberated Europe you say? Fine. I’m sure you’re right. Now please put on that pretty white jacket and get back to your padded cell before you hurt yourself.
