Jon Huntsman still remains one of the few remaining rational Republicans out there willing to call out the emperor for wearing no clothes.
“The party right now is a holding company that’s devoid of a soul and it will be filled up with ideas over time and leaders will take their proper place. We can’t be known as a party that’s fear-based and doesn’t believe in math.”
With the fiscal cliff deadline a few hours away, it appears that Republicans are ending the year in the same manner they started each of the last four – creating needless crisis after crisis as they cater to the ridiculous and irresponsible elements of their party. Unfortunately, Huntsman’s words will fall on deaf ears as the GOP is determined to carry their vaudeville act into the new year.
I couldn’t end the year without posting for an entire week. I’d like to say I’ve been relaxing and enjoying the break away from politics and blogging but the truth is I’ve been ill for the last while. Not a great way to end the year but, hey, it is what it is. I’ll soon recover and regular programming will continue on this site.
Here’s wishing each and every one of you a wonderful, prosperous and healthy New Year. Thank you for supporting this site as you do and I look forward to another year of illustrations and sharing political thought with all of you.
