Such maturity is admirable, no?
Yep... been awhile. Yep.
*sighs, looks off to horizon*
Too long... too long a time.
No, I didn't mean maturity on my part... it's those notably respectable Republicans again - the ones who crowed back in 2000 that "the adults are in charge again". Well, we seem in so many ways to be back in Clinton-time as far as they're concerned, so it shouldn't be surprising that they've gone back to Clinton-era whining and posturing:
Over a dozen members of the conservative wing of the RNC have submitted a new resolution, to be eventually voted on by the entire RNC, that would call on the Democratic party to rename itself the “Democrat Socialist Party.” If the RNC adopts this resolution, the RNC’s official view would become that Democrats are socialists.
The "consevative wing of the RNC"? The mind croggles. People who're all misty-eyed over the good old days of Franco, Fuijimori and Rios Montt? Folks who want to scatter land-mines across the Southern border? After all, the mainstream of Repug thought, to judge by Beck, Limbaugh et al is little more than a copy of The New American come to horrifying life - and yet there's people to the right of them. Scary.
