The Republican Party in not competent at governing, although they are good at seizing power, because they have no ethical boundaries for the lies that they tell. When faced with public confrontations, between their statements and the true facts, they double-down on the lies and often follow with an insane tirade. other times, they launch their rants for the mere enjoyment of committing TEAbuggery! The following article provides examples:

There seems to be no end to these Republican rants; in fact they seem to be increasing both in number and stupidity. There have been lots of idiots and deluded madman over time, but in earlier days you could just ignore them. Nowadays the have so much power and money that they get all the air time and print space they want, and even in Congress you're not safe and you have to sit through and listen to rant being read to you. And it works, because I don't get half as angry these days than I used to get before.
After the great dumbing down of their own constituents the GOP/1% have started their next great campaign to NUMB DOWN the Democrats and lefties. After all, there is only so much garbage a person can digest without harm to his or her system.

Love the Honey Maid ad - what a beautiful response to stupid, ignorant people.
Speaking of stupid, ignorant people, I guess the Koch brothers will have all their cash stuffed into their coffins when they die - as long as they take their black, nasty hearts with them, too, that's fine with me. The money will do more good as worm food than it's doing now.
It was an unfortunate moment but did give me a laugh. I saw the ad on TV for the New Republican party. Same as the old but with a shiny new foil cap. If the democrats one and all would just stop trying to out do these dim wits and stand up for the policies that are truly American, I think the rest would begin to fall into line.
I would like to see some democrats respond to reporters when asked about one of the many republican lies by saying, "That is not a factual statement, and you as a reporter should know better". Then go on with a factual statement on a completely different issue. When asked about the ACA I wish they would stop apologizing and start stepping up with facts. Have there been problems with the site? Sure, so what? There are now 10 million people signed up, more will continue to sign up, be proud of that. Do we actually have a foreign policy that does not react to every slight by going off to yet another war? Yes, we do - be proud of that. Democrats under the leadership of Obama: have ended DADT, recapitalized Banks, toppled Moammar Gaddafi, told Mubarak to get out, ended Bush torture policies, tried to close GITMO, improved America's image abroad, kicked banks out of the student loan program and the treasury will save $67 billion over ten years, $36 billion of which will go to expanding Pell Grants to lower-income students. Obama has also turned toward more "green" technology, acknowledging the reality of rapid climatic change, supported more and improved veterans benefits, worked to improve the FDA for food safety and so much more, be proud of the many accomplishments.
Republicans dare to brag about cutting benefits for vets, children and the elderly, redirect their pride in the negative to pride for those who do work for improving the lot of all Americans.

An illustrative example of problems governing when the money to buy the election was deemed the primary reason for holding the office:
After Pete Wilson (R) left the time bomb of energy deregulation (think Enron for non-Californians) for Gray Davis leading to recall election structured where if recall passed (narrowly did) top vote getter would become Governor (except not Davis even though he got the most votes--Arnold S. came in second in a field that included known prostitutes). Arnold's first major proposal was to finance the budget deficit with a bond sale (historically limited to infrastructure projects) and thus added to the deficit where bond interest was becoming a measurable budget component (see Wilson's prison building frenzy doubling the number of prisons).
Even the Norquists and other conservative or GOP voices did not view this as sane governance.

Given the average Republican / Teabagger are generally the most philosophunculistic, moronic, steatopygic excuse for a politician that it has ever been my good fortune to not vote for. The main reason they have not been regularly culled is because Life, as many people have spotted, is, of course, terribly unfair.

"Oh, Vlad, you are really Pat’s kind of guy. Turns out God does like communists, after all. He switched sides. He can do that. He’s God."
I'll have to check later to see if Maher got smitten. Which is uncomfortably like smores, so odds are good he did, I guess. Why can't Vlad just impale Pat and put him out of our misery? Those were 7 just cracker jack (yeah, I'm trying to get them on the hit list too because a, I can't hardly find them anymore, and b) when I do, they stick in my teeth. Sort of like reading all that insanitea made my stomach crawl. The good news is those fools are on the losing side of history, we have come too far to go back and we never will, despite what these fools think. They only listen to each other so they actually think they have a shot, but the truth is, the world, most of it anyway, is soundly behind progressiveness in social and political matters. You can't put the genie back in the bottle. It sort of goes along with another oldie I remember - how you gonna keep 'em down on the farm once they've seen Paree? Well, you didn't, hence the demise of the family farm and the incredible growth of cities around the world. So, let these billionaires rant amongst themselves, drink their whine and choke on the thought of what we, the people, are doing outside their gated communities. Because, we are doing all of what they think and more, we're voting democrat.

I'll be setting up my Get Out The Vote
(GOTV) table tomorrow morning at
the Friends of Mexico meeting to sign
up people to vote who are here. We
all can make a difference if we vote!

I clicked through their rants. Pat Robertson has always needed therapy, since he is so sure that God only talks to him. Glen Beck should have been put on meds years ago. Rick Perry, so little brain power there, it is hard to comment. The Kochs are unhappy because someone is finally standing up to them. I love HOney Maid and also Cheerios for their latest ads. Haven't bought graham crackers in a long time, but will this week.
". . . read this great American’s op-ed out loud and in its entirety to his fellow senators, claiming it represented “mainstream” America."
Moran is absolutely blasphemous in his assessment of Charles Koch as a great American! From a different article, 52% of Americans don`t know who the Koch brothers are, so how can this represent "mainstream" America?
Glenn Beck — I have no words but I really hope he isn`t a communicable disease! His ship is sinking and he has his mouth open!
Pat Buchanan — This guy`s elevator does not go all the way to the top! So he is hearing voices, and then responding? OK Pat, get that white coat with the extra long sleeves out of your closet!
Rick Perry — He`s too busy raping the state of Texas to be concerned about prison issues. When the issue was brought up by the Justice Department, he responded "Oops!"
Boomer Esiason and Mike Francesa — I have never heard of these two neanderthals, and obviously when God was giving out brains, they said they`d get the next one!
Pat Robertson — He has it wrong! It is the Republican healthcare plan with its death benefits that is killing people. Delusional idiot, this one!
The American Decency Association — Satan is in graham crackers? That`s rich. I`d say more like `Satan is in the The American Decency Association`. Wonderful video response from Honey Maid. When I was a kid, my mother would bake a cake and always make extra chocolate frosting. The extra always went on graham crackers. Yum! Is there any other kind other than Honey Maid?!
