They’re gonna lose. First, there is no republican party anymore. It fractured and devoured itself after the election. The breaking and eating goes on(Please no fat white guy jokes). The moderates in the post-Republican party rely on the bludgeoning bully tactics of the Glenn Becks and Rush Limbaughs. Those over-inflated egos, stroked and nurtured by the so-called moderate republicans, are rampaging in their orgy of belligerence. That gate was thrown open long ago. There is no calling them back to civil discourse and responsibility.
These are the perverts who use the suffering of hurricane Sandy and the horrible incident in Benghazi as a political bludgeon. They were the ones who excused George Zimmerman fully, crafting mafia-lawyer excuses for the murder of Trayvon Martin, only to drop the story once the real George Zimmerman was revealed fully by his own actions and dishonesty. They are the ones that twist and edit words fully out of context, even in the face of the truth of those words, and then continue the lie as a matter of course. They are the ones who would call a college student before congress talking about birth control and issues pertaining to a woman’s health as a slut. These men have no shame. They ran the now dead Republican party. They are highly paid…by their moderate sheep.
So the punks and bullies will dominate in this post-Republican era. They have nothing of substance for an agenda. All they have is all they had; obstruction and chaos. And now all that is left to them is that very tiny group called the Tea Party, a FOX and Karl Rove created vehicle to promote far-right wing and corporate interests under the guise of populism.
So this is my prediction, based on the words of the belligerent punditry on the Right. They will resurrect the Tea Party to create as much chaos as possible, and as a means of redefining the party, or what is left of it. For the rest of us, we will have to endure a media that will give them undeserved agency and voice in the culture, while ignoring the real issues affecting this nation and planet. But then that was always the strategy on the Right.
