Daily Kos Week in Review: Marauding Savages

As President Obama's re-election campaign gathers steam, Kossacks are setting aside most of their intramural disputes so as to, in the words of Sinead O'Connor, "fight the real enemy." That enemy, of course, is the divisive, sadistic, greedy, none-too-bright Republican party. 

As usual, each headline is preceded by the blogger's name or pseudonym. 

Kos: The GOP is the party of hatred...  

...[Republicans] can no longer divide people based on race, as Rick "Niggerhead" Perry found out. It's much harder to divide people based on sexual orientation, as Michele Bachmann and her very butch husband Marcus found out.

So what's left? It is a party that can only function on divisiveness and hate. Strip that away, and all you have left is Wall Street, and those guys aren't very popular right now.

otto: ...and victim-blaming...

...The GOP is officially the "Blame the Victim and Spare No Punishment" Party...

...The bulk of the Republican party now holds fringe beliefs.  This fringe conservative party is now the party of punishment.  All actions deserve punishment.  

If you were to present a story of rape told by a woman, the bulk of Republican voters would be most inclined to doubt the story of the woman.  They seem to automatically assume that the woman is guilty of some crime of inaction or perhaps she even could be considered to have actively solicited the treatment...

Dante Atkins: ...and torture and murder

...A Republican legislator in Florida wants to bring back the firing squad...

Why not just rename the Republican Party to the "I want to see people I don't like die painfully" Party? It would be more apt...

Jed Lewison: Republican presidential candidates sound mentally challenged

...There is so much damn whacko stuff going on in this debate, I think we can safely say it's the #HPV debate, if you know what I mean. Too much HPV vaccine. Way, way too much...

Ray Pensador: Conservatives are ignorant savages

...The Left represents the age of intellectual enlightenment based on thousands of years of human history...

Liberalism represents the true example of the "Shiny City on The Hill," then the Right represents marauding packs of savages assaulting the city relentlessly, trying to overrun its gates so they can get inside and impose a rein of backwardness, ignorance, base greed, superstition, and misery...

MinistryOfTruth: The left reads books -- the right just watches TV

...The library [at Occupy Boston] was impressive. As a book nerd I was quite proud. To the fools who would like to compare the tea party as an equivalent of #OccupyWallStreet I have only this to say, #ows has a library, the tea party has Fox News. Nuff said...
