Dallas, Dick & Bernie: The (Really) Odd Cou — um, Trio

Yesterday, we heard about how our senior, nominally Republican, US senator may have a fetish for crusty New England socialists.    Today we get this over the email:


Let me check the calendar.  Yep, we are STILL in the midst of primary season. And there is DallasSTILL a total of four Republican candidates in the primary for US Senate.  (There may be four names, but Greg Brannon appears to be the ONLY one of the three challengers waging a halfway serious campaign.) 

I wonder which Republicans against intrusive government Dallas plans to invest my $5 on.  It can’t be Dick Burr — who has proudly endorsed NSA spying domestically and expressed a desire to see even more.  It can’t be Thom Thilli$ — who has voted to allow Loretta Lynch to become AG, FOR debt ceiling increases, and FOR funding of Planned Committee chairman U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) (R) and ranking member Senator Richard Burr (R-NC) (L) address Department of Veterans Affairs Secretary Eric Shinseki (not pictured) as he testifies before a Senate Veterans Affairs Committee hearing on VA health care, on Capitol Hill in Washington May 15, 2014.

It’s interesting that the GOPe is trumpeting this meaningless EPA vote.  We’re told all the time that defunding ObamaCare is not worth the effort, because Obama is just going to veto it.  But then they come along with this EPA vote, and think it’s wonderful. 

Folks, wethom-smoking are being played.  I can’t stress it enough.  The GOPe and NCGOPe have reverted back to pre-Reagan times.  It’s back to the days ofbeing a clique.  We’ve got a bunch of folks who enjoy being at the center of government power, or spending time there, wielding the power of the state, or being able to facilitate government “favors” for various and sundry cronies.  This bunch segregates itself into a D group and an R group. 

They kind of remind me of that popular cheerleader in high school who only spoke burrto you when she needed your vote for homecoming queen or student body president or something like that.  Outside of those brief periods, you’re *dead*, unwashed — a nerd.  THAT is how the program works in Raleigh and DC today.

It’s one big non-stop circular self-admiration session.  And we’re on the outside being ignored — left to foot the bill and wonder WHAT the hell is going on.
