The Big Grift/Long Con/Easy Marks

Predictions are hard, Barbie!

Republican leaders have known for years that their promise to repeal Obamacare was not ever going to happen, it was just a way of firing up the orcs and minions to do their bidding:

“We sort of all got what was going on, that there was this disconnect in terms of communication, because no one wanted to take the time out in the general public to even think about ‘Wait a minute—that can’t happen.’ ” But, [Cantor] adds, “if you’ve got that anger working for you, you’re gonna let it be.”

It’s a stunning admission from a former member of the party leadership—that the linchpin of GOP electoral strategy for the better part of a decade was a fantasy, a flame continually fanned solely because, when it came to midterm elections, it worked. (Barring, of course, his own.)

Yeah, stunning admission from Iago who got kicked to the curb before Weepy got kicked to the curb. Republicans lost control of the monster that they built out of left-over parts of Lee Atwater and Stom Thurmond when their necromancers and assorted voodoo priests dug them out of their dirt naps and revived them, and now they are starting to pay the price for weaponizing the Stupid.

    Shhhh, don’t tell their base but they really don’t care about a balanced budget either. Or abortion.

      I have come to the conclusion that the base doesn’t even really care about those issues, they just love the intoxication of hate, and they are happy to hate anyone
