The Republicans’ Ball and Chain

Several years ago the republicans needed the far right Christians to win votes. They clamped that ball and chain around their ankles when they needed them. The ball at the end of that chain was great for them as it rolled forward and pulled the Republican party ahead. Now however they can’t unclamp that ball and chain. They are having to struggle to drag that ball forward and it’s painfully dragging their party down.

They're abandoning the Christian line (and frankly, this Christian Democrat is relieved) to take up the Democrats are Socialists cause.

It's only a matter of time before Repuglycans pull out the "we're being persecuted" mantra.... oh, wait.

it was easier, back in the 1980's, to take on the ball and chain than to actually developing positive policies.

making a deal with the devil never ever works. you'd think they would've figured that out before now.

Actually, I think the problem with the party is they're in the thrall of more than one type of fundamentalist.

The fundamentalist conservatives, fundamentalist neocons, fundamentalist supply siders and fundamentalist social conservatives are all dragging that party down.

Excuse my French but fuck 'em.
