Sadistic Joy

Am I the only one relishing some sort of sadistic joy while watching the Republicans try to erect their big tent in the middle of a circular firing squad all the while telling us they are the party of freedom? Not sure which freedom they are talking about, the one that doesn’t give women the freedom of choice or the one that doesn’t give gays the freedom of marriage.

Whatever they are talking about, there are times when you can tell they don’t even believe what they are saying. You have to admit, there is a certain dark entertainment in listening to them and watching their show. I never knew desperation could have a humorous side.

It does have a dark and strangely attractive humor to it, doesn't it?

It's like watching a zombie movie. Zombies have no direction = Republicans.
Zombies repeat the same thing even when it makes no sense = Republicans.
Zombies walk aimlessly seeking weak fresh meat = Republicans.
Zombies are fairly easy to defeat = Republicans.
Zombies smell like poo = Republicans... Okay, that last one was uncalled for. They smell like wee, too.

The Republicans are lost without their Emperor.

Anyone who only wants a moment, send the rest of your moments to me. I've got no problem laughing at their zombification for a long-ass time.

the freedom they're talking about?

the freedom of the obscenely rich to fleece everyone else and claim bragging rights about it.

Two Crows beat me to it. The freedom to make money and the freedom from paying taxes on that money.

Also, the freedom for white people to own guns and the freedom for the cops to bust the asses of black people who own guns.

Freedom to delight in their Roman bacchanal of money and power while the rest of us starve. That's all they've ever wanted.

If they weren't also simultaneously helping the Democrats do this to the country, I might be sharing your joy. As it is, I just wish we had at least a few Republicans whom I could respect as human beings.

Seriously - I mean it.

I really don't want to think of Republicans erecting anything, much less their big tents, but not that you gone and done it..., hahaha!
