General horror aside, it really is all kinds of hilarious watching Republicans, for once, have to try to throw somebody over the side.
I mean, they don’t even really know HOW.
Usually it’s a Democrat saying something like, “possibly Republicans are assholes, sometimes” and then ensues two weeks of screaming from Joe Lieberman and Harold Ford about irresponsibility and The Tone and then the unfortunate fuck quits and we all talk wistfully about what it would be like to have a grown-up political party.
Meanwhile Republicans can say things like “we should cave in the entire earth and shove all the poor people in the hole, especially the child-bearing brown ladies” and the national party just sort of shrugs, because: Tuesday.
Now they’re trying to scrape Akin off the side of the ship, which is its own irony in that he was only slightly ruder about what they all think than they usually are, and he’s clinging like a barnacle.
Pass the popcorn. I could watch this all day.
