Backing Away

“Who would ever have thought blacks would get out and support the first black president?  Who would ever have thought women would shy away from the party of transvaginal probes?  Who would ever have thought gays would work against a party that treated them as immoral and subhuman?  Who would have ever thought young people would desert a party that ignored science and hectored on social issues?  Who would ever have thought Latinos would scorn a party that expected them to finish up their chores and self-deport?”

– Columnist Maureen Dowd, on the declining state of the Republican Party.  She coquettishly compares the GOP to the ancient Mayans; noting that the latter civilization self-destructed from internal bickering and a long-term refusal to progress.  Then again, at least the Mayans left behind some things of value.

Quote of the Day

“Republicans being against sex is not good.  Sex is popular.”

Alex Castellanos, a GOP strategist, on his party’s war on women.

Oh, my God!  An American conservative committed two of the greatest sins: he said something bad about the Republican Party and something good about sex.  If he says Obama might stand a chance at reelection, that’ll be a third strike, and he’ll be relegated to a spot on “Dancing with the Stars!”

First Quote of the Day

“Well, for one thing, if the Democrats said we had a war on caterpillars, and mainstream media outlet talked about the fact that Republicans have a war on caterpillars, then we have problems with caterpillars.  The fact of the matter is it’s a fiction and this started a war against the Vatican that this president pursued.  He still hasn’t answered Archbishop Dolan’s issues with Obama world and Obamacare, so I think that’s the first issue.” 

Reince Preibus, Chairman of the Republican National Committee, in response to a question from Al Hunt if the GOP is waging a war on women, as the Democratic National Committee has alleged.
