"Well, if I had to choose in terms of being a Republican, I'd go with Rush Limbaugh, I think,"..." I think my take on it was Colin had already left the party. I didn't know he was still a Republican."
That was the devil himself disguised as an old white man named Dick Cheney. He was telling CBS News and anyone who would listen that he would rather have a fat drug addicted [alleged]pedophile in his party, than a genuine "American hero", Colin Powell. Wow!
Now I am no political expert by any stretch of the imagination, but I am guessing that if you asked most A-murder-cans who they would trust more to be their leader, they would say the good general and not anyone from the new "axis of evil"; Cheney,Rush, and Newt. Just a thought.
But I knew the marriage couldn't last. I always thought that my homie, Colin, was too decent to be associated with the party of Lincoln. He has disappointed me along the way and left me scratching my head at times (like when he went in front of the world and announced that Saddam had WMD's), but at some point any human being with even an ounce of decency has to realize who these people are and what they really stand for. What they stand for is themselves and their own selfish interests. They are all about power and how to keep it, and damn everyone and everything else. It's why Rush has no problem making fun of people losing their jobs--even people who work for his own company---on his show while he pockets millions of dollars. It's why Dick Cheney will not lose a minutes sleep, even though, thanks to him, over 4,000 will never wake from theirs. It's why Newt Gingrich had no problem divorcing a dying wife as he kicked the tires on his new model. (What is he on now? Number three?) For the record, Powell has been married to the same woman since 1962.
But Powell represents a bigger problem for the folks in the republican party: They are fighting more and more among themselves with each passing day and they can't decide if they should move to the center, become more moderate, and try to be relevant again. Or, if they should move farther to the right and become extinct.
"The Republican Party is in “deep trouble” because it is “getting smaller” and being led by far right polarizing figures... Rush Limbaugh “diminishes the party and intrudes or inserts into our public life a kind of nastiness that we would be better to do without.”
"Well, if I had to choose — in terms of being a Republican — I’d go with Rush Limbaugh, I think. My take on it was that Colin had already left the party. I didn’t know he was still a Republican."
Hey, way to go there Dick; "stand by your man". Even if he is a lying self centered drug addicted one. Let's just hope, for his sake, that he doesn't like hunting.
