The GOP Power Couple

If you want to gauge just what a pathetic joke of a party the GOP has turned itself into, then watch the video clip two posts below this one where Fox News anchor Carl Cameron discusses Sarah Palin's geographic illiteracy. Then watch the video clip immediately below this commentary in which "Joe the plumber" reveals that his entire accumulated knowledge of Marxist doctrine was derived by looking up the word "Socialism" in Websters Dictionary. Observe how the man who decries the redistribution of wealth justifies having spent a period of his life collecting welfare benefits. And marvel at the thought: these two individuals are currently the most popular figures in the Republican party. The GOP base is enormously excited and wants America to be governed and guided by these two individuals. It boggles the mind. It is, quite frankly, a frightening thought. (Video via Crooks and Liars)
