I found this gem while perusing the Daily Kos earlier today. While I never expected to hear myself saying this, I might actually agree with a Republican on this one. But as they say, “your enemy’s enemy”…
Principles like smaller government…unless you want to marry someone you love or make a healthcare decision for yourself. Principles like education…unless your flagship university researches something other than creationism, it which case “Sue baby, Sue!” And principles like democracy…unless you’re trying to be a sane Republican, in which case you are to be tarred, feathered, and primaried out-of-office.
“If not, maybe the opinion of other Republicans will resonate. Here’s a good one: “They’re (the Tea Party) a leaderless, utterly unintelligible, and completely schizophrenic movement. If that’s not too insulting to the term. Movement, that is.”
And here’s another, ” If Chicken Little had a bastard child with Jerry Falwell, they would call it a Tea Party Patriot.”
