Back in the day, America used to have international allies (and enemies, too, to be sure).
Well, in the time after the time of Bush (see below, for a defense of this awkward phrase), we have advanced beyond that. Now the Democratic party has international allies. Leftist ones, naturally (given the Nazi-Communist leanings of our leader), and very powerful ones, evidently:
RNC chair Michael Steele has wasted no time sending out fundraising letters to bash what he called the “Nobel Prize for Awesomeness.” He said Republicans should be alarmed because the honor shows how “the Democrats and their international leftist allies want America made subservient to the agenda of global redistribution and control. And truly patriotic Americans like you and our Republican Party are the only thing standing in their way.”
Of course, the Republican party recognized this alarming trend well before the Nobel Peace Price brouhaha (or, the way it was looking all day yesterday, it probably rates a few extra syllables at the end: brouhaha-ha-ha-ha). Although late out of the starting gates — and despite their leadership vacuum, which has resulted in too many fools rushing in — the Republic Party has been busying itself forging international alliances too. And doing quite well, we must add.
Back to that awkward construction: “in the time after the time of Bush”.
Well, what would you say instead, given the fools-have-rushed-into-the-leadership-vacuum situation which characterizes the Republican party? In the time of Glenn Beck and John Boehner and Rush Limbaugh and Michael Steele and Jim DeMint and Michele Bachman and Mitch McConnell and Sarah Palin?
It is abundantly clear that Republicans are already well past the point where future historians are going to say that the whole fucking party went totally apeshit. And, yet, these guys still look like they are just getting started.
