You know... It's amazing; the first whiff of...

See here's the deal: the modern Republican party has become the party of the expedient knife in the back, the party of lies, the party of the billion-dollar smash-and-grab, the party of hypocritical depravity, the party of torture, the party of blood-soaked money and callous disregard for humanity and the Earth.
They're morally bankrupt and it eats at them. That's why they get so upset. Deep down they know their hearts are black and they'd sell their own country and neighbors down the river for a second car and a swimming pool. They know they ripped off the election and got away with it and they're frightened of losing their grip on power.

Update: Apparently, and this hasn't seen a lot of coverage in light of the present circumstances, but KARL ROVE WAS FIRED BY BUSH SR. FOR LEAKING TO ROBERT NOVAK BEFORE!!!
