Better Dead Than Red....
So just how repellant has the Republican Party become to Americans?
Although it hasn't been getting much media play, the POP has become so despised that people would rather elect a dead candidate than leave even an incumbent neocon in office.
And it isn't the first time either. Former attorney general and madman-at-large John Ashcroft famously was humiliatingly defeated in his bid for a Senate seat by a corpse. Apparently people assumed a dead man would wreak less havok upon his constituency than a contemporary right-winger.
Oh, and as a footnote to all you "Centrist Democrats" citing Raygun as an example of the "golden age of conservatism": please just shut the Hell up. The man was an arrogant, opportunistic, smug, ammoral buffoon who betrayed the very fundamental principles of conservatism.
Quote of the Day:
"When the truth is found to be lies
And all the joy within you dies
Don't you want somebody to love?"
