Worster Yet: "It's Even Worse Than It Looks"
"One of the two major parties, the Republican Party, has become an insurgent outlier – ideologically extreme; contemptuous of the inherited social and economic policy regime; scornful of compromise; unpersuaded by conventional understanding of facts, evidence, and science; and dismissive of the legitimacy of its political opposition,"
In an interview promoting the book on NPR this morning , Orstein goes on to add: "... Republicans currently inside Congress, you have a new set of litmus tests and a new outlook that leads them in directions where you can't say that there is such a thing as climate change, you take positions on things like immigration that are simply off the rails, and if you compromise, you are basically defiling what the party stands for".
Couple this attitude with the insane and insipid Grover Norquist pledge that all the Republican toadies sign and you have the perfect recipe for disaster! WAKE THE F#@K UP AMERICA!! REPUBLICANS PULL YOUR HEADS OUT OF YOUR A$$ BECAUSE YOU ARE KILLING THIS COUNTRY!!
Whew! That really felt good.
