GOP Gone Wild

27 February 2009

For any bleeding-heart liberals who don’t have time to sift through the New York Times editorials looking for fodder and/or ammo, I give you Paul Jenkins’ Worst Week Ever: Republicans Unhinged.

Sort of a liberal multivitamin.

Say what you will about nobler, issue-oriented journalism. At the end of a long week, this was thoroughly enjoyable. Among other things, Jenkins criticizes

  • Alabama Senator Richard Shelby, who “has not seen any birth certificate” confirming that Obama is American
  • Mitt Romney, who spent $100 million on a “creepy presidential campaign” and “this week decided to come to the financial rescue of embattled Republicans who are ‘standing up for fiscal responsibility and saying no to spending abuse’….that’s right, the man who spent $400,000 per delegate in the Republican primary is proudly lecturing others about fiscal responsibility.”
  • Bobby Jindal, but we knew that.
  • RNC leader Michael Steele, who unified viewers of all political persuasions in weird-outed-ness over his comment to FoxNews (on possibly withdrawing funds from GOP Senators who supported the stimulus bill):  “Oh, yes, I’m always open to everything, baby, absolutely.” Eeeeek.

Continuing in the spirit of just doin’ it for the LOLS: In this clip, Jack McBrayer (who plays Kenneth on 30 Rock) responds on “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon” to the aforementioned comparison between his character and Jindal.
