Things aren't looking so great over on the Rethug aisle these days. Sarah Palin (R-Moron) and Michelle Bachmann (R-Batshit Crazy) are both supporting a non-Republican candidate in New York's special election to fill the vacant 23rd Congressional District seat.
I don't know what their boy, Conservative Party candidate Doug Hoffman, has going for him, but both wackjob Rethugs are putting their considerable weight behind him and not his opponent, Real Republican Dede Scozzafava.
And not content just to campaign for the upstart Hoffman, our Sarah goes out of her way to rip her former Rethug cronies:
Political parties must stand for something. When Republicans were in the wilderness in the late 1970s, Ronald Reagan knew that the doctrine of ‘blurring the lines’ between parties was not an appropriate way to win elections," she added, launching into an attack of the Republican Party.When Palin was followed immediately by Michelle "Me Too" Bachmann, it proved to be too much for me to stand without outright laughing.
"Unfortunately, the Republican Party today has decided to choose a candidate that more than blurs the lines, and there is no real difference between the Democrat and the Republican in this race. This is why Doug Hoffman is running on the Conservative Party's ticket," she wrote. "Republicans and conservatives around the country are sending an important message to the Republican establishment in their outstanding grassroots support for Doug Hoffman: no more politics as usual."
And so it begins. The self-immolation of the Republican Party. Let the bloodletting begin.
