This Crappy Hour, the HuffPo's Jason Linkins and I torture one another with Lou Dobbs slashfic, make tortured confessions to the sounds of Barney the Dinosaur, and discuss GOP career suicides related to the Obama birther movement.
Every time I see another GOP-er pandering to the wing-nut crazypants electorate in this country, I can't help but think what the fuck are they thinking? Is the white, crazypants racist electorate in this country really that big? Are they really that important? Color me naive, but I get the impression that this specific group is pretty small and best left to be ignored. The GOP lost a large chunk of their independents last election cycle. I hope they don't wonder where they went.
Priorities: the GOP has none.
