Meanwhile, a live mic picked up Rand Paul and Mitch McConnell talking to each other candidly about strategy in the government shutdown fight. Rand says that he doesn’t think that Democrats “poll tested” their use of the phrase “we won’t negotiate.” That’s right, Rand—not everybody has to poll test the things they say because most people wouldn’t otherwise be saying things that horrify people. Rand relies on poll-tested phrases because he learned long ago that if he just says what he’s really thinking then nobody would vote for him—even in Kentucky!
Storms are bearing down on the US, as government meteorologists have been sent home due to the shutdown. It’s like a perfect storm of Republican stupidity.
The lack of meteorologists is no problem to the Republican base. They just think “Meteorologists? Hell, we ain’t gonna get hit by no meteors.”
Along with shutting down the government, I think the Republicans have shut down whatever brains they had left. With that in mind, they should probably shut their mouths down too. Alex Jones was calling the car chase/shooting death incident in DC a “false flag” operation even while it was still ongoing! Everything is a false flag to Alex. Does he even think that real flags exist?
Glenn Beck says that Obama’s next move after shutting down the national monuments is going to be mass killings of millions of people. Then maybe the House Republicans should pass a CR. It will foil Obama’s diabolical plot and save millions of lives.
Republican Congressman Todd Rokita was having a back and forth with CNN anchor Carol Costello when he suddenly seemed to want to make it into a whole another kind of back and forth. Rokita said “Carol, you’re beautiful but you need to be honest as well.” I’ve heard of Republican talking points. What is this, some kind of creepy Republican sweet-talking points? I hope that occurred close to the end of Carol Costello’s show, because I bet she felt that she needed to take a shower as soon as possible.
