It’s a rare event when the political messages in my inbox make me laugh, but this one from the Washington State Democrats had me rolling:
On Monday on FOX News Dino Rossi was caught trying to trick Washington’s voters. You may have heard that Rossi and 27 other Republican candidates in our state will not allow the word “Republican” to appear next to their name on the ballot.
Thanks to the new Top Two primary, candidates can choose what party label they want on the ballot in November. As we reported on June 11th, Dino Rossi will have “Prefers G.O.P. party” next to his name, which is clearly a scheme to avoid having the word “Republican” next to his name.
Or as one of their candidates admits in this newscast:
“There’s 30 percent of the people in this state that would not vote for a Republican no matter what, and we want to get around that…”
Isn’t that precious? The Republicon label’s been dragged through so much sewage even life-long, die-hard Republicons are terrified of wearing it for fear the stench will give them away.
Rossi’s hoping that saying “Prefers GOP Party” will save his sorry ass from outraged voters. That’s great camoflage he’s got there – nice shades of hot pink and electric blue. Washington State voters are likely smart enough to realize that GOP stands for “Grand Old Party,” the Republicons’ fond nickname for themselves. And they’ll be getting a mighty good belly laugh over the “Prefers Grand Old Party Party” thing. This man is no more bright than the geniuses who named Table Mesa and Picacho Peak in Arizona.
What a raging dumbass. And what a delight, knowing that Republicons have allowed the neocons and theocons and downright cons contaminate them so badly they’re terrified to admit they’re Republicon at all.
Just remember, my darlings: a Republicon by any other name is a lying piece of shit.
