The Face

This is the face of the 2008 Republican Party.

Not reason. Not ideology. Simple, scummy, hate speech. You know, Hitler style.

The fact that Former Gov. Mitt Romney has welcomed this endorsement, introduced this speaker, and did not immediately distance himself from this individual, says all you need to know about his character.

This will catch up to him, and this will burn him. He thinks he is enjoying momentum. He will be toast.

We've got an ideology of privatization that led to horrific abuses of the very troops that Party always claims to support more than the Democrats -- yes, a Halliburton-related crony deal that sold out our injured soldiers and vets.

We've got a U.S. Attorney General who appears caught in a lie to Congress regarding politically motivated firings of some of our best and most principled government attorneys, a scandal that now threatens to destroy the GOP Senator and the GOP Congresswoman who helped initiate it.

We've got a war out of control and everybody knows it, but somehow their Party still hasn't been held accountable.

I guess the best defense is a good offense. And a vicious, lowest common denominator, shameless appeal to the most brutal and repressed base instincts and fear, is the essential earmark of fascism.

Their face. I don't see any of them denying it. Certainly not Mitt.
