Which Of These GOP Actions Is More Imbecilic?

  1. Reminding women that a Republican administration may well drag them and their human and civil rights back to the 1950s,
  2. Attaching a GOP amendment to the transportation bill in the House that would allow uranium mining in the Grand Canyon, risking groundwater used by 25 million people along the Colorado River and tourism in the whole area, despite the fact that the last three congressmen who submitted similar legislation were not re-elected as a result,
  3. Both of the above?

I won’t insult your intelligence when the answer is so obvious.

    Definitely C! I can imagine the kickbacks from the Uranium mines must be better than a congressman’s pay!

      Shaun, every time I read about Republicans’ foolishness, I can’t help thinking of an old saying, only with the adjectives switched: “If you’re so rich, why ain’t you smart?”

      GOPers often have a kind of political cleverness. They are good at laundering money. They are good at stealing elections. They are good at disenfranchising “inconvenient” voters… seniors, racial minorities, etc. They are good at political blackmail, as this most recent session of Congress has shown. But as for any notion that they are somehow fooling voters, that went by the boards long ago. These days it seems they don’t even give a damn who knows that they’re bought and paid for. The only thing I can figure out is that they must have managed to rig the next several elections (possibly through e-voting machines) so that it doesn’t matter if citizens vote for them or not… or else they’re plotting an outright coup. It’s about the only explanation that makes sense.
