Republican Platform? Ideas? “Our Little Secret”
I seem to remember an era when political candidates would try to win over the voters by debating the current issues. Candidate A would say “we should do this,” and Candidate B would say “no, we should do that.” The candidates would present their views as articulately as they could, and the voters would elect the candidate who best communicated his/her ideas.
Wasn’t it like that? Or did I just dream that up?
Since January 2009, the Republican Party hasn’t offered one single original idea. No solutions, no alternatives — Nothing. Just forty-one filibustering blobs of protoplasm that add up to a human speed bump. Or a human slag heap; or something.
Now it turns out, if the GOP actually did have a plan, it would be dangerous to announce that plan to the public because the Democrats could use it against them in the November election.

OK, try this at your next job interview: Tell your prospective employer, “I’m not going to answer any questions, because if I did, you might decide I’m not qualified and somebody else would get the job.”
Or how about this devastating pickup line: “I’m not going to tell you anything about what I do for a living, how much money I make, nothing about past relationships, kids, ex-spouses, whether I’ve ever been convicted of a felony. So, wanna go to my place?”
And now — what’s all this liberal claptrap about racism in Arizona? Those damn liberals with their race card.
