    Most political cartoonists have their leanings, but try, maybe 40% of the time, to portray the other side in an attempt at some measure of fairness. Better than most other aspects of the media.

    Actually – I say do it!!!!

    As sick as I am of Democrats trying to rob the industrious to pay for the needs and wants of the indolent.

    I am even more sick of Republicans trying to Rob us of our liberties and freedoms.

    The Republican party has really become one of Religious Zealots and anti-intellectuals. The war on women continues to turn off middle of the road voters and the wars on Drugs and the middle east have been disasterously expensive and unneccessary.

    We need a Rand Paul to step up and domesticate the idiocy that has become mainstream Republicans.

    The more intelligent right-wingers (like Gorrell) realise that the GOP seems to be trying to make itself totally unelectable by first, somehow alienating almost all Hispanics (even though Obama has deported more Hispanics per annum than any other president), and then alienating everyone else by shutting down the government (when Clinton vetoed the Republican bill to keep government going in ‘97, voters blamed the Republicans in the ’98 election).


    Lots of conservatives look at current demographics, and see no way to retake the Senate and the White House without changing their message.


    Meanwhile, the Obamabots and left-wingers are hoping that the Republican leadership won’t figure that out. Ever.

    Good read on the Health Care Act. Also below it an article on the Medicare “Donut Hole”.

    The Republicans have put themselves in a no win situation. Everyone knew the Democrats would keep trying to get us to a single payer system and Republicans did nothing.
    Being able to pay for Obamacare was based on a 9% annual growth in the economy, a farce which Republicans failed to even touch during the last campaign.
    Lastly, if the government shuts down Republicans will shoulder the blame, just like they did in the nineties – even though we were to find out later that it was actually the result of a negotiation between Clinton and tthe government workers’ union.

    Gorrell is correct. He’s a very conservative cartoonist, but knows (correctly) that this argument is a disaster for his side. Abraham Lincoln had exactly the same problem with Southern conservatives. He compared it to a robber who has you at gun point. “Give me all your money. If you refuse, I’ll have to shoot you, and then you’ll be guilty of murder!”

    @ Mephistopheles and Michaelwme:

    Thank you. Everyone on this site should be required to read your posts, more than once if they don’t get it the first time.

    Newt lost his Speaker-ship over that idiocy.
    Please, please, please do it again!

    Why would a government shutdown be a bad thing for the GOP? Or us? I’d say it’s a win-win…

    The GOP leaders are apoplectic over Mike Lee’s proposal. The GOP doused itself in volatile liquid and now wants to strike a match. What an acervus.

    The real problem is that even if he pulls the trigger, there’s nothing left there to damage.

    Yeah, that would be great, IF THEY REALLY INVESTED IN JOBS PROGRAMS AND PUBLIC INFRASTRUCTURE!
    But we all know what happened with the one trillion dollar TARP bill… And the same thing will happen with this one…
