    This cartoon can be interpreted in many ways. I choose this version: A spine, so that the GOP finally will be able to stand up to the TEA-party, kick them out of their ranks and force them to stand on their own, with their own money, own influence, own voters, own ideology and own candidates. No more mixing with the GOP, “you are either with us or you are with the TEA-party”, as a clear message to the GOP voters. This is what i want for Christmas, because it would eliminate these RWNJs within weeks…

    Kind of like the Democrats wanting more and more money. Where is the Greed.

    The Tea Party does use its own money. It is not old enough to have that kind of influence.

    Curious – what do you call the left wing of the democrat party? You know, those who want to redefine marriage, disparage Christianity, rewrite the Western moral code, change the social contract between the citizen and the government, etc. You know, the radicals on your side. What name should we give them?

    “Kind of like the Democrats wanting more and more money.”

    Democrats and Republican Paul Ryan are trying to cut $60 billion from budget. In other words, less and less money. Cuts include automatic COLA for military pensions. Which Paul Ryan tries to justify Here.

    Other Republicans are opposed to this budget, of course. Want more and more money.

    I agree with that assessment, though it’s a problem of their own making (hate and fear-mongering, plus gerrymandering causing candidates to become increasingly vulnerable to right-wing crazies).
    In my opinion, Republicans, have plenty of self-righteous morality, hypocritical hubris, and PAC-obedient chutzpah in place of a patriotic (country first) spine.

    Just one more comment: it’s interesting to note that Ramirez, whose usual productions are borderline sedition anti-Obama cartoons that (arguably) elicit the most obnoxious troll-screeds (they love to roll around in the mud) of any artist on this site, has a back-handed rebuke of his darlings (those who do no wrong), the Republicans.
    Indeed, is Ramirez suggesting the G.O.P. is not crazy enough?

    Dumb(o) would do a lot better with some sense.

    Your knowledge of the history of the NAZI Party in Germany is most minimal at best. The NAZI’s were absolute ultra conservatives who hated anything even remotely progressive or liberal. They were also very pro military (as witness their eventual take over of just about all of Western Europe by direct military action). They hated all minorities. such as Jews and homosexuals, they hated communists and communism. The true idealistic form, not the form of the USSR (which was actually far more like them than true Communism). In fact, just like many of the more ultra of the ultra conservatives on this site, they hated just about everybody. They also would have hated the present president Obama just about as much as they hated the then president FDR. Quite probably the greatest president of the last century, along with his other name sake in Teddy Roosevelt. All you need to do to see this in our own ultra, ultra conservatives here is to see the same tone exhibited in their own writings, which I am sure MortyForTyrant knows far more than you do, and despises them just as much as I do!!

    @Gore Bane

    Only after an ultra conservative labeled a relative moderate liberal from Germany a NAZI first, or don’t you bother to read all of the posts on a thread before commenting?

    Thank you, I see where one such ultra conservative poster has already done just that. . Oh well, Merry Christmas and a Happy Holiday anyway!!

    Grass Roots Independent Pragmatists (G.R.I.P.) Party. About 30% of Republicans and 30% of Democrats and 75% of Independents would feel at home in this new political party. Based on recent voting patterns, the above combination would be a 51% majority in many districts.

    Civil, factual and certain to get attacked for that very reason.
    That got a for-real LOL out of me.

    The GOP already has a spine with two heads. The old Republicans trying to regain control from the fanatics and failing more than not.
    Beautiful art work by Ramirez.
