Gutless. Just one of many adjectives that come to mind as I think of the GOP. Today, the term most definitely applies to GOP Senators. Other adjectives that come to mind? Selfish. Corrupt. Greedy. Myopic. Or, let’s just call it like it is…they’re just plain evil.
Today, a GOP Senate filibuster managed to derail a rather straightforward and sensible bill that would expand background checks for gun owners. Just a few months removed from Newtown…just a few months removed from over 20 CHILDREN being gunned down by a nut armed to the teeth…our beloved GOP Senators decided that their next election was more important than the safety of our nation’s children. Our gutless, piece-of-shit GOP Senators decided that getting that next campaign check was more important than barring criminals or the mentally ill from obtaining weapons.
Mitch McConnell, KING of the gutless, tiny-penis, evil piece-of-shit GOP Senators, has REFUSED to even meet with the families from Newtown. What’s wrong, Mitch? Having a little trouble sleeping at night? Having a hard time dealing with the fact that you are helping to ENABLE the slaughter of children?
No…wait. That’s giving these pieces of shit WAY too much credit. It’s PAINFULLY obvious that basic morality and a normal conscience aren’t what get you to Washington. What gets you to Washington is the single-minded focus on that campaign check. What gets you to Washington is placing your OWN status and power above the well-being of your constituents. What gets you to Washington is NOT worrying about the consequences of your actions, as long as the ultimate goal…your next re-election…is obtained.
Gutless? Yes. But perhaps evil is indeed a better choice of adjective.
