More On Brainwashed Republicans

Remember this post of mine yesterday about mayoral candidate Chad Novak’s stadium referendum flip-flops? Much-adored Dog Blog commentator Barb Saylor* suggested I should, and I quote, “Juxtapose [it] with your Republican nitwits post; it’ll be interesting.”

I’m not sure what (if anything) she was insinuating,  but if Barb was pointing out that Regina’s wackiest mayoral candidate is a million times less scary than the Tea Party lunatics in the U.S., I agree with her.

Case in point:

Someone fired a shot through one of the Obama campaign offices in Denver this afternoon, shattering the glass in one of the windows. No one was injured, according to a Denver Police Department spokeswoman. There are also no suspects as of this writing, and the crime at the 9th Avenue and Acoma field office remains under investigation.

So, to juxtapose for Barb: things are bad and scary in the United States. Things are loopy, amateurish and entertaining in Regina. And I’ll take a Chad Novak’s earnest goofiness, occasional weird paranoia and general, good-natured lust for attention over Tea Party racism, ignorance, xenophobia, class betrayal, firearm ownership and general misdirected rage anytime.

*No, I’m not being sarcastic. Barb shows up and speaks up, and I appreciate the hell out of her for it.

  1. On the positive side, can there possibly be any voter apathy in the US today?

    With all due respect to Mr. Novak, his campaign reminds me of the following song:
    First you say you do
    And then you don’t.
    Then you say you will
    And then you don’t.
    You’re undecided now,
    So what are you going to do?

  2. Barb also has the courage to sign her name to her comments, I’d point out. I only go partway there. ;-D

    But regardless, that’s something to admire in this day and age.

  3. The Boston “tea party” in 1773 made sense for the people then, & the movement eventually became the Republican Party.

    The party philosophy has been butchered to pieces by a way too perfect, ( churchy )biased ideal, for the country at large.

    Brainwashed may be a correct term. Can’t anybody down there see that MiRo,( think Nero), is just a really good used car salesman?
