      Back in the early days of his career, he had a German-born secretary - as he chased her around the office, she was always shouting:

      Wowie!  OUT with the Palin, out with the Morris, and a couple of other douches, and slap in the Herminator, the public face of marital infidelity, arrogance and self-love, stupid slogans and stupid policy suggestions!

      Wow.  We couldn't pay them to be any dumber, could we?

        Regardless of the swift dispatch of Rommunism, one would have to be looking at them with rose colored glasses to think there is any sort of 'reboot' going on.

         Same old message, now delivered by 'rising stars' in an attempt to give the illusion of change, same old actions, now with fresh, new obstructive behaviour.
        Voters tired of certain loonytoons --- no problem. The depth of the crazy in the GOP ensures that there is always a new crazy to put forth -- either in the Senate or the media.

         The best view of the hope for any 'reboot' is the one out in the NY Times mag this week. Read that and think there is any, or will be, any change in the GOP. All evidence points to them beginning, once they tire of old meat, to dine on their young. And their future.

         The Grasping Old Powermongers don't think anything is wrong at all.

          they're so desperate for new stars that they're calling them up from the minors way too soon.  The next best hope should modestly decline the honour and suggest his/her worst enemy instead.

            has been called up...which means a whole lot of booted balls concurrant with learning how to hit big league pitching.....somethinng that at least 99% of ball players fail to do......I wouldn't expect better results from a junior senator.

        The core of the conservative Republican Party appears to be powerful, rich and manipulative.

        The mass to be manipulated tends to be mostly religious or uneducated. How do you manipulate that mass? Put others just like them in the media and feed those simpletons a line of BS. Herman Cain and Sarah Palin are examples, but for the most part their BS fails in practice.

        Pushing a failing plan is a prescription for a failed politician, so they won't last too long. So you quickly bring in new faces. But you will notice that Roger Ailes and Rupert Murdoch are not moving on. They get new faces to mouth the old, failed BS.

        Consider the new Texas Senator, Joe McCarthy Ted Cruz.

        it's important that Fox News demonstrate that stupidity is truly color blind!

        you can't have the loser from two election cycles be your star commentator when you have a set of shinier and newer election cycle losers to choose from.
