    I was just going to write a diary about the dearth of legislative accomplishments by the GOP. I was thinking about what would happen if Democrats had held the country hostage until a GOP president rolled back one the GOP's major legislative accomplishments. Then I realized that I could not think of any GOP legislative accomplishments. Seriously. There is NCLB, but that was bipartisan. Americans with Disabilities Act? Signed by 41 but they don't brag about it. So I Googled it. What I found was side splittingly hilarious. Ready for it? Here, from their own web page is their rich history:

    GOP history

    Abolition. Free speech. Women’s suffrage.
    The most recent thing they take credit for is women's suffrage, 1920. Seriously.

      They hate liberals and what liberalism stands for, but they cite acievements from periods when Republicans were very different and embraced liberal reformers. Self-hating, perhaps? Harkening back to what they were since what they are is so flimsy.

    •  Cruz & co. GOP platform: (0+ / 0-)

      Vote for me, I'll cut your taxes and stick an ultrasound probe up your vagina.

      Oh, Mister Cruz, you had me at "stick"!
