  •   I call them "Anti-Democrats" now-a-days (6+ / 0-)

    Because they don't pursue policies that could be considered conservative or Republican.  The policies that they have been pursuing for the last decade or so (but really, longer than that) have been simply anti-Democratic.  If the Democrats are for it, they're against it.  No matter what it is.  

    They aren't Republicans.  They're anti-Democrats.

    My style is impetuous.
    My defense is impregnable.
    YOU'RE NOT ALEXANDER!

    •  Well I call them Repukes for a similar (0+ / 0-)

      reason. Everytime I hear about their latest crazy idea I want to vomit.

      In the not-to-distant future the GOP is going to be condemned by young voters for screwing their futures through failure to regulate greenhouse gas emissions.  It will be comparable to the hold that the Dems had on people after FDR's reforms.  Factor in that 85% of population growth in the US is among non-whites and it is evident that the GOP's days as a viable party are numbered.

      The issue is really how much more damage they can do before the truth becomes readily apparent.

      The scientific uncertainty doesn't mean that climate change isn't actually happening.

          the intelligence of the american public.

          at least 1/2 the people in this country think that climate change is not true and that higher energy prices are not worth the cost of doing anything about it.

          we slide incrementally into the void...

          •  Actually no (0+ / 0-)

            Actually a majority continues to believe global warming is happening, although it has declined some since the disinformation campaign by the Koches and their allies.
