Apparently, during a moment of deep reflection while speaking at the Republican Governors Association on the GOP's recent election losses, Mississippi Governor Haley Barbour had a breathtaking--perhaps even divine--revelation.
Now before I write further here, I want to give you a shout out to swallow your coffee or other beverage of choice before moving over the orangewhateveritis below.
"The ground game is really important, and we have to be, I mean we've got to give our political organizational activity a very serious..." he said, taking a pause and looking for the right word. "Proctology exam. We need to look everywhere." [source]Have you stopped laughing yet?
Now I know what you are thinking. Believe me, I do.
Citing a need to reform their message and adapt to demographic changes, Barbour continued:
"We can catch up in four years doing this" he said. "This isn't rocket science, but it is hard work that we can't wait and start in 2016." [emphasis mine]That would be the longest proctology exam in history. Really. Long. But they are, after all, republicans so I suppose it may just take that long because, as we well know, first they have to get their heads out of their collective butts to begin with.
And I am glad that Barbour recognizes it isn't rocket science. I suspect NASA will be relieved at that finding. We shouldn't be confusing one black hole with another.
But(t) this is perhaps the most confusing part, at least for me:
The party needs a "brutally honest assessment of everything we did," he added. "We need to take everything apart and look at all of it."Barbour's statement seems to indicate they intend politically assisted suicide which I thought was illegal in most states. Watch out Washington and Oregon. And frankly, I'm not too keen on picturing them taking everything apart and looking at it all. It sounds more like something out of a bad horror flick if you ask me.
And as for knowing everything they did, well, you'll just have to trust me when I tell you that's probably just TMI. Between diapers and wide stances, I have a pretty good idea of what those guys do.
That is all.
