The GOP needs a new moniker. Perhaps in smoke-filled rooms they voted for my favorite new name:White Bull Elephant Party.

Besides being as useless as a "white elephant" they are full of bull animals and bull output.

Today Chris Matthews pointed out the gang of white males chosen by Republicans to head Congressional committees.

Rachel Maddow and others have pointed out the usefulness of dissing Susan Rice strenuously for the possible appointment to Secretary of State: it makes room for John Kerry at the top of the short list which would also knock a Democrat out of the Senate, weakening the party majority and opening the door for lame duck Scott Brown to run for re-election to the Senate if he won Kerry's vacant seat.

Republicans like to make trouble and noise over nothing, and Susan Rice is being attacked for several strategic reasons, first she is black, female, and President Obama's appointee, and second, she is not a sitting senator that could leave a lovely hole if awarded Secretary of State.

The White Bull Elephant Party is happy with their niche, and determined to wreck the agenda of the Obama administration.

Don't bother arguing with them, they only enjoy trampling those who stand in their way.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

    headlines I ever read appeared in Baron's.

    NCR changes its name to NCR.
    The story was how the National Cash Register company was changing its name to simply be NCR. Face it, cash registers were not a growth industry in 1990.

    The GOP can do the same. How many people really care they were once the "Grand Old Party". Just keep the name GOP and remove any meaning from it. A party without meaning, that describes the GOP pretty well, don't you agree?

    To me progress is not so much a goal as it is a process and I believe it will not follow a straight course. Remember, the drops of water that form the river may not take the shortest path but they will still reach the ocean.

  •  The Glop Plop Party perhaps? (0+ / 0-)

    Glopping and plopping sounds more humiliating and more subversive perhaps.

    The rage and strength of a large bull elephant is too positive an image for a worthless gloppy-ploppy-poo pie of an entity it has become.
