Just this year alone, we've had Republicans fight tooth and nail to:
  • protect unpopular tax breaks for the rich,
  • block popular disaster relief to hurricane ravaged New Jersey and New York,
  • continue wasting millions to defend anti-gay laws in the courts,
  • destroy the nation's economy by threatening to block the raising of the debt ceiling, and
  • stand in the way of popular gun safety reforms.

Have they surrendered trying to win elections? They are dicks and don't care that people think that they are dicks. They are proud of their dicktitude. They are flaunting it. Those who aren't big enough dicks lose primary elections to bona fide dicks. (Dick Lugar learned that lesson in 2012, Saxby Chambliss will learn it next year.)

They know people don't agree with them, and they just don't care anymore. It's bizarre, and it'll make for a crazy two years, to be sure. But in 2014 we stick them in the minority they truly deserve.

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.
