On Friday night’s first-of-the-season episode of Real Time with Bill Maher viewers learned from David Avella of GOPAC that President Obama had insulted Republican Members of Congress by what the President had called them.  And the term that offended Mr. Avella and that he found so insulting?  

It seems that (commonly labeled) socialist, Kenyan, Hitlerite President Obama had vilified members of the GOP by calling them the vicious term ‘right-wing’ Republicans.

In the snarky spirit of introspection, as all left-wingers are known to indulge in, why don’t we explore and vote on some possibly less extreme labels that might aptly describe the present state of the GOP and Republican Members of Congress.  These are the same Members of Congress that Americans, in a recent poll, found slightly  'less likeable’ than anal-warts and ‘as likeable’ as severe body odor.  But I digress.

Your opinion is important to us.  Please take part in the following poll to find a less vicious term or label that socialist, Kenyan, Hitlerite President Obama and the rest of us can use to describe those charming, dear and misunderstood folks across the aisle.     If you don’t find a suitable choice in the list, please add one in the Comments Section.


Today’s Republican Members of Congress and rank and file members of the GOP can best be described by the label:

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.
