Republican Party Pretzel Logic 101

Monday, August 09, 2010

I hope they hand out dictionaries at the Republican National Convention when it convenes in Tampa, FL in 2012. They will surely need them to look up "poetic irony" once they figure out Ybor City is within walking distance of the hall. As the Florida GOP tries to court the Cuban-American vote while at the same time some of their noted national leaders are calling for a "review" of the 14th Amendment it will no doubt make for an interesting dance for four days. The real comedy though will begin as we watch the GOP try to give the Tea Party base a lap dance whose favorite derogatory and racist term "anchor babies" will be the 'buzz' and rage of the convention as these immigration reductionists call for action on one of their pet issues amidst Tampa's famous Corona factories. Now that I've brought it up I can't recall GOP Senate candidate and Tea Party darling Marco Rubio even mentioning the 14th Amendment considering his ethnic background. Wonder what brand of cigar John Boehner smokes....Speaking of the Tea Party it will be odd watching them embrace former Lt. Col. Allen West. Since they rely almost entirely on Fox News for their "information" I wonder how many of them even know what West's ethnic background is. The African American Congressional candidate will no doubt take advantage of the 2012 GOP National Convention in his run to unseat Congressman Ron Klein since he will stand out like a sore thumb amid the nearly all white fraternity that seems to characterize their quadrennial dog & pony show. I'm sure the GOP leadership will try to make him a permanent fixture on the podium to demonstrate their "big tent" bona fides....The Orlando Sentinel's gubernatorial endorsements have come out and the non-surprise factor is an understatement. Their endorsement of State CFO Alex Sink, the Democratic Party candidate, is the de facto choice here with her lack of serious opposition and was expected. I'm not sure the Orlando Sentinel had much choice in their endorsement of Florida Attorney General Bill McCullom, the Republican Party candidate, over Republican Rick Scott in that primary seeing they were one of the leading newspapers in Florida helping expose Scott's Columbia HCA medicaid and medicare scam practices which earned a whopping $1.7 billion dollar fine. Scott's a typical Republican huckster who hates "big gubmint" but sures likes how that taxpayer money that fuels it feels in his pocket....Early voting has already started here in the Sunshine State in our closed primaries. With Florida's more than 13 million registered voters that means 2 million of them will have to sit this out as they are registered as 'Independent.' There's no doubt of their clout in the general though as both sides pull out the stops to court them....and finally poor ol' Illinois transplant, attorney and Republican State Senate candidate Mike Lameyer laments in the Ft. Myers News-Press "There is no reason for the jobless activity in the state of Florida." Well, Mike, I can think of four very, very big ones: (1) two terms of Jeb Bush & (2) his slacker brother; (3) Charlie Crist; and (4) GOP control over both state houses of government for the same entire period just mentioned. How's that? I hope that helped and you can call on me anytime here at Truman's Conscience if you need anymore assistance.
