Say what you will about Australia, sometimes I am so damned glad I live here.

That just...that's just MESSED. Plain and simpe, it's WRONG.
$&#% him and $&#% any kind of twisted rationale he comes up with for this, it's simply BAD.
Shame, sir, shame.
Life is like a roller coaster. It has its ups and downs, but if you sit back and relax you get a heck of a ride.
You can say fuck here.
Anyway, fuck that guy.
The face of the Republican party.
I just....I can't even...WHAT? I mean, just.....no. I have no words.
Personally, I love that Republican candidates, office holders, and commentators have been spending these last months re-branding the party.
I mean, They'll be incredibly effective when people go to the polls, see "Republican" and immediately think things like:
"forced trans-vaginal ultrasound"
"single parents are committing child abuse"
"JFK makes me want to puke"
Look. In a national election, or even a state-wide one for Senate in many states, there are certain elements of the electorate that already spoken for. There's a small percentage who vote either Republican or Democratic, no matter the platform or the candidate. Those votes can be counted years before the election. Those are not the votes you need to win.
The votes you need are the suburban mother who lives outside of Philadelphia and works hard, and considers herself an independent. The votes you need are the unemployed auto-worker in Macomb County, Michigan who's an independent. You need that Latino voter in Florida who is socially conservative but doesn't appreciate the war on Hispanics.
The hardcore votes are the ones you've won already. It's these other guys and gals in the electorate that you need.
For months now, but especially for the last month to month and a half, the Republican Party has done everything in their power to make sure that none of these people -- the very people they absolutely need -- will vote for them.
I would wish that it would continue, but for the fact that I'm already sure it will.
The Democrats have all sorts of issues themselves. But the Republicans have been taken over by the most ridiculous lunatic fringe I've ever seen. And they are not only ridiculous, they are TERRIBLE at politics.
Okay, at first glance at the threat title I thought maybe this guy was doing this as a kind of protest thing -- like those Democrats who sponsored bills and riders to bills for things like men to have prostate exams before they could get Viagra or the 'Every sperm is sacred' bills... you know the stuff that's intentionally supposed to be not taken seriously in order to make a point.
If he had it would have still been kind of DUMB but I could have accepted that this was his way of trying to make a point.
But then I read the article and from the sounds of it.... it isn't a 'deliberately stupid to make a point' kind of thing... he seems to be serious!
That's douchebaggery of the the highest order.
Let's see.... what't that thing internet reviewer Nash Bozard does?..... Oh. Yeah......
