I think it was CNN that reported last week how the Republicans were excited to showcase the oft-forgotten diversity of their party.Â Excuse me while I laugh uncontrollably.Â Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha!Â Oh, man!Â Heh, heh, he he he. . . diversity!Â Ha ha ha!Â LetÂ’s just take a look at some of those various kinds of Republicans (right click to see full-size image):
Now of course, they donÂ’t have to have a certain percentage of blacks, women, or people under the age of 60, but this is just one example of how the Republicans weÂ’re trying to make themselves look hip to the rest of America.Â There werenÂ’t any diverse rows of Republicans, or any handmade Â“hockey momÂ” signs , or any Iraq veterans who would like to end their service with Â“honorÂ” rather than their own lives .
The Republican National Convention was a play.Â Act One: Always Put Country First.Â Act Two: Only Republicans Put Country First.Â Act Three: Only Republicans Can Change the Unholy Mess the Republicans Created.Â Curtains close.Â I throw up.
Even more unnerving than McBushÂ’s yellow teeth or Tina FeyÂ’s diatribe against community organizers, however, was the fact that they stole ObamaÂ’s whole theme of change.Â They tried to assure us that John Maverick and Saracuda Palin were going to Â“shake upÂ” Washington.Â As if they hadnÂ’t been in control all along.Â As if they disagreed with the President 90% of the time.Â As if weÂ’re idiots.
If giving tax breaks to major corporations, continuing to occupy a country that doesnÂ’t want us there anymore, denying basic civil rights to all Americans, putting the education of children in the hands of private schools, sending more jobs overseas, and drilling for oil while waiting for alternative energy sources to magically appear is change, then IÂ’m Ann Coulter.
And IÂ’m not Ann Coulter.
