John Boehner should be the biggest advocate of gun control in Washington, D.C. if for no other reason than to prevent members of his own caucus from shooting themselves in the foot. Most recent example: Representative Steve King of Iowa whose opposition to any kind of amnesty for immigrant children rests on his undocumented knowledge that, “For every one who’s a valedictorian, there’s another 100 out there who weigh 130 pounds and they’ve got calves the size of cantaloupes because they’re hauling 75 pounds of marijuana across the desert.”
We know the GOP does not believe in science. Include under that heading demographics. No matter what the statisticians tell them about the changing face of the U.S. population, they refuse to believe that Demography is Destiny. Somehow, more older white males will materialize at the polls even as their numbers dwindle in the general population. Perhaps they know something we don’t know. Check the cemeteries. In the future, you might need an ID to vote but not a pulse.
In addition to insulting every Latino in America, the GOP also continues to wage war against women’s reproductive rights (see Texas). Note to Republican candidates: You can’t grab them by the hair, drag them to the polls and make them vote for you.
Keep the racist and sexist comments coming, and soon the GOP will be small enough to drown in a bathtub.
