GOP Now Stands for Gullible, Obtuse, Pitiless

Our good friend Jerry over at Grumpy’s Grumblings has another post out. I’ve included a link at the end to continue reading on his site. Thanks Jerry!

For years I joked that our nation could solve our twin troubles of energy shortages and air pollution by making all our roads go downhill. Anytime I suggested my solution, people responded with that “Surely you aren’t serious” look. I’d then smile and shrug my shoulders, implying that I knew the suggestion was silly. We all knew it was a ridiculously simple—and unworkable—concept. And that’s what made it at least a little humorous.

I had to wonder—momentarily—if they were joking.

So, with GOP leaders across the nation now openly and with straight faces declaring that the solution to our nation’s epidemic of mass murders at public places is to eliminate all but one entrance to all such buildings, I had to wonder—momentarily—if they were joking. Sure, joking about such a horrible and painful phenomenon would be beyond tacky. Who would do or suggest such a thing?

Then I saw the video of former President Trump at the NRA convention, laughing and dancing shortly after announcing the names of the 19 students and two teachers murdered at Robb Elementary School. Tacky, tasteless, tawdry, crude, heartless, callous, degenerate, amoral. Ah, yes, all adjectives describing the Trumpist-controlled Republican Party, the GOP.

  1. The G could stand for so many words like gutless, greedy, grotesque. Since I am considered old, I wish the O did not relate to anything associated with me. And of course the P can stand for Pri@%ks.

      2. She is a walking case for the Old School paternalistic school to shake the dust off of their shoulders (and heads) sigh and say, gently…
        ‘See, that is what happens when you let women into politics,’
        It’s as if she was genetically created for that very purpose…..
        Hmm….there’s a satirical sf novel plot in there somewhere. 🤔

      3. Unfortunately, Roger, she will probably win her re-election bid in November. Which tells you everything you need to know about certain areas of our country.
