Patriotism (the Republican way)

At this point I have no idea what those who represent the GOP on the national stage are smoking. Not only have they proposed a Taliban-like opposition to the current administration; used fear mongering, while purposely lying about corruption and district gerrymandering, which in fact they recently perpetrated while in power (see Tom DeLay); and both blatantly and selfishly opposed the president's economic stimulus package for political gain, in direct contradiction to the best interests of their constituents (see California), now some of them are actually taking credit for the immediate benefits of the bill they were so steadfastly against. WTF?!

And then, it gets surreal:

So you don't subscribe to Rush Limbaugh's "I hope he fails" school of thought?

That was a terrible thing to say. I mean, he's the president of all the country. If he succeeds, the country succeeds. And if he doesn't, it hurts us all. Anybody who would pull against our president is not exactly thinking rationally.

And who, exactly, said that? Pat Robertson. Yes, Pat Robertson.

Folks, you know it has gotten completely out of hand when that well-known, lily-livered, pinko-commie, liberal apologist, progressive, the Rev. Pat Robertson, calls out notorious blow hard and current GOP messiah Rush Limbaugh. These are some evil people. And the true embodiment of why the word "politician" is seen as the most biting of epithets in the eyes of many.

It's almost worth buying a four year supply of popcorn just to watch in amazement the massive train wreck these people have become. Lord help us.
