"Republicans Begin to Cannibalize Their Own"

Let's all celebrate the feast!


The Progressive Daily Beacon: "Republicans Begin to Cannibalize Their Own":

A. Alexander, June 22nd, 2007

They're called cannibals for a reason. They eat people. And, so it would seem, when they're hungry they eat their own.

At least that is what is happening in the Republican Party. And, of course, by now everyone knows 'Republican' is synonymous with 'cannibal.' Okay fine, in fairness to Republicans they don't literally eat their own, at least it hasn't been officially documented; but of late and in a very real, albeit only in the political sense, they've taken to consuming the flesh of their fellows.

It wasn't that long ago, just last week, that every Jack Abramoff bought-n-paid-for Republican was salivating like a Pavlovian dog awaiting to make an appearance on one of the radical right-wing's many radio propagandist programs. Inside-the-beltway Republican politicians had even taken to commandeering nonsensical lines and policy positions that were created or advocated by the most nutty and extreme among the radio propagandists.

For all intents and purposes, it appeared to be an electoral match made in heaven.

Then, in 2006, the Republicans were routed from Congressional control and the party and became about as popular as Dick Cheney's lesbian daughter at an evangelical revival.
