    GOP operative tells all… ugly!

    It is just as bad as we thought:

    You know the ‘gator roll’ tactic? That is when the ‘gator clamps his jaws on its prey and then flips around, rolling in such a manner as to completely disorient and fatally damage the hapless prey…

    Yes, this is the GOP in all of its sociopathic glory. They have succeeded in their goals, so far; they have given rise to the ‘tea party’, and their hateful rhetoric has led to the breakdown of many needed social institutions, such as unions and charitable organizations.

    It is ‘1984’ all over again, with newspeak in charge.

    If anyone’s interested, I take Victor Davis Hanson to task for the comments he makes in the post that Wombat links above.
