Taking Back the Country Republican Style

with 6 comments

republican-and-proudI remember when my daughter was in first grade.  She ran out of school crying.  I asked her why and she told me that Poopy Head had called her a name.  Now, I knew some of the people in her class, but I had no idea who Poopy Head was.   It turns out it was a boy named Brett who had made fun of her.  She was so upset that she couldn’t call him by his name anymore so she started calling him Poopy Head.

I totally can relate.   Today, as a party we are stepping forward to do exactly the same thing.  In an email sent out to 168 RNC members on Wednesday, RNC committeeman James Bopp stated, “The proposed resolution acknowledges that and calls upon the Democrats to be truthful and honest with the American people by renaming themselves the Democrat Socialist Party.  Just as President Reagan’s identification of the Soviet Union as the ‘evil empire’ galvanized opposition to communism, we hope that the accurate depiction of the Democrats as a Socialist Party will galvanize opposition to their march to socialism.”

I think this idea has a lot of merit to it.   Don’t forget the Bush’s huge foreign policy success achieved by using the moniker Axis of Evil.  As any Captain and Tennille fan will tell you  a catchy name goes a very long way.   Look how well we did calling torture harsh interrogation.   The only problem is I wonder how many people even know what a socialist is anymore.   I think we may be better off calling them the Stinky Party or the Stupid Party.  Maybe the Stinky Stupids.  I definitely think that we should stop calling ourselves the Republicans.  Like Blackwater, when your reputation gets tarnished enough it may be time to change your name.  I really like the sound of the Guns and God Party.

  1. I tend to think of what’s left of the Republican Party as the American Taliban. I think it’ll stick if they use it.

  2. I suggested that name before. It does have a ring to it.

  3. Yeah, even some of the old Republicans started that.. so that should catch on pretty quickly… just start calling all of them the American Taliban and it will soon be just another terrorist organization…lol

  5. Now now, if you’re going to call us socialists then I am going to call the neo-cons fascists. When John Ashcroft gave a lecture at my college, I could see the steely glint of violence and mayhem in the twinkle of his eye. Or maybe it was a tear from all the heckling. I’ll never know for sure…
