So yeah, I don't want the GOP defeated.Yeah, it's the Republicans who won't reach across the aisle. It's the Republicans who are dividing the country. It's the Republicans who won't be reasonable.
I want it immolated.
I want it razed to the foundation, reduced to a moonscape, left unlivable even for cockroaches, much less newts. I want it treated like boot heels treat ants and furnaces treat ice cubes, treated like a middle-school basketball team playing the '71-'72 Lakers.
Defeat is not enough. Let there be humiliation. Let there be pain.
As I've said 8 zillion times: Conservatives think liberals are wrong. Liberals think conservatives are evil. And that's why liberals are always so angry, so hostile, so violent--because those are the correct responses to evil. But when you think that half your fellow countrymen are evil, that doesn't bode well for the body politic.
