For me, last night brought awareness of a new low point in the dismal, embarrassing behavior of the rank and file of the Republican party in these fair Uuuuunited States. It was noticeably more depressing then usual because it was so tawdry and pathetic. No, not AP wire tapping. Not Benghazi.
I refer to umbrellagate.
First the idiot mouthbreathing knuckledraggers were delighting in the notion that Obama "had" to have someone else hold an umbrella over him. Complete with anecdata showing other Presidents holding their own umbrellas.
I concluded this morning that it is really rather remarkable, and a testament to basic American decency, that despite all their machinations the Republicans have not been able to produce the rampant, postapocalyptic movie fantasy USA that they seem to desire for some reason.
