“CONFIRMED: John Boehner holding secret meetings with Chuck Schumer to slip Amnesty for Illegals past the GOP base”
Establishment Republicans: we’re kinda like the Democrats, only our enemies actually register under our own party affiliation, if you can believe that. Ironic, eh?
Here, let me diagram this on my Very Official Looking GOP white board:
TEA Party Hobbits / Purists / True Believers / Ideological Visigoths = losing seats that might otherwise be held by more moderate Republicans. Plus, like, teabaggers. Gross, amiright?
So it follows: More seats held by moderate Republicans = House AND Senate control for the GOP.
Thus, House and Senate Control for the GOP + Compassionate center rightism = push for amnesty, No Child Left Behind, Medicare expansion, exploding debt, and corporate bailouts. Because sometimes you have to destroy the free market in order to save it.
-- None of which is all that appealing to the base of our Party, sure. But hell: we're in control!
Projected outcome: How bitchin' is that!
