A GOP “Pissy Fit” Over Hillary Clinton

“Pissy Fit:” The Republican National Committee’s refusal to sanction any GOP debates sponsored by NBC and CNN.

This is not a “Hissy Fit,” that is the tea party continuing to attempt to kill Obamacare.

Why? Because CNN and NBC are working on specials about the most influential woman on the planet, most likely the most influential since Margaret Thatcher. Welcome the life story of Hillary Clinton.

The GOP cannot stand anything Clinton and the tea partiers cannot stand anything associated with the Obama administration, so combining the two was a no brainer. (Get the thinly veiled reference here?  Hehehehehe)

The GOP wants to control the election process through Gerrymandering, through Voter ID laws, through disenfranchising young potential voters and the poor. Now they want to control the debates we have all come to loath anyway.  

Wait a minute, this may not be such a bad thing here. Instead of 400 debates between Republic candidates, maybe that number will drop to 237. Instead of seven presidential debates, maybe just one. Oh, think of the horrors that would befall the broadcasters NBC and CNN.

The resolution reads, in part:

  • RESOLVED, that the Republican National Committee calls on CNN and NBC to cancel the airing of these political ads masked as unbiased entertainment; and, be it further
  • RESOLVED, that if CNN and NBC continue to move forward with (the Hilary Clinton documentaries) and other such programming, the Republican National Committee will neither partner with these networks in the 2016 presidential primary debates nor sanction any primary debates they sponsor, and, be it finally
  • RESOLVED, that the Republican National Committee shall endeavor to bring more order to the primary debates and ensure a reasonable number of debates, appropriate moderators and debate partners are chosen, and that other issues pertaining to the general nature of such debates are addressed.

And be it resolved that if you do not play by GOP rules, they just won’t play.  Silly elephants, the tricks are on them, they have just given Hillary a lot of free and positive press. 

If the RNC fails to participate and continues to threaten anyone and everyone who opposes their fascist propaganda maybe, just maybe, everyone will finally see how anti-American they truly are.

The GOP wants Freedom of Speech to be measured in terms of how much money one makes.

The GOP wants the “Establishment Clause” excluded from the Constitution”

The GOP wants the Fourth Estates to shut up and sit back while they are being raped through legislation and resolution.

It is a good thing that NBC and CNN have the ability to thumb their noses and provide a most pleasant sounding Brooklyn cheer that such resolutions and threat deserve.

When will the Right-wing, Right Wingers realize that such tactic are juvenile at best and at worse devastating to the cause.

To beat Hilary Clinton on 2016 is not to oppose the production of specials concerning the former Secretary of State, Senator from New York and First Lady of the United States, but to lavish praise on the woman, to make her one of them. That, my friends, would be a worthy strategy.

Will that happen? Most likely it will, but only by a covey of Republican standard bearers, too few and too uninfluential to make a difference, like W’s daughter Barbara Bush.

The best strategy for the Dems, liberal and progressives? Not to openly laugh at the tomfoolery, but to shake our heads with sadness and concern, that the rules for debate, for public access to presidential candidates, is being made a mockery by the Pachyderms.

Let us smile, wish them well and move forward with real debates, without pre-arranged talking points and sarcasm that has plagued presidential debates since the GOP came to power in the Reagan years.

Please, take a moment and send a condolence letter or card to:

Reince Priebus, Chairman 
Republican National Committee
310 First Street, SW
Washington, DC 20003

Tell Reince how sorry you are that the GOP has lost yet another election. OK it is a bit early for 2016, but what was it Benjamin Franklin said about birds and worms?
