This is a smart, pithy ad. I was tempted to say that I’d change one thing — that it wasn’t congress per se that wants to destroy the Postal Serivce, but Republicans — yet dumbass Democrats helped create this mess so yeah, that “the congress” got us into this fix is a fact:
Demcorats suffered from Stockholm Syndrome during the Bush years, and, frankly, they still are.
Apropos of the post below, I think the GOP should hold a presidential debate once a week or maybe more.
The more we see of that crowd the crazier the whole party looks.
This is from the very conservative Weekly Standard regarding last night’s Fox-Google GOP presidential debate:
THE WEEKLY STANDARD’s official reaction to last night’s Republican presidential debate: Yikes.
Reading the reactions of thoughtful commentators after the stage emptied, talking with conservative policy types and GOP political operatives later last evening and this morning, we know we’re not alone. Most won’t express publicly just how horrified—or at least how demoralized—they are. After all, they still want to beat Obama—as do we. And they want to get along with the possible nominee and the other candidates and their supporters. They don’t want to rock the boat too much. But maybe the GOP presidential boat needs rocking.
The e-mails flooding into our inbox during the evening were less guarded. Early on, we received this missive from a bright young conservative: “I’m watching my first GOP debate…and WE SOUND LIKE CRAZY PEOPLE!!!!” As the evening went on, the craziness receded, and the demoralized comments we received stressed the mediocrity of the field rather than its wackiness. As one more experienced, and therefore more jaded, observer wrote: “I just thought maybe it’s always this bad…they’re only marginally worse than McCain and Bush.”
Yes “bright young conservative,” you do “SOUND LIKE CRAZY PEOPLE!!!!”
