Republicans say he darnedest things..

The Daily Kos had a nice piece on Rep. Robin Hayes (R-NC) denying the latest dumb thing to come out of his trap, that "liberals hate real Americans that work and accomplish and achieve and believe in God."

According to the latest Republican doublespeak, even though I work at least 55 hours a week, I don't attend church regularly, so I must not be a real American. I live in a city, and real Americans live in towns the size of a Norman Rockwell painting. I ask questions about how my government is run, so I'm a liberal, which by rule, makes me utterly un-American. Am I the only one who finds the sheep mentality of the GOP terrifying? Hayes basically followed Palin's lead on "real America" and tried to deny it once she revised her statement when it was openly blasted as a divisive comment. When did independent thought become so unattractive?

The Daily Show bit on real Americans was great. I loved the churchgoing dude with the arms of tattoos of barebreasted girlfriends past and present. I don't have any tattoos so I think that means I'm a gay atheist or something.

dick - this is a great point. repubs hate taxes so much that the folks that are responsible for paying for roads, schools, hospitals, paying police wages, etc (read: the royal "you" and the royal "i") are not "real amurkins". it their minds we should be praying for healthcare, not paying for it.
