The phrase “Knuckle-dragging GOP” is redundant

Posted: 07/29/2015 in Screwed

My conservative associates keep telling me that the GOP isn’t against new thoughts, but simply prefers to take a cautious approach to change.  I reply that the Republican Party has been with us since 1854.  Simon Cameron, a Republican Senator from Pennsylvania, was asked in 1861 his opinion about the Smithsonian Institution.  He replied, “I am tired of all this sort of thing called science here… We have spent millions in that sort of thing for the last few years, and it is time it should be stopped.”

The GOP hasn’t changed in 161 years.  What makes you think it’ll change during your lifetime?


Be seeing you.
