People have good reason to call Democrats the Evil Party. They are equally justified in referring to Republicans as the Stupid Party. Wondering why on earth Republican leadership would go along with Obama on his Syrian misadventure when opposing it not only is the responsible thing to do, but would get the American public solidly behind them? May God have mercy on the GOP by putting it out of its misery if this is the explanation:
Maybe if I give the bully my lunch money, he won’t be mean to me anymore.
That this is believable as an explanation underscores the fact that Boehner and Cantor are widely perceived as stupid, weak, unprincipled, and cowardly. If the GOP is to be anything more than a satellite of the Democrat Party, they must be removed from their leadership positions at once.
