The GOP's OBL Insanity

I've been trying to write something about this forever, but I am always reduced to sputtering, inarticulate rage.

So let me get this straight:
Your boy W doesn't even have a meeting of the principals on terrorism until like seven months after he takes office, despite warnings from the out-going administration and from the intelligence community that OBL was a big threat. Then 9/11 happens. Then he Fs up in Afghanistan by sending in too few troops, largely because he wants to hold some back for his side project, the unrelated Iraq adventure. Consequently, OBL, the man who disintegrated the WTC, escapes from Tora Bora. Then W & co. lie us into the insane Iraq adventure/debacle. Then they decide that OBL, y'know, doesn't matter. Note, these are not some kind of hippie, lefty, pacifist, forgive-and-forget types, but the most vindictive m***** f*****s in the Western world.

Then the adults re-take the Presidency and kill that SOB OBL.

And now the GOP can't decide whether to say that it was because, y'know, Bush must have done something to make that possible, or that it doesn't matter, or that nobody should mention it because politicizing such a thing is wrong...

...The folks, that is, whose boy was flown onto an aircraft carrier, to strut up onto a stage in front of the cameras and a MISSION ACCOMPLISHED banner after they (mistakenly) thought that the Iraq war had been won.

See, here's the thing. There comes a point at which the contradiction and stupidity and the what gets called "irony" become so blatant that, if you can't see them, it is simply not possible to reason with you. This should hit you like the proverbial ton of bricks. But if it doesn't even whisper huh...that doesn't seem right to you, then there is nothing else that can be said. There is no argument available to humans that can make this all any clearer than the facts that are readily available to us all.

The GOP has lost its mind.

They purposefully shed the ability to recognize their evil hypocrisy and thus feel shame a long time ago.

Jon Stewart has been pointing out their lies and double-talk for a decade to no avail.
