Since sometime back in the late 1800’s, the Republican Party has enjoyed the nickname of “Grand Old Party” or GOP for short. I appreciate being able to use a much shorter, 3-letter acronym than having to type out Republicans every time I want to refer to one of their ilk. But the “Grand Old Party” description is severely inaccurate.
So, this morning, I challenged my fellow Tweeters to come up with a more accurate phrase for which the abbreviated GOP would still work. Some of the suggestions include
Grotesque Old Putzes
Gruesome Old Panderers
Guilty Old Predators
Guilty Old Phonies
God Offal Perps
Greedy Old Profiteers
Gullible Old People
Grifters Of Public
Gonorrhea, Orgies, and Phalluses
Obviously, this is only a start. Feel free to add your suggestions in the comments below, or tweet them out with the hashtag #GOPstandsfor.
It was a busy show this morning…
Dan Perkins, better known as Tom Tomorrow, creator of This Modern World joined me in the last few hours of his massively successful Kickstarter campaign for an upcoming anthology of all of his cartoons, 25 Years of Tomorrow. It’s nice to see real talent rewarded. Big, much-deserved congrats to Dan!
Yesterday, I read Eleanor Clift’s blatant bit of journalistic malpractice in which she confirms her role as a stenographer for the corporate wing of the Democratic Party by attacking Congressman Alan Grayson and shilling for DINO, conservadem Patrick Murphy on behalf of the Florida Democratic Party.
And finally, it’s Tuesday, so GottaLaff joined me to shoot the shit about everything else in hour two.
Tomorrow, Stephanie Kelton, chief economist for Bernie Sanders and the Democrats on the Senate Finance Committee joins me, radio or not.
