It is a disgrace–and politically stupid–that Barack Obama wants to “reach across the aisle” and “work with” these sick GOP motherfuckers. The only people left in the GOP are depraved misogynist, theocratic, racist, and/or plutocratic scumbags.
“Working with” the GOP is something Democrats have been attempting since Clinton. It never, ever, ever works. Give them the slightest bone, and it just emboldens them. NO MORE MOTHERFUCKING BONES for deranged assholes who hate you, hate your families, and seek to destroy everything that normal decent people hold dear.
Instead of reaching across the aisle, Obama and the Democratic Party should make it clear that the Democrats are not negotiating or otherwise working with the sick-fuck dregs of humanity that constitute the GOP, but that any former GOP members who want to join a coalition of the sane are welcome under the Democratic tent.
This is not only ethically, but also pragmatically, sound. Failure to take this tack establishes without question that Obama’s promises of “Change We Can Believe In” is just empty sloganeering from another political hackfuck.
