The Republican Party's Long War

Andrew Sullivan is somewhat surprised that the GOP has launched "total war" against the Obama administration.

I don't know why.

The Republican Party has been waging total war against the Democrats ever since Newt Gingrich first announced that "politics is war by other means."

Of course, it should be mentioned that the Republicans are losing the war.

What horse shit. Compare Robert Bork or Clarence Thomas confirmations to Ruth Bader Ginsburg being confirmed 96 to 3. Add in that Obama and Biden both opposed the very qualified John Roberts. Politics has always been rough, grow a pair.

Bork was rightfully rejected. He's an even bigger nut case than Thomas and would have set Supreme Court jurisprudence back fifty years.

As for the "war on the democrats," "war on liberalism," "culture wars," "war on science," and other wars the Republicans have been fighting on American territory, I was making the observation. Instead of complaining about these things, the Democrats and liberals need to fight better and people on the left have been doing so even if a lot of Democrats (like Obama) engage in wishful thinking about bi-partisanship.

The American "left" will have more credibility when they take off their Che tee shirts. Are you familiar with Pelosi bi-partisanship? Should Republicans imitate that?

I like those Wat Tyler shirts myself.
