Among the highlights, if you can believe it, are:
- The Democratic Party as Ronnie Reagan’s recycled “Evil Empire” moniker for the Communist Soviet Union, in turn borrowed by Reagan from the movies (Star Wars);
- The RNC’s bizarre co-opting of the stupid, racist, and offensive Teabagger graphic depicting the President of the United States as the “Joker” from Batman;
- Silly, infantile cartoons of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid as animated children’s characters “Cruella De Ville” and “Scooby Doo” (?!); and
- Lookalike Ayn Rand Atlas Shrugged front cover graphic of a wannabe John Galt (Paul Ryan?) holding up the globe weighed down by socialists everywhere, under your bed, in Hollywood, NYC, SF, rising from Joe McCarthy’s grave, hiding in the Cheneys’ basement, etc., with the ominous warning: “Save the country from trending toward Socialism!”
- First, push those “Visceral Giving” buttons! Appeal to FEAR and “Extreme negative feelings toward existing Administration” –- YESYESYES! FEAR! FEAR!! FEAR!!! The GOP’s tried-and-true political strategy to drive our country into the GUTTER from Lee Atwater to Karl Rove: push that FEAR button in those REACTIONARY morons driven by “issue/circumstantially oriented” attitudes, meaning they’re REBELS WITHOUT A CLUE who REACT to fearful circumstances in their lives rather than objective facts and reasoned arguments!
- Second, schmooze the “Major Donors” ($30,000 and up) with lots of “Personal” attention and “EGO DRIVEN” appeals!
Here are some of those HILARIOUS RNC OFFICIAL documents, boys and girls:
Even Republican Lite “Morning Joe” calls this “shameful” and says whoever is responsible “should be fired.”
