Jon Henke over at QandO went slogging through the sewers over at conspiracy nut (how's that natural gas pipeline in Afghanistan going?) and hater/cartoonist Ted Rall's site and came up with this gem. [You might have to scroll down, the permalinks don't appear to be working.]
A reader responding to my column "When is a Win Not a Win?" from a few weeks ago has sent me a persuasive case for banning the Republican Party. As in making it illegal for the GOP to hold meetings or run for office. Forever.
It's not as wild as you might thing. Political parties are banned all over the earth. For instance, the Communist Party is banned in Russia and the Nazi Party is prohibited in Germany. The Republican Party hasn't murdered in the tens of millions, but why wait? The current band of GOP criminals, just getting started, has already killed over 600,000 Iraqis. While they're currently on the wane, they're a malevolent influence who will surely return to make America a worse place sooner rather than later.
Anyway, it's tough medicine and I'll have to think about it, but here's John Cutaia's argument for disbanding the Republicans.
You don't even have to read the letter itself, it's full of every standard left-wing complaint about "evil Republicans." But isn't it funny how the so-called tolerant left is always quick to advocate totalitarian solutions when they can't win democratic elections.
*On a related Q & O note* I heartily recommend this analysis of Sen. Jeff Sessions plan to raise my taxes.
