Noted & Quoted, P.J. O’Rourke edition
“We conservatives dislike government and we have the candidates to prove it.”
Nice to hear a conservative admit the obvious. Sadly, O’Rourke is in the minority.
This week we learned a Republican nominee for Congress from Ohio likes to dress up in Nazi uniforms for “historical re-enactments.” Tea party favorite Rich Iott claims he meant no offense, and, unsurprisingly, some conservative apologists are lining up in his defense.
I’m sure they wouldn’t mind me and my buddies dressing up as Taliban to re-create the stoning of 11-year-old girls. On second thought, maybe I’ll just send out some racist spam with attachments of women being fucked by horses.
