We cats were just marveling at Republican hypocrisy on abortion — you know, that it's okay if a GOP guy's mistress needs one — when we realized anew just how low the Party of Lincoln has sunk.
For example, did you know that a murderer is running for the Republican Senate nomination in West Virginia? That would be Don Blankenship. He's the Massey Energy CEO who went to prison for violating mine-safety regulations and killing 29 Upper Big Branch miners in 2010. (The government called it conspiracy. We call it what it is.)
And did you know that a Nazi is running for Congress in Illinois as a Republican? Or that Paul Ryan, until he dropped out of the running for his Wisconsin Congressional seat last week, had a white supremacist challenging him from the right? Republicans are having a tough time finding someone to run in Ryan's place. They may end up with the white supremacist after all.
While we know that the GOP is worried about these candidates and has scrambled to denounce them, we're sorry — they get no points for that. What are these killers and haters doing in the party in the first place? They own this.
All of these shenanigans are on top of the fact that the Grand Old Party has obviously sold its soul to Russia, which is the most astounding development of all. Ronald Reagan, Richard Nixon and yes, Joe McCarthy would be appalled. We cats sure are, and we HISS.
