Nobody Held A Gun To Their Head
There's one thought we cats can't get out of our minds as we watch the Republicans grapple with their epic Pussy Galore Weekend.
It wasn't enough that Donald Trump insulted and maligned everybody he insulted and maligned before his vile, adolescent and borderline-criminal "Access Hollywood" banter hit the airwaves on Friday — was it? Until then, the Republican Party may have been less than thrilled that the Freepers and the teabags and the haters had prevailed in the primaries, but still, they went along with the Trump coronation, hoping they could somehow paper over his hideousness and make it back to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.
We're cats, so we have to remind the GOP of the old adage about riding the tiger and ending up inside.
Particularly repugnant are Mitch McConnell, Paul Ryan and Rancid Pieface, who still refuse to disown their execrable nominee. But make no mistake: Everybody's a jackass here, from John McCain to Kelly Ayotte to Ted Cruz (ah, especially Ted Cruz... bad timing on that endorsement, Ted). Maybe the only Republican with any integrity these days is Lindsey Graham.
So, sorry, GOP — you need to own this. You have to admit that you cravenly tried to appeal to racism, bigotry, misogyny and xenophobia by going along with Trump — or even, in Mike Pence's case, calling him a "good man." But here's the thing: You don't get to toss him off the ticket. The American people deserve the opportunity to vote against this horrifying buffoon. We cats HISS.
