God, I cannot fucking believe that "Good Morning America" covered a Senate report on Benghazi (fucking autocorrect,  I swear to God) without mentioning that the Republicans who wrote it are basically making shit up as they go. Let's ignore that the Repubs made a scandal out of a tragic but insignificant incident that they helped create, thanks to their very adult habit of doing the opposite of what Dems identify as necessary. In this case, they voted away requests for additional security, which resulted in four deaths. Then they just.....made shit up. Who votes for these assholes?

I need a whole new tag because this crap is worse than can be covered by 'assholes'.

Bitter, angry white people. It's insane isn't it?

And they're incredibly stupid. I was getting shit for this stuff five or six years ago, when my PTSD was especially bad. Turns out PTSD doesn't make you stupid and sanity doesn't mean you're smart, either. I had a whole bunch of Republican 'friends' drop me because I was so harsh on them. Looks like I wasn't hard enough.

People like my SIL and brother, who are vehemently anti-choice so the only good politician to them is one who would deny women their bodily rights. This in spite of SIL once saying to me 'they're all crooked'. Well if that's the case, why bother voting at all? Oh that's right, OMG TEH BEBBEHS.

And about half of my family who are just SURE that Obama was born in Kenya and is a MOOSLIM and that all of the Repukes are "born again Christians!"

Do they realize that Kenya is 50 years old-----while President Obama is 52?

You cannot confuse these people with factual evidence. It only makes them more belligerant.

I keep quoting the Bible to them--you know,the part about feed the hungry, clothe the naked, welcome the stranger, visit the imprisoned, care for the widow and orphan...and asking them how their beloved "born again Christian" Republicans are following those directives when they are opposed to free lunch programs for poor children, against health care for the poor, against immigration, against welfare or any kind of social safety net. It only makes them bitterly angry and hostile.

That's exactly what happened when I called out my relatives on the bullshit they were spouting. It was weirdly fascinating - like watching a wall literally come slamming down as they kept bleating variants of "BECAUSE GOD SAID SO/ABORTION IS MURDER/OBAMA IS TEH ANTICHRIST" over and over. It was then that I realized there is absolutely no reaching them at all (and believe me, I've tried over the years). They're that entrenched in rigidity. *shakes head* Well, they can keep it if that's what they like, but I get REALLY fucking pissed off that that same mindset negatively affects MY life and the lives of other people I care about.

I had to laugh today in a spiteful, sarcastic, unamused way when I read that Mr. BONEHEAD had announced that he felt it was time to "move on" regarding the Chris Christy bridge incident. Yet, he and his ilk are still attempting to find something insidious about Bengazi, which has been researched to death and found to be just what it is and not the horrible indictment of the Obama administration that the repukes are attempting to make it.
