What to do when you ain't got nothin'

According to Ben Smith of Politico,
The Republican National Committee plans to raise money this election cycle through an aggressive campaign capitalizing on “fear” of President Barack Obama and a promise to "save the country from trending toward socialism."

The strategy was detailed in a confidential party fundraising presentation, obtained by POLITICO, which also outlines how “ego-driven” wealthy donors can be tapped with offers of access and “tchochkes.”
Read the rest of the story here.

If you needed evidence that the Republican Party is morally and intellectually bankrupt, here it is.

The Republican Party does not want voters to make rational choices. People do not make rational choices when they are terrified, and Republicans want to terrify voters. And one gets the sense that if they had to perform fellatio on their donors in order to get their cash, they would do it in a New York minute. Such is the cynicism of today's Republican Party.

Republicans know that if they had to compete with Democrats in a marketplace of ideas, they would fail miserably. Usually, the only idea they have to offer they got from Ronald Reagan: cut taxes. Cutting taxes is obviously not a sustainable approach to governing. Since they cannot compete in the marketplace of ideas, they want to create a campaign in which ideas are irrelevant—a campaign driven by greed, hatred, fear, and lies.

Hey, Republicans: after being subjected to watching your immature, amoral, disgusting behavior for the last ten years, I have recently resolved never to vote for any of you bastards for as long as I shall live. May your stinking corpse of a party push the daisies on the ash heap of history.
