Republican Taliban

This sounds about right. I for one am sick of constantly hearing about the Republicans undermining our government and country, wishing for another terrorist attack, hoping that Obama fails, etc. If we could have another election right now and wipe the slate clean of these cretins, that would be fine with me.

Following Limbaugh as they do they're going out on a worse ideological limb than they did in the Bush years, which is hard to believe is possible. But out and out rooting for national disaster, that is about as bad as anything I've ever heard of.

Now we have a congressman, Republican Rep. Pete Sessions of Texas, actually saying (actually saying!) that he thinks they ought to model their opposition to the Democrats on the Taliban's example! That they ought have an insurgency response that would be like the Taliban's!

"And that is that they went about systematically understanding how to disrupt and change a person's entire processes. And these Taliban -- I'm not trying to say the Republican Party is the Taliban. No, that's not what we're saying. I'm saying an example of how you go about [sic] is to change a person from their messaging to their operations to their frontline message. And we need to understand that insurgency may be required when the other side, the House leadership, does not follow the same commands, which we entered the game with."
You get your inspiration where you find it, I guess. Personally, I think this sounds very over the top or devious. The Taliban were/are evildoers, we might recall. So if the Republicans want to pattern their own role in the government after them ... they've now declared themselves.

Pete "Taliban" Sessions shall lead the way!
