As if wading into legitimate rape wasn’t enough. Then it was their stone age thoughts on the female reproductive system. And finally, they dismissed evolution, ignored climate change, and firmly stated the Earth is only 6,000 years old.
Then the GOP has the nerve to blame Liberals when they lose a major election.
Ah! But this one might just top ’em all.
American’s For Prosperity, that happy-go-lucky GOP bunch that likes to flood Kane County with fascinating robocalls, just created their very own online game called “Lame Duck Hunt.” In their own words:
“This year, be among the first to play Americans for Prosperity’s Lame Duck Hunt computer game! You will have to work to keep bad policies from being enacted – every duck that escapes represents a bad policy. For every duck you bag, though, you stop a bad policy from being enacted”
Coincidentally, as you can see below, the “ducks” are dressed to resemble Congressmen and the hapless creatures are attempting to escape your wrath in rather close proximity to the Nation’s Capitol:
The group goes on to say that, within the course of the “game,” you can threaten…I mean “write a message to your Representative to let them know that you oppose bad policies such as income tax hikes and the death tax.” And they encourage you to share your high scores with all your friends.
Will someone please tell me how, after Arizona Representative Gabby Giffords gets shot by a deranged constituent, the fricken’ AFP could possibly think this “game” was a good idea? Well, either that or maybe they really are advocating the random shooting of outgoing Congressional members. I suppose there’s nothing quite like a target reticule to motivate an errant politician.
But thankfully, not all Republicans are bereft of the good sense God gave a billy goat. For it was Kane County Young Republican Chairman Tim Stoll who, aghast at this bizarre turn of events, sent me the AFP emailing proudly announcing this ploy. As he so aptly put it, “This is not helpful.”
Just how are Illinois Republicans ever going to beat the Democrats if they insist upon regularly shooting themselves in their own various and sundry appendages. Perhaps if they aimed for their heads the party would be a lot better off.
We’ll just file this one under “U” for un-bleeping-believable.
