When did being a Republican become synonymous with being a complete and total retard? It wasn't always like this. Back in the 50's, 60's and 70's, there were plenty of potty trained Republicans. But after the religious right got their grubby little paws on the right, everything went to hell in a handbasket where it continues unabated to this day. And now, in a repeat of pretty much every GOP candidate over the last few decades, we have another clown car of contestants each vying for who can out-stupid the next.
Let's start with one media darling, Scott Walker, which many are proclaiming the next President of the US in 2016 as he can appeal to all Americans. Really? These pundits must have missed Walker's embarrassing interview on ABC news this week with political debate moderator, Martha Radditz. When she asked him to go into detail on any of his "bold new ideas," he either hummed and hawed around the subject, or told the same old crap that the GOP has been pedaling for decades now, even though most of us with a brain can see it isn't working. Let's take a look at some of the transcript from Forbes magazine shall we:

RADDATZ: Let’s talk about some specific, and you talk about leadership and you talk about big, bold, fresh ideas. What is your big, bold, fresh idea in Syria?
WALKER: Well, I think – I go back to the red line.
RADDATZ: Let’s not go back. Let’s go forward. What is your big, bold idea in Syria?
WALKER: I think aggressively, we need to take the fight to ISIS and any other radical Islamic terrorist in and around the world, because it’s not a matter of when they attempt an attack on American soil, or not if I should say, it’s when, and we need leadership that says clearly, not only amongst the United States but amongst our allies, that we’re willing to take appropriate action. I think it should be surgical.
RADDATZ: You don’t think 2,000 air strikes is taking it to ISIS in Syria and Iraq?
WALKER: I think we need to have an aggressive strategy anywhere around the world. I think it’s a mistake to –
RADDATZ: But what does that mean? I don’t know what aggressive strategy means. If we’re bombing and we’ve done 2,000 air strikes, what does an aggressive strategy mean in foreign policy?
WALKER: I think anywhere and everywhere, we have to be – go beyond just aggressive air strikes. We have to look at other surgical methods. And ultimately, we have to be prepared to put boots on the ground if that’s what it takes, because I think, you know–
RADDATZ: Boots on the ground in Syria? U.S. boots on the ground in Syria?
 WALKER: I don’t think that is an immediate plan, but I think anywhere in the world.
RADDATZ: But you would not rule that out.
WALKER: I wouldn’t rule anything out. I think when you have the lives of Americans at stake and our freedom loving allies anywhere in the world, we have to be prepared to do things that don’t allow those measures, those attacks, those abuses to come to our shores.
And here is Forbes response to that:

Walker suggested he doesn’t want boots on the ground in the Middle East but he may want boots on the ground later. He wants an aggressive strategy but couldn’t bring himself to say that the current administration’s 2000 air strikes are something less than aggressive.
And then, in a truly bold and daring proposal, Walker suggested that he wouldn’t rule anything out when it comes to dealing with ISIS.
Whew…my mind is reeling with all these fresh, new non-ideas that we’ve all been treated to for so many years.

Walker went on to talk about the border, terrorism and other GOP talking points that have no basis in reality. Yeah, he's a winner. How he was re-elected shows how stupid the voting public is. To demonstrate further, there are workers in Alabama who are trying to get rid of their union even though the foreign company that owns it, demands one. How dumb do you have to be to get rid of someone trying to help you not get fired and paid slave wages? Unions are a good thing and only brain dead Fox News watchers would believe that.
But you want to hear something funny? Even Fox news is ridiculing the anti-vaccination crowd as pundits like Megan Kelly and Bill O'Reilly both laughed at Chris Christie, Rand Paul and the idiotic anti-vaccination crowd for their recent gaffes concerning vaccines. Both Paul and Christie unwisely stepped onto the side of the nutters, thinking government overreach would play well to the base. Christie went on to say it was about personal choice while Paul went a step further and claimed with zero proof that vaccines were causing severe mental retardation in kids. Where are these kids Paul? If they exist bring them forward, but you can't, because just like Michelle Bachmann's claim a few years back, they are not real.

Here's the thing. the anti-vaccination crowd is almost all female, affluent, educated and, most importantly, liberal. Do you know what conservatives like? Vaccines. Their poll numbers dropped almost immediately, and both were forced to back track severely, saying they of course believe in vaccines, that all their kids were vaccines and they were just commenting on personal choices. Paul went so far as to be photographed getting a booster shot. This will do lasting damage and something Christie can hardly afford. According to insiders, NJ donors are all going to Jeb Bush now, who will be vulnerable in his own right thanks to his last name. Anybody voting for that lunatic should be shot as a traitor to this country.

The GOP has a problem and their candidates are already self-destructing and the political season hasn't even gotten off yet. Imagine what will happen when the whole world is watching.
And as for the anti-vaccination crowd, illegal immigrants are NOT bringing measles across the border. Unvaccinated morons traveling overseas are brining it back with them because this anti-vaccination thing is not new, just more media studied now. Our own idiot citizens are doing the job for the terrorists. And the reason why you can't sue vaccination companies is because a small percentage of people vaccinated will suffer side effects. If everyone of them sued, which they would, it would bankrupt the vaccine companies and then none of us get vaccines. Yeah that's much better.

I get it. You don't trust anyone anymore, nor should you. But unless tens of thousands are getting sick from vaccines, which they aren't, everyone need to be immunized, less diseases like polio make a triumphant come back.
