Republicans! Motto: Handing You The Bat To Hit Us Over The Head With Since 2006

In the new spirit of Obamasanship we have been offering our republican colleagues the occasional tidbit of advice as to how they may best go about rejoining the rest of us out here in the reality based world.

Apparently, they haven't been paying attention.

Now, we're sure some of our reader(s) would see this as a positive because taking advice from this blog is tantamount to getting plumbing instructions from Sam Wurzelbacher. Still when the best spokesperson you can put out to the American public is an obese, perverted ex-drug addict, it's not like you have a lot of options.

Coming off a shellacking at the polls in November, the plurality of GOP voters (43%) say their party has been too moderate over the past eight years.

Right. Starting two wars, condoning torture and kidnapping, setting up black site prisons, eavesdropping on most Americans, wrecking the economy and trashing the Constitution. That's too moderate like Attila the Hun was too concerned with is haircut.

55% think it should become more like Alaska Governor Sarah Palin in the future.

In what way Charlie? The stupid part or the lying part?

Just after losing the election, 69% Republican voters said Palin helped McCain’s bid for the presidency, and nearly two-thirds said she should be the party’s 2012 presidential nominee. Sixty-five percent (65%) of GOP voters had a Very Favorable view of her at that time.

OK, we're going to go with the stupid part.

Younger voters are more likely than their elders to think the GOP has been too conservative during the Bush years, but voters in nearly all age groups are more closely divided on the future direction of the party between McCain and Palin.

Those are your choices? Man, sorry about that.

Just 15% of Evangelical Christian voters feel that the Republican Party has been too conservative for the past eight years, while 50% think it has been too moderate.

Uh huh. This from the people who say god is on their side. Folks, 53 to 46. Face it, the deity's just not that into you. On the bright side though it doesn't matter because the world is going to end in 2012. Sorry Sarah. You coulda been a contender.

As for the rest of the republicans, well, you'll always have David Vitter and the porn star.
