#RandiRhodes @RandiRadio blog: Crisis Fatigue

by Randi Rhodes posted Feb 26 2013 5:55PM

Allowing the sequester would be a disaster, but the American public doesn’t seem too concerned about it. The American public has something they should call Republican Manufactured Crisis Fatigue Syndrome. It’s kind of hard to get worked up over a problem that would disappear if people just act rationally. The problem is that some of those people have to be Republicans.

Republicans tend to take most of the blame whenever there’s a government shutdown. That’s because, without Republicans, there never would be a government shutdown. Hello! If there’s a fire, the first person you blame is the know pyromaniac. Something burned down? Chances are it’s that guy who is always lighting matches and giggling.

Lindsey Graham says that he would be willing to support revenue increases as part of a sequester deal. Uh Lindsey, just because you’re the biggest nut on Benghazi doesn’t mean the Tea Party is giving you permission to make sense on the sequester.

A group of prominent Republicans has signed a legal brief to the Supreme Court in support of gay marriage. Technically, it’s called an amicus brief, or a “friend-of-the-court” brief. Heck, most Republicans would refuse to sign that just because it sounds gay. The people signing this brief are friends of the court, AND friends of Dorothy. The brief cites previous Supreme Court decisions, including Citizens United. That’s the law for you—they’re promoting something right using the logic employed to do something else wrong.

In Colorado, a gun nut has been arrested for sending harassing and threatening emails to a state representative who is working on gun control.  One of man’s emails threatened the rep and another lawmaker by using Gabbie Giffords’ name. He wrote “Hopefully somebody Gifords both your asses with a gun.” And he misspelled “Giffords.” Amazing!  He made up a term… and he still managed to misspell it. How hard is that?
