Yes. How can it be that if it is so perfectly clear to people like yourself and the majority of us who post here, then why the hell can’t republicans understand it?
Because their agenda (the GOP establishment) is not ours.
For the politicians it is worse because they are surrounded by ass-kissers all day long, and then on the weekend they trot off to some liberal studio to get their ass kissed or get a doggie treat when they say something against their own party by being “bipartisan” or some such crap.
They love it! That old song “I love the night life, I like to boogie.....” I like the raw POWER (even second tier power), I like the young politi-groupies who'll screw me, I like the interns....and on and on and on an on.....
If the Bible were written today, DC would be a strong competitor for Sodom, or Gomorrah, for lead billing.
