Today, for a change of pace, we’re going to take a little trip into the mind of the Republican party. The GOP platform is filled with things that don’t mean what they seem to on the surface, but every once in a while, they slip up and tell the truth.
Voter ID, is to prevent voter fraud, right?
Oh wait, you’re not supposed to say that part out loud! Listen to the round of applause it got. That’s PA House Republican Mike Turzai accidentally saying that they put voter id laws in to allow Romney to win the state. In case it wasn’t clear enough, here’s another PA Republican accidentally letting the truth slip out.
It’s really too easy when they come out and say it.
How about that Benghazi Select Committee they’re all so passionate about? It’s about the Principle, right?
Another swing and a miss. This is Kevin McCarthy (R-CA), who was at the time thought to be the front-runner to replace Boehner as Speaker of the House. Unfortunately, he went on Hannity and admitted that the Benghazi Select Committee, which lasted longer than the congressional investigation into 9/11, was really about bringing down Hillary’s numbers. Needless to say, he didn’t go on to become the Speaker.
Those are just a few of the hits. Maybe we’ll revisit this one again.
