What Would a Dumbass Republican Do?
Eric Lawrence sez: "My friend Rich Malley, creator of Thot4ThDay (a
daily humor email, over 8 years and running), sends these dead-on


    Dear Friends:

    If the shoe was on the other foot, What Would a Dumbass Republican Do?

    Get depressed?

    Get down?

    Feel defeated?

    Go away?

    Refrain from being an obnoxious pain in the ass, 24/7?

    Temper his sense of righteous entitlement?

    Mute his howls of indignation?

    Question his convictions?

    Hell, no!

    Here's what a Dumbass Republican would do:

    Act like a winner in a world full of deluded losers.

    Refuse to let the "facts on the ground" deter his belief in what
he's got coming.

    Drown out polite civil discourse by braying his unshaken beliefs
like a stuck pig.

    Refuse to shut the fuck up.

    Refuse to go away.

    Wrap himself in the flag and impugn the patriotism of any who
would question his moral superiority.

    Wear a big shit-eating grin that gives the other side just a
moment of pause as they lay their heads on their pillows at night.

    Have a glint in his eye that says, "I may have a shit-eating grin
on my face, but I'm just waiting for an opportunity to slip this knife

    See this not as a defeat, but as an inconvenient mistake.

    Friends, join me.

    Do not accept.

    Do not waver.

    Do not shut up.

    Do not give comfort with your distress.

    Be an unrelenting irritant.

    Be a dumbass.

    Right now, attitude is everything.

    Together, we can help each other bear the present while shortening
the time - and it will come - when we prevail."
