From the notebooks. October 4, 2013.
As digby notes, lamestream media types are beginning to wake up to the fact that the Republican Party has become the party of hateful and destructive and not particularly bright yahoos. Finally the Villagers are listening to us, right? I doubt it. I’m pretty sure that what’s opened their eyes is that the shutdown and the promised fight over raising the debt ceiling are threatening their stock portfolios. Back when the yahoos were only hating on African Americans, women, gays, immigrants, Muslims, the poor, and the sick, the Tea Party was “jess folks” and the yahoos reg’lar Merkins.
