Prioleau Alexander: The ‘Do-Nothing’ Party

“The overwhelming number of Republicans are not just sleeping with the enemy … they are the enemy.”  

Getting your Trinity Audio player ready...

While most readers assume my disdain for politicians is aimed solely at Democrats, nothing could be further from the truth. I am an equal opportunity disdainer-er. The truth is, I view Republicans in congress as little more than Democrats with different-but-equally-fake talking points.

I believe we are run by a one-party government, with a system not unlike the one used in professional wrestling: There’s a good guy, and a bad guy, and the crowd goes wild in support of their guy. Regardless of the outcome, both wrestlers get together after the cameras quit rolling to drink 20-year-old scotch, light cigars with $100 bills and laugh at how dumb the audience is.

Consider this tiny smattering of occasions:

Barack Obama and Joe Biden in the Oval Office (The White House)

When the audio recordings of Joe Biden revealing he took bribes from the owners of Bursima, they could very well contain the words, “Yes, I Joe Biden agree to take a bribe from you to give you access to Obama.” What would the Republicans do if that happened? Nothing.

Some may say, “Well, they’re restrained by law, and what actions they can take.”

Really? Then why do Democrats kick their asses around like a meth-fueled trailer-park step-dad? Aren’t they restrained by the same laws? Even when the GOP is in power, they do nothing to stop the Democrats from doing whatever the hell they feel like.

During the Republicans laughable attempt to censure the abhorrent Adam Schiff, Democrats were so unfazed one yelled, “censure all of us!” Schiff said he’d “wear the censure like a badge of honor.” Five Republicans voted “present,” in yet another bullshit “reach across the aisle” scheme. In perhaps the most hilarious remark of the entire goat rodeo, the censure stated Schiff had “dishonored the House.”

Dishonored? Can a porn star be dishonored? Did Jeffrey Dahmer bring dishonor to other serial killers because he ate his victims? The House and Senate are two of the most contemptuous governing bodies in the world, given the sacred duties and brilliant governmental design passed along to them by the Founding Fathers. At least the fake government doing the bidding of some tin-pot dictator doesn’t try to kid themselves or others — they take the graft and live big … but at least they don’t have the unmitigated gall to pretend they’re “honorable.”    

I’ve written in the past about the GOP’s love of “losing again and again, but maintaining good manners while doing so.” It’s a brand they embrace, and hide behind their graciousness to explain why they lose. Every. Single. Time.

Donald Trump (The White House)

President Trump achieved his success by focusing on winning. He didn’t give a crap who opposed him — which many Republicans in his own party did. He didn’t care if he had to be abusive to win a fight. He didn’t care that our “allies” in NATO cried that they had to pay their agreed upon share of NATO defense. He didn’t care what the “international community” thought when he upended trade deals that were screwing America. He didn’t care that liberals boo-hoo-ed about his closing the border.

The arrogant, egotistical, abrasive, offensive, mean-spirited, angry Orange Man did one thing only: He fought to implement policies that would benefit Americans … and he won. And our elected Republicans hated him for it … because he used bad manners to do things like sending a previously anemic economy to the moon.  

We conservatives get excited about Jim Jordan “kicking ass,” when in reality he’s accomplishing nothing. We got excited when the most disingenuous bastard on the planet, Lindsay Graham, raised his voice during the Kavanaugh hearings. We’re sure Republicans rising up is “just around the corner.” We’re thrilled every time we hear about Republicans doing something more than nothing. 

It’s pathetic. 

Sherlock Holmes said, “once you’ve eliminated the impossible, whatever remains, however the improbable, must be the truth.”

It is impossible that Democrats are that ingenious – or Republicans that feckless and stupid. It’s impossible that Democrats have such a keen acumen regarding the law and how to skirt it, while Republicans are oblivious to such strategy and tactics. It’s impossible that the Republicans — even when in power — can accomplish nothing.

Ergo, what remains must be the truth: The overwhelming number of Republicans are not just sleeping with the enemy … they are the enemy.  

If you can, please change my mind. I’d love to believe the men and women elected by GOP voters are grounded in conservative interests and principles. But, before doing so, you first need to eliminate the impossible.

I was totally with you until the part where you tried to make Trump sound like a “did-something” President.

When DJT pushed through his bumpstock ban, causing more tangible harm to our 2A rights in his first three years than Obama did in eight, what did the Republicans do? Nothing.

When DJT, rather than drain The Swamp as promised, made almost all major hires, appointments, and nominations directly from The Swamp, what did the Republicans do? Nothing.

When DJT was adding to the Federal deficit, what did the Republicans do? Nothing.

When DJT was pushing the Faucian clot shots, acquiescing in shutdowns of commerce and daily life, what did the Republicans do? Nothing.

DJT had a good portion of his presidency on cruise control and delegated most of the actual work to Republican party stooges. Republicans didn’t “do nothing,” they did all the stuff you complained about.

You guys are still stuck thinking Trump masterminded all this stuff when the guy was playing golf and dicking around on Twitter while “the help” ran the WH Day Care all around him.

Combine this with DeSantis tilting at mouse eared windmills and RFK Jr. shilling for crypto and honestly, I don’t understand how you folks dress yourselves every morning with the amount of intellect it takes to idolize these morons like you do.

It’s repetition of these faux outrage issues drummed in their heads 24/7. No one delivers on that better than the GOP and the radical right media. We all know they don’t really believe any of the crap they spew but their stooges do, as often seen in this very column space.

LOL you believe every piece of crap conspiracy theory you have ever read (as long as it is what you want to hear). The reason Republicans did nothing about 90% of your observations, is they are fake news. There was nothing to do. It is all crap ginned up by right-wing media and those who control them to play their dumb ass readers and watchers, and by politicians like Donald Trump to get those same dumb asses to send them money. Just like you are doing right now. Intentionally, or giving you the benefit of the doubt, because you are a fool you are spreading the same fake news and disinformation that has been debunked over and over. But you can’t fix stupid, so most of us have quit trying.

The GOP wants dumb, uneducated laborers to exploit and grift off of, but actually going down a rabbit hole like anti vax is endangering the livestock. You have to keep it at the conspiracy level so only the dumbest of the dumb win themselves some Darwin Awards. The rest need to remain vaccinated so they can go back to the soulless cubicle farms and/or service industry jobs without killing themselves by the hundreds of thousands.

The deaths of over a million Americans is only a big deal insomuch as it affects the pocketbooks of the insanely rich. If they found a way to make money off of that many deaths they would be cranking that machine 24/7.

Republicans don’t act on the lies their propaganda arm sells you on? Oh geeze man, what a shocker.

Next you’ll tell me they aren’t investigating the pharmaceutical companies that bribe them because it was never about actual concern over what was in the vaccines, just making sure you dull witted gullible clods showed up to vote in an election they still bungled badly.

I think Drunkle is close to realizing he’s been a fool all along, but in the most hilariously wrong way possible. GOP fiction writers aren’t doing a good enough job for him anymore.

While it does appear the GOP is a pack of wussies and the Dems are the party of insanity, it’s the unelected bureaucrats running the country so politicians can concentrate on insider trading and doing as little as possible for American citizens.
