The Republican Party

3/7/2009

One of the reasons the “childish” party of Fleischer and Limbaugh is having such a tough time in the wilderness is they’ve done a too-clever-by-half job figuring out how to systematically weaponize language. There’s no referee. It’s their right. It’s also no great parlor trick, and you can go to any grade-school playground and find the same. The day Republicans work to signal good faith by policing their own house on basic respect in language will probably run parallel with the day we’ll see the party reborn as an ideologically grownup force
