    Another poster asked whether or not the R could look more friendly than they really are about various issues - women, gays, blacks, Hispanics, human beings. The real question is whether or not they can pretend to be real, authentic, human, with compassion and intelligence and a very real respect for others. The answer is a resounding NO and here's yet another example of why that's true.

    Ann Coulter Attacks Latinos In Column, As Conservatives Seek To Reach Out To Hispanic Voters

    There will always be people like Ann Coulter who do not lie in order to get votes. Just as there will always be someone with a video camera or a recorder to catch jerks like Mittens when he states his true opinions about his fellow Americans.

    Romney laughed at his followers and made fun of them, even as he was using them. Coulter, Limbaugh, fox, dredge, etc - the mouthpieces of the pubs - cannot resist the temptation to spew their hate for their own country.

    That is why they lost and why they will continue to lose.

    I wonder what you'd do if you didn't have HuffPo to do your thinking for you.

    The Callous Conservative faction of the GOP lacks empathy. Whether this lack of ability to recognize feelings of others is a clinical disorder ,Narcissistic personality disorder for example (or worse), or a learned behavior is dependent on the individual.

    You sig says it well. They are anti-American working class, anti-woman, anti-everything except old white men with gobs of money.

    Indeed, they don't even like Ann Coulter (or $arah) even though she regurges the shit spewed by rw scum like limbaugh, who, apparently, is still the de facto head of the GObP.

    No, shithead. It means your dumb ass wouldn't know it.
    What makes you think I care what she says, old man? She's about as informative as you are. At least she comes up with her own material.

    Their image problem is even more basic then that, America is sick of being scared into allowing them to do dumb shit. Americans have traditionally responded better to optimism and courage, maybe we are finally remembering who we used to be.

    It's a play on words that came out when Republicans jumped up to defend British Petroleum (BP) during the gulf oil spill rather than the fishermen and people of the region whose livelihoods were damaged or destroyed by BP's negligence.
