Brer Rabbit or the Republican Party?
My theory is that the Republicans are Brer Rabbiting Democrats and liberals. For those who don't know who Brer Rabbit is, he's the bunny that invented reverse psychology and got sent to his room to play Xbox all day as punishment for stealing Monsanto seeds from a corporate farmer. And now it looks like Brer is a major strategist for the Republican party.
Democrats pass Republican, imperfect, corporate -welfare healthcare plan. Republican carry-on for years how much they hate it, "How could make us pass our own healthcare plan. Oh we hate it so much. It's the absolute worst. I rather be thrown into a brier patch."
Next, they double down on their coy act and try to pass a healthcare plan that is ten times worse then the original one they constructed and got passed. Which has the rest of the country who really wants single payer but would settle for some fixes on the ACA just begging any politician they can get an email address for to please let us keep the bone you threw us.
Next, we have FBI director James Comey. Democrats hate him. Loathe the man, until the President fires Comey so the President can cover up a scandal, which really just Republicans screaming, "No really! Please! Please! Don't throw me into that brier patch" . Now, rumor has it he might be replaced by Chris Christie the least popular governor in the history of US Governors (and some of those Governors have gone to jail.) Democrats are besides themselves. "No, no, no. Give us back that guy who might have cost our candidate the election. "
What do you think is going to happen next? The Energy Secretary is going to come out with a plan that we are now going to burn babies and puppies to power our our grid. People will respond, "No, not the country's cuties! If you're going to burn anything burn coal! Coal burns perfectly well. Babies are too moist, it's so inefficient.
EPA let's California farms use every last drop of water in the water table so the population has no choice but to beg them to melt the icebergs faster because we're so parched.
The treasury department decides to take the tax revenues to Vegas. So that the only response is fine, more Goldman Sachs guys.
In a reverse of hip hop philosophy. Don't hate the game hate the players. The game is genius. Evilly genius.
