So…the House Republicans apparently have a Twitter account. Upon further review, it looks like it’s probably manned by interns who are really good at finding the most mundane of links and articles to hit the retweet button, fulfilling their obligation to be as vanilla as possible.
I discovered the account a while back while perusing what I call my “conservative Twitter,” which is a collection of stupidity highlighted by follows of your typical rank and file idiots, super-idiots like Donald Trump and Sarah Palin and a host of buffoons currently being led by Scott Baio’s return to relevance in the hearts and minds of the daft.
Whoever is today’s intern in charge of Twitter, however, actually caught my attention with a retweet so monumentally hypocritical for anyone who votes red it borders on “is this a joke?” Republicans, the party of small government that wants to do away with regulation of all things with the exception of the vagina, now have to own this, unless they decide to admit that they were hacked by someone with a sense of humor:
Patients, families and doctors should be making decisions…unless you’re a woman. In that case, patients, families and doctors should be making decisions based on what the Republican Party believes in conjunction with their “Christian values” that state that all life is sacred — unless you’re a Muslim or on death row or come knocking on their door at 2 AM because you had a car accident or aren’t complying with police. In all of those cases, you deserve to be dead.
But…save the zygotes!
The hypocrisy. It burns.
