Well here's today's Daily Outrage for your Badgered State.
In their incessant attacks on education, teachers, workers, unions, the middle class, etc, the Republicons have always promoted the myth of a vast swath of "Bad Teachers" that must be found out and routed. Well now they've decided to make that myth a reality! Under Republicon Rule your Badgered State is set to become The ONLY State in the Nation to allow people to get a license to teach without even having a bachelors degree. Hell They Don't Even have to have a HIGH SCHOOL DIPLOMA! Drop Out, Kiss @$$ and Ca$h In!
Well boys, we gonna out Mississippi Mississippi! We've been racing for four years now, are we at the bottom yet? Could we plummet any further? It looks like I'm going to have to encourage my children who are in their 20's to leave the Badgered State so that my grandchildren can grow in a state that values it's citizens and therefore educating the children.
Which leads me to the following thought. Wiscossippi's Republicon Party has achieved a remarkable goal. Their elected officials and party GOPeratives are are now almost 100% Asshole!
A recent article in the Atlantic Monthly used the following definition: “The asshole (1) allows himself to enjoy special advantages and does so systematically; (2) does this out of an entrenched sense of entitlement; and (3) is immunized by his sense of entitlement against the complaints of other people.”
Sounds like all the GOPsters I know, especially Wrong Way Walker. In fact I challenge anyone to name a current prominent Republicon who is NOT an Asshole. Good Luck With THAT!
Republicons are genius' at their craft of craftiness. Imagine if we could harness that genius for good! What I'm wondering is whether there might be a way to take whatever method they use and reverse engineer it. Imagine of you could find a way to create an organization almost completely devoid of Assholes, or even fine tune it to have just enough useful Assholes, but no more!
How do they do it? Is it a recruitment process they use? Do they effectively screen out non-Assholes? Might they're be something about the way they've built their organization that makes Assholes self-select for membership? Could it be a combination of these or is it something else. Figure it out and you could win a Nobel Peace Prize!
