GOP Smash!!!

So this is apparently the GOP’s Brilliant Messaging Strategy:

Outside, the [anti-health care reform] demonstrators… arranged themselves on the lawn to spell the word “NO.”

By the time Minority Leader John Boehner took the floor at about 10 pm, the mood on the floor was barely distinguishable from the mood on the lawn outside. “Shame on each and every one of you,” the Republican leader yelled at the Democrats, as the GOP lawmakers gave him a standing ovation. Boehner said the Democrats were a “disgrace” to Jeffersonian values.

“Hell, no, you can’t!” Boehner shouted at the Democrats.

“No, you can’t! No, you can’t!” echoed the protesters outside.

“No, you can’t!”  Very catchy, very positive and uplifting, much like “I hope he fails.” How can the American people not vote for that kind of exciting vision for the future?  It truly evokes the nihilism at the core of the Republican Party: When they’re the opposition party, they obstruct everything and everyone, and when they’re the ruling party they dedicate themselves to destroying the Constitution and the government’s capacity to do good (i.e., regulation, oversight, infrastructure, social programs, etc.).

The vandals smashing up Democratic offices and the bigoted teabaggers screaming slurs at Democratic representatives are merely a physical manifestation of the Republican approach to government: Destroy, negate, threaten, fearmonger, and destroy some more.
