GOP Brain Scan

December 13, 2008

U.S. Senate Republicans made quite a spectacle in 2005, trying unsuccessfully to prevent comatose Terri Shiavo from getting unplugged from life support. Their rallying cry: celebrate the culture of life. Now they’ve blocked efforts to help automakers stave off financial collapse, potentially costing hundreds of thousands of people their jobs.

In other words, the GOP fought to keep alive a woman in a “persistent vegetative state” and blocked saving the livelihoods of families across the country.

Increasingly, the Republican Party looks brain dead.
