This Isn't American Idol – We're Just Pretending It Is

Abby Zimet

The Party of Ideas, having run out of them, has launched America Speaking Out, a new GOP website whereby we the people are urged to say what we think about the issues of the day, and they will listen. The site makes for some hilarious, frightening, heartbreaking reading. Suggested under "American Values": the death penalty for both selling products made in other countries and teaching anything other than abstinence, display the 10 Commandments on every building, and "give up on being the party of racists, thugs and torturers." Under "National Security": "the  secret rocket in space" and our favorite, "If one of your socks gets a hole in it, throw it away
but keep the other one." Oh yeah: Think Progress notes that Republicans aren't really listening, anyway.
