Will GOP victories in November turn out to be a disaster for conservative Republicans suddenly faced with having to accomplish something? Party leaders are on the hook for undoing presidential actions that are proving spectacularly difficult, if not impossible to get rid of.

There is no better time to give up that dead end career wearing a paper hat and stuffing French fries in bags. Finally, criminals are going to be rewarded for making a worthwhile life choice. They won’t have to worry about the will of the people being heard in Washington and getting in the way of causing pain, property loss, suffering, and death.
Phony, make nice talk and extending hands across a partisan divide too fractured to be crossed are not going to fix the mess Barack Obama has created. Years of inaction, waffling, and neglected policy decisions have done too much damage.

Is political office the last bastion of free speech? Are Americans too naive to recognize the truth behind tacky, cheaply produced campaign ads and the inflammatory free speech they see on social media?

It fits in well with the patronizing package of sanctimony that has been assaulting us from our radios, televisions, and mailboxes this campaign season.
