why GOP wins sometimes, imho

It is sort of amazing that republicans win at all, they are constantly exposing themselves as either idiots or awful mean people or both.

I think they reason they win sometimes is that they will all stick together and toe the line and agree to anything even if they know it isn't true. They will stick to it.

We, on the other hand, will argue about any damn thing. Look at DU. People are constantly looking for nuance of some story and trying to communicate different points of view. Republicans, man, they think what they are supposed to think.

I know I am over simplifying. I also know that by posting this to a bunch of democrats that most people will disagree with something about it.

I think that it is more healthy to have different opinions and hash them out rather than fall in line like a bunch of authoritarians, but I think it helps them "win." Like most of you, I learn more from people I don't agree with than from people I already agree with. I learn more from listening than from talking most of the time. But I don't think "they" are interested in "learning."

We should have like a safe word. A like "time to circle the wagons" signal.

NRA Coolers

a while ago ProfessorGAC posted that the NRA offered to send a free cooler to new members.

Way, way after the fact, while driving to town this morning, my subconscious mind finally broke through with the joke. Timing is everything.

Q: What do you call an NRA cooler?
A: A "Nyetti"
