Emerging meme – the Replicrats

A hell of a lot of talk time, blogsphere and column time suddenly being devoted to the idea that there is no serious difference between the political parties. In spite of the sputterings of the endlessly annoying Dick Cheney.

So let me jump aboard. Since they rinse and repeat each other’s hair, let us call them all . . . the Replicrats!

  1. cool humor, Moe.

    People group up to fight for …?!

    did you invent the name yourself?

    sweet dreams, happy 2010.


  2. What’s a meme? Is it a real word?


    • Of course it is! I didn’t make this one up.

      meme (n.) a cultural item that is transmitted by repetition in a manner analogous to the biological transmission of genes,

      meme (n.) A unit of cultural information, such as a cultural practice or idea, that is transmitted verbally or by repeated action from one mind to another.


  3. I have to agree somewhat. I think we need to clear out the entire Congress … (at least every incumbent). Though talk about ‘annoying’… this lunatic is the epitome of annoying:


    • So we may trust that you want to curl up on a cold winter night with Olbermann about as much as I’d like to with Cheney. Okay.


    • By the way, Steve, a few weeks back Dick Cheney, former VP of the US, on public television, accused the sitting president of the US of aiding and abeting the enemy, which by constitutional definition IS treason. And there’s no equivalency in what a partisan teevee talker says versus what a former vice president says. Not the same at all.


  4. Yes, “aiding and abeting the enemy” IS treason. I’m with you 100%.

    I just wanted to point out how annoying Olbermann is. (at least to me)


    • I’ll tell you something; when Olbermann came on the air, I and my liberal friends were just thrilled. We’d never experienced a partisan liberal with a whole show of his own. Just loved it; wouldn’t miss it. But eventually, after a few years, he became the mirror image of Hannity – all faux outrage and all spinning the hell out of everything. I still agree with him most of the time in policy terms, but I don’t watch him much anymore. Outrage I can support, but not outrage over every little thing.
