Who is we?

The people of the GOP do not know what GOP means.

The latest Vanity Fair/CBS News poll asked Americans what the abbreviation GOP means, and 49% of Republicans got it wrong.

  13. Is this the civil tone our illustrious President has said he wishes to see in this great country ? Sounds like dangerous rhetoric to me . One of those smelly hippies , camped out and blocking traffic on Wall Street might be inspired to commit violence.

    Everyone knows that GOP stands for Goodhearted Obedible Pacifists .

  14. Obedible – now there is an archaic word and I can guarantee you are the only one here who knew what it meant. I had to go to a dictionary.

    Obedient.

    OK, that tracks with “the old saying about candidates: “Republicans fall in line, Democrats fall in love”
