How many factorials of doubling down are they up to now?

There's nothing so refreshing as hearing a right-wing operative pull out the kind of terminology you'd expect from some 1930s German-technocrat defending the T-4 program:
Conservative commentator Mary Matalin hailed Mitt Romney’s “47 percent” line on CNN as good news for Republicans.

“There are makers and takers, there are producers and there are parasites,” she said. “Americans can distinguish between those who have produced and paid in through no fault of their own and because of Obama’s horrible policies who cannot get a job or are underemployed. That’s what the campaign is about.”
"Parasites"?

That will really turn this around for Mittens -- are you or are you not a PARASITE?!

Awesome.

I'm thinking that most people would like to eliminate harmful parasites. To reduce so much of the population to vermin in need of elimination sounds so familiar. Where have I heard that before? Where o where?

Oh yeah, Nazi propaganda about the Jewish parasite problem. That didn't turn out so well.

I should have finished my thought. First you gets the propaganda then you gets the programs.

Now I have some parasite business to attend to.

And what exactly does Matalin produce?

Bile doesn't count.

What does Matalin's comment even MEAN?

"Americans can distinguish between those who have produced and paid in through no fault of their own and because of Obama’s horrible policies who cannot get a job... "

Seriously, I can't even figure out what she's talking about here. Is she embracing the unemployed? Are there good, Republican unemployed and bad, not-Republican unemployed?

9:30, to your last question, EXACTLY!! Yes, you heard the blaring dog whistle correctly.

Are there good, Republican unemployed ...

Yes, and they all wear good, Republican, cloth coats.

Apologies for the 60-year-old reference

Mary Matalin of course thinks that being a DC professional liar and worthless barnacle growing rich on our diseased political industry, doesn't make her a parasite.

Seems to me that the Repugs have pretty much given up on winning hearts and minds.
