As their passive aggressive apology was saying

The other day "Teen Beat on the Hudson" reported that a group of "young Republican Activists" unleased a study demonstrating that the GOP needs to get over the bigotry so they can move on to the important task of grinding the poor into a fine paste.

The "tomorrow belongs to Me" faction noted in particular:
Big reason for the image problem: The “outrageous statements made by errant Republican voices.”
The problem is those errant voices are pretty much the majority of prominent Republicans in the House or Senate. To wit:
Sen. Saxby Chambliss (R-GA) on Tuesday suggested that the “hormone level created by nature” was to blame for rapes in the military and that all pregnant servicewomen should be investigated to make sure their condition was the result of consensual sex.
Yes, oh those women making men all rapey -- it's just nature. I'm sure the younger demographic is wild about that logic.

Kudos on the "tomorrow belongs to me" reference to the melodious singing voices of the Hitler Youth in, I believe, "The Sound of Music". What an incredibly apt comparison; just brilliant!

"Errant Republican voices", like their presidential candidate, former Vice President, former Defense Secretary, Senate Minority Leader, Speaker of the House, House Majority Leader and most popular political radio show host. You know, just minor characters on the fringe.

(Just sneaking in to note that "Tomorrow Belongs To Me" is from "Cabaret.")

what is it about these men like chamblis who can't read? one visit to the head on any navy base and he'd be forced to read the entirety of the ucmj. it should be updated, yes, but it definately outlines that rape is a courtmartialable offense.

but i guess reading and "morals" and all that actual reality stuff is a bit difficult for republicans in general.

and perhaps that would be why they can't recognize they are all outrageous nuts.
