The Mood on the Left

With the national Republican Party lashed to the twin pillars of the Teahadists and the Fundamentalists, ready to bring the temple down on their own heads (as well as everyone else’s), and with the national Democratic Party in total collapse, gotta love the fighting spirit behind The Donner Party, whose theme-song appears to be Aerosmith’s “Eat the Rich.”

When the Center cannot hold, things fall apart, and what rough beast slouches toward Bethlehem to be born?

Defiant comedy is replacing political discourse, which seems fair enough. The Donner Party’s platform:
About: We will literally eat each other before we give an inch!

Description: The Donner Party is a dog who can bark at a pine cone for nine days and not get tired!

● Tax the rich at 100%

● Federally funded, partial birth abortions at the drive-thru of McDonald's

● Janeane Garofalo must be on the $50 bill!

● No new guns may be produced; Want one? Pry it from someone's cold dead hands

● Not only must gay history be taught in public schools, but gay math as well

● Jesus was just a guy & if you so much as thank him for a touchdown, the state will take your children

● Free college, healthcare & 6 weeks paid vacation for ALL!
