I’m not surprised Charlie Copeland has no thoughts in his head regarding the Republican engineered clusterf*ck the country just endured. All Greenville Republicans should be cowering embarrassed in the corner of their mansions. They let their party turn in to the party of lunacy. The party of climate change denial and default denial. The party of “We can’t win at the ballot box, so let’s fuck shit up.” It is natural and fitting that Copeland would have no comment to make on the latest Republican assholery. I suspect his next comment will be on how the ACA isn’t working as planned. That’s a nice safe position for Republicans to hold right now. There will always be anecdotes, carefully collected and distributed by Heritage Action, for them to shed crocodile tears over.
If he commented on the insane default brinksmanship, even with a meek, “both sides need to work together” statement he would only establish himself as a target for the Sussex County assholes that he ultimately works for. And yet, it is inevitable that he is going to be a target for the assholes. So what does he have to lose? Why not take this opportunity to try and educate the psychos – at least a little bit? A voice for the normal working of good government is exactly what the GOP needs right now. Not taking a principled stand on his party’s desire to court calamity only stalls the inevitable and reveals Copeland for the coward that he is.
