“What we don’t have time for is all that petty, punk ass, little thuggery stuff that’s been goin’ on with these quote-unquote protesters who are doin’ nothin’ but wastin’ your time.” – American Tea Party darling and former Republican vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin.
A Brief Commentary by Doug Draper
Posted March 15th, 2016 on Niagara At Large
I once took great issue with Evangelical Christians calling Darwin’s Theory of Evolution a bunch of unholy bunk that shouldn’t be taught to young people in our schools.
But maybe they’re right. When you look at what is happening with the Republicans these days in the U.S presidential race, I’m beginning to believe that a stronger case could be made for devolution, if not total fossilization.
How else do you go from George Washington and Thomas Jefferson to Abe Lincoln, Franklin Delano Roosevelt, then onward and downward through Richard Nixon and George W. Bush, and finally to this recent spectacle of Tea Party goddess Sarah Palin stumping for billionaire, reality TV celebrity and Republic presidential frontrunner Donald Trump? All while being cheered on by tthrongs of what Trump is fond of calling the “under-educated.”
