From the land beyond parody comes news that Rep. Tom Price (R-GA) and 75 other House Republicans have introduced a resolution “expressing gratitude and appreciation to the individuals and families who participated in the Taxpayer March on Washington on September 12, 2009.”
Presumably they’ll also be honoring the advocates for gay rights who did the same thing a few weeks ago, not to mention the Iraq war protesters.
But this is where the Republican party is right now, every minimal expenditure of energy warrants endless kudos and pats on the head. It’s like dealing with a slow child. It reminds me of one of my favorite lines from Annie Hall:
Alvy Singer on Hollywood: “What’s with all these awards? They’re always giving out awards. Best Fascist Dictator: Adolf Hitler.”
