Conservatives' Next Move Will Be To Burn John Boehner In A Large Wicker Statue
The base thinks their party has lost its commitment to core principles. Boehner has deeply disappointed them by refusing to push for a cutoff of Planned Parenthood funding, refusing to fight against Obama's healthcare and immigration policies, and by failing to provide the blood-offering for the old gods of wood and glen. People over at the Federalist and Red State think he needs to pay the price.
Tea Partiers believe the time has come to get tough. They're not going to win over the left by giving in to politically correct notions like accepting same sex marriage and rejecting ritual human sacrifice. And sure, the NPR crowd might get upset when the video of John Boehner screaming pitifully over the crackle of a roaring fire and Druidic chanting hits YouTube. But anyone who worries about that sort of thing is a RINO. McCain came out against killing people in flaming Wicker Men. McCain. Doesn't that say it all?
The party held power for decades by appealing to the traditional values of the American voter. And those values are fear and crippling superstition. Incinerating their former Speaker of the House to appease a collection of shadowy nature spirits might not make sense to those eggheads who believe in evolution, global warming, and the scientific method. but your average Republican knows in his guts that it's exactly what this party, and this country, both need.
Why? Because this is a Christian nation, damnit.
