I mean, isn't this horrendous? I... I...
I CAN'T TAKE IT ANYMORE! You peeps are worthless. I announce my renunciation of the Democrat Party now, and I have no other choice but to join the Republicans! Why should I be part of some co-opted, worthless minority... When I can be part of the MAJORITY?! Yes, I've had it with you libs. I can't take any more of all this nonsense that you commie-loving, terrorist-sympathizing, San Francisco Sodomite pinkos any longer! If my good friend Mike Lawson can sell out, then so can I! I'm joining Jubal/Matt Cunningham and the GOP consultants in the good fight for free markets and free choice (unless, of course, you choose to be a homosexual or allow women equal rights... Remember that freedom isn't free.)
I've had it. I'm leaving to join the force of godliness, and of family values, and of the true spirit of our GREAT LEADER RONALD REAGAN! OC Republican Party, here I come!
WAR IS PEACE. FREEDOM IS SLAVERY. IGNORANCE IS STRENGTH.
