May the Farce Be with You

After the Senate vote to confirm Alito's appointment to the Supreme Court, the Republicans held a news conference. Were they smug? Natch. Were they happy? Sorta. Were they whining about winning? Why, yes! It seems despite the fact they had successfully vanquished Harriet Miers and Bush replaced her with someone that put the gleam back in Brownback's eyes, the poor Republicans were victims.

More evidence of the GOP's Culture of Victimhood from DU's Top Ten Conservative Idiots:

Hunkered down at a retreat intended to help them regain their footing after a corruption scandal and a leadership shake-up, about 180 lawmakers were treated to a film spoof that portrayed Republicans as the "Star Wars" heroes being pursued by the evil Democratic empire led by "Darth Nancy." That would be Representative Nancy Pelosi of California, the House Democratic leader.

"After a decade of exile, the evil Democratic empire has created their most fearsome henchman to date, a mighty machine built to regain the majority once and for all," said the text that scrolled at the opening of the parody, which superimposed Ms. Pelosi's face on the movie villain.

You have to be kidding me - the party that currently rules the Senate, the House, and the White House; the party which is literally attempting to create an American empire run by an unaccountable, all-powerful president, is portraying themselves as the poor, downtrodden victims of the party which has no power whatsoever in Congress?

May the farce be with you.
