The “Good” Republicans Kill Conservatism

Based Upon a Poem by Bertolt Brecht

Why We Need Great Republicans Not "Good" Ones.

Why We Need Great Republicans Not “Good” Ones.

Step forward, Senators McCain and Graham: we hear
That you are good men.

You cannot be bought,
But only because the McCain-Feingold Law prohibits those who would spend their money to inform the electoral process from speaking.

You hold to what you said.
But what did you say?
Or do you even deign to address those who you consider to be silly, or hobbits?

You are honest, Senator Graham.
You say your opinion. Which opinion?
Which of your constituents do you consider to be bigots?
How will you make them shut up, Senator Graham?

You are brave, Senator Graham. Against whom?
Certainly not John Brennan or Eric Holder.

You are wise, Senator McCain.
For whom?
Certainly not the “Wacko birds” in your own party.

You do not consider personal advantages.
Whose advantages do you consider then?
The citizens of the very country you self-righteously claim to put first?

Senator Graham; you are a good friend, of Senator McCain’s. Are you also a good friend of the good people?

Hear us then Senator Graham: we in the Libertarian and Conservative Grass Roots know.
You are our enemy. This is why we shall
Now put you in front of a good primary.

And how would your good friend Barack Obama treat you?
We know how he would use you to help him deal with Conservatism as an ideology.
Brecht explains below.

We shall put you in front of a good wall and shoot you
With a good bullet from a good gun and bury you
With a good shovel in the good earth.

And this is why we need to stop supporting and reelecting Good Republicans like Senators McCain and Graham. We need great Republicans like Rand Paul and Ted Cruz instead.

And since I ripped off poor Bertolt Brecht to a fare thee well for this blog post, here’s a link to “The Interrogation of The Good.”
