Three Reasons Why the Republican Party Is Troubled

  1. The leader of the party, Speaker of the House John Boehner, is a public drunk and has been for a long time. He is incapable of negotiation rationally with the President because he is so often in his cups.
  2. The Radical Wing (Tea Party) terrifies more rational Republicans who are afraid to negotiate or even appear to be seen talking to Democrats.
  3. A majority of the party is openly misogynistic, they believe women's reproductive systems ought to be owned by the state and that violence against women is often appropriate.
There are a score of other reasons, including their xenophobia, but these three are their biggest.

They have so many problems that it is hard to decide which are the three worst. For example, they seem to believe that people who cannot afford health care should not get it.

Boehner is the guy who corners you at a party after one too many drinks and openly weeps about his friends treat him.

I mean, I don't blame him for crying: He's an awful Speaker and his job is to convince rabid dogs to walk in straight lines.

But I don't want to hear about it at the party.
