Everybody always says Republicans are uncool, out of step. They’re old, they’re white. Face it, they have no rhythm.
(I understand that I am likening Republicans to Khan, which is not nice, and I apologize. But he is genetically superior to Kirk and Spock and everybody else — plus he was played by the awesome Ricardo Montalban, so that’s nice, too.)
…lots of “what the fuck?” is he talking about words in between….
This may be the real reason the GOP needs more women and blacks and Hispanics. Because, in the words of those great political philosophers, the Go-Gos, those Democratic constituencies ‘got the beat, they got the beat, they got the beat. Yeah — they got the beat.’
