In other news, GOP presidential candidate and fire and brimstone cultist Mike Huckabee says sometimes "the best way to deal with a nonviolent criminal behavior" is slavery. Really.

Meanwhile, Alabama Governor Robert Bentley wants you to stop describing his racist policy as racist.

"They are wrong on this issue," said Bentley. "Everyone can get a license and everyone can get a voter ID. They (critics) really don't have anything to talk about. It's politics at its worst. And it's race politics at its worst."

Yes, telling everyone they need a Voter ID and then closing the DMVs in black communities is "race politics at its worst."

Finally, a Republican conference call centered on rules for the next primary debate hosted by CNBC apparently erupted into chaos this afternoon, to put it lightly.

A strategist for Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) said the candidate might not attend without opening and closing remarks. Rand Paul aide Chris LaCivita responded: "If we don't have opening and closing statements, CNBC can go fuck themselves."

Other campaign representatives chimed in, declaring the conference call a "debacle."

Republicans can't even handle a conference call with each other, how the fuck are they going to choose a Speaker of the House?

    This is just becoming a rule of American life:

    Republicans gather; hilarity ensues.

    Republicans can’t even handle a conference call with each other, how the fuck are they going to choose a Speaker of the House?

    If they can’t even select a leader for their own party, why should anyone look to them to select a leader for the country?
