Republican Party

Purple-fingered GOP tonight? Oh good Lord.

Rumor has it, from D.C. Inside Scoop via Eschaton, that Congressional Republicans will appear at the State of the Onion tonight sporting purple fingers.

This is how they show solidarity with the Iraqi people after killing 100,000 of them? Perhaps clean running water, electricity, and not torturing and murdering them would be a better display of support. Then again, maybe the Iraqi voters will appreciate being associated with millionaire white guys who (not so) secretly desire to pillage their homeland for the cause of oil and politics.

No word on whether the Republicans will have yellow ribbon magnets glued to their asses while applauding Bush's veterans benefits cuts.
