Kitten Biting Republicans

What does the term Yellow Dog Democrat mean? Well, it usually refers to a Democrat, so loyal to the party, that they would vote for a yellow dog if it were on the ticket.

Kitten Biting RepublicansSo then what do we call Republicans that are so loyal to their party and to the man at the top--the Dear Leader, the Kowboy Koward of Krawford--that they would vote for him no matter what? You surely know the type: Rust-belt Republicans so beholden by the Bu$hCo spin machine that they'll vote against their own economic interests in order to have the illusion of a strong, secure America; Apocalyptic religious rightists that believe Bush heralds the second coming; Extremists of all stripes for whom the term "liberal" equates to "traitor".

These people would vote for Bush even if he went on national television and bit the head off of a live kitten! They're the...Kitten Biting Republicans!


(Though I'd like to take credit for this phrase, I really must share the credit with the The Local Crank who provided the inspiration.)

A new Downing Street Memo reveals that on inaugration day of his fifth term, Bush plans to bite the head off a kitten in celebration of breaking FDR's record for terms in office.
I've coined a phrase! My immortality is assured!
Will it bring him/them as much fame as Ozzy for bitting the head off a bat?

Who? The Local Crank (and me, I 'spose) for thinking of it? Or Bush for doing it? :-)
Great phrase--I'll definitely use it. (I also like the Editors' BTKWB limit, referring to Bush's absolute base--the people who would support him even if he pre-empted Monday Night Football to bind, torture, and kill Wilfred Brimley for his own sexual gratification.)
On the eve of McGovern's ill-fated election, (was Carl Rove around back then?) I asked my grandfather, a self-described Yellow Dog Democrat, who he was voting for. He told me he was just going to close his eyes and pull the lever for McGovern.
Meow, meow, meow, meow, ROAR!
Not sure we can take much more!
Need the truth to come, and how!
Roar, roar, roar, roar, MEOW!

(Sorry... Something came over me. Cute little pictures generally make me silly...:>/...)
station agen,

Brrrr... you just made it freezing in the place!
Friends from Lousiana were visiting us a couple of weeks ago. They're from Lake Charles, which really got hit in Katrina. They said that one co-worker said he didn't care about anything else, as long as the president kept them safe. He was talking about terra, of course. I asked if this person realized that he was in much more danger from the next hurricane than a terrorist attack. Couldn't be reasoned with, apparently. A kitten biting, scared Republican.

Glenda, there was a time in Texas where voting machines had two large levers labeled "Democrat" and "Republican". A pull on either would "vote the ticket". Years later, after "voting the ticket" was struck down by a federal court, the machines where still there with little pieces of tape over the levers. :-)
...said he didn't care about anything else, as long as the president kept them safe.

Yeah, but safe from what? Unwashed, godless, heathen, l'bruls I'd wager.

Straight party ticket voting is still alive and well in Texas, though it mostly favors the GOPhers these days. The old machines seem to be gone, though I can remember voting on one in Bell County as recently as 1994.
Kitten Biting Republicans? I love it, can I borrow it sometime?

BTW, the calico in the picture reminds me of my dear departed Pocahontas, the cat that slept on my shoulder.

Be my guest, Lew. Spread the word.
Oh my god, I LOVE this. LOVE IT. Beautiful. Thank you.
That is a great name for them. I also think Butthead Republicans is a good one.
Echrai, you're very welcome. I hope it sticks. Wouldn't that be something if it got around and we all discovered it popping up here and there!
I thought there already was a term: Rubber Stamp Republican.
"Kitten Biting Republicans? I love it, can I borrow it sometime?"

"Tell your friends. Tell all your friends."

"What are you?"

"I'm a kitten biting Republican!"
I had the weirdest dream last night following this. it was all fairly vague, except for the gorillas climbing trees cuddling kittens and the republican operatives in camo fatigues trying to bite the kittens heads off.
