This animated gif really does encapsulate the current state of the GOP

A fun little animated gif from Sarah Parnass that really does encapsulate the past few weeks for the Republicans.

At a press conference the other day, devoted to yet another of their brilliant new hashtags – #time4solutions – tragedy struck the Republican party.

Of course, one man’s tragedy is another’s comedy gold.

Philip Bump over at the Atlantic Wire has a whole collection of the best moments of the GOP government shutdown. Do check them out.

And a reader sent another that also truly encapsulates the hubris of the GOP – this one possibly courtesy of sbnation.com:

    Couldn’t be Barney. Not one mention of liking anyone but the 0.01% who buy then foil tri-corner hats from Party City in bulk.

    There’s no way the amount of carbon in the air that needs to be turned back into a solid form can be used in a consumer’s market. As much as that’s a neat idea, I believe we, the planet, need to think about it as toxic waste and sequester it as we do with nuclear waste. The carbon being added in the air came from solid form, shale, or in sequestered pockets, underground/undersea oil, so it needs to be returned to such a dormant state and out of the natural carbon cycle.

    No it’s not.

    That’s pretty cool. There was no mention of how feasible it would be in terms of cost, and what the catalyst is and how abundant it is. Not to mention the long-term durability of the plastic. But if it works out, it could be a game-changer.

    Tonight the state of the GOP-TP: anger, fear, anxiety and big time . . .

    I’m sorry, I can’t believe that without photographic evidence. Though, if true, would probably really rapture Michele after years with Marcus.

    White kerchief that is large enough to become flag-sized when needed to show surrender.

    I think you meant “slight Orange damage.”

    Sale in aisle 5 on orange kerchiefs, slight water damage.

    When did they start making flags look like cardboard so they were neatly displayed? Anyone remember the kerfuffel about flags displayed by Democrats (?) that got everyone on a neat freakazoid thing with the US Flag? ;o)

    Ohhh owe….poor Red Thing…is it on skates?

    Off topic, but could this be used to sequester carbon and methane, if the result is a net carbon negative from incoming carbon and methane vs. amount needed to run the plant?

    The quote from Boehner and the photo are both from Huffpo. Boehner said, “We just didn’t win.”
    As for the photo, I’m at a loss for words:
