The first shots in this war were fired in 2010. 2014 will be the year that the massed armies finally spill onto the battlefield for real and take back the party from the decrepit, tired cronies who’ve regarded it as their own for decades.
The RINOsaurs will try to fight, but they will do no better against these small, quick, smart enemies than the dinosaurs themselves did. The great lizards of old died when the climate changed. The Gentry GOP lizards today will die for exactly the same reaon – the climate in which they waxed and grew fat has changed.
