The resolution is, it will be recalled, the brainchild of one James Bopp, Jr., who is currently retained to defend the beleaguered Wisconsin judge Michael Gableman against State ethics charges.
When asked if such a resolution would force Republican National Committee Chairman Michael Steele to use that label when talking about Democrats in all his speeches and press releases, an RNC member replied: "Who cares?"You'd think the GOP might be a little more concerned with its own sense of party unity in advance of a ridiculous attempt to tar its opponents as a bunch of Marxist-Leninists. But no.
Meanwhile the leader of the actual Democratic Socialists of America, Frank Llewellyn, appears to have a much firmer grip on rudimentary political theory than does the zany James Bopp:
"It’s objectionable," said Llewellyn, "because they’re giving socialism a bad name by associating it with the Democrats, who are the second-most capitalist party in the world. The election of this president, sadly, hasn’t changed that."Washington Independent
