When the top spokespeople for your party are Sarah Palin and Rick Perry. where did you drink the flavor-aid, Tea party?

my dad’s Facebook status—only edited to add proper punctuation in certain areas

First of all, can I say that I love that my dad now actually speaks out against the GOP, after years of acting like they were the shit?  (Even as a liberal, he would vote for Republicans.) I spent the years between the time I first realized that he was a Republican (when I was about 15 or 16) and his conversion to being a Democrat (almost 10 years later) telling him that even though he hated Dixiecrats that the party wasn’t full of ignorant assholes who wanted to oppress black folks anymore.  I also pointed out, in that time, that the Republican party had become the party that endorsed hatred.  Apparently, my nagging nature finally got to him.  Either that or being on disability and having to deal with the GOP constantly bashing folks who are on any form of welfare made him realize that he was not now nor had he ever been a real Republican.

Secondly, I love that I have been such a bad influence on him that he has begun to say the proper term of Flavor Aid.  (People use the term Kool Aid, even though the Jonestown massacre was a forced ingestion of Flavor Aid, thus making it a massacre instead of a mass suicide.)
