The GOP Case Against Attorney General Designate, Loretta Lynch, Unravels

Alan: Whatever the GOP's "case" -- whether it's advocacy of torture, Benghazi, Obamacare, "No New Taxes", anorexic austerity, Obama's birth certificate, Ebola freakout, ISIS portrayed as "The End of the World" -- the argument always unravels. 

The Republican Party is delusional. 

Its activities are limited to chasing demons of its own device: every phantasm has its hour "strutting upon the stage," then evanesces like champagne losing its fizz.

American "conservatives," prone to alarmism, chase imaginary hobgoblins. Fearful people by nature, they feel compelled to conjure serial fears (rather like the serial sacrifice of virgins) in order to "justify" their fearfulness, to "prove" that their unhinged assumptions are "right."

"Conservatives Scare More Easily Than Liberals"

Despite their "Christian values," here is what they don't get:

"There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. 
The one who fears is not made perfect in love." 
1 John 4:18

In Reality, the GOP is not playing with a full deck. 

Every trump card is missing.

The G.O.P. case against Loretta Lynch unravels. "The nominee has a long and impressive résumé as a no-nonsense prosecutor, and she managed at Wednesday’s hearing to be both assertive and anodyne in her testimony, expert in the law but opaque about controversial legal matters." The Washington Post
