The Actual 21st Century Republican Philosophy

From Raw Story:

A Republican Nevada state assemblyman said that he would vote for legislation in favor of slavery if his constituents wanted him to. According to the Las Vegas Sun, Jim Wheeler of Gardnerville, NV was speaking to the Storey County Republican Party when he made the remarks last August, although they are only now coming to light.

“If that’s what they wanted, I’d have to hold my nose, I’d have to bite my tongue and they’d probably have to hold a gun to my head, but yeah, if that’s what the citizens of the, if that’s what the constituency wants that elected me, that’s what they elected me for,” he said. “That’s what a republic is about.”

Future slaves couldn’t be reached for comment as to what they think a republic is about.

As an aside….

Why did Raw Story choose to run a photo of Don Rickles with that item?

And how did they get Don Rickles to wear a sub-Dollar General suit and an amusement park cowboy hat?
