Stupidparty Math v. Myth: Unmasking the Destructive Forces Eroding American Democracy relies on publicly available facts, resources and tools to deconstruct and relentlessly drill down on the numerous misconceptions held by too many Republicans. Substantiated by more than 1,500 hyperlinks to authoritative resources, readers will find:
- Stupidparty positions defrocked on: the "Moochers", the economy, climate change, environmental stewardship, racism, religion, "Freedoms", guns, and ignorance-based humor.
- The fallacy of Fox News facts exposed, documented, and explained.
Once thoughtful, discerning Americans understand the destructive forces manipulating their views, they will begin to call for a stop to the stupidity that has invaded our politics and poisoned our political process. The eradication of Stupid from the Stupidparty is the first step.
This book does not set out to destroy the Republican Party. The U.S. needs at least two parties. But by exposing the abundance of Myth with the relentless use of Math and facts, the problems and then the solutions become self-evident.
“A disillusioned conservative delivers a spirited critique of the Republican Party’s deterioration since George W. Bush’s presidency. . . . a rollicking ride” —Kirkus Reviews
“A brilliant book, complete with clickable details to verify the author’s veracity.”
—Thom Hartmann, New York Times best-selling author of The Crash of 2016 and nationally syndicated radio show host
Suppose you were an idiot. And suppose you were a Republican. But I repeat myself.
It’s not me, it’s them
“‘We’ve got to stop being the stupid party,’ Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal, one of the GOP’s brightest young stars, said in a much-anticipated speech last week at the party’s winter meeting.
‘We’ve got to stop insulting the intelligence of voters. We need to trust the smarts of the American people.’”
Mark Mardell, North American editor for BBC News

“Are Republicans the ‘stupid party’?”

(“So much for shedding the ‘stupid party’ label”):
“If the GOP intends to stop being, in Bobby Jindal’s words, the ‘stupid party,’ they have a long way to go.”
(“The Grand Old Party is stuck on stupid”):
“Following two presidential election defeats in 2008 and 2012, the Republican Party is still making the same mistakes. Stupid is as stupid does and, apparently, the Republican Party didn’t get Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal’s ‘stupid memo’ because it looks dumber by the day. After losing the 2012 presidential election the ‘GOP establishment’ from former Mississippi governor Haley Barbour to former GOP House Speaker Newt Gingrich and every white man in between acknowledged that the party must make ‘the tent’ more welcoming to minorities and women—where the votes increasingly are. So what does the GOP do? It keeps headlining white men behaving badly.”

(“Embracing the ‘Stupid Party’ Label”):
“If Michelle Obama took up the cause of literacy, Palin would recommend watching more Honey Boo Boo.”
“Republicans used to admire intelligence. But now they’re dumbing themselves down.”
The Atlantic senior editor
(“To Stop Being the Party of Stupid You Must Stop Being Stupid”):
“If you are not around people who will look at you like you are crazy when you make stupid claims about other people’s experiences, then you tend to keep saying stupid things about other people’s experiences. It is not enough to pay a political price, or even to be shamed into silence. You have to come to believe—in your heart—that sincerity itself is not the same as accurate information. It is not enough for you to not be ‘the party of stupid’ or to ‘stop saying stupid things’[;] you must show some active commitment toward being less stupid.”
Augusta Chronicle (letter to)
(“GOP still ‘the stupid party’”):
“In looking at the last GOP primary, that is what it had in Rick Perry, Rick Santorum, Herman Cain and the poster child for stupidity, Michele Bachmann. . . . How can a party with members who [deny] global warming, evolution and rape pregnancies turn itself around when this is what so many of its voters want? . . . The language of ‘stupid’ is epitomized by the phrase ‘socialist* agenda.’ Recently the words ‘nullification’ and ‘secession’ also have entered its vocabulary.”

(“Here’s an Idea for the GOP: Stop Lionizing Stupidity”):
“In a related vein, when Bubba Jo Suggs and Nathan Bedford Forrest Jr. show up at your CPAC workshop on racial diversity and proceed to sing the glories of the Confederacy, crow about ‘White Culture’ and the threat that minorities pose to the White Race, and pine for the days when the Peculiar Institution kept all them grateful banjo-playing darkies fed and housed, you don’t allow them to throw your workshop into chaos and direct most of your ire at the horrified African American lady in the house. You throw these Klan Klowns out and make clear that there is no room whatsoever for this filthy bigotry.”
MSNBC, Morning Joe:
“I’m tired of Republicans being the ‘Stupidparty.’”
* When an idiot says “socialist,” what does an idiot mean? What is the benchmark—is it North Korea or is it Sweden? Is it The UK or is it Massachusetts?
Kay Bailey Hutchison
“Republican senator of Texas, who’s retiring after this year, said Thursday the personal beliefs of some Republicans dampened her party’s focus on the economy this election year. ‘We had Republican candidates who got very high profile and said some very stupid things.’”
