If you’ve been paying attention then you know the Republicans recently unveiled their “A Pledge to America” as an outline of what they hope to accomplish if they manage to regain control of Congress in November. If you’re old enough to remember when the Republicans unveiled their “Contract with America” back in 1994 then you may be thinking that the title of this new plan sounds eerily familiar.
As Jon Stewart points out there’s a good reason for that feeling:

Meet the New Republicans. Exactly the same as the Old Republicans. They have nothing new to offer. They only have the same old bullshit that got us into this mess to begin with. As unhappy as I am with the rate of progress and just plain-old general pussy-ness of the Democrats, the Republicans are only offering to go back to fucking us over every way they can if we’re stupid enough to put them back into power. They even admit that they’ve not changed one bit since they got their asses handed to them in 2008. Not only to they intend to continue with the same stupid policies, but they’re bringing their crazy Tea Party friends along for the ride this time around.
Is that really what you want?
