In his book (also a movie) The Rainmaker, a novice attorney takes on an insurance case. A sleazy health insurance company repeatedly denies a legitimate claim that a mother keeps submitting for her son's lung illness (from which he eventually dies). At one point a heartless claims dept. VP writes a letter to the mother berating her over the denied claim, saying "You must be stupid, stupid, stupid."
Not only is the portrayal of the insurance company's attitude timely, but — ironically — his terse statement so totally applies to the House Repugnican Caucus.
42 votes to repeal or defund the AFA. 0 votes on jobs. Stupid. Stupid. Stupid.
When I see words like Repugnicans, Teapublicans etc. - all great - I still wish there was a word that is basically accurate, and vaguely snobbish and dismissive like the Goppers have: the Democrat Party. They can use it in public, with a sneer and still claim a veneer of respectability, while villifying at the same time.
