I don’t know if you have ever had the addictive pleasure of playing Farkle, but it reminds me of the tactics of the Far Right these days.
Farkle is a dice game where you try to roll combinations with 6 dice. As you take dice out to score points, your chances of rolling a non-scoring result (a Farkle) increase. However if you can manage to use up all your dice, you get to start all over and keep scoring until you decide to bank your score or you roll a Farkle.
It seems to me that what the Far Right continues to do is roll the crazy bones scoring here (health care), scoring there (education speech), and continuing to roll until they get a Farkle. I think tonight might have been the Farkle moment.
During President Obama’s speech to Congress tonight, Republican Representative Joe Wilson from South Carolina, called the President a liar. Has it really come to this?
This guy needs to be censured.
