I don’t watch Rachel Maddow (or much TV of any kind) on a regular basis, but sometimes I really enjoy the things she talks about. Plus I really like her guest, Ezra Klein. This segment is hilarious. It documents recent complete about-faces performed by Republican politicians. Yes, they really perform impossible flip-flops, sometimes in real time!
Watch House Speaker John Boehner say he supports background checks for all gun buyers, and then moments later change his mind, all on camera! See Ohio Governor John Kasich declare loudly he supports civil unions, and then clarify that he actually opposes them. And the biggest example, Rand Paul introducing legislation that would outlaw abortions without exception (no chance for a misstatement here!) and then turn around and say that there would be “thousands of exceptions” and that it should be a private conversation between a woman and her doctor. My head is still spinning!
