But in my opinion, the Republican agenda — even the basic beltway GOP agenda — is batshit. “Small government, local government, free markets, and individual liberty” are euphemisms for irresponsible and grossly unfair policies that have no place in the modern world. In my opinion. So when I say Republican ideas are batshit, that’s what I mean.
There you have it. Violet, those are not just Stupid Party agenda items; there's an awful lot of people who are members of the Evil Party who believe in the same things, and not as 'euphimisms' for anything; they believe those are important things.
I'm writing this without knowing what she considers them euphemisms for; I've written asking. I'll be curious to see what she says.
