The Top 5 Most Embarrassing Moments for Conservatives in 2013

rick-perry-txThis list might very well be one of the harder ones to do.  After all, there’s just so many to choose from — only picking five was very difficult.

Throughout 2013, Republicans continued their march toward full-blown insanity.  They reached such high levels of ridiculousness that I often found myself having to put disclaimers on quite a few of my articles, declaring that the following content was not satire.

That being said, here are five of my personal favorite moments from 2013 where Republicans made complete fools of themselves.

Yes — only five.  I’m trying to limit the length for the sake of time and also to keep this article from being several pages long.  Because if we’re being honest, Republicans had countless embarrassing moments this past year.

So, let’s get started!

#5: Ted Cruz gets asked what his alternative to “Obamacare” is, makes a total fool out of himself as he’s unable to answer the question: 

#4: A poll done just a couple of months ago showed more Louisiana Republicans blamed Obama for Katrina than Bush: 

#3: Florida Governor Rick Scott passes legislation worded so poorly that it bans all computers in the state: 

#2: A conservative group in Kansas actually tried suing to remove science from schools, claiming it was unconstitutional: 

#1: Texas Governor Rick Perry vetoes bipartisan “Buy American” bill approved by every Texas House representative: 

And there you have it ladies and gentlemen, my five favorite most embarrassing moments for conservatives in 2013.  I know, I didn’t get anywhere close to covering all of them, but that list would be almost endless.

But there’s good news — 2014 is almost upon us, which means we’ll have plenty more embarrassing moments for conservatives that we’ll be able to talk about.

With tea party Republicans on full attack against established members of the GOP, I’m predicting 2014 might be one of the most ridiculous years for the Republican party yet.
