Fail of the week

The GOP is considering having a purity test to see who's really a republican and who isnt. the test goes off of the logic of former president Ronald Reagan who considered someone who agreed with him 8 out 10 times a friend. the test consists of ten principles which will be listed below

(1) Smaller government, smaller national debt, lower deficits and lower taxes by opposing bills like Obama’s “stimulus” bill
(2) Market-based health care reform and oppose Obama-style government run healthcare;
(3) Market-based energy reforms by opposing cap and trade legislation;
(4) Workers’ right to secret ballot by opposing card check
(5) Legal immigration and assimilation into American society by opposing amnesty for illegal immigrants;
(6) Victory in Iraq and Afghanistan by supporting military-recommended troop surges;
(7) Containment of Iran and North Korea, particularly effective action to eliminate their nuclear weapons threat
(8) Retention of the Defense of Marriage Act;
(9) Protecting the lives of vulnerable persons by opposing health care rationing and denial of health care and government funding of abortion; and
(10) The right to keep and bear arms by opposing government restrictions on gun ownership

now that you've read the principles here comes the fail train

It turns out that republican God and former president(also the guy in charge the last time unemployment was this high) Ronald Reagan would've failed the test and failed extra hard. Keith Olbermann explains below
