'G.O.P. = Gridlock, Obstruction & Paralysis' Meme Gets Legs
Well, OK, it's not like major traction. But J.P. Green's post title "G.O.P. = Gridlock, Obstruction & Paralysis" did win a coveted Upper Left Blogspot "Acronym of the Day" designation, which gives us enough of an excuse to re-post the equation. Green's post title did get some other play, including fleeting mentions in a couple dozen web pages, including WSJ and USAToday search pages. The larger point is "gridlock," "obstruction" and "paralysis" are three words that are being mentioned with increasing frequency in the same sentence with "G.O.P," along with phrases like "The Party of No" and "The Party of Obstruction." Worthy designations all. If anyone has a more apt short description for what the Republican Party of the 21st century stands for, we welcome your suggestions.
