Republican duct tape

February 21, 2014

Republican Congressman Phil Roe has figured out the problem Republican candidates have in general elections. And even proposed a fix:

I would suggest, when we nominate people, we give them a roll of duct tape to put over their mouths so they don’t say stupid things. Maybe we can win an election.

The only problem then is how such candidates keep safe in a primary against a Tea party challenger? Candidates like Todd Akin and Sharron Angle won their primaries by saying stupid things. Their general election losses are the ones Roe bemoans. I guess the duct tape goes on the day after the primary election?
