08:24 pm: GOP Dress code
Wow, the dress code for the Grand 'Ol Party has suddenly gotten stylish and traditional at the same time.

But yet, has that slight whiff of fun loving national socialist. 

And why don't I vote republican, again?  Ah, yes, now I remember...  douche-bag.

The article states the group in question prints serious historical revisionism on their pages, mainly that they pretend they are dressing up as members of a bastion of selfless, freedom-loving heroes, and not a bunch of murderers whose goal was the enslavement and ethnic cleansing of Eastern Europe.

As to it "just" being LARP...well, play-acting a Nazi? Really? That's a deeply disturbing thing to LARP. And then play-acting a *nice* Nazi? Are they fucking kidding? That's like dressing up and pretending to be a pedophile or rapist on the weekends as "good, clean fun".

I don't think anyone disputes that it's kinda the definition of political suicide.

Can you imagine how he would explain that picture in an attack ad?

Oh, wait...

ROFL. You have no clue how funny that was. Just none.
