I am worried: Cornered Republicans are at their most dangerous

This is a bad time to be a Republican. The two things they planned to campaign on, Benghazi and Obamacare, are blowing up in their faces. We're starting to see Obamacare's problems are almost all due to Republican obstructionism: if they hadn't told the business community not to worry their pretty litthe heads because Congress would repeal it and the USSC would declare it unconstitutional and the president would kill it to keep the gov't from shutting down and maybe put a hundredth the effort into helping people comply with the law that they put into buying the army things the army doesn't want, Obamacare would be a sparkling success. As it is, it's like making Usain Bolt drag a car behind him in a race then complaining when he only comes in third.

And now we find out Benghazi really was because of that video.

Republicans don't take utter defeat lightly: they still have ten months to devastate America and blame it on: progressives, Democrats, women, gays, union members, minorities, men who like high heels, imported-beer drinkers, children of single-parent homes, ACORN even though it's been gone for years, non-Protestant religions, people who like different porn than they do...

9. Please don't insult the noble pig by comparing s/he to a ReTHUGlican.

2. If you think things are bad now, just wait until polls show a Dem presidential nominee winning Texas

Those are going to be some very dark days due to their unpredictable actions. I'm not sure if it will be Hillary in 2016 or the Dem nominee in 2020 or 2024; but once proof arrives of Texas going blue, the Repubs will realize it is their last chance. They will stop at nothing and things are going to get very, very ugly. I would not be surprised at anything they try, even if it involves the illegal use of firearms.

5. A lot of it is they don't see what they're doing as damaging

Because, well, you know, the Waltons were perfectly happy during the Depression, so there's absolutely no reason you shouldn't be just as tickled during the Depression the Republicans want to start. (They leave out the parts about John Walton owning a sawmill and enough land for subsistence farming...)

10. Indeed

it's really hard to notice something with your back turned to it whilst covering one's ears and yelling lalalalala!

But I actually think some of them are the psycho types who enjoy making the "little people" squirm because, well, entertainment like watching gladiators, dog fights or game of thrones for instance.

It's one, the other or both... either way, they don't give rat's ass because they've got theirs and that's really all that matters to them; the corporate overlords have their backs so they're in it for life until they drop dead, as long as the overlords are happy. Either way, they come home far wealthier than when they ran for office.

8. The way to handle a cornered, vicious animal is to put it to sleep, either temporarily, or

for good. Why should cornered republicans be handled any differently?
