The Republican party is in a state of shock today as many of its members suffered severe whiplash injuries in the recently discovered Hypocrisy vortex.
"We had to change direction so quickly, it caused some of our party to sustain permanent injuries.' said a Republican Spokesman today. 'When we said Obama was too inexperienced to run for President, we hadn't counted on having to defend the even less experienced Sarah Palin. We now accept that Palin has enough experience but Obama still doesn't. Weird huh?'
He continued 'Also when we said that we wanted a national abstinence program and that it was the states right to interfere with your private life, we didn't of course mean that it applied to Republicans. What we do behind closed doors is our business. That kind of swift about turn in our beliefs is what caused the injuries. That and the guns.'
The Hypocrisy vortex was last sighted in Minnesota and was believed to have sucked in many thousands of people.
