oh! oh! oh!
While one cannot predict the future, the current state of the GOP primary, the batshit battle over contraception (including the frothing of Rush) and the corresponding illumination of deep divisions within the Republican party gives those of us on the Left reason to pause and to hope. It may turn out that in the long run the Tea-Party-Revolution of 2010 could actually prove the Left’s greatest asset.
Perusing through Redstate.com and contrasting with current congressional proclivities is quite entertaining.
We’ve been gunning hard for the Pompeo/DeMint bill, which would end all subsidies and special tax preferences for energy companies. This is our chance to stand decisively on the side of the free-market and against crony capitalism and picking winners and losers in the market.
We’re not just against handouts for green energy; we must oppose them for natural gas as well.
ZZZZZZZZZZZZZ! Wrong answer Dan. If you check with the corporatist GOP establishment, you would see that you should be FOR energy subsidies in order to establish America’s energy independence. Let’s try again.
But whenever the verdict of the delegate race becomes final, the voters have already spoken, and their message is clear: this is still the conservatives’ party, awaiting only the right leader to unite it.
OHHHH! Wrong again. See the problem here, as was deftly pointed out by Jon Stewart, is that the mythical conservative leader does not exist. In fact he/she can’t exist, it’s not possible. Your views, wants and desires are so conflicted, no one person could encapsulated them all and possibly utter a coherent sentence. Second problem is the corporatists that run the GOP (and I believe now are regretting funding the Tea Party) would never let someone like that at the helm as he/she would utterly turn off independent voters, as Santorum is proving.
Don’t even need to copy any blurbs over, the title says it all.
Keep on infighting boys and girls. The more you argue amongst yourselves and tear each other down the more likely Obama wins.

Yeah, no debate for me tonight. I’ll just wait for all the highlights and deconstruction in the morrow. Need the break, I’ll go insane if I listen to that much batshit-wingnut lunacy in a concentrated dose … They probably booed a hispanic nurse for giving a gay man CPR or some such thing. So, I’ll just drop a few randoms of the day on ya ….
- First one here is a nice little deconstruction from Media Matters of the light bulb bullshit the right has been spewing. Obama is apparently going to turn out the lights so that, under cover of darkness, he can take away all our guns and turn us into a socialist hell hole
- Another example of the fears of the GOP establishment/elite that their party is imploding from Jennifer Rubin as she implores one of the “won’t runs” to run,
But here’s the thing: The voters in their infinite wisdom have just given a huge boost to perhaps the only GOP candidate who could shift the spotlight from President Obama to himself, alienate virtually all independent voters, lose more than 40 states and put the House majority in jeopardy.
That’s right, you can thank the Tea Party for that m’dear
- Boehner and Cantor prepare for another legislative session. Have they learned anything from last year?
“Our focus over the last 12 months has been on jobs,” Boehner said during an appearance on “Fox News Sunday.” “Our focus over the course of the next 12 months is going to be on jobs.”
Ummm … your focus has been tax breaks for the wealthy, gutting the social safety net, a war on reproductive rights, the environment & regulation.
“We really have to be much better at laying out a vision of what we stand for,” Cantor said in an interview. “And that means we have to have a message that sort of reflects in a very simple way, and to me, small-business job creation is what the taxpayers of this country can benefit most by.”
GOP leaders are aiming to attach the Keystone XL pipeline to either the payroll holiday or the infrastructure bill, sources say.
apparently the answer is … NO
Let the Pied Pipers of the Tea Party run the GOP right of the cliff I say …
