They're STILL selling conservatism (VIDEO)

It amazes me that, watching the Sunday shows, the rationale for the failure of conservatism is, we have to sell more of it. That is all.

Update. Crap I left out Hannity.

    I'm actually enjoying myself immensely.

    More popcorn, please.

    Watching the wreckage of the Republican party these days is like watching a bunch of suicide bombers in a junkyard car arguing over who gets to drive.

    Remember how scornful the right-wing pundits were of the "reality-based" community? Well, ignoring reality is just as fatal as jumping out of a skyscraper pretending the law of gravity doesn't exist. Something's gonna go Spat!

    As long as the Republicans ignore what happened to them, the better it is for progressives and the Democrats. Instead of listening to the "moderate" members of their party who realize how important it is to reach out to women and people of color, sock puppets like Limbaugh want to bring in loonies like the Neo-Nazi Sons of the Aryan brotherhood.

    We saw how well that worked out.

    Hmmm. This popcorn's good. Yummy.

    d.r., you are sooooo right.

    Keep it coming. In big yummy, runny dollops of slimey, stinky stoopid.

  3. You left out Hannity?

    Allow me.

    Rupert Murdoch is God? Hmm... I may have to rethink my atheism.

    I do indeed hope for the right to wander further into the woods. It's like they're lost in the Labyrinth, and someone has the brilliant idea of asking the man-eating minotaur for directions.

    John Cole's idea of hitting Peak Wingnut isn't going to happen for years yet. My biggest concern is what happens when the spectacularly stupid, who have been force-fed a diet of terror for years, realize they're alone in the dark: fear begets violence. One can only hope their aim is as faulty as their reasoning.

  6. There are lots of commentaries in the press and on television now about the future of the Republicans and the direction its party will take in the next couple of years (and specifically for the 2010 congressional election.)

    Newt Gingrich on Face The Nation yesterday made it pretty clear that Sarah Palin was not the direction Republicans would go toward. Yet, Palin is getting lots of attention around the country, most recently at the Republican Governor's Conference, and she doesn't seem ready to let go of her anti-Obama and anti-Democratic statements.

    Thomas Edsall, in a really good article on HuffPo, said:

    The Grand Old Party, believing that the nation's political geography has turned against them, is slinking away from the battleground once owned by moderate Republicans like Rockefeller, Saltonstall, Chaffee, Mathias, and Weld. Democrats in the meantime have worked up their nerve to go after states hitherto thought off limits. Harvard political scientist Steve Ansolabehere notes that Democrats "have been building infrastructure in states like Montana and North Carolina, and . . . remain competitive in the southern state legislatures."

    For over a decade, and most strikingly during the past two elections, the intensely anti-immigration stand of Republican House and Senate members, and their insulting rhetoric, has proven to be a loser. Republicans have lost House seats in predominately white Southwestern districts which conservatives believed would be a hotbed of anti-immigrant sentiment. In 1996, Republican mishandling of the immigration issue converted California into a reliably Democratic state, and now it looks as if the Republicans are on the road to repeating the feat in Florida, Nevada, Colorado, New Mexico and, potentially, Texas and Arizona.

    And if there are any moderate (or even liberal) Republicans left in the world, they have been so destroyed by the conservative party members that they would either have to start a new party or, as many seem to be doing, become Democrats.

    I watched Huckabee's show on Fox last night for the first time and found an outpost for the Pro-Life (read "anti-women") and completely Christian Republicans who are not going to go away soon and who will continue to let Democrats have control of the important issues of economy, security and diversity. As long as Republicans are ready to fragment the population, the Democrats will maintain their strength.

    It will be interesting to see what the results are of today's Obama-McCain meeting. If McCain becomes a leader under Obama on some of the issues they agree on, it will mark another point in the new Administrations unification of all citizens and leave the extreme conservatives either farther out.

    This will be a day to watch.

  7. yes, more please! nothing like watching idiots choke on their agenda!

  8. If only they'd go away forever. Now they're just going to be pouty for a while, licking their wounds.

  9. RepubloConservatism is God, it's the best fit to the behavior, sayeth Occam and de Saint Exupery.

    Klanservastve drug-addicted pedophiles like Oxy-Moron Limbaugh are not to be taken seriously, and wouldn't be taken seriously-except for the fact that corporate radio has shoved him down our throats whether or not we wanted him.

    They may claim that they do it because of "ratings," but there are way too many examples of Oxy-Moron being put into markets as a replacement for popular talkers like Ed Schultz and Randi Rhodes. The ratings the pedophile gets are ALWAYS under what Schultz or Rhodes were getting.

  11. Yeah-I don't get it either. The election just showed that people are moving to the left or at least rejecting far right wackos like Hannity, Beck and so many of those dip's arguments.
    Love the video!

    honestly...there's nothing wrong with being conservative, if you are honest, rational and advocate conservation.


I really look forward to hearing what you have to say. I do moderate comments, but non-spam comments will take less than 24 hours to appear... Thanks!
