how the Instapundit would spin the overwhelming Democratic victory last night in the USA, and particularily the complete shut out of California Gov. Schwarzenegger’s four proposed propositions here in the golden state.
people ask me why i pay so much attention to rightwing radio and tv and blogs and its because as a recovering salesman, i appreciate when someone can smoothly turn shit into shinola.
last night the rightwing was handed a steaming helping of shit, so i couldnt wait to see how my favorite blogger was going to turn it into grade-a shinola.
im sad to report, as poor of a showing that the Republicans delivered yesterday, professor reynolds fell on his face today.
“…I may have been right in suggesting that the GOP had lost its mojo with the Terri Schiavo affair. Things seem to have started to go south then, not only because of the issue itself, but because of the divisive venom that so many Schiavo partisans aimed at people who disagreed with them. I think it was very damaging to the GOP coalition, and they’ve continued to pay a price.”
Terri Schiavo is when the Repubs lost their mojo?
it was the venom that the “partisans” aimed at people who disagreed with them that sank the grand old party?
oh, professor, you can do better than that.
first of all, if you wanna blame the Schaivo fiasco dont blame it on the anti-choice righties who wanted to continue to expand the government so the woman’s husband wouldnt be able to do what he thought was right.
dont blame the pundits and the media and the faux-Christians, how about blaming the republican Senate for having the nerve to pass the Palm Sunday Resolution with only three senators present. how about blaming the republican House for passing it at 12:41am when everyone was sleeping.
how about blaming the President of the United States who cut his vacation short so he could take Air Force One and fly from Texas to DC and sign the bill at 1:11am, partially because of the Darling memo that had convinced the right that this case would be great political leverage against Sen Bill Nelson of Florida.
so how about blaming, not the so-called pro-life supporters who talked shit about those who supported a husband obeying the last wish of his wife, but blame Bush, Dr. Frist, Delay, Martinez, Darling, and Jeb Bush for using a feeding tube and a woman in a fucking coma as an unwitting political pawn.
yes, professor, i know its hard for you to lay blame on those who are actually responsible for failing the party and the people who they represent: americans. and i know that its tough for you to actually believe that the GOP began its slide more than eight months ago.
but it did.
even though it didnt swing the election, the beginging of the end of the Republican party, your party, professor, the one even youre too ashamed to admit to belonging to, for good reason, officially started their descent October 7, 2004 when special consultant to the CIA, Charles Duelfer and the multi-national Iraq Survey Group hired by the White House presented the 1,500 page Duelfer Report that explained that Iraq had no weapons of mass destruction when we invaded them in 2003, infact the report said that Saddam was much further away from nukes in 2003 than he was between 1991-93.
so why did Bush win re-election four weeks later?
because it took America five weeks to read that report.
that, and they didnt want gays to *gasp* get married.
and they didnt want to believe that the President of the United States of America would lie to them in order to go to war over oil.
they didnt want to believe that a Presidential administration would use something as dramatic as 9/11 as a springboard for their own agenda that had nothing to do with 9/11.
but now they believe that BushCo is really that corrupt, and that you professor are a willing and eager apologist for them and their dirty deeds.
they now understand this white collar gang would attempt to smear a respected former US Ambassador by outting his CIA agent wife, and then lie about it to a grand jury, all because he dared to contradict them in a editorial in a newspaper.
the american people now sing along with kayne west that this administration could have done something to help those stranded on their rooftops in flooded New Orleans the way they went out of their way to try to “save Terri”, but they sat on their hands, ate cake in arizona, played guitar in california, and emailed about fine dining in baton rouge.
they now get it that even the future of the Republican party, the most famous immigrant, the belle of the GOP ball last fall at their convention, Arnold it turns out is a liar just like his nazi police chief daddy, far more interested in his ever-buldging bank account than in the children, the nurses, the students, the teachers, the taxpayers, and the firefighters of california, a state he cant even pronounce let alone govern.
and yes they get it that bloggers like you are simply a tool, another brick in the wall, for these greedy selfish crooks and liars bent on getting richer and more powerful on the backs of average people’s hopes and american dreams, which wont ever come true with BushCo in power because average people dont sit on the board of Haliburton, Exxon, or Gilead
and they understand that this administration will pay off reporters, provide propaganda, and even allow a gay male hooker into the white house press corps for a year on a day pass so he can ask his softball questions in a flacid attempt to pull the wool over the eyes of the average american. a hoax and a betrayal of trust that you repeatedly enable dozens and dozens of times a day.
while echo chambers like you will turn the other way and instead of shining the light at the most corrupt group of rats in the kitchen will aim their god-given talents at the grieving mother of a fallen soldier who simply asks for peace.
what is it about you people using innocent women as scapegoats for your failures: schiavo, sheehan, miers.
but america’s had it. maybe it was this freak show circus parade of scandal, maybe it was the soaring gasoline prices, maybe the bile in our collective gullets couldnt be held back one more day.
which is why yesterday we went to the polls and began our first real steps at taking back our country from the real terrorists who have lied and stolen and torn freedom away from the greatest nation in the world while spending its surplus on tyranny, torture, and horror.
the only bright spot for the your party tonight my friend is that theres not one democrat on the hill with the courage to do the right thing and call for an impeachment of this president
who knew about 9/11 the month previous
who knew that his advisors and vp were outting a cia agent as payback
and who knew there were no wmds in iraq and no ties there to al quaeda.
last night the terminator got a taste of judgement day
repent now because as page n plant so perfectly said,
your time is gonna come.
