Even as I agree with conservatives -- and I almost always do, unless matters involving sex or religion are in play -- I often cringe at the things GOP talkers choose to carp about. Today, for example, Sarah Palin (whom I like in many respects) decided to take issue with the Obama family's holiday card:
"It's odd," Palin said, wondering why the president's Christmas card highlights his dog instead of traditions like "family, faith and freedom."Problem is, the O'card is almost impossible to distinguish in that regard from Republican cards of Christmas past. Goddamn. Not only is Palin a Scrooge, a churl, and a jackass for complaining about a freaking Christmas card, but she trivializes by implication the real atrocity of the Obama regime -- that by a bizarre combination of calculation and indifference it is destroying America's great distinguishing trait, opportunity in enterprise.
Expect to hear a lot more from me after Christmas. Someone has to take it to Obama.
I may help someone else jump into the Big Race. Mitt's a Dead Man Walking, and should have sense to know it. I did. "A man's got to know his own limitations."
HBO is doing a film about me in March, with Julianne Moore as me. She's got the look but not the sizzle. Should be hysterical.
In 2012 my big thing will be helping us win key Senate and House races. We need the numbers -- not just to control Congress but to give the Right People a majority within our own caucus -- that's why we've been backsliding, despite our gains in 2010.
Talk to you later ....
Reminds one of the poorly conceived reality TV show, which Sarah said wasn't to be called a reality TV show.
What can one say?
Even today we have a Republican candidate named Perry who is airing Ads which provide a form of class warfare against "Wall Street". One week Gingrich is talking anti-Capitalist nonsense like Obama, the next Perry is running Ads which identify more with the nutty "occupy" leftists than with the US Free Market.
And yet a great deal of this sophistry is somehow being peddled as the real deal in the conservative realm. Maybe the superficial does sell some books after all.
Perhaps even worse, some of those I really respected and appreciated over the years, are tossing away their credibility like they really want a career in comedy. I did a double take, seeing McCarthy, Hayward, etc., try to suggest Newt's latest bombast gimmick threatening the Judiciary was wonderful. We all know it is designed to distract from his Beltway Insider franchise, but did these pro-pundits even bother kick the tires on this train wreck of an idea?
Sooner or later, you will see it all.
I never thought Rush Limbaugh would play populism either, but there he went. Rush may no longer be using the ugly term "blue blood" since a few months ago, but he still plays the code words offering 'establishment-ruling class" warfare. It is all about "us vs. them" now at the EIB. Diddos heading towards "dodo" - (extinction).
