There is a National “Tea Party” Convention coming up in Nashville Feb 4-6. The problem is the Tea Party is not one movement and the Tea Party Convention organizers are not recognized leaders of the movement. So when they plan a $550 per plate dinner it is naturally going to ruffle many feathers of rank and file Tea Party people who see it as nothing more than a co-opting of a grass-roots movement.
I agree. I think Sarah Palin should decline the invitation to be the key note speaker. I think this Convention is going to damage the great success of the Tea Party movement along with everyone involved.
The Tea Party movement should make every effort to not look like they are falling for the Washington “business as usual” mentality.
I don’t know if Romney can recover from this. Let’s be honest, real men don’t jog, they KILL.
I wonder which one will get Joe the Plumber’s endorsement. Should be a real nail-biter.
Naturally, Rush Limbaugh will ultimately choose the next Republican candidate for President. And Rush is not stupid, he will wait until the last minute and deliver his final edict after a heavy ceremonial Oxycontin session and like a phoenix from ashes, the Republican party will be fully transitioned and restored to its new and proper place in society; DOA (dead on arrival).
Not only will the Republican party be responsible for it’s own catastrophic failure, they will also have destroyed our two-party system for a generation. And that’s not good for anyone.
Just in time for the big T-Day
As seen on Letterman – 11-24-2008, Top 10 Sarah Palin excuses:
10. “I can see Russia, but I can’t see what’s going on five feet behind me.”
9. “Not thinking straight after spending all night reading every newspaper and magazine.”
8. “Damn ‘gotcha’ media got me again!”
7. “My Remington shotgun says I don’t need an excuse.”
6. “Those were al-Qaeda turkeys.”
5. “I thought they were just torturing the little guy.”
4. “I mean, doggonit, you know, like we have to lower taxes, and like, it all falls under job security, and we need to drill, you know?”
3. “Uh, stomach flu?”
2. “I’ll get right back to ya! I’m still adorable, America.”
1. “Don’t blame me! Blame Joe the Turkey Slaughterer!”
On Chris Matthews’ Hardball today, he lists the year’s biggest losers after this campaign. I, for one, am glad to see that the Rovian method of gaming politics has been exposed and has failed miserably in the end. All that’s left now is to require him to testify before congress (and maybe the ‘perp’ walk).
#1 Karl Rove
Rove thought he could build a permanent Republican majority by dividing the country. Based on the idea that you were either “patriotic or not, for wars or not, with the cultural values of the right or not”. But it turns out the Republicans didn’t focus enough on economy while playing Rove’s game, and were caught unprepared for the huge economic disaster that climaxed during the election.
Other losers were:
#2 The Bradley Effect. Turned out there was no such effect with this election.
#3 Sen. Elizabeth Dole. Ran a vicious and dishonest ad and lost her senate seat.
#4 Joe Lieberman. Broke party ranks to endorse McCain, but may now be in a bad place. Democrats are upset with him; however, they need his votes in the Senate.
#5 Sarah Palin. Unprepared. Woefully ignorant. Thought Africa was a country not a continent.
Apparently there is trouble between the McCain and Palin camps. According to CNN:
[A] McCain source says she appears to be looking out for herself more than the McCain campaign.
“She is a diva. She takes no advice from anyone,” this McCain adviser said. “She does not have any relationships of trust with any of us, her family or anyone else.
“Also, she is playing for her own future and sees herself as the next leader of the party. Remember: Divas trust only unto themselves, as they see themselves as the beginning and end of all wisdom.”
Things are definitely breaking down. The campaign appears to be in serious disarray. But the point is not to gloat, but to recognize the lack of leadership and unity. As I said before, it matters.
My gift to you. ‘ Pubs ‘ caught on tape saying how they really feel about Palin.
Huffington Post have outdone themselves having created the most complete coverage of Hottie 4 VP.
Somehow it feels like I am about to have one of those experiences — which have been happening with increasing frequency since Bush — the ones that remind you of the ole’ “Sometimes Truth is Stranger Than Fiction”. A week ago, you couldn’t have given me 1000 to 1 odds that the republicans and McCain would have picked this freak show as VP running mate.
