The pros and cons of abortion aside, Dobson seems to miss one of the original purposes of the Constitution, which was to protect the American people from “excesses of democracy” of local legislatures, which tended to run roughshod over the rights of the minority.
In the biggest sign yet that Glenn Beck’s fame is on the decline, Beck opened his national Restoring Honor tour in New Jersey yesterday in front of only 700 people in a venue that holds 8,000. Organizers were able to sell less than 10% of the tickets for the event, highlighting the fact that Beck is not the mega draw that Fox portrays him as.
Now we have the Palin cult threatening to kill a young man against whom Palin got a civil restraining order. Palin fans are suggesting they will shoot this man with “liberal lead” as if he, too, must be a political operative. He is not. Shawn Christy is a Palin fan, who donated to her PAC.
Blind folds, hidden cameras, boats, a sex tape machine, pornographic magazines, champagne and strawberries….sounds like one of those cheesy porns they consume in the Bible Belt on Sundays, but no…..this is a the “CNN Caper”, a Right Wing Activist Plan. It’s politics, Tea Party Style.
What we have here is, in a way, the ultimate candidate for the Republican Party: a fake candidate to represent a fake nation, a woman touting a past that doesn’t exist wishing to represent a United States that doesn’t exist.
Although the Right continues to spread the myth that media is biased against conservatives, the truth was obvious again today as the media ignored the progressive One Nation rally. This is a pattern that has become apparent over and over again. White conservatives captivate the media, while the diverse progressive Left is invisible.
It used to be that Republicans were considered the “adults”, but this is the year when counterfeit conservatives jumped the meretricious shark and the Democrats appear to be the only responsible adult in the room. A perfect example of the tatty, mangy grunge of insincerity and graft permanently adhered to the former glory of the Republican brand is the Georgia gubernatorial race.
My God, this is getting brutal. Tonight on his HBO show Real Time, host Bill Maher broke out another clip of Christine O’Donnell from the 1990s on Politically Incorrect. Tonight’s clip featured Christine the Christian confessing that she dabbled in other religions before settling on Christianity.
I thought I’d best just head on over to the Institute to see what old Dan Webster does believe in, since he claims he does not believe women should submit to their husbands. When the Tea Party says they want to take their country back, they mean you, too. You. Mama Grizzly. Submit to me. On your knees, woman and keep that mouth closed unless you can keep it meek and subservient.
Despite the headline, the poll results paint a far less rosy picture for Republicans than for Democrats as the results show Obama defeating every possible Republican candidate.
On his radio show today Glenn Beck and his crew claimed that the perfect movie for these teabagging times is Star Wars. Beck managed to turn Star Wars in into a Tea Party epic. Beck said, “Wow, is it a appropriate story for today. My gosh, the Republic is going down. The Empire is starting.”
Ideology has become so central to the Republican narrative that facts can be dismissed at a whim. The narrative need bear no resemblance to what actually took place, despite that smorgasbord of evidence all around us.
