View Full Version : In The Bag??? Some Say NOOOOOOOOOOO!

<span style='font-size: 11pt'>"As voting day approaches the reality of what a Tea !Party victory might mean for America seems to be having a sobering effect on poll after poll, which sees the race tightening.

Last night, Sarah Palin weighed in to tell conservatives not to get too cocky just yet. Message: we don't have this in the bag.

She has reason to be cautious. Obviously the Tea Party political positions are extreme, but now voters are becoming aware they're the most extreme to have played out in a national election cycle in decades. For example:

Ohio Republican House of Representatives candidate <span style='font-size: 14pt'>Rich Iott glorifies Nazi S.S. officers atrocities </span>by engaging in reenactments of them with his buddies at the weekend. Like most people I was amazed to hear that some Americans pursue such pastimes. Tomorrow does not belong to him, I'm guessing.

<span style='font-size: 14pt'>Rand Paul, remarkably, says he would not have voted for the Civil Rights Act of 1964. He also supports the elimination of the Department of Education. And he called Medicare "intergenerational welfare." Let's not even get started on Aqua Buddha.</span>

<span style='font-size: 14pt'>Sharon Angle has said she opposes abortion in all cases, including those of rape and incest. </span>She also said she would have voted against federal aid for those affected by Hurricane Katrina. The message appears to be that Angle doesn't have a bleeding heart, apparently it's made of stone.

Christine O'Donnell, a whirligig of bizarre quotes, has dabbled in witchcraft and says that masturbation violates God's plan and that <span style='font-size: 14pt'>AIDS education is "a platform for the homosexual community to recruit adolescents." </span>For Christine, just talking about sex is the same as having it.

<span style='font-size: 14pt'>Joe Miller, the Republican U.S. Senate candidate believes that the minimum wage, hate crime laws, and the health care reform legislation are all unconstitutional. He wants to close down Social Security. He also rejects a woman's right to an abortion in cases of rape and incest.</span> Ok, then.

New York's <span style='font-size: 14pt'>Carl Paladino, </span>God help him, hasn't a prayer but lets look at his recent pronouncements. When he is not <span style='font-size: 14pt'>threatening to "take out" New York Post editors, </span>he's bashing gays, or <span style='font-size: 14pt'>calling for welfare recipients to be forced into work camps (in converted prisons), </span>where they will be taught personal hygiene. Charles Dickens would have loved him.

Despite all this whacked-out wingnuttery, I don't think it's just their obviously extreme positions that will dim the Tea Party's electoral chances, although they're bad enough. I think <span style='font-size: 14pt'>it will actually come down to the public's quiet but thorough distaste for their braying supporters.</span>The average Tea Party supporters lack of civility or even basic respect for their political opponents is now almost legendary: it has broken through every meet-up and demonstration and internet chat board in America.

There can't be anyone left in the nation who hasn't witnessed a Tea Party verbal drubbing first hand. <span style='font-size: 14pt'>It's been bad enough having to listen to them since Glenn Beck, the Koch brother and Fox News started this 'grass roots' movement in the first place, but to put them in power for years too? Here's a sample of what I'll call the Tea Party tone culled from Yahoo in the last ten minutes:</span>"Go to hell Libturds"
"Die you liberal socialists!"
"Demonazis are scum"
"Dimocrats are the party of bailout"

Language like this convinces me that most Tea Party supporters are not ready for grade school never mind government. They're just way too extreme for America. I'll be surprised if the country actually votes for their selections.

And looking ahead, in years to come though, it won't just be their incivility and intolerance that turns moderates off. The ideological purity test they now insist on from their political candidates will just drive more and more impure Republicans from the party.

<span style='font-size: 14pt'>Eventually the Tea Party will be forced to discover what the rest of America already has - that they're not in touch with the mainstream."</span>UPDATE: Rand Paul Tea Party supporters stomp on a woman's head in Kentucky last night.</span>

There is that 'irrational emotion' showing its ugly head again. The inability to accept reality, the inability to learn from experience, repeating the same mistakes over and over and expecting different results. Gosh, irrational emotions seems a bit closer to insanity than liberals would like.

LOL, you have a lot of nerve talking about doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results, after voting for Bush twice, and seeing what the Republican big spending majority, did to this country when they had control!!!!

Gee by the time you subtract all of the Republicans who went to jail on the Abramoff deal, and then subtract all of the pork barreling big spenders, who would be the new "Leaders" not to mention all of their unpaid for programs, and wars, borrowing us into the pit, and then take away all of them who were mixed up with prostitutes, crack from their "Boyfriends" and leaving their governorship responsibilities to excape the country to get one more fling with mistresses, or to go on the road for the big bucks, or hiding their homosexuality, how man are left????

Oh, and the former Republican "Speaker" about to show up for his a trial, Tom Delay, and you want to aim that accusation????

Silly man.

I haven't voted for a Republican presidential candidate since I held my nose and voted for GHW Bush in 1988 for some of the reasons you site. And though I'm hopeful that the new Republican will go in the conservative, Tea Party direction, I am still leery the there will be too many two-timers left in the party to set the right agenda.

I think the clearer and more understandable divide is between conservative and liberal rather that by party.

You do realize that there are many Liberals, who say they are "conservative" don't you?

For example, I consider myself very conservative. Why?

I wouldn't think of trying to pressure or prevent another American, or anyone, from having the right to make their own personal choices in life.

I would never consider attacking another person, or bashing them, for their sexual preferences, either, and to do so, is very radical, not conservative.

Going to war, and invading and occupying another couuntry, when it has never attacked us on our shores, is also radical, and not conservative, particularly when it is sold to the public, on lies, and cherry picked information.

Saying that debts, or deficits, don't matter??? Truly a radical sttement to make, nothing conservative about that, at all.

To me, it is also very radical, and not at all conservative, to deny scientific theory, when it has lasted and added even more documentation, through time, and for hundreds of years.....such as the Theory Of Evolution.

Radical, and not conservative, to prevent scientific studies, using stemcells, when they could cure so many diseases with studies of stem cells..radical, because it smacks of caring more about a friggin' cell, than a living human being, many of whom suffer incredibly.

Radical also to deprive others of using any natural herb which relieves their pain. I am far too conservative to do such a thing as that. What grows on the earth, belongs to all mankind.

Radical to have no conscience about how difficult it is for some people, to get by, particularly when they have become ill, and dropped by their health insurance companies. Not what I think of as conservative.

Radical, and not conservative, to out a NOC CIA Agent, out of spite, from being exposed as a liar.

This is why the right, mistakenly thinks the country is center right, because the meaning of the word, conservative, does not fit with the actions of Republicans, nor the Tea Party zealots. IMO.

My fascination is with the truth.

The fact that her fascination ... besides my post count and every word ... is with perpetuating party propaganda is her problem and not mine.

I see my position on this forum as analogous to ... (that means very similar to something for those who are confused by such words as "QUASI") ... to an announcer of "RADIO FREE EUROPE" during WWII combatting the propaganda of the Reich.

If one doesn't do as LWW asks, one is cowering.

Close, but i think your ramblings are more similar to Tokyo Rose, besides, the announcer of Radio Free Europe had an audience of millions. While you have an audience of 2 maybe 3 other delusional nutjobs? Thanks for shareing your flushworthy fantasy of relevance anyway. St.
