Ah, yes. The Republicans have already started eating their own in preparation for 2014. By that time we should see all the Repubs that survived the litmus test primaries by attempting to out-Conservative their rivals, resulting in a bunch of ideologically “pure” candidates that will manage to alienate at least 50% of their own party.
And now…. The REAL Cartoon Of The Day!
Have a nice day!
“Socialism, like the ancient ideas from which it springs, confuses the distinction between government and society. As a result of this, every time we object to a thing being done by government, the socialists conclude that we object to its being done at all. We disapprove of state education. Then the socialists say that we are opposed to any education. We object to a state religion. Then the socialists say that we want no religion at all. We object to a state-enforced equality. Then they say that we are against equality. And so on, and so on. It is as if the socialists were to accuse us of not wanting persons to eat because we do not want the state to raise grain.” ― Frédéric Bastiat, The Law
Fun times at the Wyoming Cannibal Buffet . . . Please, go ahead and shred one another, I’ll enjoy the spectacle. And the really great thing about all this is that this is only one of what promises to be a great many bloody, vicious, expensive, repugnant primaries. This is great – even before facing their democratic opponent, the GOP nominee will have been battered and bruised and probably really low on funds.
What’s going to be funny is whether or not the national party will back the bagroes should they win the primary. After all, given that the TP regards the GOP as only slightly less repugnant than the dems, the national committee may decide that it would be easier to unseat a democrat in the next election than to go through this again trying to get rid of a crazy person who’s even more hostile to them than the dems. They. at least, are willing to work with them, whereas the bagroes are committed to shutting the gov’t down.
You nailed it, Bro. Except for the part questioning whether the “moderate” Repugnican scum will back the wingnuts who win their primaries. The behavior of the Repugs over the course of the last five years provides ample evidence that they’d rather climb in bed with anarchists than with the Democrats. All repugnicans are scum.
Bear in mind that a lot of the bagroes are totally unpalatable to the mainstream republicans. While I doubt they would ever actually vote for a democrat, sitting out the election or writing in a protest vote is far more likely. After all, that’s what the democrats did in ’10, and are now paying the price for it.
Yeah. I didn’t quite get your point earlier, but I’m feeling you now. I think it’s highly likely, indeed, that many reasonably sane Repugs (if there is such a creature) would rather sit the next one out than dance with a Tea Party knucklehead.
Very astute observations on your part. Kudos.
Thanks. There are still rational, reasonable, civilized conservatives out there, it’s just that they are no longer welcome in the republican party. They’re bunkered down and keeping quiet in fear for their lives. However, go check out the theamericanconservativemagazine.com site, which is where the old Rockefeller republicans still congregate. Intelligent, civilized discussions. And bagroes are not welcome there, which is nice.
If you think YOU’RE not happy with the GOP, think about those poor mooks who got tossed out for the unpardonable crime of being reasonable.
Apparently that conservative was a little too liberal with his use of the word friend.
