Are the Grown-Up Republicans Finally Taking Over?


It looks like the grown-ups (read Karl Rove, Ed Gillespie) are taking over, thank heavens!  They are going to do for the GOP what Goerge Soros did for the Dems.

The Pink Flamingo is finally happy.  Republicans are doing something for Republicans.

Please note it is REPUBLICAN!

Thank heavens it is REPUBLICAN!

It is Republican, without that little tag “conservative”.  There is not “Libertarian” or “Libertarian Republican” just Republicans for Republicans!

Thank heavens for Karl Rove!  I think he is The Pink Flamingo’s new hero!

I am so happy….no “conservative” superiority, no demands for purity, no sign of Ron Paul, just real, honest to goodness Republicans!  There is no losertarian nastiness.  It is just plain old Republican!
