Why Haley’s Comet Is Bad for Tea Parties & Conservatives

Why Haley’s Comet Is Bad for Tea Parties & Conservatives
May 28, 2010
Share

How long are the tea party people going to be held unaccountable for their stupidity and their problematic endorsements which are going to hurt the GOP?

The Pink Flamingo does not believe in out of state, primary endorsements. It is ruinous to the GOP.

We also have a problem of the egos. Jim DeMint is out for Jim DeMint. Erick Erickson is his little flunkie. DeMint has “officially” stayed out of the ongoing war in SC, but his flunkie is defending Haley. Mitt Romney, along with blogger Will Folks were early Haley supporters. Palin jumped on the bangwagon a few weeks ago. We all know these endorsements are payback for previous endorsements. It is the way the game is played. BUT – DeMint and Palin are making fools of themselves choosing the most “conservative” candidate, not exactly looking for the more stable and qualified candidate. Haley is NOT qualified to be the Governor of SC nor is Rand Paul fit to serve in the US Senate.

Ron Paul’s 2012 POTUS Run OR Did Newt Actually Win SLRC Straw Poll?

Ron Paul’s 2012 POTUS Run OR Did Newt Actually Win SLRC Straw Poll?
April 12, 2010
Share

Over a month ago The Pink Flamingo told you that Ron Paul was planning to disrupt the SRLC and hijack the straw poll. Ironically, he and his supporters did not count on Romney’s supporters being even more crafty. If you want to know the interesting facts behind the poll, check the 2nd choice. Paul is way out of it! The Romney people and Ron Paul Bots made a mess of things, but could not hide the 2nd choice – which goes to Newt!

“…Some reports from New Orleans indicate heavy, coordinated lobbying on behalf of the Paul and Romney campaigns. I don’t doubt it; we saw the same thing at the recent CPAC meetings on behalf of Paul, who brought a lot of motivated young people out to support him. So it’s interesting to look at the secondary preferences because, presumably, strategic supporters of Romney and Paul would know better than to cast their second-choice votes for the other guy.

Palin Thumbs Nose at CPAC While McCain Seen as Leader of the GOP

Palin Thumbs Nose at CPAC While McCain Seen as Leader of the GOP
January 8, 2010
Share

Who knew that John McCain would be seen as the leader of the GOP in this Tea Party “patriot” era? A new Harris Poll points to the fact that perhaps things aren’t as extreme as the Far Right and the Ron Paul Bots would like one to think it is.

“..Other Republican leaders who are viewed by many people as influential and as leading voices in the party include former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh, former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney, former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee, McCain’s vice presidential running mate and former governor of Alaska Sarah Palin, and former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani. These six Republicans, all of whom would probably like to be the next Republican presidential candidate, are seen as about as influential as each other. But more people see Palin and Limbaugh as leading voices of the party, and Palin scores more highly among Republicans….”

Interestingly, this is not a “inside” conservative thing, but a general poll. There are those who think the “tea party movement” is going to become to the GOP what MoveOn.org is to the DNC. If so, we have a problem. MoveOn has done more to push the DNC farther left than anything we could possibly imagine. If the “tea party movement” decides to do the same thing with the GOP, we will be in serious trouble. Even Ron Paul appears to be throwing the Tea Party “patriots” under the bus.

Imagine selling 300,000 books in one day – every writer’s dream!

The Pink Flamingo has not had a chance to read the book. I gave my copy to my best friend who wanted to give it to a mutual friend who was going to be spending a bit of time doing medical tests and wanted something to read. My replacement copy arrived from Amazon an hour ago.

The Pink Flamingo is attempting to be as brutally honest as possible. It is not fun and it is not easy. I will anger some people, but please, continue to the end of the post.

THE UGLY STUFF

The Pink Flamingo is having a difficult time with the constant trashing of John McCain’s campaign. There is something about it I find distasteful. I must admit I am finding it distasteful to the point where I’ve stopped listening to the FOX interviews. I watched a portion of the O’Reilly interview and liked the fact that Sarah Palin plays like a grown-up and accepts responsibility for actions. That alone is refreshing considering what we have in power right now.

I keep going back to the old adage about airing dirty laundry, burning bridges, and being grace under fire. It bothers me. Politics is a strange business, creates strange bed-fellows, and one should never completely destroy a relationship. You might need that person one day.

The Conservative Civil War Against the GOP Is Here

The Conservative Civil War Against the GOP Is Here
November 5, 2009

“…THE storm of conservative fury at Ronald Reagan may have subsided a bit, but, as one of the President’s own men in the White House conceded late last week, ”There are some who are still in a real sour mood.”…”

Once Upon a Time… a very conservative man named Richard Viguerie hated Ronald Reagan, and did everything he could to ruin his Presidency. Today he’s back, crowing about the Tea Party People and how they are now the new GOP. God Help Us All! The problem is only 56% of conservatives consider themselves GOP. If this is true, and this bunch of Tea Party Yahoos are NOT Republican, then tell them

THE PENDING GLENN BECK TRAIN WRECK

Last Monday, yet another creepy episode of Glenn Beck is way over the edge. He is basically asking people to betray the GOP and do something – what ever. The man is a train wreck waiting to happen. If Glenn Beck were to get his way, the Dems would maintain control of the House and the Senate in 2010. If this happens, just kiss our country good-by.

I don’t want to give in to hysteria, but is Glenn Beck a plant for George Soros and the DNC? He certainly isn’t helping the GOP (unless it is over a cliff). He’s helping FOX, and himself, but is in the process of causing what could be perminent and irreperable to the country in the process.

There is a little “buzz phrase” The Pink Flamingo looks for when dealing with the far far far far far right who want you to think they are Republicans.

What?

“I’m for taking the Republican Party back for true conservatives.”

The minute I hear that I think Ron Paul Bot or Glenn Beck Clown School Drop-Out. That one phrase tells The Pink Flamingo we’re not actually dealing with a Republican but someone who is a sore-head, Ross Perot style drop-out, have it my way – OR ELSE!

From Down with Tyranny:

“...NY-23 up near Montreal in northeast New York, has more cows than people– and more Republicans than Democrats. The Inside-the-Beltway and national media have jumped into the race, marveling at how the GOP is managing to screw up their chances there with a vicious intraparty civil war. Watch the video below of Beck calling for a right-wing jihad against the Republican Party establishment in the name of teabaggery and keep in mind that he still has one full week for a full on Vicks Vaporub weeping session before the balloting is over. Even more important to remember, though, is that NY-23 isn’t the only congressional race shaping up to be a showcase for the struggle between mainstream conservatives and the unhinged, Hate-Talk inspired teabaggers trying to capture the GOP….”

Republicans who do not agree to the conservative threat of support OR ELSE of Doug Hoffman are already being damned. Erick Erickson has already declared war on Newt Gingrich, Mitt Romney, and Mike Huckabee. Conservatives have reached the point where they are demanding “purity” or they are out to destroy good, decent, honorable men and women.

NY-23 It’s a Mad Mad Mad Mad World

NY-23 It’s a Mad Mad Mad Mad World
October 28, 2009
Share

What is arguably one of the greatest comedies ever made is Stanley Kramer’s classic It’s a Mad Mad Mad Mad World. The 1963 film had one of the most amazing comedic casts ever assembled. It is all about seemingly innocent men and women who get drawn into the most hilarious car chase ever, all for money. In the process lives were ruined, careers destroyed, and almost every one of them ended up in jail.

Is NY-23 a litmus test for 2010? The far right wants us to think it is. Newt thinks something else is going on – a purge. He could be right – but The Pink Flamingo thinks something else is going on.

NY-23 appears to be a litmus test for the towering egos who want to be POTUS, or want to control the GOP.

IT’S A MAD MAD MAD MAD WORLD

It is like a line about Tombstone in 1882, nothing but a mining town, dirty and small minded.

That’s what we are dealing with – dirty and small minded twits who do not comprehend that we are starting to see the “stars” jockey for position for 2012.

The Pink Flamingo is not unconvinced the whole battle in NY-23 is not a way for Jerri Thompson to settle herself (not her hubby) on the center stage.

Who is going to win the tug – o – war?

Can Sarah Palin use Facebook and call the shots?
Tim Pawlenty is playing ketchup.
Fred Thompson is being led around by his much younger wife – as usual.
Newt Gingrich is being denounced by the extreme far right.
Jim DeMint is behaving as usual.
We’re not hearing much from Mitt Romney.
Mike Huckabee is going to South Carolina.
Rick Santorum is in there fighting.
Steve Forbes is donating $$$$.
Dick Armey is Tea Partying.

Now They’ve Turned on Newt

Now They’ve Turned on Newt
October 24, 2009
Share

My grandfather Froehlich was a cattleman all of his life. He had the largest independent dairy in south Florida, milking several hundred cows on a 24 hour basis. Having spent all of his life around cows, he had a tendency to equate and philosophize about life via cows. He also had a rather cynical view of humanity, likening them to cows.

He would have a very dismal view of today’s “conservative base”, considering them nothing but cattle.

What happens when people who are NOT Republican acquire enough power to manipulate themselves into the position where they can call the shots?

Okay, they are smart. They are a heck of a lot smarter than “we are”. If we had half their cunning, duplicitous brains, we would know how to manipulate them and not the other way around.

Republicans who allow it are just downright pathetic. That’s what is going on in the GOP today. A minority group of conservatives have terrorized our more spineless Republican officials into thinking THEY ARE THE BASE, when nothing could be farther from the truth.

Why should people who have no relationship with a political party be the ones who call the shots?

They are abusive bullies who have come up with a formula to terrorize our elected officials. When good men like Lindsey stand up to them, well – you can see the results. They lie, denigrate, abuse, and manipulate.

Golly, they are good conservatives!

The far right now thinks Newt Gingrich is not good enough for them. They’ve also turned on Mike Huckabee, but then they never did like Huck. This whole mess is because the NY GOP is absolutely incompetent.

UPDATED: Lindsey Steps in It and the Extreme Right Tells The Usual Lies

UPDATED:  Lindsey Steps in It and the Extreme Right Tells The Usual Lies
October 12, 2009
Share

This is a lesson in the ways the far, far, far right tries to destroy a very good man. It is NOT about normal, decent conservatives, libertarians, and independents. It is about a handful of vile, nasty extreme right conservatives who have absolutely nothing to do with the Republican Party, but spent their venial time doing everything possibly to destroy, defame, and denigrate good, decent men and women who do not agree with them.

The real problem here is the fact that there is no differentiation between “conservative” and “Republican”. We automatically know that when we are dealing with “liberals”, a good 95% of them are Democrats. But – when we are dealing with the term “conservative” that is not the case at all. Most are either Republican or usually vote Republican, but there is a very vocal minority who basically control all things conservative online. They number in their midst some very powerful blogging voices who are regular commentators on FOX. A decent Republican doesn’t stand a chance – until Republicans get smart and start calling down the thunder.

Evidently the mantra of “drill baby drill” is not longer acceptable to the Far Right.

What’s wrong with building new nuclear power plants?

I thought energy independence was a good thing.

Evidently it is, but only if it is proposed by someone other than Lindsey Graham.

The irony here is that what he and John Kerry are proposing isn’t far from what Sarah Palin is advocating.

The real problem – Lindsey is not “pure” enough for the far right. The worst part of this – if Sarah Palin, Tim Pawlenty, Bobby Jindal, Mike Pence, Jim DeMint or even Ron Paul had proposed this the far right would be heralding the breakthrough as a way to defeat the far left.

First, The Pink Flamingo wants to go on record that we are dealing with climate change. I did NOT say global warming. I fear we are going to be hitting a period of global cooling due to the sun. If we experience one big volcanic eruption like Pinatubo, we’re looking at some serious global cooling – major cooling – another minor ice age. 405px-Pinatubo91eruption_clark_air_base There are several things in this life that are consistent. First, always count on Lindsey to throw a curve and step into a fast-ball at the same time. Second, Michelle Malkin is ALWAYS going to lie about his actions. Then trust all the usual little far right flunkies to pick up on her irrational hatred of him.

I can only imagine what Rush is going to do tomorrow.

They say the devil is in the details. If the usual suspects would bother reading the details, they might discover that Lindsey is NOT selling out their precious and somewhat irrational conservative cause that is increasingly costing us votes. But then no one ever accused Michelle Malkin of being a Republican. loghealth Sometimes it just gets plain annoying having to constantly support and defend a man who believes in standing up for something he thinks is right, defending him from the people who don’t possess a small percentage of his honesty and honor. Now though, Lindsey Graham has done the unpardonable….he penned an Op-Ed with John Kerry.

Who knew being a statesman was such a bad thing.

Then again, the far right knows very little about history, or they would know how the Senate actually works.

From The Hill:

“…The two senators wrote that they both agree on five basic premises: (1) climate change is real; (2) the U.S. should take an all-inclusive approach to renewable energy; (3) climate change represents an opportunity to ween the country off foreign oil; (4), climate legislation can’t and won’t cost American jobs; and (5) the bill will protect small businesses….”

Durn – I thought Malkin was conservative.

Obviously she and the usual suspects are once again responding with their usual knee-jerk reactionary far right, anti-GOP hate. Maybe a few of the usual suspects need to read what is really going on here.

I will admit, I was annoyed with Lindsey when I heard he was up to this. I trust him, so I know he is not going to betray our country. I was more annoyed because I’m going to be out there defending what he is going against the usual conservative lies.

Funny thing about lies, you tell them long enough and they are taken as truth. The irony of the fact is the very people who are demanding purity, a return to traditional values, and are constantly damning Obama for his lack of truthfulness. Factual accuracy is a funny thing. It works both ways.

I will be willing to wage my currently very stinky toy poodle that the following usual sources are NOT Republican.

Want to know the real difference between liberals and conservatives?

Liberals usually circle their wagons and stand up for one another.

Conservatives have absolutely no problem eating their own, then going after liberals. The problem is you can’t have it both ways and be intellectually honest, but then intellectual honest is not something the far far right deals with on a regular basis.
