Now They’ve Turned on Newt

Now They’ve Turned on Newt
October 24, 2009

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.

Unfair and Unbalanced

Unfair and Unbalanced
October 4, 2009
Share

One of the biggest canards in the “conservative” sphere is the idea that FOX News is fair and balanced. Once upon a time it might have been. But no longer. Not only have they abandoned (for the most part) the Democrats point of view but there is no longer even theefford made to present the Republican side of things. There are exceptions in the fair and balanced thing such as Neil Cavuto, Chris Wallace, Greta Van Susteren and Bret Baier but that’s about it. It looks like the only Republican who gets a fair shot these days is Mike Huckabee.

This morning, if what The Pink Flamingo saw is now SOP, the GOP is in serious trouble. Even more than that, any possibility of defeating Obama and theDems next year is simply a pipe dream. Now, not content to flaunt the Libertarian agenda of Glenn Beck FOX anchors are involved in outright prevarications and obfuscation when it comes to what the GOP is doing.

This afternoon, when I ordered my copy of Sarah Palin’s book, Going Rogue: An American Life, it was ranked #241 on Amazon. At 8PM MT, when I checked, the book was ranked #11. Success is the very best revenge!

Don’t worry, though. Liberals are already trying to denigrate her. They’re working overtime.

Quite honestly, I don’t know how Sarah Palin does it.

She woman endures. Republican still relate to her.

Sarah_Palin_38

Not only did she became the poster child for emotional abuse no one should be forced to endure, but she persevered. She put up with a tremendous amount of betrayal from within the GOP, primarily from rank Romney supporters who were alleged to be helping her.

Then, she is forced to go through a series of ethics complaints designed to destroy she and her family financially. When she took the only logical action available to her, she was labeled a quitter.

Remember how Barack Obama promised he would go out and make the world see us as warm and cuddly after George W. Bush used that proverbial big stick to beat the you know what out of our enemies? Well, he’s sure going around appeasement of the wrong people.

The Pink Flamingo has this theory that history is cyclical. I just never thought it would repeat itself so quickly. The way it looks today, in 2012 we’re going to be repeating the 1980 election. I just hope we have someone like Sarah Palin who can take our current version of Jimmy Carter and wipe the floor with him. The way it stands today, I don’t see anyone else who can do it, and pull off a nomination. Naturally the press will crucify her. Right now we’re dealing with someone worse than Jimmy Carter.

Iran can make a bomb.
