NY-23 It’s a Mad Mad Mad Mad World

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.

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

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.
