Last week, as usual, Lindsey put his foot in it by telling the truth. One of his suggestions is that the GOP work withRead More
The first question of the day: Are the Tea Party Ron Paul Bot Losertarian Patriots getting ready to throw Jim DeMint under the bus?Read More
The following is The Pink Flamingo’s first post – October 4, 2005. I’ve left the original color and the atrocious spelling. I’ve found thatRead More
Sean Hannity and Eric Erickson have declared that the Reagan Revolution was NOT about conservative values but Reagan himself. Yep, he’s no longer goodRead More
Monday on Hannity’s show, he and Eric Erickson threw Ronald Reagan under the bus. According to them, the Reagan Revolution was not about conservative,Read More
“”Thou shalt not speak ill of any fellow Republican.” The Pink Flamingo wonders if you remember an old black/white ad about pollution and America.Read More
Ronald Reagan once said that if someone agreed with him 80% of the time they were political friends. The Pink Flamingo complains all theRead More
The Pink Flamingo has had enough of the lamenting of the death of the Constitution, the fact that the country allegedly has no honorRead More
Ron Paul redefines the term “Losertarian”. For Lew Rockwell, he wrote the following: “…Our foreign policy was in the spotlight last week, which isRead More

On Wednesday, during the 5:50 HE, our new priest did a thing about William White, the Bishop of Pennsylvania, a truly fascinating individual. EvenRead More
The other night, The Pink Flamingo was watching one of the great American classics, To Kill a Mockingbird. For those ignorant wretches who have not seen the movie nor read the classic book, you have my pity. Atticus Finch (played by the late, great Gregory Peck) was the ultimate Southern attorney living in a small town. He understood that all men and women are equal, no matter what their color, nor their what was in their pocketbook.
When the haters could not crush Atticus Finch for going against their demands by defending a Black man innocent of the rape charges filed against him by a white trash woman, they tried to kill his children. There’s not much difference between the man who tried to kill the children of Atticus Finch and the tea party “patriots” who try killing the reputations and careers of good and honorable men and women who absolutely refuse to bend to their will.Read More
“…I’ve always said I was a Reagan-style conservative. But I don’t think Reagan was a real Republican. He just maintained some shared values….” Glenn Beck
Losertarians are crowing about the nomination of Nikki Haley in South Carolina. She is one of them. They love her. Makes sense. Then there is the idiocy in Idaho, where the Losertarians have taken over the GOP. They’re scary, demanding a repeal of the 17th Amendment.
Are the Tea Parties an off-shoot of the John Birch Society?Read More
One thing you gotta love about liberals is their way to out-manouver the right every time. During a long weekend when we need to be going after Obama, they decided to offer up Lindsey for the far right to crucify with their usual far right class. Few conservatives have the courage to admit that Lindsey is right. But then again, the whole idea is to spend the weekend beating up on Lindsey Graham rather than Barack Obama.Read More
A few weekends ago The Pink Flamingo made the mistake of watching a Star Wars marathon on television. Please accept my apologies for the analogy.
When Princess Leia remarked that Han Solo “certainly was brave”, Luke wanted to know what good it would do if he got himself killed. When it comes to bravery, Lindsey is brave – because he knows how to be a statesman. In the age of the Tea Party “patriots” who are basically little more than losertarian shills for the likes of the Pauls, and a few other losertarians, anyone who dares step out of line.
They’re doomed!Read More

“…While I have supported black studies programs and as a trustee, one must really ask whether the demand for a completely autonomous is not in reality a request for sanctuary from the rigors of the institution, a sanctuary from the normal standards? If that is what it is then what in reality, will these students have when they leave the institution, what will they have learned, and will they be able to compete in the outside world. On the other hand, it is possible that you can justify a black studies program on its symbolic value alone. But an all black studies department would not be useful. What we really should do is get some whites into the black studies department to learn something about black people. …” Ronald Reagan!
There are very few times when I disagree with Michael Medved. This is one of them. The other day he was discussing ethnic studies. Rightly he does not actually approve of them. Neither do I in their current form, but the Pink Flamingo thinks one of the very real problems we are facing as a nation is the fact that we Americans have become so insular that we expect cultures to adapt to us. We need not learn anything about others. Once upon a time it was called “The Ugly American”. Today we call it conservative.
Once upon a time, the GOP was the party of Ronald Reagan. Unfortunately, in the quest for libertarian purity, the ascendancy of Ron Paul, the Club for Growth, and absolutes, Ronald Reagan has been thrown under the bus and completely forgotten.
Reagan is dead, long live Ron Paul and Jim DeMint. It is now about egos and power. Forget doing what is right for the country, it is about a populist movement that is out of control, and a news network that is feeding it.
Perhaps it is all about keeping Barack Obama in power, for that is what is going to happen if the current trends continue.Read More
If Ronald Reagan were in office today, he would be a primary target of the Club for Growth. Is is someone who would not be conservative enough and pure enough for them.
Is the Club for Growth a front for the DNC? It is just a gag question, but the way they destroy good Republicans is serious.Read More
Did you know that only Hispanics are dangerous racists? That is the lie currently being promoted by the far right. They absolutely refuse to acknowledge the racist mote in their own eye. Take Patrick J. Buchanan, please. (NOTE: The Pink Flamingo does not like linking to World Nut Daily. I will list the URL and you go find it.
“…Indeed, of the last seven justices nominated by Democrats JFK, LBJ, Bill Clinton and Barack Obama, one was black, Marshall; one was Puerto Rican, Sonia Sotomayor. The other five were Jews: Arthur Goldberg, Abe Fortas, Ruth Bader Ginsberg, Stephen Breyer and Elena Kagan.
If Kagan is confirmed, Jews, who represent less than 2 percent of the U.S. population, will have 33 percent of the Supreme Court seats.
“…Ultimately, Rand Paul is a walking target for Democratic negative ads in a closely divided state with a culture of commitment to national security. But right now running the country – or even winning elections – is not a top-of-mind concern for many Republicans. They are voting to send a message, and it’s no time to be fussy about the background, competence, associations, and inner convictions of the messengers….” David Frum
The Pink Flamingo is waiting for the day when Republicans will garner the courage to oust the Ron Paul Bots and thumb our collective noses at the so called Tea Party “Patriots” many of whom are NOT Republicans.Read More
The Ron Paul ego trip continues. In Iowa, his Bots managed to stage a small coup (the way they have done in SC, OK, UT, etc). Now they are promoting this idiot for POTUS.
“...Since the 2008 caucuses, no potential presidential candidate has visited Iowa more than Ron Paul. With a friendlier SCC, a tailor made political environment, and a wealth of knowledge from his previous run, Ron Paul could be a force to be reckoned with in the 2012 Iowa caucuses.
The far right Tea Party “patriots” have turned on Sarah Palin because she has endorsed Carly Fiorina. Fiorina is NOT good enough for the Tea Party people. Evidently they are finally showing their true colors. They are bullies! If their childish demands are not met, they will destroy. So, their long knives are out for Palin.
If they continue on their current path, they are going to do serious damage to the GOP in November. Someone needs to explain to the far right media that the tea parties are NOT about conservative – they are about promoting LOSERTARIANS.Read More
