In Kentucky, the latest polling puts Rand Paul ahead of Trey Grayson in the primary, but Grayson would defeat the Democrat candidates handily. Paul would barely squeek by if he were to win at all. Rand Paul is a sure fire way for the GOP to lose a Republican held Senate seat. The Pink Flamingo WOULD NOT vote for Rand Paul. I would not vote for the Dem, but I sure WOULD NOT vote for Rand Paul. Only 19% of people in KY see themselves as “Tea Party”. Let’s just hope Kentucky goes the way of Indiana and the Tea Party candidate gets squashed.
In Arizona, Jan Brewer single handedly destroyed the future of the Republican Party by signing the racial profiling and harassment …Read the Rest
Did you know that a group who does not have an actual leader is ripe for a narcissist to step up and take over as the leader.
“...A study published in the journal Personality and Social Psychology Bulletin suggests that when a group is without a leader, you can often count on a narcissist to take charge. Researchers found that people who score high in narcissism tend to take control of leaderless groups….”
This has absolutely fascinating implications for the GOP and says something rather damning about the Dems! It also does not speak well for losertarians and their Ron Paul fixation. Let’s just be honest that the face of narcissism is Ron Paul!
The latest attempt for Losertarians to destroy Lindsey is a thing of beauty. I am impressed. It has it all, religion, anti-immigration, slam the SPLC, the Anti-Christ, Chuck Schumer, Club for Growth, and and a Losertarian front group that is making money slamming good Republicans like Lindsey and Newt. It is like one of those infomertials where you get double your pleasure for just $19.99

Are you tired of the trash talk?
Are you tired of the hype?
Are you sick of tea?

Do you feel we are not doomed?
Sick of talk radio?
Would like to hear a “normal” person do talk politics?

Crossing fingers and saying prayers for Scott Brown. If he can pull it off, and it is looking better than ever, it will be because of MODERATE INDEPENDENTS. Conservatives are working like crazy for him, but there are some third party Losertarians who are holding strong with their conscience.
Please, pass the cool, tart, slightly sweet, perfect political lemonade. Enjoy every drop of it.
No one has a better grasp on the political picture of the country today than Michael Medved, who is the only 100% PURE Republican radio show host. He is pragmatic enough to understand that conservatives cannot win an election. Liberals cannot win an election. The greatest majority of voters are independent – and moderate.
Let me state up front, Populist Movements and Populism absolutely repulse me.
Having spent so many years dealing with the after-effects of serious abuse when I was a child (3rd grade elementary school principal) I have a tendency to be rather analytical when dealing with people and groups of people. I also do not mind admitting I am rather stand-offish, do not join things, do not do crowds, and avoid meetings and conferences like the plague. When recovering from serious abuse, if a person wants to “normalize” their personality, then you learn how to look at the world much differently from what you once did. You become highly critical of yourself and learn how to take absolute responsibility for your actions. (I think this is a 12 Step thing, also). In a way you start viewing things with a little bit of cold blooded Vulcan logic.
This said, one of the things I’ve also learned is that there are certain personality types who absolutely refuse to take responsibility for their own action and blame everyone around them. They deal in absolutes, and can be absolute bullies when it comes to their absolute requirements.
Have you ever had someone with whom you had a romantic interest who was more demanding than “usual”? The world must revolve around them. You know something isn’t “quite right” but you just can’t figure what it is, so you end up surrendering a portion of your personality to that person in order to keep peace. Before long you are going to be required to surrender more and more if you do not want your “loved” one shouting profanities, slamming you against the wall, or withdrawing their presence from your life. (Yea, I had one fiancé who wanted to know if I could survive if he withdrew his presence from my life).
There is nothing wrong with a healthy ego and a healthy sense of self. When an ego and a sense of “self” becomes so over-whelming that other egos and another sense of “self” cannot shine through, then we are dealing with a personality disorder. The loved one has a temper tantrum because something does not go their way. While I can see having a tantrum once in awhile, primarily for righteous indignation, having a tantrum when something does not go your way is the sign of a very emotional stunted individual.
The loved one manipulates. They threaten. They blackmail. If they do not get their desired results they destroy. The more civilized person simply destroys the spirit and emotional well-being of those they “love”. If the person does not have certain parameters of a civilized behavior they will literally inflict bodily harm and eventually, if not stopped, kill the object of their “love”.
In other words, there is a certain kind of person who is so certain they are right that they will stop at nothing to prove they are right, and will destroy in order to prove their point. There are times when these individuals happen to be on the fringes of society they have a tendency to bond with other like minded bullies. Their sense of individualism is not as well developed as they project. They become a “group” and a mob. Enfranchised by other like minded individuals, they become more embolden and more extreme.
Some people call it populism. I call it a mob. They are no different from the people who collected around Oliver Cromwell, John Brown or William Quantrill. Left alone, our little bully is simply going to destroy his/her spouse or loved one. As a mob they are terrifying and can bring down monarchies, murder hundreds of people, or help instigate civil war.
The Pink Flamingo is beginning to wonder just how many Republicans are willing to stand up to the Ron Paul Bots and have the courage to PURGE them from grass-roots GOP leadership positions through out the country. My sources tell me in Oklahoma the purge is on. Evidently in South Carolina, only Lindsey had the courage to stand up to these nut-jobs, and now they are taking their revenge. The real crime – with only a few exceptions, The Palmetto Scoop, CNN and The Pink Flamingo NO ONE is reporting what actually happened at the meeting. The far right is so far gone in their hatred of Lindsey that they would rather lie about what happened.
On Monday night the Lexington County GOP voted 13-7 to censure Lindsey. The Ron Paul Bot who engineered the illegal procedure, Talbert Black is NOT a Republican. Black, a Ron Paul Bot nutcase is the idiot who promoted the illegal procedure.
“…Talbert Black, of Lexington, believes Graham has tried to marginalize him and others, noting a comment the senator made in October that the GOP does not want to limit itself as a party of angry white men. “When you have somebody so willing to compromise with those who aren’t conservative, and belittles those who are conservative, we need to do something about that,” said Black, the state coordinator of Campaign for Liberty, a group dedicated to personal liberty and fiscal conservatism that spawned after Paul’s 2008 presidential campaign. As precinct president, Black proposed the resolution while filling in for a committeeman. Graham said Black, a 40-year-old software engineer, had never voted for a Republican presidential nominee; Black said he hasn’t voted for his party’s presidential pick since 1992….”
There is a war brewing in the GOP, caused not by Republicans and not by actual conservatives, but by the slobbering minions who follow Ron Paul and his freaky message of appeasement, conspiracy theories, and outright hate.
The very real problem is the fact that very few of those who are part of the Far Right and are not Ron Paul Bots have the courage to stand up against the fake conservative onslaught of their attack. Add that with the fact that there are very few Republicans who have the actual courage to stand up against them and we have what could be a serious crises.
Here we go again.
Don’t you get tired of reading all the lies about Lindsey (and most other Republicans) thrown at us by Losertarians, the far right, and some misc. “tea party patriots”?
Well, here comes another whopper.
Why do Libertarians losertarians hate Lindsey? What’s up? Why all the Cato Institute backed hits on him?
The Cato Institute is sponsoring yet ANOTHER hit on Lindsey. Funny how they seem to be the only ones actually doing the attacking. Makes you wonder why, doesn’t it? It sure makes The Pink Flamingo want to ask a few questions. It also makes The Pink Flamingo a little annoyed, okay furious, the way libertarians, conservatives, and the far right tea party crowd keeps LYING about his position.
