throwaway “electability”

Dr. Milton R. Wolf wrote a solid piece on the Mitt Romney electability myth at the Washington Times on December 1st.  Ben Shapiro did a stronger job exploring the “why?” question on Townhall on October 5th regarding Romnelectability.  I’m very concerned that the GOP establishment would choose defeating the Tea Party over defeating Obama.  Shapiro writes “While the so-called GOP opinion leaders wax on about how super-electable [Romney] is, they fail to recognize that it is precisely that logic that gave us the unelectable John McCain.”

Please, fellow conservatives.  How many times do we need to re-learn the lesson that Democrate-lite doesn’t win?  When you hear someone lazily crown Romney as most electable, challenge with a simple question:  why?   This Presidential election is far too important to nominate a Rockefeller Republican.

Ron Paul’s problems are deeper than foreign policy

On Jay Leno, Friday, December 16, Paul said the following of Michele Bachmann:  “She doesn’t like Muslims.  She hates Muslims.  She hates them.  She wants to go get them.”

Paul often spouts the “Why do you think people hate us?” line.  That makes him different from the conspiracy fringe left’s Blame America First crowd how, again?

Huntsville City Schools peddles subsidized netbooks

Subsidized Dell netbooks for all Huntsville City Schools 5th graders?  In this fiscal climate?  Yes, fellow Huntsville sheeples, we are all dumber than a 5th grader.

Didn’t Governor Bentley declare proration for the state of Alabama again in April 2011?  Don’t we have to suffer the drama of faceless bureaucrats firing teachers year after year after year after year in political football?  Should kids hawk garbage no one needs as a solution?  Is the solution to ask taxpaying parents to write checks for supply shortages (golf clap, your local PTA raised $6,512 dollars this year) because of sob stories that the average teacher spends $500 of her own personal money every year?  Maybe collecting boxtops will keep the hamsters busy enough not to pay attention to the hypocrisy?

pretty, pretty. shiny, shiny. funded with Monopoly money.
