control freaks, divide!

Queue the elitist drone:

Don’t waste your vote. The time has come to… If you don’t jump on the bandwagon now, we’re risking… We need to get behind the electable candidate… There’s no mathematical way… He’s not the most conservative candidate in the race, but… He’s the only candidate who can beat O…

Oh, save your breath already. I’m an informed voter, and I think just fine for myself, thank you. Leave the control freak crapola to the Democrat Party. They’re better at it than you’ll ever be. You’re asking me not to vote my conscience, and instead fall in line with your Karl Rove-ish architectural (*cough*) “genius”? Who elected you more American than I? Why should your vote count more than mine? Sorry, I’m just not as wowed by your superior intellect as you seem to be. Look left if your oversized ego craves the false religion of intelligentsia worship.

Conservatism wins on substance. RINO “lib light” loses every time it’s tried. You worry about your vote – I’ve got mine covered.

Calm down, Ann

Ann Coulter is not happy about South Carolina last weekend.

“I am pretty sure we’ll get everyone who voted for McCain — since no one voted for McCain because we liked McCain — it was to stop Obama.” – Ann, surely you’re not arguing for 2008 as the GOP success model?  Many of us held our noses and voted for the next guy in line (made slightly more palatable because Palin was on the ticket), and that lack of enthusiastic support resulted directly in 4 solid years of wanton destruction of the country we love so dearly.  So no ma’am – you will not “get everyone” [emphasis mine] simply because you’re siding with the GOP machine that’s desperately trying to give us our marching orders.

“I think South Carolina is going back to its Democratic roots” – So Ann, supporters of Newt are now old-style Democrats?  Look, we’re not arguing that Newt is the purest of conservatives – that’s your strawman, not ours.  Are you arguing that Mitt is?  There are a lot of us out here not buying it.  You’re not giving equivalent scrutiny to the guy you’re supporting.

If Romney’s so rock solid, then what’s all this rush about?  Give conservative Americans in many states the chance to pick our guy.  We resent your ongoing scolding lecture.

We are not a football team

(hat tip Minus the Bear’s awesome tune for article title)

Will we allow propaganda hacks, the GOP establishment, Ann Coulter, and Karl Rove to prop up the next man in line, just because we’re too afraid to be aligned with the losing guy at the buzzer?  Remember, propaganda hacks will gleefully jump ship the instant all other GOP contenders are gone, no matter who the nominee is.  C’mon folks, we’re not lap dogs, and we’re talking about our country here, not your fantasy football league.

character destruction on parade

Look at that Real Clear Politics graph, and stop me when you’ve heard this tune before:
