Alan Grayson: racist liar

Yuck it up, you pond scum excrement. You accuse racism (among other outrageous lies in this short email) with absolutely no evidence at all. So you are the racist, you pathetic loser. Shut your hate hole. (image and article via Weasel Zippers).

Root for Tony

Lloyd Marcus is rooting for the investor next door at American Thinker today. I’m with you, Lloyd. Please tell Tony there are a lot of us out here rooting for him, and please keep us posted on his progress.

Also, if you aren’t familiar with Lloyd, you’re missing one of my favorite American Thinker authors. Subscribe to Lloyd’s Facebook page, follow @LloydMarcus on Twitter, and read his blog. I just put his book on the top of my “to read” list. Go Lloyd, go Tony!

Death by asphyxiation? No thanks.

Jen Kuznicki wrote a great article today challenging Ann Coulter.

“So, if we are just to blame Democrats, and suggest that Republicans are trying with all their hearts to loosen the choke-hold, we will surely still die of asphyxiation.” ~Jen Kuznicki (@jen5309)

I’ve got close friends who’ve convinced me that Krav Maga teaches some excellent choke hold counterattacks. I’d prefer a Krav-styled response to statism over Ann’s chosen approach.

Mitt salts the fields

If Mitt’s so darned electable (I’m not buying it), then why did he need to resort to this in Florida?

“[Mitt] had no reason to ask for folks to vote for him, and thus he did not invest much to do so.  The scorched earth of Florida will in no way, shape or form resemble any other state let alone the General Election.  The carpet bombing of Iowa and Florida would simply cost way too much money to duplicate nationally.” ~C. Edmund Wright, on American Thinker

Congratulations on your win last night in Florida, Mitt.  And please accept my November condolences in advance if we’re fool enough to pick you as our GOP nominee.

(Thanks also to C. Edmund Wright for the idea on the title to this post.)

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.

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

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.

Nelson Rockefeller, 41st Vice President of the United States
