What is the difference between Meg Whitman's former housekeeper and Barack Obama?
By now, you have probably heard a lot of GOP establishment elitists lamenting the primary victory of Christine O'Donnell. Now they are attacking her with far greater zeal than they have ever displayed against actual liberal democrats.
She is conservative. She is pro-life. She is pro-gun. She is Christian. She is small government. She is anti-tax. She is for free markets. She is against Obamacare. She is against stimulus spending. She is against cap and trade. On pretty much every policy, she is exactly where the GOP platform says a GOP candidate should be.
So why do they hate her? Simple: she is not one of them.
Here is how the elitists - and by this, I mean the Washington insider elitists of BOTH parties, not the average voter, and certainly not the average conservative - see her:
She is an idiot. She is a crazy, insane, fool. She is a bible-thumping hypocrite who until last week was sacrificing babies to satan. She is an ingnorant, stupid, uneducated hick who didn't go to a real university, and who barely even graduated at all. She is white trash. She is a redneck rube from poor breeding mouth breather bitter clingers and not from a nice old money establishment family. She is a lightweight who can't win an election because she has made mistakes in her past, been involved in legal battles, and doesn't have a lot of her own money. And worst of all, she is just a pretty face, a cute smile, pretty hair and fun glasses. Kind of like that other horrifyingly bad candidate, Sarah Palin.
Oh, and speaking of witch which, Sarah Palin rushed in to endorse her and help her win the primary. That bitch witch.
That is what the elitists think. And that is why they hate her. But it isn't why they attack her so much. The attack her not out of hate, but out of fear. And why? Because her campaign is now a referendum on Sarah Palin. And they fear Sarah Palin.
The elites dread one thing more than just about anything else, and that is Sarah Palin becoming President of the United States. They don't fear it because they fear her policies or what she may do as President - well, except for one thing: flushing out all the elitists from power.
The elitists fear that the Tea Party movement will clean house, and all the elitists in power will no longer have power. Plain and simple. And to the elitists, Sarah Palin IS the Tea Party. And Christine O'Donnell is Sarah Palin by proxy. Defeat O'Donnell, and defeat Palin.
So whenever you hear some pointy headed certified smart person claiming to be a good conservative Republican and ranting about how horrific Christine O'Donnell is and how stupid the Tea Party is for nominating her and how she will lose her election, just remember what they are really saying: we hate Sarah Palin, you stupid ignorant bible thumping bitter clinger white trash idiot.
If you believe in what the Tea Party stands for, support Christine O'Donnell. If you think Sarah Palin is your friend and not your enemy, support Christine O'Donnell. If you think it is time to make good on Nancy Pelosi's pledge to drain the swamp, support Christine O'Donnell. If you believe Washington is broken and the establishment elitists are to blame, support Christine O'Donnell.
If none of that applies to you... well... just come clean and admit you want to elect committed marxist and Reid lap dog Coon instead. I'd respect you more if you were at least honest about it.
Wow... this makes no sense to me.
Anyone else see the irony of harshly attacking a fellow Republican for... harshly attacking fellow Republicans?
Seriously, though: I strongly believe in Reagan's 11th Commandment - but you have to draw a line in the sand SOMEWHERE, where you say "once you cross this line, as far as I am concerned, you are no longer a Republican worthy of the 11th Commandment." Where is that line? Well, it varies for all. For Bob, it was supporting the largest tax grab in Oregon's history. I can respect that. That's a well defined line.
If you have no line, then what is to stop democratics from just saying "oh yeah, we're Republicans now" and demanding party support?
Draw your line - and defend it!
Jack, it is time for you to realize: the era of playing nice is over. We are in the greatest crisis most of us (all of us born after 1945) have ever experienced in our lifetimes. Playing nice will destroy America. We need to fight hard and win without any more "compromise" pushing America further to the left towards the precipice of outright socialism.
Well, we may have lost a good congressional candidate, but we gained a good county commissioner candidate.
I think this is a smart move for Leiken. I just don't think Defazio is vulnerable enough right now. Don't get me wrong - I think Leiken is a great guy and the best potential challenger for the seat. And Defazio has to go! But right now, it looks like Defazio is still too entrenched.
This move allows Leiken to expand his political experience outside of Springfield and sets him up for a number of 2012 and 2014 options. I'd like to see him run for treasurer in 2012 and help turn Oregon's finances around.
Nancy Pelosi led the democratics to pass the House version of comprehensive government health care.
Naturally, Oregon's democratics voted along with her.
Here is what Sid Leiken has to say about it:
Government takeover of Healthcare has long been one of DeFazio’s signature issues. The fact that he was one of the last holdouts to vote for it shows how unpopular this bill is at home, especially the $400 Billion in Medicare cuts.
As I wrote in my recent Op-Ed, to understand the local impact of DeFazio’s vote we need only look at the financial consequences on our ambulance services, which are struggling to stay afloat just with current government reimbursements. With DeFazio voting to further cut Medicare funding and expand government control we can now look forward to more serious economic challenges here at home.By voting for this bill DeFazio is ignoring the biggest issue: jobs. Community based businesses have long been the job creators in South West Oregon. With the new horrendous tax burdens and unfunded mandates that DeFazio’s vote now places on them we will continue to have double digit unemployment.
Next year’s elections will come down to these major issues; who can improve our economy and bring jobs, who will stop deficit spending and increased taxes, and do we want greater government control of our lives. With the long history of high unemployment in his district, and his unsustainable deficit spending votes, we have long known where DeFazio stands. By casting one of the deciding votes for government run healthcare, DeFazio has clearly shown us where he stands, a blatant disregard for the economic needs of seniors, the unemployed and the small businesses of our district.
Don't get me wrong. I am certainly NOT saying "give no money to Republicans." What I am saying is "give directly to the conservative Republican candidates you support," and "stop giving money to organizations that will use your donations to support radical liberals like Dede."
Can you hear me now, GOP?
Liberal moonbat "republican" Dede Scozzafava has left the building.
This is of monumental importance. The GOP "leadership" can now do one of two things moving into the 2010 and 2012 election cycles:
1) Embrace real conservatism, which overwhelmingly defeats liberalism, or,
2) Continue to lose elections and allow the left to transform our nation into a socialist state.
ARE YOU LISTENING, GOP?

Remember not long ago a post about the 25% unemployment rate for teens?
Hold on to your hats, people. It has more than doubled.
When the next election comes, you can bet that the youth movement won't give a crap about Iraq, Gitmo, race, or fancy speeches. Or Bush bashing. No, the next time around, the youth vote will be overwhelmingly in favor of the candidate who can articulate a sound fiscal policy that will promote job growth.
