I was going to post this last week, but God got angry. I was coming down from a mountain hike at the time, when I saw everyone dancing naked around a golden image of Jeb Bush, chanting chirpers, chirpers, chirp …
Well, let’s not get into that. Suffice to say the original tablets got broken and now I have to write out the whole thing in longhand all by myself.
I tried to tell God to get an important person for this danged job—a politician or, like, I don’t know, give Charles Krauthammer an epiphany or something—anyone but Regular Right Guy. But, well, there’s God for you, huh?
In the meantime.
Robert Stacy McCain [excerpted]:
Checking his biography, I’m glad to see that Bevin is a graduate of Washington & Lee University, a U.S. Army veteran, and a small business owner — exactly the kind of outsider “not a politician” profile anyone would want in a Tea Party candidate. If grassroots conservatives in Kentucky rally behind Bevin, I think we can start chilling the champagne for Mitch McConnell’s retirement party. However, defeating the party’s Senate leader in a primary would be completely unprecedented.
If this is Star Wars, Luke Skywalker and the rebel alliance can’t expect Darth Vader to surrender the Empire without a fight. Or can we? …
We were standing outside the Continental Lounge in Rosslyn, Va., while the young Republican operative explained it to me. “All they care about is getting their chairmanships back, and they don’t care how they get there,” said the operative. “They don’t want to spend any money, so they were looking for a self-funder.”
“They” are Republican senators, and what my friend was explaining was the otherwise inexplicable decision of the National Republican Senatorial Committee to endorse Charlie Crist in the Florida Senate race — 15 months before the primary! …
The “Not One Red Cent” rebellion was the first shot of a guerrilla struggle, with the Tea Party grassroots as the ragtag insurgents in a long war for control of the Republican Party that has not ended yet, and won’t end — cannot end — until the rebels have utterly vanquished the Beltway GOP Establishment and their go-along-to-get-along philosophy of bipartisan compromise. There is nothing that the present-day Democrat Party believes in that any patriotic American can endorse, and all talk of “bipartisanship” is anathema. [More spot-on political brilliance here]
Well, he does go on a bit, but the thrust of RSM’s message—and this is exactly what God gave me before I got angry coming down the mountain and busted the freaking tablets—is that now is the time to rally behind Tea Party candidates like Matt Bevin, and if at all possible force tired, institutionally corrupt RINOs to retire before they take this thing over the cliff.
You Republicans know RRG loves you to death… but John Boehner. You know?
BONG!!! Last minute revision: crowd-source their records (product quality) and zing the info off to your friends.
