Balaam's Ass, if you will. . .

Dear GOP,

Worrying about the messenger is a luxury afforded in good times.

When the house is on fire, I’ll listen to whomever has the blueprint for the exits.

I think the blueprints just went through the shredder at 1600 Pennsylvania. I'm not sure that anything or anyONE can stop what is coming!

Steele is more evidence on why the Republicans are losing elections. Why vote for pretend Democrats when you can vote for the real thing?

The GOP won elections when they presented a Consevative policy. They lose when they do not. It does not seem to hard to me to get it.

In 1980 Reagan brought the libertarian minded into the GOP fold with his ideas of fiscal conservatism. We supported Reagan and then both the Bush campaigns. But both father and son Bush took our votes for granted and could not believe that we would not support them. Some of us did vote reluctantly for McCain but many didn't vote at all or cast a ballot for a third part.

Now, consider that maybe as much as 12 percent of the voters are neo-libertarian...the GOP cannot win without our support and they have lost it!

I posted this over at Walt's site this morning, but it was a good enough rant that I figured I'd share it here as well.

The news always promotes misery and fear, and right now there seems to be a glut of both. Look at the facile idiot in the white house. Look at the facile idiot in charge of the RNC. Political correctness, and white guilt hammered home for decades, now have brought us these affirmitive action fools. How cool! We have black guys in power now. We have mediocre intellects in power- men who on the basis of their actual ability should be third or fouth tier functionaries. But they are in the driver's seat because they are black men, and this population is so pussy whipped afraid of being called racist that they'll let these morons crash the system rather than put them in their proper place. Iran grows bolder. islam strengthens its grip on Euope. The engines of commerce, and industry that propelled America to greatness are grinding to a stop, and the enviro weenies are gleefully throwing sand in the gears to save their god, Gaia. These fools have the reins of power. And the mouthpieces and viewfinders of the media. We're in deep shit. I'm not yearning. I'm angry. A commenter over at Vanderleun's site yesterday was advocating, as I've heard others advocate, that we engage lefties at every opportunity- counter their arguments; defeat them in ideological street fights. I hate to sound defeatist, but doing that is pissing in the wind. I don't want piss all over my jeans.

You do have a point there, John. I propose we just ridicule them. It's easy, they supply the ammo themselves. Besides, it really burns them up. :^)

Michael Steele, makin' the Lefties proud. We have a collaborator in our midst, but he blew his cover.
