Everything you know is wrong...

It's time to forget everything you thought you believed regarding the end times.

Here is the truth of it.

Now go away so Alaska can miss you properly.

Tea Partiers will be abandoned...

If the Tea Party, which claims to be a grass-roots movement and was unarguably responsible for so many of the Republican wins in the mid-terms, sits still, sits passively by, while the Repos ignore, obfuscate, and angle their way around the essential things against which the Tea Party claims to stand, then the Tea Party deserves what it gets, is welcome to the Republican Party, and will lose any credibility it might have had.

That people are pissed is the real issue; the problem is at whom they're pissed.

If the Tea Party isn't getting angrier daily with the mealy-mouthed lip service the Repos are engaging in, then they're drinking the Kool-Aid, not the tea, and the Tea Party-Repo marriage will end badly.

Real or not real; I just can't tell...

I read this article and I just can't tell if the goofball interviewed in it is for real or if it's just a spoof, a fake story, if he's making this up for publicity.

Seriously, if it is a real news story, if this person actually exists, and if he actually believes what he's saying, how could
anyone with even half their brain functioning want to give their customers "their blackout?"


He goes on to say that "people like to blackout?"

Really? Where have I been? What the hell is going on here?

Please, someone, explain this to me.

Dear Mr. Griffin,

Although I pretty much know that you will never read this, writing it made me feel better.

OK. I get it.
Keith Olbermann messed up. He violated an MSNBC policy that attempts to maintain the appearance of impartiality.

Point taken. But do you or anyone else at MSNBC really believe that Countdown with Keith Olbermann is anything but fact-based opinion journalism? C'mon... even the most casual observer can see that
Keith has a Liberal agenda.

Wow, there's a shocker.

Keith howls nightly at the right AND at the left (and occasionally at the moon), but he works from facts not from fantasy and he is always fair.

MSNBC needs to play fair as well, let his suspension be a lesson to him, and reinstate Keith Olbermann now.


Because MSNBC...
  1. Cannot afford to lose him (because Rachel, Lawrence, et al., can't do it alone),
  2. Can ill afford to lose viewers like me (and others like me),
  3. Needs all the help it can get to balance out the right-wingnuts at Fox (and please be honest, this is what you do AND this is what they are), and
  4. Must continue to offer perspective and proportion to the hyperbolic-far-right-leaning propaganda media-machine (because this is what it is) that lives across the road.
Thank you.
With kindest regards...

The devils you know and don't know...

The Christine O'Donnell debacle has been instructive in terms of who holds the power on the right versus who wants it.

After O'Donnell proved (again) that her right-wingnuttiness was replete, Karl Rove came out swinging saying she wasn't accomplished enough to be a senator. Sure, King Karl backed off this rare honesty the next day, after Rushbo, SaPal, et al., leaned on him, but Karl was right (yes, I said this) and the truth was out there: Karl Rove does not take the Tea Party seriously.

I'll say it again: Karl Rove does not take the Tea Party seriously.

A bell can't be un-rung and with Karl's comments we clearly heard a prelude to what is to come for the Repos in the months leading up to 2012: Karl (old-world Repo mastermind) and Sarah (Rush's hand puppet) will be at odds, will split, will push their own versions of the future of the Republican Party, and will end up fracturing the Republican Party to the extent that the Tea Party will become a legitimate force in American politics, and not just a far-right wing of the Repos.

As much as the old-world Republicans (led by Rove) say Dems are out of touch with the people who comprise the Tea Party (led by Sarah Palin), the Republicans are
more out of touch with them because they're cynically using the Tea Party to their own ends and will toss the Tea Party aside as soon as they get what they want. QED

My prediction?

Sarah Palin will win the Republican Primary, Barrack Obama will win a second term (and Karl Rove will banish himself to a Pacific Island never to be heard from again... OK... maybe this last one is wishful thinking.)


Because Karl Rove was right about Christine O'Donnell.
