When I first conceived in 1999, and even when I finally commissioned in 2003, the following:
Well, the TP movement shows that Americans are sick and tired of lacking a real opposition party to the bipartisan, constitution shredding, power-greedy Statists in Washington.
And the GOP leadership has been showing some good signs of acceding to the will of the people as represented by the Tea Party.
But today all bets are off. It's all been lip-service my friends.
The following story by DrewM at Ace's place firmly reestablishes that our problem with the GOP is that they are just as much a part of the ruling class as the other disgusting party despite the presence of one or two good people still in the Senate GOP.
Murky: My Pals In The Senate Think I Can Win This Write In Thing
DrewM goes on to note
In other RINOrific news...Sources are telling Jim Geraghty that's it's 50/50 on whether or not Mike Castle runs a write in campaign for the Senate in Delaware.
"The GOP establishment would be going crazy if tea party candidates decided to run 3rd party campaigns in the general and rightly so. Now they need to show the same anger towards their own."But they won't my friends. The Republicans and the Democrats have been getting along with each other since at least that time in the late 90's. The CSPAN cameras had just broadcast Senate Majority and Minority Leaders, Daschle and Lott (I forget which was which and over what) threw verbal brickbats at each other. Immediately after that was over, the same cameras happened to catch the two of them -- thinking they were out of camera range -- hugging each other.
I always imagined they were telling each other
"Good show -- the boobs at home bought our BS."
Are you still buying it?
