Capon Republicans

A capon is a cockerel that has had his roosterly parts removed.  In that, the unfortunate fowl bears more than a passing resemblance to many professional politicians serving in the Republican Party, the very clucks whom we elected to pull the country back from the Obamunist brink.  Bloviating Zeppelin reveals just what’s in the birdbrains of these Capon Republicans (Republicans To Conservatives: Go To Hell):

Here is an actual unguarded opinion from the GOP, aimed directly at TEA Partiers, true Conservatives and various budget hawks. One GOP aide unloaded on the Conservatives, offering a more colorful view privately held by many other Republicans. From the DailyCaller:

“These people aren’t thinking clearly. Their logic doesn’t pan out. They have NO plan. What concessions were they going to get if it failed? They were going to shut down the federal government over Planned Parenthood?” the source said, “It was totally reactionary. These people got elected to lead. Instead they got jerked around by the political equivalent of music critics. If these people knew anything about governing, they’d be in Congress, not lobbing bombs from the cheap seats and sending out fundraising emails.”

The aide offered contempt for Pence in particular. “Pence is running for governor, and has to get through a primary, so his position is about as genuine as a $10 Gucci hand bag on Sunset Boulevard.”

The adjutant cited above, while demonstrating a decided talent for catchy analogy, seems to be woefully lacking in any corresponding ability to interpret auspices that should be as  apparent to him as a pair of brown shoes with a tuxedo. The landslide recall of Mayor Carlos Alvarez by the voters Miami-Dade County is presented as a cautionary lesson to profligate Pachyderms everywhere:

Miami-Dade County Mayor Carlos Alvarez was booted from office in the largest recall of a local politician. The result was never in question: 88 percent of those who turned out voted for his ouster.

Voters gave the once-popular mayor increased authority four years ago to clean up the county government. But pay hikes to staffers, property tax hikes increases during a real estate bust, and the controversial stadium for the Florida Marlins outraged his constituents.

Hugh Hewitt provides even more augury in the Washington Examiner (Tea Party will back Democrats challenging GOP big spenders in 2012):

Watch the April 16 rallies of the Tea Parties this year. The Tea Party Patriots will be holding a huge rally in Sacramento, Calif., and the rhetoric that day won’t be about Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid, but about the faithless GOP, and especially about the GOP appropriators who are blocking the caucus from taking the steps needed to slash government’s size, scope and cost.

[…] This past week the appropriators went public, attacking the deficit hawks and using anonymous staffers to savage conservative budget-cutters inside and outside of the Congress. That petulant move alone cost the NRCC thousands and thousands of dollars, as it became obvious that large numbers of GOP appropriators are no more conservative than your average Democrat on matters of spending, and the party’s contributors aren’t in the habit of sending help to the other side.

The Capon Republicans need to stop scratching around the barnyard looking for more feed and think instead about protecting the few eggs that remain in the hen house.  Who knows, some of them may even find their missing parts.

    Ouch! lol

    These guys lost their manhood years ago. That is why conservative women need to take the lead… and Sarah Palin is showing the way.

      VF, I got this in E-mail today from Rasmussen:

      Voters’ views of President Obama’s leadership style have rebounded from last month’s all-time low.

      A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey – taken on Sunday and Monday – finds that 44% of Likely U.S. Voters now give the president good or excellent marks for leadership while 37% give him poor marks as a leader.

      Now just who the hell are the 44%? We need to have them institutionalized immediately.

    Lately, Ah say lately, the GOP has been about as sharp as a bowling ball… 😛

    And I have warned of this repeatedly, the GOP will tell you ANYTHING you want to hear as long as you vote for them, just like the Dems and any other political party, but once the voting is done, it’s back to business as usual, hooray for US and SCREW YOU!!

    • Bob Mack says:

      You’d think that the dumb clucks would take heed of the fate of Mayor Alvarez. If the Pachyderms don’t rid themselves of RINOs, it’s 3rd party time–which I don’t want to see because that plays right into the left hands of the socialists…er, Democrats.

  3. Matt says:

    The RINOs seem to be almost asking for a third party. I wonder if the know history, and what happened to the Whigs?

    • Bob Mack says:

      Ah, the Whigs…they gave a Party and no one came. I don’t know, Matt, how many bricks do the Dem-lites have to be hit in the head with before they realize their chimney’s caving in?

  4. LOL most excellent writing Mr Macky. It is infuriating, though, that these people can be so thick. They still don’t get the message. They will eventually, one way or another.

  5. I wish I could say that i was optimistic about the future but I’d have to lie. Did you see the Pew poll on Obama vs. A repuplican candidate in 2012? Obama by 10%. I too thought the Alvarez recall was a good sign but know I just don’t know.

    These guys wouldn’t know what to do with their jewels if they did find them. Sorry!

    • Bob Mack says:

      Jim, I hope the Pew result is because the public always supports a president at the start of a military action–even the Dems, though their support usually only lasts about 15 minutes.

    • AFVET says:

      The only true poll is the one at the voting booth.
      These ‘polls’ can be so skewed and then disseminated across a corrupt media.
      The drones lap it up and then say “see, Obama is the best president ever”, and then they go back to watching american idol, or some such mishmash that is condemning the intellectualism and the future ability to logically discern who should be in control of this Country.

      Conservatives on fire, your last statement is correct.
      It is our job to help them find their jewels, if not, we will place them in the unemployment line.
