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.
