Mississippi Mud

Heads I Win Tails You Lose

“In light of last night’s election results in Mississippi, there is one question every conservative should be asking: How much longer can a party survive when its leadership is inexorably against the ethos of its base?” —  Daniel Horowitz

“The GOP respects no truth, has no honor, is without any principle or standard of decency.”Rob Cunningham

“The Republicans have become the party of lobbyists, most of whom were on twitter celebrating their purchase.” Erick Erickson

“Republicans and democrats, democrats and republicans, what’s the difference? Neither represent the American people or give one big crap about defending individual rights or the Constitution.” M.D. Creekmore

“I am hurt.  A plague a’ both your houses!” — William Shakespeare, Romeo and Juliet

Old George Wallace used to say that there wasn’t a dime’s worth of difference between Republicans and Democrats.  Of course, these days, that thin dime’s only worth about two red cents (and I do mean red); and, if you’re one of the “extremists” who believes that our elected officials should actually honor their oaths of office, you won’t even get to put yours in.  At least, not if that passel of D.C. porkers known collectively as the Republican Establishment has anything to say about it:

[…] the establishment treachery on the campaign trail in Mississippi is merely a reflection of what they do in Washington … Throughout the primary season, GOP elites have accused the conservative base of helping Democrats by challenging Republicans in primaries. The reality is that we are challenging these people precisely because they work in tandem with Democrats and empower them in growing government. (This Is Treachery)

When you’re waylaid by highwaymen, does it really matter that one of them offers to beat you over the head with a smaller stick?

    Malcolm X had the same things to say regards dems and repubs, but made a special exception for dems in that he understood the dems were the racists and disliked them a bit more for always claiming the opposite. I share that view. I don’t have any use for repubs, but I hate democrats.

    I understand why the repubs are going after the loser class. They see the future just like some of us. But its interesting if they think they can out loser the democrats. I think they’re a non-party now. Just a matter of time.

    I fear this will continue until we are allowed to publicly execute bastards who break their solemn oaths. Just for giggles, we could start with John (Mental Midget) McCain.

    Horowitz is SO right…I often wonder why even Republicans slam the Tea Party. I think they’ve bought into the media naysayers when, really, the Tea Party does have the values most conservatives want this country to continue. STRANGE

    The concept of an organization that upholds and respects the principles of the Constitution terrifies the entrenched dinosaurs embedded in the congress.
    The knowledge that the Tea Party promotes is a huge threat to those that rely on the ignorance of their constituents to get re-elected.
    It is no wonder that they are spending millions of dollars to defeat the candidates that are determined to rock the ship in Washington.

    The results in Mississippi are suspect, and should be investigated.
    We need to be informed of the tactics to throw elections before the 2014 mid-term elections to at least be aware of the illegal efforts being made to thwart Conservative candidates from winning.

    Great Post Bob.
