The strange thing about the Republican Party’s supporters is their complete lack of party loyalty. Even when their guys were in charge, I don’t recall the Democrat voters whining about not getting everything they want and our guys aren’t listening to us and see if I ever vote for these f__kers again. Hell, no – party loyalty above everything, because they knew the principle behind it, and apparently we on the other side forgot.
Your party won’t give you everything you want, but it’s a million times better than having the other bloc in power and getting absolutely nothing. That’s why the Democrats maintain a foothold, despite being made up of so many different factions, constantly arguing over what they want – they know that they have to vote for their guy, when it comes down to the wire, or they’re screwed.
Meanwhile, the Republicans have no one to argue with but their representatives. The GOP base are glad to get rid of everyone who doesn’t toe the line they’ve drawn – or at least that’s the theory.
But here, again, is my point: By turning against someone who won’t give you everything you want, you run the risk of replacing him or her with someone who will give you absolutely NOTHING. In which case, you’d better have a LOT of patience and feel VERY secure about what might happen to you between this election day and the next.

Between 1966 and 1972, the Democratic party and their aligned lefty cohorts threw The Temper Tantrum That Lost The Vietnam War.
In another fifty years, long after this whole North Korea – Mark Foley – immigration thing has blown over (in which direction, I can’t predict), do you fuckers want to be remembered for throwing The Temper Tantrum That Lost The War On Terror?
It depresses me to know that there are people out there who are stupid enough to believe that we can just throw away a Republican majority and, in this political climate, win it back in another 2 or 4 or 6 years once the GOP has learned its lesson. The Democrats and their allied lefty cohorts will all but kill to make sure that once they win their long-awaited power back, they will never never NEVER have to return it to us – and I remind you that they own the mainstream media. If you’re dumb enough to vote for the Democrats this year, just to teach Washington a lesson, you’ll be wasting your time and your vote. It is a lesson that Washington will never learn, and you will only be calling down upon yourself the burden of another 40 years of mismanagement, incompetence, and appeasement of our enemies.
If this country runs itself into the dirt because you were too indignant about your party to care about your future, you had goddamned well better be willing to accept the responsibility, because you WILL be getting the blame.

There is nothing more infuriating than someone who does not comprehend the concept of sarcasm. They fall into two types:
1. The easily offended jerk who hears a sarcastic statement, takes it seriously, and explodes in righteous indignation at the outrageous thing you’ve just said.
2. The brainless shitheel who hears a sarcastic statement, takes it seriously, and agrees enthusiastically with the outrageous thing you’ve just said, inadvertently revealing the particularly perverse cast of his mind.

Recently surfed over to Neo Neocon for her interview with Washington State pol Steve Beren. A former anti-war activist turned Republican office seeker. He has some interesting things to say on the rhetoric of war protesters.
What Steve Beren is saying about antiwar strategy can be put this way: If we had made a different choice in 2003 and invaded North Korea, the Bush Administration’s opponents would have spent the last three years bitching about why Bush wasn’t doing anything about the obvious problems in Iraq.
It doesn’t matter which battle your political adversary chooses to fight, as long as you consistently maintain the position that he picked the wrong battle. And if he decides to fight in more than one place, if he in fact chooses to fight ALL of the battles you say he should fight, you can always call him stupid for overextending himself.
