End Of Shutdown Prediction.
I wrote the following, (Update to follow) on Erick Erickson’s post yesterday morning, “The Fight Remains About Obamacare” and see nothing today that would change my take on how things are shaping up on the shutdown.

ARE REPUBLICANS/CONSERVATIVES USING THE SHUTDOWN OPPORTUNITY TO MISS YET ANOTHER OPPORTUNITY??
So, I’m on furlough and watching Fox news this morning and I see an ad from “No Labels” featuring Evan Bayh and John Huntsman asking the public to petition the government to end the shutdown. Then, after swallowing the bile that came up at the sight of Huntsman, it suddenly hit me! We’re nearly a full work week into this shutdown. And where is the | Read More »

This site was ruined when the “Cracken” was unleashed to dump popular writers with a PERMANENT ban | Read More »
At What Point Does The Republican Party Invite The Broke Back Duo To Join The Democrat Party Where They Belong?
Seriously, What do we gain for carrying their sorry butts along anyway? According to the Asshat in chief, “What we saw yesterday is going to give ammunition to those who say the rules of the Senate are being abused,” Well Let me ask you, you MORON, if the Attorney General of the United States Of America and the President of the United States believe they | Read More »
What utterly BLOWS my mind is how anyone with basic reasoning skills can come to the conclusion that CONSERVATISM was the reason Romney lost….Can someone….ANYONE please tell me what was the CONSERVATIVE message that Romney articulated and how THAT so called conservative message caused Romney to lose?

Bring Back The “Tax & Spend Liberal” Monicker
It’s been a while since I’ve posted anything but I think it’s time I laid something out that has been gnawing at me for quite a while. I’ll start by asking a question that will sum up my point. Once the party spends the time to develop a brand that perfectly describes the Democrats and get’s that brand imprinted on the American People’s consciousness…Why do | Read More »

The Only Thing More Breathtaking than Newt’s Statements Concerning Ryan’s Budget Was The House GOP’s Response
I mean…talk about an immediate and unrelenting slap down. Which is awesome. Newt was being Newt and doing what Newt does best…flap his gums incessantly while patting himself on the back for how brilliant he himself is until both feet are lodged up to the ankles in his gaping maw! What’s so brilliant and awe inspiring about this however…isn’t the enormity of said gaping maw…or | Read More »

“Scorched Earth Purists” VS “The Stupid Party Elites”
I wrote this in a reply to some in Ericks FP Post today “House Republicans Leaders Want Democrats, Not Conservatives, To Vote For Their Budget”. Even after all this time, there are those who would scold anyone who dares stand on principle of any kind…and I’ve had my fill of the condescending snarkiness of some as exhibited in the Thread in Erick’s Post…below is my | Read More »
