The original plan was to make today an open thread because yours truly was getting pretty tired of all the crap. It is so rare that there is anything for us to truly feel good about I couldn’t pass the opportunity up. The full effect of what happened last night has not been fully manifested yet. I feel a pretty good rant coming on,so grab a refreshment and get comfortable.
For the last six long,agonizing years we have been forced to stand by helplessly while a deranged Kenyan dickweed has run roughshod over the legislative and judicial branches of the government. We keep waiting,in vain,for the republican party to show some political courage and stand up to him. They stand there with their thumbs hooked in their vest pockets and huff that they’ll have to pass a resolution if he keeps breaking the law. Then they turn around and tell the base “we will destroy you!”
They had a suspicion that the base wasn’t happy but they figured we were as ignorant and unprincipled as those on the liberal plantation. We’d still vote for whoever the party put up. Guess again. They don’t understand if it takes years to establish a party loyal to our founding principles then so be it.
Megyn Kelly and Sean Hannity were,as expected,all over this last night. Among other guests,Megyn had Carl Cameron and Brit Hume. I like both of them,but they seem to have spent too long in DC. Cameron posits that Brat won because it was raining yesterday. Fox News Channel’s Washington-based chief political correspondent Carl Cameron blamed the rain for Eric Cantor’s loss to Dave Brat.
“It’s worth noting that the weather was foul here yesterday and today as well. So some of it may have been nature helping out David Brat.”
What he didn’t appreciate was that this was what I call a “broken glass” election. That’s one where you would crawl on your hands and knees over broken glass to get to the voting booth.
Brit Hume insisted that without ‘immigration reform’ to tout that the republicans have no chance of winning the White House in 2016. He is loathe to call it amnesty but that is precisely what it is. The so-called “pathway to citizenship” is as phony as Obama’s birth certificate. These illegals have no desire to become citizens. They want the jobs,the free housing,medical,food stamps and welfare. If Brit ever sojourned near a Latin neighborhood he’d see the sign in every storefront window announcing wire service to Mexico.
The FOX News hosts are fuming over Dave Bratt’s upset tonight over House Majority Leader Eric Cantor. Brit Hume led the charge tonight:
“The margin is amazing… The conventional wisdom on this Megyn is already begun to form. It goes this way. That this is bad news long term for the Republicans and great news for Democrats. It is argued by some that immigration reform now will never pass with Republicans who were very much chastened by what happened to Eric Cantor.”
The left had to chirp about Linda Grahamnesty winning his primary last night and bragged about he won because he supports amnesty. Truth is,he ran against 6 candidates. The Tea Party in South Carolina is very territorial and the four could not agree on one candidate to endorse so they split the vote. Grahamnesty also actively solicited democrats to cross over and vote for him. About 20% of his total was from democrat switchovers who will now switch back. Truth is, Linda is just damn lucky. In 2010 the dems ran a convicted drug dealer against him and now he managed to avoid a runoff thanks to democrat shenanigans.
However,there was another primary in the Palmetto State yesterday. Tim Scott… you know,the one the NAALCP accused of being a puppet with the racist white slavemasters pulling his strings? Yeah,that one. He got 90% of the vote in his primary. He garnered more than 60,000 more votes than McCain’s butt boy.
BEEN WAITING TO USE THIS ONE:
The thing that terrifies me now is what will happen between November and January. If the democrats do,indeed,lose their majority in the Senate expect them to try to shove some parting gifts through before they go to work as lobbyists. This is what happened here in Illinois. On the very last day of the lame duck the dems passed a 67% income tax increase. They got no republican votes. The single vote it passed by was bought from an outgoing dem who got a cushy advisory job making mid-six figures to do basically nothing. That’s how they do it here in the land of the undead voter.
