McConnell Exits Stage Right...

When he says this:
"We're all concerned about the fact that the very wealthy and the very poor, the most and least educated, and a majority of minority voters, seem to have more or less stopped paying attention to us. And we should be concerned that, as a result of all this, the Republican Party seems to be slipping into a position of being more of a regional party than a national one," McConnell told the gathering.
And this is part of why you are not only a regional party, now, but your regional party is in serious jeopardy of becoming the 3rd party in this two party country. A country that no longer needs nor wants neoconservatives, far right wing authoritarians, obstructionists, childish name calling mud slingers, warmongers, haters, the criminals and the corrupt. We are done with all of the epic failures and political theatrics that the GOP brings to the political stage.

The problem is not that people stopped listening to you.

It is that they started listening to what you say and comparing it to what you do. And it is because they started looking at those actions and matched them up to the actual results that they are living through right now.

The real problem with your party is that people actually started paying attention. And it will continue to be the problem with the GOP as long as the the GOP continues to do what they have already done before. And, so far, they are.

Take a bow Mitch McConnell...

This could very well be the GOP's final curtain call on the national stage. And you, Mitch McConnell, had a grand part in it all...

[update] The Existentialist Cowboy gives a great rundown of some of the many reasons for the GOP's problems. But, as you can see, the GOP just does not get it..

Is Tom Daschle a tax cheat?

Owing a hundred thousand dollars in back taxes seems a bit too much. What is it with these democrats? They don't have any problem raising taxes on the rest of us. When it comes their turn to pay, they are looking for a pass. This really is shameful.

Thank you Brother, for linking to my tribute to Julian Brennan, not so much for me, as for the ultimate sacrifice made by this young warrior. I wish there were some way we could pay tribute to all who have fallen in the service of our country.

Honor the Warrior, not the War.

PS: You are being blogrolled at my place and the website of the American Patriot Institute.

Semper Fi.

Intellectual Redneck. I have absolutely no tolerance for corruption on either side of the aisle. But that is because I am unaffiliated. But the shoe thrower? The point has already been made in an editorial that no American Journalist had the guts to write. That will probably the symbol of Bush failure in the history books, statue or no.

Thanks for the comments from all of you, and Deudersun, I think you Blogrolled me a long while ago? :) I didn't know I was on the Patriot Institute one? I will have to check if they are on mine?
