Through numerous observations, I am continually reminded of the Democratic Party’s resistance to self-examination. So it was not surprising to see the liberal media outlets ignoring the obviously anemic future of their own party and pressing their noses against the window of the Republican Party during last night’s mega primary races.
With overzealous determination, liberals were all over Christine O’Donnell’s victory in the Delaware Republican Primary over 40 year GOP veteran Mike Castle. Steeped in controversy and an impetus for debate within the GOP, O’Donnell is a Tea Party candidate, – a “real conservative” so to speak –backed by Sarah Palin. Worthy of eliciting overload in any Republican demise lover’s salivary glands, O’Donnell’s win was comprehensible to liberals as a serious rupture in the GOP. You should have seen how many anti-Republican sites ran this clip of Karl Rove and Sean Hannity debating the O’Donnell win.
(Afrocity with a whip and lion tamer’s chair) Down, jackasses, down… But yo know, in this case who could blame the Democrats? If my political party sucked and our president was as ineffective as Barack Obama, I would watch someone else on TV too. Currently, I am sure that if you are a Democrat the GOP is more exciting than watching a slow sinking ship full of Obamabots in denial- particularly if you are actually on the ship.
So go ahead Democrats! Enjoy the show liberals, pull up a beanbag and take a load off. Such drama is good for the political thought lovers soul and should teach our liberal audience a few lessons about Republicans. Our history that Democrats and possibly many Republicans have seemed to forgotten.
Lessons that invalidates any stereotypes which demonizes Republicans as religiously fanatical homophobic racists who hate helping the impoverished. When it comes the party diversity, the Democrats claims lie in race, ethnicity, gender or sexual orientation. Republicans on the other hand seek to find an appropriate balance of diversity within levels of conservatism. We are all Americans regardless of our underlying identities. We are not colors or sexual preferences.
Liberals wrongly view conservatives as a monolith.
We all must sleep with Bibles under our pillows and when the linen cases come off, they double as headgear for our KKK meetings. Not so. The logic of this meme is not intuitive or apparent except that it serves as a tool for the left to marginalize conservatives much like they marginalize identity groups within their own party. You are black therefore you must need us. While looking at the video above, I laughed at some of the comments from liberals such as this one:
“If teabaggers are so pro-minority, why aren’t they going into the inner-cities and making a push to register minority voters? Short answer, they’re scared to death of minority voters and are doing all they can to re-energize white, christian, conservative voters. If a couple minority voters (who may or not be plants) happen to wonder into their camp, of course they’ll welcome them, as long as they don’t move in next door or marry their daughters.“
Now who is the cloistered racist one? My father resides in Chicago’s “inner-city” ummm, somehow he managed to register himself to vote like many “minorities” without the help of ACORN. But here again is prevailing liberal thought that Republicans are all anti-minority. We are all for the rich, sheltered in our timeshares and far, far, far right with no middle class. The liberal media perpetuates such myths and President Obama loves to demonstrate that “B” is for bashing and blaming and Boehner:
Ah, class warfare… the staple diet of liberals. But this is all changing as things heats up in the countdown to November. The Republican Party is struggling to get the right brew and has been on a serious liquid detox diet.
Now everyone hates to diets especially detox diets. I am on one myself. No sugar, no salt…green tea, soy milk, flax seed, omega 3, – all stuff that is good for me….and I hate it but I have to do what’s best for my body and not my taste buds. The Republican Party is going through the same thing — a change for the better.
Why do we diet? because we want to see our old, younger selves again whether we were skinnier, or more active, more mentally alert. The Republican Party had become weighted down with junk in it’s collective truck. Time to purge some floaters.
No question, the Delaware primary race was ugly. One could point out occasional traces of sexism against Christine O’Donnell but I would say that this race was not about man against woman. It was about the establishment versus grassroots true conservationism or the politician versus the common man- correction common woman. In addition to campaign bludgeoning which is considered standard fare for any political competition this race harbored a nastier element not normally witnessed in Republican primaries. One candidate was accused of being gay while another‘s finances were trotted out to reveal an IRS tax lien and pending mortgage foreclosure. In defense of O’Donnell, there are a lot of people facing home foreclosure nowadays so perhaps it was not too smart of Mike Castle to expose O’Donnell’s financial situation as a weakness. Nevertheless, it was elephant eat elephant, or should I say elephant eat RINO in Delaware.
Much of the advice from Tea Partiers went unheard by the GOP establishment- especially the RINO virus carriers. Payback is not tea and sympathy…It’s a bitch.

Tea Party Claims Big Win
Upstart Candidate Beats GOP-Backed Congressman in Delaware Senate Primary
By PETER WALLSTEN And NEIL KING JR.
September 15, 2010
Long-shot U.S. Senate candidate Christine O’Donnell of Delaware rode tea-party momentum Tuesday to the most unexpected upset of a tumultuous political year, soundly defeating Republican Party fixture Mike Castle in a bruising primary.
The results showed again that conservative voters, many of them angry at federal spending by both parties and energized by the tea-party movement, have become mobilized even in one of the nation’s most Democratic-leaning states…
The Delaware results were widely viewed as the most meaningful of the day. With all precincts reporting, Ms. O’Donnell had 53.1% of the vote to Mr. Castle’s 46.9%.
Mr. Castle, a sitting congressman, is one of the most liberal Republicans in the House.
So keep on rubber necking Democrats. My cautionary note to you involves the dangers of not keeping your eyes on the road especially when your vision is impaired with campaign politics and your ears are deaf to public opinion. watch where you are going—I think you passed up the town of “victory” about 18 months back.
