Even though most of the “conservative” talking heads are trying to convince us how sexy these lipsticked pigs McCain (RINO, Screwedus), Romney (RINO, Lastpoll) and Huckabee (RINO, Heaven) look, I’m still voting for Fred. If he drops out of the race, I’ll write him in for my vote. Yes, I know Fred has no chance of winning as a write-in candidate. Yes, I know if any significant numbers of conservative voters do likewise, the Republican nominee has no chance of winning – and that’s my whole point. My hope is that a sufficient number of write-in votes for Fred will force the Stupid Party to recognize that independent conservatives will no longer vote for liberal Republicans just to save us from liberal Democrats. That ship has sailed. Voters interested in a liberal will vote for a Democrat, not a squishy RINO. We conservatives must therefore vote with our feet.
Perhaps had you Republicans thought about giving your natural base a candidate they could vote for a little sooner, your party wouldn’t be imploding. But go ahead: you geniuses keep right on pandering to the mushy middle, the unprincipled, the undecided. Keep right on ignoring the folks who brought your party back from near extinction in the post-Nixon years. Make sure your candidates don’t try to run a campaign outside the parameters set by your sworn enemies, the media. Use Fred as your object lesson of what happens to candidates who don’t bow at the progressives’ media altar, and play by the other side’s rules. Show your ever-dwindling supporters how good little bitches let the other guy set the agenda and frame the issues. And whatever you do, don’t vary the lockstep march down the Iwannabea Dem trail lest the lemmings see the cliff you’re leading them over before you reach it.
You’ve learned nothing at all from Reagan or the Contract with America. You’ve been cheek-and-jowl with the Democrats at the taxpayer’s feeding trough for so long now that not only do you look and sound just like them, you want to be them. To paraphrase a great American, I didn’t leave the Republican party, the Republican party left me.
And so you bloody fools are going to suffer a historic defeat: worse than Bob Dole’s embarassment, maybe even worse than Mondale’s disgrace. Congratulations, you’ve certainly earned it. Unfortunately, it’s the nation that will pay.
Update! Mourning in America begins.
