blank'/> Liberally Lean From The Land Of Dairy Queen: Super Tuesday

2.05.2008

Super Tuesday

Not that I study politics for a living, but I have never seen such an orchestrated attack on any person as the Far Right is doing to probable GOP nominee John McCain.

If you listen to WBAP, it has been two weeks of verbal scud missiles launched right at him. From Mark Davis to Rush Limbaugh to Sean Hannity to that annoying Levine guy at night, they absolutely hate McCain. And they are doing everything in their power to see Romney get the nomination. Good times.

Edit: And, uh, Texas didn't hold its primary today.

Endorsed by the New York Times. What's that tell you?

Who cares - no one but the disgruntled right wing Christian-types gives two shits about what people like Hannity and Limbaugh say. These guys are probably doing McCain a favor with these attacks.

I think its going to be the best of the worst for each party. Not a good candidate on either side. JMO

M&M said...

Because if he is the nominee, from a conservative viewpoint, the election in November will be between two Democrats, even though he has an R after his name. He is considered a liberal Republican, but there's no difference between that and being a conservative Democrat. I think some throw in the word 'moderate'. It's still more right than the socialist ideas of Clinton & Obama.

Barry why waste time listening to that crap when you could be obsessing over Brittney or Paris?

goober said...

Hey M&M, I hope before you meet your demise that you get to experience some of the same factors that created the "socialist" attitudes that the Democratic party stands for. You'll be found walking the streets w/o any shoe leather BEGGING the gov't. to do something to feed your sorry hide and your children's. You and other so called "Patriotic Republican Americans" deserve a DJA of 4-5000.

Hillary has more inexperience to offer than Obama.

On any day, any Republican candidate can beat either of them. If it's McCain ... not the best our country could do.

Listened for a moment (gag) to Limbaugh today and the Republican bashing of McCain is really interesting.

I am not a McCain fan either, but what's wrong with a candidate who is willing to work with both sides?

It galls a righteous Republican to the core.

3:58, The problem with McCain is he only wants to work with liberal weenies and not hold true to Conservative principles. He was against the Bush tax cuts, worked with one of the biggest liberal losers in trying to ram amnesty down our throats(McCain-Kennedy), chipped away free speech with another liberal(McCain-Feingold). Do you need more?

Jarhead said...

He's a R.I.N.O.

A Republican In Name Only.

I'll abstain if he's the Republican choice. Democrats can view it as a victory if McCain is chosen as the Republican nominee because either way they're getting a lib in the White House.

I gotta tell you, though, if McCain wins, we'll have the hottest First Lady ever! Anything's better than Clintoon as "First Lady." Ugh.

Gorilla,

You hit the nail on the head! "no one but the disgruntled right wing Christian-types gives two shits about what people like Hannity and Limbaugh say."

Of course, that's only 80% of the United States you're talking about.

Why should we compromise our beliefs for anyone? Isn't that what's wrong with our leadership to begin with?

Other than being "pro-life" McCain has been pretty middle of the road. Against taxes but for balancing the budget (can be hard to do). He's for the current war, says we may stay in Iraq for 100 years and threatens additional wars for various reasons.

McCain is 71 and has many physical limitations (he can't even comb his own hair). So his vice presidential choice may be very important. It appears that choice will be the preacher/governor Huckabee.

I don't understand why the conservative lemmings are so out to get him. Something you learn in your basic poli-sci classes is that folks who are to far to the left or right don't stand a chance getting elected. There is a narrow window on the Conservative/Liberal scale in which a person can be elected to the office of President. I think McCain is the only Republican that could pull enough Democratic votes to be elected.

M&M said...

Hey Goober, Most of those folks are in such condition because they either choose to or because of dumb decisions they made. Why should the government bail them out? That older guy in the white shirt & tie that's always down on 51 doesn't want a job as his sign says, he admittedly makes more money by people giving him handouts than he would in a job.

Like I rely on Rush to make my mind up for me - FREAKING NOT!!! Yes, I'm talkin' to you, Wordbile.

4:40 PM - McCain has trouble combing his hair because he was repeatedly hanged with his arms tied behind him from a pole through his elbows. The torture sessions lasted for days and resulted in tearing his shoulder muscles, breaking his collar bones and separating the front of his rib cage. It is not because of his age that he has trouble raising his arms.

5:05, Are you not able to keep up with the conversation? You don't understand why the lemmings are so out to get him? Try reading all posts then maybe a light will come on for you. I know thought process is hard, but we must all do it.

wordkyle said...

If people who believe the same things say the same things, is it an "orchestrated attack?" If you say 2+2=5 and I correct you, then you go into another room and say 2+2=5 and someone else corrects you, is that "orchestrated?"

McCain co-authored McCain-Feingold, McCain-Lieberman and McCain-Kennedy, three pieces of legislation that I, and many other Conservatives, vehemently disagree with.

The New York Times endorsed McCain based on the fact that he's the closest to a Liberal Democrat the Republican party offers.

no-name 3:58 - A Democrat tried to work with the Republicans and they ran him out of the party. His name was Joe Lieberman.

What everyone seems to consider "bashing" is based on McCain's record. If you can't discuss a politician's record, what do you discuss? For that matter, what can you point to in the record of Hillary Clinton or Barack Obama? nada (Do Democrats support them solely because she's a woman and he's black?)

no-name 5:51 - Please feel free to elaborate on why you believe Rush makes up my mind for me. You apparently have special insight into the matter. Until you do, though, I'll keep reading books. Written by people with names.

goober said...

M&M:
Your so stupid you don't even understand what I'm talking about. I don't know what "51" is or the guy your talking about, but I KNOW neither of you have ever seen a double digit unemployment rate or an administration who lets people go jobless thinking big business and "trickle down" will save the day. And in MY life I have seen both. Good luck when your job goes into thin air, maybe you and your 51 buddy can both hold signs and get enough to survive on.

I love all these conservatives who say they won't vote for McCain over Billary.

Do you really want Lani Guinier on the Court? Are you really going to not vote?

I shouldn't get worked up - it's Obama in a landslide.

I just wish they would quit interviewing the "average voter". The stupidity is nauseating.

RPM said...

Why would anyone of sound mind listen to WBAP? Oh, that's right...they don't.

Anonymous said...

5:51PM here Wordbile - shiate man, you have a lovefest going on with Rush on your own blog site. To remind yourself, just do a search for Rush on your own site. You could read a lot of books in the time you waste on listening to and documenting his blabbering. Fool.

Anonymous said...

7:34, You're right about the average voter being stupid. That's why McCain and Clinton will be the nominees.

monkey said...

I agree 9:11...Yikes! Most people in the US are either sold out to one party or the other on SINGLE issues; or more concerned with what is going on with Spears or American Idol..blah...blah,blah,blah...blah,blah..

wordkyle said...

no-name 5:21 and 8:26 - In three years of blogging, I have half a dozen references to Rush Limbaugh, half of them dealing with the letter Harry Reid and Senate Democrats (including presidential hopefuls Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama) wrote to the head of Clear Channel trying to get him off the air.

On the other hand I have 20 references to Al Gore, 8 references to Hillary Clinton, 6 on Newt Gingrich, along with 14 on "scientists," one on Peyton Manning and one on Uri Geller. I seem to spread the love around quite a bit.

I feel so cheap. Sort of like Bill Clinton (6 mentions.)

Great research. You ought to turn that laser-like intellect on the records of Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, and John McCain.

monkey said...

YOU GO WORDKYLE!!!! 5:21, 8:26...Did you feel that? I felt it...did you feel it?

gern blansten said...

hey 5:51 and 8:26:

YOU JUST GOT B---- SLAPPED by Wordkyle. You probably think you're cute with your little weenie posts, but you got it slapped right back in your face. He didn't even resort to calling you names like all you can and your little liberal anon friends can do, either, huh?
LOL @ YOU!!

Anonymous said...

4:40 - interesting points. I think McCain is too old too and should he be the Republican nominee and chose Huckabee, oh lord, we'd have Benny Hinn, James Robison, Kenneth Copeland, etc. etc. etc. as advisors.

Sweet hallelujah!

Good or bad,right or wrong,that old man will be your next president.Might as well start getting your mind wrapped around that now.

Jarhead, something is really wrong with you if you think John McCain's wife is hot!

However, sometimes she shows too much cleveage with her push up bra. Her hair last night was styled for a state dinner or some kind of ball or coronation of the King and Queen.

She is in need of a makeover and needs to talk to Laura.

Sorry, Jarhead, Mrs. McCain is not a hot moma! She needs some curves and not look anorexic.

And it would be so much more fun to have Bill in the role!

Or Mike Huckabee's wife (who sounds like Roseanne Barr) would be refreshing.

Anonymous said...

Rush is playing games to make Democrats cross over to vote for McCain instead of Hillary or Obama. He can't like the flip-flopping arrogant Romney!

Mccain will be the nominee and I think Huckabee will be his running mate.

Look for an anointing of oil if the team wins!

Since McCain is so old, Huckabee will be in line for 2012. So don't be counting on any miracle cures from stem cell research. Fundamentalism in government will not be going away. Huckabee will be taking Dick Cheney's place.

rex the wonder dog said...

Now we have it. McCain wins an underwhelming victory over Romney. The battle between Hillary and Barack goes on to see which one has the most inexperience to offer our country.

GUARDED RUMOR - Hillary will pick Bill as a running mate. If she wins, she will resign immediately after taking the oath. Bill becomes president and makes Hillary VP and Condoleza Rice an intern. All constitutional and legal. USA gets a real two-fer.

(wondering)

HOPEFULLY, John McCain winning the REPUBLICAN nomination will be the BEGINNING of the END of the RAGING RIGHT WING RELIGICANS' aka Conservatives' 30 year hijacking of the REPUBLICAN Party. Perhaps, the LOONY LEFTIST LIBERALS will SOON lose their DEATH grip on the DEMOCRAT Party and both parties can return to representing the MAJORITY of Americans rather than the loudest members of the WACKO FRINGE.

PERHAPS, Conservatives should start their own party and let the REPUBLICAN Party be what the REPUBLICAN Party had ALWAYS been PRIOR to the Religican golden boy, Ronald Reagan.

Incidentally, how many people are itching to see how that horse faced, soul sapping harpy, Ann Coulter slithers out of her declaration on Hannity and Colmes of campaigning for Hillary Clinton should McCain get the nomination. FINALLY, irrefutable evidence Coulter is little more than a bitter, babbling bimbo. You have to love the alliteration *;)

To VOTE FOR McCain and EVERY moderate Republican candidate is the BEST advice I can offer to ANYONE who wants to wrestle control of the REPUBLICAN Party from the feeble hands and minds of Raging Right Wing Religican Conservatives.

Holy hell Mzchief, my head hurts after reading that highly puncuated dissertation. I might agree with you. Give a couple of hours to digest it. Whew.

Chex the Dunder Dog said...

Why is anyone dundering about the election anyway. The Republicans have become Masters at "Election Rigging" and "Voter Intimidation." An example in 2000 election to bus in recount "agitators" to make sure the process is shut down and the recounters are terrified.

(Just Dundering)

Mzchief - New political thinking might emerge? It would be a relief to see the Jimmy Carter liberals develop some morals and patriotism.

M&M said...

One thing that hasn't been discussed (I don't think)on this blog is this whole primary process. Why is it different in every state? Why isn't the election on a single day nation wide, like the general election?

In Texas, ours will be an open election where registered Dems can vote on the Repub's ticket and vice versa. In some states you can only vote on the ticket you are registered on. Some have caucuses and West Virginia had a convention. How the delegate votes are given out is different from state to state. Winner takes all in some, some it's divided by what districts are won etc. It's pure craziness that it is so different. It seems like it should be more unified in terms of the process and I think it should be all on one day. Just wondering, does anyone else have any answers or opinions?

1:01 - it is very simple - each state sets its own election rules and formats. It is NOT a federal decision. The schedules are set by the states. A big hooker in the whole process is the "super delegates." These special folks get to vote for whomever they please - regardless of how their state voted. Amazing, huh?

mc - Look past your anti-Christian bigotry for a moment, if you can, and tell us what part of the Conservative agenda you disagree with....and what version of the Republican party would you return it to? Nixon's? Eisenhower's? Hoover's?
