For those of us who are politically informed, and therefore Republican.

"I feel liberated"

Rush Limbaugh:
'I feel liberated... I no longer have to carry the water for people who don't deserve it'...
It's like being a lawyer with a bad client. Except the client is the Republican Party, which had become unmoored from its conservative principles. As its advocate, it's hard to make a compelling case for Republicans staying in power when they've done nothing to offer a reason to get re-eleced other than the fact that the Democrats could be worse.

Which is true. But when that's all you've got to work with, it's hard to conclude anything other than that Republicans got a good old fashioned drubbing -- which they earned.

The defeat was a setback, but it is also good not only for our party but more importantly for our ideas and ideals. We lost the "battle of ideas" because the Republican Party showed up without any ammo, namely, ideas. New leadership must emerge, leadership that understands our principles, can articulate them, and will not abandon them. A long overdue conservative reckoning must now begin.

So that would make him a... liar then? A liar and a fraud. With no intellectual integrity whatsoever.

It's beyond me why anyones cares what this shameless Republican concubine has to say about anything.

I think you're misinterpreting what he said. I for one believe that even a bad Republican party that's drunkenly ambling towards the goal I want is better than a Democratic party that's competently navigating away from it, but that's not enough to sway the rest of the electorate. It's not that there was lying going on or anything like that. It's that he wanted Republicans to win, but they gave so little good to promote in their name, which makes it no wonder they lost.

Or to put it another way, it was almost like they were trying to lose.

So he was for the Republicans before he was against them?

EARNEST EAGLE's DAILY OBSERVATION

Yesterday I told you that there were huge flocks of Buzzards and Vultures headed for Washington D.C. to feast on fresh "Republican Roadkill."

Today there's good news and bad news.

The good news, as reported by the mainstream media, is that our nation's capital is now cleaned up and rid of those pesky Republicans.
Truthfully, we're not too sad to see a few bad apples,Foley,Chaffee, DeWine, and Cunningham on the meat
wagon either.

The bad news is the Buzzards and Vultures have decided to remain in Washington. They say they fit in and blend in so well with the indigenous flock of Lawyers and Lobbyists that they're hardly noticed.

Guess they haven't heard about
MOVE-OVER.org's proposed 28th Amendment.

No, CS, it's the principle of the lesser of two evils. They didn't deserve to win on their own merits but the alternative was so poor that they were the better choice.
