Y’know, Denizens, I had been wanting to associate myself with the Tea Party. I mean, what’s not to like? We both think we’re overtaxed, we both want government to return to conservative, Constitutional principles, we both want a conservative in the White House…right?
Wellllllll, not so fast there, Sparky. Looks like the Tea Party – at least, the organized one – has jumped the shark.
After last Thursday’s debate, in which both Herman Cain and Newt Gingrich outshone both of the purported frontrunners, the question of whether primary Republican voters will choose their nominee according to conventional wisdom as to what makes a candidate electable or according to personal preferences and conservative principles has been (somewhat) reopened.
Well, I don’t know about Cain. I think that was a case of Big Dickhead Perry shooting himself in the foot, combined with the fact that Mittens isn’t going to get elected dogcatcher in FLA.
But Ms. Korbe, if you think Newt Gingrich can outshine a black hole, I’ve a bridge I wanna sell you.
Anyway, continuing on…
But Cain’s surprise upset in the Florida straw poll this weekend was a forcible reminder that Perry and Romney aren’t technically alone in the race — and that Republicans are willing to reassert preference and principle in symbolic ways, at least. In that vein, Tea Party Nation founder Judson Phillips recently endorsed eloquent debater Newt Gingrich.
That would be the Gingrinch that sat on the couch with San Fran Nan Pig-lousi. That would be the Gingrinch that sided with Bambi on Bambicare. That would be the Gingrinch that called us “right-wing social engineers”. And he included you in that, Juddy baby.
And that’s who you want to see as President.
G’night, Tea Party. Be sure to run over a few cacti in your slide to oblivion, hm?
