Welcome to the Realm™ - Version 5.0...

For those that haven’t turned on the TV or haven’t looked at the news websites (which around here means exactly no one since Darth and I are aware of how up-to-date all 3 of you are on current events)….Hitlary was confirmed as Slutkitary of State-less earlier today by a 94-2 vote. After reading this article though, it seems there are still some unanswered questions.

While there is some slightly minor redeeming value that Cornyn was holding up the proceedings…..he was NOT one of the two to vote against the confirmation. That was left to Republican senators Jim DeMint of SC and David Vitter of LA, as confirmed by RollCall in this article……my question is — who were the senators that abstained or were not present to vote (aside from Herr Chappaquiddick)?

Another thing that the RollCall article mentioned, and that I found VERY interesting was this:

In a strongly worded floor speech, Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), the 2008 GOP presidential nominee, demanded support for Clinton’s installment. Soon after his remarks, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) said he “enthusiastically” supported her.


Rush nailed it pretty well when he said this on today’s show:

… But I have learned from this, I have learned from the past 24 hours, Mr. Snerdley, I understand what it’s all about now. I am the Last Man Standing, ladies and gentlemen, with all of you, too, but I’m talking about it in terms of national figure. There’s nobody in the Republican Party, there is no elected Republican Party leadership. I’m it. I am the one resisting the tug of popular sentiment. The whole country — well, not the whole country, but a good portion of the whole country has checked their brains at the door. They have just gotten caught up in this wave of popular sentiment. Newt Gingrich is caught up in it, Tom Coburn is caught up in it, the entire Republican Party, except maybe John Cornyn and Jeff Sessions, are caught up in it. Kay Bailey Hutchison running for Texas in 2010, she’s not caught up in it, but most of the conservative media totally caught up in the tug of popular sentiment.

Okay, so there’s gonna be some argument about that last part…..but for the most part he’s right.

Hope y’all are stockpiling (or have been for some time now), cause it’s gonna get ugly fast folks.

    “In a strongly worded floor speech, Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), the 2008 GOP presidential nominee, demanded support for Clinton’s installment. Soon after his remarks, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) said he “enthusiastically” supported her.”

    Now you know why I refused to vote for McCain.

    Nothing surprising here. Move along, please.

    The reason I never became a Republican, after my misspent youth as a Communist, is that the Republican party is NOT, nor has it ever been, the party of, by, and for conservatives. I’ve done a thought exercise with several of my Republican friends that goes like this: Name the last three Republican candidates for President, on the national ballot, not primary ballot, who were at least as conservative as Ronald Reagan (who was not all *that* conservative, when you get right down to it. Yes, he was a conservative, and a might fine conservative thinker, at that. But, he wasn’t the Right Wing Deathbeast he’s been made out to be, either.) The question spots the questioned one answer (obviously, Ronald Reagan was at least as conservative as Ronald Reagan). So, name two more. It sickens me, and most of my Republican friends, how far back you have to go to get to the SECOND Republican candidate. I’ve managed to think of three…and the third was around ONE HUNDRED YEARS AGO! That’s 25 presidential elections, or so, and there have only been THREE who were at least as conservative as Ronald Reagan?!

    Rush (long may he air!) has been operating under the delusion that the ‘old guard’ Republicans have been launching a rebellion in the party, to take control away from the conservatives. It’s the other way around. The Reagan Revolution was an attempt by conservatives to wrest control of the party away from the liberal-lites. We can now say the revolution failed. The Rockefeller Republicans never really lost control. They lost a battle or two in the fight, but, once they regrouped, they won the war.

    Lindsay Grahamnesty, John McCain, Kay Bailey Hutchison…they’re not RINOs. All of you conservative Republicans are.

    Until, and unless, the Republican Party suddenly becomes a conservative party, they’ll not get my vote. Ever. If I ‘throw away’ my vote on a third party candidate, at least I’ll be able to look myself in the mirror and say “At least I did my part. What others do is not my concern.”
