Keep farking that chicken, Republitards!

Hahaha, you idiots can't even manage to rein in the Club for Growth. Yeah, they're really a minority of the party, not in control in the least.

This is amazing: they see the problem, they can easily diagnose the cure, but instead they decide to double down and see what happens.

Keep it up, cons. You'll make that chicken like it eventually.

watching the Republicans eat themselves from within is going to be a full time occupation between now and 2014 when I really hope the Democrats drive a stake thru the heart of the party of old angry white guys by taking control of the Senate again.

Another stake thru the heart again when President Hillary Clinton takes the oath in 2016 should just about put that party in the grave.

But of course, vampires can raise from the dead again.

The ones doing the "shooting" are the RINOs. They are NeoCons, GOPers, Teahadists, and other assorted right-wing lunatics. There haven't been any actual Republicans in charge of the party since before Reagan. Nixon, God help us all, was that last Republican president.

Keep shrinking that Big Tent. It will have absolutely no adverse side effects.

On possible successor parties, that is...

As a Conservative who left the party, pretty much. Conservative used to mean a considered approach, and now it is code for "pants on head retarded radical who hates his neighbors almost as much as he hates a real free market"...

"Congresswoman Capito has a long record of support of bailouts, pork, and bigger government," Club For Growth president Chris Chocola wrote in a press release. "She voted to bail out Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, for massive expansions of government-run health insurance, giveaways to big labor, and repeatedly voted to continue funding for wasteful earmarks like an Exploratorium in San Francisco and an Aquarium in South Carolina. That's not the formula for GOP success in U.S. Senate races."

Yeah! You have to talk about rape a lot more. Suggest that it's a blessing from god, perhaps.

I suspect their problem is that they don't view them as mistakes. The only mistake possible is not being conservative enough.

The analogy of Frankenstein's Monster is truly prophetic in this case.

The beast that they created to challenge the Dems has turned on its master and is destroy things left and right.

I honestly thought that the lulz would end with Obama's re-election, but this...It just keeps on giving.

that said, it's fascinating to watch the modern day GOP implode. the Democrats don't have to do anything all here - just step aside and worry about their own shiat and the Republicans will destroy themselves for 'em. no muss, no fuss.

The Club for Growth is actually a liberal ecological organization. This is a little-known fact, but that's reason the subject of the name is "Growth" and not "Leadership" or "Conservatism" (or "Tax", like Papa Norquist's).

They run specialized nurseries, raising plants that will thrive in a chosen environment - careful breeding, the right nutrients during its sprouting, a and thorough examination of the environment where the briar patch is to be permanently located.

There was a reason for that.

But yes, you are right. And it explains why they are still lugging around all that cold-war rhetoric.

Keep tacking right, idiots, because clearly the reason you lost is that you weren't anti-everything enough the last time.

Ehh, I give it a couple of years until they start purging the TPers from the party. The pro-business side of the GOP has too strong a sense of self-preservation to let the crazies completely destroy the party, and they control the purse-strings. I figure they'll stop giving any aid at all to congress critters who don't toe the line.

The issue is that there's still enough 'center' GOPers who are still trying to maintain the coalition. The Social conservatives think that they're the majority and won't stop trying to eliminate the non-social conservatives. Once they've alienated enough of the 'center' GOP, then you'll see a Republican version of the Night of Long Knives.

the evangelicals have a ton of money too though, don't forget. And they take their social agenda VERY seriously. in the end, it might come down to a three way slap fight between the 1. tea party fanatics, 2. the pro-business types and 3. the evangelicals. if/when that happens, neither group can back down, none of them could stand to let the GOP go, they'd rather destroy the party than see it in the hands of 'weak fools who corrupt the noble Republican name'.

March on, proud Teabaggers. Charge forward like the great Gen. Custer. Show those moderate, compromise-loving traitors what for. Don't stop attacking RINOs until the Republican Party IS the Tea Party, and then enjoy your noble exile from mainstream politics.

that right there is a key point. the evangelicals really do believe that THEY are the majority and that THEY are always right. they're not gonna just take their ball and go home. they've grabbed hold of the GOP and they ain't letting go.

It's certainly amusing that there are so many right wingers out there that actually think if you go harder right, the shrinking old white conservative male vote will be large enough to beat the growing number of, well, every other voting demographic (all of which are against them). They're not seeding for the future, they're digging deeper into their stores for food. And it keeps shrinking.

It's obvious why the teabaggers never actually learn a lesson: They're anti-education. Any kind of learnin' is un-American.

I always figured the message of the Club for Growth purposefully conflated pro-business themes with erectile dysfunction concerns. Yes, you too can become firmly upthrustingly erect if you buy their snake oil, and what America needs is big dicks in charge of it.

Exactly that. It's going to take another cycle of the GOP throwing races to try and discourage the Social conservatives into listening again.

not sure if that'll work or not, but the only alternative for them is to straight out openly 'take' control back and start an open 'civil war' in the GOP.

I don't know where you guys are getting the idea that the GOP is going to take a bath in the 2014 congressional races. Midterm elections generally go against the president's party, and I kind of doubt the massive Democratic GOTV machine will be as active this time around.

I mean, it certainly could happen, and I totally agree that in the long term the Republicans are headed for demographic oblivion if they don't make some significant changes, but depending on how the next 2 years go, the 2014 election could be really bad.

/ Also, as much as I like Elizabeth Warren, I don't think she'd be a good presidential candidate in 2016

What makes you think the GOTV machine is going to turn off now? Also, the GOP underestimated 'this' year's GOTV effort from the Dems.

Would you make the same mistake?
