MSNBC host Joe Scarborough is calling on Republicans to push back against talk radio "bullies" like Glenn Beck and Rush Limbaugh by punching them "in the face."

The Tea Party will implode on its own. They don't worry me, anymore. The people have spoken. They can run or roll around with their histrionic b*tch-fits until the end of time for all I care. They're done.

The majority of America rightly thinks of them as retards. They can grift and promote al they want, but they're never going viable. Gadfly, sure, but not a real source of the change they want.

I don't advocate violence here (even for a dipshiat as big as Rush Limbaugh), but what I'm waiting for is the Republican establishment to recognize that his screeching, psychopathic take-no-prisoners form of bombast is highly effective entertainment that helps him pull good ratings numbers, but it's political suicide.
 
Maybe not always in the short run, but refusing to negotiate anything ever never works out in the long run. Sooner or later your constituents will get tired of your ineffectiveness.

some on the "far right" had realized that "our stupidity was not rewarded on election day so, perhaps, we're going to have a more fact-based view of the political scene."


"some" is probably being generous.

And actually I'm not crazy about your larger point either. I think the Tea Party has been more or less relegated to the wilderness by the most recent election. And it appears their reaction is to drive themselves even deeper into the wilderness.

Not hardly. The Teabaggers, with the help of state legislatures rearranging their districts, aren't going anywhere for several more election cycles. They lost some established seats but gained some among Republican districts as well. For example, here in NC several old-guard Democrat seats in the House went to newcomer Republicans thanks to redistricting in 2010. Other moderate Republican seats got primaried into Teabag seats in heavily rural areas, and the Republicans gained seats in the state government as well.

The GOP lost because the anti-intellectuals like Beck and Rush have been empowering the Tea Tards too much and it is beginning to skew the GOP platform into irrelevancy. Rush and Beck care about the $$$ they get, not if the GOP actually succeeds. In fact, the worse the GOP does the better their ratings get because they become the bastions of conservative "truth" for their audience.

They are the right's greatest strength and greatest weakness. They hold too much sway over the base and can easily cause the base to shift support on a GOPer if Beckrush doesn't like them.

In the end, Beckrush will do far more damage to the GOP than anything else.

I don't advocate violence per se either, but we reached the point about five years ago when the use of words, persuasion and intellect ceased having an effect. The only thing these f*cking people will respond to is the back of the hand. You can't fix, and you can't argue with, stupid. If any anti-teabagger candidate had the buts to look his teabagger opponent in the face and say, point blank, "That is the stupidest f*cking thing I've ever heard, and you're clearly a goddamn idiot," I'd donate the federal maximum to their campaign.

Never recall bullies backing down from being bullying by punching them in the face. Not sure how this myth began, but the best you will achieve through this route is passing them off onto another target; generally, bullies target those who cannot fight back. Romney may have taken a target away from himself or simply forced the bullies to have more reason to target him.

I guess, though, the silver lining in this is that this isn't a long term strategy that is going to work. You can't solve problems with this type of denial.

The long-term effect of Republican policies at the state level will also ensure higher level of federal control. For a party that has a bunch of tenthers in it, the GOP sure goes a long way to erode states' rights.
