You gotta give credit to the teabaggers, they have the republicans running scared and capitulating to their demands. Primarying and threats of a primary are playing out as one of the best thing you could do to move an agenda as political org. If liberals were half as politically savvy we'd be a lot better off as a nation.

I dunno, I think we'd probably end up with even more conservative Democratic candidates and not more liberal ones.

Since Freedomworks was created by the Koch Brothers, who are openly buying up government assets in a blatant attempt to turn America into a feudal/fascist society (which is in line with the fundamental tenets of the the Tea Party), I can see why the South Carolina teabaggers don't want anyone 'elected' to public office any more.

I think the lesson here is that a large group of people who work actively, you might say ferociously, to defeat candidates who don't align precisely with their views tend to be dogmatically ideological, and therefore deluded (I could also throw in bitterly resentful and seeking scapegoats), and there are, in the end, two outcomes for these kinds of groups.  Most of the time, they keep refining and constricting the dogma until they derp themselves out of existence or shatter into a multitude of mutually-loathing schisms, or thanks to political chaos and a lot of luck, they get their hands on the levers of power, and when dogmatic ideologues obtain power, things go very, very wrong.  Some canny thug always convinces them that he is their man, all they need to do is put their faith in him and things will be swell.  Napoleon, Lenin and Stalin, Mussolini, Hitler.

That kind of political savvy is not a good thing in my view.  Muddled democracy is ugly, but better.  If there is anything reassuring about the teabaggers, it is that (so far) no Messiah has appeared who can get them all behind him.

(This is the cue for fark moderates to say, "THAT'S EXACTLY WHAT 0BUMMER IS!!11")

I could have gone either way, but I chose to end on "believe in open democratic processes."  Considering their attempts to shut down minority voting over the past decade, I thought that was key.

Everything "liberal", then when we get 5% of it after the watering down process the nation moved a bit back to the left.

You could also have gone with the singular quote "I think that leads to better candidates" and have a picture of Sharon Angle, Christine O Donnell, Todd Akin, Richard Mourdock and so on.

They sure do. And open democratic processes believe in them:

Back Richard Mourdock for Indiana Senate. Defeat Dick Lugar. Says rape is God's will. Gets crushed by a Democrat in general (when Lugar probably would've cruised to re-election.)

Back Joe Miller for Alaska Senate. Defeat Lisa Murkowski in primary. Murkowski decides to be a write-in; beats Miller in general (And gives the Democrat a Woodrow Wilson-like chance to take the seat.)

Back Steve Laffey for Rhode Island Senate. Nearly defeat Lincoln Chafee in primary, but send so much scarelore that he's easily beaten by Sheldon Whitehouse in the general. Chafee then leaves the party and wins the governorship as an independent.

Well, that was a Democratic incumbent, and I was going over a few of the Republican incumbents they primaried (and either failed to oust or let the seat fall to the Democrats).  The only real thing comparable to the Democrats is Kos & Co. backing Ned Lamont over Joe Lieberman in Connecticut (which went like Miller-Murkowski in Alaska).

The saddest thing is watching a rooster so full of steroids that it's insanely aggressive but physically weak from nausea and vertigo. You watch it enter the ring with its knives strapped on, but even as it tries to fly up and slice the other bird, its strength just isn't there and it gets cut to pieces by the healthier cock.

People put so much time and effort into raising and training roosters to fight, but it ends up killing them. It's a sickening sport.

And don't forget their appointees, like David Hager, whom Bush appointed to a high-profile role in the FDA, who anally raped his wife and then left money for her on the dresser, while lecturing about morality and culture wars.  Then there's Beverly Russell, GOP bigshot in South Carolina and Christian Coalition authority, who raped his stepdaughter Susan Smith for years.  So you don't have to be elected to be a "quality" Republican.

All of those things are complex.  The ideologue wants something like, "It's [fill-in-blank] who is the cause of your troubles.  Get rid of them, and your troubles vanish."  Someone might counter that the teabaggers talk a lot about a "spending problem," but they don't mean the spending that government sends their way ("keep your government hands off my welfare").  What they mean is, "I don't want these here blah people gittin' them slave reparation payments, or them illegals takin' away my lawn-cuttin' jobs."  Try cutting Social Security or Medicare to retired teabaggers and their tune will change instantly.  Or tell them we can't afford to build a mile-high wall along every foot of border, and even if we did, it wouldn't work.  They aren't worried about a "spending problem," they're angry at minorities.

Narrow ideology is always focused on The Enemy.

FTFA: "The way he lashed out against Rand Paul...he's begging for a primary," says Kibbe, who continues on to say that he hopes to replace Graham with someone "who is worthy of that seat."

True enough. I just added his name because the GOP considered that one "in the bag" until Atkins inserted foot into mouth and bit down firmly.

Kibbe singles Graham out as one of his Super PAC's major targets in the midterm elections, citing Graham's criticism of the filibuster over the Obama administration's drone program led by Sen. Rand Paul's (R-Ky.) as a major reason for replacing him.

Graham criticized Paul for holding that filibuster?  The one where he demanded that Obama agree that drones should only be used over US soil in the event of an immament threat - the exact same thing Obama had already agreed to days before?

And here I though teabaggers were all for cutting government waste.  You'd think they'd be against holding a completely redundant and useless filibuster.
 
2013-05-08 01:00:26 PM
While this might seem like a good thing it's not. The thought of a senator from SC who thinks Lindsay Graham is a liberal is terrifying. And make no mistake as yesterday showed no matter who the republican nominee is they will win that race.

Of course they have a ban. If they let gays get married, it would completely destroy the sanctity of a SC Republican's God-given right to serial adultery as well as the urge to keep farking those poor chickens.
