Worried?  That's the pay off for their continued usefulness as talking point machines...

It's not a bug, it's a feature.

Kristol is nuts.  Let's get that out of the way first.

Palin has a passionate following among Tea Party types, but she would also expose herself again to mockery from the mainstream media.

Yes, it's the MSM's fault she's mock-worthy.

You know, after a certain point, you have to admit that guy selling watches from the back of the van wasn't all that convincing and you were terribly gullible for buying that that "Rolecks" from him.

Let that recognition start the healing process.  Then move on to purging the Teabagger infection.

Liberals are starting to worry that people like Mike Huckabee and Sarah Palin haven't been wearing their helmets to bed and will donate money to these candidates while espousing fiscal responsibility.

The dude told me that they were "factory seconds" and couldn't be sold for as much because of the typo. Way to ruin my day man.

Reminds me of that sesame street skit where a huckster tries to sell Ernie an invisible ice cream cone.  So Ernie buys it, and pays the guy with an 'invisible nickel'.

It seems like the most reasonable campaign strategy for a conservative.  Once you've fleeced the rubes and accumulated enough wealth to be considered rich, they'll fawn over you and spend their lives defending everything you do and say.  In their eyes, you ascend to the level of a deity when you sit on a throne of cash.

Then, and only then, do you seriously run for office.  Or, you know, you don't.  It's your decision.  And whatever decision you make is the right decision, because you are god-rich.
 
2014-02-07 09:50:07 AM
You're talking about people who religiously listen to talk radio each day even though the majority of each three hour segment is commercials that sound like bad email spam.

Palin will probably rip them all off in 2016 just like she did in 2012. When she doesn't run, the freeper crowd will declare this strong, proud American didn't enter the race bc the media said bad things about her.
 
2014-02-07 09:50:35 AM
We interrupt our continuing coverage of Chris Christie to examine which Republicans have a better shot at the presidency if Christie is damaged goods continue with our continuing coverage of Sarah Palin.

They really need an editor over there...

No, see, the rules are that no matter how long ago it was, anything anyone on the left did is topical to bring up. However, we are not allowed to discuss anything the right has done.
 
2014-02-07 09:53:17 AM
On the MSNBC morning show, Chuck Todd pushed back, saying that if Palin ran it would be for "a financial reason, to get back into the spotlight. Get the speaking fees back up."
This annoyed Kristol, who said that the establishment takes seriously such candidates as Jon Huntsman (who flopped), but dismisses the likes of Palin and Huckabee as people who "just want to make money."



Bull

Shiat


They write off Huntsman because he's not "Conservative enough", and they constantly fawn over Caribou Barbie until the next time she sticks her foot in her mouth, sometimes even giving her the pass on that, even.

There are 2  Republican Parties. One is the vestigial group of almost anonymous legislators concerned with governance. The other -- and vastly more prominent -- group that exists to extract donations from dumbos by playing upon fear, prejudice, and resentment. This includes virtually every elected Republican you can name, every media outlet, and hundreds of fund raising organizations of various sizes. These people are the reason that Republican ideas like the Affordable Care Act gets scorned. Because there is no money in agreeing. There is only money in scaring people and fanning resentments.

You mean it actually worked, and that's why she didn't run in 2012?  Sweet!  Everyone, now we know what to do if she does try to get into the national spotlight again.

I wish mockery worked on Donald Trump. :(

There's actually more than that.  I see four distinct groups within the GOP...none of which like each other very much.  They are currently in an all-out civil war within the party.

- Big Business "Screw you I got mine" types
- Libertarians "Freedom means I can do whatever I want whenever I want" types
- Religious fundamentalists "Jesus will destroy the world in our lifetime/evolution is a conspiracy" types
and the smallest group by far
- Moderates "Hey, let's go slowly with this, so we don't cause more damage than we fix" types.

Most of the GOP want to be seen as being in the last group, to capture the 'middle ground' voter.  But very few of them can actually pull it off.

There was some trollshiatter in the threads a while back, his name reminded me of a movie about a sheriff with a big stick, that was arguing against science because the sun rising in the East isn't a provable fact, therefore the Bible makes more sense.

It doesn't really bode well for the current Republicans when you guys keep comparing them to the Democrats of the 1980s. You know, the decade when the GOP would consistently kick their butts and win 400+ electoral votes in every presidential election...

And in Sharpton's case, he was a peripheral candidate who never gained more than single digits in the polls and dropped out pretty early into the primaries. Not really in the same league as a Palin, Santorum, or Herman Cain.

Their problem is that they are fundamentally unable to accept that they are wrong in any circumstance lest they have to address all the other nonsense of their Party. They have zero capacity for introspection because they know their entire platform is utter bullshiat and at every level is designed to do no more than 1. make more money and 2. acquire power for the sake of power. Absolutely zero intent toward governance in any sense.

The people that vote for Republicans for small-ish positions tell themselves "hey, this guy isn't so bad, I can vote for him." Well, that asshole willingly associates with the national party. He's an asshole too, because he looks at that group and says "I want to be one of them!"

No Huckabee is at least advancing his "Let's rewrite the Constitution so it follows the Bible" dominionist narrative.  The money is just icing on the cake.
