After seeing this sign at CPAC…

my question isn’t why GOProud is welcome here.

My opinion of David Frum is currently not printable

…it’s why the Frum Forum is.


When Lisa Murkowski lost her primary and decided to go write in the GOP decided to play it with kid gloves, after all they all knew her, it’s not like she was going to go and caucus with democrats…oh wait:

Dana Bash of CNN reports on Twitter that Murkowski said republicans should not count on her to be with them

Bottom line is this. If Murkowski won’t declare she will caucus with republicans we must assume a vote for Murkowski is a vote for Obama. If she is elected she will become the media darling, the “reasonable” republican that will be on every show talking “compromise”, in other words, she will be Dede.

Alaska it’s your state not mine, but this tells you the compromise candidates the GOP establishment backs are not worth a damn. Their only principle is the retention of their own power. If you choose to empower the administration by voting for Murkowski then you deserve all you get from her.

Your vote, your call and as always whatever your call on Tuesday, you will get the government you deserve.

…than to be a republican who is going after republicans:

Inglis said he was shocked during the health care votes as he watched protesters jeering Rep. John Lewis, a Georgia Democrat who was beaten as a leading civil rights activist in the 1960s.

Yes because Lewis’ situation 40 years ago means that he must never be criticized particularly by mere voters.

And of course we know there must be only reason why republicans could be against president Obama don’t we:

Inglis, 50, who calls himself a Jack Kemp disciple because he has emphasized outreach to minorities as the late Republican congressman did, thinks racism is a part of the vitriol directed at President Barack Obama.

“I love the South. I’m a Southerner. But I can feel it,” he said.

Ah racism, that must be it, there can be no other reason to oppose the president. No word on what he thinks the cause for the beating of Ken Gladney by an SEIU thug was. We know it can’t be racism since apparently the NAACP doesn’t think he isn’t black enough.

Take a look at memeorandum and you will see the left cheering like a bunch of drunks at a strip joint as he vents his anger against the base. I wonder why he is so upset?

In his primary runoff against prosecutor Trey Gowdy, Inglis failed to break 30 percent, an improbably low result for a sitting incumbent not embroiled in scandal. emphasis mine

Boy he is even less popular than the democratic party!

He says he doesn’t know what he will do after the election. If he keeps attacking the republican base he is sure to get a job as a commentator for MSM after all they are almost as popular as he is.

…if being questioned by the weekly standard on your positions causes you to call the cops then you have no business being in the house:

Earlier today Lindsay Beyerstein reported that Scozzafava responded to an AFL-CIO questionnaire by saying she would support card-check legislation that eliminates the secret ballot requirement for organizing unions. As Beyerstein notes, this contradict statements made by a Scozzafava spokesman in September.

So after the dinner, I asked Assemblywoman Scozzafava if she supports card check. “Yes, yes I do,” she replied.

At that point someone from her campaign placed himself between Scozzafava and me and told me I should direct all my inquires to the campaign’s spokesman. I nonetheless asked Scozzafava if her signing of the Americans for Tax Reform pledge not to vote to raise taxes means she would oppose any health care bill that raises taxes. “What kind of taxes?” she replied. Then another couple of gentlemen interposed themselves between Scozzafava and me as Scozzafava headed for the door.

I spotted Scozzafava later as she was walking to the parking lot, and asked her: ” Assemblywoman, do you believe that the health-care bill should exclude coverage for abortion?” She didn’t reply. I asked her twice more. Silence.

After she got into her car, I went to my car and fired up my laptop to report the evening’s events.

Minutes later a police car drove into the parking lot with its lights flashing. Officer Grolman informed me that she was called because “there was a little bit of an uncomfortable situation” and then took down my name, date of birth, and address.

This is the RINO that the NRCC wants us to support? This is the candidate that Newt endorsed? Her positions are bad enough but this performance shows this lady (who might be nice, I’ve never met her) is not ready for prime time even as a democrat.

It matters not our feudal lord demands allegiance to Dede Scozzafava and we must obey, at least we would have to if it wasn’t the 21st century.

If that isn’t worth a Nelson I don’t know what is.

And if you won’t accept my reasons to care about this how about we ask the American Papist:

* NY23 is the only congressional race this election cycle, so everyone is watching it, making the stakes very high.
* The pro-life republican candidate (Hoffman) is gaining far more grassroots support than the liberal, pro-abortion republican candidate (Scozzafava). He is a classic underdog, come-from-behind candidate. Now he has to beat the pro-abortion democrat (Owens).
* if Hoffman beats Scozzafava and Owens, it sends a strong message to the Republican Party about what kind of candidate will win in upcoming elections, namely, one who is strong on “social issues” like traditional marriage and pro-life. It says that “RINOs” (Republicans in Name Only) is not the way to go. People are more passionate about issues and the integrity of their representatives than they are about the letter behind a person’s name.

You know the Palin idea is looking better and better

Vote Hoffman!
