A week or so ago I wrote this concerning Stacy McCain’s Zeigest posts:

While the rest of us have been talking about the media Stacy McCain has been doing something interesting. Actually covering a possible motive and inspiration for the shooting in Arizona:

Today I’m looking at Bryon’s York’s latest and lo and behold guess what the topic is?

At a time when Loughner was increasingly unable to control his own mind, he apparently welcomed “Zeitgeist’s” message that there were sinister forces out there trying to control it for him. The meaning of “Zeitgeist’s” role in the Tucson violence is not that Loughner’s motive was political. It’s that the movie’s insane incoherence proved to be an awful stimulant for one dangerously incoherent mind.

When this eventually becomes the story of the shooting, lets not forget who was there before Byron, Before Rush and who kept on this story after ABC dropped it.

This is called “reporting”.

Stacy McCain notices what a difference 4 years has made in the mind of Charles Johnson.

Apparently when he wiped his archives he missed a post because the this link that I’ve kept in my blogroll still works to wit:

Yes Charles made Rush a Honary Lizardoid!

The above post is on my blogroll under “Honorary Lizardoid Rush Limbaugh” and still links to LGF. Charles has not yet purged this post from his archives, until he does it will remain my link to LGF to remind us of the days before the great 180

In June of 1812 the United States of America declared War on Great Briton over a variety of causes not the least of which was the impressment of sailors from American merchant ships into the British Navy (which was at the time involved in a life and death struggle with Napoleon and France). Four months before war was officially declared president decided that the 16 American warships that composed the US navy best use were as shore batteries defending harbors. Being that England had 600 ships this was seemingly a rational and logical decision.

On Election Day 2008, Barack H. Obama won the presidency winning states such as North Carolina and Virginia where Democrats had not taken in years and retaining democratic strongholds such as Massachusetts and New Jersey; while in congress Democrats made solid gains winning a large congressional majority in the house and a super-majority in the Senate.

On every major network Pundits proclaimed it the start of a new democratic Era. Books poured out about the president, T-Shirts were selling briskly, a massive crowd turned up for the inauguration, and off in England Russell T. Davies was writing a script for the final episode of David Tennant’s run as the 10th Doctor Who’s climatic event of the first part was to take place as the world awaited a plan by President Obama to solve the world wide economic crisis. Pundits a plenty reasoned that the era of Reagan was over. Republicans such as Chris Buckley and David Brooks talked about the power of Obama and David Frum began his Frum Forum determined to take the Republican Party away from what they considered the conservative extreme and back to the middle where it could one day triumph.

In February 1812 Two American Captains in Washington on separate errands heard of the decision of the President and naval department; Captain William Bainbridge and Captain Charles Stewart were in before Naval Secretary Hamilton and made their case, they were so persuasive that he arranged a meeting with President James Madison.

Shortly after the election Rush Limbaugh unapologetic defender of conservatism and the single most popular person on Radio declared that it was not the time to stop fighting. The maintained that the election was not a mandate against conservatism, indeed it was only the inclusion of Conservative Republican Sarah Palin that gave the campaign any energy and accounted for the only brief lead in the polls the campaign enjoyed. As Governor Sarah Palin returned to Alaska where Democrats mindful of the energy she brought to the Republican side unleashed a string of frivolous ethics complaints determined to neutralize her once and for all Rush declared publicly on his radio show about President Obama “I hope he fails”. In February he was scheduled to be the keynote and final speaker at CPAC where he would face a crowd of conservative activists at their lowest ebb of their political lives…

Question: How bad are things actually for the democratic party and liberals?

When you leave the WW 2 memorial trashed after your rally, that’s bad

When you need Oprah to pay for people to go to your event, that’s worse.

But when you find yourself taking polls about a race that doesn’t exist, against an opponent that isn’t running to make an incumbent democratic senator look strong. That’s just idiotic:

The answer is not so well. Nelson leads Limbaugh 50-36 in that hypothetical match up. Nelson would have his party base pretty well locked up, independents would go for him overwhelmingly by a 58-30 margin, and even 21% of Republicans say they’d prefer Nelson to Limbaugh.

Earth to PPP Nelson isn’t running against Limbaugh and never will be. You make yourselves look like fools when this is what you are writing about 17 days before an election.
