John McCain Enshrined In The G.O.P. Hall Of Shame

As the Republicans continue their post-mortem of the November, 2012 election, an ever-growing chorus of voices—from members who call themselves Conservatives—are calling for drastic changes in how the party should operate in order to win in the future. Sadly, it isn’t the “batten down the hatches, full speed ahead” type of call you would expect from principled-politicians—isn’t that an oxymoron?—who actually stand for the things that earned them the support of Conservatives and organizations such as the T.E.A. Party. Instead, we are hearing calls of retreat and compromise, if not total abandonment. Enter John McCain, the next member of the Gutless On Principle Hall of…

Too Bad Romney Wasn’t This Concerned About Super PACS During The Primaries

When polling showed Newt Gingrich in the lead just before the Iowa Caucuses, a Super PAC backing Mitt – “Mr. Inevitable” – Romney released a barrage of attack ads against the former House Speaker, hitting him for supporting a national health insurance mandate, “amnesty for millions of illegal immigrants,” and for appearing in an ad alongside then-House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) in 2008 urging the country to address climate change. When asked about the ads in a debate prior to the New Hampshire primary, Mitt claimed ignorance over their content, yet declared that they were true and accurate. He concluded that since he is prohibited by law to interfere…

Why Won’t Conservatives Just Let Romney Win?

According to the number 2 House Republican, it’s time for everyone to coalesce around Mitt Romney – aka Mr. Inevitable – so he can focus on losing to running against Obama in November. Karl Rove – the George Castanza of the political world because they both pretend to be architects – declares that Romney “appears ready to grind out a victory (for the nomination) – and (is) well-positioned to win the presidency.” An ever-increasing number of conservative critics, including several members of the conservative media, have thrown their support behind Mitt-the-Flip. So why, with all of this momentum, are conservatives so reluctant to fall in-step and just let Romney…

Mr. Subliminal Wrote Romney’s CPAC Speech

As Mitt “The Severe Conservative” Romney saw his coronation as the Republican candidate for President slipping away, he didn’t fire anyone – as we all know, he likes being able to fire people – instead, he hired someone.  According to an unnamed source, the decision was a no-brainer: After seeing a video of his performance, Mitt knew that Mr. Subliminal was the only way he was going to convince the people at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) that he possessed the conservative credentials that his past record would seem to indicate he lacked. Mr. Subliminal is so skilled at slipping suggestive words…

Conservatives Of The World Unite!

February 7, 2012 – A date which will live in infamy. OK. . . not exactly. But conservatives in the states of Minnesota, Missouri and Colorado spoke loud and clear when they gave upstart Rick Santorum decisive wins over the inevitable candidate, Mitt Romney, in all three states. The message? It’s quite simple actually. It’s the same message that’s been shouted from the rooftops since Newt Gingrich won big in South Carolina a few weeks ago: Conservatives and T.E.A. Party Republicans will not sit back and let the Republican establishment shove the only candidate who can beat Obama* down our throats. *recent polling shows Mitt now losing Of course, the…
