"Leaders are those who can detect the death of a horse and cease flogging it."

  1. Judging from his tireless defecation all over Mitt Romney, I suppose we can assume he doesn't consider himself a leader. Not according to his own standard, anyway.

    1. I haven't read that much about what Smitty thinks of Romney. Mitt wasn't exactly my first choice in this hoedown, either. Reminds me of the old prayer" "Lord, make my words tender and sweet, for I may have to eat them one day".

  2. I was a Santorum guy, but Mitt had the most of what matters most from the get. Being angry about that is childish. It's akin to throwing a rock at your neighbor's car because you drive a piece of crap.

    1. I can't speak for Smitty, but I'm not angry. I am extremely disappointed that for all the gains conservatives made in 2010, they could not rally around a single candidate who would make it all the way through the primaries.

  3. And your response belies the problem. Mitt Romney is as "conservative" as anyone else running. That's why he's winning. This freak contingent invested in calling him the bastard son of FDR is simply that...a freak contingent. They're an "establishment" unto themselves, and they will destroy this country if they're allowed to comfortably enjoy the proud stupidity in which they're currently enveloped. They're Brakabama's shiny hope, and he's polishing the hell out of them.

    1. "Mitt Romney is as "conservative" as anyone else running" We may just have to agree to disagree. The fact that you have to put "conservative" in "scare quotes" may belie a different problem.

      "calling him the bastard son of FDR" I don't believe that either. The truth lies somewhere in between.

    2. I don't "have" to do anything. I'm coming to find the term conservative to be completely detached from real meaning. If Newt Gingrich is a conservative, then Mitt Romney is Barry Goldwater. If Rick Santorum is "Reaganesque" then Mitt Romney is George friggen Washington.

      I don't deal in advertisements. Every candidate has a real record. Romney's is better than his opponents' if "conservative" is your yardstick for good.

      I don't consider this debatable. I'm willing to address any accusations, but they're rarely even made in any specific way. "Everybody" knows Mitt Romney is a liberal just like "everybody" knows George Bush is a retarded evil genius, and Dan Quayle can't spell.

      It gets tired. It's time to wake up.

    3. No, you don't "have" to do anything. You can choose to disagree. As do I.

  4. Why do democrats never pitch a bitch about the democrat party "establishment".

    I know. Do you?

    1. Because the Democrat party is a coalition party. Power trumps ideology.

  5. Again, your answer belies the problem. To imagine the republican party is monolithic, is to invite it's dissolution. It's as much a coalition as the democrat party is. It simply a coalition of people with common goals that aren't selfish and anti-American in nature.

    1. "To imagine the republican party is monolithic" I never said it was. There are a number of different factions. Just not nearly as many splinter groups as the Left.

      "It's as much a coalition as the democrat party is" Again, we'll have to agree to disagree.

  6. Bullshit! We're going to agree! I demand it!

    1. Okay! Okay! I agree! Now put down the double shot espresso with the Red Bull chaser and consider...decaf? Heh.

  7. I tried Red Bull once. It's like being on drugs or something. I'm high on life...and I'm a Pepper.

    hehe
