The Movement has been waging total war against Poppy-Bush-type ‘conservatives’ since 2001. Savage revenge for being forced out in Reagan’s second term and put in the ice box during Poppy’s unhappy reign.
Rightist attack machines denounced McCain as Satan incarnate for 3 years after 2001. He quelled the *overt* loathing by selling his soul in 2004 and embracing the Warlord. But everything reported as new now. Why? Because the Movement’s SA street fighters provide fresh B Roll tape?
This story is old. Remember Tom Davis? Bang, bang. And so on. We say this having sat in DeLay’s office as they schemed how to screw Davis as a RINO. Same arguments today against Crist. The Virginia Republican Party castrated Davis finally by blocking his Senate bid to succeed John Warner. Crist? Effectively the same.
We’ve all talked about it together, you know — the GOP as mere depleted host for the Movement parasite. A thousand times. Didn’t we all here predict years ago the RNC would be irrelevant once its utility gone?
So The Politco titans discover now in late April 2010 — stop the presses — the Crist mau mau in Florida might signal intramural purging of deviationists by the masses. What was their 140 character Tweet? They know what they are doing. Boldly declare the decade old self evident political reality as breaking news for the self congratulatory Morning Joe nation. Then they can do a round table with Grover, Cheney stooge Cesar Conda and two or three other Movement agitators to offer ‘balanced commentary.’
The Politico offers bromides that Crist is an ‘insider’ and anti-Washington populism is his problem. They also cite Kay Bailey Hutchinson and Bob Bennett as proof ‘conservatives’ are unpopular. Yet consider how Rick Perry ran – clearly an insider. It was hate that made the real difference. Hutchinson, despite her penchant for allegedly abusing staff, is also willing to retain independent higher brain functions. Bennett may be conservative but he is extremely civil and willing to listen. He’s not leading Fascist Obama Oppression chants. And Crist, well the poor bastard gave Obama a slap on the back. None of them are really Movement in these militant times.
But just to recap: The Politico breaks the news that the conservative base is angry.
