NOW WE’RE IN FOR IT

(2PM EST – promoted by Nightprowlkitty)

Unfortunately, I tuned into Morning Joe this am and heard from everyone on the “panel” exactly what I thought I’d hear after the TeaParty shake-up.

Pat was supressing great excitement.  You could tell it was hard for him not to burst.  Joe mentioned as casually as if asking what the weather would be that now SS was up for cuts.  Harold Ford looked glum; you could tell he was looking for an exit so he could make a further right turn.  Mika wasn’t there but another blonde took her place – hair a little longer.  Mark Helperin – oh, I can’t watch the guy after Greenwald skewered him awhile back.  But he’s on the bandwagon too:  The Republican Party is over – the Dems will win the Senate.  

I’m not in the employ of any MSM outlet; I am somewhat financially challenged; My teeth are good – but not in the category of the women of the MSM; I hate the “wars” we are fighting and what those wars have done to ME people; I live the life out here – not in there.  Hence, I am a “leftie”.

Do I have any insight as to electoral politics?  Do they?  Moving on… These tea party people were given a voice by monied interests – I get that, and that is another diary – but I also get that the Republican Party allowed them a voice unlike the Democratic Party allowing us to the microphone – much less giving us a voice.

I know the reaction of the Democratic Party – even in the midst of all these mouths celebrating a Democratic movement now that the “crazies” have been elected.

They – will – move – to – the – right.

Did you hear me?  They.will.move.to.the.right.

Oh, we’re in for some good times, ladies and gents.  And I wouldn’t be so sure of some of the tea people not getting in office.

But what do I know?  I’m part of the Democratic Party this admin has chosen to ignore.  Ewwww go away – we’ll call you when election day comes.

This is not good – certainly not for us and more importantly, not for the country.

Thoughts?

    Just tea for two

    and two for Tea

    Just you for me

    And me for you alone.

    Nobody near us to see us or hear us.

    that’s the bit that upsets me most.

    I think the Illinois rep who was interviewed said it:

    We are seeing new people voting.  People who felt disenfranchesed before and never voted.

    (the gist of it)

    That’s a lot of people and there’s a lot of money out there to grab those people.

  1. And………..

    I don’t quite have a handle on anything but the toilet flusher, and I know we’ll be needing Roto Rooter soon.

    and her batshit nuts posse. When the party leadership came out against them and wanted them to be quiet, they said go screw yourself. When the polls said they couldn’t win, they said watch us.

    That’s how it’s done folks.

    It would be interesting too to watch her prowl the senate cloakroom searching for signs of degenerate behavior.

    She’s got her work cut out for her: about all the senate does is masturbate.

    something intelligent to say. Maddow apparently fills the quota of intelligent women allowed on tv.

  2. Take the Newt Gingrich self-destruction of ”94 -”96 and multiply that by 10. Teabaggers will hurt the republican brand more than “W”. We can depend on them saying stupid shit every time the open their mouths, yet the republican establishment will be forced to cater to them to a certain extent, to keep down even more dissent within their party. This will cause most policies they propose or manage to enact to be considered extreme by a majority of an electorate that will be seeking to fix what they’ve screwed up in 2012.

    A Newt-type self-destruction on steroids, that’s my prediction.

  3. It’s an absolute certainty that when the Rubes move right, the Dems move right in tandem with them.  And you get this too, is that while the Dems are moving right in an establishmentarian/Wall Street sense, the Rubes are moving to a right-populist stance.  Post bank bailout, which resonates more, being populist fire-breathers or dutiful servants of Big Capital?  

    Meanwhile, the very concept of a consistently anti-corporate left populism is being allowed to disappear from the American political mind and landscape.

    Chris Matthews just got a shot in at “Progressives” in his closing commentary.

    Not verbatim but

    gleeful Progressives with whom he spoke last night and who say that the Democrats will be the recipients of this race and who think Christine O’Donnell cannot win should be very careful.  They are  

    WAIT FOR IT

    wrong and this next word is just my own takeaway…elitist.

    So somehow the Progs get dissed.  I can’t get it thru my head that Chris was hanging out with Progressives – Villagers yes but Progressives – I doubt it.

     

  4. the think tanks of the left nor the think tanks of the right, it lies with Richard.
