GOP’s Pledge? Just Words…


Submitted for your consideration, a dirge in three parts:

1) Bruce McQuain's reaction to the Republican Pledge To America [WRSA editorial snark: What kind of pants-fouling cretins launch a major political initiative and yet still don't have a final version on the RNC website as of 8 pm edt the day of launch?];

2) Billy Beck's terse takedown of McQuain;

3) My comment on McQuain's post:

Between this unspeakably-lame minifesto and their utterly-predictable inability to meet even flaccid vows once elected, the Dead Elephants have killed not only themselves, but also the hope of a peaceful solution.

What happens when the intelligent, capable, realistic Americans awakened over the past several years realize that politics truly is a blood sport?


Buckle up, ladies and gentlemen.

We'll be in hard turbulence for the rest of this flight.

In a way, I'd almost prefer for "it" to happen during a Republican administration.
Wouldn't bother me a bit.

Eric "PATRIOT Act" Cantor signs are appearing in yards. Glad to know his politicial neck is on the block.
With this Pledge and a rag, we can dust our furniture. A sick parody of the Declaration of Independence.
It's more "Where else they gonna go?" More "Just give us another two years, four years, eight years. We'll fix everything."
More Tea, please.

I'll be voting down ticket this year. No incumbents nor republicans nor democrats need apply.

What we're seeing is a more or less open war between establishment Republicans and the Tea Party usurpers. The establicons think that they can save their political skins with anti-Obama sentiment and meaningless pledges. Anyone who thinks this is anything other than a jaded move aimed at consolidating power should stay tuned. Rep's will scream loudest just before the whole rotten edifice collapses.

I especially like the "utterly- predictable inability to meet even flaccid vows once elected". I cannot count the times in my life when they have welched on their campaign promises, and installed some socialist horseshit instead.

Both parties have had since 1865 to get their business together and have to-date failed, or been unwilling, to do so.

All of the bloodsuckers like things just as they are. Congress is nothing more than a never-ending pissing contest. Reminds me of the Army/Navy game. Win, lose, or draw; everything remains the same and We The People get the stink end of the stick.

Time to replace all of them. George Washington was right.

If paying attention, one MIGHT have noticed the huge "DRAFT" watermark run across the whole doc...

I heard on the radio today that they're already hacking away at it -- the social-con stuff for example is toast (not that this is NECESSARILY a bad thing, as it may sway some "independent" voters their way).

Regardless of the final draft, regardless of who wins now or in 2012 (if we make it that far) -- I don't expect any of this to influence what must come in any way.

Still, we must try -- just on the off chance that some miracle will happen, and enough will keep their word to turn things around and head off the horrors that now seem inevitable.

My vote (and other support) goes to the non-incumbent candidate whose positions come closest to my Constitutionalist/minarchist ideal.

My Faith is in the hand of Divine Providence.

Anybody got a better plan?
