A Dialogue for the September 12th World

Are You a Republi-can or a Republi-CAN’T?

Posted by redsatellite on July 30, 2008

In the movie: Once Upon a Time in Mexico, Johnny Depp’s CIA character sneers-‘Are you a MexiCAN or a MexiCANT?

Well…meet the RepubliCANTS.

Ted Stevens‘s indictment yesterday could not have occurred at a more politically inopportune time for the senator from Alaska or for his fellow Republicans.

Republicans entered this election at a numerical disadvantage — 23 seats to defend, compared with 12 for Democrats — and have caught almost no breaks. Five Republican senators opted to retire and one resigned office last December, including incumbents in Virginia and New Mexico, where Democrats are strongly favored in the fall. Senate Republicans have fallen far behind their Democratic counterparts in fundraising.

That playing field emboldened Sen. Charles E. Schumer (N.Y.), chairman of the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee, to openly muse to reporters last week about the prospect of winning nine seats in November, which would give Democrats a 60-seat majority in January. That number that would allow them to break Republican filibusters and exert true majority control of the legislative body.

ANYTIME you ’embolden’ Charles Schumer…you know you’re in deep- DEEP Kimchi. How bad is it? Uh….the entire party should seriously consider committing hari kari.

Some Republican strategists noted yesterday that Stevens’s legal problems could also jeopardize Alaska at the presidential level. Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) has deployed staffers in the state, a sign that he intends to mount a serious campaign there. Political observers there cannot remember the last time a Democratic presidential candidate made a serious play for Alaska, which has not voted for a Democrat since President Lyndon B. Johnson in 1964.

It gets worse. How’s this for a completely ridiculous insipid observation:

Republicans are in desperate need of new, fresh ideas and faces,” said one Republican strategist who closely follows Senate races. “Stevens should resign immediately. The only thing he does by staying in is continue to damage his party.”

No…you inept twit, the Republicans are in desperate need of ethical stalwart conservatives who can MAINTAIN conservative values and principles. You don’t need ‘new and fresh ideas’. What you need is…to live up to the ones you’ve already had in place for years. Stop embracing every cockamamie liberal cause that rears its UGLY UGLY head. (eg. Gore-bal Warming, Fannie Mae & Freddie Mac bailout, Amnesty.)

The Republican Party has reached its NADIR..your apogee from the core- it’s bilious… mendaciousand yah- it puts me in a horrible mood!

    When we start talking about losing ALASKA, we are in deep, deep trouble. Dingy Harry with a veto proof majority.
