And in case you were wondering about their plan for rebuilding the “movement”…well, here are some “highlights”:
So in other words, what we will be seeing from Viguerie (who, by the way, thought Sarah Palin was a great choice as McCain’s veep nominee – and she’s campaigning in Georgia for Saxby Chambliss? YEE HAH!!) is more harping, complaining, and cacophony while the grownups try to put our country back together again.
Citigroup funded ACORN, and now this huge financial services company is getting more tax dollars! Auto industry bankrupt due to CAFÉ requirements! Obama is only making the financial meltdown worse! Obama’s “Clinton problem” (sorry – no exclamation point…just saying “Clinton” provides all the shock value needed here). Ross Douthat agrees with George Weigel, but elsewhere it’s Kathleen Parker vs. James Dobson (I’ll take Parker, no more than four rounds) and Morton Kondracke vs. Rush Limbaugh (I’ll bet Mort barely answers the bell before Flush belly flops on him, flattening him through the canvas). Gee, wasn’t William F. Buckley great? (Supposedly, Pat Toomey is in here somewhere spouting off – oh God, please please please let Toomey run again in a Repug primary against Specter for 2010!!). “The Congressman, The Donor and The Tax Break” (hey, how on earth did some legitimate news reporting from the New York Times – and first rate, at that – get in here??!!).
But not to worry; Viguerie and his brethren will let us know when they actually figure out what they’re all about again.
Just don’t hold your breath while they do – it’s going to take awhile, people.
Update: And there's no letup on "the stupid" in sight, based on this (h/t Atrios).
