Rovian: Hydrocephalic ruling class political propagandists; some with pointy heads
Michelle Bachman won the Iowa straw poll. The Rovians tell us it does not mean anything. Their reasoning is that the solid candidates with any prayer of winning, meaning the ruling class establishment picks, did not play in Iowa. My take is that the establishment picks did not participate because they did not want to start their campaigns with a king sized butt whoopin’ right out of the gate. But, I could be wrong as my head is not quite as large as Karl’s. Actually no one’s is.
Leading up to the Florida straw poll, the Rovian consensus was that whoever wins it will be the Republican candidate. Always happens that way. Count on it they said. The establishment’s contenders were in it, but Herman Cain cleaned their collective ruling class clocks. So Florida is now meaningless. Or so it will be reinforced upon us that it is.
I am not a political prognosticator. I am an American, like most, who has lived life where the rubber meets the road, as opposed to where the talking head meets the television camera. Being an observer of and full participant in life beyond Washington, DC, I believe when the dust settles on this political horse race the Rovians will be left wondering what hit them. Dick Morrisdotcom may collapse all together. It could be ugly.
They are missing the point. It is a really big point too, sort of like the one atop some of their heads. They are absolutely enamored with their own brilliance. So much so that they are incapable of interpreting the message that Americans are communicating to them. Or, they simply are not listening and do not care, which makes them as dangerous to the republic as are the socialists. They are that way, because they have always been successful at steering public sentiment. No more. Polls, politics and punditry are going to change. The Rovians will either undergo some evolutionary change or become extinct. Some of them will morph into angry Jimmah Carters and never shut up until the last shingles are laid on the roofs of their collapsing habitats for inhumanity. Whether for the good of our country or for its destruction, change is coming. And out here in the hinterlands, Americans are going to have a say. Refreshing.
The point is not too complicated. Conservative minded Americans are simply tired of the establishment’s good ole boys. That is why, Karl, that they picked Bachman in Iowa and Cain in Florida. Now break out your little white board and magic marker and tell me what part of that it is that you cannot grasp. You Rovians have already shown us the propensity to toss overboard the people’s conservative choices because the establishment picks were shown the door. Apply a little introspect fellas and decide if you are going to board the freedom train or be run over by it.
Where does that leave us? Ann Coulter prostrates herself before the image of Chris Christie, but I am afraid that image needs a bucket of cold water tossed on it. There are a couple of reasons. Christie has read too many press clips and listened too much to the adoration of Miss Ann and others. He has become to full of himself. Self-absorbed politicians are what we are rejecting. Even if he is able to reign in the self-adoration, he is in the process of selling his soul to so-called Republican billionaire donors. The country-club Republicans who are capable of pushing another McCain like candidacy on us. We saw how that turned out.
Not to steer off the road here, but has anyone been paying attention to Hillary Clinton? I have been waiting for one of the big talkers to say something, but none have. The face is a little less worn out looking and no so puffy. It is probably a combination of Botox and booze avoidance. The hairdo is getting longer and blonder. Just an observation.
There is only one potential candidate who has shown the independence and spine to take on the establishment. A candidate that is boldly and unapologetically conservative. Sarah Palin. The name that conservative pundits avoid like the plaque and the name that drives liberal pundits to move to Alaska and write silly books filled with unsupported gossip.
Here is my conspiratorial thought for the season. Around the time for the national release of “The Undefeated”, Sarah Palin will announce that she is in. When she wins the nomination, Obama will decide that he has been all that he can be. Unable to stand the thought of another woman becoming the first female president and with her new hairdo, all sobered up and Botoxed, Hillary will run to the rescue of the Democrat party. With of course a sacrificial challenge from Joe Biden. The most brutal political campaign in the history of our country will ensue. When the political Armageddon on the Potomac ends, America will be standing tall and proud or it will be over.
Wishy washy, good ole boy establishment Republicanism is not going to save our country. Bold conservatism will. Go work on your bunker.
