Liberal goo-goo Mike McCabe sees dead people

(page 1 of 2)

Imagine the surprise here at the Policy Werkes to learn that the Republican Party is “at death’s door.” That is the clichéd term used by self-appointed, good-government goo goo Mike McCabe to say that it’s all over for the forces of conservatism.

Notice has been given. The Republican Party appears to be terminally ill,” says Dr. Mike in a placebo of a piece eagerly reprinted by a corporation that speaks in The Progressive Voice and thinks in the past tense.

Formerly with the Wisconsin Democracy Campaign and before that mouthpiece for the Madison School District, Mr. McCabe is now the one-man band for a political start-up he calls “Blue Jean Nation.” New name for your father’s Oldsmobile: the same old progressivism thinly disguised in unworked work clothes.

The Grand Old Party is moribund because, well, Mike says it is. No evidence, no empirical data. Just his say-so: “The signs are clear and conspicuous.” So conspicuous, they don’t need description, apparently. Just a tendentious dose of vilification.

On top of what he condemns as “feed-the-rich, screw-the-poor policies,” McCabe throws down the race card, which should puzzle Ben Carson, Ted Cruz, and Marco Rubio, all of whom have been polling well. Or the only black U.S. Senator, a Republican from South Carolina. All quite hale and hearty, for dead people.

“Shameless and shameful appeals to racism,” McCabe? Speak for yourself.

But that’s what you can expect from liberal pall bearers when you criticize the Current Occupant. Remember when Democrats hailed Barack Obama as “The One”? He took office in 2009 with 60 Democrats in the Senate (counting two liberal independents) and 257 House members. Today, Democrats number 14 fewer in their Senate caucus; the House is down 69 Democrats.

The "undressed Emperor" is The Donald. Has there ever been a more narcissistic candidate for public office? If you use the same words to criticize him that he uses to criticize others, he goes ape $hit. If he is the Republican nominee in 2016, Mrs. Clinton can begin measuring the drapes.

After 8 years of pure, unmitigated vitriol aimed at the President, should anyone be surprised that when The Donald "ups" the rhetoric, the Republican base follows him into the gutter? You reap what you sow, Blaska. Enjoy!

Question: Are we now supposed to only pay attention to those who offer their opinions with evidence and empirical data? And if so, what will you do to boost claims like "Is there any doubt that crime is getting worse?" when the evidence claims the exact opposite? I'll hang up and listen.

When did Democrats hail Barack Obama as "The One"? To paraphrase the old dairy promotion: Got link?

Now that we're hopefully past inane notions like "keeping Christ in Christmas" for another year, let's move onto more important issues. Like keeping my lunch in my stomach after being forced to picture a four-way with Paul Ryan. Where can I return that unwanted holiday gift, Blaska?

Anonymous at 11:37 AM asks when did Democrats hail Barack Obama as "The One?"

Earliest example: 12-08-07: [Oprah] Winfrey tells Iowa crowd: Barack Obama is 'the one', CNN

How is Oprah representative of Democrats in any way? She's never held elective office, never even run for one. Is she a registered member of the Democratic party? Does she even vote? Also, how do you infer that she capitalized The and One? That's a neat trick on your part, but it's not exactly based in fact. You, an actual Republican, have a man crush on Paul Ryan. Would it be accurate to say that represents Republicans when it clearly does not?

You got no link, Blaska. And that's not all you ain't got.

Ryan is the king of pork and a true Rockefeller Republican. He may sway the Wall Street folks but won't get much support in fly-over country. Cruz, Trump or Carson for me.
