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.
