  •  Does anybody remember the Special Comment (7+ / 0-)

    Keith Olbermann made last year when Kevin Stevenson, was dismissed as the Republican Party spokesman for Marathon County, Wisconsin? I wrote a diary about it back then: Hugging Republicans.

    It's really worth looking at, again, because Olbermann hit the nail on the head:

    The problem is, then and now, if you keep showing people the door, sooner or later there will be more people outside the door than inside it with you. -- Keith Olbermann

    Olbermann's prediction in that Special Comment seem to be coming to pass. Scrolling down the Front Page, I see the Paul Ryan's PAC: AARP is a 'left-leaning pressure group'. Then I looked at the Recommended Diaries and arrived here.

    A few days ago, just hours after I had read I No Longer Care What the Right Wing Says or Thinks, I received a phone call from somebody I know in Houston a few days ago. Lunching with die-hard Republicans who listened to Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity on a regular basis, who actually said that they were disgusted by them and would no longer listen to them. Why? They didn't like the way Rush and Sean were trying to take all the credit away from Obama and give it to Bush. Houston Texas Republicans said this.

     Looks like the Republican Party is losing support from all quarters and is imploding from within. I can't wait to see who they finally settle on as their candidate in the 2012 election. We're going to need a lot of popcorn.

    Great minds discuss ideas; Average minds discuss events; Small minds discuss people. -- Eleanor Roosevelt
