A sign?  Is the Right Wing waking up?  At least a little bit?  

Well, that remains to be seen.

Check this out from RedState.  To me, it sounds like they're just as delusional as they were yesterday, but I'm cynical so excuse me.  

In a post titled The Charlatans, they write:

The GOP spent a ton of money through a bunch of organizations, including Super PACs, that was flat out wasted. The Newt Gingrich Super PAC was just a sign of things to come it seems. The excuse that is going to be used is that had these groups not spent the money, the GOP would have suffered major losses.
And what else?
"But the GOP damaged itself badly in the Senate. It was not just Richard Mourdock and Todd Akin as much as the GOP might like to point fingers at them. Scott Brown, Tommy Thompson, etc., etc., etc.  Senate Republicans have consistently patted themselves on the back in their social club, found hard in primaries against conservatives, and nominated some seriously crappy candidates. Will the Senate GOP actually clean up its act? It has left many of the base uninspired and unwilling to help. Because of it, the GOP turned to rich donors who tend to look down their noses at the base. They set up outside groups."
Puhleez. They've only got it half right.

Hmm, keep going….
"The outside groups need to have a serious accounting. For months they touted their get out the vote efforts, ground game, ad operations, polling operations, voter contact, etc. and they really were full of b.s. for the most part."
Okay, that sounds interesting…..
"Additionally, the Romney team objectively failed to put on a decent ground game and the supposedly supplemental ground game from outside groups was ephemeral. In 2008, one of the smartest things Barack Obama did was keep his staff in Chicago and use his team, not the Democrats’ usual hucksters.  As long as the GOP keeps relying on the usual hucksters, charlatans, and con artists it’ll keep getting the same results."
Okay, hold up.  They blamed their candidates and tacticians.  But notice nothing about their failed policies.  Nothing about their soullessness that ignores the poor, the sick, the disenfranchised, climate change, ……REALITY---NONE OF THAT.  

It's all the fault of consultants, bad candidates, focus groups, charlatans and hucksters.

GUESS WHAT, BITC***?

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

      I wanted to see a train wreck, only it's not so much a train wreck as much as the denial that goes on afterwards.  Folks can't seem to agree upon why and how the train crashed.  Was it the engineer?  Was it the fuel?  Was it the rails?  I'd say they'll settle on the latter, probably blaming Obama for setting a brick or two on tracks. sigh....

    community organizing.  They can sneer at it all they want.  It has now kicked their collective butts in two Presidential elections.  Community organizing.

    If they do, they will continue to lose.

    Their party needs to have a Come to Jesus meeting and rethink their Norquist-loving, racist whistling, fact-denying, woman-bashing, pro-1% positions if they intend to get anywhere.

    That the people on the ground don't get it... well, there ya go.

    So I say... get MORE conservative. Go ahead. Talk to tables. Enshrine Rand. Capitulate to racists. Do that and more and we'll keep the WH for another decade or more.

    throwing some epic temper tantrums over there.  I'd laugh if it weren't so....baldly grotesque.  I mean that, and am not engaging in hyperbole to mock them, though I will admit that was my original intent on checking on on them before I headed to bed tonight.

    Go look for yourself.  First post, Erickson blames the GOP's loss among women squarely on black women who "kill babies".   All the while trying to pre-empt reasoning that the GOP might need to decouple itself from evangelicals in order to appeal to a wider, and changing electorate.

    He then posted a second entry where he enters full on cannibalism mode, blaming Todd Akin and Murdouck for being oratorical disaster areas, and Romney for being a weak candidate.

    Go and read for yourself....and remember that is is a 37 year old man.    The same man who wrote an article entitled "Obama is Toast" less than a week ago.

    Like I said, I checked in on them for the humor factor, but what I found truly is...grotesque and rather horrific.   The Party of Lincoln, TR, of Eisenhower reduced to this.  

    Barry Goldwater would spit on this kind of thing,  even if it would be a true waste of saliva.

  •  Their analysis not stupid (0+ / 0-)

    It is half right ... they ran some seriously incompetent campaigns ... and yes they also have a relatedly terrible ideology (common denominator, con artistry?) but maybe if they ponder the one problem they'll stumble upon the other ...
