News flash!!!! Washington Post pet Republican Jennifer Rubin defends the feckless, hopeless, surrender-monkey GOP Establishment against the enemy – the conservative Tea Party movement. I know, right? Who knew? I mean, besides everybody.
Conservative Milton Wolf, a radiologist, has been running a very strong primary campaign to unseat squishy Senator Pat Roberts in Deep Red Kansas. But opposition research revealed an unsavory bit of Wolf’s past (find it yourself), some FaceBook posts from 2010. Shockingly (I know, right?), Jen Rubin teed off yesterday on Doctor Wolf. And I mean, she lit into him like she was Alabama and he was Auburn. She let him have it with both barrels. And while she was at it, she ridiculed Jim DeMint’s Senate Conservative Fund, in no uncertain terms.
I don’t know if she’s ever had tough words for crooked Democrats like Charlie Rangel, Eric Holder, Barney Franks, Franklin Raines, Chris Dodd, Diane Feinstein, or Harry Reid; or if she’s gone off on moonbat Democrats like Debbie Wasserman-Shultz ; or made sport of just plain idiot Democrats like Hank “Okinawa tipping over” Johnson, Sheila Jackson “Planted a flag on Mars” Lee, or Al “Global Warming” Gore.
She treated Milton Wolf, the SCF, and the entire Tea Party movement like we were all evil, crazy, and stupid. I’m not exaggerating. Read the venomous attack yourself, (but find your own link – I’m not helping her). This article could have been written by any typical lefty-rag JournoCommy from the JournoList. But it came from somebody whose byline says Jennifer Rubin’s take from a conservative perspective. Nice move, Karl Rove in drag.
It is important that political party remember its true mission, its vision for America. It’s important to vet candidates, and it’s important to police the current crop of elected people. While it’s sometimes advisable to elect moderates in a region where true movement believers won’t win, it’s likewise advisable to elect movement believers in your home states. Sometimes it’s time for an incumbent to go because you ought to do better (Mike Lee was better, for example).
The Establishment GOP doesn’t believe in any of that, including the part about vetting their candidates. For every Christine O’Donnell the Tea Party has given us, I can give you ten Lincoln Chafees, Jim Jeffords, Charlie Crists, and Arlen Specters that were loved, supported, and wooed by the Karl Rove wing of the Party.
The Tea Party and Jim Demint’s SCF might pick the occasional bad apple. But without our movement you’d also have no Ted Cruz, Mike Lee, Rand Paul, Allan West, Trey Gowdy, Marco Rubio, Tim Scott, and we could go on but you get the idea. Without our movement and the heroes we’ve gotten elected, there would be no resistance to the Obamanistas and we would even now be sliding deeper into the HopeChangeLeftistDisaster the Democrats want. Worse than we are, I mean.
God knows the Jen Rubin’s RINO Mafia hasn’t lifted a finger to stop them. They don’t even want to.
