Right Wingers See Themselves as Pariahs

Okay. This took two days to digest and Fitzmas, or as Al Franken says, Fitznukah, since it will take a few days for all the presents to arrive, distracted me.

On Thursday, with the announcement that Miers was pulling out for George, news anchors were asking right wing pundits and politicians, "who would you like to see nominated?" And the answer was the same again and again.

More important, the answer was unrehearsed, not a talking point. It was a pattern. Each respondent replied along the lines, "If I say a name it might ruin it for that nominee."

Over and over again, these right wing leaders, for a moment, reflected, looked inside themselves, evaluated the state of affairs in America today, and decided that their endorsement might just be the kiss of death for any nominee.

Now we hear that the Virginia gubernatorial candidate assiduously avoided Dubya when he came to his state. An article indicates that the Washington state GOP won't be bringing Bush or Cheney back this year to help with fundraising.

When a powerful politician or pundit, on camera, live, faces the glaring epiphany, that he, or she (Bay Buchannan was one of them) could harm a nominee by supporting him or her, that's a sure sign that their end is near.

All the parties to the left of the culture of corruption Republicans have an incredible opportunity. It is time to get the right wingers talking as usual, because things are not as usual, and the total lies and bullshit spin they've been spewing and passing as truth are not making it anymore. People are buying what they're selling. People are watching these chronic liars and finally seeing them for what they are. And they know it and that's why they've figured out that their endorsement is a kiss of death.

But we can't just wait for this to passively happen. People tend to be forgiving of their own legislative representatives. We have to work harder now to put their feet to the fire, to tie them to Bush and Cheney, Rove and Libby. We have to point out their despicable votes for the Bankruptcy bill, for cuts to medicare and food stamps, for bogus drug programs that benefit big Pharma, for maintaining the lies that led us to war, for not having the character and patriotism to challenge the liars who will keep sending our GIs to die so a deception can be maintained.

We have to do this with every congressional district, with every senator, Republican and Democrat, who does not start insisting that we pull out of Iraq, that we start acting fiscally responsible, start taking care of the weakest people in our nation, instead of cutting their health care, their food stamps. We have to fire these losers and replace them with responsible leaders who will make us proud. We have to go after incumbent senators, Republican and Democrat who are part of the problem. They will have more money. They will get more air time. It does not matter. We, the people, can take back America.
