Bitter, Sobbing, Jealous Brats

Republicans have acted desperately over the last few weeks, changing the theme of the elections every other hour. They tried to make Mark Foley's actions the democrats' fault. That didn't last long. They tried to make North Korea Bill Clinton's fault until they realized that they should have been governing for the last six years. They tried talking about the Iraq War until they finally got an update on the situation over there. If John Kerry was a flip-flopper, the republicans are the flop-droppers, dropping their flop in every new pasture in which they roam.

The latest pasture could be summarized as the "republicans must win because democrats cannot win" pasture. They're dropping a lot of flop in this pasture. It seems that the republicans have finally let desperation get the better of them. Instead of coming up with solutions for North Korea, Iraq or Mark Foley, they are behaving like 8-year-olds by trash-talking democrats of whom they are becoming desperately jealous. When Sean Hannity and Rush Limbaugh trash talk Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid, people begin to realize what a bunch of poor losers they are. They simply can't stand the idea that anyone outside of their circle might get into the spotlight, and people are getting turned off by their vitriol.

Long time fans of Sean Hannity are bridling at his suggestion that they are "cut-and-run" conservatives. They are getting sick of his irrational hatred and bitterness. When conservative talk show hosts start lashing out at even long-time supporters it is a true indication that they are going into a full time meltdown. His audience is beginning to acknowledge what I have often tried to point out: Hannity is just as corrupt as George Bush; he's just as corrupt as Denny Hastert; he's just as drunk on power as Mark Foley.

The sad fact is that the Sean Hannity's and the Denny Hasterts of the world are desperate for attention and power and it's getting ugly to listen to them blowup on air. It almost makes me feel sorry that he and his fellow hit men are finally going to be told "no." They won't know what to do. These are the grownup versions of the kids who got every toy they asked for. They always tattled on everybody because they always felt bitter about their lives. They always complained; they always blamed and they always will. They can't stand the idea of not getting their way this November.

Well the American people are not like their parents. They aren't going to spoil these rich kids just because they cry and complain. They aren't going to feel sorry for them when they get jealous of Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi. Nobody's going to feel sorry for these rich brats when the democrats raise taxes for high-income earners.

Moreover, the Denny Hasterts and Sean Hannitys of the world are starting to be discovered as part and parcel of the Hollywood culture. They live in show biz and they live like rock stars. They live fast and loose but they pretend to be buddies with the conservative common people in America. I know a lot of rural, conservative, red-blood hard-living roughnecks who don't like it when the rich pretend to be like them. They don't like it when rich people put on a costume and act like common people. It insults them. In fact most of the people who listen to Hannity and call themselves "common people" are simply wearing costumes themselves. They're suburban cowboys, playing dress up. They don't have an ounce of authenticity in their blood. I know common people. They don't find it necessary to scream in bold letters that they are common people.

I'm digressing, but the point is, the fa├žade is finally crumbling for conservative talk show hosts and the caviar-republicans. They are putting off their listeners and they are insulting their friends because they are slipping out of power and desperately attacking anyone who happens into their path. And just when I'm about to feel sorry for these sobbing brats I remember their behavior with Mark Foley.
