The Republican establishment is too ossified to respond to the crises of today. It is unable to see the threat the NSA poses with its spying on Americans. It doesn't understand that Benghazi is in fact a true scandal. They are unable to discern the fact that Obama with his "pen and a phone" pose a real and present danger to the Republic and our Constitution. McConnell is seeing the handwriting on the wall and is attempting to do something about it. Carrying a musket is very symbolic, but he would do better by actually fighting for conservative ideas in the Senate.

Whatever happen to the concept of "Rule of Law?" I thought one of the great accomplishments of the Founding Fathers was the institution of the Rule of Law. Meaning that you couldn't be arrested today because the king got up on the wrong side of the bed, you had to actually commit a crime. Under Obama, with his pen and phone, we no longer have the Rule of Law, but the Rule of Man. Our country is the worse for it.

A Bridge Too Far-Fetched

Chris Christie made his bed, now he has to lie in it. He sucked up to the liberal press just to get kicked in the teeth when he needed them the most. Republicans who cozy up to liberals thinking they will get support will only end up being McCained. Conservatives on the other hand expect Republicans to exhibit certain values like smaller government, fewer burdensome regulations, etc. Christie doesn't seem to be able to articulate those values and he can't expect any support from Conservatives.
It has always dismayed me that Republicans are always defending their positions and Democrats never defend theirs. But when we have such leaders as McCain, McConnell, Boehner, Romney, etc. we will always play defense rather than offense. We need to push Republicans like Paul, Cruz, Lee and Palin into leadership positions and lead us into a more robust conversation with the American People and persuade them Republicans are the better alternative.

Alec Baldwin vs. Liberal Bullies

Although Ann is correct in her analysis of the Baldwin affair, the problem lies mostly with Baldwin himself. He is deliberately over the top with whatever public statement he makes. This makes him an easy target for those who use him as a proxy for the bigger issue of liberalism and its hypocrisy. I have no sympathy for Baldwin, he's part of the 1% and therefore has enough money to make problems go away. Perhaps if he was more muted with his criticisms against President Bush he would receive more sympathetic treatment from conservatives, but he wasn't and now has to deal with those who will nit pick everything he does and says. Besides, he makes great copy for the tabloids.

Ann seems to forget that the same bunch who nominated McCain for the Presidency also nominated Mitt Romney four years later. It was also Ann who declaimed that only Romney could win. Well, a year after the election, I'm still waiting for the Romney Administration to take over. If we are ever to start winning elections again, Republicans need to run candidates who have a political philosophy consistent with the party base and stop nominating Republicans who only Ann thinks can win. We've seen her track record with the last election and it wasn't pretty.
Too bad the current RINO's in the Senate and House are incapable of standing up to the fear mongering of the far left. They just caved and rolled over in a defeat the RINO's characterize as a great "VICTORY!" Really? Seems like a total rout to me.

'Breaking Bad': A Christian Parable

Ann may have discerned the Christian story within Breaking Bad, but rest assured most of the rest of the country was glorifying Walt as the "good" guy. I did not watch even one episode of this series. Why? Because it glorified a terrible human being breaking the law and destroying the lives of all those he came into contact with. I did not want to add my audience point to the people who made millions of dollars on making such a barbarous show.
The real problem of course is this huge bubble which has encapsulated Washington DC. They made a TV show called the Dome based upon it. The DC Bubble takes ordinarily sensible conservatives and remakes them into media credible "moderates" ala John "The Maverick" McCain. Ted Cruz has so far escaped this transformation and it frightens the so-called Republicans within the Bubble by showing them what a real conservative is like. Let's not forget that only a Republican moderate can win a Presidential election, like Anne's endorsement of Mitt Romney. What we need is more Ted Cruz's and fewer John McCains!
Not sure that American slavery was the worst form of slavery in the world. After all, we didn't put four live slaves into the post holes of the four corners of a new building like the Aztec Empire did.
