Maybe Republicans Should Try Being Popular

Insane, Ann. Republicans need to win the popularity contest by proposing their own legislation that will be popular with the low info reality tv pop culture crowd. After all what is really important is winning elections and enacting legislation. Al-Awlaki's TEENAGE SON was killed in a separate drone attack because hr had a similar name. Innocent people are being killed by drone attacks because they are near a suspected terrorist. The President thinks he can kill any American, anywhere any time by simply saying that he thought the guy was affiliated with a group with ties to al-Qaida. But, according to Ann, we should say it's ok because the Kardashian fans don't understand what that is all about.

Rest assured, Ann does not consider anything Barack Obama does to be "ok".

No, she just says the argument for the 5th Amendment is boring, so drop it. Is that better?

Republicans don't control the U.S. Senate and they don't have the presidency. Instead of wasting time and energy in doomed efforts to defeat President Obama's Cabinet nominees or sucking up to illegal aliens, why not focus on issues where Republicans can be off-the-charts popular while forcing Democrats into taking stupid positions?

After the slaughters at Virginia Tech, Aurora, Colo., Tucson, Ariz., and Newtown, Conn., every sentient person knows we need to do something about institutionalizing the mentally ill and -- at the very least -- keeping guns out of their hands.

That happens to be impossible right now....
