|"Fat, drunk, and stupid is no way to go through life, bitch." - Dean Wormer, Jr.|
Cold Fury pulls an excerpt from The Other McCain, both of them riffing off a closing quote from Vodkapundit himself, Stephen Green:
"It is not the case that America’s politics have become more divisive because the Republican Party has moved further right. Liberal pundits, commenting from within their ideological cocoons, habitually apply labels — “far right,” “extremist,” “white nationalist,” etc. — to depict the GOP as beholden to a dangerous fringe, but this is just paranoid propaganda. The typical Republican voter in 2018 is actually no more “extreme” than his father was in 1988. Nor is the policy agenda of the GOP now any more “far right” than it was in the presidency of Ronald Reagan. The cause of the increased partisan divide is not that the Republicans have moved right, but that Democrats have moved left.
Polls indicate that the Democrats’ advantage in the generic congressional ballot is holding firm around 7 or 8 points. Why?
Democrats are now the party of TrigglyPuff, of angry college girls driven to fits of insanity."Easy:
1) Polls are undiluted horsecrap, as our would-be Democrat overlords found out a couple of Novembers ago:
a) because their flawed mathematical models are skewed to lie to us on purpose
b) because everyone lies to pollsters on general principle in response to "a".
2) I haven't moved an inch from where I was politically in 1980. But what was center-right then is now mutant alien extreme Right in 2018. And, naturally, those to the right of me then are the "even more radical fringe" Right. This isn't because of the rise of the KKK, much as the would be klansmen would like to imagine.
It's because the Left has been running like a bat out of hell to their own left, to out-Mao Mao, and make Che and Stalin into boring conservative leftists by comparison.
They think if they pile enough Trigglypuffs on the political teeter-totter, we'll all have to slide to their end.
Well, they're correct.
What they don't realize is that when we do, it'll be to clean house with machetes and flamethrowers, and not to move in with them.
Bosnia, meet Rwanda.
When you force people to do things they don't want to do, they don't put on the BBQ guns and come over for a picnic.
They serve you your ass on a platter.
In a contest between the trailer park mafia and the fat-assed crazy catladies of a college town you'd do well to remember that NASCAR and bowling outdraws NPR and every Leftard cause ever invented for participation, by several orders of magnitude, every year since...ever.
So: Guess who's coming to dinner?
