Attack of the Zombie Republicans

img-hp-main---batchelor-republican-zombies-01_233036905191The GOP’s living dead won’t stop haunting their party, says lifelong Republican John Batchelor. Now Rush, Newt, and Dick are doing what zombies do best: laying waste to everyone’s brains.

Woo Hoo, if you think Democrats are critical of these guys, think again. We could take lessons from this guy!  His op-ed piece is a must read.

  1. Yes, a wonderful read. The generalissimo and the demagogue, I’m still laughing.

  2. Hi Mike and welcome to Prairie P&Ps. I’ll take a look at your blog later this morning.

    Yes, this piece had descriptive words I hadn’t seen used for people.

    “halitosis of self-righteousness”

    I was tickled enough that my laughing and snorting woke sleeping hubby. 😉

  3. Great find fnord! You always find the good stuff, whilst I’m off BS’ing with obscure bloggers.
    You need some help. I’ll go find some….

    And why do I end everything with 4 dots….?

    I had to pop off at TBTSNBN earlier, and lo and behold, it sounded pretty much dead on to what John Batchelor wrote, only he writes so much better.

    The Rush “flatulance in broadcasting” Limbaughs, the Bill “it ain’t my fault” O’Reillys, the Ann “the only good Democrat is a dead Democrat” Coulters, and the rest of their ilk, are doing the Republican Party a serious disservice. The Republican party seems to be a party that wants to eliminate Jews, gays, Mexican Americans, Muslims, moderates and anybody else who disagree with their narrow field of vision from party membership.

    That pretty much leaves old white folk, and seeing as their becoming a minority in many parts of the country, the Republicans resources are limited. D*e*a*t*h throws anyone?

    But, it seems for now, the few remaining Republicans seem content on enforcing that narrow field version of party membership.

    Hey, I believe in their freedom to cut their noses off to spite their faces. And they all do it so well, don’t they?

    Moran, Tiahrt poll almost equally

    Jerry Moran and Todd Tiahrt are even in the race for the Republican nomination to fill Sen. Sam Brownback’s open Senate seat, according to a new poll.

    The KWCH 12 Eyewitness News scientific survey was conducted June 12 to 14.

    Asked who they would vote for if they were to vote today, 40 percent of Kansans polled said they would vote for Moran and 38 percent said they would vote for Tiahrt.

    Another 22 percent said they were undecided. The election is more than a year away.

    The poll has a margin of error of plus or minus 4.7 percentage points.

    Not surprisingly, Moran, 55, who has represented western Kansas in Congress since 1997, had the strongest support in western Kansas, where 61 percent of respondents supported him compared with 25 percent for Tiahrt.

    Tiahrt, 58, of Goddard, who was elected to Congress in 1994, did the best in southeast Kansas, where he was favored by 58 percent of those polled compared with 30 percent who favored Moran.

    Nearly a third of the voters in northeast Kansas said they were undecided.

    SurveyUSA, which conducted the poll for KWCH, interviewed 1,500 Kansans — 1,295 of whom are registered voters — from June 12 to 14. SurveyUSA determined 453 of the people who were registered voters were likely to vote in the August 2010 Republican primary.

    I found this late last night on the WE site. Isn’t it interesting how Tiarht is not the landslide frontrunner that he probably thought he would be? There was a person’s comment to the article saying he was going to change his registration so he could vote against Tiarhrt but no way would he vote for either one in the general election.

    Now why does that tactic sound so familiar?

    • I would like to see figures on how many the Republican Party in Kansas adds to their rolls over the next few months. Don’t you know the wingnuts will ignore reality and use this as absolute proof their party is gaining strength.

      They won’t recognize the switchers who want to be part of electing the next Senator from Kansas. And, they won’t recognize that even if the Republicans in Kansas grew it still means all six electoral votes will be cast for whoever has the little “R” after their name. No more, no less, no matter what.

      And that’s probably true in the few states like Kansas who are part of the small region where the Republican Party has majorities. Those states electoral votes still add up to an inadequate number to win at the national level.

    This race is a year off! Gonna get interesting, don’t you think!?

    And it looks like Brownback for Governor of Kansas is more probable than not. That’s some scary stuff — with the wingnuts in the Kansas House and Senate to be complicit with this wacko nutjob, what will it mean to Kansas?

    I saw where Thornburgh bowed out of the Governor race – so I guess we are stuck with Brownback.

    I was hoping to get to vote against Tiarht AND Brownback as a RINO.

    fnord – maybe we should get some bumper stickers made up for RINOs out to get rid of Tiarht? We need to spread the word.

  9. I’ve read several places where Brownback’s deep pockets (he married into money) are intimidating. Gives new emphasis to the wise old saying, “Money is the root of all evil.”

  10. On the Tiahrt / Moran primary race, I’m interested to see what happens in a few months. It’s still far off. They’re both up for reelection for their House seats, right? And both have decided not to run for reelection but pursue the Senate seat Bownback is vacating. So, if the polling doesn’t stay close there’s no dropping out and staying with the cushy House job. One of them is going to be looking for a job. I’ll do anything I can to help that one be Tiahrt!
