Raining on the Parade

I don’t want to rain on anybody’s parade, but when the dust settles, I think the Republicans are going to have a two-pronged response to this week’s amazing events, one that will allow them to have their cake and eat it too.

To appeal to primary voters, they’ll call for the impeachment of Roberts and Kennedy and for the election of a truly conservative president who will nominate nine more Scalias. Supporting a constitutional amendment defining marriage as between one man and one woman at a time and equating publicly-mandated and partially-subsidized insurance with tyranny will be as important a litmus test for their national candidates as being pro-life and pro-gun.

To appeal to white, socially-conservative Democrats in the general election, they’ll argue that a conservative Supreme Court isn’t such a terrible thing, that when it comes to keeping millions insured, or being on the right side of history vis-a-vis gays and ex-slaves, even a far-right court will rise to the occasion.

It’s important to remember that the people that own them are the primary voters (and contributors).

  1. Well I hope they do try to impeach Roberts and Kennedy. It will fail and make them look like idiots. I think instead they will try to play the religious objection angle for all it is worth. You can see signs of that already in Texas and other states. I foresee having to go back to court to force Hate States to comply with the ruling.

    Ultimately this will be remembered as a week that changed America for the better.

  2. My question is “who’s pulling who’s strings” After PNAC pulled Georges i.e. One of their main goals was to take out Saddam, hence the b/s regarding chemical weapons etc etc “the big on purpose lie” and now look at what we have, absolute mayhem.
    Being ex Army I get very emotional when I see my brothers and sisters getting around on crutches and in wheelchairs, or in coffins. What did Dicks old company (Halliburton) make on that deal, over 300 billion?? What was the main goal? What country benefited the most from the lie?
    I don’t think we should be listening to the puppets I would rather hear what the puppeteers have to say
