I’m convinced that they’re still going to tell themselves that the problem is they’re not socially conservative enough. They’re still telling themselves that here in Virginia even after E.W Jackson got rejected the most. They want to ignore that by taking ultra socially conservative stances, they’re inviting people to vote against them too. And that’s what happened here in Virginia with Cuccinelli and Jackson.

I’m happy to see that they are incapable of hiding the true intent and purpose of their “platform” or whatever snappy patriotic drivel name they concoct for the latest attack on personal freedoms and rights. You can wrap a pile of shit up in the Stars and Stripes, call it Liberty and Freedom and sing God Bless America over it until you go hoarse. It’s still a bag of shit.

They might, but if they refuse to admit why they lost, its guaranteed to hurt them in the long run, rather than help them.

I was doing a happy dance last night when I learned that E.W. Jackson had lost. The man’s a total wacko. Blacks in VA went overwhelmingly for McAuliffe and other dems who weren’t black. It goes to show that what many on the right have been saying about us Black Americans voting for black candidates because they’re black was always a RW lie meant to racialize politics and explain why we don’t vote for their anti-American, POS politicians.

I knew that one was bs when in neighboring Maryland, Black voters favored Ben Cardin against Michael Steele seven years back. Of course, I am sure they’ll make some dumb crack about how the Democratic Party is the new plantation and Black Americans who vote Democratic are too stupid to know better. It’s like when Rand Paul spoke at Howard patronizing the hell out of the student body when he told them that they would be “shocked” that the early NAACP and civil rights leaders were Republicans. I am glad Jackson lost because he’s a lunatic and Northam lives in reality.

It will and by the time they realize that they will be fucked. They seem to think that youthful support of things like SSM are just “phases.” Shit some of my music taste as a preteen/young teen was a phase. Thinking my gay friends/relatives should have equality under the law is a principle.

The interesting thing is that there aren’t really significant policy differences between “moderate” Republicans and Tea Partiers. They all want to repeal Obamacare, oppose marriage equality, support slashing government spending even lower, and oppose doing anything about global warming or gun violence. The only significant differences are that Tea Partiers engage in stream of consciousness speaking and don’t worry about alienating people who aren’t white conservative Christians, since they aren’t “real Americans” anyway.

Yeah there was really no difference between Bolling and Cuccinelli ideologically here but the TP loved KC’s fire throwing style. You saw the same thing in that Alabama primary. I will grant you though that Christie did sign that ban on gay conversion therapy though. That’s not a compliment though. Anyone with a functioning brain should be able to veto that.

Exactly. Christie is pro-life and opposes marriage equality. The difference between him and a Tea Partier is that when it became obvious that he would lose on marriage equality, he dropped the appeal, whereas a Tea Partier would’ve pressed on to inevitable defeat.

More GOP “Big Tent”, brought to you by the Koch Brothers.

“GOP lawmakers in Ohio under fire for supporting Medicaid expansion”

MONCLOVA TOWNSHIP, Ohio — State Rep. Barbara Sears is the kind of Republican the party would want to highlight these days: a woman and former business owner, fluent in health insurance issues, who has managed to repeatedly win reelection in a district where Republicans and Democrats are almost evenly divided.

But this year, the popular legislator with a strong conservative voting record has found her photo on door hangers throughout her district, pictured as the conductor of the Obamacare train to disaster. Her image has been plastered next to President Obama’s on billboards. She has been targeted in a heavy splurge of negative talk radio ads.

It’s all part of a campaign against her by Americans for Prosperity, the free-market advocacy group backed by billionaires Charles and David Koch.
