Columnist Sees GOP in Drunken Stupor

Conservative columnist Matt Lewis doesn’t sound inebriated as he assesses the staggered state of the GOP.

“The Republican Party is sort of like a drunk that needs to hit rock bottom,” he tells me in a video interview.

A columnist for the Daily Caller and The Week, Lewis agrees with Joe Scarborough and Bill Kristol that there is a conservative “racket,” which includes “the same old guys” who keep getting hired as political consultants.

But there is also “a media racket where the people who scream the loudest get the most attention, get the most page views, but there are consequences to that. I think the Republican Party at the ballot box has paid a price for that.”

While Rush Limbaugh “did a lot of good” for the GOP over the years, says Lewis,“he basically made Sandra Fluke” by calling the law student a slut,“really played into the whole war-on-women narrative” pushed by the Democrats.

The Republicans, Lewis tells me,“are in an incredibly vulnerable position” because of the fiscal cliff negotiations,“really a no-win situation.” Either they agree to raise taxes on the wealthy and are viewed as “pledge-breakers,” or they block action and are viewed as “obstructionists.”

A majority of Americans will obey the new law and America will be a much safer place. The few holdouts will be dealt with accordingly. Most Americans are looking forward to being able to safely walk their streets again.

Liberals run wild in Michigan

Since it is liberals attacking conservatives, you can imagine the media coverage is a bit less comprehensive

i think they mean the MSM won't run with the edited video.....

On Twitter, Steven Crowder claimed that a protester threatened to kill him, which can be overheard off-camera in the video he posted. That video appears to be edited. Another video posted on YouTube by FTRMediaLive suggests that protesters were confronting a person possibly in possession of a firearm who may have been associated with the Americans For Prosperity. Electablog authored a post that also questions the sequence of events shown in the video.

Then you gun toters massacred all of the Native Americans, destroyed the environment, started countless wars and allowed America to become nearly totally dependent on the resources of foreign countries. Good job, gun nut idiots!

He didn't even show up for National Guard duty because he knew he'd flunk the drug test.

What challenge?

Steven Crowder was clearly goading the protesters__creating his own news so to speak. Fox News can't seem to get enough of the little dust up using is as a breaking news segue on it's daily shows.

No video no story IMO.

Another example of left wing silliness, failed logic and ignorance:
Obama 2016 wrote:
<quoted text>
(1)-Virginia Tech has always been a thug factory. Michael Vick and his hoodlum brother Marcus both went there.
(2)-The fact that Cho had a gun at all proves that they should be banned, not just regulated.
(3)-Nobody needs to carry a deadly concealed gun anywhere.
"So why did the killer pick the Cinemark theater? You might think that it was the one closest to the killer’s apartment. Or, that it was the one with the largest audience.

Yet, neither explanation is right. Instead, out of all the movie theaters within 20 minutes of his apartment showing the new Batman movie that night, it was the only one where guns were banned."

Jenna Bush Hager, daughter of former President George W. Bush, announced on Wednesday that she and husband Henry Hager are expecting their first child next spring.

"I'm nervous and so excited to say that Henry and I are pregnant—or I'm pregnant," Hager, a correspondent for NBC's "Today Show," announced on the program. "We're so excited. And I'm, you know, obviously nervous about it. I'm a first-time mom—but it's something I've always wanted."

Bush and former first lady Laura Bush called into the show to share their joy.

"I'm fired up! Looking forward to it. And I'm excited for Jenna and Henry," the former president said of his future first grandchild. "I said I can barely contain the news when I found out, so now I can tell all my buddies."

Finally some good news from the Bush camp.

I feel bad for that kid though, imagine having the albatross that is W. Bush hanging around your neck.

I would just go with Hager as a last name.

He must've done pretty good. He was a law professor for 12 years. What did Bush do before he became president? Let's see, he bought a pretty decent baseball team and drove it into the ground. I guess that was practice for later in life when he drove the country into the ground.
