Rip its heart out

Swank Pirates Only!
I've received reports from a spy in Boca Grande, FL and the short of it is:
Bushie no like Trump!
at the Gasparilla Inn & Club they like they're pirates romanticized and long dead. When the real thing comes along and raids the clubhouse making fun of the members and taking measurements for his planned renovations they don't like it at all - not one bit. Watching the "conservative" pundits freak out over Trump has been great for the KOTCB Blog and the vitriol has increased day by day, month by month as NH primary day approaches (T-minus 31, 30,...) and now Michael Gerson, W's speechwriter and assistant for policy and strategic planning, has pulled out the gun from his desk drawer.
American political parties are durable constructions. But they have been broken before by powerful, roiling issues such as immigration and racial prejudice. Many Republicans could not vote for Trump but would have a horribly difficult time voting for Clinton. The humane values of Republicanism would need to find a temporary home, which would necessitate the creation of a third party. This might help elect Clinton, but it would preserve something of conservatism, held in trust, in the hope of better days.
Great idea Michael, let's put all that Republicanism in a Trust Fund and make sure the ingrate inheritors of Lincoln's bloody sacrifice don't squander it (as though it wasn't squandered 80 years ago) and let responsible techno-DC think tank nerds dole it out as necessary to The States groveling subjects. What shall we call this new Trust, er, Party? The Constitutional Union Party has I nice, traditional sentiment - very Burkian - though I'm not sure Lincoln would approve. Go ahead and use it if you like.

The heart of the GOP has already been ripped out and is being transplanted to the corner of 57th St. and 5th Ave. It had to be done because the thumper stopped beating in 2008 and repeated attempts to revive the patient have failed - prognosis is horrible, but we've got to try something, anything to give it life.
Ripping the heart out of the GOP - boo-hoo, boo-hoo

The Real Story with Gretchen Carlson

She was "sexy", but "too much hard work." I'm a regular Fox & Friends viewer (mostly in protest of the other insipid morning programs like Today and Good Morning America) so over the years I've gotten to know Gretchen Carlson pretty well. Stuck between Steve and Brian she always seemed a prudish scold with an irritating, self-righteous demeanor that I simply put up with because I figured some people in the Fox audience actually liked her persona. It was obvious that Steve and Brian did not, but they were stuck with her like so many talking heads and had to make the best of it - which they did. Besides, she was no worse than any of the other women on morning show TV - I mean, you're only going to find a certain kind of person to do this kind of work and that kind of person is the Gretchen Carlson kind. Then, one day, she was gone and replaced by Elisabeth Hasselbeck and the F&F ratings began to climb, and climb and climb - in two months view

No Step On Snek

On The 2020 Election: In an elemental way We the People of the United States lost because Trump, and the MAGA movement he champions, forced the Deep State/Administrative State/New World Order (whatever you want to call it) and its enablers in Corporate America - Finance/FakeNews/Big Tech - to declare their sovereignty and steal our election in the most obvious way possible. The brazenness and " in yo face " shamelessness of the crime is a big part of its effectiveness and loudly proclaims an intent to demoralize and defeat the America First ideology which actually won the highest number of votes in this nation's history. It wasn't even close and that was made clear when key cities in 5 or 6 swing states declared they would pause (stop) counting(?!) votes until all the rural districts had submitted results allowing the big city machines to manufacture the ballots required to put Jo(((k)))e Biden in the lead. NPC's and Normies don't get too critical of process a

I've Got You Dumb Motherfuckers Eating Right Out Of My Hand

The branches of government In 2011 John Lasseter wrote an opinion piece for The Onion which exposed Pixar's production strategy and shocking success in the marketplace : "Yes, after the success of our first few movies we had a hunch you'd continue to enjoy the wonderfully designed animation and our smart, lyrical writing, but I didn't think we'd create a horde of drooling morons ready to drop everything just to watch a fucking rat cook dinner." This observation was in reference to a Pixar film titled "Ratatouille" about a rat who dreams of becoming a French chef which, to my lights, created one of the most unappetizing and subversive stories ever told. The idea of rats running roughshod in a Michelin-starred restaurant is bad enough but when the proposition that "Anyone can cook" is taken to its evil and impossible extreme I must object for France and humanity. Using that movie and others as an example Lasseter makes the point that his
