What it Means


I know hardcore Republicans are having a hard time dealing with the election last night that swept the Democrats into power, but Michelle Malkin seems to have lost hold on reality.
“The GOP lost. Conservatism prevailed. "San Francisco values" may control the gavels in Congress, but they do not control America.”

San Francisco values? She seems to have failed to mention that far more moderate Democrats took power yesterday than those with so called “San Francisco values” (whatever that means). A number of folks like Webb are in fact Republicans who have become disillusioned with the religious fanaticism and spinsters that have sadly controlled the party for the last 6 years.

There is a lesson in this for Republicans (and for Democrats as well for that matter). That lesson is that blind allegiance to a cause or a leader will undoubtedly end up unpopular with the American populace.

Update:

Some right-wing Republicans are blaming Malkin and folks like her who for the loss last night. “Deport all Leftists” (charming name, no?) states:
Mrs. Malkin,

You are clueless. The evidence of your colossal mistake is staring you in the face and you still don't get it.

Congress is in the Democrat's hands. No border enforcement. No tax cuts. No War on Terror. No conservatism. No hope.

Before 1994, the Republican Party had not held the majority for forty years. And now we might not hold it again for another forty. The Republican Revolution is dead.

And why? Because the President's plan to secure the border is in the wrong order. He wants to create a guest worker program increasing the number of legal residents so that our full employment economy doesn't tank when the enforcement begins. But even if he's wrong, you threw away a fucking majority in congress because of semantics.

I take back everything positive I ever had to say about you.

On behalf of every conservative who now has to live in Nancy Pelosi's America

F*ck

You

Am I imagining something Roland or are neocons a tad miffed over what has just gone down??

Yep, the neo-cons seem to be done for the time being. I fear that any form of international involvement is also going to take a back seat at this point. I think Americans have “international fatigue”, and that could have consequences down the line considering the state of our affairs with Iran and North Korea.

But I must say, as a moderate, I can’t be happier to see those on the far right take a hit and squirm in their seats.
