Happy Birthday F A Hayek!.

Another one for the Tea Party.

Even in defeat, Lugar — attacking Mourdock’s “partisan mindset” — sounds as if he believes that Senate seat belongs to him.
Tonight he was reminded that it doesn’t. The accolades rolling in from Kerry and President Obama (whose press shop released a statement on Lugar’s “retirement) are an example of why Republicans voted against him. The quote of the night belongs to Hoosier conservative activist Greg Fettig: “The message to the establishment is, ‘You’re our servants. We’re the masters. Do what you’re supposed to do, adhere to the Constitution or we’ll fire you.’”

The New Commmunism: Resurrecting the Utopian Delusion.

I have no idea what drives these people, surely everyone knows it doesn’t bloody well work! OK, I understand that the lefties and Obama want to bring down the US because they don’t like it but don’t they have an inkling that they’ll finish up on the pointy end of the totalitairan’s spear. Are they really that stupid? Beats me.

    Milbank wrote about Mourdock & Lugar, and got it completely wrong:
    http://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/ads-of-mass-destruction/2012/05/04/gIQARLNT1T_story.html

    He called Mourdock supporters “unpatriotic”. Milbank thought that it was important to choose “country over party” when choosing between two people who are members of the same party.
    Milbank seemed to believe that Lugar would lose the Indiana nomination because the Tea Party is pro-nuclear proliferation. Milbank also believes that having an ACU rating of 77% made Lugar conservative rather than moderate (McCain’s ACU rating is in the low 80′s).
    If you look at what the Indiana Tea Party’s complaints about Lugar were, it wasn’t that Lugar was anti-nuclear-war. The complaints were that Lugar had become out of touch with Indiana voters and that Lugar worked with Obama to implement a foreign policy that was not conservative.

    Hilarious! From Mickey Kaus, Via Ed Driscoll: “Sens. Hatch, Lugar and Snowe haven’t been hit too hard by tea-party, yet”

    http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/the-fix/post/tea-party-serves-up-some-weak-senate-challenges/2011/08/05/gIQAcXKQbJ_blog.html

    Note the tag in the link: “tea-party-serves-up-some-weak-senate-challenges”
    Snowe chose not to run rather than face a Tea-Party challenge.
    Lugar got the boot from the Tea Party.
    Hatch is in a tough contest with a Tea-Party challenge (though he’s likely to survive).
    This doesn’t mean that the more conservative GOP candidates in Maine and Indiana will win in November, but it does mean that the WaPo is unreliable in its political coverage. It cannot properly evaluate any political movement that is not DC-centric.

    Tony, re the New Communism – Orwell said it best “One has to belong to the intelligentsia to believe things like that: no ordinary man could be such a fool.” (from his essay – Notes on Nationalism)

      But that doesn’t explain the simple stupidity of the left. You’d have to walk around with your eyes, ears and mind shut tight for your whole life, how do they manage that tric?
