Its always time to talk politics here at Crown on the Rocks. So I went out and found some light reading.
First an article by Byron York about the coming divide in the Democratic party. The thing that is interesting to me is that if far left loons, are there any other kind, keep pushing moderate/conservative Dems out, where will they go? Don't buy into the notion being presented by the MSM about a divide in the Republican Party. GWB took hold of the party when he was in office. He ran on the right and governed in the middle just like his dad. He was better at it than his father so he was able to stay for two terms, but lets not call him a conservative. I never have and never will. He did manage to keep the conservatives from power within the party and that's where the division came from. Now that he is back in Crawford enjoying his retirement, the moderate establishment is being taken to task for their poorly ran campaigns of 2008.
Make no mistakes, conservative Republicans will be back in force in '10. And let this be a word to the wise, if you run as a conservative, you'd better damn sure vote as one. Last night's elections show that this country is already weary of Barry. If he continues down this communist/socialist path, his demise is all but ensured. The damage he can do along the way though will be irreparable. We must hope that health care and cap and trade both go down in flames.
At The Daily Beast there is a nice article by Matt Latimer, a former speech writer for GWB and D. Rumsfeld. It's about how Rush and the others didn't have the ear of the last administration as much as people like to believe. Maybe if they had, we'd be in better shape.
Here's an article about tipping that is pretty good. Goes along with the scene from Reservoir Dogs (I didn't want to post the scene up directly so I just gave the link. Rated "R" for strong language and sexual content but I like how Tarantino writes.
