Sadly, No! has some funÂ observing the meltdown:
Remember those heady days after the 2004 presidential elections when liberals were chided for being coastal elites who were being punished by the electorate for mocking the heartland and its treasured traditional values? Remember when those folksy Christian Midwesterners were endlessly praised for their quiet resolve to support their godly President Bush and reject the sissy-assed negativism of the traitorous liberal establishment?
Pass the popcorn.
ps – Roger Ailes has some great snippets from some the elitists at The Corner.
pss – Dowdy Art Downs gets in on the act:
His twice-born, double-dipped hard-shell piety might appeal to the snake handlers and Biblical literalists but it could turn off a lot of South Park Republicans.
So it’s alright if the Jethros are all “gunned-up and ready to roll” for anÂ IvyÂ League Republican like George W but once they nominateÂ a candidateÂ from their own ranks it’s time to rein them in.Â Republicans, it’s time toÂ accept your base.
