Precious Love... I am not sure Rahm "Gollum" Em can love. it is not part of his new job description.
He's the gatekeeper, and does not have time for silly stuff like love.

Keith read your blog a bit earlier this afternoon and he cracked up over some things on that list of things to do at the mall.

That's funny but not as funny as Fire Marshall Bill disguised as Nancy Pelosi.

I have no idea what this is all about, because I hate that little creature from whatever that movie was, and now I'm going to have nightmares

R said...

That's funny. I inspired you, I think.

I answered your question (What's to become of the Republican Party, how do we save it?) in my blog, but I'm posting it here, too:


Uncle Joe, That's a toughie.

I know what will work, but it's currently hotly debated inside the party. The problem is that many pundits are telling the conservatives that they need to loosen up a little - adapt to the youth of America. There are some reasons why this would be the wrong approach:

1. Youth matures. Eventually they will see the lack of wisdom in the Democratic party, and then where will they turn? Will the Republican party become a party governed by the whim of the youth of America? Will they follow along as they mature? What happens when new youth culture emerges? Youth is slippery, and constantly changing. As Winston Churchill once said,

"If you're not a liberal when you're 20, you have no heart. If you're not a conservative when you're 40, you have no head."

2. If the Republicans become more liberal, what is the difference between them and the Democrats? And, may I add, that we have that already in a breed called the neocon. And they held the White House for 8 years. And created plenty of death and destruction.

3. There are many people who are still Reaganites, both Democrat and Republican. No one is speaking for them. This is why there have been so many break-offs from the Republican party, and every break-off is consistently more conservative than the current Republican platform. There is a reason for this.

SO: The best and most obvious answer is to throw out the neocons and return to our conservative roots. This does NOT mean that we need to court religious conservatives, but we need to factor them in again. It doesn't have to be a religious organization, just a conservative one again. In the Reagan years, it was famous for looking out for the little guy. It appealed to blue collar workers. It eschewed big government and big business, and encourages small business and individuals. That's where it needs to be once more.

Me thinks the Chicago connection is the ring that binds here.

I think if we were to throw the ring in the fire the inscription would say... "I know something about the dude so he owes me a position of prominence."

If I disappear, please use this comment as evidence that I was right and had to be 'taken care of'. Not that these are the Clintons or anything like that...

I get snarky late at night.
