Pat Toomey is a Total POS

pat-toomey2Pat Toomey has just announced he wants to bring back his failed legislation which strips Americans of their gun rights (without due process of law, naturally). The bill, co sponsored by the Democrat from West (By God) Virginia, Joe Manchin, seeks an outright BAN on most private sales of firearms.

Toomey is a total piece of pigshit, but you would already know this if you were around and read the Blog’s coverage of the ’08 election.  The Toomey-led Club for Growth’s destructive effort to divide Conservatives turned me against those bastids forever.  Telling you “Told ya!” might not be enough.  Check it out for yourself.  Just type Toomey or Club for Growth in the search bar.  Some of my better writing, cough cough.

Long story short, Toomey succeeded, and the current resident of the White House won.

Now Toomey wants to help him out again.  I can’t think of anyone who might be happier about this bill than Bath House Barry.

Don’t doubt me, people.  Toomey is toxic.

Gingrich: “I can no longer endorse Gregg Harper”

Conservative Blogging Legend, Nuke Gingrich has concluded that 3-term Congressman, Gregg Harper no longer deserves the endorsement and support of common-sense conservative voters in the MS-3rd district.

“He hasn’t accomplished anything, he hasn’t done anything, and given the opportunity to make a principled stand, he caved faster than a spelunker on meth,” said Gingrich, amid fragrant clouds of Macanudo smoke at his southwest Mississippi compound.

“I should have recognized the bait and switch when Harper gained the support of the slimy Trent Lott.  I suppose I’m the victim of my own optimism.  But no more.  Now that Harper has shown himself to be an insider-Trent Lott Republican instead of a Common-Sense Conservative, I have decided that I can no longer  support him.”

gregg-harper-ms3Gingrich’s endorsement in the 2008 Republican Primary was seen by some as a pivotal moment for the Harper campaign, as polls which had been trending for his opponent, shifted dramatically and decisively in Harper’s favor.  He won going away.  It was an old fashioned whoopin’.

“I questioned Harper’s vote last week to end the battle against Obamacare, and politely asked for a response.  To date, Harper has refused to provide any answer at all, other than to send out a Press release, chock-full of fluffy piffle.”

Gingrich has provided the Blog with a copy of the note he sent to the Congressman in response to Harper’s “explanation” for the surrender vote, entitled “A Responsibility to Govern.”

October 17, 2013

Dear Congressman Harper:
 
Please tell me. 
 
Did you read the Bill before you voted for it? 
 
I understand it was an eleventh hour vote responding to a real or imagined crisis (this seems to have become the standard operating procedure, hasn’t it?).
 
Did you question the special $2.9 billion sweet deal for Kentucky?
 
Wouldn’t it have been appropriate to offer a clean, two-day CR to allow the Bill to be read by the Members, and posted to the internet as has been promised previously?
 
A Responsibility to Govern, indeed! 
 
Sincerely,
 
Nuke Gingrich

CharlierossInterestingly enough, Gingrich’s old nemesis, The Club for Growth is making a splashy re-entry into Mississippi politics for the first time since 2008.  The CfG has endorsed a Primary challenger to veteran senator Thad Cochran.  Losing Gingrich’s support may provide an opening for the other recent favorite of The Club for Growth, Charlie Ross.   “I may have to go reconsider my position on CfG,” Gingrich painfully noted.

CFG: Teh Kiss of Death

The Club for Growth PAC is back to their old tricks of trying to play coservative kingmaker, and in the process, splitting the center-right vote.

This time, it’s the special election in the NY 23rd.

Although Pat Toomey is gone, his failed policies remain intact.  Doug Hoffman is the “beneficiary” of the Club’s KOD.

Sucker.

disclaimer:  I don’t know anything about this race except der Klub is endorsing Hoffman.  Reason enough to oppose him, in my book.

Pat Toomey: Opportunist to the rescue

Pat Toomey hints he might mount a primary challenge to Arlen Specter in 2010.

I can’t wait.

So, why would this self-serving prick leave his cush meal ticket as Club for Growth president to run for the Senate?

I guess he’s just bored.

C’mon Pat.  The water’s fine.  Jump on in.

Accomplishments of Pat Toomey:  I can’t find any.  Even Wikipedia has nothing to brag about, except that he served 3 terms in the House and ran (and lost) against Specter in ’04.

You would probably have more luck in searching for French military victories

Attacking Sarah Palin: A familiar ring

The anonymous attacks on Gov. Sarah Palin have a familiar ring to me.

I was thinking about this after hearing Carl Cameron’s report on Fox, and after reading several other kneecap-recaps as reported in the blogosphere. I have no way of verifying my suspicions, so I haven’t commented on it. But, since the stealth attackers probably won’t be identified any time soon, I might as well go ahead and put forth my thoughts. If proven wrong, I’ll admit it — unlike those faceless cowards who started this.

I started noticing the similarities after reading and re-reading M.O.R.’s post-election rant. Following one of his links led me to the adjective “odious” which was used to describe religious conservatives. I couldn’t help but wonder about that, as I am one of those very same “odious” voters (who, incidentally supply about 40% of the Republican turnout). I wasn’t too terribly surprised by the animosity: it is really nothing new. Tolerating religious conservatives as a necessary part of the voting coalition is something that other conservatives have learned to become accustomed to, if not become altogether comfortable with, since Mr. Reagan cobbled together a winning strategy in 1980.

Neither are we altogether comfortable with them. But, there are enough interests in common to remain a viable political coalition.

A great example came in the last round of primaries, when moneyed interests within the Republican party decided to inject themselves into primary politics, not that there’s anything wrong with supporting one’s self interest. There isn’t. But, their tactics were, to use M.O.R.’s description, odious. Their preemtive and innuendo-laced attack destroyed the candidacy of the only religious conservative in the fold. It seems that this group would much prefer to continue to occupy a position of influence within a significantly smaller Republican coalition rather than have a religious conservative at the helm.

Interestingly enough, these people were completely silent in the general election; their money and advertising budgets unused. They did not get their candidate in the primaries, so they sat out the general election, only to emerge in the aftermath to attempt the same innuendo-based attacks on the next promising religious conservative. The preemptive attack on Sarah Palin is of the same tenor, tenacity, and calumny.

Sources in the McCain campaign? Bah, this smells like The Club for Growth.

The Daily Snort

Andy Roth, writing at CfG.org, laments the “Disappointing loss in MS-03” …

Charlie Ross lost to Gregg Harper in the GOP primary run-off election for Mississippi’s 3rd congressional district last night. The final tally was (with 99% reporting):
Harper — 29,307 votes — 57%
Ross — 22,139 votes — 43%

Disappointing loss?

Hardly.

I’d call this a good old-fashioned whoopin’.

Oh, wait. I already did call it that, didn’t I? Heh.

*snort*

Harper wins MS 3rd

Conservative blogging legend Nuke Gingrich officially calls it for Gregg Harper over Charlie Ross in the MS 3rd District.

“It was an old-fashioned whoopin’,” said Gingrich, relaxing with a Macanudo and a mint juelp, on the veranda from NG Election Central in southwest Mississippi. “Ross didn’t know what hit him. This is a blowout, and I, for one, couldn’t be happier for the people of the Third District.”

Gingrich endorsed Harper over the weekend, and momentum has been moving in Harper’s direction ever since. Some are calling Gingrich’s expose’ of the Club for Growth, and their attempt to influence Mississippi’s primaries a “watershed moment.” Gingrich, characteristically modest, said of the CfG — Ross connection, “Pat Toomey and his ilk are history. CfG’s march towards irrelevance continues unabated. These guys are just plain bad news. A bunch of rich Yankees who think they can come in here with their dollars and buy themselves a Congressman. Well, the people spoke loudly. Heh™”

Gregg Harper will face a Democrat opponent in the general election, but in the MS 3rd, who really cares? He won the real battle tonight, and that’s all that matters.

(from WLBT, with 80% 92% of the precincts reporting, it’s Harper 57-43 over Ross.)
