VA’s “conservative” Governor biggest tax raiser in VA history; WaPo “conservative” Jen Rubin applauds
— Meaning, you know: fringe extremists who fetishize the Constitution and who aren’t open to common-sense reforms to hidebound old texts written by misogynistic racists who were banging their slaves. Or who resist an exciting, hip new rebranding to a moribund anti-government image, one that simply doesn’t resonate with those who have learned to game the system.
Because the best Republicans — those who are the harbingers of the next great GOP resurgence — are those who are willing to act like leftwing Democrats. Just ask Presidents Dole, McCain, and Romney!
In the minds of the great political strategists like Jen Rubin — whose Romney push was her last great contribution to the GOP’s resurrection — surrender is victory. A willingness to repudiate every principle in order to “get things done” is bravery. And having an R in front of one’s name — even if it means adopting the policies and governing strategies of Democrats — is more important than promoting conservative principles, because at the end of the day, its all about whose party gets to control the trough and divvy out the spoils.
Good lord. I can’t get an advertiser or a link from a high profile “conservative” site here anymore, yet this dangerous Potemkin GOP bint — a not-too-distant Gore devotee — represents the views of “the right” in the WaPo?
Tell me that’s not by design. That this all isn’t by design.
God help us.
