The original plan was to make today an open thread because yours truly was getting pretty tired of all the crap. It is so rare that there is anything for us to truly feel good about I couldn’t pass the opportunity up. The full effect of what happened last night has not been fully manifested yet. I feel a pretty good rant coming on,so grab a refreshment and get comfortable.

For the last six long,agonizing years we have been forced to stand by helplessly while a deranged Kenyan dickweed has run roughshod over the legislative and judicial branches of the government. We keep waiting,in vain,for the republican party to show some political courage and stand up to him. They stand there with their thumbs hooked in their vest pockets and huff that they’ll have to pass a resolution if he keeps breaking the law. Then they turn around and tell the base “we will destroy you!”

They had a suspicion that the base wasn’t happy but they figured we were as ignorant and unprincipled as those on the liberal plantation. We’d still vote for whoever the party put up. Guess again. They don’t understand if it takes years to establish a party loyal to our founding principles then so be it.


Megyn Kelly and Sean Hannity were,as expected,all over this last night. Among other guests,Megyn had Carl Cameron and Brit Hume. I like both of them,but they seem to have spent too long in DC. Cameron posits that Brat won because it was raining yesterday. Fox News Channel’s Washington-based chief political correspondent Carl Cameron blamed the rain for Eric Cantor’s loss to Dave Brat.

“It’s worth noting that the weather was foul here yesterday and today as well. So some of it may have been nature helping out David Brat.”

What he didn’t appreciate was that this was what I call a “broken glass” election. That’s one where you would crawl on your hands and knees over broken glass to get to the voting booth.

Brit Hume insisted that without ‘immigration reform’ to tout that the republicans have no chance of winning the White House in 2016. He is loathe to call it amnesty but that is precisely what it is. The so-called “pathway to citizenship” is as phony as Obama’s birth certificate. These illegals have no desire to become citizens. They want the jobs,the free housing,medical,food stamps and welfare. If Brit ever sojourned near a Latin neighborhood he’d see the sign in every storefront window announcing wire service to Mexico.

The FOX News hosts are fuming over Dave Bratt’s upset tonight over House Majority Leader Eric Cantor. Brit Hume led the charge tonight:

“The margin is amazing… The conventional wisdom on this Megyn is already begun to form. It goes this way. That this is bad news long term for the Republicans and great news for Democrats. It is argued by some that immigration reform now will never pass with Republicans who were very much chastened by what happened to Eric Cantor.”


Even Blabbermouth put down her mayonnaise to chime in:

The left had to chirp about Linda Grahamnesty winning his primary last night and bragged about he won because he supports amnesty. Truth is,he ran against 6 candidates. The Tea Party in South Carolina is very territorial and the four could not agree on one candidate to endorse so they split the vote. Grahamnesty also actively solicited democrats to cross over and vote for him. About 20% of his total was from democrat switchovers who will now switch back. Truth is, Linda is just damn lucky. In 2010 the dems ran a convicted drug dealer against him and now he managed to avoid a runoff thanks to democrat shenanigans.

However,there was another primary in the Palmetto State yesterday. Tim Scott… you know,the one the NAALCP accused of being a puppet with the racist white slavemasters pulling his strings? Yeah,that one. He got 90% of the vote in his primary. He garnered more than 60,000 more votes than McCain’s butt boy.



The thing that terrifies me now is what will happen between November and January. If the democrats do,indeed,lose their majority in the Senate expect them to try to shove some parting gifts through before they go to work as lobbyists. This is what happened here in Illinois. On the very last day of the lame duck the dems passed a 67% income tax increase. They got no republican votes. The single vote it passed by was bought from an outgoing dem who got a cushy advisory job making mid-six figures to do basically nothing. That’s how they do it here in the land of the undead voter.

    I don’t know where Carl Cameron was, but there was not a drop of rain, or even a cloud in Richmond. I know. I stood in 90 plus degree heat at the polls for hours!

      Voter turnout was 28% HIGHER for this midterm primary than it was for the presidential year primary of 2012. Turnout was up fairly uniformly across the district, including in Cantor’s affluent home county which he lost. But it was up by LESS in the Democrat neighborhoods than in the REPUBLICAN neighborhoods. I think Pete nailed it with his “broken glass” analogy.

    Flashback: Republican Cantor Headlines Anti-Tea Party Conference Sponsored by George Soros & Unions
    This was previously posted on April 9, 2014–
    Eric Cantor ought to have some free time in a few months to think about this.

    Brent Bozell sent this scathing letter to Mr. Cantor in April.He might have rethink it if he’d only known.But he didn’t….too bad.

      Methinks if you spend too much time inside the Beltway, you start thinking the way those people view the world actually matters.

    Hillary’s book is being absolutely trashed on
    The review summaries are relentless enough. “Pure Crap from an egomaniacal opportunist,” “Should be under fiction,” “Vomit, vomit. Pure vomit.” But then comes the content.

    “It is a typical book cover, pages and page numbers. Only this one will have special value at next Christmas[‘] White Elephant gift exchange,” one review reads.

    “The book is a newsless snore, written so carefully not to offend that it will fuel the notion that politics infuses every part of her life,” goes another, which not-so-coincidentally is exactly what POLITICO’s Mike Allen wrote in a space much more reputable than an comment section.

      “Politics infuses every part of her life” … this is probably true. You know how some moms put earphones on their pregnant bellies and play Mozart or somethign? I bet poor Chelsea was listening to recordings of Democrat speeches.

      “The problem with Hillary Clinton that you see in this is her sort of intrinsic insincerity. She’s continually crafting what she says. Crafting what her position is going to be. Crafting her conduct to meet a certain perception. And when you do that day in and day out either on a book tour or on a campaign trail or anywhere in public office, you trip up because you can’t remember the last confection, the last creation of yourself that you put together.” – Charles Krauthammer on “Special Report w/Bret Baier”

    It ends with someone talking about a “Tea Party victory.” Um. Not really, from what I read.

    Chrissy: Voter turnout was 28% HIGHER

    Don’t cloud the narrative with facts! It was the rain, the Dukes of Hazard, hanging chads, a nineteen-minute gap, and BUUUUSSSSHHH! Could not be… voters.
