…and it smells like the decaying carcass of irrelevant, corrupt elitism.
Dear Readers: I have a compendium of interesting links and remarks, the theme being the tired tricks that are opponents are using (or are planning for) to stave-off total defeat in the November 2nd election. The first item is from WC Varones, who notes that someone was searching for “Fired Up Democrats” on Goggle:
The search lead them here: Who says Democrats aren’t fired up for November?. So, you can well imagine the total surprise when they read my quote from W.C.’s article:
The establishment pundits say that the Democratic base is NOT enthusiastic about November. I say that they are wrong — in part. A good many Democrats are chomping at the bit to vote this November. These Dems WILL be voting for the COUNTRY CLASS CANDIDATE. I know, as I met several of them at the Sacramento Tea Party.
Speaking of Democrats, Dawn Wildman (chief coordinator of the Southern California Tax Revolt Coalition and a leading light of Tea Party Patriots) was concerned about the Tea Party being targeted for smears by the Obama Administration and leftists activists: Obama Aides Weigh Bid to Tie the G.O.P. to the Tea Party. As the Democratic co-founder of our local Tea Party group, I reminded her that this was a repeat of the tactic used during Townhall Summer — when, in addition to being GOP astroturf, we were also well-dressed, fascist, racist mobsters.
While I am no witch, it does not require extraordinary powers of prognostication to see that the results of Nov, 2nd will be UNPRECEDENTED!. It looks like states are peeling away from the hard-left Democratic fold — Pennsylvania GOP looks to make big gains and Wisconsin is following suit.Die-hard Obama supporters no longer have the energy to defend the Once, whereas Tea Party activists are increasingly motivated to affect real — and Constitutional — change. There are more reports about International Tea Party activities — including one in Australia, where I am headed next year.
Speaking of decaying elitism, I must go on a bit of a rant. I love MAD MEN, but it seems like its lead actor doesn’t much care for Tea Party types: Jon Hamm: Tea Party Has Racist ‘Secret Agenda’ . I am curious Jon, as I have been involved in Tea Party activism for nearly 2 years and the only thing close to a “Hidden Agenda” we have is figuring out when the next Beer Summit is, what exactly are our secret plans are? Inquiring minds want to know!
As a Flaming Capitalist, I so long for a day when an actor decides it would be in his/her financial best interest to NOT INSULT POTENTIAL CUSTOMERS! Julia Robert’s latest movie was a deluxe bomb, which I think can be partly attributed to her insulting a not insignificant number of potential movie-goers. Mad Men producers should really review the Big Hollywood comment section — they will be unhappy to discover Hamm just lost them a few viewers for no good reason.
How will I console myself? By noting that Mad Men is an ensemble cast, and I have to think most of them aren’t complete economic fools. I took a “Mad Men” quiz on Facebook, to discover my MM character was Betty Draper — who kicked DD to the curb. Finally, I will retaliate by usurping the Mad Men brand for Tea Party purposes. Check my MAD MEN PASSION INDEX for the November ballot!
Hey, Jon! Get a look at the next year’s House Majority Leader!!!!!
I would like to remind all my Tea Party friends we have an exciting event planned for 10-10-10 — and if you are like me, and watch Mad Men, perhaps some of your signs can utilize some of the other iconic imagery as well. That should underscore how serious we citizens take our Constitutionally-oriented activism, which will not be undermined by decaying Hollywood elitism either.
