Talking Points

Gillard has a bunch of 'em:

. . .See, there's a double standard here: anything the little racists say is cool. Jonah Goldberg and Rich Lowry can run the upscale race and reason rag known as the NRO and no one will ask if they go too far.

[. . .]

Every other day on the Daily Show, Jon Stewart makes a joke about how inept the Dems are. We need to cut that shit out as well. When the GOP was fucking up, no one made jokes about it. We need to start defending how the Dems are seen. The days of being a patsy are over. We need to hammer people when they say that crap. You are as you are seen. If you see patsies, that's what you are. You think Harry Reid is someone's patsy?

[. . .]

It's time to express exactly how angry we are. No more Mr. Nice Guy with people who want to harm us. If Beinart wants to be a PNAC butt boy, fine, but he's no liberal.

It's time to clean out the nest of Vichy Dems and those useless fucking liberals who won't fight. The too PC to breathe crowd. The colonic and vegan dog crowd. Those people can join the circle jerk at the Greens and have endless meetings about meetings.

[. . .]

Funny, while Bush is dismantling social security, where have the Greens and Nader been? Holding their dicks? Feeding vegan dog chow to their starving pups? Exactly why haven't they been eager to join the fight? They talk a good game, but when a real fight is here, one which can't be lost, they have nothing to say. They're as helpful as the dishonest and dogmatic PETA. Anyone who says meat is murder is a cretin destined to lose anyone in their audience past the age of 21.

[. . .]


Time for the Dems who have their faces on the tube to start picking this up. Time we kicked Lieberman and his type out on their asses. And it's time we put the screws to our so called 'allies'. We'll come back, and if the Greens want us to include them when the paradigm shifts, they'd better cover our backs now. Let's get with it and let the congressweasels know where we stand.

Seems like now's the time to jump ugly on the wind machine.

From Ol' Yella:

The Manchester Guardian calls it like they see it....

Headline: "Fake reporter unmasked at White House "

While the US media struggle to find a way to spin this so it doesn't look like a fake reporter being unmasked at the White House, it's starting to appear that Karl Rove didn't just get caught with his pants down on this one. More like his trousers were hanging on a nail in another room somewhere.

When the only defense of "Jeff Gannon" that I have seen is "You poopy-pants liberals are MEAN!" I start to think that the Republican Noise Machine is stuck sitting by their fax machines waiting for orders. [my emphasis]



The time to hit the enemy is when they're disorganized before they can regroup.

The Poor Man has more on this topic. It's getting very strange in the blogosphere. I cannot for the life of me figure out why the right is so angry when they just won the whole thing.

Unless, of course it is really as Lincoln said:

"...what will convince them? This, and this only: cease to call slavery wrong, and join them in calling it right. And this must be done thoroughly - done in acts as well as in words. Silence will not be tolerated - we must place ourselves avowedly with them."


It's not enough that they own the entire political landscape. Apparently, their frustration that we refuse to agree with them is so strong that they are having some sort of emotional collapse. We must place ourselves avowedly with them.

Well, people in hell want ice water, too. It's not going to happen.


Update: See The Forest has some thoughts on this too.


Go follow the links. We're getting into their heads. While my experience with psyops is limited and 25 years old, that old squid CAFKIA at Meanderthal might be able to come up with some strategies to use this to our advantage. Either that or he'll tell me I'm barking up the wrong tree.
