Patterico's Pontifications


Baseless Charge of Racism Raised Against Republican Candidate By . . . Republican Establishment

Filed under: General — Patterico @ 4:53 pm


I understand that the NRSC is an incumbent-protection club. That’s basically its job. But to introduce baseless charges of neo-Confederate racism in a GOP primary is beyond inept. Honestly, if you can’t find a real, instead of imagined, problem with a primary challenger then tout the virtues of your guy. And if your guy doesn’t have any virtues to tout that would be better than a baseless charge of neo-Confederate racism, then maybe just keep your mouth shut.

Good grief. You want party unity, don’t falsely tar fellow Republicans, and their grassroots supporters, as racists. Are you trying to get people to stay home in November?

Apparently the Republican establishment is now the zombie.

  2. I call it Weigeling, recall how one crazy fellow, Robertson, was portrayed as the face of the Tea Party,

  3. More to the point, any “Republican” official who uses Talking Points Memo or any other blatantly lefty source as grounds for attacking a Republican candidate should be unemployed and blacklisted before the echo of the “Enter” key sending the message from his keyboard/cellphone fades away. Seriously–this guy needs to be utterly obliterated as a warning to others who pass on enemy propaganda without remorse.

  5. “Are you trying to get people to stay home in November?”

    It is well established that this very result was a central strategy of the Ogabe re-election effort in 2012.

    The Borg concentrated on Absentee and Early Voting efforts, and directing the narrative. Believing that such subterfuge is beyond the ken of the Party of Schtoopid is one thing, believing that they’d be above such a tack is either dishonest or deluded.

    Depressing the vote among conservatives can be construed as in their interest.

  6. Well we won’t revisit ‘Macho Grande’ which we will never get over, but this is likely to have the opposite effect, which of course, Rove and Top Man
    Cornyn, will react accordingly,

  7. Yep–it’s a pattern with this idiot. He needs to go. Now.

  10. oh. They teach you how to be a low-class race-baiting slut at prep school now?

    You’d think they’d try to differentiate themselves.

  13. Jeb, Huckster, Santorum, even Romney all want in.

    Somehow I don’t think anyone but a Republican apparatchik is going to show to support their team.

    Paper bags blow away in a wind, get soaked and break in the rain and can be torn off one’s head by ward volunteers.

  14. The establishment republicans want to repaint all the govt. buildings banana yellow.

  16. Turnout in Afghanistan where snipers monitor the polls is far better nationally than Amerikkka.

    We are near the bottom in voter turnout worldwide.

    Blame the voter.

  17. The GOP establishment aren’t the RINOs. They’re the Republicans, just as they’ve always been. BUt a lot of the rank-and-file IS turning RINO, in the literal sense of the phrase.

  18. This time let’s settle on someone electable, mmK?

    Someone low-information voters can identify with, howsabout?
