Conservative Wanderer

“A troubled and afflicted mankind looks to us, pleading for us to keep our rendezvous with destiny; that we will uphold the principles of self-reliance, self-discipline, morality, and, above all, responsible liberty for every individual that we will become that shining city on a hill.” — Ronald Wilson Reagan

NOW Jumps The Shark: Endorses Male Democrat Over Female Republican

Is there any possible doubt over the fact that NOW is nothing more than a handy mouthpiece for the Democratic Party?

Not any more.

At one time, NOW supposedly supported women becoming a success in business. However, now that the rubber has hit the road and one of those successful women is challenging a long-time Democratic politician, who happens to be male, and who’s been in politics most of his adult life. And whom does NOW endorse?

Jerry “Call Her A Whore” Brown.

I think NOW should add “A Wholly Owned Subsidiary of the Democratic Party” to their name.

The Tea Party Is Racist? Don’t Tell Lloyd Marcus

Here is my personal story.

A urine smell permeated the stairwell. In the darkness due to smashed light bulbs, the sound of broken wine bottles underfoot echoed off the concrete walls. I was nine years old. With the elevators out of service half the time due to vandalism, I was forced many times to take the scary trek into the shadow of death up the stairwell to our sixth-floor apartment in the projects of east Baltimore.

This was a far cry from the brand spanking new building we had moved into just two years earlier. I remember our excitement when my parents, three younger siblings and I moved in our apartment. It was a dream come true – moving from our leaky-roofed ghetto into a place where everything, including the appliances, were new.

We were one of the first in the 11-story, all black residents building. While a few people kept their apartments lovely, most seemed committed to destroying the building.

All I kept hearing was that everything was the “white man’s fault”. Even at the age of nine, I sarcastically thought to myself, “how can we stop these evil white people from sneaking in here at night peeing in the stairwell, leaving broken wine bottles, smashing the light bulbs and attacking people?”

So, my early experience living in the government project taught me that some folks simply have a ghetto mindset. I also witnessed the trap of government welfare. And why were so many around me angry and violent – despite getting free housing, food and healthcare?

Believe it or not, he’s writing in the UK Guardian, which is just as lefty as the New York Times.

Lloyd is also the guy who wrote the Tea Party Anthem.

Oh, and he’s black.

Yes, you read that right. One of the strongest spokesmen for the Tea Party movement calls himself a “(black) unhyphenated American” right there on his blog.

Still wanna claim that the Tea Party is racist, Obamacrats?

Sen. Lisa Murkowski Shows Her True Colors

Apparently, she doesn’t much like an ad the Tea Party recently started running on her in Alaska. So, like a true Privileged Princess who got her seat from Daddy, she immediately demands that those peasants stop, immediately!

At issue is an ad the group unveiled Monday, entitled “Arrogant Lisa Murkowski — You Lost!” It seeks to paint Murkowski as more interested in political self-preservation than in serving the interests of Alaskans. It also claims she didn’t “earn” her Senate seat and that she “tried to manipulate the Libertarian party into giving her their slot” on the ballot — claims McKeever called “materially false.”

I dunno about the last two claims, but the first one, that she’s vitally interested in political self-preservation, seems to be amply proven by the fact that her own website shows people how to write her name in after–I say again, after–she lost the GOP primary to Joe Miller. That sure seems like “political self-preservation” to me. It also seems like “desperation.”

Of course, with Murkowski voting against an attempt to stop earmarks (HR 1, roll call vote 46), against a freeze of Federal spending at 2008 levels (HR 1105), and for the SCHIP program expansion, (HR 2), she can hardly be considered a fiscal conservative, much less expect the Tea Party–whose primary focus is on fiscal matters–to be a big Murky fan.

However, by attacking the Tea Party, Murky has finally shown her true colors… not merely RINO, but DIRC: Democrat In Republican Clothing.

She needs to be defeated, again.

Qualifications? Who Needs Qualifications?

The DNC is thinking of appointing a man as their chairman who has never won an election. In fact, as far as I can tell, this man they’re looking hard at hasn’t even been a candidate for any elected office, not even second assistant dogcatcher of his hometown of Auburn, Alabama!

And this is the man that the DNC thinks can lead them to victory in 2012?

Of course, the Democrats have shown that qualifications mean very little to them… look at the qualifications of the titular head of their party.

Therefore, based on their past actions, My Lords, Ladies, and Gentlemen, allow me to present the next Chairman of the Democratic National Committee (below the fold):

When You’ve Lost Walter Mondale…

Even the guy who could only carry his home state of Minnesota and the District of Columbia in the 1984 election (in which he faced Ronaldus Magnus) thinks Mr. Obama relies too much on the teleprompter:

In a discussion of whether Obama projects empathy in his speeches, the 82 year-old Mondale said the president “has got to connect with the American people.” When CNN host Wolf Blitzer asked why Obama has not shown more empathy, Mondale answered, “I’ve seen places where he’s done it. The Milwaukee speech, I thought was terrific. I think some of these backyard events are terrific. But I think he — he’s very bright — as a matter of fact, brilliant. And I think he tends to — and he uses these idiot boards to read speeches on television and I think he loses the connection that he needs emotionally with American voters.”

Personally, I think Obama’s “brilliance” is a fiction in the minds of many Democrats, but it’s still suggestive that this Democrat thinks that Obama has to get rid of TOTUS.

Of course, whenever Obama goes off-teleprompter or off-script, he tends to be even more gaffe-prone than Mr. Biden, including saying there’s 57 states, not knowing the difference between a breathalyzer and an inhalator, among many others. So, I say, trash the ‘Prompter, Barry, and show us your “brilliant” mind and oratorical skills!
