Where the rhythm is the bass and the bass proposes a massive ideological slaughter of its enemies.
Now, what about those whom Obama and his supporters vanquished? What the Republican party badly needs is a Night of the Long Knives.
Finally, Jonah Goldberg’s thesis has been validated with all the gusto that unintentional irony can provide. The proposal that conservatives wholeheartedly embrace the fascist purge of dissenters and dangerous elements – in response to a liberal victory – is actually the Final Solution of the Liberal Fascist movement, designed to get the innocent and wholesome conservatives of America to pick each other off, stupid rumor by stupid rumor. Smooth move, Woodrow Wilson. Smooth move.
Although he advocates that George W. Bush be tossed out in the purge, he does allow for some redeeming qualities to the otherwise surefire enemy of the state in which he doesn’t believe:
Bush has kept America safe from terror attacks since September 11. The liberations of Afghanistan from bin Ladenism and Iraq from Ba’athism were vital victories for national security and human rights. Until this year’s mortgage meltdown, his tax cuts fueled robust growth. Good work.
Yes, until everything he did failed, he was a success. And until he got grades back, he was a valedictorian, too.
Murdock then goes on and bravely tells us that the Republican Party’s parade of convicted felons, retired crappy leaders and current, soon-to-be-replaced leaders should not be leading the party. This is because it is easy to say completely obvious things. I’m all in favor of the GOP continuing to have this fight, over and over and over again until someone finally tells Dick Armey that he’s not invited to the party anymore – Democrats, for years, spent so much time trying to figure out who to blame and how to blame them that the guiding focus of the party became avoiding mistakes rather than doing anything proactive. It’s how we got the Iraq War and the Bush tax cuts, among other flights of politically “necessary” fancy.
There is one thing about this developing conservative crackup that is telling – in all the years that Democrats groused in the wilderness, angry at the feckless leadership of our own party, our enemies lists never grew this large, this fast, this pointlessly. They were also never this grease-stained.
