What the heck?
Jim Hoft of Gateway Pundit spoke with John Ziegler, (who gave a light hearted interview about “Balloon Boy” to Captain Ed earlier in the day) asking him about the confrontation and interview with American Conservative Union chairman, David Keene which is what got him into trouble:
Good lord. The head of the ACU has been trashing Sarah Palin and donating money to Arlen friggin’ Specter? Good for Ziegler for calling him out. Someone has to send these Republican dinosaurs a message. That goes for Newt Gingrich, too, who is endorsing Dede Scozzafava, an “ACORN-friendly, union-pandering, tax-and-spend radical Republican”, in essence, “shrugging off” what he calls “conservative purists”.
If the RNC wants to see its current fund-raising edge dry up, they need to just keep doing what they’re doing.
Frankly I prefer the new *in your face* conservatism of activists like John Ziegler and Andrew Breitbart who are far more effective at spreading a conservative message than these paleocons will ever be.
Don’t look now, but Dana Loesch has a rare night off, and is full rant mode:
One of the biggest lies ever told is that the biggest threat to conservatism lies outside the invisible boundaries of the GOP. I disagree; the biggest threat to conservatism is an unchecked Republican party – just as I think the biggest threat to Christianity is a false prophet. There are some false prophets leading the GOP right now: the RNC has an incompetent leader; Newt Gingrich demonstrates that his “American Solution” is to push the GOP center left by backing an ACORN candidate in New York’s 23rd. There are false prophets leading and cowards following: aside from a few Republicans like Michelle Bachmann, few others have denounced the nomination of Dede Scozzafava or Gingrich’s ridiculous proclamation of a “new revolution.” Please. He apparently doesn’t recognize a new revolution when it marches by the millions on Washington.
She’s giving the RNC one week to shape up, or it’s “open season”.
Captain Ed has more on the ugliness at Western CPAC with video. It sounds like he won’t be going back next year.
