Which is the Stupid Party?

The Republican Party has often been called The Stupid Party.  Generally this is stated by Democrats and their colleagues in the media.   But sometimes conservative columnists would so brand the GOP.   I recall the late Robert Novak saying this of the Republicans shortly after the Gingrich Revolution.

While I think this was simply a stereotype, today if there is a Stupid Party it is the Donkeys who wear this label.   They went through all sorts of contortions to pass health care reform.   Now they strain to find hate speech and unacceptable language to brand the Republicans as the Conservatives (dare I say it?) “Fight back.”   One of the truly comical was Ann Curry of the Today show with pained face asking John McCain if Sarah Palin’s use of “targeting opponents” was over the top.    McCain rightly laughed in her face and said that both sides employ this language with no thought of violence.

I wonder if Curry and the rest of the herd media recall James Carville (whom his wife, Mary Matalin, affectionately calls “Serpent Head”) speak of the Clinton “War Room.”   If so, does Ann think that Carville and the Clinton soldiers were storing up bazookas there to fire at the Republicans.    CNN had a popular show called “Cross Fire.”   Should this have been banned for being too violent  in sound?

Then there is alleged spitting at House Members as they gleefully marched through protesters to Capitol Hill to pass health care on March 21.   Some even supposedly yelled racial slurs at black Congressman.   But someone has offered 10,000 dollars for video evidence of this.   No one has stepped forward to collect.   If this happened it is certainly wrong but it is equally unacceptable to falsely accuse anyone of such behavior.    The media is salivating to hang the Tea Party as racist hicks but the evidence is not there.

And Joe, just call me Joe, Biden.   The Vice President is a likable man.   I like him.   But surely all can see media bias when Cheney is tarred and feathered for employing salty language toward a Senator while Joe is celebrated for the same language as he introduces the President in all his splendor after passing health care.  And Joe was on mike.   Surely he knew that.   And he also knew this would be celebrated which it was.    Our President also yukked it up.

Meanwhile, the mainstream press (known as lame stream by Bernie Goldberg) looks in every nook and cranny for evidence of improper, violent language from the GOP.   This is just one reason why Ann Curry and her cronies have no audience other than when FOX replays her interview with John McCain and that for comic relief:   “Senator McCain, do you really think that your former running mate should employ words like targeting an opponent?”    All this with Ann wearing the perfectly practiced pained face.   Carville’s War Room anyone?

Well, is it any wonder why FOX is killing their competition?   In the media wars Fox outdraws CNN and MSNBC combined.   And Fox does not have to target an audience.   Left, Right and Center are all interested in quality, fair and balanced news.  The battle has been won but the mainstream does not change tactics or strategy.    No surrender or call for quarter yet.   One cannot help but wonder what the Generals at their Cable Headquarter War Rooms are thinking and planning.   More of the same will not do.  

May I suggest they stop pushing Ann out on a hopeless mission, hoist up the white flag of surrender,  learn from fair and
balanced Fox, stop doing the bidding of the Stupid Party, tell the truth about both Republicans and Democrats and let the chips fall where they may.    The old mainstream will feel better and so will we.
