AT CHRIS MUIR’S strip of Tuesday, taking exception to the exchange between Sam and Skye. I had a similar notion out of an other impetus. I thought Skye’s claim that the Left beat the GOP to be a perfect teachable moment.
No, dear, the Left did not beat the GOP. The GOP beat themselves. Remember that 58 MILLION </dr.evil> people voted against Obama. And that’s with the Republicans running a candidate who could be classed with Hubert Humphrey. Bill Clinton with more morals and less political savvy. The upside-down ticket. If the Republicans had run an honest and vigorous conservative, Obama would have slinked home to Chicago with his tail between his legs. It would have been a landslide.
So, to quote Han Solo, “Great, Kid! Don’t get cocky!” Because your leftist candidates are not all that popular. They don’t lie, cheat, and steal to win elections just because it’s fun. They lie, cheat, and steal to win elections because they have to. If a Republican (or any other party) candidate can get some wood on the ball with serious pro-American virtues on the right issues, it’s over the center-field wall at fifty feet in the air.
