......and the beat goes on.
Lamestream Media Elitists Write Stuff like this. To me there appears to be more than just a whiff of sexism and elitism here:
The Tea Party has discarded Sarah Palin in favor of a new icon: Michele Bachmann.
The incense and hallelujahs once heaped upon the Martyr of Wasilla have been redirected to the Saint of Waterloo. As with Palin too, the Bachmann-mania seems likely to prove both embarrassing and temporary. Before it subsides, we thought it might be a useful service to future generations of Republicans to preserve some of the most effusive statements – in hopes of inoculating this party against recurrences of this form of delusion in the political cycles to come.

I don’t know about this, the teabag laced portion of the GOP base seem to conveniently forget about past embarrassments. Anyone remember a fella’ by the name of George W Bush? Wingers were pretty hot and bothered over him at one time. I remember Peggy Noonan writing that - watching Bush in action was like seeing the hand of God at play….in a good way. Today, far from begging for forgiveness in every column, Noonan still prattles away with WSJ pieces dispensing the same sort of drivel recalculated for a new day. Same shit for a different day. I suspect that is how it will always be under wingnut rule.
