Conservatives Nervous Over John McCain

January 31, 2008

The greatest thing to see is the Republican Party splitting open and fighting at the time they should be uniting behind a presidential nominee. If this isn’t cheap theatre, than I have no idea what would qualify.

Conservative bloggers declare right-wingers will never support John McCain if he becomes the nominee.   Rush Limbaugh appears to have been popping oxycontin before most of his recent entertainment shows on radio.  He has went ape-crap on the air.  Meanwhile conservative talk radio in New York (WABC) is running 24 hours a day in an all out effort to demonize the Arizona Republican.

But the moderates and independents in the GOP are striking back with endorsements and money.  Stable-minded Republicans want their party back, and are fighting the conservatives to return the GOP to some sense of sanity. 

Tonight even Darth Vader’s (Robert Novak) seems to concede what is becoming the obvious.   John McCain will win. 

John McCain’s successive wins in South Carolina and Florida mean he clearly is the front-runner in a two-man race with former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney. Everything is in his favor in the high population states, and he could come close to wrapping up the nomination because of winner-take-all Republican rules. Time is growing short for the right wing of the GOP to stop McCain or even wrest concessions from him.

    McCain will be the toughest contender in the general election. Moderates and independents will vote for him with more ease than they ever could with Romney. In 2000 I was very taken with the McCain message and am very pleased that he looks to be the GOP nominee this cycle.

    I am not ready to say that Democrats will win in November yet, so why should you?

    Progressives have to be thrilled, the one sure way for them to move back to the White House is to have non conservative running on the Republican side.

    Enjoy your four years in the WH.

    I like to think that the coterie of cretins that is right-wing radio, corporations, and religious fanatics is on the brink of self-destruction. Unfortunately I foresee them regrouping and honing their hatred for ’12 and beyond. They’re dying off, but not nearly fast enough to suit me. (They’re not really conservatives.)
