Stuff That Will Cause Fights

Mark Levin on the "French Republicans" of the House and Senate.

Here's his rant, in audio.

Obama says he will veto any bill containing a defund provision, which means he's vowing to shut the government down over an unpopular law. I wish someone would point that out.


Oh.

This is like when you have a losing team and they just want to keep doing the same thing. And then someone says "Let's try the Wildcat" and the team that's used to losing says "No that won't work; let's stick with our nonworking version of the West Coast Offense."

Well... you are always losing, soooo...

The other thing is that I feel like the Establishment is always telling us the agenda that will make their lives easier.

Well I know what agenda will make their lives easier-- obviously, an agenda that is just slightly to the right of the Democrats' leftist agenda would force the Democrats into the smallest space and open up a lot of space for Republicans.

In game theory, yes, that strategy will probably yield the most successes. I am not ignorant of that.

But what is the point then? We're not just rooting for a party like we root for a football team. (Although it does feel that way sometimes.)

We're pushing for a party to undertake specific efforts. Without those efforts, "winning" is purely a technical exercise.

We have an election coming up in 2014? Oh... right. Because we won't have one coming up in 2016, or 2018, or 2020...

There's always an election coming up, guys. For God's sakes. What kind of reasoning is this? Might as well say "We'll pay you back the Next of Never" and be done with it.

Here's the Bro version of that Opt Out of ObamaCare ad:
