THIS IS THE REASON THE REPUBLIKLAN WILL GO DOWN IN DEFEAT IN THE 2012 MANDATE ELECTIONS THAT WILL RETURN THE NATION TO DEMOCRATIC PARTY RULE FOR AT LEAST THE NEXT THIRTY YEARS !

Comment to Republican gun raffle in Giffords’ county draws criticism
[Caps in the original.

I’m struck by the parallels between the mindset of anti-gun people, “the anointed” as described by Thomas Sowell, and the army leaders during the lead up to the war with the Nez Perce Indians. They don’t, and perhaps can’t, understand the other side, they “know” they are right and it is obvious their opponents are wrong to the point of being insane. A final parallel is that when things turn out different than expected instead of revising their mindset they proclaim their superiority even louder.

If it weren’t a matter of life and death it would be amusing.—Joe]

  1. I see…the incumbent party, faced with 9% unemployment, will win decisively by pounding an issue supported by 20% of the population. That’s the most brilliant plan since David Frum said the GOP should climb on the cap and trade bandwagon, just when the economy was going into a recession.

  2. He seems to not realize that when it comes to elections, the average voter has a memory this only 90 days duration. If it didn’t occur within 90 days of the election, it might as well not have happened at all.

  3. There might be one exception to the 90-day electorate memory rule: the Health Care debacle. But then, it can be argued that the effects of Obama”Care” are being felt well after it has been passed, even before it takes effect, so it might not count!
