How to Define McConnell?

Stacy McCain on the gelatinous McConnell:

...Like Trent Lott and Bob Dole before him, Mitch is the Senate Republican leader, and the job of the Senate Republican leader is to make conservative voters say to themselves: “What the hell is the point in voting for those worthless RINO douchebags? Might as well stay home on Election Day!”

It is a fact of history that no one has ever tried to assassinate a Senate Republican leader — not even the wildest madman would bother wasting ammunition on such worthless creatures....

About sums it up.

Stacy McCain says, "Let’s just hope someone will slip an earmark into the final bill to fund a grant from the National Institutes of Health for researchers to conduct a mental-health survey of South Carolina Republican voters. We need to prevent the spread of whatever dangerous insanity caused them to make Lindsey Graham a senator."

Yeah, those words will surely convince GOP voters in that state to change their tune! I thought only the liberal elite knew best what was good for the general public because they were, in essence, ignorant.


"It is a fact of history that no one has ever tried to assassinate a Senate Republican leader — not even the wildest madman would bother wasting ammunition on such worthless creatures."

Stay classy, McCain! Keep alienating the base.

"The Base" agrees with Mr. McCain?

Really? "The Base" agrees that South Carolinians are stupid for voting for Lindsay Graham? "The Base" agrees that RINO's are "worthless creatures"?


Let's look at "The Base", shall we?

I think you or Amy are from South Carolina, I forget. From the link..."Even in supposedly ultra-conservative South Carolina, somewhat conservatives and very conservatives tied with 34% of the GOP electorate, with moderates and liberals nearly even at 32%."

Moderate conservatives and independents, not die-hard conservatives, appear to be the key to winning national elections.

North Carolina, close to the SC border actually.

The northern definitions don't really apply. Dem registrations outnumber Rep by a large margin. Why? Because - not too long ago - you couldn't vote in a primary election unless you were a registered Democrat. There were no Republicans, the primary was the General. The "Dixiecrats" are very conservative.

As the Democrat Party has gotten more and more liberal, more of them are voting Republican but they haven't changed their registrations. "My Daddy was a Democrat and my Grand-daddy was a Democrat..."

Several county Party orgs in South Carolina have voted to censure Lindsey Graham. Neither he, or his "moderate" stances are beloved by the base. Jim DeMint and Tim Scott are rock stars however... Tim spoke at the NC State GOP convention and was quite impressive.
