The Clash of the Wingnut Titans
"Some Republicans are trying to de-stupidize the party, but the base won't let them. Rove's plan to stop the teabaggers from nominating more sure losers seems to have energized the Nutty faction to fight back to overthrow the Sane faction. Even if the Sanes win, a Nutty third candidacy could split the party."
The latest spark on the tinder is of course Karl Rove's "Conservative Victory Project" which seeks to channel the power of big donors to neutralize the militant teabaggers' campaigns in support of flaming nutballs like Christine O'Donnell and Richard Mourdock, who take out viable moderate Republican candidates in the primaries (they felled Richard Lugar, fercryin'outloud) and then go down to defeat against Democrats in the general elections.
Teabaggerdom took Rove's initiative as a declaration of war, and the battle was joined. This Monday, blogger Smartypants reported that the Koch brothers, the true founders of teabaggerdom, and Donald Trump, that orangutan-like buffoon of the feces-flinging right wing, have also taken the field against Rove. Now Richard Viguerie is piling on too. In the latest wrinkle, a teabagger group has sent out a fund-raising e-mail depicting Rove in a Nazi uniform.
That's the problem with these people -- in every fight they immediately go nuclear. It was weird enough when they were calling Obama a Commie Muslim Nazi Kenyan America-hater, but now they're even doing it to people who are basically on their own side.
As Smartypants says, "There isn't enough popcorn in the world!" Let's hope the wingnuts have themselves a fine fratricidal feces-flingin' good time battling it out for the next few years, giving us the House and the magic 60 in the Senate in 2014 and a Paul or Palin third-candidate fustercluck in 2016.
