Liz Mair Rips the Republican Establishment: It's Chock Full of Frauds

The Republican establishment is woefully directionless and confused. On Twitter, Republican communications consultant Liz Mair slammed the party's unprincipled leadership, especially the nincompoops Reince Preibus and John Boehner.

It's Liz Mair here. Your title and description suggests you didn't read my tweets. You might want to read the ones where I specifically mentioned the "establishment" and "populist grassroots," and then consider editing your post. Thanks.

Liz, thanks for the note.

I didn't say I agreed with your assertion regarding the grass-roots.

What: does Karl Rove have some following I don't know about?

The grass-roots is dominated by the Tea Party and has been battling the establishment tooth and nail (think Cruz vs. Dewhurst, for example).

If by "grass-roots", you mean the Ford-Nixon wing of the country club Republicans, then okay, maybe I see that.

But the Constitutional Conservatives, the massive hordes who follow Rush, Hannity and Levin, don't fit any of the faux-conservative attributes you've described.

Wait, a self-professed "social media expert" serial-tweets?

Please, GOP, keep these people, they're priceless!

I don't understand you libertarians. Liz, you and other libertarians seem to live a hypothetical dream world where the market is this deified object. The market doesn't do basic scientific research that's the core of all new technological discoveries, the market will not protect our drinking water or any other environmental resource for that matter, it will not protect our food supply, the market could never build good roads, sewers, bridges, water treatment plants, air traffic control, dams, and other basic, fundamental infrastructure for an advanced society. The market has never and would never ensure universal access to education, universal access to health, it does not protect equity, justice, and fairness. To live by market values is to reduce everything to a monetary transaction and a commodity. I don't think that would be a very good society to live in, and it surely wouldn't be prosperous.
