QOTD: "Jeb Bush has made it clear that he wants to win the Republican nomination without needing the votes of the Republican base, i.e., the Tea Party.

He doesn't want to have to sell his soul for the Tea Party vote. What that means is, he doesn't want to have to pretend to be a conservative at any time during the primary to get the Tea Party or conservative vote... He's not gonna pander. And as evidence, I offer you this from the Washington Times. This is back in 2009, May 3 of 2009, but it's important that you have this in the hopper.

"Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush said Saturday that it’s time --" this is May 3rd of 2009, so five years ago, admittedly, but it fits nicely with yesterday. "Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush said Saturday that it’s time for the Republican Party to give up its 'nostalgia' for the heyday of the Reagan era and look forward, even if it means stealing the winning strategy deployed by Democrats in the 2008 election." --Rush Limbaugh

Time after time these feckless, lying RINO's count on the fact that we will hold our collective noses and vote for them instead of the liberal, lying candidate. Damned if we do, damned if we don't because the RNC and DNC have been hideously entwined for years.

It would be funny if a Cyber attack on Hollywood started a war. Our gaze is being directed to the ridiculous while Obama gets away with the outrageous.
Wake me up in 2 years.

Leftist elitism offers an explanation for why Leftists do not strongly oppose totalitarian governments such as in Iran, which currently restrict most of the social goods that Leftists say they want.

Progressives accept totalitarian regimes because of the progressive's own plan:
(1) Take control of government.
(2) Invest government with absolute power to make wise decisions.
(3) Guide society to peace, prosperity, and happiness.

A totalitarian regime has already accomplished (1) and (2). That regime may be nasty and currently against all of the progressive's desires, but the progressive doesn't want to throw away that accomplishment. The progressive wants to use diplomacy and cooperation to bend the totalitarian regime to progressive ends.

Finding a totalitarian regime in place changes the task of transformaing society into a type of grant proposal. The Leftist assumption is that our elite will convince their elite of a better way, without having to engage a large number of stupid peasants.

> GOP Senator Mark Kirk Vows To Screen “The Interview” At His Fundraisers

US Senator Mark Kirk (R-IL) needs a distraction from his recent votes. Just off the top of my head:

> There was never, after all, a reason to rush an all-encompassing bill funding the federal government before appropriations ran out on Dec. 11. Instead of giving Obama virtually everything he wanted despite his party's historic drubbing at the polls last month, lawmakers could easily have drafted a stopgap spending bill to carry them over to January, when Republicans will control both chambers of Congress and have greater bargaining power in negotiations with the president.
> But they didn't. After hours and days of arm-twisting, they rammed an abominable spending bill through Congress that funds Obama's Democrat voter-importation program.
> It was an easy vote. A gimme.
> But to their everlasting shame, 20 Republicans voted to reject Cruz's point of order, waive the Constitution, and green-light Obama's amnesty.
> These quislings are Lamar Alexander (Tenn.), Kelly Ayotte (N.H.), John Barrasso (Wyo.), Dan Coats (Ind.), Thad Cochran (Miss.), Susan Collins (Me.), Bob Corker (Tenn.), John Cornyn (Texas), Mike Enzi (Wyo.), Jeff Flake (Ariz.), Lindsey Graham (S.C.), Orrin Hatch (Utah), Dean Heller (Nev.), Ron Johnson (Wisc.), Mark Kirk (Ill.), John McCain (Ariz.), Mitch McConnell (Ky.), Lisa Murkowski (Alaska), Pat Toomey (Penn.), and Roger Wicker (Miss.).
