Today on Tommy T’s Obsession with the Freeperati – Mitch’s Bitches edition

Morning, gentle people – damn, those corroding drums of Freeperati toxic mental sludge plie up to the roof if you’re not disposing of them, so let’s get started.

AirlockDoor

In case nobody noticed, there was a festering heap of GOP primaries last week, and the Freeperati have been promising to prove that they’re NOT a gibbering minority fringe of the fringe, and sweep the elections!

And that McConnell guy?Toast, baby!

So – let’s go to the son-of-a-Mitching Live Primary Thread!

It was suggested that one be started so I’ll take the lead!

It’s simple. Lose Turtle via Grimes and Boehner if possible – 21% of his district voted against him – and, voila! Cruz leads Senate and Gowdy the House.

Killjoy.
Well, at least I can depend on the Freeperati to not turn a foregone conclusion into an end-of-the-world, bloody-revolution-in-the-streets moment…

It is CLEAR the battle to ave (sic) America will need to take place AFTER IT IS INITIALLY DESTROYED.
On the other hand…

We simply do not have the numbers to defeat two corrupt parties. And it is clear Republican’t voters are just as STUPID, IGNORANT and EASILY CONTROLLED/INFLUENCED as democrat voters.

Get ready.

I’m READY!! OBUMMER shows up on my doorstep to take my guns and force me to gay-marry my dog, I’m not going down without a fight!! And you, my Freeper friend, will lead the armed resistance and bloody fighting!!

What did you say your name was again?

So – Mitch hasn’t been ousted by the massive voting power of the Teahadists.
What to do?

To: dware
If Bevin loses, I’ll be sending a financial donation to the Democrat challenger. McConnel must go, at all costs.

Talk like that makes me sick. No matter how bad Mitch is, all democrats are 200% worse. They band together to slime America, a national effort supported by every seat they win. If you’re that put off, don’t vote but for God’s sake, send Dems money??

McConnell, 67,870 59%

Rand Paul backed McConnell in exchange for a seat on the foreign relations committee. Had he backed Bevin, this race would have turned out differently. Paul shouldn’t have stabbed the conservative in the back like that.

They should have a rule that any member in Senate or House GOP who gets under 60% can not be in leadership.

It’s not about the “r” next to McConnell’s name. He is a vile and dangerous oligarch who should be removed from power. And should not be granted the power he lusts after.

No bias at FoxNews as they announced several times of the primary pitting McConnell against “Bevin, who was caught giving a speech at a cock fighting rally.”

Bias? What bias? He gave a speech at a cock-fighting rally and after the backlash he apologized for doing it — “I am genuinely sorry that my attendance at an event which, other than my comments, appears to have primarily involved a discussion of cockfighting, has created concern on the part of many Kentucky voters,” Bevin said in a statement. “I understand that concern. “I am not and have never been, a supporter of cockfighting or any other forms of animal cruelty.”

The guy is politically inept. He either should have not attended the event OR responded with a stronger retort than this blather. Now he will probably lose.

You suddenly started caring about people other than yourself?

Is 2014 lost already? Reading some comments it seems that it is. I know that it is only a few select states’ primaries tonight, but still, I am getting why bother in November 2014 for conservatives vibes on this here thread.

Well, the rest of the thread is standard Party loyalists versus tear-it-all-down-and-start-over nihilists (start over with what, I always wonder?), so let’s get right to the gloating:

Mitch McConnell Embraces Old Enemies as FriendsABC News ^ | May 21, 2014 | By Jeff Zeleny

Posted on 5‎/‎21‎/‎2014‎ ‎4‎:‎56‎:‎46‎ ‎PM by Oldeconomybuyer

Sen. Mitch McConnell was all smiles today: Not only because of his Republican primary victory in Kentucky, but because of a string of about-face endorsements from conservative groups intent on destroying him.

“I’m happy to have them on board,” McConnell said dryly, standing just off the floor of the Senate, where he hopes to become majority leader in November if Republicans pick up six seats and control of the Senate.

“Collectively, this group spent about $1 million against me in the primary,” McConnell said. “But they all got on board last night.”

Not only did they get on board, they fell into line. And fast.

I just heard AGAIN on the news how MM ‘CRUSHED’ the tea party. That is enough for me. I will NOT vote for him. If Grimes wins she could be sent home next time. We might never have as good of a chance to get rid of this traitor again. I will not vote for Grimes. But I certainly will not vote for someone who considers me an enemy either.

So – it’s time to assign blame.

To: Steven Scharf

“Karen Handel is not going to make up 30,000 votes, That would be 7% of all votes cast.

Not going to happen. I am surprised this one has not been called yet.”
___________________________________________________________

This should put an almost closed door to the idea that Sarah Palin is still any kind of endorsement powerhouse on her own anymore. As we’ve seen this year with Katrina Pierson, Steve Lonergan, Elizabeth Benacqusito and now apparently Karen Handel (who also failed with the Palin endorsement the last time she ran for governor), Sarah Palin alone no longer has that Touch Of Gold backing that turns a loser into a winner (and the truth is the legend of such a thing is far more exaggerated than the reality). For all of the women listed above, they had very little support – endorsement or otherwise – from the major funding conservative groups like SCF, Club For Growth, etc. Their biggest “asset” to run for office was literally that Palin endorsement. And it turned up trumps for them.

It seems we’ve at last reached the point where Sarah Palin’s penchant for telling other politicians what they must do – while she declines to seek office herself as a former head of state – is wearing thin. She’s preaching from the sidelines berating others who do go through the rigors of facing an electorate every two or six years, while she heaps nothing but criticism on most of them – from the protected sanctity of the makeup & wardrobe trailer on the set of her latest TV show, airing on a channel nobody ever heard of. Palin needs to either suit up, and get in the game after five years of personal cashing in on her political career that was a half-decade ago and fix the problems she demands others fix. Or she should just shut up and go away. Her recent string of losing endorsements where SHE was the major endorsement power attests to the fact that she’s not the political force she was in 2010 (and no, Plain faithful, Sasse was NOT a Palin operation since he was backed and supported LONG ago by SCF Club For Growth, various TEA Party groups well before Palin weighed in). Attention Governor Palin: get your name on a ballot and get your own hands dirty – or bloody – to help fix the mess we’re in that you keep complaining about, or shut up already. We’ll get behind Ted and Mike – and sometimes even Rand and Marco – they had the guts to run and work (especially Ted). You just sit in your star trailer. And complain. Lame, Sarah. Very, very lame

The McConnell challenge that wasn’t
Politico/Playbook ^ | 5/20/14 | JAMES HOHMANN

Posted on ‎5‎/‎20‎/‎2014‎ ‎2‎:‎16‎:‎53‎ ‎PM by Baynative

Matt Bevin seemed like the ideal candidate to challenge Mitch McConnell. The handsome and personable businessman, a father of nine, impressed national conservative groups looking for a chance to knock off the Senate Republican leader.

These groups, from the Senate Conservatives Fund to FreedomWorks, the Tea Party Patriots and the Madison Project, invested more than $1 million in the Kentucky GOP primary. Bevin himself spent more than $3 million, including $1 million of his own fortune.

And, yet, polls indicate he’s going to get creamed Tuesday.

“Did Bevin really come out in support of dog and cock fighting?”

No, not at all. He attended a fundraiser and another attender of that fundraiser was supportive of legislation to re-instate cock fighting.

“Fox reported that last night.”

Dump Rove network and got with The Blaze. You will be much better informed and much better entertained. The fact that they reported a story that was already debunked WEEKS ago, is proof enough that they are pro-establishment and anti-individual liberty.

Pox on Fox.

To: CSM

No thanks, Can’t stand Glenn Beck.

Speaking at a fundraiser to support cock fighting was a big mistake. I doubt many conservatives support legalizing cockfighting. It gave ammunition for McConnell. It makes me wonder if Bevin was chosen by the establishment with the express purpose of exploding at the end.

McConnell should have been beatable by a real conservative.

“No true McConnell” alert!

To: Baynative

Rand Paul did this. He backed McConnell in exchange for a seat on the foreign relations committee. He sold us out in exchange for power.

Why McConnell has provoked this fight is beyond me. It seems we are all being played by the left into our own self-destruction as a force for good.

Finally, someone is getting a whiff of the truth.

McConnell, Boehner et. al, are called the ‘Ruling Class’ for a reason.

We went Soviet folks. The “opposition party” is just for show. The Ruling Class works together to establish a Fascist Police State where government is god and we little people must be controlled and regulated because we do not know what is best for us.

If Americans really knew how meaningless their votes are in deciding the direction of the country at this point – they might actually DO SOMETHING about it.

When expedience trumps principles, then submission to tyranny is all that remains for a people who will not risk what it takes to maintain liberty.

So – now that it’s a done deal, what about Mitch’s Democratic opponent in the general election, Alison Grimes?

To: JLAGRAYFOX
Grimes currently has more absolute numbers of votes in her primary than the entire slate of Republicans has.

Grimes is going to win in November.

That’s not a bad thing. McConnell voted the way Reid wanted most of the time anyway. So votes in the Senate won’t really change.

So since the Democrat Alison Grimes will win the election (due to all of those Freeper votes that somehow couldn’t make any difference in the primary), how do the Freeperati feel about her?

To: exit82
In KY, does the issue of what is happening to coal with Obama’s EPA come front and center?

How do the Dems there defend the Administrations obvious attempts to gut their industry?

They do exactly what Manchin did in West Virginia – scream bloody murder over it in order to hide their complicity/impotence.

I’d put good money on Grimes using a high-powered hunting rifle to put a bullet through the Obama regs before the election is out. Just like Manchin did.Her twist will be doing it dressed in a way to make every red-blooded KY male’s knees knock:

One of the main strategies of the DNC this year is to convince voters that republicans and democrats are really the same, so it’s best to either stay home (as a way to teach the GOP a lesson) or just vote for the more folksy dem.

It appears to be working completely here on FR.
