Conservatives to save Republican Party by utterly destroying Republican Party

20 05 2009

It’s like finally finding a house that is able to clean itself. Faced with a vacuum of both ideas and leadership, factions of the GOP have taken to literally declaring war on one another, leaving the Dems sort of sitting on the sideline like an amused if skeptical Maytag repairman.

The latest variation on this theme comes to us courtesy of frothy homophobe/misogynist and AmSpec blogger Robert Stacy McCain, who has started a movement called Not One Red Cent. According to the movement’s web site:

On May 12, 2009, The National Republican Senatorial Committee betrayed its mission, betrayed Republican voters, and betrayed the Reagan legacy.

The NRSC sided with an establishment candidate, Florida Gov. Charlie Crist, in a Senate primary against young conservative leader, former Florida House Speaker Marco Rubio.

Republicans across the country were outraged by this action, which is only the latest betrayal of grassroots conservatives by the out-of-touch GOP elite in Washington.

The word went forth among conservative activists: Do not give money to the NRSC. The current chairman, Sen. John Cornyn, must resign. His replacement must pledge to keep the committee neutral in contested primaries. Let Republican voters — not party elites — choose Republican candidates.

This is where the conservative grassroots rebellion begins. When the NRSC asks you for money, tell ’em:

NOT ONE RED CENT!

So, uh, you guys run along and do that. We’ll just be over here running the country.
