socialist-hollering, Glenn Beck-worshiping, tea party wing nuts
tea party lunatics
tea party nut jobs
tea party nut jobs (he must really like that one)
tea party nutcases (see what I mean?!)
I wonder if carville honestly believes that this is a useful tactic? My neighbors look at me and see a guy who takes care of his family, tends to his property, flies the American flag, and generally treats folks with the same respect that he demands for himself.
I look at my neighbors and largely see the same things. Some are outwardly Republicans, some obvious Democrats, many others you just can’t tell. There’s not a one of them that I can imagine being moved by an acid-tongued screed like this.
The Democrats that I interact with have, for the most part, gone quiet. This isn’t what they signed up for and a lot of them are overwhelmed. They truly believed the hype, ignored the warnings, and now suffer from “buyers remorse”.
They’ve seen pictures of the Vietnam protests, the Chicago, Watts, and LA riots, seen the WTO protests, and the relentless anti-Bush protests. They also remember MLK’s march on Washington, and more recently the Tea Party Protests culminating with the 912 March on Washington. They recognize the difference between civil protest and anarchy.
I would submit that carville & crew may pick up a few dollars from the hardcore left, but by & large this is going to be another dhimmi flop.
James, Where’s the love. I thought it was the Republicans who were filled with hate. “Lunitics,” “nut jobs,” “fringe,” “nutcases,” a very convincing argument. Carville is so articulate. If a conservative calls a liberal a “nut job,” that is hate speech. If a liberal calls a conservative a “nut job,” it is not hate speech, it is the truth. Liberals have set the standard. Conservatives can never win under these conditions. They control the culture. They determined that conseratives would be described as “reds,” and the real REDS, the “progressives,” are described as blue.
