This GOP crazy train might be unstoppable(Palin and Bachmann Derangement Syndrome Alert)
Boston Herald ^ | 11/15/09 | Margery"Magpie" Eagan

Posted on 11/15/2009 5:59:43 AM PST by GQuagmire

A little nutty or totally wacked?

Totally wacked, for my money.

But this is the question some Republicans still ponder about the two most “hated” women in the country, as Fox superstar Sean Hannity lovingly calls them.

Margery Eagen is talentless and boring. Have you ever heard her on the radio? My God, what a snooze. She has nothing original or intelligent to say, on any subject, ever.

I'll never forget how when Sarah Palin was announced as McCain's running mate, Eagan and Broudie went on like two catty Oprah fans talking about her clothes and her kids' clothes. Nice substantive discussion, Margery.

Yeah, the station moved her show to AM drive time and knocked off Imus.

My first impression of Sarah Palin. I was impressed. “Govern with a servant’s heart”, “break the glass ceiling” speech

I finally understand the difference between “liberal” and “moderate” in today’s parlance. A liberal is one who thinks Palin/Bachmann are “evil”, whereas a moderate thinks them simply “crazy” and “dangerous”.

Neither type feels any need to explain why, since they know their point of view would be shared by any sane person. Both nevertheless feel the need to reiterate their point of view over and over again.

Notice how subtlly she makes the conservative positions seem crazy:

Bachmann once urged Minnesotans to be “armed and dangerous” in a fight against a proposed energy tax.

And who can forget her infamous “Light Bulb Free Choice Act”? Its purpose: to keep Democrats from forcing fluorescents on Real Americans and Freedom Fighters

I don't know who Margery Eagan is, but she's shown herself to be a hack.

They also love to take quotes out of context to make a point ie. Conservative politician X believes in aliens and said, “Aliens are real” when they actually said, “Illegal aliens are a real problem in the southwest.”

both seized that power by spellbinding and, in Bachmann’s case, bizarre moments, such as the time Michele told Chris Matthews, seriously, that she wanted an investigation of Congress to roust out anti-American, coup-plotting moles.

After reading some of the garbage that's in the Pelosi health care bill, this doesn't sound bizarre at all. Who put that stuff in there?

“Then there were all those references to God advising her on campaign strategies. As the old saying goes, if you talk to God, you are praying. If God is talking to you, don’t tell the world, lest the world think it time for the men in white coats.”

Heh. We just had a series at Church about listening to God. Read the book of Acts sometime, Margery, and count the number of time the Holy Spirit spoke to the apostles.

“. . . while Hamlet Obama continues his “yes-we-can-but-not-just-yet” routine.”

This quote made it worthwhile to read the column. If a dedicated Obama fan wants him to make a decision, the average American must be fed up.

...the two most “hated” women in the country...

Hated by whom, Marxist FemiNazis like Margery"Magpie" Eagan? Good, that's a giant step in the right direction for Palin.

So far, she's got the clearest conservative message out there. She's actually able to articulate true conservative thinking in a simple. comprehensible, Reaganesque way. And she's actually feminine, not a man-hating woman trying to be a man. She is an actual feminine conservative - a potentially lethal combination. And unlike most of her GOP colleagues, she doesn't seem to care about trying to make the other side like her, but cares about recovering our country, its values, and its heritage, again, like Reagan.

Best thing to come down the pike in awhile...

Probably nothing more marginal in today’s discourse than aging white lib feminists. Even al quaida gets more exposure and more love from the rest of the Democratic coalition than the aging 60s feminists. They can thank multi-culturalism and PC for their marginalization, because those “cultures” they champion as better than the evil white man’s are more often than not mysoginistic.

‘Gay’ Jihad

It never ceases to amaze me the degree to which liberals – the self-styled proponents of “tolerance” and “diversity”… the mind-numbingly sanctimonious arbiters of “hate” – consistently prove to be the most intolerant and hateful among us. But regrettably, since the recent passage of “Question 1” – the voter initiative that threw out counterfeit “gay marriage” in Maine – the level of hate-filled bile we’ve come to expect from the left has morphed from malicious to menacing.

In the wake of the horrific act of Islamic domestic terrorism at Fort Hood Texas, it’s been learned that militant homosexual activists recently made similar online postings to those of Nidal Malik Hasan, threatening additional acts of terrorism against Christians.

A number of pro-marriage advocates have also received death threats directly.

Shortly after “Question 1” was voted into law, I issued a press release (posted with additional commentary at AmericansForTruth.com) hailing this pro-family victory. In reaction to that statement a handful of homosexual activists on the popular anti-Christian “JoeMyGod” weblog, became completely unhinged, engaging in death threats and warning of future homosexualist terrorism should their political demands not be met.

Blog poster “ColdCountry” wrote: “Will someone please give me a gun?” Poster “Fritz” warned: “What I fear is that once gay and lesbian people give up hope of achieving equality through nonviolent means, there will be radicals who will begin to hunt down haters… All it will take is a small group of radical zealots who are willing to kill for their cause.”

In reply to Fritz, “tex” posted: “Fritz....you say this like it’s a bad thing? Maybe a bit of well organized terrorism is just what we need.”

Conservative women who dare oppose the Progressive's most sacred "right", that of abortion, are always under fire from their liberal counterparts.

Those who refuse to recognize such a "right" stand in the way of the Progressive vision of a secular society and also of universal health care. In turn, the Left denies conservatives the right to principled opposition, even to taxpayer-funded abortion on demand at any stage of pregnancy and for any reason.

Instead, the Left insists that any such opposition is merely a product of superstition or cruelty. Thus and at once they reject both the objective reality of Life and others' religious faith in the God who made it possible, in service of their anti-human ideology.

What the media and political elites do not understand is the both major political parties are fundamentally flawed. We all know the the DNC is run by the lunatic fringe left. The RNC is run by left-of-center egotists who are opportunistic and self-centered. We essentially have 2 political machines that serves themselves and are completely aloof to the problems and challenges that Americans have.

They are power hungry and expect to RULE over America, not serve it. Instead of listening to their constituents on promient issues like health care, environment, illegal immigration, Congress has told the electorate to FXCK OFF and keep incredibly unpopular bills alive.

They do not realize the growing anger and resentment that is building against them. A double-dip recession is going to make matters much, much worse for them. They will not get it until it is too late.

Dear Margery"Magpie" Eagan ;

When you cannot address your political foes on a rational factual base but instead are forced to resort this sort of foaming at the mouth with rage ad homine attack debating style, you lose.

I suggest you fine a new line of work Ms Eagan, you are utterly failing in this one.

“Instead of paying their dues”
How does one pay their dues to and to whom? If she was talking about paying their dues to the feminists, I guess they would have had to have at least one abortion? Ok the feminist wackos that are on television dissing Sara Palin all have the same things in common. They are unhappy, jealous inferior women that hate other women that are happy, independent people that don’t feel the need to put down men in order to achieve their goals.

David Ehrenstein is a Hollywood writer who once wrote a book on the Velvet Underground in the 40's and 50's ..... when he was posting on Salon's "TableTalk" boards about eight or nine years ago, his tagline was "Gay PC Terrorist".

He and another gay poster on Salon got together to harass a conservative poster. They navigated to his family's website, scraped the guy's teenaged son's e-mail address, and sent the boy gay porn images to get to the old man, because they couldn't shake his principles and stout argumentation skills online. Somehow this stalking incident didn't violate Salon's community standards.

Later on, Ehrenstein combined with Michelangelo Signorile of The Village Voice and another rad gay of like mind to chase down Andrew Sullivan's online dating webpage and accuse Sullivan of hypocrisy for making dates online for unprotected sex ("barebacking"), after having written against the practice elsewhere. Another Ehrenstein tag line from that period: "Someday Andrew Sullivan's gonna end ...." The animus stemmed from Sullivan's conservatism on other issues than homosexuality, an inconsistency Signorile et al. found annoying.
