Skip to comments.Rush: Ever see Republicans fight Democrats the way they fight Palin, Christine O'Donnell or Angle?

RUSH: Okay, so The Chicago Boyz blog explaining that it's the threat to status, status anxiety that causes elitists of all ideological stripes to oppose people like Sarah Palin, Christine O'Donnell, Sharron Angle, any number of them. Then there's a Legal Insurrection blog with a poster named Bill Jacobson who's associate clinical professor of law at Cornell who goes even further. He says: "The 'nuts and sluts' defense is a common employment law tactic whenever a female employee brings a claim. It doesn't matter what the claim is, the defense -- after the usual legal mumbo jumbo -- will be something like this: 'She's nuts. And by the way, pssst, she may be a slut.' That is the mode of attack Democrats use against conservative women.
Sarah Palin is the prime example, as she routinely is called crazy and is sexualized by the left." Yeah, Nikki Haley in South Carolina, she's a slut. She's loose. Now stick with me on this because this is how the left always goes out and attacks conservative women and some elite conservatives in the blogosphere and the Republican Party do the same thing. Yet guess who's always silent? The feminazis. The feminazis are never upset.
Now, Bill Clinton and Carville called Paula Jones trailer trash. Carville said: (imitating Carville) "You never know what you're gonna get when you drag a dollar bill through a trailer park. ha-ha-ha-ha." It worked for Clinton. Used it on Lewinsky, too. "The nuts part of the attack is being used against Christine O'Donnell in Delaware by the local Republican establishment..." this is from the Legal Insurrection blog, "...and also by two leading conservative magazines, The Weekly Standard and National Review.
If O'Donnell is so nuts," the blogger asks, "why did the Delaware Republican Party nominate her to run against Joe Biden just two years ago? If O'Donnell wins tomorrow, you can be sure that the Democrats will seize on the nuts attack from Republicans, and take it to the next step by sexualizing O'Donnell (it already has started). By signing on to the nuts defense directed at conservative women, the Republican establishment has adopted the most pernicious line of Democratic Party attack."
One of the ways they talk about Castle is, "I am not 'anti-Mike Castle,' but I do have a problem with someone who was willing to destroy the economy by signing on to Nancy Pelosi's cap-and-trade plan." There are people attacking Castle that way, but the point is they're doing it on his issues; they're doing it on his ideas. Nobody is out there calling him names. "The vigorous attacks on Castle have been focused almost exclusively on his record and policy prescriptions.
Almost none of the attacks on O'Donnell focus on her policies or political agenda," which, if you've been paying attention, is true. Not one attack on Christine O'Donnell because of what she believes.
No, she sued a think tank, got the IRS after her, other personal attacks they're going after her with. That's why I keep saying I guess Mike Castle is clean and pure as the wind-driven snow; he doesn't have any baggage. There's not a person in the country that could run for office that doesn't have any baggage. So something of note here and it's going to be interesting to see if O'Donnell does win tomorrow, to look at the Republican establishment and see how they react to it. If they're being true to form now, they will not support her. They simply won't.
RUSH: Washington Post today. In Delaware, GOP comes out swinging against Tea Party. The Delaware Republican Party chairman in this article essentially says, if you want a conservative committee chair, step back and allow Castle to become the next senator. If you -- in other words, the Republican chairman saying, we don't have a chance with this O'Donnell woman. You want a conservative in the Senate, go Castle. But he's not. He's not a conservative. That's the fault line.
RUSH: I really find this fascinating. If you will indulge me here for just a mere moment, Washington Post: "In Del., GOP Comes Out Swinging Against Tea Party." And here's the Republican Party chairman of Delaware, Tom Ross: "Quite frankly, I don't know what the goal is here. If they really want to see conservatives as chairmen of committees in the United States Senate, they'd step back and allow Mike Castle to become the next United States senator." Now, what's amazing about this is I think it's a tremendous tribute to everyday people in this country that everybody running for office is trying to convince everybody else that they're the most conservative in the race. And yet the RINO moderates know full well what they have to do to win. They have to go out and sound conservative, talk about being conservative, when they aren't. We never see Republicans fight the Democrats the way they're fighting their own.
Have you ever seen the Republicans fight against the Democrats the way they're fighting against Palin, the way they fight against Christine O'Donnell or Sharron Angle? You don't.
Who knew the GOP could actually fight for keeps?
If McCain trashed Obama like he did Hayworth, he’d be in the WH.
RINOS= Spineless, girly men.
Rush is right....Republicans actually do fight...when it comes to their own who don’t fit in their mode, I’m sorry but some here have been attacking O’Donnell personally as well as Sarah, Nikki Haley and some what Angle...why is that? is it sexist? or is it much deeper?
Yep, and tonight Kraut said “vote for Castle”!
Of course he also said the town halls were rude..and the tea parties would amount to nothing.
To his credit he has since said he called it wrong.
It’s the American people against the Ruling Class.
This fight is just beginning.
Why would McCain trash Obama? They both work for George Soros.
“Who knew the GOP could actually fight for keeps?”
They’ve always fought for keeps. But *only* against conservatives. They’ve already got an “arrangement” with the left. It’s the conservatives who threaten their cozy little hegemony.
When are the GOP elites going to realize that they need to surrender now to the conservatives in the party or the conservatives will break away & form a new party? Don’t they realize THEIR actions, if successful, will destroy the GOP?
We conservatives will not back off so they better wake up before it’s too late.
Because the MSM doesn't say bad things about them while they're doing it.
The conservatives are no longer talking they are yelling with a 500 Megawatts bullhorn and that scares the hell out of the elites.
‘Power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely’ - They can’t let it go...it’s like a disease.
And don’t forget, Kraut told Sarah Palin to “leave the room”.
They are all big pals......members of that prestigious elitists club called congress.
The way they act, if liberals were a spouse in family court, they would be losing custody of the kids.
You betcha....that was my point....eerily Rush could have been talking about some on FR
A Good Post and “I agree!!!” BTTT !!!!!!
