There is a bizarre, sophomoric "rah-rah yay team" dynamic in our culture whereby if the guy presented as being on "Team D" with the donkey mascot holds a position the "Team R" fans boo, while if the guy presented as being on "Team R" with the elephant mascot does exactly the same thing, the "Team R" people cheer.
My theory is that this is all a byproduct of the sports culture. People are trained to root for "their team", no matter who the men are that are playing on the team. So, saying "I'm a Cowboys fan" or "I'm a Red Wings fan" or "I'm a Knicks fan" is the same thing mentally as "I'm a Republican." It doesn't matter who the players are, and players get moved around and traded. It doesn't matter if a player gets accused of rape, or beating his girlfriend or gang-banging. So long as he is presented as being on "my team", all is forgiven and we root for "our team." Most importantly, it doesn't matter how BAD a team is. You are still expected to root for "your team" no matter how awful they are.
This twisted gang mentality, I am convinced, has been put in place and pushed by the Marxist infiltrators not just to provide a substitute masculinity so that all of the psychologically castrated men in society have a benign outlet for what remaining vestiges of masculinity they yet harbor, but also to condition people to this ridiculous "yay-team" mindlessness.
The reason you don't hear me talking much about the "election" is because I'm, frankly, beyond all of that. It is pretty clear that it is all fixed, and is nothing more than theater to maintain the illusion that this is somehow still a functioning representative republic.

I hold out hope that if the Lord isn't to return in the next few years that the remaining God-fearing people of the United States will hold sway and engage the evil forces in the U.S. political system.
We must be honest with ourselves, recognize evil and stand against it. Being on a "team", only servers to distract, unless that team is defined as those who pursue truth with honor and integrity and that hold those who don't do so accountable.
The mascot is not a donkey, it’s a jackass.
I do however hold out hope that the Tea Party can make inroads and at least start to reverse the tide. With a few exceptions, the current crop of Rs+Ds need to be thrown out on their asses.
Looks like Allen is seeking a refund for his illuminati puppet theater ticket.
Who is this "Allen" you are referring to? Steve Allen, the deceased comedian? Former Coach Allen of the Redskins? The late Gracie Allen?
Or do you mean ALAN Keyes, the former ambassador?
At least try to be coherent, okay?
Dig them KuhRayZee Eyes!
There is a difference between the two parties, maybe not as much as we like, but it is still a difference.
However, numbers of "smart guys" have been saying since 2007 that the RiNO's never wanted the White House again after Bush's term, considering that whoever was in office when the roof finally came in (Hillary, they hoped) would be the next Herbert Hoover. That's what this McCainiac/Romniac diffidence is all about. The RiNO/GOP-e are trying to catch a bottom and don't want the Oval Orifice until the corner's been turned and the bottoms are all in place.
“Most importantly, it doesn’t matter how BAD a team is. You are still expected to root for “your team” no matter how awful they are.”
I can picture two UAW guys duking it out in the parking lot at the bar because one guy thinks his Ford truck is better than the other guy’s Chevy...and they’re not even drunk yet!
Not to be confused with Donkey Kong
Exactly how I feel. It's over. We're done. God has removed his hand of protection over the US because our government and culture has done it's best to remove God from our lives. As prophesied we will go into captivity, either physical or economic.
Alan Keyes has been going over into full blown kook mode for a while. Just like Peggy Noonan and others, Keyes has to thrash about making lots of KOOK noise to get attention. The narcotic of fame is so powerful that they must do more outlandish "stuff" to get a little bit more attention and hence another "fix".
WHY THE HELL CAN'T ALL THESE "HAS-BEENS" FADE AWAY GRACEFULLY?
Alan Keyes is a loser. We should not be taking advise from a loser like him.
First time I have read Barnhart’s blog.
Alan Keyes may have lost an election but he is no loser. At least he knows how to spell ADVICE.
No, Alan Keyes is not a loser.
Once when this website was young and struggling, he wrote an EXCELLENT letter defending Free Republic.
(And yes, he can spell! LOL)
Go watch her videos...you are in for a treat!
Plenty of folks around here were just peachy when it was Dubya with an “R” by his name doing the massive spending.
Sorry, I don’t take advice from losers with a holier than thou attitude..
My strong Catholic parents were another example. They grew up under FDR and remained loyal to the party into their eighties. No amount of pro-abortion actions by Dems could sway them. But strangely, now that he's approaching 93, my father has indicated he's an independent. Which I guess is progress of a sort.

These two. Real life SNL characters.
However, I can’t help but love her koran with the bacon bookmarks!
That is interesting, you should make an effort to look for an explanation. If you find out anything interesting, tell us about it.
