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.
DeMint just answered Krauthammer on Mark Levin's show and before he was done, he PRAISED Sarah Palin!
I'm with onyx...she should ditch the glasses once in a while just to drive the libs off the cliff. :)
I want her to ditch her glasses from time to time, just to put that Tina Fey hag out of business. See pic below of her getting her done in April of this year:
“BTW, very disappointed with Krauthammer. Apparently he blasted Palin this evening for the O’Donnell endorsement and said to vote for Castle.”
I didn’t hear it. The Kraut is thoroughly unreliable in my view. Power is his only real interest, and it is what drives him. He is too much of an elitist ever to appreciate the populist appeal of a Palin or an O’Donnell. He only appreciated Reagan AFTER Reagan had the power. Before that, he was a speechwriter for Fritz the pits.
Onyx, I hate to admit it but she looks great without them.
Well I’m not suprised by Kraut. I stop listen to him over two years ago after his first put down concerning Gov. Palin. He is a latent sexist.
I’ve thought for awhile that more then a few Republican office-holders are folks that couldn’t hack the ladder climb in the Democrat Party. So they joined the Republican Party to climbs theirs.
Good for DeMint but I still expect him to firmly support an establishment candidate for 2012, probably Romney (who he backed last time) or Mitch Daniels, if he runs. DeMint also said not too long ago that Jeb Bush would be the best Republican choice for 2012 if he decided to run.
And very young! I just want to her to ditch them on a very few occasions and only to put that Tina Fey hag out of business.
Nobody can look like her without her glasses. Nobody!
She's too stunningly beautiful.
Al, I posted the very same thing, (Romney) and Romney has already thrown a fund raiser for DeMint, but in singing praises for Sarah, DeMint also credited Sarah for Nikki Haley and pointed out that Nikki is going to make a fine governor for his state!
That pic onyx posted of Sarah without her glasses on. Sarah has a devilish look in her eyes. You can tell Sarah really didn’t want that pic taken but she allowed it to happen.
‘BTW, very disappointed with Krauthammer. Apparently he blasted Palin this evening for the O’Donnell endorsement and said to vote for Castle.’
“In 1978, Krauthammer quit medical practice to direct planning in psychiatric research for the Jimmy Carter administration, and began contributing to The New Republic magazine. During the presidential campaign of 1980, Krauthammer served as a speech writer to Vice President Walter Mondale.”
Yes she is.
Demint know better than to dump on Sarah. I’m sure he has seen what happens to those who do that.
Most of Sarah’s and Demint’s supporter crossover with each other.
Does she? She’s smiling, rather sweetly, yes?
Especially on Mark Levin's show. Demint knows Levin is very high on Palin.
Yep, Charles lets his libtard background seep out once in a while. He really doesn’t mind “moderates” in the Republican party. I think he thinks they have a place in the hallowed Senate, whereas I do not.
Yes she does. I have seem another Photo just like this one and Sarah had the same look in her eyes. :)
It’s one of those “Oh sh!t you caught me without my glasses on” pics.
Chuck thinks like a dim... he writes like a dim... and he speaks like a dim... you decide.
McCain was gentle with Obama because he’s black.
