Skip to comments.Krauthammer's Allegiance To Useless Information
Posted on 06/01/2011 7:57:11 PM PDT by HMS Surprise
Im reminded of the movie The Bridge over the River Kwai. In the movie a British Colonel being held prisoner in Thailand by the Japanese leads his fellow POWs in the construction of a bridge for the enemy. Even though he knows that this is helping the Japanese war effort, his fondness for his accomplishment almost causes him to sabotage a commando raid to destroy the bridge.
RINOs and CINOs (conservatives in name only) like Krauthammer will let you kick the bridge, paint the bridge, and even spray graffiti on the bridge, but dont ever come calling with the intention of placing plastic explosives around the main supports; hell calmly explain that you just dont understand bridge policy.

Perhaps people were not quite so desperate, nor well informed, in those days.
I think it’s creepy that your thoughts are so obtuse.
Krauthammer is an ass , and an elite for golly good gosh goodness sake.
dude is definately crippled due to his past....still trying to find a word for it....
Criticism of Palin is accepted gladly. Start now.
We have all the “policy” we need in the Constitution.
My problem with Krauthammer et al is that they don’t really believe in a federal government that lives within the confines of the law i.e.: The Constitution.
Check #27... You read my mind.
If you look at “House Republicans” or “House Conservatives” employed by the liberal media (Krathammer, Will, Noonan, Brooks, Frum, etc.), they know exactly how long their leashes are and they don't like them getting yanked. They make good money, are “respected” by the “right people” on the cocktail party circuit and they reliably bash real conservatives, They may rail against government growth and spending but really don't want to end it as it would affect their buddies and upset the idyllic world in which they live.
Honcho makes an excellent point about Reagan and the near idolatry of Palin by the hard core supporters right now.
There seems to be some perceived infallibility of Palin. She is fallible just like every single one of our candidates and ourselves for that matter. The whole reason for Palin doing the 1 Million Dollar Rehab Movie is because she knows that she is in trouble and is taking steps to correct it. It may succeed or it may not. But going after people who see some genuine weakness in her alleged attempt for a run for POTUS is unwarranted.
Let's face facts. Right now Myth is by and large leading in money and the polls. I am going to do everything in my ability to make sure that he is a loser for the primaries. If Palin starts doing it, I will get behind her. If she fades and someone else is going to do it, I will back them. My goal is for the Conservative message to succeed, not one candidate in particular.
Life is good when you are connected in the Beltway. The buzz, the vibe, the creature comforts. Coming right out and saying that it’s all total bull... in front of God and Roger Ailes is not conducive to future contract negotiations. They already have one Judge Napalitono.
I also made a point regarding people who do not recognize inherent intelligence/goodness and prefer to be be led like sheeple to the slaughter.
Sarah is not perfect, but they don’t criticize her where she deserves it (no, I won’t elaborate), they always hit below the belt...
She can’t be trusted with nukes
She can’t win
She’s a moron
She’s not a policy wonk
She talks funny
None of the above bother me, in fact...
She can be trusted with nukes
She can win
She’s not a moron
She doesn’t need to know what makes Washington tick
She sounds like a real person
Krauthammer is Jewish.
He could make the same kind of excellent point by highlighting the obverse.
That makes it kind of a wash, which dilutes his excellent point... somewhat.
Charles is no Rush. Who cares what he pontificates.
That is a nugget of truth worth repeating.
He was always revered by conservatives. I was a flaming socialist before Carter and when Reagan was president, I turned into a solid conservative, even to the right of RR himself. He was never revered by the Washington establishment types like Krauthammer and Will, who looked upon him as a kindly old fool.
He was not revered by the insider Washington crew until the day of his funeral.
Of all the Candidates that are in the running, Palin is the most Reaganesque. Most of the fools that Krauthammer would support are Ford-Dolesque.
