There is absolutely nothing absurd about the comment. I’m a Mississippian. I’ve called some pretty awful names by northeast bigots who claim to be “conservative” Republicans; many on this forum.

You haven’t been here very long. Pay attention. You will learn a lot simply by reading and holding your ‘tongue’.
I don’t doubt what you say one bit, Islander7. But to say the GOP establishment hates Conservatives “as much as” the media still seems to be a stretch to me. I’ve been involved in, and have run campaigns, for many years.... I got the “political junkie” bug as a kid in 1960. I was the GOP District Chair and I worked for Jack Kemp in ‘88; hosted a breakfast for him. Yes, the George H. W. Bush folks were not in love with the Conservative wing who took the Party over in the State where I was living that year, but they did not “hate” us. Now, the media, they hate us. Now, let me say this...........
I will take your advice here on this website and listen and learn. But, I must say this: There are a lot of haters on both sides on the Party. The Conservative “purists” are mean as the Devil sometimes. I started out this year for Bachmann and/or Santorum. But, perusing political websites, I saw that the candidates and their supporters were so nasty, I switched to Newt; even with all his baggage. I saw it in the Pat Robertson supporters in ‘88 as well. So, there are plenty of haters in all political camps.
Enjoy the day!!!
