Before we just say “the fuck with it” and resign ourselves to live through being a EUnuch all over again, it’s not like we didn’t survive it the first time.
We know that we’re going to hear a lot of “give them time”, “Rome wasn’t built in a day”, “their hearts are pure but their powers limited” etc., and we also know that we’ve heard it all before. Remember: We lived through this sad theatre once before, you didn’t.
Here’s something that struck us: The only two places in the country where we’ve seen some actual results, some actual hope and change, has been in New Jersey and Wisconsin. Yes, we know that the Usual Suspects of the RINOglican Party of Stupid are already working on handing the DemCong victory from the jaws of defeat in Wisconsin, but nevertheless. New Jersey and Wisconsin have been the only two places where we’ve even seen a hint of the will to stare down and face down the encroachment of the Imperial Socialist State.
Not exactly two bastion states of conservatism, are they?
But hey, all of the freshmen from the traditionally conservative states are “saying all the right things”, it’s just that their follow through is about as convincing as Bill Clinton saying “I’ll only stick it in a little.”
His Majesty has had his fill three times over listening to weather wanes sticking their fingers in the polls before they as much as take a shit, and he KNOWS, unlike most of you, where that leads. From bitter experience.
We’re not suffering, as a nation, of a lack of the right ideas, we’ve got ideas coming out of the poop chute. We’re suffering from a lack of leaders who believe in those ideas enough to stand by them, even if it means the potential of a disapproving editorial in the New York Times.
An idea, a principle, only becomes a principle when you’re willing to stand by it no matter WHAT. Until then, it’s nothing but hot air. And if you’re looking for hot air, Greece is fucking WONDERFUL this time of year.
UPDATE: The Imperial Library Czar points out, correctly, that we failed to mention the good Jan Brewer of Arizona who has done a stellar job of pissing on the Ogabe Junta’s agenda. Our apologies to the honorable Governor Brewer and a hearty Imperial: KEEP UP THE GOOD FIGHT!
