Quotes of the day

posted at 11:14 pm on September 14, 2010 by Allahpundit

I just finished watching Karl Rove trashing GOP Senate primary winner Christine O’Donnell. It was on Sean Hannity’s FNC show. Might as well have been Olbermann on MSNBC. The establishment Beltway strategist couldn’t even bother with an obligatory word of congratulations for O’Donnell. He criticized her “character” and “rectitude” and claimed she hadn’t answered questions about her financial woes. She did so here. Rove mocked her security concerns as “nutty.” Yet, her concerns have been more than justified. See here.

Rove came across as an effete sore loser instead of the supposedly brilliant and grounded GOP strategists that he’s supposed to be. Expect more Washington Republicans to start sounding like Tea Party-bashing libs as their entrenched incumbent friends go down.

I should also state that when the cap and trade vote went down, Castle and Kirk were on my short list of horrible people who have to go from the Republican party. They were two of the Awful 8 that voted for cap & trade. Any word on Kirk now that Castle is gone?

Better than Lazio’s would have been, that’s for damned sure. As for your money, keep it. He’s a self-funder plugged in with very rich people. He doesn’t need money, he needs time. You’re better off sending it to Rossi or Angle, in my opinion.

KingGold on September 14, 2010 at 11:40 PM

I gotta say that I was really very surprised by Rove’s remarks on Hannity’s show. If I hadn’t been paying attention, I would have thought his comments were directed at some democrat opponent. To think that he has such profound feelings towards a candidate from his own party is really quite stunning.

I’m very disappointed in Rove tonight. I think posters here and elsewhere have it right, the ruling class simply cannot tolerate young interlopers entering their kingdom. They had better get used to it real quick!!

glennbo on September 14, 2010 at 11:40 PM

Eliteist Repubs have been content being the “Put Upon” victimy fools of American Political give and take withe the R’s being all Give, and hardly ever a Take. Democrats have gotten used to these “Eloi” giving themselves up at the sound of the Democrat “Morlocks” sounding the dinner bell.

But now… Now there’s an unwelcomed outsider influencing the “Eloi” and the Morlocks and the pussified Eloi not wanting to endure tough changes are infuriated that these outsider influences have arrived.

TFS baby. The future is here, and its a shidt sandwich and the establishment on both sides are gonna have to take their bite and chew for all its worth.

Swallow hard too.

Rove is a Northeastern Republican Party man who thinks that having any Republican in office is winning, and for them it is, they get Chairmanships, perks, power and big contributions.

Sadly for Rove and his ilk, many Republicans and Conservatives now understand that a Republican in office voting like a Democrat isn’t winning, for America, it’s losing.

I and many others are voting for America, not the Republican Party. The Republican Party better come to understand that very soon or Whig Party here they come.

So he voted against the idea that the government should dictate what goes on between two consenting adults? That is the conservative position, less government.

It’s “The Beltway” against America. It’s just that simple….really!
You fools just don’t get it! They and all their friends are really “The Best and the Brightest” and they have a right to rule. If you don’t believe it just ask’em and they’ll tell you, straight up.
“Big Government” and “Big Business” and “Big Labor” are all sitting up on the same mountain top looking down at all the rest of us. We are all of us the “Little People” and we all need to bear that in mind whenever we feel daring enough to address one of the “Anointed Ones”. Remove your cap and look down at the ground when speaking, you lout!

Look, Rove and Perino simply outed themselves. I’m actually rejoicing because now all can see what they really are about. As to Krauthammer, he’s been on my sh*t list since he told Palin to “leave the room.” Who the hell does he think he is? Gingrich lost me over his couch-sitting session with Pelosi and his endorsement of Scozzafava. What was that all about? I’ll tell you – it was about moderating the republican party to the left to supposedly garner more votes.

So, thanks for the advice, but I’m not inclined to “STOP IT ALREADY.”

Are you completely forgetting 2006? All the RINO Pigs feeding at the trough. Spending like drunken Sailors. Time to say to he$$ with you. We can not afford a repeat of 2006.

I have talked to Gingrich who told me he could get no backing for another Contract with America with all these RINO’s in office. We have to show them the door.

ESPN’s Boxing analyst, Teddy Atlas,frequently refers to the “silent contract” that fighters often come to in the ring. It’s a tacit agreement that the outcome is understood, just don’t inflict too much punishment. The GOP and Dems have had the same sort of thing going on for decades now. It’s time to elect some real fighters who don’t mind taking a shot now and then in order to win.

They thought the Tea Party movement was about defeating the agenda of Obama and the Democrats. And in many ways it is. But with all the damage that’s been done in the last 3 1/2 years, it’ll take more than a Republican majority to turn back the tide. It will require principled conservative leadership. And we know we’re not gonna get that with the likes of McCain and Grahamnesty leading the way.

In many ways both the repubs and rats are about PRESERVING POWER. Their power. Not the power of principles or the people, but their individual power and the power of their “unions”, their respective parties. Because look at this behavior…is this any different than union strong arm tactics to keep the workers in control? To benefit “legacy” and “seniority” without regard to merit or performance?

The Tea Party is what we need to demonstrate to these entrenched, union-operating, monopolies on both sides of the aisle that it is time to govern with AMERICA first in mind, true to the principles of this great republic.

I didn’t support O’Donnell because I don’t think she is a good candidate. But I for sure support her now that SHE HAS WON THE NOMINATION OF THE PARTY.

If she was a democrat, you would be SLAMMING these issues calling her a liar and many other names. She is going to be smeared BIGTIME, and some of them will be justified, because of her ridiculously spotty past. And these are the things we KNOW about.

thphilli on September 14, 2010 at 11:50 PM

Wow, all of those things are exactly like being the Grand Wizard of the KKK or molesting children, except that they’re not.

Rove is right on in his comments. O’Donnell is a kook and will end up embarassing the entire party before this is over.

bopbottle on September 14, 2010 at 11:49 PM

No he is NOT.

He is a LIAR.

All his “facts” were LIES.

Many, many, many college students have a hard time paying back their loans and he makes a Mountain out of that. Is he insane. He sure breathes different air than 90% of Americans.

She is worried about her Security. Boy sounds a lot like Obama. Bush and almost every other Politician who is the least bit controversial. I guess he is having a problem hiring a hit man to off her. Seriously he sounded like his prayers would have been answered if she had not taken security seriously and prevented her assassination.

Steveangell on September 14, 2010 at 11:54 PM

There needs to be minimum qualifications to be a senator, and O’Donnell hasn’t met them…not even close.

Chudi on September 14, 2010 at 11:46 PM

what…like a communitiy organizer or something?

katy on September 14, 2010 at 11:54 PM

If a person is not independently wealthy (Castle) doesn’t have a job that allows you to campaign full time while getting paid (Castle) or a spouse to fall back on, how do you expect her food and shelter to be paid for?

Cindy Munford on September 14, 2010 at 11:50 PM

Only our betters who have the time and elevated sensibilities to handle such things should be allowed into the halls of power. /s

The more you tighten your grip, Lord Rove, the more voters and elections will slip through your fingers.

My collie says:

Actually, Karl Rove is more like Rock Moranis in Space Balls.

CyberCipher on September 14, 2010 at 11:55 PM

CAN YOU HEAR US NOW, WASHINGTON?!?

See what I did there? I didn’t say DEMOCRATS. I didn’t say OBAMA. I didn’t even say REPUBLICANS.

*ALL OF WASHINGTON* MUST TAKE NOTICE OF THE TEA PARTY!

’bout friggin’ time, too!

You are an idiot. The examples I gave are extremes to illustrate the absurdity of your stance. You don’t care that someone is a liar and a cheat and has no qualms using campaign funds for personal gain, then by that logic, why not support those examples I gave?

thphilli on September 14, 2010 at 11:55 PM

The right will be as shocked as the left in Nov.

Schadenfreude on September 14, 2010 at 11:40 PM

That’s what I’m hoping for. The dopey Dems are just not in our sights. Rush has not been wrong since Nov. 5th, 2008. I’m checking in on him daily and pointing and laughing at Michael Medfraud!

Gob on September 14, 2010 at 11:55 PM

Its probably because she withdrew the funds and is shopping for a dope new ride.

thphilli on September 14, 2010 at 11:51 PM

so you castle lovers have moved from she’s a nut! to she’s a whore! well its progress I guess

unseen on September 14, 2010 at 11:55 PM

hell Castle milked taxpayers for millions gave his buddies sweet deals worth 100′s millions and you are worried about a freaking car payment. way to stay grounded…

unseen on September 14, 2010 at 11:52 PM

I thought supporting O’Donnell was all about principle.

If it’s about principle shouldn’t she be called to account for her bad behavior just like Castle for his? It’s the principle that counts, right?

Neither of these candidates was good. O’Donnell won. We need to unite behind her and win in November. That’s not gonna happen if you keep trashing people who supported Castle.

MikeknaJ on September 14, 2010 at 11:55 PM

Rove being upset that a nut was put into the race makes him some elitist, hm…

blatantblue on September 14, 2010 at 11:56 PM

Agreed. But he/she called Michelle Malkin an unprincipled imbecile.

John the Libertarian on September 14, 2010 at 11:50 PM

O’Donnell supporters really are nuts. Why don’t you go donate to her rent and car payment fund, instead of whining like a baby. The NRSC has taken a pass on that, so just shut the hell up.

Chudi on September 14, 2010 at 11:56 PM

How many more races do the Republican establishment types have to lose before they realize their endorsements are the kiss of death? Hehheheh

John Doe on September 14, 2010 at 11:56 PM

Chudi on September 14, 2010 at 11:46 PM

Minimum requirements per the Constitution:

No person shall be a Senator who shall not have attained to the Age of thirty Years, and been nine Years a Citizen of the United States, and who shall not, when elected, be an Inhabitant of that State for which he shall be chosen.

She did win the primary.

It wasn’t even necessary that Rove waxed enthusiastic, but wow!

How dare we expect people to have a JOB to support themselves. Just run for office again and steal the campaign money for personal gain. I swear you people are sounding so stupid right now.

Christien on September 14, 2010 at 11:56 PM

Heh. The Republicans thought we were out to just out the Democrats. They are just now realizing that Conservatives have taken over. If they disagree they get canned. This scares the hell out of the establishment. They thought they were irreplaceable. They are just getting it through their heads that all are easily replaceable.

A government of the people and by the people…at last?

All that BS they spout about don’t be the enemy of the perfect is a one way street. You see how Rinos act when the shoe is on the other foot.

kangjie on September 14, 2010 at 11:21 PM

Excellent point. It’s a bit sociopathic. “As long as you want exactly what I do, everything’s won-n-n-derful. If not, *&^% you, scum! Waaaah!” And it’s an all-out tantrum.
