@blatham,
I rarely watch the news but when I can't get local news, I will pick Fox over the other cable news outlets. Why? Because watching CNN is like watching a bunch of sheeple drinking the Koolaid. They are so biased they don't even give "fair and balanced" a chance. They could at least put a conservative pundit on there once in awhile and shout him or her down, but no, their "panel of experts" never fails to include four ultra-liberals and Wolf Blitzer.

What a joke. Talk about wanting to run away screaming - this is another reason to hate airport lounges!

@cjhsa,
Not a fan of Bay Buchanan? She's a regular on the conservative side of the pundocracy at CNN.

Buchanan was the national treasurer of the Reagan for President primary campaigns of 1976 and 1980, and the Reagan-Bush general election campaigns of 1980 and again in 1984.[3] After appearing regularly on CNN's news program "Inside Politics", she became a commentator for CNN's The Situation Room, and later, CNN's Election Center with Campbell Brown.

Quote:
Buchanan managed her brother Pat Buchanan's three unsuccessful campaigns for President of the United States.

In 1990, Buchanan ran unsuccessfully in the California Republican primary election for state treasurer.

In May 2006, Bay Buchanan was appointed chair of Team America PAC, a political action committee founded by Tom Tancredo. The mission of this PAC is to highlight the problems created by illegal immigration, and to support candidates for public office who are committed to securing the borders of the United States against illegal immigration. In 2007, Bay served as senior advisor to Tancredo's presidential campaign, after which she publicly endorsed Mitt Romney. A frequent speaker on college campuses and at major conservative events, Bay is affiliated with the Clare Booth Luce Policy Institute and Young America's Foundation.

Buchanan is president of The American Cause, and her brother Pat Buchanan is chairman.


I'd have thought she'd be your kind of conservative.

@ehBeth,
If I may comment on that:
I don 't know her well.
I know her brother too well.
Altho I admired that he was on our side during the Third World War,
I don 't care for his social alleged "conservatism"
to the extent that it flirts with theocracy.

The Founders were NOT theocrats.
Thay founded a secular nation.
Pat Buchanan is not as much of an Individualist libertarian as I prefer.

Definitely easier to read.

Use of font size, bolding and color are supposed to
be helpful in understanding my meaning,
by laying stress upon, and bringing out the main points.

When u speak to someone,
he does not speak in a monotone,
devoid of vocal intonations, inflexions and manual gestures,
body language or facial expressions. These devices endeavor
to substitute for these missing aids to communication.

I think that thay make reading faster,
in that u can more easily see the high points.

A few decades ago, when I was studying for tests in law school,
I made it a point to mark n color the most important language
in common law and in statutes; I had a hierarchy of value
coded into the marks that I applied to indicate the importance
of areas of statutory text or judicial decisions;
(round parenthesis, square brackets, French Braces, colored stars).

Review was tremendously aided and accelerated,
resulting in good memorization n good test results.
I got used to it.

As a further note on what I'd just written...
Here's a relevant piece from the NY Times today. I suppose one aspect we ought to tease apart is the difference between the set of those who normally vote Republican and the people who actually wield power within the contemporary RNC.

Quote:
Whether the Republican presidential ticket wins or loses on Tuesday, a group of prominent conservatives are planning to meet the next day to discuss the way forward, and whatever the outcome, Gov. Sarah Palin will be high on the agenda.
http://www.nytimes.com/2008/10/29/us/politics/29palin.html?_r=2&partner=rssnyt&emc=rss&oref=slogin&oref=slogin

Two names come up prominently in this piece; Morton Blackwell [url]http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Morton_Blackwell and Brent Bozell http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/L._Brent_Bozell_III[/url]

Though not named here, one can assume Kristol will be part of this group as well given that he was (according to the credible reporting on this I can find) a prime individual responsible for getting Palin on the ticket.

ps...each of these guys (and the folks they are connected with) are serious ideologues out of the extremist right and are adept organizers.

@blatham,
So where did Eshelman flee to? Did he flee to the non-working class black neighborhoods where the welfare lines are long and the crack pipe is always half empty?

@blatham,
Well, u drive a hard bargain;
but I do want those unexamined assumptions,
so I 'll see what I can do. I 'll have to act fast tho,
since I lost my mother about 40 years ago.

This usually works:
I armed myself with a .38 revolver (Smith & Wesson Model 36)
when I was 8, and took it with me everywhere for years until I upgraded.
I advocate training in the safe and accurate use,
care n maintenance of firearms in elementary schools,
along side math, swimming and fonetic spelling.

Tho candor moves me to confess that I do support the safety net
(not to emulate death from starvation in the streets like India or China)
I fervently oppose almost all social welfare programs
(tho I eagerly support the Space Program).

I support repeal of all income taxation,
leaving government to be funded from sales taxes
at the same rate for everyone, except that above a certain level
u shoud be deemed to have already paid for all that government
can give u, so that u r immune from further taxation.

Need I say more ???

Now, presuming your answer to be negative,
what are those unexamined assumptions of mine
that I got from the radio ?

@OmSigDAVID,
David, I'm not planning to study, or memorize, any posts at Able2Know.

I find that bolding makes things very difficult to read on this site. The level of contrast is problematic for me. Bolding in a post usually means I have to down-thumb it without stopping to read it.

Social conservatives fight for control of Republican Party
The right flank is positioning to change the GOP's leadership and direction -- even if John McCain wins the presidency. Some moderates fear such a shift would alienate more voters.
By Peter Wallsten
October 28, 2008
Reporting from Washington -- The social conservatives and moderates who together boosted the Republican Party to dominance have begun a tense battle over the future of the GOP, with social conservatives already moving to seize control of the party's machinery and some vowing to limit John McCain's influence, even if he wins the presidency.

In skirmishes around the country in recent months, evangelicals and others who believe Republicans have been too timid in fighting abortion, gay marriage and illegal immigration have won election to the party's national committee, in preparation for a fight over the direction and leadership of the party
