Birthers, 'baggers and other bozos

Posted By on Sat, Sep 12, 2009 at 10:08 AM

The Washington Post reports that the Republican Party has a strategy. It will embrace the idea of being the party of protest. Not ideas. Not solutions. Just protest. All anti-government, anti-Obama all the time. Bigwig Repubs will be greeting 'baggers on a march in Washington today. Not all are sanguine about it:

Mark McKinnon, a former adviser to  Sen. John McCain (Ariz.) and other Republicans, said there is an "opportunity for Republicans" to tap into legitimate fears about an overreaching federal government. But he said that "right-wing nutballs are aligning themselves with these movements" and are dominating media coverage.

"It's bad for Republicans because in the absence of any real leadership, the freaks fill the void and define the party," McKinnon said.

Yes. How sweet it is. The party of Joe.
