Quote:
On Saturday, Pat Buchanan hosted a conference to discuss how Republicans can regain a majority in America. During one discussion, panelists suggested supporting English-only initiatives as a prime way of attracting “working class white Democrats.” The discussion ridiculed Judge Sotomayor for the fact that she studied children’s classics to improve her grammar while attending college. The panelists also suggested that, without English as the official language, President Obama would force Americans to speak Spanish.

One salient feature of the event was the banner hanging over the English-only advocates. The word conference was spelled “Conferenece.” View it here:

"Hmmm, how can we attract more voters, like those Democrats did with their immigrant minority demographics?"
"We could expand English-Only programs, that'll get us more working class white votes."
"... BRILLIANT! But I feel like we could be doing more..."
"Let's say that Obama is going to force us all to learn a second language!"
"I like your thinking, son."

Gah.









Gah.

Pat Buchanan is sort of amazing to watch, a relic of a darker era come forth from the mists of time to froth and spew upon our already deeply soiled cable news networks. It's like watching a dinosaur come to life, and then watching it take a giant steaming shit on your front lawn, over and over again.

i think it's most merciful (and an honest nod to the inevitable) to allow patrick to eventually die in ever-increasing obscurity.

and his employers along with him.

I love this strategy.

"Our plan isn't working anymore, what do we do?!"
"What if we did the same things we've always done... but we say Obama supports the exact opposite?"
"YES!"

Seriously, have we seen any new plans out of the myriad conferences and tours that have been focusing on rebuilding the GOP? Any?

This is all supposed to be "getting back to the core values." Which apparently means retreating further from center in the most boneheaded ways allowable.

Maybe they mean getting back to the core values of the southern democratic party circa 1950?

i think the really important question is, what sort of drugs are these people on?? i mean, this is totally, totally out of their nightmares - there is nothing whatsoever like this in anything obama, or the democrats in general, have ever said. it's like the ama doctor i heard on the radio this weekend, who was convinced that an obama health-care plan would include the government dictating every single procedure doctors could do. they are just feeding of their own rumor mill. and they seem to have forgotten that these are stories they, themselves, made up.

it's like reagan with his world war two memories that turned out to be from films he was in.


...although maybe if they share the drugs, they could get some support.....

NEEEEEEXT STORYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY

GOVERNOR MARK SANFORD, PREVIOUSLY A MAJOR PROSPECT FOR THE GOP's 2012 PRESIDENTIAL ASPIRATIONS

Seriously read this in progression, don't just skip to the punchline

The news two days ago:

Quote:
COLUMBIA, S.C. — South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford has been hiking along the Appalachian Trail, a spokesman said Monday night, explaining a dayslong absence that perplexed fellow state leaders.

Sanford hadn't been at work for several days and his office hadn't been in touch with him. The lieutenant governor, other fellow lawmakers and even his wife said they didn't know where he was, leading critics to question who was in charge of South Carolina.

"I cannot take lightly that his staff has not had communication with him for more than four days, and that no one, including his own family, knows his whereabouts," said Lt. Gov. Andre Bauer. Bauer said he'd been rebuffed by the governor's staff when he tried to find out where Sanford was.

The Republican governor left town on Thursday, his spokesman Joel Sawyer said, with plans to hike the trail, which passes through 14 states but doesn't cross South Carolina. Sawyer said he didn't know where exactly Sanford was along the 2,200-mile trail and declined to discuss Sanford's travel arrangements or who, if anyone, was hiking with him. The governor is expected back later this week.

"He's an avid outdoorsman," Sawyer said. "Nobody's ever accused our governor of being conventional."

Sanford, who's also chairman of the Republican Governors Association, earned a reputation as the nation's most vocal anti-bailout governor by refusing $700 million in federal stimulus money for schools until he lost a court battle earlier this month.

"He's just up there to kind of clear his head after the legislative session," Sawyer told The Associated Press in an interview. Sawyer wasn't aware that anyone on Sanford's staff had spoken to the governor since Thursday.


The news yesterday:

Quote:

Sanford's wife Jenny said she last talked to him on Thursday, and though she didn't know where he is, she said she wasn't concerned. She said he had left to have time to write.Joel Sawyer, communications director for the governor's office, then said the governor had been on the Appalachian Trail. Sawyer said staffers heard from Sanford on Tuesday morning and the governor plans to return Wednesday.Sawyer said the governor is surprised by all the attention.On Tuesday, sources told News 4's Nigel Robertson that a state vehicle is missing and was tracked down, not to the Appalachian Trail, but to the Hartsfield-Jackson Airport in Atlanta.Sources told Robertson that a federal agent spotted Sanford in the airport boarding a plane. Robertson was told that the governor was not accompanied by security detail.Sanford has been out of reach for more than four days, including Father's Day.Sawyer has emphasized that the governor was hiking on the Appalachian Trail and that it wasn't something the staff or Jenny Sanford were concerned about.But sources told WYFF News 4 that the federal agent who spotted Sanford saw him at the Atlanta airport, which is about 80 miles from the start of the trail.WYFF News 4 has not yet confirmed where the plane was going or how the governor got to the airport, but it is clear there are two very different stories.News 4 called the governor's office, and was told again by staffers that they stand by their original statement that the governor is hiking the Appalachian Trail. They did not want to comment on this story.


Then late yesterday

Quote:
A mystery has turned into a fiasco for South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford, who now says he was in South America — not on the Appalachian Trail, as his staff had said on the record in official statements when his whereabouts became the subject of global news coverage.

“I don’t know how this thing got blown out of proportion,” the governor told The State newspaper of Columbia, S.C., after he landed at the Atlanta airport Wednesday morning.

Sanford, a conservative Republican who had a promising future in national politics, is now not only the butt of jokes but has serious questions to answer about his stewardship of his state’s safety.

Other state officials say he made no arrangements for executive decisions in his absence, such as mobilizing the National Guard in case of catastrophe or advocating for the state with Washington if an emergency struck the coast.

Journalists covering the story had nearly universal doubts about the narrative put out by his office. The trail on the governor went cold at the Atlanta airport, which is not a logical place to go to start hiking the Appalachian Trail.


The news today:

Quote:
Gov. Mark Sanford arrived in the Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport on Wednesday morning, having wrapped up a seven-day visit to Buenos Aires, Argentina, he said.

Sanford said he had not been hiking along the Appalachian Trail, as his staff said in a Tuesday statement to the media.

Sanford admitted later Wednesday that his secret trip to Argentina over Father's Day weekend was to visit a woman he is having an affair with.

In Italy, no one would give a shit and he just might get a bump in the polls.

Do politicians in Italy ascribe to a platform that includes phrases like, "family values," and "moral majority?"
