The core of Ann’s response to this painful juncture in American history — when our idiot leftist president is not just shooting himself in the foot but standing on our necks while he does it — may be paraphrased as: If unity is the price of victory, pay it. The disaster of Obamacare — not the crappy website, but the law itself — is not going to go away by magic. We need to acquire enough votes to dismantle it and create something better. Therefore, it’s time to stop the tea party primaries against good-enough Republicans. Stop the feuds on principle that cost us practical victories. Acquire enough votes in the House and Senate to make the presidency redundant, and stop these useless leftist fools from doing us more harm. Every penny spent on internecine warfare is money taken away from defeating our destructive opposition.
If you don’t think she’s serious, Ann even said she would vote for John McCain if she had to. And whatever you think of McCain, she thinks it twice, unless it’s positive, in which case it never occurred to her.
More of her thinking in her own words can be found in this column.
Painful as this medicine is, I think she’s right: we’ve got to take it. This Titanic of an administration is going down. We are the lifeboats we’ve been waiting for. This is no time to punch holes in one another with self-defeating feuds, no matter how well-intentioned.
