Rules for Radical Republicans

November 15th, 2013 - 3:04 pm

“Reporters covering Sarah Palin book-signing are locked in a room at Walmart,” Jim Romensko reports, shocked, shocked! that a former vice presidential candidate would dare to lock reporters into a closet while giving a speech.

But the reporters themselves shouldn’t be, since that’s exactly what Joe Biden’s aides have been reported doing to journalists on at least one occasion, when he wasn’t barking “don’t screw with me!” in response to tough questions, and ordering them to delete photos they took of events.

If that behavior is acceptable to Biden’s fellow Democrats with bylines, then it should also be acceptable to reporters covering a former vice presidential nominee as well. Particularly when Biden serves under a president who has been praised by the son of Saul Alinsky, the author of Rules for Radicals, which states, “make the enemy live up to its own book of rules,” “a good tactic is one your people enjoy,” and “ridicule is man’s most potent weapon.”

Bet Sarah Palin knows Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals as well? Me too.

And considering that John Nance Garner once described his stint as vice-president under FDR as not being worth “a bucket of warm spit” — with that last word a paraphrase — get the feeling that Palin is having as much more fun these days than the actual vice president? Me too.

Almost as much fun as Bill Whittle is having as “Mr. Virtual President.”

Say, a Whittle-Palin ticket? Wouldn’t that be a breath of fresh air compared to the two failed Democrats we’re currently stuck with?

No no no! Palin-Whittle! Palin outranks Bill Whittle in that she already has chief executive experience, and Bill Whittle has never served in public office. He would make a good second in command, though.

Whittle/Palin or Palin/Whittle -- either one would work for me. Much better than Dumb and Dumber who currently hold the job.

You're on the right track, Ed but, I think a Mike Rowe / Bill Whittle ticket is a guaranteed winner.

Yes, but then again you could throw a rock out the window and hit two people who would better than our current clown show.

Bill Whittle running for President?

That is like a fantasy - a sensible, intelligent, DECENT human being running for President?

I'm sorry. It IS a fantasy. As much a fantasy as there being an actual electoral system that would enable him to run and be voted in as President.

Instead, we have a tragic theater designed to make us feel like we have some voice in this tyranny. Instead, we have the reality that will see Her Royal Highness Hillary anointed as our second Imperial President.

Our government has become a circus with way too many clowns, and not enough tigers.
