Meltdown

Tony Blankley is getting hysterical. He's literally comparing conservatives who want to stay home on election day in protest of a party they don't support to those who want to consume feces on election day to protest a party they don't support. Anyway, in case folks were wondering who'd be the first Republican pundit to crack, Blankley's your man.

Wow. Yeah, calling conservatives voters idiots (and being wrong to boot) is a great way to rally them.

Tony Blankley is GETTING hysterical? Clearly, it's been a while since you've read or seen him.

Must admit, though, that he makes me hysterical when I watch him - his clothing choices would drive anybody crazy.

Ahh, the pretty cheerleader and the nerd metaphor. I don't even buy that one, nonetheless allow Blankley to use it to justify his feces-eating comparison.

Sad to see Blankley go first, but I took George Will and the spread. If Will cracks within the next twelve days, then I'll cover. C'mon, George! You can do it!

Oh, and I love this quote: "The Democrats are obviously heartless."

Yes, it is self-evident. Tra-la!

I don't blame anyone - conservative or liberal - for trying to rally their voters. No one should "just stay home" rather than vote; voting is an important part of being a citizen and I know I have voted in every major election since I turned 18. It's unfortunate to see so much coverage of people choosing to stay home as if, simply for partisan advantage, that would be okay.

I think conservatives are perplexed because the turnoff factor (of corruption, Foley, the immigration issue and others) has caight them off guard and unprepared. And that has everything to do with a slow dawning realization, especially among the "true believers" that the party has made mistakes that can't just be explained away.

I can't fault Blankley - he's a smart man, even if I don't agree with him, and he was very brave in calling for Hastert's resignation immediately and not backing down in his view that the Foley scandal could do his party in. He's a good doobie now, trying to make the best of a bad situation; but he's also a realist, and he can see the disaster ahead. This article is a tacit admission of how bad the situation looks. I expect post election, if it's as bad as it looks now for the GOP, that Blankley will lead the way in intelligent soul-searching about what went wrong.
