I am in D.C. at CPAC (co-sponsored by Pajamas Media) and just got finished being a guest on the "Washington Tea Party" panel hosted by Michelle Malkin, Kellyanne Conway, Mary Anne Marsh and Jeri Thompson. I talked about taxpayers going "John Galt" and the psychology of fear in response to the financial crisis. The audience was terrific and supportive and there was a great turn-out. Fred Thompson came on to talk about the stimulus and other issues.

You can watch the show here--just click on the segment with my name.

What about Ralph Nader, Ron Paul, Bob Barr, Chuck Baldwin, and even Cynthia Mckinney? They all opposed this "stimulus" phoney. Never mind, they ain't Republicans or they ain't Republican enough, right?

I find it curious that the Republicans come out of the woodwork when the Democrats are spending money we don't have, but remained strangely silent when they chose to spend a trillion dollars on the Iraq war and 350 billion bailing out corrupt bankers. It's a day late and a dollar short to get me worked up at this point. Keep the tea out of the Potomac, it's polluted enough.

Fred Thompson? He arrived in a big way on the scene in the last election and faded so quickly. Not sure why this fade took place. Anyone explain?

Frederick, you fail to understand that Nader, Paul and Barr are all hypocrites of the first order. They may oppose the stimulus, but they're amongst the first in line to pile on pork or advocate it being piled on. Paul and Barr claim to be conservative and libertarian respectively, but their actions and even words are those of socialist liberals.

If there is any one thing we can learn from Obama, but won't, is that it doesn't matter what a politician says, but what they do. (McCain claimed to be a conservative, but he's nothing of the sort--he's a McCain-ite and that's about all you can say BASED ON HIS ACTIONS.)

Hi Joe,

Listen. I proudly voted for Richard Nixon twice and Ronald Reagan twice. I didn't bother with 1976 or 1988 since we had bozo campaigns on both sides. I didn't take the Democrats as anything close to fiscal conservatism but was angry at the way Reagan went out of his way on defense spending and Iran contra although I commend him for trying to control some of the wasteful spending. I voted twice for Perot and thrice for Nader. Perot and Nader both warned us of continuing the sellout policies of both parties and lo behold they were right. Maybe I'm a different kind of 3rd party looney tune but if anyone's looking for anything close to real conservatism, forget the Republicans just like I tell the other side to forget the Democrats if they're looking for real liberalism. Of course, I have nothing to lose voting independent out here in South Carolina. Call the third parties hypocrites of the first order but I'm long tired of the emptiness of those two major parties.

On Tuesday Bobby Jindal was the new leader of the Republican Party, yesterday it became Rush Limbaugh. It's more sad than funny.

This is why I left the Republican Party in 1992. Bush/Quayle gagged even more than did Nixon/Agnew IMO. I was a strong supporter of Buchanan in 1992 although I didn't like his take on race but after that I gave it up and Perot started looking more interesting. He should have stayed put in the race instead of getting in and out. We could have had him instead of Clinton for 8 years. Right now, neither party really plans to pay down the national debt and we're not far off from being shackled to China as we keep borrowing and "free" trading with them. Nader and Barr were the only fiscally responsible candidates although I chose Nader for consistency. If it takes taxing the uber-wealthy at 90% and reducing our war spending by 90% in addition to shutting off the bailout spiggots to pay down this god damned national debt so that our children, grandchildren, and so forth can give us a smiling thank you, I say let's do it.

When the Republican Party can put forth a younger and more intelligent Ronald Reagan, I'll come back but I'm afraid I'll be too old and creeky to walk to the polling booth by then.

I too was a Republican once, I left the party in the mid 80s. It's nice to know I am not the only one that is concerned abut the borrowing from China, but you and me are probably the only 2 out of 300 million. I listened to that Limbaugh speech and feel it is just a matter of time before the Republicans start passing out the armbands and teach themselves to goosestep.

No, if you want real fascism, you have to look to the liberals. The biggest difference between a liberal and a fascist is that liberals don't wear jackboots.

Larry J,

Fascism is not limited to one ideology or the other. It's those who abuse it to their own ends regardless of the ideology they're in. In some ways the liberals can act fascist while in other ways the conservatives can act just as fascist. It all boils down to the issues. For example, on the issue of gun rights, I trust the conservatives. On the issue of prison reform because I hate to see my tax dollars go towards a prison system that jails non-violent offenders indefinitely all the while letting out the violent ones or even drunk drivers on parole sooner, I'd go liberal.

There isn't one. Not even in the wings. Colin Powell hit the nail smack on the head when he derided the influence of people like Limbaugh.

As long as the Republicans/GOP/conservatives allow themselves to be branded by tree-stump-stupid morons like Sarah Palin, divisive ideologues like Sean Hannity, Ann Coulter and Bill O'Reilly and act as they're proud of the religious right...

...they will continue to make it publicly embarrassing to call yourself a Republican/GOP/conservative.

I've been conservative all my life, but I'm sick of having to explain the sanctimonious religious hypocrites, or the hate-mongering blowhards whose only interest is the sales of their embarrassing books.

Give me Thomas Sowell any day. The rest are nothing but skinhead pinups.

You hit the nail on the head, Kevin. The problem with Limbaugh is that his allegiance is to the success of his production company and to his advertisers, not the American people. He has to give his fan base what they want or what fuels them, rather than considering what is best for America. The same can be said for Sean Hannity and Bill O'Reilly. I'm not totally sure the pundits completely agree with some of the comments that come out of their own mouths.

Our government is based on a 2 party system. I'm glad the Democrats are in power but I am aware that we need another party for balance. The Republican party is splintering right now, it still has a few members that have the best interest of the country at heart, and the rest are morphing into something that would make Adolph Hitler proud.

The 2010 election isn't too far away, I hope they can get it together by then.

I don't like O'Reilly, but the biggest thing I like about Rush is his off the wall sense of humor. By the way, his production company and advertisers ARE American people. Consider this: Loving Rush / Hannity / Levin, hating Rush / Hannity / Levin, listening to Rush,, or changing the station doesn't cost you a dime of tax money. This blog doesn't either. I don't bitch much about the lefty blogs or the lefty radio hosts on late at night, because I don't listen to them. They have nothing for me. I don't go there. That's what cracks me up about you, Cham, coming in here all the time. It's like me being a regular at Huffington Post or something. I'd rather eat worms. Of course - and you know it is true - you can come in here with opposing views and have a great discussion about things. My going to Huffington or Kos, on the other hand, goes without saying.

One could just as easily say that Alan Colmes, Bill Maher, and the NYT put their profits ahead of what's good for the country. What a silly argument.

I find it both disturbing and amusing how easy people on the left throw the "Hitler" tag at those on the right.

Disturbing because Hitler was a diabolical murderer, and no one in Washington--republican or democrat--deserves to be lumped in with him, even if it is just to say "he'd be proud."

Annoying because they are so marinated in propaganda that they have no clue that Hitler was a leftist. I repeat the above, Democrats don't deserve to be associated with the murderer any more than republicans do, but it is ironic that the people who most frequently play the "Hitler" card have social position almost identical to those of the historic National Socialists.

Go study how Hitler rose to power. He used nationalism and racial supremacy to energize and recruit his political base. The German people, at the time, ate it up. Rush Limbaugh is free to use this methodology, it's sad to watch some white males fall for this.

I'm not worried, the vast majority of the American people are smarter than this. But Rush is going to fracture the Republican party if he keeps this up.

@Cham said... "I'm not worried, the vast majority of the American people are smarter than this."

I don't know about that. An interesting study showed that if on election day, they included the question "which party controls congress," and only counted the votes of people who answered it correctly, Obama would have lost in a landslide.

But Obama's no dummy, he got 61 senators to vote for a 10,000 page socialist package (that Hitler would have been proud of, not my words), disguised as a stimulus bill, they hadn't even read.

I hesistate to even dignify your race comment. Yeah, "white males." You're the one spouting about race Cham, not Rush. Then again, it is easier for you to demonize someone's motives, call them an old geezer, talk about their race, or otherwise insult them than debate.

Look at Rush's demographics. His audience is made up primarily of white males. Yes, race figures in to this.

The overwhelming majority of black voters voted for Obama. The overwhelming majority of viewers of BET are black. I miss your point.

By the way, James Carville is the one who started saying Rush Limbaugh is the leader of the republican party (in an interview on CNN). It spread like wildfire. Attack Rush. Rush took the ball and ran with it, laughing all the way.
One has to understand Rush's humor. But you probably don't listen to him all the time, so you wouldn't know that.

Baloney. 95% of blacks vote for the party historically supportive of slavery and segregation (that would be the democrats, in case you don't know your history). So its not surprising that most his listeners are white.

I don't think Obama is a racist because 96% of blacks voted for him and 55% of whites didn't. Do you? If not, under what logic can you possibly say that because most Rush's viewers are "white men" does racism play a point?

I think you're more likely racist and sexist than Rush.
