Basil Faulty: I mean, have you seen the people in room six? They’ve never even sat on chairs before. They are the commonest, vulgarest , most…
Faulty Towers 1975
…because his piece at Forbes absolutely nails it:
Have you ever noticed how many of the most prominent conservative voices in America sound more like liberals? I have, and I believe they are in class all their own: they have a special mission and fit a particular profile.
They are what I like to call ‘kept cons.’ They are ‘kept’ by liberals in that kept cons generally work for liberal institutions and seem to fill the role of token conservative; they write conservative columns for national liberal newspapers or appear as conservative hosts or commentators on CNN or MSNBC or CNBC; but they don’t sound all that conservative. You can spot them slamming Sarah Palin or tamping down on the Tea Party. Their usual message is always something like, “I’m a conservative but these other people, these gun owners/southerners/TEA Partiers/Tax Cutters/Randians/Supply-siders/Pro-lifers/Climate Change Deniers/Libertarians/Gun Nuts/ Gold Bugs, etc., are beyond the pale.
This is a perfect description of Joe Scarborough who always seems to have a bad thing to say about a Pat Toomey and the entire GOP presidential field except for Jon Huntsman & Mitt Romney, at least until Romney was nominated and then found fault.
I don’t think I can put it better than the Club for Growth:
Club for Growth spokesman Barney Keller essentially responded by pointing to the scoreboard in recent primaries in which conservative insurgents have prevailed and emerged as influential GOP leaders.
“They are welcome to support the likes of Arlen Specter, Charlie Crist and David Dewhurst,” Keller said of the new Crossroads group. “We will continue to proudly support the likes of Pat Toomey, Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz.”
On the net we call such folks “concern trolls”. I suspect if I was willing to do the same DaTipJar would always be full, but if you are a member of the GOP you will never go broke if you are willing to hit the party.
Michael Graham was one of one of the casualties of the conversion of WTKK to a music format.
The question became where would he go and what would he do?
Well proving that great minds think alike Less than two weeks after DaTechGuy on DaRadio goes into Syndication on the Money Matters Radio Network AM 1120 WBNW Concord AM 1390 WPLM Plymouth/AM 970 WESO Southbridge and now on FTR Radio nationwide another great mind has taken the leap into Syndication.
Michael Graham has announced today he is going into syndication on the Money Matters Radio network AND on my old station WCRN out of Worcester as well.
Now one might think it might be all about getting out there into syndication but I think its all about chasing me for that Steak Dinner I owe him.
So During the Week Tune in at Noontime on the Money Matters Radio network to hear Michael Graham and when Saturday comes along stay right there and join me DaTechGuy on DaRadio from Noon till 2 PM for great conservative talk at noon six days a week.
Update: Should clarify that while Michael is on the Stations of the Money Matters Radio network his syndicated network is called: “The New England Talk Network”
While the Diocese of Worcester has chosen to resend the invitation of my friend Robert Spencer to speak at the Catholic Men’s Conference in Worcester. You can still see him speak if you are a Catholic from Worcester County.
Tonight Mr. Spencer will be appearing at the Natick VFW Post 1274 this evening at 7 PM to speak about the “Organization of Islamic Cooperation” a UN organization whose agenda is to criminalize any critique of Islam.
I would urge people were planning to attend the Catholic Men Conference in Worcester Next month to consider offering the Suggested donation of $20 and see what the local Islamic groups and the Boston Globe didn’t want you to hear.
Then again considering what our Islamic friends are doing to Catholics in Nigeria
Those are (were) people of the Catholic faith and citizens of Nigeria. They were reportedly burned alive in Nigeria by Muslims.
Perhaps one shouldn’t be surprised to see intimidation of Catholics by Muslims be successful.
Via the Brenner Brief that asks a simple question:
Why in the world isn’t the mainstream media covering this? Because it doesn’t fit their perfect little meme that the Christians are mean and evil to the innocent Muslims. A few blogs have covered this, but that’s all.
I’m sure Lisa Wangsness will get around to it eventually
Update: As of today here we are on this week’s goal:
