    I originally penned this in response to Mrs. Keet's hand-wringing over the Tea Party's attempts to derail Moderatism within the Republican party. But I'd be willing to bet it could be directed toward many others, here, as well.


    So...for those not willing to drill to the bottom of a 100-post Mrs. Keet 410 dung-flinging contest - do answer me this, won't you, Moderate Republicans?


    ------------------------------------


    Dear (Mrs. Keet),


    The Tea Party has done a pretty respectable job shifting the center of mass of American politics, by knocking off Moderates within their own party. Their game plan works, and there is no reason for them to abandon it. After all, that's why you're here talking about them...isn't it?

    You see, it's not the Tea Party's job to replace Barack Obama with a Moderate Republican to your liking. If that's what you want, and you're scared the Tea Party is going to deprive you of it, go register Republican and take things into your own hands. There are plenty of Arlen Specter wannabes out there gunning for the votes of people just like you.

    Or, you can just sit here and bitch. I could care less. You were mad when Bush was President...and now you're mad the Tea Party is trying to steer the party away from the ways of Bush. There's just no pleasing you, and frankly, I don't think the Tea Party should bother (as if they would)...because you're not even a conservative!

    I always knew it would be a sign of the Tea Party's success, when Moderates/Liberals started telling them "what they should do." Well, guess what? We don't care. What the Tea Party is doing is working. If you don't like it, invent your own movement..."Moderate Republicans for Big Government," or, well...whatever floats your boat.

    See that bright, twinkling star in the northern sky? A GOP Prince of Moderation is born in a stable for you, Mrs. Keet, and awaits your prostration beside his manger. Mitt Romney came down from Heaven to get your vote. He has:

    1) The Hair. Perfect. You might even say, "coiffed."

    2) The Family. Pretty Pink dresses. Adorable.

    3) The Competent Record of Moderate Gubernatorial Achievement. Perfect, really, to Preside over the Byzantine Kingdom of Healthcare Bureaucracy the Chocolate Bolshevik created.

    Are you going to let him down, Mrs. Keet? Are you just going to sit here, bitching at a bunch of bitter old clingers, allowing this Golden Opportunity to pass you by? The Train of Competent Moderate Governance is leaving the station, and it needs *you* on board. Go help elect that guy!


    Then you'll be happy. Right?



    But just for the record: what are you going to say, when Mitt Romney the "Savior of the Party" gets the nomination - and LOSES? What's going to be your explanation for how the Moderate Republican didn't play his cards right? That he was "bribed to the Right" by his Wall Street buddies? That he was captured in the evil Tractor Beam of the Tea Party, and so lost the allegiance of that precious 10% of people in the middle who decide elections (but who'd secretly rather be watching Dancing With the Retards?). His running mate was "wacko?" We know what the "narrative" is, when the Tea Party's candidate goes down in flames. What isn't so perfected, yet, is the explanation for the Establishment Candidate's failure to perform.


    You have 54 weeks. Start fabricating your story now. Don't tease us, Keet...we're *dying* to hear it.

    Now, now, don't be too harsh on the poor dumb schmuck. He's one of the clueless 99%ers, still trying to figure out what he wants and how to form an opinion.

    Mrs. Keet, is confused. She thinks these debates between: Perry, Romney, Paul, Cain, Bachman, Huntsman, Newt, etal is a contest to see whom gets to host the "New Hollywood Squares" game show.

    If you want a game show host Romney would be the one.

    buzzy, a quick way to make amends with Mrs Keet is to let her know you are working for Dick Lugar's reelection.

    Buzz - But what if the goofy wing of tea party scares off the moderates and independents and gives the Republic another four years of Obama with democratic majorities in House and Senate? They did that in Delaware and Nevada and cost the Republicans control of the Senate.

    Skeeter,

    As posted many times here Harry Reids SON and THE SEIU stole the Nevada election while they were somehow put in charge of the voting machines at the polls. When a vote was cast for Sharon it registered for Harry.


    They cheated, it was stolen and the nutless/gutless voters out there just walked away and said "oh well". There should have been a federal level investigation into that felonious act. But Step and Fetch Holder didn't do anything as directed by Barry the clown. So that's the last time we're going to "splain that to you Lucy".

    And again please PRODUCE THE NAMES of the goofy wing of the TEA Party you continually refer to in your babblegrams. I'd name your goofy wing members but most of them are already pictured above. (not a complete list)

    Attitudes like this and a lack of involvment in the political process will get Obama reelected.

    Good work. Well thought out.

    It won't be long and the East and West Coast will control the country while the rest of us pay for their comfortable lifestyle.

    I do not comprehend how avoidance of debt and smaller government can be considered a threat.

    Of course, I also do not understand queers and/or democrats.

    halfmile - If the tea party keeps to those issues fine. Those are the issues that sparked the spontaneous birth the of the tea party. It's the John Birch rejects, social conservatives, and bigots that attached themselves to the tea party and are trying to lever the tea party to promote their agendas that are scaring off the moderate republicans and independents that support the financial conservatism of the original tea party. The immature, kamikaze wing of the tea party that will pout and sit out the election won't do anything to promote avoidance of debt or smaller government. And indulging that wing of the tea party by nominating losers is a major disservice to the goals of the financial conservativism.

    Calling moderate Republicans Commies is a real good way to drive them, and independents, away from the tea party.

    Arlen Specter was not a moderate Republican.

    Buzz - In your opening remarks you mentioned the Tea party had knocked off moderate members from within that organization and further the Tea Party really doesn't care about these people's opinions.

    Well by knocked off I assume you mean they were driven from the organization but are sitll very much alive. In this case do you believe you have gained or lost votes for your cause?

    If history teaches us anything it should be that it is the moderate vote that decides elections in this country. Obama will probably continue to have the support of the liberals in 2012 and to counter that the right wing will certainly support anyone but Obama. That leaves the the vast middle ground of voters - the moderates - to decide the race. Still think it is okay to knock off potential allies?

    Platform planks? Cool buzz words.

    Well being moderate means being realistic. So when you talk about the federal debt you need to have a realistic plan to get a reign on it. Sorry but no taxes or taxed enough already won't get us there. There is going to have to be a whole bunch more money from taxes. At the other end of the spectrum (the flaming liberal) we can't continue supporting every social program in the manner that we have. We can't continue to bail out other governments with money we don't have. We can't continue to borrow money to pay the intrest on money we have previously borrowed. So look for the middle ground.

    The moderate also doesn't look for a religious spin with their politics. They go to a church for that if they want. We don't need anyone in the Federal government making choices for us based on there religious leanings.

    We could go on and on but the bottm line with the middle ground is there has got to be a reasonable plan that has a chance of working and to be reasonable it has to be open to compromise.

    But in no event will you see a reasonable american openly insulting his fellow country men by labeling them commies. Sorry but that crosses the line.

    Barker - What the heck does pro-life have to do with tea party????? It sure is a position alien to Libertarians.

    Barker, I never used the term lunitics (sic) to refer to the general population of the tea party. I used in reference to the fringers that are trying to hijack the tea party to promote their personal agendas alien to the tea party's fundamental principles, to wit pro-life.

    Barker - What was the tea party doing during the Republican primaries in those states? They were getting the losers nominated. Sarah showed up during the primaries, but was not there during the general election. Like Colin Powell said, "if you break it, you bought it." But Sarah sneaked out the back and didn't come back when needed.

    Rick Barker.... Gads I hate this! I agree with you again!!!! You want an answer to your question, what is a Moderate? Look at your own post. You answered it yourself and didn't even know it. Look at the space between your definition of Democrat and Republican. Half of that space is a Moderate.

    Barker - If you speak like that in public no wonder so many are thinking the tea party is a bunch of crude Neanderthals. Dumb talk like does more to alienate most voters to the tea party than anything the Washington Post, or the New Times, or MSNBC can write or say about them.
