Let’s see how nice liberals can be…

now that Rush apparently is in the hospital with chest pains.

I’d keep an eye on memeorandum and see what the comments at the liberal sites are. Perhaps I’m being unfair but when this shows up at the Huffpo I’ll be really surprised to see comments open.

Update: Surprise Surprise Surprise and she is right this is THE twitter of the day:

Irony = Hoping Rush Limbaugh Dies. Then asking for citizens to trust you with power.

If you really want to see nasty comments check out the “pop” side of memeorandum “WeSmirch“. The comments particularly at popeater are really something.

Update: American Power links, thanks muchly.

Q: Why is Robert Stacy using my shtick <thanks USCitizen> to talk about my state election for senate?

What a lot of people forget is that Massachusetts was once a solid GOP state till Tip O’Neil and John McCormick decided to try to change it so a statewide effort needs to be made but it takes time and effort to recruit candidates and to convince fatalistic Massachusetts residents that it can be done.

We live here, we have seen what these changes have done to our state and yet as a population we have elected Liberals in vast numbers. Some are nice guys, I met congressman Olver as I held a McCain sign opposite him, he was very friendly and personable, but that doesn’t make them any more right.

With the Red Sox World Series victories perhaps the fatalism can be shaken but it requires several things.

It requires the GOP to be willing to recruit candidates across the state.

It requires those candidates to be willing to put themselves out there.

It requires the voters to be willing to believe that change can happen.

and most of all it requires that voters WANT the change.

The entrenched interests sustain themselves with the current system, they will fight back but other than a stolen election it is the voters willingness to return these liberal year after year that does it.

Until we are willing to stop doing this to ourselves it will continue to happen, but eventually enough people will leave that our electoral count will be so insignificant as to be irrelevant.
