Persistence: Not Always the Solution

[High Praise! to American Digest]

This just HAS to be a metaphor for something, but I’m coming up a little short.

Maybe the Republican Party getting its ass handed to it in 2008, getting a helping hand from the Tea Party in 2010, and then being back to square one by 2012.

UPDATE: Updated with working video link.

  1. I don’t think that the Tea Party was any help at all.

    It was that “Tea Party” type of mentality that followed Ross Perot which in turn put Clinton in office. And the Liberal Media exaggerated the size and the importance of the Tea Party. Sarah Palin claiming that the Republicans should go the way of the WHIGS hasn’t helped any either. Nor has the God Father of the Tea Party Ron Paul. That have done nothing but HURT our chances.

    But you are correct. Persistence: Not Always the Solution!

    The Persistent pesky PaulBot kooks must be ELIMINATED from the Republican Party before the next election.

  2. I beg to differ: I don’t think that any Republican outside the Tea Party was any help at all.

    The media certainly demonized the Tea Party, but that doesn’t equal exaggerating its size or importance.

    Consider global warmists who scoff at those who say the sun dominates the temperature of Earth: they are not exaggerating the suns’s size or importance, just demonizing it as a factor.

    I don’t think Ron Paul is the godfather of the Tea Party, either. If anyone is, it’s Rick Santelli:

    “While standing on the floor of the Chicago Mercantile Exchange on February 19, 2009, he unleashed what can only be called a rant against the Obama Administration’s proposal to help homeowners facing foreclosure refinance their mortgages.

    “Do we really want to subsidize the losers’ mortgages?” he asked. “This is America! How many of you people want to pay for your neighbor’s mortgage that has an extra bathroom and can’t pay their bills?” He went on to suggest that he would organize a Chicago Tea Party in July, where capitalists would dump “some derivative securities into Lake Michigan.” The video of his tirade became a YouTube hit, and thus the movement was born. Within weeks, Tea Party protests were sprouting up all over the country. The Tea Party name, a clear reference to the American colonists’ dumping of tea into Boston Harbor to protest taxes imposed by King George, stands as an acronym as well: Taxed Enough Already.”


  3. Seems more like democrats to me, doing the same stupid thing over and over and being surprised at the same result even though it’s obvious to anyone with a bigger brain than a dog. A cat would have figured that out in 2 seconds.

  4. Finally got to see the video, too.

    It reminded me of Liberals: Sure that they want the biggest stick, just not able to do it on their own. So they whine until someone comes along and makes sure they get it. And all the while that someone is laughing under their breath about the control they have over the one who wants the big stick which they cannot attain without depending on the very same someone who is laughing at them.
