Republicans unimpressed by Drudge video: I’m unimpressed with some Republicans
Via the Washington Post, of course. Here is a simple fact, folks. There is a Republican Party – including a media arm based in Washington that, not only doesn’t know how to fight hard and united, or often doesn’t want to – it doesn’t have enough sense to know when to at least keep it’s damned mouth shut when other people are willing to put it on the line for what they believe in to preserve critical aspects of this republic.
Gingrich argued that the tape has “some impact,” although a few minutes later he added, “I don’t think this particular speech is definitive.” He compared it to Vice President Biden’s “chains” comment, which Republicans greeted with far more enthusiasm.
“Not quite a yawn, but no game-changer,” wrote National Review’s Jim Geraghty. Other conservatives suggested the video could have had an impact in the 2008 primary, had it gotten more coverage.
Not only do more of these people need to be named, they need to be called out, or ultimately ignored, or we may as well surrender right here and now. And, yes, I am talking about Erick Erickson, who I named earlier – and now friend Jim Geraghty, it seems.
We get it. You’re smart. You’re above it all. Why you’re so damned smart, one day one or two of you may even get elevated to the level of a Joe Scarborough, so no one will bother paying any attention to you at all.
But you’re also very wrong. You – and I for that matter – are insignificant. What matters is the fight and that some people are willing to engage it, while others are not, or worse, they love to nay say and even occasionally stab our own fighters in the back out of self-interest and a pathetic need to impress.
Every damned day we have to fight a biased media that spreads every Obama talking point and does everything it can to mute our own. When you fight a war, you seek advantage. Some will be big, some small, but it is the mass of every little bit of ground gained that ultimately allows one to succeed for a, in this case, right and desperately needed cause – to try and save some semblance of a traditional America in the face of a relentless onslaught from an extremely progressive left.
Meanwhile, conservatives are forced to look around the battle field and on nearly every engagement, there are these often Hill types nagging, wee weeing and nipping at our very own heels. If you lack the fortitude or ability to sacrifice some of your own silly sense of self pride to join in every battle you can, you should at least have the decency and common sense to know when to STFU. In the end, no one but a largely oppositional media and your own pathetically self-interested self really gives a damn what you think any way.
