Peggy Noonan Calls Rush, Newt, Conservative Activists “Idiots” for Attacking Sotomayor
Well, you know what they say about stopped clocks.
Some, and they are idiots, look at Judge Sotomayor and say: attack, attack, kill. A conservative activist told the New York Times, "We need to brand her."
That "activist" would be Scott Reed, who ran Bob Dole’s ’96 death march. Other "idiots" include, in no particular order, Tom Tancredo, Karl Rove, Michelle Malkin, Glenn Reynolds, Kathryn Jean-Lopez, Richard Land, Tony Perkins, Bill Bennett, Fred Barnes, etc., etc.
Back to Nooners.
Another told me a fight is needed to excite the base.
Excite the base? How about excite a moderate, or interest an independent? How about gain the attention of people who aren’t already on your side?
What a concept!
But obviously, Nooners doesn’t seem to understand that the reason Republicans keep losing elections is that they’re insufficiently wingnutty. Doesn’t she read RedState?
For the record, this is the second time Nooners has called the GOP’s base "idiots."
