Before continuing with part two (see yesterday’s “Freedomworks’ Little Frankenstein Lab: Oregon“), I’d like to offer a little intermission entertainment, something to think about or explore on your own before the beginning of Act II of our little drayma [sic] in surreal life …
Our successful free market lassaiz faire capitalists
Remember that Freedomworks is a major sponsor of the tea party movement. Because this email went out from the affiliated NEW American Liberty Alliance on Halloween morning (talk about unmasking):]

Dede drops out of race!!!
In a surprise move, liberal Republican candidate for the special election in New York’s 23rd Congressional District, has completely dropped out of the race.
As you know, 73wire.com, our project to get the Tea Party Movement into major coverage of the political battle, has been all over this race.
Earlier this week, we broke news of the NRCC’s involvement in the race (by putting ground troops in play). Then, yesterday we broke the story about the NRCC closing up shop and completely backing out of the race.
A few minutes later, we broke the story of the Dede drop out.
The Tea Party Movement Candidate
This news paves the way for Doug Hoffman to ride to a win in NY23. And this wouldn’t be possible without the movement.
Now we just need to take Bill Owens, the liberal Democrat out of the race on election night next week, and the movement will be able to claim a major victory over the establishment.
This is what we’re all about!
If you’d like to know how Eric Odom is connected to Freedomworks, take a look here. But, before we get lost in the forest of details, let me lay out my “thesis,” which is this:
A group of angry men walked out of the 1984 Libertarian Party convention and they’ve been at work, ever since, moving slowly into the Republican party. This year, noticing the fractured party after the McCain debacle, they are making their move at taking over the Republican party.
Don’t believe me? Good. Stay skeptical. Look a little more deeply. But here’s some trails …
They came within seven votes of winning the GOP chairmanship earlier this year.
They have been sponsoring the “Tea Party” movement events.
They’ve hired Joe the Plumber, and Michelle Malkin and Mary Katherine Ham; they’ve turned 1999′s “Club for Growth” into a powerful targeted race tool, picking races that they think that their concentrated cash can affect, beginning with One Term Wonder Congressman James Sali of Idaho.
Now, their former club president/spokesmodel Pat Toomey is a serious threat to Arlen Specter in Pennsylvania. And they decided to flex their muscle in NY23, now that the long knives are finally out.
But, in this whole New York House District 23 bloodbath, has ANY BODY NOTICED THAT IT’S NONE OF OUR GODDAMNED BUSINESS WHO THEY SEND TO CONGRESS TO REPRESENT THEM!??!?!?
In the midst of all this “freedom” bullshit, how come we don’t get to choose our own representatives, but, instead have onymous assholes like Newt Gingrich and Sarah Palin, Eric Odom and Jackson T. Stephens* picking for us!?!? (OK, the last two are mostly ANonmous, and the link on JTS is REALLY worth reading.)
[* If you'd like to get REALLY creeped out, read THIS LINK, paying particular attention to the line "Stephens Media is responsible for editorial control of all publications except for the Northwest Arkansas edition of the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette ..."]
But if government is so awful and terrible why do they want to run OUR governments? I mean like Oregon, and New York House District 23, and Idaho’s congressional seat … ?
The “we can’t tell you who they are” men behind this movement have the cash, the organization and the opportunity to take over the GOP, and that’s exactly what they’re doing.
I even believe that they’ve made the calculation that the evangelicals will HAVE to come along with the capitalist wing of the capitalist party, so the long knives will STAY out.
I will not comment on the irony of a bitter battle for the soul of a party that has, seemingly no actual souls in membership. After the ugly excesses FOLLOWING the election, and the past eight years of silent complicity in the acceptance of a police state, it is increasingly difficult for anyone with a conscience, a memory or a soul to remain a “Republican.” Thus the precipitous drop in GOP membership without a corresponding increase in Democratic registrations.
So, I guess it’s No Souls Day in the Grand Old Party, now entirely composed of former Southern Democrats who, oddly, still comport themselves AS Southern Democrats.
Thanks Tricky Dicky.
POL = Party of LincolNoMore
We’re being shown a preview of the 2010 off year elections. Elections, I fear, in which the greatest casualty will be all forms of moderation.
(I think we’ll need it.)
