'It speaks volumes . . .'

OK, so the National Republican Congressional Committee issues a press release asking whether freshmen Democrats in the House support $335 million in STD prevention programs in the so-called "stimulus" bill. And the Democrats respond:
"It speaks volumes about the overall health of the Republican Party that they are getting their ideas from the Drudge Report and their mouthpiece is Rush Limbaugh."
It speaks volumes about the Democrats that their idea of a response to a legitimate policy question is to make idiotic ad hominem attacks on a Web site operator and a radio personality who have nothing to do with the policy question.


  1. It really only speaks one line, rule 13 of Alinksy's Rules for Radicals:

    Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.

    Which is really an elaboration of the good ol' shoot the messenger.

  2. It speaks volumes that Republicans will resort to the cheapest kind of pandering fearing the wrath of talk show hosts and gossip columnists.
    Remember when Conservative leaders used to go to Washington to get things done?
    Now they get behind the microphone...
    Good luck with that.

  3. Cheapest kind of pandering? As in standing up for their principles? As in not bending over to appease the Democrats and their glorious leader? As in not cowing to the relentless banter of the Obamedia?

    Oh yes. They came there to get things done, but the 'bipartisanship' asked by Pelosi and Reid simply means do it their way or be labeled a racist, war-mongering hater.

    You hate the rich and successful because they must have cheated you out of your free housing to get there. You hate those who oppose abortion because to not allow it means to enforce responsibility on people. You want the fed to spend untold trillions so you can get more free stuff and laugh at those who actually work for theirs.

    We wouldn't expect a liberal to understand the concept of keeping the government small so they don't start dictating every aspect of your life, because that is what you want.

    It is already heading that way... but it appears your ideology has blinded you to that fact. Look around, son. When you finally do see the light, it will be far too late; your every action will be dictated by some regulation or ordnance... believe it.
