and we thought "dick armey" was about gays in the military

joe gandelman at the moderate voice analyzes dick armey's washpost article:

where did the revolution go astray? how did we go from the big ideas and vision of 1994 to the cheap political point-ascoring on meaningless wedge issues of today — from passing welfare reform and limited government to banning horsemeat and same-sex marriage?

the answer is simple: republican lawmakers forgot the party's principles, became enamored with power and position, and began putting politics over policy. now, the democrats are reaping the rewards of our neglect — and we have no one to blame but ourselves...

I still remember Rush telling the 1994 Freshman Class of the congress to NOT try to make the MSM love them. "There is nothing you can do to make them like you. Nothing."

And over time, they forgot that simple caveat. Next the forgot who elected them. and finally, they forgot who the were.

Instead of Newt, and dick, and Joe Barton, we get a whole raft of "Moderates." Ptooie. Get that word out of the vocabulary.

"Thanks, Dick! Well said and LONG ovedue"
