« Puppy Propaganda | WILLisms.com | Trivia Tidbit Of The Day: Part 277 -- Democrats Cozier With Lobbyists Than Republicans. »

Kool-Aid Is For The Kos Kult

Harriet Miers.
Immigration reform.
Budget deficits.

I guess we can add giving the United Arab Emirates control over six U.S. ports to the list of issues proving that Republicans are not hypnotized by the supposed 'cult leader' George W. Bush.

But then, this message is not for you Republicans, because of course you know better.

Rather, this is a slapdown to liberals such as Glenn Greenwald, who has been pulled into the orbit of the Kos Kult, a real cult centered at the Blog-That-Shall-Not-Be-Named, where the slightest dissent is met with gales of hatred, filthy language and playground logic. Just try to suggest that Howard Dean is anything less than the messiah or that the War on Terror has accomplished some good things, and see how long you last outside of the kult kompound.

With Republicans however, principles always come first, and especially before mere personality. I happen to think George W. Bush is charismatic, and I may very well be in a minority in this view even among Republicans who are loyal to him. I have not been 'charmed' into following him however: I follow him because he is clear on his ideals, adheres to them, and uses them to guide his leadership. His leadership is solid because it is grounded in good principles, such as not bowing to expediency, continuing to do what you know is right in spite of huge political obstacles, not falling for the bait laid out by your political opponents, and not worrying about being liked (which is the huge personal failing that kept Bill Clinton from ever being anything other than president-lite).

I feel perfectly comfortable criticizing those I admire in my party. No Kos Kid can claim this, because their movement is not about ideas and principles, but rather is based in paranoia, helplessness and insecurity. Prime candidates for cults, in other words. If they dare criticize their leaders, they risk being cast into the wilderness of reality.

Ken,...I have noticed that too. Look at Robert Byrd and Ted Kennedy. Those are two examples best describing that theory.

The opposition to the port deal is absolutely baffling to me. I expected it from the weirdo isolationist types, but not from so many others.

Looks like we've got more members of the Coalition of the Chillin' - National Security Division.

Posted by: Mick Wright at February 23, 2006 09:50 AM

Yeah well I am not losing sleep over the idea of ports being run by an arab firm, as long as we retain all control over security.

But the whole debate illustrates how Republicans just are not in lockstep.

It also shows the knee-jerkiness of a lot of right-bloggers.

It's understandable how anyone would be a bit taken back by the Presidents decision and the way he has handled telling us! I know it is important to maintain a friendship and keep bonds with UAE. BUT...the Arab world is a hotbed of hatred for Americans! Americans needed the President to address the American public and try to compfort and make us feel secure about this important transaction! I support our President and believe this is a right decision. However, people are seeing Arabs burning property, murdering people over cartoons. It is kind of scary???
