P.J. O'RINO: Pisses Every Republican Off

Peaked in the first Bush administration.

Here's some highlights from his latest confusing rant for The Weekly Standard.

First off, O'Rourke accuses the GOP of being racist.

There was no need to piss off the entire black population of America to get Dixie's electoral votes. And despising cracker trash who have a laundry hamper full of bedsheets with eye-holes cut in them does not make a man a liberal.

On illegal immigration

Our attitude toward immigration has been repulsive. Are we not pro-life? Are not immigrants alive? Unfortunately, no, a lot of them aren't after attempting to cross our borders. Conservative immigration policies are as stupid as conservative attitudes are gross.

On the War on Terror, O'Rourke shows he has no understanding of radical Islam.

Then, half a generation later, when we returned with our armies, we expected to be greeted as liberators. And, damn it, we were. I was in Baghdad in April 2003. People were glad to see us, until they noticed that we'd forgotten to bring along any personnel or provisions to feed or doctor the survivors of shock and awe or to get their electricity and water running again. After that they got huffy and began stuffing dynamite down their pants before consulting with the occupying forces.

Is there a moral dimension to foreign policy in our political philosophy? Or do we just exist to help the world's rich people make and keep their money?

O'Rourke just doesn't get it. For a conservative he sure believes a lot of liberal memes. Nobody becomes a suicide bomber (or, as P.J. puts it, stuff dynamite down their pants) because their electricity grind ain't working.

If so, there would have been no need to rescue people after Hurricane Katrina as they would have blown themselves up before General Honre got to town with his choppers.

O'Rourke should stick to his witty observations about the inefficiencies of the postal system or first-person 5,000-word accounts on privatizing sidewalks mixed in with a liberal amount of references to Clinton being a horn dog and Madonna being a slut.

O'Rourke doesn't even begin to piss me off ...

Why should the imbecilic rantings of a self loathing Barking Moonbat make me angry ?

If O'Rourke had any real story , or even a shred of substance to his screeds he might prove to be dangerous, he is totally benign , he uses rumor and innuendo because he only wants more attention and money.

It's simple to dispell O'Rourke and his spin.

Besides, I am a Conservative and not a Republican.
