#350 The Scaife Wing
Richard Mellon Scaifre of Nowhere, PA ain't what he used to be. But the memory lingers on.
Scaife is the newspaper zillionaire who funded Kenneth Starr and his clones, the guys who seemed like all-Americans trying to take over America and turn it into a skinhead paradise.
Scaife has started opposing the war and isn't so sure anymore that Kenny, baby is the right guy to dictate to America.
And we're not all that sure that he's the funding behind the current Scaife Wing. But someone like him certainly is.
We think of Rush Limbaugh as a buffoon. But he isn't. He's an influence. And in recent days he's been campaigning against Sen. John McCain's presidential bid and for former Governor Willard Romney's.
He liked Fred Thompson, too. But dead Fred had the electrodes pulled from his head and the body politic that was this Frankenstein has ceased to function.
Now, it's Romney for President.
Why? What does this radio talk moron know that we don't?
Where is the money coming from beside Romney's own prodigious bankroll?
From anyone who wants to destroy the Republican party in the name of conservatism.
Day after day this buffoon tells us how McCain, nice guy that he is, is not true to conservative principles and that Romney, who has switched his position on so many issues no one can count them, is.
Thompson's withdrawal from the race for the Republican presidential nonination leaves a pretty dry field of conservatives.
So the Scaifies have to come up with someone to out-Fred Fred.
Somewhere in the back of all this is someone's money. Probably not Scaife. He doesn't have enough. And these days, he doesn't even seem to have the will he once did to destroy American values. So someone is feeding the Limbaugh monster.
The question is is anyone paying any attention to this guy?
The answer is yes.
People listen and believe "it wouldn't be on the radio if it weren't true."
Guys like Rush want power. They want to dethrone the east and west coast men and women who are the real republicans. And while he spends a lot of time and energy trying to make McCain and former Arkansas Governor Mike Hucklebuck seem like raving liberals (i.e. Democrats from 1945,) he's become a man without a candidate, but not without principles. He wants to turn you into a plow horse.
He wants to give you "choices." Choices in health insurance, choices in jobs, choices in investments. Translation: he wants you to spend so much time and effort on this claptrap that you don't have any time to evaluate what's gong on around you.
Here's what's going on around you: a theoretical end to the compromise and colaborations that have made America great, all the while denying that's the reaon for our national greatness. Here's what's going on around you: a denyal of reason couched in the most reasonable-sounding terms. Here's what's going on around you: a theocracy in the making, but not just a theocracy, but one which aims to make Christianity the State Religion. (The Constitution forbids that, but no one with any clout is watching.
Here's what's going on around you: an attempt to take over the means of communication, the media.
Once these guys get into power, you can forget American values, you can forget cooperation, you can forget coalition.
These people want nothing more than total power over you and yours.
They pay lip service to individualism, but that's all it is. What they want is to control you.
Why? Because they're a bunch of frightened psychotics who think that they know how the world works, but haven't a clue.
And they're being led by someone who makes Goebbels look like a rank amateur.
Are you going to get sucked in? Or are you going to turn what's left of your brain back on?
