Someone Get Me a Voter Registration Card, Stat!

Posted in politics by echan on June 23, 2009

I’ve grappled over the decision to remain in the GOP fold forever, even though the party of Lincoln, has drifted further and further away from what I believe in.  Colin Powell bought the Party a few more months, but Peter Brimelow’s comments (and very presence) at a recent Pat Buchanan conference dedicated to “Building the New [Republican] Majority,” may be the final straw.  Brimelow urged the attendees of the Buchanan conference to attack affirmative action in an effort to attract the votes of ‘young whites’ and ‘yellow people.'”  Comments like that push “yellow people” like me out of the GOP’s supposedly big tent.

Oh, and Buchanan’s attacks against Sotomayor were not kosher either.

Addendum: Simon pointed out this comment from the Coates’ blogpost on the Buchanan/Brimelow’s Hatecon, “This is fractal fail: no matter how far you zoom in, there’s still more fail.”

    Flip flopper. 🙂

    One thing I’ve noticed about “You” Republicans is… When you don’t like something, you just leave and give up. See link bait please. The left is doing just fine, please don’t taint the pool.

      No worries, I’m not joining your party. I’m taking the “decline party affiliation” route.
