When I was at Texas Tech, the student body took great pride in our reputation as the “most offensive fans” in the Big 12. We’d throw tortillas at you and tear down the goal posts if we beat you. We boasted that our coach, the revered Pirate, Mike Leach, was rumored to drink during games – which explained his propensity to go for it on a 4th and 12. Most teams call in the 2nd team once they get a sizable lead. Not Tech. We beat Nebraska 75-10 during my freshmen year. (What?! It was HOMECOMING!)
To be honest, we were so offensive because 90% of the time, we were the underdogs. When you compete in a conference with football dynasties like Texas, OU and Nebraska, it’s tough to get any R-E-S-P-E-C-T. Drunk college kids getting rowdy over a football game is one thing, but Ron Paul supporters are the “most offensive fans” in the GOP, and it’s destroying his credibility with the rest of the Right.
Listen, Paulians - we GET it. You love Ron Paul for his economic policies, you have full faith that he’s the 2nd coming & he alone can save America. (And you really, really want the right to smoke your pot without government intervention…) Cool. I – and I think most conservatives – agree with Ron Paul on almost 90% of the issues. It’s the 10% on which he is bat sh*t crazy that terrifies us. He’s great when it comes to the economy and the Constitutional role of the federal government. I’d even agree with him on gay rights and marijuana, although a lot of conservatives wouldn’t. When he talks about foreign policy, however, I want to have him tested for dementia.
You guys acting like it’s your sole purpose in life to Occupy Twitter and attack anyone who hints at supporting another candidate is killing your cause. The more times I’m told that Newt Gingrich is a Marxist, or that Perry is for genetic engineering, the more I think you guys are wearing tin foil hats. The hit piece on Newt put out by Paul’s campaign yesterday just made it worse. Mockarena over at ChicksOnTheRight.com has it right – Paul’s people do fight like teenage girls.

At this point, I would like nothing more than to outlaw any and all commercials featuring toys of any sort until after December 25. My 2 year old has finally grasped the whole Christmas/Santa/Gimmie-Some-Damn-Presents idea. Every commercial break is now punctuated with at least 3 variations of: “Mommy!!!! Mommy, co’mere! MOMMY! I want daaaaaat!” Seeing as I, like the rest of America, am broke as a joke, the kid is driving me up the wall.
I’ve been reading nothing but political commentary lately, my twitter addiction growing more perilous each day. I also seem to spend the few moments of my TV time (when I can get the channel off of Diego, Sesame Street, and Bubble Guppies…) watching Fox News. I’m a sucker for Red Eye, and I love me some Megyn Kelly. Needless to say, I’ve got politics on the brain. This all culminated in the perfect storm of ridiculous parenting FAIL – which I shall now describe:
My son, “B“: Mommy, c’mere! I want daaaaaat!
Me: Son, that’s a Barbie. I’m not about to contribute to the further emasculation of the men of America.
B: *cocks head in confusion*
Me: (realizing I’m talking to my two year old. . .) Barbies are for girls.
B: Oh. . . OH! Mommy! I want HOT WHEELS!
Lord, please help me make it through the holidays . . .

The left won the battle for social media dominance in 2008. They won it in a huge way. If you don’t believe me, check out Obama Zombies: How the Liberal Machine Brainwashed My Generation We have to change this, and learn to unite our tried-and-true grassroots approach with blogging, tweeting, Facebook and more. Why must conservatives work tirelessly to utilize new media? Like with any question, this question can be answered if we ask, “What would President Reagan say?”
“Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling out children and our children’s children what it was once like in the United States where men were free.“ – President Ronald Reagan
