This cartoon appeared in Life magazine in 1918. It’s sometimes easy to forget that the surrendercrats* have been with us for a long, long time. They were with us in the Civil War, they were with us during the American Revolution. Hell, if you watch 300, you’ll see they were even around during the time of the ancient Greeks. Defeatism is an easy fall-back position for people who suck. When losing is all you know how to do, it’s kind of hard to visualize an alternative strategy.
*Note that I’m not specifically referring to the Democrats here, although they do tend to make up the majority of the modern Surrendercrat Party.

I’m not even going to make any jokes about this article. Why? Because I take this one seriously. Its very evidence based. There’s no hysteria, no moralistic self-flagellation, and no arguments that this potential problem requires that we switch over to a socialist, command and control economy ruled by Algore.

In a not so stunning development, New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg has left the Republican Party, switching his political tag to “Unaffiliated”. Some are seeing this as an attempt to position himself for an independent (translation: doomed) run at the presidency in 2008, although many concede that this may be simply the first move in a gradual shift over to the Democrat Party, a move that would leave the average IQ of both the Republican and Democrat Parties significantly higher.
In news that is stunning to literally no one (except maybe the 1 or 2 percent who are pulling for Ron Paul), Former Senator Fred Thompson has pulled ahead of Former Mayor Rudy Giuliani in the latest Rasmussen polls, leading 28% to 27%. Although caution should be taken with such a narrow lead, it is telling that Thompson can pull ahead of Giuliani at all, considering he hasn’t even officially announced yet. Filling out the top four are McCain and Romney with 10% each, both of who should probably just pack it in at this point.
