Defeat Liberalism

A contrarian Moose mischievously muses that a Bush defeat would amount to a loss for liberalism.

Mooseketeers, please hear the Moose out before you click away into cyberspace. A decade ago, the Moose recalls sitting in meetings with Gingrich, Norquist, Reed and other once-revolutionaries plotting against an ossified liberal establishment. Our complaint was that the Congressional Democrats were devoid of ideas and their goal was to hold onto power at all cost. Of course, the liberals were disdainful of the taxpayer and expanded the federal government with wild abandon. In short, the liberals who were controlling Washington were corrupt and addicted to power.

The Moose argues that the Republican establishment has morphed into their caricature of the left in a brief decade. From the K Street Project to the explosion of pork barrel spending, the G.O.P. has become what they once fervently opposed. If you add unaccountability to the mix, the conservative power structure today is a mirror image of the Washington liberal establishment back in ’94.

The Moose is prepared for another revolution – perhaps it is occurring as the Moose writes…
