Couple Of Thoughts On Leadership

Posted on | August 12, 2011 | 8 Comments

Proof Positive quotes Mark Levin:

“I would vote for a can of orange juice over Obama, but I would prefer a conservative.”

Ben Howe offers a more extended meditation on the theme:
The sad part about the clip is either the ease of the target or the difficulty in whittling down the material–unsure which.

I’ll vote for Levin’s glass of orange juice before I vote for somebody just because I personally admire them. Leadership isn’t a personality contest. Leadership is not about race, gender or creed. If we’re jingoistic lemmings, as the Left was in ’08, only about a conservative, then we haven’t advanced the cause of liberty.

Update: Ed Driscoll ‘lanche!

    I’d vote for one of Oscar Madison’s poker nite mystery sammiches over The Once.  At least they’d have substance.  And would go down a damn sight easier too.

    Orange juice is pretty conservative.  Orange County, Anita Bryant, Screwdrivers.

    And MUCH better for you than Obama.

    Sorry, I’m not down for calls for unity.  It is time and past time for the RINOs to give up their control of the GOP to the natural rulers of this party, the Socon.  The only way to succeed at  ousting the corrupt greedocrats with their amoral ways with money and all the other values is to coolly and calmly decide to play chicken…And Mean It.
