McCain’s Campaign Chief Admits GOP Is ‘Extinct’

by Ken Layne

To be fair, he didn’t say the Republican Party was dead in the South. So, they’ve still got that going for them …. [YouTube]

So goes the old, wrinkled dicks; so goes the GOP. Who will be their version of Viagra/Cialis?

snideinplainsight April 27, 2009 at 11:13 am

What about Meghand McCain? SHE’s not X-tinct!

Jerk Cade April 27, 2009 at 11:16 am

Couldn’t have happened to a nicer group of guys!

The nutters will rise again. Like zombies, you can’t keep the fuckers down.

In all reality, the GOP was actually extinct, on hundres of levels, about 1965 or thereabouts. It’s never really been in sync with about 95 percent of the population of the planet.

but then again, what has steve schmidt ever gotten right?

V572625694 April 27, 2009 at 11:19 am

Jeebus Christ, Matalin looks more and more like Carville in a wig every day. Scary!

One Yield Regular April 27, 2009 at 11:19 am

Huh-huh. Huh. He thaid ‘thrinking entithy,’ Beavith. Huh. Huh-uh-uh.

ManchuCandidate April 27, 2009 at 11:21 am

I think Boner pills aren’t enough. Sarah Palin’s getting older and is not the correct sex. I’m guessing the Greek God Priapus. He fits. Every statue of him has a boner and he likes it “Greek” Style.

As for the clip. No shit. Have you seen the Freeper Convention photos? All fat and/or old and white. Not exactly a healthy demo for the GOP to lean on.

Custerwolf April 27, 2009 at 11:22 am

This is pure sensationalism. You cannot say that the GOP is extinct when we all know there are billions – dare I say TRILLIONS – of viable republican sperm floating around in the anuses of unsuspecting young men everywhere. These can be harvested, people, c’mon!!!

tootsieroll April 27, 2009 at 11:23 am

I was actually watching this with my sister-in-law and her husband yesterday. I forgot exactly what Schmidt said at whatever point, but I commented, “But they don’t want the BROWN people..” and she LOL’d. Reading Wonkette has really enlarged my capacity for wit.

hobospacejunkie April 27, 2009 at 11:25 am

Steve Schmidt: if your lookin’ for a j-o-b in the G-O-P, Yur Doin It Rong.

KilgoreTrout_XL April 27, 2009 at 11:26 am

Shush, Steve.

It’s more fun when they think they’re a majority.

Wait, they’ll always have Alaska!

Attention Governors Perry and Sanford: NO, you cannot have federal money to protect Republicans, no matter how much you suddenly believe the Endangered Species Act is an essential piece of legislation.

Come here a minute April 27, 2009 at 11:29 am

The part where they cut back to Matalin and she’s dabbing her eyes with a tissue looks and sounds like a scene from The Birds.

Bruno April 27, 2009 at 11:29 am

By classifying them as extinct, does this mean that they did indeed walk the earth with the dinosaurs 6,000 years ago?

I think endangered is a much better classification. And there is nothing an NRA member likes more than shootin’ dead an engangered species and hangin’ it up as a trophy in the livingroom. My personal favorite is of course the elephant-foot wastepaper basket.

danadevin85 April 27, 2009 at 11:31 am

Well now we know who won’t be at the GOP Christmas part this year

danadevin85 April 27, 2009 at 11:32 am

meant to say Christmas party

forgracie April 27, 2009 at 11:33 am

“And I helped.”

Mr Blifil April 27, 2009 at 11:35 am

Extinctions have consequences.

The Cold Sea April 27, 2009 at 11:37 am

Shrinking entity pretty well sums up the Republicans and their members.

Custerwolf April 27, 2009 at 11:39 am

The sex has got to be pretty incredible between those two (Carville and Matalin) for them to be able to withstand the shock of looking at each other and listening to each other every single goddamned day.

PrairiePossum April 27, 2009 at 11:40 am

Maybe they were swallowed up by the rapture. Praise Jeebus.

Woodwards Friend April 27, 2009 at 11:40 am

Excuse me but why does the LIBERAL MEDIA continue to ignore McCain’s landslide win in Oklahoma?

sarcasticusername April 27, 2009 at 11:45 am

who cares about the creepy bald guy, who can barely fit in his chair? omg david plouffe! that’s all.

Mr Blifil April 27, 2009 at 11:45 am

[re=300469]Custerwolf[/re]: True dat. Matalin must be super hung.

Johnny Zhivago April 27, 2009 at 11:58 am

It’s even worse. The Swine Flu vaccine is in a safe under Obama’s desk. He will only give it to top officials who swear a loyalty oath.

What’s left is being distributed to Acorn stormtroopers, who will launch a new registration drive – and sorry, no vaccine if you check off “Republican”.

Min April 27, 2009 at 12:01 pm

They’re not only alive and well in the South, they’re working hard to make it possible to carry concealed 24/7.

So be afraid, people. Be very afraid.

randomsausage April 27, 2009 at 12:04 pm

I wish the South would just fuck off. Apart from the two cute Dixie Chics, natch.

DustBowlBlues April 27, 2009 at 12:07 pm

[re=300473]Woodwards Friend[/re]: For fuck’s sake, will you people quit saying that? Everyone, repeat after me: Oklahoma’s name is going to be changed to “Flaminglipstan.” You think I want fat old white Repubtard teabagging refugees flooding Oklahoma? We obviously have enough of them as it is.

Texan Bulldoggette April 27, 2009 at 12:11 pm

I like how my boyfriend, David Plouffe, (who no longer emails me now that he’s gotten what he’s wanted…sob) tries not to smirk at Baldy.

DustBowlBlues April 27, 2009 at 12:15 pm

[re=300504]randomsausage[/re]: It pains me to know that the US would be better off if a group of states formed Fuckistan. The pain is in knowing a live in it.

I like his “attract one Log Cabin Republican for every 100 Bible-thumpers you alienate by supporting gay marriage” approach to GOP revitalization.

SayItWithWookies April 27, 2009 at 12:45 pm

[re=300481]Mr Blifil[/re]: The secret to the success of their marriage is that once they wake up with each other they know nothing worse is going to happen to them the rest of the day.

DustBowlBlues April 27, 2009 at 12:47 pm

[re=300511]Texan Bulldoggette[/re]: I know how you feel but if it helps any, David was two-timing us. He’s stopped emailing me, as well. Thank god my Nigerian boyfriend hasn’t dumped me.

bitchincamaro April 27, 2009 at 12:56 pm

Maybe they’ve got a chance to resurrect it by joining this new southern movement:

Bearbloke April 27, 2009 at 1:02 pm

‘Extinct’? Hardly – they’re merely brain-damaged… but now’s the time to stock up on wooden stakes!

SpikeyDog April 27, 2009 at 1:18 pm

They won’t be extinct until we get rid of every strand of DNA they have. A dinosaur may be able to be brought back to life.

Zadig April 27, 2009 at 1:21 pm

[re=300544]norbizness[/re]: That’s really the sad part. Although the whole “hate the gheys” thing is repulsive and awful to me, fixing it would net them what, a hundred votes nationally? It seems like most people secure enough to be openly gay are also sane enough to realize that the rest of the Republican platform is bullshit. And if the GOP changed, their base would be a little less, well, frothy.

The Republicans (as in the actual party leadership) just can’t win at this point. If they keep their current platform, they’ll have about a decade of screaming irrelevance before they die completely, probably. And if they change their platform, they will die much, much faster. Like, tomorrow.

TeddyS April 27, 2009 at 1:30 pm

New Republican Strategy: First, in 2010, get somebody elected to something in South Carolina. Second, build from there.

hobospacejunkie April 27, 2009 at 2:18 pm

Ha! The GOP is not extinct. I’m told by insiders it still stinks to high heaven!

Thank you, I’m here all week.

Try the vegan veal & be sure to tip your waitresses. No touching please.

[re=300432]finland[/re]: Right. I will believe it when Mark Penn spots it as a trend.

arclight April 27, 2009 at 2:27 pm

To be perfectly honest, if you’re going to be temporarily extinct, seven months after getting pounded in the ass in a Presidential election and still 18 months away from the next mid-term is a perfect time to be. Just wait…in 12 months or so, they’re going to come up with something. Granted, it’ll be something retarded, but it’s going to work on some sheeple. The question is, will it work on enough sheeple to get them within striking distance of winning (or stealing) a few races, or not?

Zadig April 27, 2009 at 3:36 pm

[re=300497]Johnny Zhivago[/re]: I call plagiarism. There is no way that this comment isn’t written verbatim on Red State, with certain spelling changes: “Acron” “vaksine” “NObama” and god knows how they spelled “distributed”.

whoohoo!! can we declare a national day of celebration or something?except I do worry about the zombi factor.

pat robertsons personal trainer April 27, 2009 at 6:03 pm

[re=300469]Custerwolf[/re]: or, much more likely, neither one of them believes a word what the other (and/or they themselves) say. and they’re both sorry ass bags of dicks.

June Cleaver 2.0 April 27, 2009 at 6:47 pm

[re=300606]Zadig[/re]: And that was basically McCain’s problem. If he had chosen someone like Tom Ridge (whom I prayed to God he didn’t pick) his base would say no; he had to pick someone like who he did pick, and ran away the last few thinking Republicans and generally indepenedent reasonable people. I don’t see how they can solve their problem without morphing into a party quite different from the existing party.

And I’m enjoying watching how they fix it. As Steele would say, you reap what you sow, baby!
