You don’t get to shove candidates down our throats anymore. We aren’t going to sit down for it anymore.
Gone are the days when you get to trot out Karl Rove like a fairy princess to have him wave his magic wand over the heads of the “yes men” GOP and get what you want.
And let’s talk about what you want.
The political elite in both parties want one thing – yes men (and women). They want to be able to tell a lobbyist they can deliver votes and then deliver them. The lobbyists’ livelihoods depend on it, and the GOP’s credibility with the lobbyists (and their purse strings) depends on it.
The power brokers in Washington, D.C., have their tentacles in state governments around the country, and they love having control of my state, California.
Both the GOP establishment and the Dems depend on big-government spending, so they love people like Gov. Jerry Brown. Sure, the GOP would prefer to have their empty suit in that office, but a big-spending liberal comes in as a close second.
