    Whoops, forgot Bachmann, she is for sure a tea party favorite too.
    Palin can't run now since she missed the date when she would have had to drop out of her Fox News gig under our election laws, and Cain/Bachmann both have a snowballs chance in hell of winning.

    Really? I just saw her on Fox recently. She said it was still way early and she hadn't decided yet.
    I think I'll go look for your avatar.

Surprise surprise as Gomer Pyle used to say.

    The real question for you is why you are so hyper sensitive every time this perfectly acceptable term in political science and sociology comes up here? It has been used for over half a century now and even inspired universities to offer courses in Political Sociology using the work of Hoffer and his TRUE BELIEVER concept as part of the syllabus along with the work of Mills, Domhoff and others. But for some reason, for you, its like waving a red flag when you hear it.


    Dude, even left wingers make fun of you. How can you not see it? This "true believer" nonsense is so ironic it's a joke.


    I asked you this before and i'll do it again, name 5 right wingers on this forum you do not think are "true believers".

    Hell name 5 right wingers you respect.

    You can include right-libertarian if you want.

    Then you can add election law to the long list of things the imbecile Palin knows nothing about:

    "Effective today, March 2nd, Fox News has suspended its contributor arrangements with former House Speaker Newt Gingrich and former Pennsylvania Senator Rick Santorum, both of whom have signaled possible runs for the president. The suspension is effective for 60 days, then on May 1st their contracts will be terminated unless they notify Fox that they are not running for president."

    Explain it to you?

    Check out every fact that have in the story and show where they are wrong. If you do not like that source because it upsets you ideologically, just google "Michigan emergency manager law - and you will have a legion of sources which give you the same factual information. Are you actually disputing this Republican power grab?

    Making childish insults hardly advances your 'case' - if indeed you had one.

    I explained to you before, with plenty of verifiable proof, that the term TRUE BELIEVER has been around for over a half a century now. It is an accepted and well used term in the field of political science, sociology and political sociology. I gave you references, citations and quotes.

    The real question here is why you seem to see red every time I use the term? For some reason known only to the inner workings of your thought processes, you see it as something other than what it is and have a purely emotional reaction to it as evidenced by this childish need to insult me.

    Then you engage in these theatrics which have nothing to do with the use of the term. Name five right wingers I respect?!?!?!? Name five right wingers on this forum who are not True Believers?!?!?!?

    You really must believe I have made some deep study of people here and can get out my charts and graphs and present the character analysis studies of the membership. Your request is a blatant attempt to bait me into making personal attacks on others. And it is not going to work.

    Now I believe the next step is for you to issue another one of of your last, final, no more second chances, this is it, I'm not kidding this time, you had better watch out, warnings to me.

    How about you answer the questions I posted in my last post?


    Especially the topical one, which one of the listed potential candidates above would not fall into a "true believer" candidate. What makes that candidate so?




    Simple really.

    Re: Who do you think will win the Republican nomination?

    I voted for Pawlenty, because the poll is who do I think will win the nomination. If it was who do I want to win the nomination it would be Romney, but I don't think the populist/bigot base the Republicans have been courting lately would allow a Mormon to win the nomination.

    Pawlenty is so perfectly bland that he's got a good shot at winning by default. All the other big candidates are too problematic, the others are too obscure. Pawlenty strikes the right balance of fame and WASP-hood to be able to take the nomination. He will lose to Obama.
