GOPUSA ILLINOIS Daily Clips - November 13, 2008

CHICAGO TRIBUNE
-- DIERSEN HEADLINE: Tired of creating "good little Democrats," Democrat parents and teachers in Oak Park now create hate-filled intolerant thugs who demonize, denigrate, and threaten Republicans. They a) call Republicans "very stupid," b) say they should "go die," c) say they "should be killed," d) say they should be put up on a cross for their political beliefs, e) say they "should be crucified," f) say they should be "burned," g) say they are "filthy-rich," and h) say they support plans to "kill Obama."

-- JONAH GOLDBERG: (Bush's) much-touted "compassionate conservatism" was rejected by many on the right as a slap to traditional conservatives and an intellectual betrayal of Reaganite principles. It was a rhetorical capitulation to Bill Clinton's feel-your-pain political posturing and an embrace of the assumptions that have been the undergirding of liberalism since the New Deal. That is, the measure of one's compassion is directly proportionate to one's support for large and costly government programs.

-- DIERSEN HEADLINE: Elephants are the symbol of the Republican Party. No Republican would ever mistreat an elephant. So the proposed elephant ordinance must be aimed at anti-Republicans.

GOPUSA ILLINOIS
-- Virtually all the members of the news media who claim to be non-partisan did everything they could to help a) McCain win the Republican presidential primary election, b) help Obama win the Democrat presidential primary election, and c) help Obama win the general election. Many members of the news media helped McCain because they viewed him as being an anti-Republican. If you do things to help a candidate win an election, you are a partisan. Members of the news media who claim to be non-partisan should be required to complete this questionnaire:
http://graphics8.nytimes.com/packages/pdf/national/13apply_questionnaire.pdf, post their detailed responses on their website, and update that website posting at least annually. Your GOPUSA Illinois Editor does not claim to be non-partisan. - Dave Diersen

There's even a spot on this blue bandwagon for formerly red suburbanites. Whoa! Not so fast, gays.

-- Obama friend Giannoulias says it’s all ‘unbelievable’ - Bernard Schoenburg
http://www.sj-r.com/opinions/x541348277/Bernard-Schoenburg-Obama-friend-Giannoulias-says-it-s-all-unbelievable
-- FROM THE ARTICLE: Republicans, meanwhile, had to scramble more to find a replacement for Watson, who announced just last week he wouldn’t return as leader after suffering a stroke. Their winner needs just 12 of the 22 GOP votes, but there’s no frontrunner right now. They also hoped for a quick choice without any infighting and hope for more cooperation under new Senate leadership, while acknowledging there’s a downside to Democrats working together. “They could all get along, and then I think we’d really be run in the ground,” said Sen. Dale Risinger, R-Peoria. “The good news is that they don’t get along, and so nothing happens. That’s better than some of the things they want to do.”

-- DIERSEN HEADLINE: Increasingly, it seems that Hispanics are race based voters, that is, they vote for whichever political party or whichever politician promises to give them the most preference. The Democrat Party and Obama promised to give them more preference than the Republican Party and McCain promised to give them, so it seems that they voted for Democrats and they voted for Obama.
