Republicans Declare “No One” Their New Leader

A new Gallup poll shows who Republicans have claimed as their leader. One of the most obvious things to note about the poll is that "no one" came in first with 17 percent. Mr. No One (pictured on the right) was followed by Rush Limbaugh and Newt Gingrich both tied at 10 percent. Never fear, the dark lord Dick Cheney was close behind the other two GOP fossils with 9 percent. Here are some of the things that I found most interesting about the poll:

  • George W. Bush brought in less than 1 percent

  • The last Republican candidate for President, John McCain came in at only 6 percent

  • His running mate, Sarah Palin was not even on the list

  • Walking train wreck and RNC Chairman Michael Steele scored a pathetic 2 percent (Wisconsin's Reince Priebus must be so proud!)

  • One percent of Republicans think that "everyone" is in charge of their party.

And now back by popular demand!

You are using a poll to determine leadership? Who was the leader of the democrat party when Bush was president? Ah yes, Obama was still in congressional diapers, so would it have been Pelosi? Or perhaps the crazy Al Gore?

There is a lot of change going on in Congress and in our own legislature for that matter, so why not find a worthy topic to analyze like universal health care, cap in trade, limiting executive pay, or Doyle's massive budget deficit rather than diverting focus to a party that fell out of power with a funny caption?

give me a did a poll on this subject and the results are interesting so I blogged on it and had a little fun with it. Get over it already. Sometimes that is all that I have time for.

I don't think that I suggested that this was some work of great substance. Over the years I have done many blog postings on the issues like those that you list along with orginal research and many other things. If that was all that I did, this blog would read like a dictionary. Maybe that would excite you but I think you are in the minority.

I understand what it's like to be limited on time, but you are following the DNC talking points.

Right now, the DNC is focusing on the republic leadership all the while Obama's stimulus policy is failing, banks are trying to give their TARP funds back, and our unemployment rate has surpassed White House predictions. There are some serious, precedent breaking failures occurring with the new administration, and all the democrats can talk about is whether the Republican party has any leadership? Give me a friggen break! These are diversionary tactics.

This whole "party of no" is meant to be a smokescreen to conceal the fact that the "party of yes" isn't making anything better. In fact, they are proposing so much spending during a time of recession, it would make the average American tremble. But hey, let's keep up the democrat talking point rather than focus on deeper, more important issues.

And here I thought liberals were supposed to be open minded to different opinions.
