War Against The House Republican Leadership
RedState CEO Erick Erickson has issued “An Open Declaration of War Against The House Republican Leadership.”
The House Republican Leadership just does not get it and they will not take us seriously until we flex our muscle against them. We must fight the House GOP and we must fight today.
Today, I declare war on the Republican Leadership of the United States House of Representatives. We must scalp one member. That member’s name is Ken Calvert.
I’m neither a fan of “war” being used to describe domestic policy issue controversies where the application of violence would be decidedly inappropriate nor eager to see the Right Blogosphere go down the “you’re with us or you’re against us” route of the Netroots.
I do, however, concur that the House Republican leadership continues not to “get it” and find Calvert a worthy target of scorn, for reasons Erick’s posts details. Of course, if the “whuppin'” they took in November didn’t serve as a wake-up call, I doubt a bunch of emails and phone calls will do much, either.
