There was an article recently on FoxNews.com that made my blood boil. Let me share the article with you. Usually, I will post a whole article and then comment afterward, but this one is simply too overflowing with nonsense. I’m going to have to comment far more frequently than usual to handle this one. My comments on the article will be written in bold italics.
Disrespectful Libertarians Hijack CPAC Poll — And Its Mission
Published February 14, 2011
The top three winners of this weekend’s CPAC straw poll will not win the 2012 presidential nomination. And if any of the top three do break through to prove that prediction wrong, none of them will go on to win the White House in 2012.
First off, Kev, are you some magical being, a visitor from the future, or the great Miss Cleo? You must be, to make such absolutely certain predictions about the future. The fact is, if any of those people do prove your first prediction wrong, you are only helping the liberals to prove your second prediction right.
This year’s top three placeholders in the poll were Ron Paul, Mitt Romney and Gary Johnson. Ron Paul and Mitt Romney repeat their standing from the 2010 poll as No. 1 and No. 2, respectively.
If the results of this straw poll do not sufficiently demonstrate the bizarre nature and overall oddity of this year’s gathering of “conservatives,” nothing else can.
Notice how McCullough throws the word “conservatives” in quotations, as if to say that the winners of the CPAC poll aren’t really conservatives at all. This is the root problem of McCullough’s train of thought. He apparently thinks that HIS definition of conservative is the only plausible definition. Before we get into McCullough’s definition, however, let’s see what the Merriam-Webster dictionary says:
2a – disposition in politics to preserve what is established.
2b – a political philosophy based on tradition and social stability, stressing established institutions, and preferring gradual development to abrupt change.
