Marooned from a sinking ship

You've just been on the wrong side of a crushing electoral defeat -- for the second time in a row. Your party is being pushed into a smaller and smaller geographic region. Your party is in the minority on many of the most important issues of the day. The demographic trend is against you. What, then, to do? Do you need to ask? It's purge time in Wingnuttia!

RedState is pleased to announce it is engaging in a special project: Operation Leper.

We're tracking down all the people from the McCain campaign now whispering smears against Governor Palin to Carl Cameron and others. Michelle Malkin has the details.

We intend to constantly remind the base about these people, monitor who they are working for, and, when 2012 rolls around, see which candidates hire them. Naturally then, you'll see us go to war against those candidates.


Don't make us add you to our list. Do you really want to be next to Kathleen Parker in the leper colony?

Yikes, a leper colony's leper colony. Rejected by the loony bin. Voted off the crazy island. Persona non grata in hell.

With oblivious arrogance like this is it any wonder that these people have lost the good will of the American public? I'm sure that it's good business for redstate and Michelle Malkin and the rest of them to drum up these little vendettas and keep the rubes riled up, but it's a terrible way to reach out to the voters you need to re-establish some kind of electoral parity. At this rate these guys won't be out in the wilderness: they'll make a wilderness of where they live.

I doubt this will last very long or come to very much besides putting some extra scratch in Malkin's pocket, but there's a Senate seat in play in Georgia, where all this energy could be put to much better use.
