Surprise! Washington Post Warns of GOP ‘Danger’, ‘Nutballs’ in 9/12 Event

September 13, 2009

It’s always touching when leftist publications like the Washington Post purport to advise the GOP on matters of image and perception, isn’t it?  Give them credit this time, though; they managed to find a Republican willing to do the dirty work for them:

Mark McKinnon, a former adviser to  Sen. John McCain (Ariz.) and other Republicans, said there is an “opportunity for Republicans” to tap into legitimate fears about an overreaching federal government. But he said that “right-wing nutballs are aligning themselves with these movements” and are dominating media coverage.

“It’s bad for Republicans because in the absence of any real leadership, the freaks fill the void and define the party,” McKinnon said.

Bear in mind that Mark McKinnon is the same man who resigned from the McCain “campaign” because he couldn’t bring himself to make ads critical of Obama.  In other words, take what this man says with a grain of salt. 

Oddly, similar left-wing events never seem to be in imminent danger of being dominated by the kookier elements in their ranks.  Left-wing protests are typically treated as the gold standard of political activism and free speech in action.

Hey, you know what would be super helpful?  It would be great if leftist rags like the WaPo didn’t presume to give us conservatives advice on how to organize and operate.  The last time anyone seriously afforded their viewpoints any weight, we ended up with the abysmal McCain campaign of ’08.  So I suppose what I’m saying is thanks, but no thanks.
