Are there white knights .... or even allies .... on the right?
Advertisements [?]
As the shit stacks deeper in the streets than the debris that was the 9th Ward, I am set to wonder ...... are there any white knights, or more, genuine allies, on the right?

In the Nixon years, it was the right who eventually led to his ouster. Whether for ideological, political, or altruistic reasons continues to be a subject of debate. Nonetheless, it happened.

Are there, today, any allies on the right?

I'm thinking of Bob Barr, as but one. The pit bull for the 'rule of law' during the Clinton impeachment, he has come out more than once in direct oppposition of Il Dunce's cabal.

I'm thinking of Trent Lott. Never a friend of the BFEE, and later a victim of their evil machinations (admittedly brought on by his own words), he has been sounding increasingly moderate. Dare I say reasonable?

Today, General Toady, Colin Powell, is making some serious noise about the 'lead up to the War'. So strong, in fact, that the Ice Princess of Feragamo was put off her scheduled and rehearsed talking points on the Sunday morning propaganda shows to refute what her predecessor said.

Pat Buchannon, Reactionary Xenophobe Extraordinaire and uberconservative, has never been on board with this crew.

His mentor, that aging scion of John Birch, William F. Buckley has been making noises. I'm not sure if it is a sour stomach or a sour outlook, but he's rumbling. And the noise isn't good for Junior or his enablers.

Even some of the chattering class have been at odds at times with the blastfaxer DailyPressOrders talking points that Rove churns out. Regular Joe started in the wake of Katrina and has become more strident in the months since. Even TheThugFormerlyKnownAsBowTieBoy hasn't been four square in their corner.

If these guys are even close to the lug nuts, the wheels will soon be off the bus ...... or ......

.... am I wishing for something that simply isn't there? Might this seeming discord simply be a way to institutionally take congressional candidates one step further away from Ceaser Disgustus' ingrown coat tails?

I really don't know.

What do you think?
