There is a great article in the FNP this morning about the calls for unity among the local Republican Party. Yesterday we spoke of the Delauter and Williams supporters who are now throwing their support behind third party contender Earl Robbins. Since historically a third party candidate has always had the effect that one wishes they would.
Anyhoo, without a hint of irony Kirby shows us everything that is wrong with the Republican party and a incoherent philosophy in these here times. In his first breath he claims:
“I made up my mind weeks ago that if I lost, I’d support Earl,” Delauter said. “I like that he’s laid-back, and he sees things that need to be addressed and wants to address them. I think he has Frederick County’s best interests in mind.”
Oh really? Was Earl going to drop out if Kirby won? Hmmm. Well, after stating that he would not back the chosen Republican for CE, he goes on to lament the lack of unity himself!
The party has not done a good job of presenting a unified front locally, or at the federal level, Delauter said. He pointed to President Donald Trump “doing everything he said he would do,” but still not getting full support among Republicans as an example of that.
“That’s the one thing Democrats have always done a really good job of that the Republican Party really hasn’t,” he said. “If the Democrats had someone like Trump, who came through on everything he said he’d do, they’d be totally behind them. I don’t know why Republicans haven’t.”
So right after telling us all that he will not help in unifying the local ticket, he laments the lack of unity nationally? How do ideas work again?
We came across this wonderful article about the meltdown of the Congressional Republicans that truly reflects what is wrong with the party today. Do we even have to point out the startlingly lack of awareness Kirby possesses to not understand why people would not support Trump? Of course not!
This whole debacle also reminded us of a skit on Dave Chapelle’s show years ago. Charlie Murphy, Eddie’s brother, would do a segment entitled “Charlie Murphy’s True Hollywood Stories.” In one segment he described how Rick James came over to Eddie’s house and smeared mud all over his white couch. In the same sentence Rick James both denied and admitted to doing so!
Really people. You cannot both lament and support doing the same action. That’s not how any of this works! But it is fun to watch!
