The liberals’ favorite “Republican,” Kathleen Parker:

In trying to understand the Republican Party’s internal battles, it helps to think of Michael and Sonny. Corleone, that is. …

That would be Ted Cruz, the Texas senator who grabbed headlines by speaking for 21 hours against Obamacare. Cruz is neither Michael nor Sonny but the star of his own movie. He’s Ted bin Laden — the guy who hands out suicide vests and then goes to lunch.

The family clash between the Corleone brothers is about to become bloodier, though it doesn’t have to. What needs to happen is for certain parties to become wiser and to absorb this simple truth: You cannot govern if you cannot win.

What a tool. Somebody tell her the world doesn’t need another Maureen Dowd.

Parker later writes that maybe it’s time for “Sonny” to take a ride through a toll plaza. If you’ve seen The Godfather you know what that means. Had Parker written that about a Dem the libs would be calling for her to be fired, but in this case it allows her to remain one of their favorite “Republicans,” just after John McCain.

    Kathleen Parker. She buys ink by the barrel and brains by the microgram.

    I talked to SPG yesterday. He still hasn't found a job. He said he gets a day of work now and then, but it's just enough to keep from starving. He said to tell everybody hello and keep the prayers coming.

    With friends like Kathleen, who needs enemies? Is it just me, or does the over-the-top name-calling school yard bullying close down the intelligent dialogue? A person who has a cogent and thoughtful point to make need not show contempt. An articulate argument speaks for itself. There is no need for a poke in the eye, Kathleen. You obviously, have nothing of substance to say.
