Priebus on the "biologically stupid things" Republicans said.

"If you go around and you say a lot of biologically stupid things and you poison the well and you create a caricature or you allow a caricature to become reality, you’re not going to win an election."

Paralysis by analysis.

It's one election and he's certainly doing his part to feed the media narrative about Republicans.

chickelit said...

The pushback in the comments at the linked story is worth a glance. I predict they will be replayed here.

Remember that Althouse is fond of provoking rightwing commenters to say "stupid things."

If Romney had won, the article would instead be about the stupid things Biden said.

Let's see...

Evolution has produced the wide variety of species of animals on the Earth. Usually by exploiting advantages that one small group has over the mainstream of the species.

But somehow, that has not happened to Homo Sapiens since the species differentiated 200000 years or so ago.

Except neither the Left wing nor the Right wing take much notice of the fact that some humans have an advantage in digesting lactose. Or digesting the carbohydrates in grain/sugar.

Or the special muscle fibers that give advantages in the 100-meter dash.

Or the ability to handle alcohol (without becoming an alcoholic).

Or mental skills associated with success certain branches of advanced math and physics?

That last one isn't as well-documented as the others.

But somehow, these biological facts are usually ignored by most intelligentsia in the United States. Whether Left or Right.

AJ Lynch said...

Preibus is right but have you ever noticed that a Dem will never ever criticize a fellow Dem?

While Repubs tend to be very hard on fellow Repubs and rarely do a kneejerk defense of a dumb statement by a Repub.

Nonapod said...

The great thinkers believe the GOP has an image problem. They're probably right, but what purpose does it serve to announce it in such a way? The "biologically stupid" phrase was first used by the RNC as a reference to Atkins rape statements, was it not?

====================
No, Republicans lost - all the minority and small group stuff like gays aside - because they lost the women's vote 55-45.

And the main reason is fear women have that right to life goobers from the ignorant sticks and repellant Santorums are going to control woman's choice matters, go back to Terri Schiavo zealotry, if Republicans are elected. Lecturing women they should be forced by law keep and love rapist's babies or give the thing up for adoption if it ever happened to them or their 13-year old daughter.
Braying to other Republicans that moderation on women's causes "betrays social conservatism and makes that candidate a RINO!!"

Or even if women don't believe it will happen, they dislike Republicans for wanting it so.

And this is not just the sentiment among women in Manhattan and Madison Wisconsin.
The two RTL goobers that were running for Senate went down in flames in Red State Missouri and Indiana after their RTL stupidity came up in the campaign.

Inga said...

I bet the Religious Right are clamoring for Whores to be their spokesman.

AprilApple said...

Both sides say stupid things. The GOP are the only people who get called on it.

AprilApple said...

Just so long as the democrat (no ID required!) vote fraud scheme keeps going, it doesn't matter who says what.

Ain't that the truth. Oftentimes, it seems like she belongs to the MSM.

She calls it cruel neutrality.

rcommal said...

Stupidity, like hope, springs eternal. And it's universal, too.

John Burgess said...

I'll shit on the religious right. They've done their best to destroy the Republican Party (of which I've been a member for 45+ years) by turning it into a cartoon of 'conservative' thought.

Preibus didn't do that; they did it to themselves and to me and my party. If the GOP cannot marginalize the religious right, then it should splinter and kick them to the curb.

Erika said...

Hey Inga, there are a ton of "religious right" posters on this very blog. Have you ever heard one of them defend or agree with whoresoftheinternet?

bagoh20 said...

I feel exactly the same about the economically stupid things that Democrats say all the way to the top and nearly uniformly throughout. That stupid is actually indicative of who they all are, and how they govern in a real and important way.

The fact that one rare kind of stupid is the face of one party, and the real and common stupid is not the face of the other is entirely due to media bias.

Inga said...

Erika, I was being ironic. :)

MadisonMan said...

Sort of o/t -- but I was listening to the story about the Lt Gov in FL who resigned recently because of links to some Veterans' group that was stealing from Veterans -- I think -- and they never mentioned the party of the Lt. Gov. I think this story was on WBBM in Chicago.

And she's a Republican!

Anyway, Priebus, to his credit, didn't whine about Media slant. It might be there, but if you're aware of it, you have to tailor your message so as to neutralize it.

bagoh20 said...

When the President says we don't have a spending problem, how is anything anyone says on biology even close to that stupid or that dangerously irresponsible?

bagoh20 said...

And Cedarford is right for a change that women voting is the problem when they pick the guy handing them more credit cards over the one saying we need to cut back here sweetie.

Women, once a force for restraint and responsibility, have actually equalized themselves to be less helpful than the men they used to moderate.

Lem said...

Priebus Nicodemus

rcommal said...

My, oh, my have some things changed around here.

traditionalguy said...

Priebus is just saying it's not his fault.

Did the chicken or the egg come first here. Did the GOP first say be self reliant in an age of no employment but Government free money for all, or did the Dems first say there are Rich people holding the people's money from them ?

Both happened at the same time.

The abortion extremists did scare women needlessly.

mark said...

Democrats say "biologically stupid things" all the time. Just see their comments in Colorado about rape, Obama's defense of murder like Dr. Kermit and his band of liberal psychos, or any comment by Cedarford.

Being stupid and nasty doesn't seem to hurt them. I wonder why.

AllenS said...

If only Republicans knew the difference between "legitimate rape", and "rape-rape"

Inga said...

Guess what just happened in North Dakota?

Hunter said...

What Rience Priebus has said about the party is true. But... dude, you have been the chairman for two years? Telling us about it as all well and good. What have you done, and what are you planning to do in order to fix these problems?

Oh, you're going to double down on gay marriage and the party of small government will still push for laws that interfere with peoples' control over their own lives.

Okay then.

Alex said...

whores = moby.

Alex said...

North Dakota is very conservative Inga.

YoungHegelian said...

Of course, the RNC played no roll at all in last November's loss. No, none at all.

Why do you ask?

Corporate post-mortems serve a worthy cause, but even more useful would have been major players in the Republican Party kicking the ass of the Romney Campaign over things like circle-jerk contracts between the consultants, muuuuch better new media outreach to EVERYBODY, not just minorities, not hammering Obama on the deficit, Benghazi, etc, and, stupidest of all, not even campaigning at all for the last few weeks.

The Republican hierarchy wants to find someone else to blame, but the truth is both of the last two "approved" Republican presidential candidates ran bad campaigns.

phx said...

How come you never hear prominent Democrats criticizing their fellows in the media?

"Party Uber Alles and all that."


Well, if your party actually won...

Inga said...

Whores isn't a Moby, Alex you of all people should know that.

edutcher said...

Whores isn't vindicating anybody.

He's a moby.

Not unlike the She Devil of the SS.

And, if we're looking for Democrats saying "biologically stupid" things, our Fearless Leader has struck again (I'm surprised God isn't at war with us).

This time it's something about getting the Israeli-Palestinian blood feud down to a US-Canada level (have we been at war with the Canucks for 4000 years?).

AprilApple said...


and remember - Paul Ryan is an "extremist!" with a budget proposal that balances in 10 years.

Crazy!
Much better to embrace Patty Murray's bankruptsy.

@trad guy:

Whoresoftheinternet is proving Priebus to be 100% correct.

--Please show your work, asshole.

and he is loving every minute of it.
--When you're Cassandra, despair, anger, and mockery are your only defenses against insanity.

Isn' t that called being a Moby?
--No. I mean every word that I say.

Alex said...

Inga - there is a difference. You won't ever see me spouting vile racist things when I'm in my right-wing mode. Neither when in left-wing mode. Oh boy do I have modes.

MPD FTW!

chickelit said...

Plus ND change, plus c'est la chosen meme.

bagoh20 said...

"Guess what just happened in North Dakota?"

Erring on the side of life over choice. If you are going to take away someones rights by law, right to life trumps all others. Still erring in my opinion, but if a woman wants to kill her fetus, she can at least make the effort to take it for an interstate car ride first.

whoresoftheinternet said...

@Inga the Lying Obama Whore:

Whores isn't a Moby, Alex you of all people should know that.
--One of the few truthful things thsi hateful bitch has ever said.

@Alex:

You won't ever see me spouting vile racist things .
---Black people have lower IQs and are more prone to violence on average.

Fact. Racist AND true. Your mind is now blown.

edutcher said...

More biological stupidity:

Barry tells the Israelis to put themselves in the Palestinians shoes.

This guy needs every media outlet he can get to cover for him.

"Isn' t that called being a Moby?

A distinction without a difference in this context.

bagoh20 said...

"This guy needs every media outlet he can get to cover for him."

DONE.

Inga said...

Where to begin?

Edutcher it's time for "The Blond" to change your Depends.

Bagoh, to grant Personhood to a Zygote is so so intelligent. Why can't right wingers be reasonable? Why can't a fetus (baby) be granted Personhood after the first trimester? This move will make the Pro Choice movement more determined. Abortion after the first trimester becoming illegal, now has been set back, I don't know how many years.

As for Whores, he and his kind will ensure that Democrats win Presidential elections for many many years to come.

You're worse than a moby. You're actually boring.

PS And it's The Blonde. Men are blond, women are blonde.

Why does it not surprise me you don't get that?

Inga said...

Edbutcher, there are very serious and important things going on in the world and this country, no one cares about the spelling of "the blond". Why don't you go take a nap and stop polluting this thread with personal insults and comments, so we can discuss things that affect us all as Americans. I will ignore you for the sake of the thread and this blog.

Baron Zemo said...

The more things change rc....the more things stay the same.

Nathan Alexander said...

Guess what just happened in North Dakota?

And Inga chooses to betray the principles of her chosen profession to demonstrate a great example of "biologically stupid things liberals said for $500".

I guess "First, do no harm" just isn't all that important when compared to complete and total selfishness.

Inga said...

Nathan, there are conservatives here who feel the SAME way I do about abortion. Abortion after the first trimester could become illegal if not for extremists in your own party. Granting Personhood to a Zygote will not eradicate abortion. It ensures that the Pro Choice movement doubles down.

bagoh20 said...

Inga, It's not like the fetus has won anything. Mom can still just take it for drive like an unwanted dog and dump it in the next state.

bagoh20 said...

It would be fair if a fetus could decide which state to be conceived in... or which womb.

Inga said...

Bagoh, you're still missing my point. Your Party is being taken over by extremists. You don't have any concerns that Priebus may actually have a point?

Marshal said...

Nonapod said...
The great thinkers believe the GOP has an image problem. They're probably right, but what purpose does it serve to announce it in such a way?


Maybe it's the only way to get Republicans to consider the consequences of nominating total fucking idiots.

Nathan Alexander said...

Inga, tu quoque is widely recognized as a logical fallacy.

What part of "First, do no harm" do you not understand?

And why are using the term "zygote" for humans with heartbeats and measurable brain activity?

Is that transparent attempt at deception your guilty conscience admitting you are morally wrong?

Nathan Alexander said...

Inga,
A human zygote exists for about four days.

I look forward to Democrats pushing legislation that limits abortion to just the first 96 hours after the sperm enters the ovum.

When will you make that a condition of voting Democrat?

Because if you don't, one will suspect you know you are morally reprehensible, but lying to try to avoid admitting it.

Inga said...

As I said Nathan, there are conservatives here on Althouse that have said in numerous threads that they agree with my stance on abortion. But then again, perhaps you consider THEM morally reprehensible also.

Your Party is divided between two factions, I wonder which one will win?

Nathan Alexander said...

Bagoh, you're still missing my point. Your Party is being taken over by extremists.

This is bullshit. I mean, I don't blame you for repeating it, because that is the liberal talking point.

But what has the GOP changed on?

Liberals have moved WAY left.
- Every major Democrat politician was against SSM just a year ago.
- Democrats have added partial birth abortion to women's right to choose
- Democrats have added govt funding to abortion rights
- Democrats have vastly increased deficit spending as part of their platform
- Democrats have pushed to return to 50s-era tax rates, to increase the progressive nature of taxes
- Democrats have added no-questions-asked, no-strings-attached funding to any/all green projects
- Democrats have demonized carbon-based energy and are actively driving carbon-based energy companies out of business
- Democrats have decided there is a right to "free" contraception
- Democrats have redefined "freedom or religion" to restrict it to "freedom of worship" only, and refuses to recognize religious exceptions
- Democrats are using federal funding to force States to fund Planned Parenthood
- Democrats have achieved National Health Care and refuse to address or fix its (now) obvious flaws

In all these things, the Democrats and liberals have moved left.

The GOP hasn't changed its stance on abortion.
The GOP hasn't changed its stance on attempting a balanced budget.
The GOP hasn't changed its stance on reducing spending.
The GOP hasn't changed its stance on attempting to keep taxes lower and flatter. The GOP hasn't attempted to lower taxes since 2002.
The GOP hasn't begun any military involvement anywhere since 2003.
The GOP hasn't changed its stance on abortion.
The GOP has actually become more racially diverse than Democrats.

...so how have any "extremists" taken over the GOP? In what area has the GOP moved rightward at all?

Answer: it hasn't. And no one can come up with even 3 valid examples of rightward movement.

mark said...

Inga said...
Your Party is divided between two factions, I wonder which one will win?

The sick part is that the Democrats are not divided. They, like the President, support laws to protect psychos like Dr. Kermit Gosnell. Nothing better then making sure to *not* protect children after being born.

It's the Democrat way.

Baron Zemo said...

The Democrats are all baby killers. In that you are correct.

Their next standard bearer Dandy Andy Cuomo can't find a fetus he wouldn't want to abort.

edutcher said...

Inga said...

Edbutcher, there are very serious and important things going on in the world and this country,

Yes, and we're trying to keep people like you from fucking them up any worse.

And the name isn't that hard to get. Your Maoist "despise them ideologically" tack makes you look like a dork.

no one cares about the spelling of "the blond".

Obviously, I do.

Why don't you go take a nap and stop polluting this thread with personal insults and comments, so we can discuss things that affect us all as Americans.

I was about to suggest the same thing to you.

But where do you get off including yourself as an American?

I will ignore you for the sake of the thread and this blog.

Oh, wow, golly gee, that's awfully white of you!

Nathan Alexander said...

As I said Nathan, there are conservatives here on Althouse that have said in numerous threads that they agree with my stance on abortion. But then again, perhaps you consider THEM morally reprehensible also.

What is your point?

That it is okay for you to lie to support a morally reprehensible support for murder just because some people who claim to be conservative are pro-choice?

The GOP is a big tent. We tend to enforce ideological purity less than liberals.

Maybe they are socially liberal but fiscally conservative?

Why should it matter? A vote for the GOP is a vote against the tyranny and deception of the Democrat Party. We can hash out the abortion issue later.

The point is, the GOP is for expanding the human right to life, and even though there is disagreement how much that expansion should be or how far it should go, we at least agree in the direction.

Your party is represented by Dr. Kermit Gosnell. You must be very proud.

Inga said...

Priebus is a brave man, or a foolish one. Surely he knows what he's up against, all he has to do is read the comments section of Althouse.

whoresoftheinternet said...

Aw, look, Inga the bloody baby killer and liar, is whining that she can't kill a -day-old baby legally.

The man is keeping her old, wrinkly ass down!

Meanwhile, her dead husband is glad he's six feet under this hag and the mess she's caused.

Priebus is a brave man.
---Yes, it's so brave to kill babies. So, so brave. (/sarcasm).

Wait, I realize you are too stupid to understand sarcasm directed at you. So here:

It is not brave to support the murder of children for fun and profit. It is evil and cowardly.

Enjoy hell, babykiller.

Ann Althouse said...

Please don't talk to Whores. He is a moby -- and clearly a bad faith commenter and we are deleting him.

whoresoftheinternet said...

Easy Annie A, I am NOT a moby, nor am I in bad faith. Look up the damn definitions of words, "law professor," before you use them. You'd think a "law professor" would think the "insults" she hurls would be at least "accurate."

Moron.

Yes, because in the lite Democrats ever show some spine, people like the She Devil of the SS are screwed.

bagoh20 said...

Well Garage, we can also see why you need to believe he's a conservative. Those stereotypes are really hard to confirm with real people.

bagoh20 said...

@Nathan Alexander @3:21

Well done, but facts are really a pain in the ass, which is why no lefty will respond to that comment.

The GOP position in general has been good and consistent whether it wins or not. The Dems change to win, whether it's right or not. I don't blame either for our problems. Its the voters who have screwed up, and they who will pay the price.

All the GOP can do is offer an alternative, but if they can choose to be led by a resume of lifelong selfish failure over one of incredibly rare philanthropy and success, then what can you really do for them? Wait for the voters to wise up, I'm afraid. They will eventually, but at what cost?

Gahrie said...

What Priebus ignores is the fact that most of those stupid statements were gotcha moments exploited by a hostile press against Republicans.

The problem will persist until conservatives infiltrate the media and bring balance to the coverage.

Inga said...

Ah that silly Priebus. Ignore him, there is nothing at all to fix. Everything is OK, proceed, as you were.

Inga - the Democrat party was taken over by extremists in the 70s.

This accelerated in the '00's which is why they left me.

Chickelit, he's nobody, nobody at all, don't be concerned, all is under control.

Gahrie said...

Ah that silly Priebus. Ignore him, there is nothing at all to fix. Everything is OK, proceed, as you were.

No there most certainly is a problem. But the problem isn't the Republican party or Republican candidates, the problem is a hostile media that will exploit any opening to destroy Republicans.

The answer isn't to change Republicans, the answer is to change the media.

Remember, the extremists are the people that want to preserve traditional American institutions, NOT the people that want to destroy them.

Yep. Like Freedom. And Life. And Pursuing Happiness. Only extreme Republicans support those traditional American things.

Democrats. Not so much. They are more of the -- "Put down that soda! She paid for an abortion ... She gets an abortion. Even if the kid is kicking and screaming before you tossed her on the shelf!" -- types.

So Mark, how do you account for the Pro Choice conservatives in your own Party? They exist.

I do suppose Republicans aren't much for being a Party of taking pictures of your genitals and sending it to female coworkers. Or visiting underage prostitutes. Or being a Klan grand poo-ba. We tend to frown on those things.

So, if you are for those things. Then Democrats have a corner in their tent just for you!

Inga said...

But they do have a wide stance Mark, lol.

Inga said...

And they do encourage their mistresses to have abortions.

Inga said...

Oh and don't they like writing dirty little love notes to their pages?

Oh yes and they like to say they are hiking in the smokies, while visiting their mistresses in Europe. Oops.

Face it cons, the two-party system is done. Oh sure, repubs might keep the house of representatives a couple more years, and governors & legislatures in insignificant flyover places like Dogpatch or Wisconsin.

But it's clear we've seen our last ever repub POTUS and senate majority.

mark said...

Inga said...
So Mark, how do you account for the Pro Choice conservatives in your own Party? They exist.

Yes. We do. Republicans have a bigger tent than Democrats.

I don't see any fiscally sane or Pro Life Democrats out there any more. Even to the point of life AFTER being born. The President as a senator came out against that.

And the good Democrat Dr. Gosnell is an example that it is an actual problem of murdering children. But, in the opinion of our President ... they did pay for an abortion. So why pass laws if the child happens to be actually born alive? Kill the kid anyway.

Inga said...

Oh yes and they can lay claim to he who must not be named. You know who.

There are plenty of Democrats that would be willing to look at limiting abortion to the first trimester. To continue to lie about what many many liberals feel about late term abortion is just par for the course for some conservatives.

There are bases. There are activists. There are power brokers. There are still two national parties (and for the foreseeable future). And there are many other things. What there is NOT is any damn big tent as far as the eye can see.

Enjoy hell, bitch!

Cedarford said...

The problem Republicans have is that in much of the country, they cannot be fiscally conservative and socially and militarily moderate against a Religious Right Base that screams any moderation on any matter is betrayal and RINO.

Because those jerks control the primaries in many states. And they cheer the Akins and Randolph Terrys and Santorums and Bachmanns like mad.

To them, Ronald Reagan, if he wasn't so blindly revered - would be called a stinking lousy RINO who betrayed Barry Goldwater and The John Birch Society - if they examined his policies.

SOJO said...

This is true (FTA): you’ve got a party that hasn’t been deep enough in the communities on a permanent basis,” he continued. “So you can’t really play the game of defense when something is said, because if your relationships aren’t authentic enough in those communities.


Unknown said...

Also Sprach Inga, ‘Bagoh, to grant Personhood to a Zygote is so so intelligent. Why can't right wingers be reasonable? Why can't a fetus (baby) be granted Personhood after the first trimester?”

So Inga's authorities are granting personhood now? I thought we pretty much got over that after 1945. Everything old is new again.

Inga said...

No Unknown, they aren't MY authorities. The Republicans in North Dakota granted Personhood to babies from the moment of conception forward, thereby circumventing legal abortion.

whoresoftheinternet said...

@Inga the lying, murdering Obama whore:

--Just like Obama is Not My President.

granted Personhood to babies from the moment of conception forward, thereby circumventing legal abortion.
----Just like Obama and the rest of left have denied person-hood to them and granted it to everyone who has been cut from their umbilical cord.

Deciding when a person is alive is not above President Nigger's pay grade. They are now within the purview of the entire federal government, including Stepin Fetchit, courtesy of Roe v. Wade.

Suck it, bitch.

Most of the women who have abortions should have abortions. They are like those women in Roman brothels who threw their children in the sewer. They should not reproduce.

Yes, but the Libertarians do seem genuinely interested in reducing the size and power of Government.

Oh, and apropos the subject of the thread, Libertarians have some pretty entertaining intra-party brawls, too.

Inga said...

I tend to agree with you Ken.

Unknown said...

So, Inga, what is the logic for granting personhood only after 3 months? What event occurs at that time that suddenly initiates an invasive tumor into the human race? What was the little homunculus before that?

ken in sc said...

Inga said...
I tend to agree with you Ken.

I'll stick with the Christians who went into the sewer to save the kids. We should measure how good our society is by how we care for the children we now clap ourselves on the back for killing. Like the children of poor.

It is just a sales technique to evangelize eugenics. "If you kill poor kids you have less problems." Of course they don't put it exactly that way. That would be a poor sales pitch. They rather say "Help the moms and society by having fewer kids they can't raise anyway" or "They [ie: poor / blacks / christians / conservatives / jews / irish / or whoever] should not reproduce."

PS. Eugenics suck. A good book to read is "Eugenics and Other Evils".

So, Inga, what is the logic for granting personhood only after 3 months?

There can be no such logic.

It is just the desire of an adult to not be burdened with a child. Professor Singer is at least consistent in his arguments to kill newborns and toddlers.

But in the end the "personhood" argument is not based in biology. But rather self interest for independence from a child. Either a society's independence (which is what Eugenics really is) or a parent's independence.

So we slap on dates of 3 months or 6 months or full term or newborn or 1 years old or ...

Biologically none hold water. We just want the same "Freedom" as the Romans. To toss our responsibilities into the sewer.

And this argument then moves onto adults at the end of their lives. Just as Professor Singer struggled with being partially responsible to care for a mother with Alzheimers. And with the desire to kill her.

Oh life would be so much easier to just kill the baby boomers when they get feeble. Would it not?

I wonder if the baby boomers will be OK with our definition of feeble though.

Remember, the extremists are the people that want to preserve traditional American institutions, NOT the people that want to destroy them.

What the hell does this even mean, beyond the rhetoric?

Inga, I'm hoping you are getting something out of it, but why are you even stooping to engage on this subject with some of these people, and I use the term loosely?

Akin was the Democrats choice of a Republican to run against. That said his own Party officials made sure to sink him when just a little research could have done some good. At the very least shutting up would have been a better move if the intention was to win the seat.

What they did do points to the intentions of the heads of the Party as being something other than winning political races.

"Some very specific Republican representatives said some stupid things."

"Republicans say stupid things."

"Republicans are stupid."

Inferred media equivalency; they know their audience.

What a terrific sounding book - the water cycle is cool in and of itself and a book which teaches it in such a fun poetic way is mega-cool.
