Rules Guiding Establishment GOP

There are too many Obamacare sucks stories out there to add anything new at this point, so I found this list of “10 Rules in the Establishment Republican Handbook” to be worth adding to the echo chamber.

Here’s a synopsis:

  1. There is nothing ever worth fighting for except Democrat policies
  2. You must systematically destroy any person, place, or thing that excites conservatives
  3. You’re a winner just by virtue of being an Establishment Republican
  4. Trash conservatives, but hold your fire against Democrats
  5. Communication skills are completely irrelevant
  6. Don’t freak people out by discussing how bad things are really getting
  7. Accept that conservatism can’t win
  8. Moderate is always better than conservative
  9. It’s fine to lie to your base
  10. Don’t make the mistake of talking about conservative principles when it matters

While there are some redundancies it pretty much nails the McCain-McConnell-PeterKing faction’s mantra during the latest shutdown.
