Good Golly, Miss Molly! Did He Say, "Yield"?

Was Sen. Cornyn sucking on a hookah when he made this ass backwards pronouncement?

"Folks on the right, and frankly I'm one of them in terms of voting record, have to yield to the world as it is and not necessarily how they wish it would be," Cornyn told Reuters for a story about centrist Rep. Mike Castle's (R) bid for Senate next year in Delaware.
If I understand, and I hope I don't, Cornyn is saying that if a voter's candidate of choice does not meet Cornyn's definition of reality, that voter should dump their conscious and yield to Cornyn's reality. If that is the case, why don't we do away with primaries and just let Cornyn's little club just appoint our candidates for us? What a putz.

It is this "I know better than you" attitude that has turned voters in droves away from the Republican party and straight in to the arms of the Tea Party. And the Tea Party doesn't even exist.

I am trying to be a good Republican. I've been a Republican my entire adult life. But don't talk down to me. Don't tell me who to vote for. And by all means, get over any thought of taking me for granted.

That is reality.

Yield. Cornyn is now without balls. this statement has in effect handed his manhood to harry reid(closet fairy,one each) And at a time when the red banner of no quarter should be flown.

I read your comment over at Legal Insurrection. I heartily agree with you.

Merry Christmas to you and your family. You are now a must-read blog for me :)

Thank you, Lisa. I strongly believe that as Conservatives we have momentum on our side. This is no time to yield.

You go ahead and yield, Senator Cornyn, you sorry excuse for a Texan. This REAL Texan is going to fight to the death.
