Blame America First

Alicublog has a selection of wingnut pundits and bloggers blaming the voters for being cut-and-run wusses. But I think (hope) that idiot Chicago cartoonist Eric Allie takes the prize:

Basically, these wingnut pundits treat America the way the truck salesman treats Homer Simpson when trying to sell him a snowplow:
Homer: Well, I really should discuss this with my wife.
Salesman: [scoffs] Your wife? [cracks an imaginary whip]
Homer: What, you think I'm going to buy a $20,000 truck just because you make that noise?
Salesman: [does it again] [and again] [and again]
Homer: [on his knees] I'll take it!
Unfortunately, it works most of the time, which is why even most of the Democrats tend (or try) to use tough-guy talk. Even hint to Americans that they might be called a wimp and they are putty in your hands.
