Larry Kudlow of CNBC fame has lost it.
http://www.realclearpolitics.com/articles/2009/04/30/100-day_lurch_to_the_left_96260.html

Excerpt:

Will Republicans take advantage of the wide opening created by Obama's 100-day lurch to the left? So far the GOP has produced only fragmented policy alternatives and no central spokesperson. That's not unusual for the party out of power. But the Specter defection underscores the GOP's sagging fortunes.

Right now, the most promising Republican leader -- at least in a policy sense -- is former Vice President Dick Cheney. His attack against the release of the CIA interrogation memos and his forceful call for the release of the information gathered during those interrogations -- facts that helped keep America safe after 9/11 -- clearly rattled Team Obama. Mr. Cheney should now launch a counterattack on Obama's tax-and-spend New Deal/Great Society enlargement of government power.

It would make for delicious irony, but Dick Cheney may be most effective spokesperson the GOP has.

5. The GOP is in deep trouble.
Only the "true believers" in the free market myth are left.

4. Speaking as a peripheral member of Team Obama
all I can say is please do continue to trot out ol' Crashcart at every opportunity.

That walking cyborg with a pig heart is less popular than Stalin and Pol Pot in this country and I'd love to see him continue his brilliant leadership of the party of NO!

6. The Dick Cheney who is now in hiding
because his insistence that the torture memos should be released because has bitten him on the butt? Why not? By the way, the only people complaining about "Obama's lurch to the left" ARE the Republicans!

:crazy:

9. It's such a gift to be a Democrat and
deal in reality. It must be so weakening on the soul to have to lie, cheat, and come up with wedgies, relentlessly.

13. I'm constantly amazed has how completely lost the Right actually is.
They are so out of touch with reality I can't even put it into words.

I guess I should just thank them, because they're doing more to guarantee democratic wins in 2010 and 2012 than some Democrats are.

14. Maybe Kudlow will bring out the Laffer Curve again to prove his point.
After he fried his brain in the eighties and nineties his thought process seems more than a little denigrated.

Why anyone would ever listen to this fool is beyond me entirely. His only claim to fame is to be consistently wrong on just about everything that matters.

16. Kudlow sees things through a haze of cocaine dust.
He has no credibility on anything whatsoever. Delusional and pathetic.
