Aping Rush Limbaugh's 'Operation Chaos,' Daily Kos Announces 'Operation Hilarity' to Vote for Santorum By Tim Graham Created 02/16/2012 - 8:30am

Please revisit all the liberals who called Rush Limbaugh's "Operation Chaos" effort urging conservatives to vote for Hillary Clinton "undemocratic" and worse. Because Daily Kos blog boss Markos Moulitsas announced on Wednesday "Operation Hilarity," urging liberals to turn out and vote for Rick Santorum to "keep the GOP clown show going!"

"Rush Limbaugh and his ilk have had no problem meddling in our own contests. And if there's one thing Daily Kos is about, it's about fighting fire with fire," he wrote. "And in any case, it's freaking hilarious. I mean, Rick Santorum? Really? The Republicans have offered up this big, slow, juicy softball. Let's have fun whacking the heck out of it." They're even raising funds for Facebook ads. He writes:

It's time for us to take an active role in the GOP nomination process. That's right, it's time for those of us who live in open primary and caucus states—Michigan, North Dakota, Vermont and Tennessee in the next three weeks—to head out and cast a vote for Rick Santorum.

Why would we do such a crazy thing? Lots of great reasons!

Republican turnout has sucked, and appears to be getting worse by the contest. Unlike the 2008 Democratic primaries, which helped President Barack Obama and the Democrats to build a national organization, the GOP is an organizational disaster, with waning voter interest. That means that it takes fewer votes to have an impact than if Republican turnout was maxed out.

Several of the contests have produced razor-thin margins of victory. Rick Santorum won Iowa by 34 votes, Mitt Romney "won" Maine by 194 votes. It won't take many of us to swing contests the way we want them to swing.

The longer this GOP primary drags on, the better the numbers for Team Blue. Not only is President Barack Obama rising in comparison to the clowns in the GOP field, but GOP intensity is down—which would have repercussions all the way down the ballot.

The longer this thing drags out, the more unpopular the Republican presidential pretenders become. Just look at Mitt Romney's trajectory, which followed Herman Cain's trajectory, and Newt Gingrich's trajectory, and Michelle Bachmann's trajectory, and so on.

Rick Santorum will inevitably follow the same path once he gets properly vetted. Mitt Romney has been unable to stem the bleeding despite his tens of millions. Just imagine Santorum, with the far more radical record and a continued inability to raise real money.

It's a no-brainer! The following states have completely open contests coming up: 2/28: Michigan (Primary) 3/6: North Dakota (caucus) 3/6: Tennessee (primary) 3/6: Vermont (primary)

If you live in one of those states, pledge to participate in Operation Hilarity by voting or caucusing for Rick Santorum.

In case anyone was in doubt that the Kosmonauts hate Rick Santorum from their toes up to their silly hats, see Jesse LaGreca, who wrote "spare me your self-righteous indignation, you mouth breathing, knuckle dragging troglodyte stereotype of a sexually suppressed Broadway villain from the 1950's."

And: "To the sexually repressed adults who want to make believe it is 1955 and that a voting booth is a Delorean with a flux capacitor, I'd like to remind you of the movie Back To The Future. Just like the movie, eventually you are going to be forced to realize it is 2012, but you are still the repressed, conspiracy theory driven John Birch Republicans of 1955, and you're gonna be mad as hell when you figure out that just like in the movie, at the end Biff is just a chump and the black guy who used to mop the floor at the diner who Buff used to look down on is going to end up running the town and there is nothing you can do, Rick Santorum, to stop it."

Agreed. Santorum has been my guy once the establishment hacks got rid of Cain.

This situation does make me even more in favor of party registration and closed primaries. The Virginia General Assembly killed the bill to do just that. Idiots.

I’m sick of the other side choosing our candidates.

I guess when you live in your Mom's basement, are a full time student working toward a Master's in "Women and Ethnic Studies", are collecting student aid, food stamps and welfare, you can afford to take the political future of America as a joke.

Hey, a vote is a vote. Go out and vote for him. Santorum will take it.

Remember this, though, Operation Chaos was ultimately a failure. It kept the process going a bit longer, but in the end, Obama still ended up winning the nomination and Presidency. Those who don’t learn from history...

On the contrary.

As it stands, 0bama doesn’t know who to turn his billion dollar guns on, and neither does the media.

The candidates need to step up REAL QUICK and nip this new “republicans will outlaw contraception” move by the ‘rats right in the bud.

They need to ask who has proposed outlawing contraception,
and then address the fallacy, in very derogatory and ridiculing tones, that if the government doesn’t pay for it, it’s “banning” it.

Romney will be the weakest opponent vs Obama.

So, if this will get someone besides Romney the nomination, go for it.

After all, if it’s fair for the GOP establishment to attempt to swing the nomination to Romney (moving up the primaries, calling the wrong winner in Iowa, not counting all the votes in Maine, etc...) why is it any worse for liberals—who have a legal right to vote in the primaries (at least they aren’t committing vote fraud)—to try and swing the nomination to someone else?

For even the most brain dead, of the Santorum supporters, it is quite obvious that the Left does not only hope Santorum is the GOP nominee, they are doing all they can to make it happen.

The same thing happened with the 1980 election. The left was praying for Reagan, and did everything to make it happen.

Actually the same thing happened in reverse in the 1976 election. The right was laughing at the idea of the Democrats nominating a hick peanut farmer from rural Georgia who not only openly talked about his religion, but claimed to be a born again Christian and felt bad about "lusting in his heart after other women." The pre-election portrayal of Jimmy Carter is very, very different from the left-wing liberal one you know today. Carter was considered a baptist religious extremest--at least that is how he was portrayed by the press.

Santorum's campaign looks a lot like Jimmy Carters. Spent a year going door to door in Iowa and came out of nowhere. Relying heavily on religious conservatives, and is unafraid to talk about religion on the stump (you might even say both went out of their way to do it).

It was an effective strategy for Carter, there is no reason it won't also be effective for Santorum. People point out that the majority of the country isn't overly religious, which is true. But, what the forget that the vast majority of the country are not atheist either. Being a religious person is not a negative with most of the country--in fact, I would argue it's a positive.

It is a fine line though. Carter managed to walk it in 1976. There's no reason to think Santorum can't walk it in 2012.

They voted for Obama. At that point, everyone thought that Hillary would be the nominee.

It’s a known fact that Obama’s surprise win of the ‘08 Iowa caucus was caused in part by republicans who showed up to vote for him as part of operation chaos.

Open primaries are insane. It allows the other side to try to choose the weaker candidates so they will lose against their candidate. Santorum doesn’t stand a chance, he never did and never will. Newt is the only one strong enough to go up against the Marxists in the WH and the only one afraid to call them what they are. The only one better is Sarah and
she’s not running.

The author is correct about one thing...
‘Republican turnout has sucked, and appears to be getting worse by the contest,’...

...but turnout was up in South Carolina where voters were excited to show up and vote for a conservative man with big ideas and a great ability to defend and promote them, Newt Gingrich. Then Romney's knives came out and cut Newt down, leaving us, hopefully temporarily, with two candidates who are just very difficult to get excited about. Let's hope Newt can rise again and give the electorate someone they fell is worth showing up to vote for.

Yes, they are. A few more Santorum wins could kill off Romney which is just what we are hoping for. Liberals think a man of upstanding faith and family values will be easy to defeat. I believe he will be the hardest to defeat. God raises up the meek to make the proud look foolish and it just might be that this is one more way to push Santorum's candidacy across the finish line. Then it comes down to "who do you trust to fix our economy and protect our freedoms - Santorum or the guy who has been an abject failure the past four years? The hateful Left will always be opposed to the moral man because they are inwardly shamed by him. So they will lash out with all manner of vile crudeness. But God sees and He controls. And the Kosmonauts are playing right into His hands.

Not true, at least officially. Republicans had their own contests to worry about in Iowa. Rush's announcement of Operation Chaos didn't happen until just before primaries in states like Pennsylvania and Texas after McCain had blitzed through South Carolina and Florida to appear to sew up the GOP nomination.

IIRC, Hillary won Iowa and a few early states but not by the dominant margins she was expected to and Obama's campaign didn't really take off until later when Ted Kennedy endorsed Obama, putting the whole weight of the Kennedy wing of the party up against the Clinton wing of the party.

180 degrees out of phase there.

People showed up to vote for HILLARY as part of “Operation Chaos”.

Rush encouraged people to vote for HILLARY, not 0bama.

For those of you in Rio Linda - Operation Chaos sought to extend the Democrat primary after it looked like 0bama was going to walk away with it- by encouraging Republicans in open primary States to vote for HILLARY.

So far nobody has yet proffered a reasonable scenario whereby this would have made the nomination of 0bama more likely.

That describes Jimmy Carter way back when and describes Romney, Sarah, both Presidents Bush and even President Kennedy, until after he died and we found out about all his dalliencies.

It seems the press use to not report on the affairs of our leaders.

I remember Gary Hart denying having an affair after a reporter asked him. He said, "If you don't believe me, follow me. I am faithful to my wife."

They followed him and even got pictures. Ruined his chances. He was forced to drop out.
