Anybody Seen Craig?

So, I’m wondering if anyone has heard from Craig Robinson today. If not, I’m a little concerned that Steve Deace and Kent Sorensen took him out behind the WHO “Hy-Vee” studios last night for a beat down for having the audacity to disagree with them on tactics. Anyone in the area might want to check the dumpsters for missing, injured political commentators.

Just because someone disagrees with you on the path that should be taken to guarantee traditional marriage will be upheld and the power of the courts will be limited doesn’t make you an enemy. It also doesn’t mean that you’re in the bag for Terry Branstad. It just means you have a different plan.

I also find it a little obnoxious that, during the brawl known as the 5pm hour of Deace in the Afternoon on Mondays, Deace claimed to have never heard of Robinson’s plan to reign in judicial activism via a constitutional convention.

I’ve heard Robinson talk about it on Deace’s show on more than one occasion. He’s written about it in depth and mentioned it on several occasions. This should be no surprise to anyone.

Here’s what I don’t understand. Conservatives get pissed off when people don’t follow the rules. The court is not following the rules, which is why we are pissed at them. Yet, despite having a clear path for limiting judicial power which is within the boundaries of “the rules” (i.e. the constitutional convention), some people are hell bent on going rogue and doing the executive order for which there is no precedent and no clear legitimacy.

Of course, I’m sure I will now be accused of being in the bag for Terry Branstad.

Oh wait, that can’t be right, those people can’t stand me.

Maybe I’m in the bag for Chris Rants. Um, probably not. He doesn’t really like me either.

I guess I haven’t pissed off Rod Roberts yet, but I’m sure I will in due time. I have that effect on people.

Oh, and apparently, according to some, I have defended the NRA on my little portion of this website only because the NRA happens to be a sponsor of this site. It couldn’t be because I heard some blowhards trying to convince people that the NRA and Clel Baudler are “anti-second amendment” and needed to be called out for being coo coo for coco puffs. And yes, I’ll be eagerly checking my inbox for the inevitable rambling diatribe from Mr. and Mrs. “the NRA is anti-gun” Coco Puff… you know who you are.

And I’m sure that I’m not pure enough on the issue of gay marriage either, despite the fact that I seem to write about it every other day.

I wish people could humbly take legitimate criticism for what it is rather than make people who should be their allies into the bad guys.
