Beating Sarah Palin and The Party of No

Stephen Goldstein, writing about Florida's senate race, may have hit on an effective way to campaign against the party of no. He begins with:
Are you actually going to drink the Kool-Aid and commit social suicide in November? Seriously, are you really going to let clones of Sarah Palin and Glenn Beck kill the middle class? They claim to channel the "original intent" of our founding fathers, but they're nothing but a bunch of four-flushers, shilling for corporate fat cats — and laughing all the way to the bank.

Now that the party of Lincoln has been taken over by the tea party, Palin, Beck, and Limbaugh, their candidates vow to go to Tallahassee and Washington to destroy the Obama health reform legislation, rob the middle-class of millions of dollars the Democrats are saving them, and increase big-business profits.
Then Goldstein actually lists the ways in which Florida residents will be harmed if candidates who have vowed to repeal health care reform are elected. The list is full of pocketbook items of concern to every Floridian.

Urban Dictionary has a definition of four flusher:

1. Somebody who is obviously lying, posturing, idly boasting, who does not have the goods; one who is 'so full of shit' that it would take four flushes during the movement to clear the bowl. Originally from game of poker, c.1880, one who bluffs that they have five cards in a flush when they only hold four.


That's our Sarah, huh?

Is she playing with a full deck?
