That’s Right Nate

Republican Strategy Showing Big Gains

with 17 comments

As regular readers of my blog know, I am a huge collector of Precious Moments figurines.  The ones that I truly appreciate are the rare limited edition ones.  This week, I immediately bought 6 copies of Our Love is the Bridge to Happiness.  Normally, I would only buy one for the empty spot on top of my mantle, but this particular figurine is a limited edition.  Because it is rare it is seen as a status symbol.   That’s why whenever I am flirting with a woman I never fail to mention to her about all the rare precious moment figurines I have.   Hopefully, this will one day lead to an opportunity to show that woman the figurines for herself.

Just like Precious Moments, The Republican Party has made a move in the right direction by becoming rarer itself.  We have now become an elite party.  When there were all sorts of moderates running around like Arlen Specter or Gerald Ford anybody could be a Republican.   Now, it takes strict adherence to very rigid principles that most people in public office could never do–either their empathy or their intellect would get in the way.  That is why even though we are leaner, we are now more powerful than ever.  Everybody now knows, if you’re a Republican you are elite.

Soon, people will reallize what an elite brand we are and when that happens we will be in great demand like any limited supply.  This will help us in elections because while not everybody can own a Ferrari, that won’t stop ordinary people from wanting to.   Voting Republican will be a new status symbol.  As an added bonus, we have a very unified message.   When we were larger, nearly half the party thought Bush was taking the country in the wrong direction.  Now that that half of the party is gone, I’d wager that all the remaining Republicans approve of the job Bush did or see him as too liberal.  It is much easier to stay unified and on message with a smaller group.   The moderate purge must continue until we become even more elite.  Only then can we really lead.

  1. The Republican Party is getting very elite.. and it has gotten more so in just this last week…already in the last poll it has dropped another percentage point.

    It is sad, we need the 2 party system.. and they are putting themselves out of business.

  2. Putting themselves out of business? Hardly. We’re just being more selective in who we allow to vote for us.

  3. I’m with Nate. Who wants to be the party of the “commoners”? Once people are convinced that these commoners are just holding them back, they will aspire to be associated with the “elite”. It won’t be long before they are begging to be trickled on by the neo/retro tax policies of the New Republican Party!

  4. I know you must have this one – “It is in the giving that we receive”: http://www.preciousmoments.com/content.cfm/product/It-Is-In-The-Giving-That-We-Receive

    So touching, truly. It’s sure to be a big hit with the ladies, Nate. Though some cute cow decor would also go over well – do you have any cows?

  5. I do not have any cows, but I definitely appreciate the tip. I do have most of the Christmas statuettes.

  7. Oh most assuredly. We’ve been doing all the work. Let’s see how people like running a Democracy without us.

  8. Hmm, that’s right in line with historical truth about powerful parties that led their countries to glorious futures. As I recall, the National Socialist Party in Germany ca. 1939 was actually a small percentage of the populace in terms of membership. The Russian Communist party never had a huge membership, did it? And consider all that they accomplished. I do believe the Republican Party is headed in the same direction as these two sterling examples of great leadership!

    Oh, I don’t know what I love more about this blog! The posts, Nate’s personality, charm and manhood (though my campaign against the mustache continues), or the comments.

  10. I definitely would think my charm and manhood must be near the top.

    i think if we all write the hummel company, we could make this happen: a special edition nate hummel figurine – that would be so totally awesome!!

  15. Precious Moments compared to the Republican party…now that is a new one to me. Interesting view. Enjoy the Our Love Is The Bridge To Happiness figurine.

  16. Thank you PM Tushin. I have got one of the Bridge figurines right above my mantle looking down on me as I watch television. I want to thank your company for many wonderful years of enriching our lives with porcelain. I hope someday that Sam Butcher will take his rightful place with the geniuses of American art.

  17. […] Party around we need to get more elite. Our brand has to be like the Navy Seals or limited edition Precious Moments figurines. By cutting the number of Republicans way down, we can create a demand for us that will only serve […]
