David Brooks Gets it;Palin Led Team (Cruz et al) Not Interested In Perks"

The Daily Caller LINK reproduces this excerpt from Video below of conservative establishment guru David Brooks:

“What’s going on in the House, and a bit in the Senate, too, is what you might call the rise of Ted Cruz-ism,” Brooks said. “And Ted Cruz, the senator from Canada through Texas, is basically not a legislator in the normal sense, doesn’t have an idea that he’s going to Congress to create coalitions, make alliances, and he is going to pass a lot of legislation. He’s going in more as a media-protest person. And a lot of the House Republicans are in the same mode. They’re not normal members of Congress. They’re not legislators. They want to stop things. And so they’re just being — they just want to obstruct.”

Brooks hypothesized the reason the leadership in the House and Senate is unable to control the so-called Ted Cruz-ism movement is that members of it have become uninterested in any of the perks that the leadership has to offer.

Exactly so-the GOPe finally gets it. the Tea party movement, Sarah Palin and the legislators her endorsement has brought into congress don't want a bar of the traditional perks and pork. And yes, they will take on the Republican party as well as the Democrats in pursuit of a conservative revolution.

This realization is why the Republican Establishment has joined with the "progressives" and the liberal media in their now frenzied attack on Senator Cruz as well as their ongoing 5 year attack on Governor Palin. They recognize the existential threat to up till now total control of the levers of power and money. What they don't know is how to hold of the new forces that are not interested in power for powers sake, for the baubles of office and for compromising and alliances with forces opposed to the best interest of the people both the liberals and GOP Establishment disdain-the ordinary folks , the bitter clingers, who live in flyover country.

It is a battle to the death and the Establishment will kick out in a frenzy and ally with the left in their death throes. Vigilance and the strongest support of the Palin-ite forces is needed at this crucial juncture.
