Blather, Reince, Repeat: RNC now using World War II veterans as political props. Has to be seen to be believed.
I want to shoot [Hillary Clinton] right in the vagina and I don’t want her to die right away.
Everhart, who may or may not have just been Clockwork Orange’d and forced to sit through multiple horrific screenings of I Now Pronounce You Chuck & Larry on an endless loop, thinks marriage equality is just an insurance scam:
“You may be as straight as an arrow, and you may have a friend that is as straight as an arrow,” Everhart told the Marietta Daily Journal. “Say you had a great job with the government where you had this wonderful health plan. I mean, what would prohibit you from saying that you’re gay, and y’all get married and still live as separate, but you get all the benefits? I just see so much abuse in this it’s unreal.” Everhart added: “There is no way that this is about equality. To me, it’s all about a free ride.”
Weapons designed for the theater of war have no place in a movie theater. A majority of Americans agree with us on this. And by the way, so did Ronald Reagan, one of the staunchest defenders of the Second Amendment, who wrote to Congress in 1994 urging them — this is Ronald Reagan speaking — urging them to listen to the American public and to the law enforcement community and support a ban on the further manufacture of military-style assault weapons.
And in Missouri, Todd Akin … was asked by a local news source about rape and he said, ‘Look, in a legitimate rape situation’ — and what he meant by legitimate rape was just look, someone can say I was raped: a scared-to-death 15-year-old that becomes impregnated by her boyfriend and then has to tell her parents, that’s pretty tough and might on some occasion say, ‘Hey, I was raped.’ That’s what he meant when he said legitimate rape versus non-legitimate rape. I don’t find anything so horrible about that. But then he went on and said that in a situation of rape, of a legitimate rape, a woman’s body has a way of shutting down so the pregnancy would not occur. He’s partly right on that.
So if the Republicans are for the rich and the Democrats are for the middle class, who is fighting for the ever-growing poorer class? Whose tent is growing as more people fall down the ladder from middle class to poor?
Thirty-one days for Andrew victims. Seventeen days for victims of Gustav and Ike. Ten days for victims of Katrina. For the victims of Sandy in New Jersey, New York and Connecticut, there’s been sixty-six days and the wait continues. There’s only one group to blame for the continued suffering of these innocent victims: the House Majority and their speaker, John Boehner. Last night, politics was placed before our oath to serve our citizens. For me, it was disappointing and disgusting to watch.
Today, we’re learning that House Republicans will likely reject the Senate’s fiscal cliff patch, a legislative compromise that passed the U.S. Senate 89-8. Speaker Boehner said the Senate must act; it did. Now there’s no excuse. The House GOP is dominated by severe conservatives who believe that any and all tax increases are bad. But where are the moderate Republicans right now? I don’t understand what’s stopping moderate Republicans from assembling 20 or so of their colleagues, crossing the aisle and cutting their own deal? It happens in state legislatures every day. My message to those moderate Republicans in the House of Representatives is simple: Stand up! Right now. The wingnuts are ruining your party and ruining our nation. Cross the aisle, talk to Nancy Pelosi, make a deal.
"This level of violence must be stopped. Sarah and Jim Brady are working hard to do that, and I say more power to them. If the passage of the Brady bill were to result in a reduction of only 10 or 15 percent of those numbers (and it could be a good deal greater), it would be well worth making it the law of the land."
GOP idol Ronald Reagan, gun control advocate. Listen to them man. Must-read stuff on this here: http://hypr.vc/16u1qa
Powerful conservative Jim DeMint is resigning from the Senate. He’s headed to the equally conservative Heritage Foundation. What happens next?
There’s about to be a political circus in South Carolina, the state that entered “hiking the Appalachian trail” into the lexicon, the state proudly represented by a Good Ol’ Boy wannabe who yelled “You lie!‘ at President Obama in a joint session of Congress because he was opposed to expanding health-care coverage for more Americans, the state in which the Senate President posed at a party in Rebel garb with a pair of African-American slaves, and the state where horse-bonking seems to be the sport of choice.
Chris Poole, a.k.a. moot — founder of the infamous web forum some affectionately call the a**hole of the internet — seems like an odd fit to represent one of Rick Santorum’s “Patriot Voices.”
If there’s one connection between the internet icon and the one-time Republican presidential candidate, it’s that their followers probably say the word “f*ggot” more than anyone else in the world.
