I see the A Lunatic and the goat girl are reunited again. Goat girl must of just got out of rehab. Didn't help though. Still baaaaa like the goat girl it is. lol
Great day in the news. I see one repuke posted ole turtle man being outted for the scumbag that he is:
McConnell aides secretly taped ripping Ashley Judd
You may have also "noticed" President Obama WON reelection by a wider margin than 2008, despite all Republican efforts to make voting more DIFFICULT. I don't recall anyone being "bullied" to stand in four, six and eight-hour lines to vote for President Obama. But tens of millions of voters DID.
Teabaggers, the buttcrack of America...(LOVE this one)
Mitch McConnell is a regular Joseph R. McCarthy. It does not surprise me that good people refused to run for office. The tactics corrupt politicians use to slander someones name is inconceivable.
Of course, we all know the FBI has nothing BETTER to do of national importance than chase down one of a group of petty Republican staffers bad-mouthing a non-candidate, who made a tape of their trashy behavior and leaked it to the Press.
Republicans calling labeling actions as 'Nixonian' is the pot calling the kettle black.
A few of the great comments on this site. Nothing more than the repukes/teabaggers eating their own. It was his aide and yet he will blame the Dems. In the end, you will see how the repukes work behind close doors like with randpaul.

GOP Cruzin' to a bruisin' with gun background check filibuster
If Senate Republicans succeed in their filibuster against gun background checks which are supported by 90 percent of voters and would prevent those on terror watch lists from getting guns to mass murder our children it will be one more dagger in the heart of the discredited Republican brand that may well bring a rule change in the Senate that is long overdue.
The great curse of Republican politics, and the great reason that Democrats have won so many national elections in the last decade, is that GOP politics is now an arms race among extremists who drive each other and drive the GOP further outside mainstream America.
Consider the case of Sens. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) and Rand Paul (R-Ky.), who compete to lead the extremist wing of Republicans, with each one trying to outdo the other to prove who is more out of touch with America. And Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) increasingly looks like a hostage to this GOP arms race toward political extremism.
Regarding the filibuster against background checks, Sen. John McCain (R), the Arizona war hero who publicly reprimanded Cruz for his McCarthyite attack against war hero Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel, is right. A filibuster against background checks is senseless and stupid from the party that is increasingly referred to (by some Republicans as well as analysts) as "the party of stupid."
Filibustering a proposal with 90 percent support is, ladies and gentlemen, the classic definition of stupid. Cruz comes out of a Texas GOP culture led by the man called "governor-for-life" Rick Perry, whose electoral career will end, in Texas and presidential politics, the minute his current term as governor ends.
As least Perry does not slander war heroes as Cruz does and is not publicly reprimanded by war heroes as Cruz was. What Perry does do is wage war against Texas healthcare, when he isn't waging war against Texas education, when he isn't waging war against Texas women, when he isn't incoherent in presidential debates and reduced to saying "oops."
Perry will not be reelected governor of Texas and will not be elected president. When his current term ends, Perry will find some well-paying sinecure in the assisted-living home for unelectable former politicians who cannot stop cashing in. And whether he does not run again or is defeated for reelection, he will have moved the Texas GOP so far to the right that the question is not whether but when Texas goes blue.
As for Cruz, he cannot control his need for attention or his drive to be leader of the GOP "stupid party" faction. And Paul too cannot relinquish the title of leader of the "stupid party" faction, so the more extreme Cruz becomes, the more extreme Paul becomes.
Cruz and Paul increasingly resemble two tango dancers, like Al Pacino and Gabrielle Anwar in "Scent of a Woman." As for McConnell, a secretly sensible man, he is trapped in the inferno of low popularity ratings in Kentucky. He is not sure if he should be more worried about being defeated in a primary by a candidate of the "stupid party" faction or in a general election by the moderate and appealing Democratic foe he will probably face.
If it were possible to create a tango dance ménage a trois, McConnell is trying to be the third dance partner with Cruz and Paul, and the whole ménage is dancing so far to the right that they are reduced to filibustering a proposal that would help prevent terrorists from getting guns.

my head is not in my ass,
i listen to the news.
i think, therefore I am...right
#93031 Apr 9, 2013
I doubt this filibuster will succeed, but if it does, watch for the Senate to change the filibuster rules. The new rule would simply require that filibustering GOP senators hold the floor to tell the nation, live and in real time on national television, why 90 percent of America is wrong and why they would help terrorists get guns to mass murder America's children.
That, my friends, is called Cruzin' to a bruisin'.

Deep in the Red of Texas, Republicans Fight the Blues
AUSTIN, TexasSoon after Texas Republicans notched another round of lopsided wins last November, the state GOP sent notice to its local chapters: Please stop holding party meetings in country clubs.
Other advice followed. Please consider hosting Republican recruiting tables at naturalization ceremonies. Word spread among state GOP lawmakers to back off on bills targeting illegal immigrants in the legislative session.
But Republicans here are suddenly looking over their shoulder, worried that demographic shifts and a big push by Democrats to capitalize could soon turn the state into the ultimate battleground between the two parties. One of the most important backroom players in President Obama's 2012 campaign has launched a broad effort to pull the state into the Democratic column.
Perry 'indeed' open to 2016 bid
Perry made a bid for the 2012 GOP nomination, but his candidacy was derailed after he couldn't remember a key portion of his platform; namely, which federal agencies he would eliminate if elected president.

GOP off to a bad start for 2016
Washington (CNN)-- Democrats acting like Republicans. Republicans acting like Democrats. The 2016 presidential contest is shaping up to be the political equivalent of gender-bending.
Democrats are coalescing early around a front-runner who certainly will be lavishly funded, Hillary Clinton. She's campaigning on the familiar GOP platform: "Next in line."
Meanwhile, a twice-beaten Republican Party finds itself doing as Democrats often did in the Reagan era, surveying a field of little-knowns and hoping for magic. The Republican field is led by two freshman senators: Rand Paul of Kentucky and Marco Rubio of Florida, plus a member of the House and the party's 2012 vice presidential nominee, Paul Ryan.
Three things are immediately striking about the top of the Republican field:
1) It's not only Washington-based, but it's all congressionally based. There is no governor in the top three, no general, no former Cabinet secretary, nobody with any notable private-sector accomplishment.
2) It's light on accomplishment. Ryan has to date been the most productive of the top three, but none of his famous budgets have been passed into law. Paul can cite no legislative accomplishments at all, only a stunt filibuster against the entirely imaginary menace of drone strikes against American citizens on American soil. Rubio has taken a lead role in immigration reform but must make some tough decisions about whether his future is best secured by negotiating a deal or scuttling one. None of the three Republican front-runners has any administrative experience to speak of.
3) It's intensely doctrinaire. Ryan was the author of much of the Republican Party's post-2009 tea party program. Rubio has to date shown himself an undeviating follower of that program. Paul dissents from some aspects of that program but in the direction of even greater extremism.
Rubio: No special pathway to citizenship
A party rebuilding from back-to-back presidential defeats has to face the possibility that the problem may be bigger than its candidate, bigger than its campaign tactics. There are a couple of obvious ways to address that possibility:
The party might look for an outsider nominee, a candidate so attractive in his or her own right as to offset the party's own unpopularity. This is what Republicans did by nominating Dwight Eisenhower in 1952 after five consecutive defeats by New Deal Democrats.
Or the party might allow an insider some latitude to edge back toward the political center. This is what Democrats did in 1992 when they nominated a pro-death penalty, pro-welfare reform, pro-free trade governor of Arkansas after losses under the party-line liberals, Walter Mondale and Michael Dukakis.
#93035 Apr 9, 2013
In 2016, however, Republicans as yet show no inclination to try either remedy. No independent superstar; no deviation from party line orthodoxy. The one Republican with the highest cross-partisan appeal, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, has been consigned to fourth place.
As the saying goes, the first step toward recovery is to acknowledge the problem.
The problem in 2012 -- as in 2008, as in the near-death experience of 2004, as in the popular vote loss of 2000, as in the loss of 1996, as in the loss of 1992 -- was the GOP's failure to offer an economic program relevant to the problems of middle-class Americans. The party's present three front-runners would not only repeat that failure, but double down on that failure.
The Republican Party desperately needs renewal, its early presidential front-runners are characterized by their rejection of change.
At a time when voters reject generic Republicanism, Republicans themselves are rallying to two of the most generic Republicans in the party -- and a third, Paul, who diverges from generic Republicanism only by offering voters even more of what they most dislike about today's GOP.
The party talks about learning from its mistakes. Thus far, the main thing the party seems to have learned from those mistakes is how to repeat them.
It just gets better and better. They will finish the job the teabaggers started. Making them HISTORY.

Ben Carson and the wealthy conservative victim class
When I heard Dr. Ben Carson, the latest rightist flavor of the minute (rightist flavors come and go in minutes these days) whine about the supposedly evil, vicious, white, liberal racists who are picking on poor Dr. Carson, I immediately thought that with Leno and Fallon competing to host NBC's "The Tonight Show," perhaps Carson was throwing his beret into the ring.
He sounded like millionaire crony capitalist Newt Gingrich, millionaire former Fox News personality Sarah Palin, millionaire pizza magnate and would-be president Herman Cain, and other wealthy conservatives who enjoy playing the role of victims.
When a politician goes to a National Prayer Breakfast and misuses the occasion to make nasty, insulting comments toward a sitting president there to join in prayer and worship, that politician (in this case Carson) should have been taught long ago to have more respect for moments of prayer and worship.
Where I come from, he would simply be compared to the eastern end of a horse headed west with behavior such as this, a description that has everything do to with his misbehavior at a prayer breakfast and nothing to do with his race, gender or myopic opinions.
When Carson behaves this way, he has earned a spanking for his misbehavior and not a standing ovation from the partisans and ideologues of the right. Have they learned anything while enjoying two terms of President Barack Obama, while facing a high prospect they will next enjoy two terms of President Hillary Clinton?
I doubt that Carson will be anointed the new Republican "savior" (though the previous GOP savior is having a tough time these days).
I hope that in the end Carson does give his commencement speech at Johns Hopkins University, whose management so unwisely selected him to headline and whose students are now spanking Carson with protests after his latest insults to gays, which he more or less apologized for, presumably until his next insult to gays or the president or some other group.
This matter has nothing to do with Carson's silly charge that he is a victim of evil, white, vicious, liberal racism. This is more parody than politics.
The larger issue is how Carson, Palin, Cain and Gingrich are among the wealthy elites of the Republican right who refuse (listen to this carefully, conservatives) to take responsibility for their actions. Some on the right talk a good game about personal responsibility, but when they transgress or fail because of their own shortcomings, they whine and moan and blame others for their failures.
Leno and Fallon have nothing to worry about from the gentleman from Johns Hopkins.

Racist Rush Limbaugh Quotes
1. "I mean, let's face it, we didn't have slavery in this country for over 100 years because it was a bad thing. Quite the opposite: slavery built the South. I'm not saying we should bring it back; I'm just saying it had its merits. For one thing, the streets were safer after dark."
2. "You know who deserves a posthumous Medal of Honor? James Earl Ray [the confessed assassin of Martin Luther King]. We miss you, James. Godspeed."
3. "Have you ever noticed how all composite pictures of wanted criminals resemble Jesse Jackson?"
4. "Right. So you go into Darfur and you go into South Africa, you get rid of the white government there. You put sanctions on them. You stand behind Nelson
Mandela who was bankrolled by communists for a time, had the support of certain communist leaders. You go to Ethiopia. You do the same thing."
5. "Look, let me put it to you this way: the NFL all too often looks like a game between the Bloods and the Crips without any weapons. There, I said it."
6. "The NAACP should have riot rehearsal. They should get a liquor store and practice robberies."
7. "They're 12 percent of the population. Who the hell cares?"
8. "Take that bone out of your nose and call me back (to an African American female caller)."
9. "I think the media has been very desirous that a black quarterback do well. Theyre interested in black coaches and black quarterbacks doing well. I think theres a little hope invested in McNabb and he got a lot of credit for the performance of his team that he really didnt deserve."

This president, I think, has exposed himself over and over again as a guy who has a deep-seated hatred for white people or the white culture Im not saying he doesnt like white people, Im saying he has a problem. This guy is, I believe, a racist.
They put [the Three-Fifths Clause] in there because if slaves in the South were counted as full human beings, they could never abolish slavery.

Glenn Becks website, segments listing rejected NCAA team names, which include the Los Angeles Limp-Wrists, the New Jersey Jumpin Jews, and the Atlanta Murdering Rampage of Savage Rapin Injuns.
The content that really takes the cake on Becks website is a satirical (but no less offensive) parody song about the New KKK. The song contains lyrics discussing the close-to-painful murdering of the dark people.
In March of 2006, Beck characterized Mexico as a country that has been overtaken by lawbreakers from the bottom to the top. He criticized supporters attending immigration rights rallies, saying that what [theyre] protesting for is to have lawbreakers come here. When asked to clarify these remarks, Beck said he pretty much stand[s] by his previous statements that Mexico is run by nothing but criminals on his radio show the next day.
Beck listed the only three reasons a Mexican would come to the United States on his CNN show:One, theyre terrorists; two, theyre escaping the law; or three, theyre hungry. They cant make a living in their own dirtbag country.
It took me about a year to start hating the 9/11 victims families Im so sick of them because theyre always complaining We did our best for them But the second thought I had when I saw these people and they had to shut down the Astrodome and lock it down [because of rioting while supplies were being distributed], I thought: I didnt think I could hate victims faster than the 9-11 victims. He continues to say,This is a 90,000-square-mile disaster site, New Orleans is 181 square miles And thats all were hearing about, are the people in New Orleans. Those are the only ones were seeing on television are the scumbags Its just a small percentage of those who were left in New Orleans, or who decided to stay in New Orleans, and theyre getting all the attention.
