I thought when March 6th passed we would be done with the relentless robocalls. Romney has become Public Enemy Number One around here for disrupting breakfast, lunch, dinner, and American Idol with his nasty calls. Unfortunately, someone else has picked up where his attacks left off – The Women of the 99%. Of course, we all know 99% is code for “liberals who want stuff for free” and these women are backing Sandra Fluke, who went to Congress to beg for free birth control for her 1%’er friends at Columbia Law School.
“Hello, this is a message from Women of the 99%. Congressman Jim Renacci is condoning the war on women led by Rush Limbaugh, who has become the de facto leader of the Republican party. Call Congressman Renacci at 330-xxx-xxxx and ask him why he remains silent while Republican spokesman Rush Limbaugh insults, degrades, and verbally abuses women. Tell Congressman Renacci that it’s just plain shameful that he that he allows Rush Limbaugh’s behavior to continue. We are the Women of the 99% and we won’t be silent anymore. “
Apparently, unless you are throwing a public temper tantrum about Rush’s inappropriate and malicious comments, you are “condoning” them. By this standard, 99% of the country is guilty.
Renacci wasn’t the only member of Congress who was targeted with these calls. Michigan Congressman Dan Benishek was also targeted and I suspect others were as well. We should all feel great compassion for the poor souls who had to answer the phones and listen to the angry rants that resulted from these robocalls.
The angry woman on my answering machine said it is “shameful that Congressman Renacci “allows Rush Limbaugh’s behavior to continue.” Exactly what is she implying here? That she wants some sort of Congressional action to remove Rush from the airwaves? Of course, if you’re playing Alinsky Ball, that’s considered a fair hit from the team with the blue shirts.
Don’t be surprised to see some new version of the Fairness Doctrine rear its ugly head in coming days. Remember, for committed Leftists, abortion and birth control are religious sacraments, as important to them as religious liberty is to our side. They think they have the ball on the goal line and they’re going to throw all they’ve got into winning this game.

Share on Facebook 1 1 SHARES Marco Rubio’s concession speech tonight did not get full air time on CNN, but they showed the most important part. Listen to Senator Rubio humbly explain his loss: “I’m disappointed with tonight. I want you to understand, I want you to understand something. Our disappointment tonight is not on you, it’s on me.

Share on Facebook 1 1 SHARES It sure seems that way. Christie is reportedly heading home to New Jersey to re-evaluate his candidacy. He was very clearly a dog backed into a corner in the New Hampshire debate, and he attacked who he saw as the biggest threat on the way to being the “Establishment” candidate – Marco Rubio. However, the strategy did not work, | Read More »
Share on Facebook 1 1 SHARES Sadly, it appears that New Hampshire may have muddied the GOP field, rather than clarifying it. Even though Kasich and Jeb do not have obvious paths forward to the nomination, they are going to convince themselves that they do, at least through Super Tuesday – and they will probably find donors who will indulge that belief. Somewhere, Donald Trump | Read More »
Share on Facebook 1 1 SHARES The GOP Establishment is bound to be looking at New Hampshire, a state where they perform well, seeing Donald Trump coming away with a major and distant first place, and weeping to themselves that their party has gone so terribly awry. There are a couple of things I’d like to say to them, but in the interest of keeping | Read More »
