The DNC Show: Democrats Offer Yet Another Tedious Demonstration on how to ‘Polish a Turd’
I couldn’t help it. Try as I did — as I’ve struggled to tolerate the drivel being slung about the stage from the mouths of the speakers at the Democratic National Convention without throwing something at my high-def flat-screen television — I couldn’t get the thought out of my head. I’ve seen this before. Then, on Wednesday — as I watched Bill Clinton rub | Read More »
The Amazing Devolution of the Obama ‘Up Yours’ Campaign
In my article, published Wednesday on Examiner.com, I touched on my observations of the current “embarrassing truths about the Obama campaign.” But the venomous animosity that President Barack Obama holds for those who never bought into his illusion of messianic greatness – and his seething intolerance for the growing number of former supporters who are starting to face his reality – goes much deeper than | Read More »
Occupier’s – If at First You Don’t Succeed Threaten to Bring a Gun
While the event passed with little notice or fanfare from the media, a letter to the editor was received by USA Today in response to their Feb. 9 “Editorial: ‘Occupy’ movement fading out in a whimper.” “When the “Occupy” movement was launched last year, it garnered considerable attention and enthusiasm,” the editorial began. But after noting the razing of their last existing encampments in Washington, | Read More »
My Personal Experience with the Deranged Members of the Ron Paul Cult
Hello fellow Red Staters. Although I visit you daily to read the many insightful and informative posts, it has been a while since I’ve posted anything here myself. But it isn’t because I don’t love you anymore. In fact, I cherish Red State as the very grounds upon which I gained my legs for writing political commentary and gained the courage to become a writer | Read More »
Tornadoes Devastate the South & Obama Campaigns Out West?
On Thursday, April 14th a massive storm descended upon the south. By Saturday, April 16th an army of tornadoes had ripped through Arkansas, Mississippi, Alabama, North Carolina and Virginia. In the end, forty five people were dead and entire towns lay in ruin. On Monday, April 17th, the president finally signed the disaster declaration for North Carolina to free up federal assistance to the state. | Read More »
The Amazing Idiocy of the Liberal Wisconsin Protesters and the Impressive Evidence that the GOP are Growing Cojones
You have to hand it to Scott Walker over there in Wisconsin. In spite of the mounting efforts of the protesting teachers and their Unions, and the members of other Unions… and children (being hauled there by their parents at the urging of the teachers and Unions) who are handed signs to carry, with messages (which they do not understand) and are paraded in front of as many cameras | Read More »
Schumer gives Reid $500K?
The New York Times Reports: Senator Charles E. Schumer shipped $500,000 to Nevada in recent weeks to help Harry Reid, the Senate majority leader and Mr. Schumer’s political patron and close friend, as he fights for his political life. At the same time Mr. Schumer, a New York Democrat, made out a smaller check, for $20,000, to the Democratic Party in Vermont, where the gift | Read More »
Scientists Discover “Liberal Gene” – New Drug Offers “Hope and Change”
Scientists Find ‘Liberal Gene’ Study conducted by researchers at UCSD, Harvard According to scientists at UC San Diego and Harvard University, “ideology is affected not just by social factors, but also by a dopamine receptor gene called DRD4.” That and how many friends you had during high school. The study was led by UCSD’s James Fowler and focused on 2,000 subjects from the National Longitudinal | Read More »
Obama Hits New Low – 37% – Olympic Committee Strips Lindsey Vonn of Gold Medal
Via Drudge: “SHOCK POLL: OBAMA HITS 37 APPROVAL…” The Harris Poll (conducted by Harris Interactive) reports that Barack Obama has hit (yet another) “all time low” since the incipience of his presidency… 37%… It’s perhaps not surprising that nine in ten Republicans (90%) and Conservatives (89%) give the job the president is doing negative ratings. What may be surprising is that one-third of Democrats (34%) and | Read More »
“That’s the way it’s done”?…. “Welcome to the NFL”? Excuse me Charlie but seriously, WTF…?
I have written several posts on Charlie Crist, the governor of my state who screwed the republican party who carried him to that office in an effort to become my senator… so you know how I feel about him as a politician. But, while watching the latest debate between Florida’s candidates for the US Senate, I had to laugh as I listened to the hilarious and | Read More »
I Just VOTED… then called the Supervisor of Elections to report a No-No
It felt good too… mighty dang good… except for one small thing… As we pulled into the parking lot off of Forrest Oaks Blvd., where Early Voting was taking place at the Supervisor of Elections office, I noticed an odd little thing. Now, while I do not claim I am the brightest bulb in the political light fixture I do know you are prohibited by | Read More »
Michelle Obama – Portrait of an Orthorexic
You know, I am getting tired of Michelle Obama and her various condescending Wars on Food. From humiliating her daughter by talking publicly about concerns over her weight to her misguided crusade to impose her stringent dietary restrictions and preference in body shape on others, Michelle Obama is not “borderline” but has charged boldly across the line of absolute and utter Obsession. Now she is waging her personal war on the evils of | Read More »
“Third Party Candidates” – PREDICTION accurate… the SOURCE?… not so much…
As the Tea Party began to surge upon the political landscape (and scaring the crap out of liberals), there came an “Newton’s Law of Motion-esque” prediction (predominantly from the left as a lame “warning” to those of us on the right) that if we continued our support of the Tea Party surge an “equal yet opposite reaction” would occur by a way of a phenomenon known as | Read More »
Yes, Mr. Obama: “The Empire IS Striking Back”… So glad you’ve finally noticed.
I just watched a fascinating video. I found it on Drudge Report… But apart from the intense photo of Barack Obama, what truly captured my attention was the caption beneath. It was one word… all caps… PANIC Click on the word “PANIC” and you are taken to a page where Real Clear Politics shares this little clip. Now… Let’s break down the best parts of that. | Read More »
“Senator” is to “President” as “Present” is to “Pocket Veto”
In February of 2007, (having only served his constituents in Illinois for less than two years) Senator Obama announced he would seek the 2008 Democratic nomination for President of the United States. To what has become the all to familiar chants of his name, “Obama! Obama!,” he addressed the thousands who were packed into the town square in Springfield, Illinois: “It was here, in | Read More »
Liberals and the “The (Mid-Term) Sound of Silence”
A year ago, members of Congress and their staffs were apprised of the results of a tax payer funded study conducted by Congressional Management Foundation entitled, Online Town Hall Meetings: Exploring Democracy in the 21st Century. And the glorious lesson learned by this study regarding Town Hall Meetings and Democracy in the 21st Century? The best way to increase your approval ratings and remain in office during | Read More »
Liberal Tactics, Weather Reports and other Predictable Things
In my last post I discussed how Barack and his minions are dusting off the old 2008 campaign tactics in a (clearly failing) attempt to paddle against the current that has their party circling the political toilet bowl. Free concerts are again giving the illusion that Barack can still draw large crowds… People are fainting in his presence again… and his ACORN-esque foot soldiers are out in full force again faking | Read More »
Looking for the Pony in a Pile of Liberal Horse[EXPLETIVE)
I am sitting here watching the rescue attempts to finally extract the Miners who have been trapped a half mile below the surface of the earth for the and I am prying for the smooth running of their pending freedom. I am also proud… proud of the American efforts making this moment possible. It was an American who was singled out to drill the access hole into | Read More »
Obama B. Demille – Calling Once Again on his Inner “Cecil” to create his “Cast(s) of Thousands”
Come on… You have to admit, it’s getting pretty funny over there on the left. Let’s start with the farce called the “One Nation Working Together Debackle Rally”. Where the attendants of Glenn Beck’s rally were average citizens who paid and made their own way to Washington, the liberal gathering was full of purple-shirted security thugs members of SEIU and gaggles of Communists and Socialists | Read More »
Charlie said he wants to go to Washington… to “CRASH” the TEA PARTY…
Ahhh yes… Charlie Crist… My governor and Republican Independent candidate for the US Senate… I watched the debate… First time I watched the news on “abc” since…. ah… Who cares? Anyway… What was most interesting was Crist’s opening statement, which he began with yet another explanation of “why” he chose to screw abandon the Republican party and run as an Independent… I guess he still feels the voters | Read More »
What do Tea Party Americans and the Detroit Red Wings have in Common?
Although I live in Florida now, I lived in Royal Oak, Michigan for 20 years… and while I have been caught cheering for the Tampa Bay Lightning now and then I will always have a special place in my heart for the Detroit Red Wings. You see… outside of providing me with some (predominantly depressing) seasonal entertainment for two decades, they taught me something very | Read More »
Keeping Up with the ever evolving “Liberal New World Dictionary”
In an effort to help you (and myself) to avoid confusion when listening to reports of things we use to think we almost understood, I have comprised a list of a few of the many evolving terms and word definitions… which may or may not apply by the time I finish this post. Democrats no longer want to be called “Liberals” because that word has | Read More »
Florida GOP to Charlie Crist – “We want our money back”.
In my last Slap Charlie post, I said: What I want to do here is give myself something to look forward to by giving focus to what I feel is the pending (and much deserved) demise of Charlie’s lofty political ambitions… which is currently being played out on a more delightfully public stage through his ridiculous and unwittingly clumsy bid for a seat in the US Senate. Well, Like the Good Book | Read More »
Mr. Crist?………. Gi’meyourdamn phone.
I live in Florida. Charlie Crist is my Governor. He wants to be my senator… But ever since he took office, locating the man who promised to come to work “every day” is like playing an enfuriating game of Where’s Waldo. I tell you, some days lately I just don’t know whether to scream or pull my hair out. Every time I see Charlie | Read More »
Charlie Crist – New Campaign Ad (nothing new)
By the content of previous posts… you may have gathered I am not much of a Charlie Crist fan. Personally, I think he’s a hack… another “pretty boy” who thinks he deserves to be vaulted to higher places of power simply by virtue of his own belief that he looks good on camera and he likes the sound of applause… But against his many campaign | Read More »
