Failed Gubernatorial Nominee Goes Nuclear On The State Legislative Black Caucus
South Carolina just gets better and better. I mean, just when you think it’s run out of insanity, what with flamingly “southern” Republican lobbyists and lying bloggers trying to take out Nikki Haley, State Senator Jake Knotts resorting to racial slurs, and a random unemployed dude landing the Democrat nomination for US Senate – not to mention a sitting Governor who goes missing and shows up | Read More »
Dems Spend $125m to Campaign For a Law They’ve Already Passed
Back in March, President Obama signed into law the Democratic wet dream that is a national health care plan, complete with an individual mandate. Since then, they’ve failed to gain support for the monstrosity of a reform… which is why they now need to spend $125 million to try to manufacture some support. Former Senate Majority Leader Tom Daschle (D-S.D.) and Victoria Kennedy — widow of Sen. | Read More »
Bennett: So you booted me, but how about I pick my replacement?
Bob Bennett got knocked out of the Utah race before the runoff even happened. Just to put in perspective what a huge win that was for the movement, it had been 70 years since an incumbent had been knocked out of a primary in Utah. That’s what happens when you’re a “Republican” who drafted a health care plan that included an individual mandate, supported TARP, | Read More »
What role did Palin play in the primaries? And why is the Left talking about her boobs?
There’s been a lot of talk about what yesterday meant for the Tea Party movement and specifically, how much Sarah Palin’s endorsements – which she handed out like candy – had to do with the wins and losses. How much of it was anti-incumbent rage? Anti-establishment rage? Anti-big government rage? Melissa Clouthier at Liberty Pundits writes: I don’t buy the whole anti-incumbent thing. I think | Read More »
Whoever takes Helen Thomas’ spot should show up to work wearing ruby slippers
(Title credit goes to Knifework) Apparently, the flip camera was the metaphoric house that destroyed the anti-Semitic Wicked Witch of the White House press corps. Her “retirement” was announced by her employer, Hearst News Service, this morning following last week’s debacle resulting from Thomas telling the Jews in “Palestine” to “get the hell out” and “go back to Germany and Poland.” To any thinking person, | Read More »
Women Objectified By The Big Bad Blogger Men.
John Hawkins of RightWingNews.com released his 20 Hottest Women in New Media last week. As these lists always do, it’s brought about a fresh round of controversy – both from those whose crush was left off the list, as well as those who are righteously indignant about the objectification of the women on the list. The objectification of men seems to not be an issue… | Read More »
White House: Clinton just talked to Sestak. No big deal.
When in doubt, blame a Clinton: Senior White House advisers asked former President Bill Clinton to talk to Joe Sestak about whether he was serious about running for Senate, and to feel out whether he’d be open to other alternatives, according to sources familiar with the situation. But the White House maintains that the Clinton-Sestak discussions were informal, according to the sources. The White House, under pressure | Read More »
Judiciary Committee Republicans: Do your job, Holder.
Done with the White House non-response to the claims that Joe Sestak (who recently beat out Obama-endorsed Specter in the Pennsylvania Senate primary) received a job offer from the White House, all seven Republicans on the Senate Judiciary Committee have stepped up to demand a proper investigation from AG Holder. Via Jake Tapper: “If such things happened they would constitute a serious breach of the law,” | Read More »
Senatorial priorities: Let’s ban the word “retarded”
From The Hill: The Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee on Wednesday unanimously approved a bill that would eliminate the use of the words “retarded” and “retardation” in federal health, education and labor law. Rosa’s Law, introduced by Sen. Barbara Mikulski (D-Md.), had strong bipartisan support. It would replace the terms “mental retardation” with “intellectual disability” and “mentally retarded individual” to “individual with an | Read More »
President Obama’s Terrible, Awful, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day.
There’s no doubt it’s been a rough day (well, week) over at the White House. Let’s recap. The oil spill in the Gulf has rightly been coined “Obama’s Katrina.” They haven’t done anything, trying to walk the line of making BP pay for their mistakes without actually doing anything yourself. From Jason Meath at BigGovernment.com: The White House answer to the disaster in the Gulf: | Read More »
SEIU thugs trap bank lawyer’s teenager in house
From Megyn Kelley: “This was not at the bank’s corporate offices – it was at a man’s home.” Mark Sawyer is completely insane, so this clip is a little rough. I apologize in advance. First of all, he claims the Black Panthers haven’t been around since 1968? What? Did he forget this? Or this? Or this? And this was just this month! That’s right y’all. | Read More »
Dear Washington Times: Seriously?
Who remembers Dale Robertson? Well, if you don’t know his name (which I’d honestly forgotten), I’m certain you remember his notoriously ignorant, humiliating moment at a Tea Party in Texas. The Washington Times has managed to give credibility to this delusional racist who claims to be the founder of the Tea Party. As Tommy Christopher points out, they’ve consistently quoted him as a Tea Party | Read More »
Stutzman jumps into the race for Souder’s seat
Disgraced Indiana Rep. Mark Souder resigned this week in the wake of the news of his affair with a female staffer. Souder just won a tough primary for his seat… which is now going to a special election, as there CLEARLY haven’t been enough of those this year. The date hasn’t been determined yet. State Sen. Marlin Stutzman announced today that he was jumping into | Read More »
Liveblogging from End the Bailouts: A Greek Forum
I’m currently sitting at the Capitol, looking at an empty table that will soon be filled with the likes of Rep. Mike Pence, Sen. Jim DeMint, Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers, Rep. Tom McClintock, and others to discuss the Greek bailouts and the impact they’ll have on the US Economy. There’s a livestream below the fold. Stay tuned until about noon for constant updates from the | Read More »
Nancy Pelosi: Hey, quit your job. We got your back!
Nancy Pelosi spoke at the Asian American and Pacific Islanders Summit on Capitol Hill last Friday, informing them that because of the new health care reform, they would no longer be “job locked.” Here’s the quote: “We see it as an entrepreneurial bill,” Pelosi said, “a bill that says to someone, if you want to be creative and be a musician or whatever, you can | Read More »
