Mitch McConnell and his Republican brethren are holding legislation hostage until the Democrats give them tax cuts for the rich. They claimed that this pledge didn’t include the START treaty, and then like clockwork, they started denouncing the START treaty. Democrats are beginning to realize that negotiating with Republicans “is almost like negotiating with terrorists”.
This morning on Fox & Friends, a Fox Cheerleader in a plunging neckline meant to distract the viewer from the obvious dishonesty in her argument sold propaganda about how the poor rich folks needed those tax cuts for the trickle down jobs. Not even Juan Williams could rein in his shock at the audacity of her talking points.
Sarah Palin has made it to the big time; she’s now being called out for her unpatriotic behavior by international media. Yesterday, the Russian paper Pravda eviscerated Sarah Palin for her unrelenting attacks upon the democratically elected President, at a time when America needs to stand together, united.
Joe Barton, the ranking House Energy and Commerce Committee Republican, is circulating a slideshow via email in which he pledges to do for the Obama administration what Gen. Patton and company did for Germany, including “put anything in my scope and I will shoot it.” A party of integrity would call for a public reprimand via a censure of such behavior, but you can bet the Republicans will roll with this kind of reprehensible behavior so long as it continues to be politically advantageous among their base.
Christine O’Donnell showed up this morning on Good Morning America to talk about how weak our President has been on the current Wikileaks cable dump. She managed to be a good puppet Grizzly for her Mama Bear, suggesting that President Obama was incompetent and that she would vote for Hillary Clinton in 2012 primaries because “anybody is better than Obama.”
Today the GOP’s best and brightest, Ms Sarah Palin, tweeted what she intended to be a dig at President Obama over his handling of the Wikileaks situation. Unfortunately, as is so often the case with Ms Palin, her jab is going to come right back on her, so full of tells as to why she shouldn’t be anywhere near power as it is.
This morning, Glenn Beck assumes we should shut down WikiLeaks like we shut down the Prada infringers, in order to enjoin publication of the cables. In doing so, Beck skips over the tug of war between a transparent government and the protection of U.S. national security, the eternal tango between the need to limit power without rendering it impotent. As Lord Acton warned, “Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely. Great men are almost always bad men.”
Yes, as we all suspected, the right had a stake in echoing the TSA outrage and now they’ve come out with it on Fox. Their solution? Private security corporations should take over for the TSA and also, too, aggressive profiling is necessary (but only of the Muslims, not of the blond whites- FYI).
In another sad, desperate attempt to get media attention on a holiday, Sarah Palin spent her Thanksgiving day licking her wounds on Facebook and creepily stalking the President, who has better things to do with his day than acknowledge she who has not earned his attention.
This morning on Glenn Beck’s radio show, Sarah Palin revealed that she thinks North Korea are our allies and she’s gravely concerned over Obama’s handling of our North Korean allies. So, yeah. Sarah Palin doesn’t know the difference between North and South Korea.
In Sarah Palin’s second book (also known as propaganda; a fact Palin herself admitted on Fox last night, albeit unknowingly- as she seems to do just about everything), “America by Heart,” she accuses the President of having an “enemy centric foreign policy” and reveals that she is spectacularly clueless about what an enemy centric foreign policy is.
This is about drunken frat boys at the helm of the economy, sliding daddy’s credit card to pay for anything that suits their fancy and never stopping to think about the bill and then smugly turning around and running on being fiscally conservative.
Palin is stuck in 2008, banking on the press of 2008, when in fact, she will be dealing with a different animal all together. Welcome to the press of 2012, Ms Palin. You will be the center of their attention, just like you’ve always dreamed, but I’m afraid it may well turn into your nightmare.
Yesterday our country suffered the breath-taking blow of hearing Sarah Palin announce that she thinks she can beat President Obama when she runs for President. Today, new polling data shows that the majority of Americans do not think Sarah Palin represents the middle class. That would be those “real Americans” Palin is always dropping her “g”s to ingratiate herself with. Apparently they are not as gullible as Palin hoped. So, that would be a no, you can’t, Ms Palin, regarding beating President Obama in 2012.
The most salient note regarding Willow and Bristol Palin’s facebook slurs is the awkward timing of reality, rearing his mean little head and directly conflicting with the carefully crafted image of angelic wholesome Northern Barbie Family who like to shoot and pray together so cheerfully sold to us on Palin’s reality TV show.
This morning on Fox News, the erstwhile “news” people at the GOP PAC are pretending that President Obama is the earmark bogey man and that they will be the driving force in getting him to support banning earmarks. This would be a great sale of baloney if only reading people the country wide didn’t already know that the President has been attempting to get earmarks killed for oh, ever since he was a Senator.
I’m sure you’ve heard all about how incoming House Republican majority are going to end earmarks and reform DC, even as they staff up using K streeters and lobbyists. But to really shake things up, they’re going to get rid of the Office of Congressional Ethics. Nothing says reform like getting rid of oversight all together.
If ever you wondered if Sarah Palin was indeed the next coming of Christ, her reality TV show proves that not only does Palin own Alaska, but that she is your next Messiah. Special props for the brilliant Jesus propaganda where Palin is backlit angelically with her arms up to the Heavens and music by Christian rock band Third Day calls, “Follow me there!” over and over and over again.
Here’s Bill on the November 14 edition of Fox Broadcasting Co.’s Fox News Sunday, finally figuring out how to solve the national crisis his party created. His solution? The President should bang his head against the same brick wall of failed ideas that the Republicans refuse to give up, regardless of reality! Who can say Bill doesn’t love America?
You Thought It Was Just DWTS, but It’s 2008 Redo for the “Country” Vote! Palin for President if Bristol wins. To this end, Conservatives 4 Palin is hosting a vote-a-thon love fest with hints and clues about how to cheat the vote, because nothing says American like robbing others of their place just so you can prove that your chosen one is the most beloved, even if you have to lie to make it so!
