Republican Representative Wishes Sarah Palin Would “Butt-Out” of Primaries

Republican to Palin: Butt Out

Before Republican Gubernatorial Candidate Karen Handel conceded today, Georgia Republican Representative Jack Kingston was on the radio show "America's Morning News" with John McCaslin & Amy Holmes when he expressed his displeasure with Sarah Palin sticking her nose into Republican primaries all over the country, and said he thought Georgians would be "doin' their own thing". Kingston prefers Palin "butt out" of Georgia politics and urges Republicans to "rethink Palin as someone who shoots from the hip."

The Tea Party’s Support of Republicans’ Most Corrupt Bastards

The sixth tenet of the Tea Party is to end corruption and yet they've aligned themselves with the most corrupt party. Corruption spreads on both sides of the aisle. Of late, it’s made a happy home in the Republican Party simply because like mold, corruption takes root in the right environment. The modern day Republican Party is loath to hold its leaders accountable for violating ethics laws. The list of busted criminals and cheats currently in office is astounding.

The Tea Party Unveils Their Contract On America

Now, after eight years of having our Constitution violated, our rights violated, and Bush acting like a "dictator" in office according to constitutional scholars, the GOP aka the Tea Party are at it again. They trying to gain the power to recall NJ US Sen. Menendez. They dress as patriots but they are traitors to freedom and democracy.

The Looming Threat of Republican Destruction of This Economy

As the fall election nears, the buzz is that if the economy doesn’t recover, the Democrats will take a hard hit. Apparently the American people are too ignorant and lazy to remember exactly how we got into this mess in the first place, and will cast their reactionary votes of anger this fall against the “party in power” as if that makes any sense at all; thereby reelecting the clowns who not only are voting no on their own ideas in order to keep this economy a mess and help themselves politically, but also the very clowns who put their clown shoes on the gas pedal of recklessness that got us here.

The Party of No Sabotages Small Business

For years, Republicans have been selling themselves as the party of business, using Small Business as the banner from which to launch their tax cuts for huge corporations, think Joe the Plumber, but when push comes to shove as with today’s Senate vote on the small business jobs bill, The Party of No reveals that it is November calculus, not small businesses that really matter.

Fox News Hangs Sharron Angle Out To Dry

Even Fox News isn't Safe for Sharron Angle

Fox News Network, the champion if not creator of the Tea Party, hung Tea Party “rape can be made into lemonade” nut job Sharron Angle (R-NV) out to dry earlier this week. Perhaps Fox is miffed over losing their favorite, the chicken lady, to run against that evil of humanity, Harry Reid and so felt compelled to use poor Sharron Angle to demonstrate their “balance” by annihilating her on Cavuto’s “Your World”

Scott Brown Rejects Both Democracy and the Disclose Act

Scott Brown Delivers Death Blow to Campaign Finance Reform

By refusing to vote for the Disclosure Act, Brown is ensuring that our elections can be bought by special interests and big corporate powers without any fingerprints. Meaning that groups like, um, FreedomWorks can influence elections masquerading as grassroots movements, when in fact, they are funded by very interested corporate parties. FreedomWorks, doubling as a grass roots movement for the Tea Party, gave quite a pretty penny to old Scooter.

White Republican Overseers Order Obama to Do His Job

Republicans who are loath to do their own jobs are thankfully not reticent to run around pointing fingers at Obama and demand, “Mr. President! Do your job!” This is said in what I can assure you is not a racist tone, because the only racism we need to worry about is reverse racism, as you would know if you were a rich white man who has suffered mightily trying to get someone to stop you and ask for your birth certificate.

Democrats Chip Away at 40 Years of Radical Pro-Business Legislation

A Senate committee on Wednesday voted to eliminate limits on liability that oil companies would face for damages stemming from offshore spills like the one in the Gulf of Mexico. The President signaled his support for higher or no caps on liability for oil companies earlier this month. While it may seem like this is just another meaningless vote, a closer examination reveals a huge paradigm shift under way, and it would be wise for voters to pay attention.

Sarah Palin and Nikki Haley’s Right Wing Persecution Complex

Sarah Palin Smugging Up Her Endorsement of Tea Party fav Haley

Sarah Palin took to her Facebook page to defend yet another persecuted Christian (aka, Tea Party favorite) in South Carolina, Nikki Haley. Haley is the front-runner in the Republican primary for Governor of South Carolina and she has been accused of having an affair with a staffer by said staffer who recently announced the affair on his blog. In reality, this isn't persecution, this is politics.

The Palinization of Rand Paul

Palinization of Rand Paul

After a humiliating stint on the Rachel Maddow show wherein Kentucky Republican Senate candidate Rand Paul demonstrated a special talent in the art of the duck and dodge, Paul continued to Palinize himself the next day -- wrapping himself in indignation, in order to mask his own deep inadequacy and lack of preparation for the important office he seeks.

Palin and the GOP Disguise Mock and Scorn as Public Policy

Mock and Scorn

In the last few years, the far right has brought this nation teetering to the utter brink of moral bankruptcy by selling mock and scorn as workable public policy. We see this in their leaders (Sarah Palin) and followers (the Teabaggers), whose team jersey is contemptuous wanton violence -- their faces screwed up into a rictus of wrath, lips snarled in ridicule as they arrogantly spew the hubristic litter of Fox News talking points.

GOP Uses SECRET HOLD To Obstruct Record Number of Nominees

A dark storm is brewing over the Senate as Republicans obstruct Presidential nominees in record numbers, abusing secret hold and laundering holds in an attempt to outrun Senate rules. The Republicans' unprecedented use of secret holds has almost brought government to a standstill, and yet they've avoided all accountability for their actions by hiding under the cloak of anonymity. Senator Claire McCaskill tried to force them to own up to their holds this week.

“Liberal Elite” Washington Post Advances Fox’s Miranda Lies

The Washington Post, that "liberal elite" paper, is following in Fox's footsteps by regurgitating false Miranda information, suggesting that Miranda rights are optional and should not be employed with suspected terrorists, even if said suspect is an American citizen. Fox News has long advanced the claim that reading Abdulmutallab Miranda rights compromised the government's ability to get information. This, of course, was not an issue for Fox when the Bush administration handled the suspected terrorists the exact same way. When they're not trying to terrorize Americans into voting for them, the Right is trying to terrorize Americans into giving away all of their freedoms.

A Weekly Round Up of the Republican Wing Nut Circus May 2, 2010

GOP Circus

A weekly round up of the Republican Wing Nut Circus: This week, Republicans were freaked out over good news about the economy (say it ain’t so, Joe!) so in their ever impressive attempt to "take back their country", they did what all Real Americans do -- they focused on animals. Yes, from suggesting we barter chickens for healthcare to comparing illegal immigrants to dogs,it's been a wild GOP ride this week. Please no comments on the disturbing Freudian slips of the party of Repression and Regression. This is tough enough.

Once Upon A Time Republicans and Democrats Agreed On Illegal Immigration

Ironically, in 2006, all of the players you now see polarized had agreed to an immigration reform bill co-sponsored by Democrat Ted Kennedy and Republican John McCain. Said bill is now way too sane for McCain to put his name to, as he is busy selling his soul to the radical right and taking his friend Lindsey Graham down with him. Anything to keep his seat. Country First. Yada yada.

Internal Implosion in the RNC as Top Fundraiser Palin Bails on Them

Palin Demands RNC Take Her Name Off of Fundraisers

It seems Sister Sarah is too pristine to associate with the likes of the RNC (bondage themes aside, as she remains their Mistress of Scold). And while many are saying this is a bad move on her part, it’s actually more of the same quite successful tactics she has been using to get elected since she started her political career with around 600 votes back in Wasilla. read more
