In a story posted by Daniel Strauss of Talking Points Memo on Tuesday, Thom Tillis, North Carolina's State House Speaker and Republican nominee for US Senate, did an interview in 2012 where he suggested that Hispanics and blacks are not 'traditional' Americans.
Ted Cruz (R-TX) believes that pastors will be in jail for speaking up in defense of what extremists like himself pretend is 'traditional' marriage.
Cathie Adams' stunning conclusion that Grover Norquist is a Muslim because he has a beard, left me speechless despite five years of Tea Party stupidity
Reality is the ultimate enemy of Republican ideology, so Tom Tancredo picks up his vorpal blade and shows himself asylum-ready
Tea Party hero Joe Walsh told a diner full of old white folks that Sandra Fluke needs to get a job, equating healthcare with'entitlement
When the horse trading starts, things could get squirrelly and unpredictable during the GOP's Nevada caucuses.
In response to the federal investigation launched into the allegation that she used $20,000 of campaign funds to pay for her own living expenses, Christine O’Donnell has lost the last thread of sanity that she had left. O’Donnell did her best to keep the cash flowing by claiming that the left is out to get her, while forgetting that it was her own Republican campaign staff that outed her for misuse of funds. In short, Christine O'Donnell is bat shit crazy.
Miller lost his federal case - the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals threw out his lawsuit on Tuesday, just a week after the Alaska Supreme Court did the same.
While speaking in Virginia last night, Sarah Palin's mini-me Christine O'Donnell compared the extension of unemployment benefits for 2 million Americans to Pearl Harbor. O'Donnell said, "Tragedy comes in threes, Pearl Harbor, Elizabeth Edwards's passing and Barack Obama's announcement of extending the tax cuts, which is good, but also extending the unemployment benefits."
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.”
Sure, 113 GOP women challenged incumbents compared to 80 Democrats but the Democrats had a 46 percent success rate compared to only 28 for the Republicans. And Democrat women still far outnumber Republican women in Congress.
Words and actions have consequences, sometimes to the person who speaks, sometimes to the people spoken of. In an environment of hate and xenophobia, the consequences can be deadly and widespread.
God doesn’t get a vote in the United States. The people vote. You remember us, the people you are supposed to be wanting to represent, the people who VOTE according to the Constitution. Surely you remember us. I mean, you said you ARE us, didn’t you?
The Republicans talk a lot about prayer, a natural off-shoot of their tendency to talk about God. If there was any lingering doubt about the Grand Old Party having become God’s Own Party, the 2008 elections should have dispelled it, and the lead-up to the 2010 midterms have only cemented the new Republican focus.
Witchcraft is all the craze again, and we can’t blame Bill Maher for it, or even Christine O’Donnell. After all, it was Sarah Palin back in 2008 who found a video of her receiving blessings against witchcraft being administered flying around the internet.
As the nation steams ahead towards Election Day 2010, we are starting to find out the true meaning of the term common sense conservative. Apparently this term means that the conservative substitutes common sense for actual knowledge of the Constitution, or in the case of Christine O'Donnell absolute ignorance of the Constitution.
The Republican Party must sign its own death warrant in the general elections. The Grand Old Party, by selling out first to the Religious Right and then trying to co-opt the Tea Party, has found itself between a rock and a hard place.
Republican candidate Christine O'Donnell has taken another page from Sarah Palin's playbook by going rogue and blaming the GOP for her expected defeat. On ABC's This Week O'Donnell said, "We're hoping that the National Republican Senatorial Committee will help us, but it's two and half weeks left, and they're not."
In an effort to console an exasperated Chris Coons, last night on his HBO show Real Time, Bill Maher served up a montage of Christine O'Donnell's most exasperating and obnoxious moments from Politically Incorrect. The list of people she annoyed included, Al Franken, Ben Affleck, Patrick Duffy, and Penn Jillette.
Money numbers are in and it looks like our ladies of the far Right are being amply rewarded for their sublimely obtuse renditions of Poujadist Puppetry as candidate routines. Tea Party candidates Sharron Angle and Christine O’Donnell both pulled in a ton of cash in the last few months. And you were wondering what those Brawny paper towels were good for.
