At a town hall protest in San Diego over the weekend a town hall protester tried to say that healthcare reform is unconstitutional, but it didn't quite come out that way. He said, "I got a book here called the U.S.S. Constitution." Ahoy, matey, the U.S.S. Constitution may not give the government authority to reform healthcare, but the U.S. Constitution does.
On his FNC program today Glenn Beck claimed that Barack Obama is going to bomb the Canadian oil pipelines to nationalize the oil and gas industries. Beck said, "Oh they'll say they didn't want to seize control of the oil companies....but we had to." I think someone has been watching the South Park movie again.
So, the Great Last Hope of the birthers, and one I might add, they touted with great pride on national TV just yesterday, was totally debunked in the Australian press. Ouch! By the way, what in the heck were they doing copying an Australian birth certificate and passing it off as Kenyan? Maybe Palin told them Australia was a continent in Africa?
The violence brewing in video clips of the astroturffing tea baggers hell bent on making sure no intelligent debate can take place in Town Hall meetings regarding Healthcare has thrown even the unflappable, calm, rational ex-clown, Glenn Beck, into a tizzy of fear. Glenn Beck has begged his viewers not to turn violent.
I don't know about you, but I'm just sittin' here imagining the horrors that will be bestowed upon this great nation when empathy is brought to the bench. And not just empathy, my fellow real Americans, but empathy with a point of view, other than rich white man (or Other masquerading as such).
They were literally seconds from accomplishing the vote, so they could move to more important things. Things like Republican Thadeus McCotter's bill to force President Obama to apologize (down on your knees, boy!) -- clearly a much better use of their time; Michigan must be so proud -- when at the very last second, Republican Rep. Michele "Crazy Eyes" Bachmann tried to be a "good Republican" (oxymoron or just moron?) who would save the birthers by blocking the vote! Go, Michelle!!
President Obama is in Rome for an historic meeting with Pope Benedict XVI, and the President is doing what any sane, rational leader should do. He is open to hearing those he disagrees with. He is not running a theocracy. He knows what he stands for, but is willing to find a common thread of agreement. I dig.
Remember how Bailin' Palin was quittin' to save Alaskans money from all the "Political operatives (who) descended on Alaska" and charged all those mean, pesky ethics complaints against Her Royal Self? She claimed that the ethics investigations cost 2 million dollars. The problem is that her math doesn't add up. It is time to debunk another Palin myth.
In an interview with Esquire Magazine Jeb Bush claimed that Barack Obama is not more popular than his brother former president George W. Bush. Jeb said, "First of all, who cares? His popularity is no greater --- in fact it's less --- than what my brother's was during the beginning of his tenure." Actually, Obama is more popular than Bush.
Sarah Palin wants to be President so the " White House's Department of Law" will protect her from ethical allegations...Yes, this is who the Republican party is selling us now, as we near the next stop on the Crazy Talk Express.
Palin is calling all feminists to arms. Palin as feminist is a little hard to swallow, but she suggests we let her record speak for her. So, let's take a peek.
The human spirit always longs for freedom and justice. The protest we're witnessing right now is a result of pure, raw humanity at its best. It's universal. It's something we all share. Pondering the immense power of the human spirit gives rise to great hope. Dare I say, hope for a different world in the future?
On his radio show today, Glenn Beck defended the extremism of Holocaust Museum shooter James von Brunn. Beck compared Brunn's opposition to the Fed to Thomas Jefferson. He claimed that Brunn was labeled right wing extremist because he was against the Fed. He ignored Brunn's white supremacist beliefs and his conviction for his armed kidnapping plot at the Fed.
Today on Fox News Sunday, Sen. Richard Shelby (R-AL) tried to blame President Obama for the bank bailouts last fall. The Rev. Pat Robertson and Dick Cheney have also recently made the same claim, but by their definition of socialism, if Obama is a Socialist, so is George W. Bush, but this little fact hasn't stopped the GOP from revising bailout history.
On his Fox News show today, host Glenn Beck and guest Jonah Goldberg compared GM bankruptcy to the Nazi government's creation of Volkswagon. Goldberg made the claim that GM's bankruptcy is all part of Obama's central plan. The option he advocated was to allow the automakers to fail, which would have turned the recession into a depression, but Beck and company didn't consider that.
At first Glenn Beck compared ACORN to Nazis, then he worried that ACORN was coming to break his kneecaps, but things went to a whole new level today on his Fox News show. Beck suggested that ACORN would try to kill him. Yes, Glenn Beck is concerned that a voter registration organization might try to kill him.
Today, in response to a caller asking about the "slippery slope of gay marriage," Glenn Beck claimed that gay marriage laws would result in incest, because siblings would be allowed to get married as long as they got fixed, and didn't have children because they would make mutants.
Glenn Beck went on a wild rant on his radio show today. He concluded that President Obama wants to appoint a Marxist judge to the Supreme Court, because Obama used the word compassion when talking about his potential Supreme Court pick. Beck said that the word compassion is Marxist code.
Patriarchal Barbie, aka, Gov Sarah Palin, strikes again. Palin is backing a ballot measure to bypass the Legislature and make it illegal for teenagers to get an abortion without telling their parents.
Glenn Beck might be a delusional conspiracy theorist, but at least he admits that he blubbers all the time and he is 90% chick.On his show recently, Beck claimed that his caring is misunderstood by the media, but I think Beck is the perfect voice for a Republican Party that has itself has become a blubbering mess.
