Yesterday was a bad day for the GOP but we should remember they've had many bad days recently and that its fun to watch their heads explode
Sarah Jones says Republicans must evolve or die. Rand Paul chose a third option: third grade: "[he] wasn't sure [Obama's] views on marriage could get any gayer"
While political attention is riveted on Washington, millions of dollars are flowing into state campaign coffers in preparation for a rebirth of the Articles of Confederation where states will function as their own bosses and to hell with Washington..
Conservatives can't handle the truth about the aftermath of slavery or neo-slavery and how it still affects African Americans lives today.
While talking about Rand Paul, Rush Limbaugh claimed that the TSA would be justified in detaining Ron Paul because he sounds like an Islamic terrorist.
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.
You might not know it, but there’s a quiet war going on this election season. It's being waged in state law and through Tea Party candidates and Republicans. It’s a war against American women.
New polls released in Kentucky, Nevada, and California show that Democrats are making a big comeback in each state, and the tide may be turning against the GOP. In Kentucky Rand Paul has blown a 15 point lead in less than a month. In Nevada, Harry Reid is up by 5 points on Sharron Angle, and in California the Democrats in both the gubernatorial and the Senate races now lead.
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.
Since 2009 when Sarah Palin boycotted all, non conservative political media, her behavior has been picked up on by Republican Tea Party candidates like Sharron Angle and Rand Paul with the result being that voters are now expected to make a decision on these candidates without much information, which can only lead to disastrous consequences for our democracy.
On the debut of the Fox Business program Freedom Watch today, Rand Paul emerged from hiding today long enough to hear Sarah Palin tell him, "Yeah, it's a double edged sword isn't it, if my name gets attached to your candidacy, and here you are being misconstrued by the lamestream media, and they take things out of context."
Sarah Palin was on Fox News Sunday today and when asked about Rand Paul's comments on the Civil Rights Act, she blamed the media, specifically Rachel Maddow. Palin said, "Being able to engage in a discussion with a TV character media a media personality who perhaps had an agenda in answering the question and interpreting his answer as she did."
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.
By any standard Republican Kentucky Senate nominee Rand Paul has had a terrible week. He followed up winning the GOP nomination on Tuesday with a disastrous appearance on the Rachel Maddow Show, which he followed up with an even worse appearance on ABC's Good Morning America where he defended BP and the oil spill. Most telling is the way that his Tea Party backers, including Sarah Palin have remained silent on his comments.
FNC contributor John Stossel was on Fox News' America Live today where he voiced his agreement with Kentucky GOP Senate candidate Rand Paul that part of the civil rights ought to be repealed so that businesses can discriminate based on race. Stossel said, "It's time now to repeal that part of the law because private businesses ought to get to discriminate... it should be their right to be racist."
