Calling out the Right, Republicans and other jerks in politics

Buyer’s Remorse?

And now, we can all relax and enjoy the fruits of last November’s labors…

  • Wowwwww: State of Alabama, Governor Robert Bentley (r-…Christians?) post-inauguration speech, minute two:  “Anybody here today who has not accepted Jesus Christ as their savior, I’m telling you, you’re not my brother and you’re not my sister…”  Seriously, fastest foot-in-the-mouth ever?
  • Here’s to keeping the discourse civil: Yesterday, the new republican-led House of Representatives wasted their time on a purely symbolic vote and passed the cleverly-titled “Repealing the Job-Killing Health Care Law Act”.  Just following the lead of AT LEAST…1 in 4 Americans…who support their efforts.  Can’t get enough of that good old “job-killing” meme republicans have been repeating over and over…and over?  Let John Stewart tear it apart for you…    
  • Taking some time to honor the spirit of Joe McCarthy: You know what we need to improve relations with the Muslim community, both at home and abroad?  Well, probably not rep. Steve King’s (r-NY and new Chair of the House Homeland Security Committee) highly-publicized upcoming hearings on the “radicalization of Muslims in America”.  This will be good…
  • Tea Party relishes new, more civil role in political discourse: Tea Party Nation Founder, Judson Phillips, raises the bar:  “In 2008, Obama even received campaign contributions from Gaza (I.e. Hamas). So where does a corrupt, unpopular President from the party of treason go for reelection cash? China, of course.”  Clearly, Obama is just jealous of the success of the secretive, foreign-funded Chamber of Commerce in catapulting the republican party to victory last fall.
  • No one is more persecuted than Sarah Palin: In the wake of a mass shooting involving a prominent politician, criticism from anyone in the media of Ms. Palin’s use of violent imagery to “target” democratic politicians in the midterm election campaign is “blood libel“.  Criticism of her use of the term blood libel is, of course, simply “the latest round of an ongoing pogrom against conservative thinkers.”  Where does the term “blood libel” come from?  Never heard of a “pogrom?”  Yeahhhhh…thats where we are folks…
  • Michelle Bachmann (r-MN) – unclear on how it works: So, efforts to repeal health care reform running into some obstacles are they?  I guess the next step is to repeal…the President and Senate!!  Oh, Michelle…what would we do without you?

Let the good times roll…
