Poor Michele… She just can’t feel Jesus’ love inside the GOP anymore. After running her mouth off on Hardball with Chris Matthews saying she thought Obama had “anti-American sentiments” and then called for the liberal media to investigate members of Congress for suspicions of “anti-American sentiments”, she’s seemed to have discovered “anti-Bachmann sentiments” coming out of the leadership of her own Republican Party.

First up: the NRCC. Headed by Tom Cole (R-OK CD#4). The National Republican Congressional Committee has apparently decided that Michele Bachmann has become such a liability that they’ve cut off all advertising funds for her campaign.

Ouch! It’s pretty well decided: Michele Bachmann’s hate-mongering mouth is not a course of action that the GOP Leadership wants to invest into…

Compare and Contrast: Fox News dumps Michelle Malkin for being a crazy hate-monger – the NRCC dumps Michele Bachmann for being the exact.same.thing.

From Politico:

The NRCC had reserved time on behalf of Bachmann in early October, but the money had yet to flow to her district. She was not among the beneficiaries of a rush of new independent expenditures the committee made in the past two days.

Pitchforks and the Torches have gathered in downtown Republicanville and they are none too pleased. In a more accurate word-choice: “They’re mad as Hell and they’re not going to take it anymore!!

Conservative Republican (The Pitchfork Family) Amanda Carpenter over at Townhall whined about the situation. Ms. Carpenter wrote with her Crying Towel nearby:

So what does the NRCC do when the going gets tough for Bachmann? They get going. Far, far away from her.

Apparently, since the NRCC didn’t run up and give bat-shit-crazy Michele Bachmann a giant squeezy-hug and then shove a giant sunflower into her machine-gun mouth… Ms Carpenter feels “left out”. Somebody must have decided that losing General Colin Powell to the Democrats was a bigger loss than losing Michele “I Love GWB” Bachmann and finally… Dumped her!

Editor-in-Chief Erik Erikson, a proud member of the Torch Family, whipped out the big stick from out of his ass and called Tom Cole (R-OK) a douchebag!

Let’s just call Tom Cole (R-OK), the head of the NRCC, what he is: a douchebag.

Erickson seems to be a wee upset, but manages to continue..:

Now, in the height of all douchebaggery, he has pulled all funding from Michelle Bachmann’s very winnable race in Minnesota, in which she is presently leading, though not by a great deal.

Why? Because Bachmann had the nerve to point out Obama pals around with anti-American domestic terrorists and other unsavory characters, i.e. she’s echoed Sarah Palin.

…Just a wee-bit pissed off? Earth To Erickson! Michele Bachmann spells her name with only one “L”…Not Two!! Earth to Erickson… Hello?!? Hello?!?!? Oh crap… Houston1 We’ve lost contact with Erickk Erickkson!!

And then… Erickson whips out his own Crying Towel:

But that’s okay. Apparently we have Republicans to spare.

Sarcasm! I like it!! Pouting?! Hrmm… Not so much.

The folks at Redstate run back to Update the original by clarifying to their guppy-headed faithful on why they’re so upset: They’re mad at Tom Cole for pulling the Bachmann support-ads!!

For perspective, Tom Cole has been sending money to Don Young in Alaska. So attacking the Democrats is unacceptable to Tom Cole, but taint and corruption is perfectly fine.

You still upset I called him a douchebag?

For those who are unaware of what he’s blabbering about, I’ll try to explain…

Alaskan Congresscreature Don Young is under investigation for earmarking $10million dollars to Florida to build/improve a road for one of his major campaign contributers. It’s a nasty story…read it here, here, and here.

Placed into context: (Republican) Redstate Editor-in-Chief, Erik Erickson is complaining that Tom Cole (R-OK), Chair of the National Republican Congressional Committee, will support (Heterosexual) Alaskan Congresscreature Don Young…but he won’t support Minnesota Congresscreature Michele Bachmann because she’s crazier than cow-snot on a barbed-wire fence. And, since watch-dog group CREW (Citizens for Responsibility for Ethics in Washington) has declared Don Young their MOST CORRUPT member in Washington, then it’s obvious — Tom Cole (R-OK) is a douchebag.

Get it?! The Pitchforks and the Torches within Republicanville are demanding the heads of their own Mayors, Dukes and Grand Wizards for doing what they should have done two years ago: They DUMPED BACHMANN!

Ugh!! In the immortal words of the Wicked Witch of the West as she melted away…What a world…what a world….

Minnesota local-yokel Republican, Andy Aplikowski (another Pitchfork) has his Crying Towel front-and-center.

Andy weeps:

I am just absolutely amazed at how far NBC is willing to go to cover up for their hack journalists like Chris Matthews.

Like Joe the Plumber, now Michele Bachmann has been more vetted by the mainstream media than Barrack Obama.

And seriously, they dug up Nick Coleman for this one?
I certainly hope the Republican Party of Minnesota is going to get involved now. Pawlenty threw Bachmann under the bus yesterday and I haven’t heard a single peep from Ron Carey. Let’s not forget that Carey is a constituent of Bachmann’s.

The full scale media attack to destroy Bachmann and twist her words is unreprehensible.

Awww… tsk tsk tsk… Poor Andy… He’s got an Idiot in Congressional Representation, and now that the National Republican Congressional Campaign has dumped her, he’s just going full-tilt with a wide-range on allegations:

  • Chris Mattews is an “NBC Hack”?!
  • NBC is “covering-up” for Matthews?!

Excuse me?!

Dear Andy Apilowski:

Chris Matthews is a “hack”?!

Are you serious?! …Or are you really that “new”?!

Seriously. I recall Chris Matthews booty-smooches GOP Crooks like Tom Delay (R-TX Jail Time) while yucking it up while off the air!!

Are you really that New?!?! Matthews is a “hack” because your Bachmann is that stupid and the GOP is now finding that out?!?”

Mr. Apilowski — Chris Matthews has been your best friend in Media – perhaps you’re the Hack-Job here and Michele Bachmann is the Wack-Job over there in DC!


Fruit F. Fly

Why can’t these Republicans taken responsibility for themselves?! It’s unbelievable!!

Okay all you cry-babies out there… Let’s let the “Mighty Fruit Fly” resolve the dispute for you. Let’s run over to the original transcript and read verbatim what Congresscreature Michele Bachmann said…Exactly

Transcript from the Federal News Service

MATTHEWS: So this is a character issue. You believe that Barack Obama may — you’re suspicious because of this relationship — may have anti-American views. Otherwise it’s probably irrelevant to this discussion.

REP. BACHMANN: Absolutely.

MR. MATTHEWS: So you believe it brings into —

REP. BACHMANN: I absolutely —

MR. MATTHEWS: So you believe that Barack Obama may have anti- American views.

REP. BACHMANN: Absolutely. I’m very concerned that he may have anti-American views. That’s what the American people are concerned about. That’s why they want to know what his answers are. That’s why Joe the plumber has figured so highly in the last few days —

Anything in there that appears like it was as cover-up?! Mr. Apilowski!?! Are you paying attention?!? Did your crazy Congresscreature say those words or did she not?!?!

And about the leaders in Congress? Bachmann says:

MR. MATTHEWS: What about people like Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid, the liberals you were mentioning a moment ago? Where would you put them? Would you consider them anti-American as well?

REP. BACHMANN: I would consider them to have —

MR. MATTHEWS: Are they anti-American?

REP. BACHMANN: — far leftist views. I’m not going to say that they’re anti-American or pro-American.

MR. MATTHEWS: The speaker of the House is —

REP. BACHMANN: I will say the speaker —

So – Nancy Pilosi! Bachmann’s apparently not too sure about Senate Majority Leader Harry Ried… But Speaker of the House, Nancy Pilosi – she’s definitely got some of that “anti-American sentiments” in her. (I’m guessing it’s because Nancy PIlosi’s district is in that “Gay Area” known as San Francisco?!)

And what about the rest of the members of Congress?!

MR. MATTHEWS: Well, he’s a United States senator from Illinois. He’s one of the people you suspect as being anti-American. How many people in the Congress of the United States do you think are anti- American? You’ve already suspected Barack Obama. Is he alone, or are there others? How many do you suspect of your colleagues as being anti-American?

REP. BACHMANN: What I would say — what I would say is that the news media should do a penetrating expose and take a look. I wish they would. I wish the American media would take a great look at the views of the people in Congress and find out, are they pro-America or anti-America? I think people would love to see an expose like that.

She’s a crazy person, you Goofs!!!

Michele Bachmann is nuttier than standing on Cashew Corner in Walnut Grove chewin’ on a Salted Nut Roll!

She’s the Acorn…with extra corn!!


I have a question:

Why does Alaska’s governor, Sarah Palin’s husband Todd Palin get a free-pass on this subject of “Anti-American Sentiments”?!

Alaska’s First Dude belonged to a secessionist movement up there in Wasilla called the “Alaska Independence Party”. Todd Palin would be thrilled to personally rip a star off the American flag at any opportunity by declaring Alaska separate from the United States. And yet; It’s the liberals in congress who are publicly accused on MSNBC with (Pitchfork) Chris Matthews by Minnesota’s Congresscreature Michele Bachmann, but Secessionists who hate America are ignored without regard

The Republican Vice Presidential Candidate applauds those who’ll happily denounce their citizenry of the United States – And that’s ignored. But, being a liberal from San Francisco will get you accused publicly on MSNBC’s Hardball with Chris Matthews.

Stay tuned for more on this horrifying story!!! Coming up soon: MIchele Bachmann hate’s Jesus and His Children by supporting Anti-Christian Petters’ fund-raiser Frank Vennes!!!

Secret Young Republicans training compound located!!

First photos are emerging from behind the enemy lines, where their nefarious indoctrination techniques corrupt the innocent minds of America’s youth and prepare them for a life committed to espousing Republican ideology that runs counter to their own self interests!

We all owe a debt of gratitude to the Democratic operatives that have risked their lives to bring us this first haunting photo:

Elephant Slide

Here we can obviously see a seemingly innocent piece of playground equipment that has been twisted by the right-wing propaganda masters into some sort of sick political metaphor…

Undercover operatives for the Democratic Party have told us that Republican parents force their unwilling children up the molded plastic stairs into the GOP’s “Indoctrination Machine.” These children remain inside for up to 48 hours until they are fully processed. The children, once they are completely transformed into a smelly mass of waste material, will eventually tumble down the chute behind the Indoctrination Machine fully prepared to carry-on the Neocon Agenda.

Said one Republican mother after her child was expelled from the Indoctrination Machine: “Oh, he’s still the little stinker he always was….” where she snickered and waddled away.FruitFly

UNICEF, Save the Children and Sally Struthers have begun nationwide media campaigns to save these poor little children before they’ve become indoctrinated into the little GOP shit’s that’s expected of each and every one of them. So please: If you can give anything, please give to Sally Struther’s Christian Children’s Fund. Because Jesus, and only Jesus could love these little Turds.

I found it on Bartcop Nation… So it must be true!

Feeding Time: Rotting Minnesota GOP Fruit

The Minnesota GOP is quickly collapsing in on themselves in the face of the upcoming Republican Presidential Campaign ’08. Luckily for the DFL, the media is going to be watching these new developments as they unfold throughout the summer months. And let’s remember that (Republican) Governor Tim Pawlently has recently vetoed some budget items that were earmarked for that same campaign.

Front page, lower right hand corner of the Minneapolis Star-Tribune’s Sunday issue bears the headline: Internal complaints roil state GOP office. mexican fruit flies

The fast breakdown is easy: Dwight Tostenson and Larissa Presho have resigned their positions with the party itself. Mr. Tostenson, the party finance director and Ms. Presho, a finance assistant made their concerns known which were ignored and so they’ve left.

Let’s tackle the simpler portion of the story first; Ms. Presho.

Individual retirement accounts for MN GOP staffers have not seen their employer’s contributions into their accounts as directed by state and federal law. That is, depending on who you’re talking to of course. Ms. Presho’s situation gets even more strange by noting that she was offered $5,000 by the MN GOP Deputy Treasurer Marina Taubenberger to marry an illegal immigrant from Columbia.

Presho also wrote that she refused an offer of $5,000 from Taubenberger to marry a Colombian living illegally in the U.S., so that he could remain in the country.

Ms. Taubenberger, who seems to be rather liberal with GOP contributions, paying herself $64,000 between March ’03 and December ’03 and sits as the committee chair for the super-wealthy North Oaks community tennis club throws money around like a drunken-Mexican Irish Catholic. And she’s found enough money to bribe sub-ordinates to marry illegal immigrants from Columbia. This, I tell you, is the model of “American family values”.

But isn’t the first time Ms. Presho has been slighted by her GOP employer. The Minnesota GOP has tried to shut her up on her views in other areas of concern: a.) She’s favors gay marriage, to which her Party tried to keep her quiet about and b.) she’s apparently told GOP officials that she’s an athiest and told to be quiet and tell no one.

I used to work for the Republican Party of MN as a tele-fundraiser. The money was good, but I quit because the political dissonance was far too painfull.

I heard from my then-girlfriend (who also worked in the phone bank) that a woman we worked with, Larissa Presho, was running for the State House, District 58B. She said that Larissa was an atheist, and party officials advised her to keep that little factoid to herself. Of course, this is second- or third-hand information.

Marina Taubenberg’s behavior is suspect in other areas as well.

The newspaper (Star Tribune) obtained a copy of Presho’s e-mailed memo. In it, she said that Taubenberger had encouraged her to mislead state revenue auditors and also encouraged her and another employee to mislead insurance auditors.

I’ll assume Lori Swanson is on top of this story and paying attention. She’s a DFL’er, you know.

Dwight Tostenson’s whining about the GOP is a little more tangled up Presho’s. Although Tostenson hasn’t been offered Five Grand to marry an illegal immigrant from some South American third-world country, he has been complaining about the direction of the MN GOP for some time.

Tostenson has had complaints against Mr. Carey going back to Dec ’05 when they booted their former director out for legal problems and replaced him with Ron Carey. Tostenson’s muttered his grievances like:

At issue is whether members of the Minnesota Autism Center’s board of directors with autistic children pressured staff psychologists to provide treatments, at state expense, that were no longer medically necessary.

The matter is politically sensitive because Hatch is a Democratic-Farmer-Labor candidate for governor, and the chairman of the autism center’s board of directors is state Republican Party Chairman Ron Carey.

(The emphasis was mine of course.)

It’s always those Republicans who are screaming about mis-uses of tax-payer money. This abuse of tax-payer money runs a story itself from Dec 2005 through April 2007 when the Autism Center’s billing practices were published on NBC affiliate KARE-11 here in Minneapolis/St Paul. One of the board members, Kathryn Marshall, who has a child who’s treated at the Autism Center, charged Minnesota tax payers for a trip to Disney World with her kid and a therapist. The case has landed on the lap of MN US Attorney Rachel Poulose’s desk where she’s decided to not say anything, nor do anything about it. In fact, the attorney who represents Ms. Marshall, the Minnesota Austism Center along with MN GOP Chairman Ron Carey said:

Doug Kelley, who represents Carey, Marshall and the center, said, “I believe my client billed appropriately under controlling law, and pursuant to the individual treatment plans that they sent to the Department of Human Services.

Kelley said he has been in talks with the U.S. attorney’s office and is hoping to reach a settlement. “There has not been a single hint of any criminal investigation,” he said.

Rachel Poulose hasn’t done anything towards investigating this case because it involves Republicans in high places within Minnesota politics. She’s the US Attorney who has been hand selected by US Attorney General Alberto Gonzalez and knee-deep in the current US Attorney investigation in Congresss. She’s running such a horrible disaster, her senior staffers have walked out on her and left her with a substitute nanny to sit on her and pay attention what’s going on in Minnesota.

Liberals love Poulose, mostly for the fact that she’s horribly inexperienced compared to her predicessor Tom Hefflefinger, and it’s loads of fun to make her look like an idiot…which she is, in my humble opinion.

The U.S. attorney’s office in Minnesota demonstrates the havoc that ensues when the Bush administration places politics over justice. Four top staffers to Rachel Paulose, the U.S. attorney in Minnesota, have voluntarily demoted themselves in protest of Paulose’s “highly dictatorial style” of managing. Paulose has also “earned a reputation for quoting Bible verses and dressing down underlings.”

Ron Carey has apparently, become fed up with Tostenson’s constant whining. Carey asked Tostenson to shut up about the matter until after the November elections, hoping no memos or rumors would leak to the public. But, after the elections, Carey let Tostenson send his complaints to the Party’s legal staff which resulted in the MN GOP cutting Tostenson’s salary by 40%. Perhaps Whistleblower Laws don’t apply in political arenas.Me

After the November election, he said, Carey gave him permission to send documents to the party attorney supporting his claims. Two weeks later Carey told Tostenson that they were cutting his pay by 40 percent, which Tostenson believed was retaliation.

Again, the emphasis is mine. You get your paycheck cut by 40%… do you think there’s retaliation involved here?!

It would appear that the stage being set for this upcoming GOP Primary Election in ’08 is going to be an absolute disaster blast. DFL, liberal and progressive bloggers in Minnesota should reap HUGE rewards in the horrors of the GOP with this campaign. Bush sized “Texas Trailer Park Trash” is showing up everywhere within United States society; care for a rotted piece of Fruit?
