Redstate’s Jackie & Dunlap: It’s Just a Brand-Name, That’s All!

Dunlap explains to Jackie that on the issues between the Republicans and the Democrats, even the Kennedy’s and the Bush’s – they’re all just selling a brand-name.  They’re all just a bunch of bastards in the same club! Watch for the end when they each grab a bottle of Jack Daniels and suck on it like a kid hangig off a nanny-goat.

My thanks to Monkeyfister for keeping a sharp-eyed lookout!

Any Questions?!?

Flock of Seagulls: I RAN so far away!!

What’s in a Title? “Killing Spiders with My Shoe”

fructose_boostAttracting the attention of that half of the bloggosphere who’d rather read other people’s blogs than maintain one of their own, requires a little bit of skill.  Flies to sugar-water, bees to honey, if you will.  Step one is to come up with a decent-sounding title for the blog-entry by duping the Blog-Reader to actually pay attention to what you have to say.

Confused?  You might say:

“Fruit!  Oh Snap, Girlfriend!! …What the Hell are you talking about?!”

…And I would have to point to those Communists over at Red State who’s titled a blog entry with this piece:

DNC Chair and Obama lose two council seats in their backyard

Sounds ominous, no?! It’s like: “Uh oh… Who jumped “Team Obama”?!” …and you’re thinking the worst!

Phhh…. Sucker! We’re talking about Redstate, silly! These are “con-servatives”! These people have nothing left but hope (that they can get you to believe their bullshit)!

Who was it that “Obama and the DNC Chair” lost from their backyards?!? From the conservative Jim Geraghty over at National Review:

Boy, how long has it been since I’ve been able to report good news on an election night for Republicans? With results from 26 out of 26 precincts, and absentees included, Republican Frank Fannon and GOP-endorsed independent Alicia Hughes appear to have won seats on the Alexandria City Council. The Democrats will still control a majority of four out of six seats, but this is a couple rippes of red in a deep blue community in a purple state – the best news for local Republicans in a long time.

Wow! Really? This is the **BEST** news for local Republicans in a long time?!

The GOP has won two seats on the city council of Alexandria, Virginia and this is the best news for the Republican party in a long time?  This equals a blog title that says:

DNC Chair and Obama lose two council seats in their backyard?

WOW! How far as the GOP fallen?!

Moe Lane, author of the Redstate blog entry “hits a home-run and wins the pie-eating contest at the county fair” with the follow-up:

But the implications are bigger. Barack Obama won this county 72-27. Senator Mark Warner is from Alexandria. Democratic National Committee Chair Tim Kaine is the Governor of Virginia.

Barack Obama lost today. The Democratic National Committee lost today.

Oh snap!  Color me fuschia and watch me quiva..!

Did they “lose” a 25-year well established US Senator from Pennsylvania today?!  Did they “lose”  another major set-back in a run-off race in Minnesota?

It gets way better.

Mike DeVine, a proud member of Redstate leaves a comment that reads this title:

Is the NCNA listening? Obama is vulnerable now! Let’s

lead NOW from a position of strength rather than go searching for what we stand for on a wussie tour

The NCNA he references is the brand-new organization old-GOP goats have tried to cobble together and effort to re-brand the GOP into something coherent to the American public. Mike “Gamecock” DeVine is pulling for the “National Council for a New America“; a group of Republican clowns that met just last weekend at a pizza joint in Arlington, Virginia.

(Hint: Jeb Bush (R-FL), Eric Cantor (R-Who Cares?) and Mitt Romney (R-Gay Marriage) showed up for pepperoni-pie and then begged Sarah Palin (R-Moose Killer) to join after Boss Limbaugh (R-Pigboy) demanded it from them.)

Is Obama really “volnerable” now?!

Is it really “time to pounce”?!

Hoping to avoid that “Wussie-Tour”?!

It’s a train-wreck of a political party. When I was a child, I was responsible for weeding the garden. Pulling weeds from between the carrots, potatoes, the corn and the strawberry plants was my responsibility. Each subsequent summer season, I felt more and more sympathy for the invading weeds:

They’re just struggling along with the rest of us… Now where is my PB and J Sandwich?!

But that was when I was a child

It’s sad watching a national political party die, seriously. They had their fame – their glory. They had their “Big Hey Day!”. It’s bittersweet watching them fall-off their bicycles without their helmets.  For sixteen-odd years, this is the same political party was thrilled to jump in my face to remind me that their God, and Lord Jesus Christ hated me because I’m gay.  I didn’t support that Iraq War and they claimed that I was being “un-patriotic”.  I didn’t support Bush’s policies towards torture and I was “un-American”.

Today, it’s like having a shoe in your left hand and a can of Raid in your right and taking the time out seconds before you decide the demise of the ominous arachnid crawling on the cement block-wall of your unfinished basement…. The spider stops just for a moment, hiding behind a broom handle and the vaccuum cleaner – and you simply can’t decide how the insect’s life should end: The Trews: Paranoid Freak

Shoe? Raid?  They’re just strugglign along with the rest of us…  Chemicals or squish?!?

[WHACK!!]

Now where’s my PB and J Sandwich?!

Hey!  This is easy..!  I just need to work on my blog titles and I could be more popular than Redstate!!

Freepers React to Gay Marriage in Vermont (Hint: They’re Extra Patriotic!)

Joe.My.God did my homework for me.  He’s cherry-picked a long list of comments left on Free Republic who’s spun a thread about the news that the Vermont legislature overwhelmingly over-rode the (Republican) governor’s veto on gay marriage.

Here’s what these Patriotic Americans had to say:

Patriotic Republicans

“I await the volcanoes, the tsunamis, the hurricanes and hopefully, the destruction of Vt and its pacifist secular socialism by the Lord. I actually do want it to happen with good Americans being protected as we see in the OT, when God protects believers that do good and trust the Lord. Since VT doesn’t seem to believe in the Biblical God or His standards, perhaps a nice lesson in humility would be a nice taste of God’s wrath.”

You mean – like Lot and his wife who had to leave Sodom and Gomorrah? Like, when God bombed those Biblical “Twin Cities” with fire and brimstone? Oh wait, mass destruction of the country only happens in that Bible Belt. Hurricane Katrina, Rita, Hurricane Hugo, and Alberto – God only hates the Bible Belt states and this douche is crossing his fingers hoping it’ll happen in Vermont some time.
fruitfly21? width=

“Homosexuals like to target beautiful areas and states to infect them with their agenda to force the abhorrent lifestyle upon the unsuspecting, though often liberal-tending, population. It is going on all over the country.”

Yes…We’re looking for the “extra-pretty” areas of the country first. You’ve discovered our super-duper secret plan – because the Grand Tetons and Yosemite just isn’t gay enough!
fruitfly21? width=

“Now it is time for the animal-lovers to file a lawsuit to get recognition of marriage between humans and animals. Equal protection and all…”

Woah, buddy! If you’re going to start humping your own dog’s leg – we’re just not interested! m’Kay?!

fruitfly21? width=

“And I guarantee that kids in Jr High and younger who have this stuff pushed at them daily….as “love” and marriage, HAVE NOT A CLUE, what it takes to commit a homosexual act. If they are told the truth, they will naturally be repelled”

Bitter!! Party of one! Bitter!?!  Bitter Party of one?!

“I really would love to see millions of conservatives not republicans move out of their liberal states think about it they will lose money red state gets <strike>mroe</strike> more money we have the second amendment <strike>recognised</strike> recognized to people who go to church not laughed at we would increase the electoral college count too”

I would love to see millions of Republicans and conservatives move out of Minnesota too. I mean; “Honestly…We just can’t get rid of these Republicans fast enough!!”  Face it, there’s just not enough elderly conservative old Republicans  who’ve moved to Florida yet!  (Oh wait…Florida’s electoral votes went to Obama, too.  Nevermind!)

“they account of 5% of the population yet there is so much fact and numbers about them being sick , dying,disease, serial killers, child molesters etc we have to counter the Hollywood for two girls being together is sexy, it is not the lesbians are not Hollywood they are manly looking wearing strap ons. men who are doing it are poking in a hole where our waste comes out and then they suck it. disgusting and not cool. yes it is sick and visual but I found it is the only way for us normal people to understand how sick these people are”

Hrmmm… It’s the “gays” that are child molesters?! Really? Is that true?! How is it that every time a child molester is arrested, the guy isn’t wearing a feathered boa? I’ve never seen a child-molester wearing drag. I’ve seen plenty of wives who’s husband has been just arrested for child molestation  crying into their kitchen towels sobbing: “I just never knew!” But never seen a child-molester wearing leather suspenders, jackboots, a gay pride pin on his black t-shirt and a pair of handcuffs getting stuffed into the back-seat of a squad car.

American FlagIt just makes you take a deep breath of fresh air and swell up with pride, doesn’t it?

Now, let’s not let any of these extra-patriotic dumb-bells know that just yesterday, Washington DC voted unanimously to recognized same-sex marriage from any state in the union who allows it.  Currently, that list of states seems to grow.  From the Burlington (Vermont) Free Press:
Vermont, Massachusetts, and Iowa all allow same-sex marriage, while New Jersey, New Hampshire, and Rhode Island all recognize civil unions and Washington, Oregon, California, Hawai’i and Maine recognize “domestic partnerships”.  It’s funny, don’t you think?   The Associated Press, who made this map – would use orange, red and pink to show which states recognize their gay citizens’ relationships.

What does Jackie and Dunlap think about this topic?

Leave it to those two to speak truth to power…Frank Sinatra: Love and Marriage

Does anybody remember when Jerry Falwell compared gay marriage to slavery? How many years did that Moral “Majority” fat-cat run around screaming about God’s wrath towards homosexuality and the dangers of ruining the “holy sanctity of (heterosexual) marriage“?  Massachusetts has been allowing gay marriage for – six years now?  Is there still a danger of losing that “holy sanctity” in that state?   I’m not seeing “God’s Wrath” there!

Isn’t the true danger all about these religious bigots being pushed back into obscurity?

MRE: MICHELE BACHMAN DESTROYS THE GOP!!!

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!

Sincerely,

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!!

Sheeshe!!

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!!!

Fresh Fruit: The State of the GOP

(Liberal) Media these days looks like cotton candy to anybody votes Left and who’s keeping tabs on the GOP. They’re loosing their caging lists, political incumbents are loosing their respective races and in states where it was Easy GOP Country: Well, let’s just say: They’re now leaning into extremely tight races.

So, let’s take a tour around the salad bar and look at all of this delicious fresh fruit, shall we?!

North Carolina

This race I’ve paid close attention to mostly out of personal interest. I used to live in North Carolina (Raleigh and Greensboro) and have many friends there. My former husband is a native Tarheel and he and I regularly email each other about the news coming out of the state.

The incumbent, Republican Senator Elizabeth Dole, has struggled this entire election season against a Democratic State Senator Kay Hagen. Hagen, as it turns out, is a close friend of my former husband, so you can see why I’m passionate about this race. DailyKos has noted Elizabeth Dole is now spending her own money for that race.

Republican Sen. Elizabeth Dole says she is spending some of her own money on her first re-election bid, trying to offset millions of dollars in negative spending Democrats have used to make the race one of the closest in the country.

Dole and her campaign declined to detail how much she has pledged to her campaign, but the commitment came recently enough that it won’t appear in campaign finance reports due this week.

The DSCC have pushed some effective ads in North Carolina which have proven to be effective, even after the Dems though Hagen’s campaign had fallen into a very dead and a very boring uneventful summer.

Polls show she’s likely to lose her Senate seat to Democrat Kay Hagan, after doing little during a single six-year term to distinguish herself. (Even the two years she spent as head of the National Republican Senatorial Committee ended badly — she presided over the Democratic takeover in 2006.)

Aww… Poor Libby Dole. All she’ll have left to screw up is the American Red Cross. Or, was she asked to leave her seat from that organization too? I can’t remember. Speaking of blood; Salon has an article entitled:

Blood in the Water in North Carolina

Republican Sen. Liddy Dole may be a goner, and John McCain is in trouble in a state the GOP hasn’t lost since 1976. What happened?

Florida:

Although Governor Charlie Crist (R) gave Florida to John McCain during the primaries, he’s not interested in being around the candidate now.

Last week, after traveling with GOP running mate Sarah Palin around the state, Crist skipped a McCain football rally and instead went to Disney World. Crist hardly sounded enthusiastic when asked about his plans for helping McCain. “When I have time to help, I’ll try to do that.”

While keeping his options open regarding Palin’s future role in Republican politics, Crist appears ready to abandon McCain.

CQ finishes the article with this simple sentance:

Scaring Crist away could be McCain’s worst mistake of all.

Ouch + Ouch = Double Ouch!

Maybe McCain can get Sarah Silverman to do something to help him, instead of hurting him. Naaaaah.

The GOP Base:

They’re abandoning McCain because of his support of the $700 Billion bail-out. Bush and the GOP created a Catch-22 with this whopper of a spending problem. It was bad enough hearing Bush show up every three months demanded $30 Billion here and there for his Iraq War debacles. But when he showed up demanding $700 Billion to bail out their corporate cronies, it was the straw that broke the camels back. It created a Catch-22 for every fiscally conservative Republican in Congress. McCain bit the bait and supported what Bush wanted, of course. Now the GOP is pissed:

These Republicans declined to speak on the record because they did not want to face political repercussions for criticizing McCain.

“He’s alienated his base,” said one House Republican. “Maverick McCain missed his moment. He could have opposed this and created distance from Bush.”

Another Republican said supporting the bailout would trouble more than members of the Republican base.

“It’s not just his base,” said the lawmaker. “There’s a wide swath of opinion out there that this is not a good deal.”

A third Republican said before the bill cleared Congress: “McCain would do well to remember that Americans don’t like the (Treasury Secretary Henry) Paulson plan and Republicans and conservatives hate it.”

The topic du jour for the GOP isn’t about McCain’s attack strategy, it’s about a “come back strategy“.

…the (McCain) campaign should have sought to plant doubts about Obama’s associations with 1960s-era radical William Ayers and others months ago, rather than waiting until the campaign’s final weeks. Doing so now, they said, makes the 72-year-old McCain come off as angry, grouchy and desperate, playing into Democrats’ hands.

If you’re really in a playful mood, run on over to Crooks and Liars and check out who’ve they’ve got on tape. GOP politicians, all female – watch their heads explode on Larry King Live about Sarah Palin and the GOP. It’s hysterical.

A painful day in GOPville.

North Dakota:

In-Forum hired Minnesota State University of Moorehead to conduct a survey in North Dakota which showed Barack Obama now leading John McCain by two points. It’s a small lead granted, but deep in a Red State like North Dakota, it’s well worth bragging about.

The survey shows Obama squeaking past McCain, 45 percent to 43 percent, a lead that falls within the poll’s margin of error and therefore indicates a dead heat, according to political analysts.
Still up for grabs: undecided voters, comprising 12 percent.

Ohio Republican Steve Chabot has all but flipped the proverbial bird at McCain over his support of the bail-out. Republican Governors Mitt Romney (Mass) and Tommy Thompson (Wisc) both have a fair lot to gripe about the GOP and McCain’s campaign. Thompson goes on to tell NY Times reporter that he’s not happy with his party and he “doesn’t know anybody who is.”

Hey Maw!! I can smell those fried GOP politicans in kitchen from way out here! When do we eat?!

Redstate:

The conservatives favorite blogspot RedState has one of their own ditching his vote for McCain. One founder, Joshua Travino writes:

Finally, the vote for President of the United States: an academic exercise in California, where Barack Obama will surely win by a crushing margin. But good citizenship demands voting as if it matters. Do I believe in John McCain? Not as much as I used to. Do I believe in Sarah Palin? Despite my early enthusiasm for her, now not at all. Do I believe in the national Republican Party? Not in the slightest — even though I see no meaningful alternative to it. So, my choice for President in 2008, scrawled in my ballot as an act of futile protest, is Governor Bobby Jindal of Louisiana. If nothing else, I am confident this is the first of several votes I will cast for him in years to come.

Awww… Bitter much?!

Hosed:

I loved this piece out of the Kansas US Senate race with Jim Slattery:

Seeing a Republican urinating on the American people always leaves a bad-taste in my mouth. Oh wait: No, I’m definitely not into “water-sports”!

Hate-Mongers:

You know that thing from last Friday with McCain here in Minnesota? You know; he gets booed by the audience when he tells one man that there’s nothing to be afraid of Obama, and clarifies to an older woman that Obama is definitely NOT an Arab..?

Well, apparently – that attitude was short-lived. dKos has a photo of a McCain rally taken today. Apparently, if you say it – you’ll be rebuked. But posters are just fine.

The Jed Report, via dKos, has a video clip where McCain is confronted about these hate-mongers. McCain calmly listens and replies with: “I’ve heard the same thing from Obama’s rallies about me”.

Please! Please email me a link of a bunch of Obama fans who are screaming: “Kill McCain!”, “Kill the Cracker!!” “Traitor!!”

What a freakin’ Liar… As a Veteran myself, you’re supposed to hold some resemblance to the truth. McCain has become a patsy to the losers of “Everything Stupid Who’ve Enlisted in the Military

Please! Please email me a video where Obama fans are screaming “Kill McCain!” Please!!!

Oops… I just realized that the Bush Administration has probably read this blog entry… It has all of the qualifiers that puts me on the…ehem “Republican Black-List”…

<sigh> Dammit!!! I’ll see you when I’ve been released as a political prisoner of the American government…

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!
