Ruh roh. Looks like ACORN may be getting $100 from my wingnut friend Joe C. We made a wager (I don’t forget these things – someone still owes me a bottle of bourbon from the 2008 Presidential…cough…Keeler…cough). The wager came after I made fun of those on the right getting lathered up by an article taking comments out of context to indicate (they thought) that Obama was leaving open the option of not running for re-election.
Joe C was very sure of it and even put $100 on it. Given to our favorite charity. I guess Joe […]Full Story... →
I was shocked to find this claim by Republican John Kasich in a recent article at CNN:
“I think I was in the Tea Party before there was a Tea Party.”
Yes. You read that right. John Kasich invented the Tea Party. Not just the recent tea party phenomenon. You know, the mouth breathing, knuckle dragging wingnut sychophant party that descended upon us this summer. No. John Kasich invented THE “Tea Party?”. The original one.
I was very doubtful until I found this archival footage of the actual Boston Tea Party:
It is tough to tell at […]Full Story... →
After reading my live blog of the Kasich-PalinTaylor press conference today where I noticed ads by employers looking to hire Ohioans popped up every time one of them said jobs, a fan of the site sent me this even better screen capture:
I bet Ohio GOP Chairman Kevin DeWine clicked it to see if it applies to political marriages.Full Story... →
I posted earlier about a call from Tom Coburn to pray that someone (Senator Byrd ostensibly) would not be able to make the health care reform vote in order to secure it’s defeat.? C-SPAN catches some hilarity relating to this incident that is sublime.? Most likely a hoax, but a damned good one.? If it turns out not to be a hoax it would be some of the funniest stuff I’ve seen on video since Naugle took a golf club to a bobblehead.Full Story... →
Just a fantastic 6 minutes and 5 seconds of Rachel Maddow (not Maddox) goodness. You will, if you are like me, enjoy every second of it.? If you are not like me and you are a trolling wingnut, then you will cringe in horror.? Yes, I’m talking to you you #tcot bandit you!
EPIC.Full Story... →
Must be Palin week. She coming to town or something?Full Story... →
Bringing this up from comments because it seriously deserves it’s very own post.? Honestly the funniest thing I’ve seen in a while relative to the teabagger crowd.
On November 14 “Robert Erickson” was introduced to the Minnesota Tea Party Against Amnesty as a Minneapolis resident concerned about illegal immigration. Sometimes the devil is in the details, as the supporters of the anti-immigrant Minnesotans Seeking Immigration Reform (MINN-SIR) slowly learn.? On the other hand, some of them never quite figured out that “Robert” wasn’t on their side:
Subtle, his mention of “European Immigrants”. Nope. Teabaggers aren’t all too bright, are […]Full Story... →
Michele Bachmann’s recent attempt to stoke the tea party embers into a raging fire of conservative dumbassery appears to have failed quite miserably. Reports say there were about 10,000 at the rally. Sean Hannity of Faux News and Bachmann try to stretch that to 20-45,000. Jon Stewart…eh…not ready to let them get away with it.
