Lee Fisher really has simply become a Republican.? He’s parroting Republican lines, using Republican tactics, getting Republican Pavlovian dogs in the MSM to parrot them, and doing it so successfully, he’s got Republicans themselves repeating them….repeatedly.

You know what, Lee?? You’re gonna lose this primary by a lot more than I thought.? People have been asking me lately, Tim, what are you gonna do if Lee Fisher wins?? My honest answer is that I won’t have that problem.

The leaders of the Republican Party said no yet again. This time to a joint agreement from the leaders of the Democratic Party, which:

…called for ?elected officials of both parties to set an example of the civility we want to see in our citizenry.?

?We also call on all Americans to respect differences of opinion, to refrain from inappropriate forms of intimidation, to reject violence and vandalism, and to scale back rhetoric that might reasonably be misinterpreted by those prone to such behavior.”

But they’re not fanning any flames of violence, intimidation, hatred, or anger. No! No way!

Nice Work If You Can Get It!

On December 22, 2009 By

Let’s see.? Get paid over $200k a year to head up a major political party and have (or take) time to go around personally enriching yourself giving speeches?

Nice work if you can get it!

Two things of note:

1.? Shouldn’t past GOP chairman be cheering this relative to their free market principles?? Ahoy!

2.? No more railing against “elites” for Steele.? Mr. 15k speeches and first class only airfare.

3.? I thought speeches were bad?

The Republican National Committee?s health insurance plan covers elective abortion ? a procedure the party?s own platform calls ?a fundamental assault on innocent human life.?

According to several Cigna employees, the insurer offers its customers the opportunity to opt out of abortion coverage ? and the RNC did not choose to opt out.

Spokespeeps say they are going to fix it. They were unaware. Blah blah blah. A policy that has been in place since 1991 was not scrutinized before? These are the people who want to win leadership in this country? Sheer incompetence. Maybe the RNC just […]

The Hill reports that Republican National Committee Chairman Michael Steele was on a radio show and asked about the GOP could reach out to African-American voters.? And here’s what transpired:

MARTIN: But your candidates got to talk to them. One of the criticisms I’ve always had is Republicans — white Republicans — have been scared of black folks.
STEELE: You’re absolutely right. I mean I’ve been in the room and they’ve been scared of me. I’m like, “I’m on your side” and so I can imagine going out there and talking to someone like you, you […]

LOL. So the narrative is now set in like a good hillbilly heroin buzz. Rush calls out Steele. Steele slams Rush. Rush smacks Steele in show. Steele apologizes:

?My intent was not to go after Rush ? I have enormous respect for Rush Limbaugh,? Steele said in a telephone interview. ?I was maybe a little bit inarticulate. ? There was no attempt on my part to diminish his voice or his leadership.?


RNC Chairman neutered.

Democrat narrative in full effect.

Rightwing gassbag and drug addict Rush Limbaugh leads the modern day Republican Party.

That was […]

So this is the way the RNC Chairman Michael Steele is going to rebrand the Republican Paryt? By saying MY BAD? LOL

“Tonight, we tell America: we know the past, we know we did wrong. My bad,” said Steele. “But we go forward in appreciation of the values that brought us to this point.”

“My bad” may be hip and all, but…um…

RNC Shopping Spree!

On October 21, 2008 By

Looks like the RNC had to dress ’em all up to parade them out at their convention:

The Republican National Committee appears to have spent more than $150,000 to clothe and accessorize vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin and her family since her surprise pick by John McCain in late August.

According to financial disclosure records, the accessorizing began in early September and included bills from Saks Fifth Avenue in St. Louis and New York for a combined $49,425.74.

The records also document a couple of big-time shopping trips to Neiman Marcus in Minneapolis, including one $75,062.63 spree in early September.

Can’t make this stuff up. Despite McCain’s calls to tone thing down, the corporate lobbyists and GOPers still had the time to get liquored up, don pin boas, and take in a little “hookers & blow”:

The Greening of the Convention

On August 18, 2008 By

The national convention is coming up and there is a race to make it as green as possible. Imagine hybrid electric trucks delivering soft drinks, recycling centers throughout the facility, biodegradable discount cards, special power strips to cut energy consumption, solar and wind power usage to power the event.

Sounds like a bunch of hippie Buddhists, right?

Doh! It’s the RNC! If there were ever any doubts that we won the environmental movement, this should erase them.
