Monkey Business

Paul Ryan Perpetuates Deception

     Joe Biden made a monkey of Paul Ryan at the Vice Presidential debate last night.  Calling Ryan on nearly all of his malarkey, Biden kept the boy genius on the defense, and at times speechless; seemingly in turmoil when questioned about Roe v. Wade, and other issues where his personal beliefs conflict with that of the Romney campaign’s newly stated ones.  But like a true Republican soldier, Ryan marched onward with the flag of deception flying high. The policy wonk was unable to articulate his campaign’s vision of voucherizing Medicare.  As Biden said, “The numbers don’t [didn't] add up.”  Ryan was pressed for specifics on foreign policy and, even though he had ample time, still managed to give none.  He continued the Romney campaign’s tactic of providing “low information” voters with no information.

     Something magical happened last night…  something strange, yet wonderful.  Something we are not used to seeing in today’s politics.  Something we may never see again in our lifetime, for its occurrences are few and far between.  The truth won.

Convention Bumps and Bruises

The Seeds of Discontent

“Republicans who want Mitt Romnay to win – who desperately want Barack Obama out of the race, had  better hope that people like Karl Rove and others that have influence in this campaign start going to the candidate and getting in his face and saying ‘we’re investing a lot of time, a lot of effort and a lot of money in you buddy and you better get your stuff together, and the next time you go on a national Sunday show, you’d better have some answers.  You’re not going to be able to coast into victory; you will coast into a 52 – 48 loss.'” – Joe Scarborough (Morning Joe).  Even devoted partisan,  Republican defender Mark Halperin stated, “The President has a meaningful lead and it’s not tied or within the margin of error.”

It seems reality has set in.  Republican party members are publicly (and Mitt Romney’s team privately), acknowledging the “bump” the DNC received from their convention and the lack of one for the Republicans.  Polls show Pres. Obama with 49% of the vote, and Mitt Romney with 44%.  Even the Republican skewing Rasmussen Poll shows:  Obama: 50%  Romney: 45%.

Uh-oh, better ramp up the voter suppression guys!

The Big Dick

Biggest dick of all.    Just a Little White Lie

MSNBC has reported that newly unclassified documents reveal both George Bush and Dick Cheney were briefed by the CIA the day before Cheney went on Meet the Press to link Mohammad Atta to Saddam Hussein:  http://leanforward.msnbc.msn.com/_news/2012/06/21/12345196-sharpton-new-declassified-document-undermines-cheneys-claim-of-iraqi-connection-to-911?lite .

Over 4,000 Americans killed and maimed, hundreds of thousands of innocent Iraqis killed or disfigured, $800 billion of US treasure spent  in the name of what… justice?  Oil? Freedom?  Democracy?  Or was it for the enrichment of he and his friends (lets not forget about Xe [Haliburton])?  Interesting how draft dodger Cheney  http://www.slate.com/articles/news_and_politics/chatterbox/2004/03/elizabeth_cheney_deferment_baby.html  had no problem with sending thousands of our children to die by lying us into a war, but didn’t want to personally fight for the country he claims to love.

What a Bush!

Whistleblower Gets Death Threat at Work

According to New York Times, Jack Palmer, an employee at the outsourcing company Infosys, has been getting harassed and even had a death threat letter placed in his office ever since he came forth to authorities regarding shady practices at his company.  I guess the “No Snitch” policy works in the corporate world much like it does on the streets.

Exercise in Futility

  Resistance is Futile

The Borg-like Mitt Romney suffered incredible primary losses in the southern states of Mississippi and Alabama last night.  Once again he showed he cannot win in the South.  Lucky for Mitt he will be running agin a negro Nazi, socialistic communist, Keynesian Marxist Muslim who hates white people and wants to take their guns away.

The longer the Republican primary race goes on, the more it seems that Mitt the Inevitable may become Mitt the Fortuitous (if he is allowed the nomination).  The Republican party is going to have to pull a rabbit out of the proverbial bag of dirty tricks if they want their man in.  Can’t wait for the show.

President Obama on the other hand?  Well, what will the Republican agenda be when he wins in November?  To make sure he doesn’ t win a third term?  Will they be able to overcome their racist tendencies and work with him to actually help the American people?  Or, will we give President Obama what he needs – overwhelming majorities in both the House and Senate – to do the things he knows that we know that he knows we want him to do?

Exxon Effoff

  Republicans Full of Gas

     By now we all know that the United States consumes approx. 20% of the world’s oil while our domestic production capacity sits at 2%.  We could not drill enough oil here in America to supply our own addicted demand, much less influence world oil prices.  Yet Republican presidential hopefuls continue to blame President Obama for the spike in prices at the tank.  Newt Gingrich even goes so far as to say,  if he’s elected President, gas prices will be $2.50/gallon.  Remember when John McCain said he knew where Osama Bin Laden was?  All we had to do was elect him President and he would tell us.  Well we all know where Osama is now don’t we?

     Interesting interview yesterday.  Matt Lauer of the Today Show asked about the increase in gasoline prices.  Rex Tillerson, Chairman and CEO of Exxon (the world’s largest oil company) stated: “What drove these prices up is entirely the crude oil price.  Supply and demand is fine.  So what’s led to this most recent run-up?  Obviously concerns about the rhetoric over the closing of the Strait of Hormuz and the conflicts with Iran.”  What?  Did he just say that?  Yes, yes he did.  The 1%er confirmed that Wall  St. speculators are responsible for the drastic and sudden increases in gas prices.  Not President Obama.  So sorry Republicans, I guess it’s back to the drawing board!

p.s.  – Drill baby drill!

Limbaugh Humbug

As advertisers flee and radio stations go silent, one must ask:  

What’s the Rush?

He’s been spewing his particular brand of crap for decades – why now? Suddenly you can’t call someone a slut and a prostitute? What’s this country coming to?  There used to be a time when a half-assed apology was good enough! Ahhh the good old days … when men were men and women were quiet.

Unfortunately for us, Ronald Reagan unleashed this voice of unreason when he repealed The Fairness Doctrine in 1987. The incurious have been suffering ever since, and in turn the rest of us.  Unfortunately for Rush, while he stood oblivious (perhaps the Oxycontin), the sands of time have shifted right under his beleaguered feet. Could this be the end of the road for the fat bastard?  Will he become a political martyr  for the Republican party, or will he hang on to continue to regurgitate the vile, divisive, racist, sexist, hypocritical vitriol of his party?  Stay tuned…

I Love Vagina -or- You say Virginia…

He wants to Get to Know You...

     Vagina Rules!

     Rule #1:  Women vote dumb-ass.

     Possibly the most wonderful creation God has ever made, I love it.  Do you? Why do Republicans hate vagina?  I would argue their apparent war on women proves it right?  Is it jealously? Envy?  Payback for past denial?  Something Freudian perhaps?

    The latest:  Virginia Governor Bob McDonnell (R)  says he will sign into law a bill that would require a forced vaginal probe and a waiting period before any abortion.  This would be done regardless of patient or doctor consent.  Governor “get to know you” McDonnell is rumored to be high – on Mitt Romney’s list of possible vice presidential running mates.  Maybe he is just trying to endear himself to women voters?

     Question: Why are there any women in the Republican party? Can someone please explain it to me?  This example is just the latest in a long line of anti-woman policies the power-drunk Republican Party has unleashed.  For a party that claims to want government out of our lives, they keep finding creative ways to be involved in the most intimate parts of it.  The right of a woman to her self-determination is just that – hers.  Dumb-ass.
