As John Rocker goes (not to mention Gary Busey), so goes the nation:
“I have always loved Newt Gingrich. He is an absolute genius; just a marksman in historical value of pretty much anything you want to discuss,” Rocker told Mike Silva on 1240 AM WGBB on Sunday. ”He’s got obviously the intelligence, he’s got the experience. I don’t necessarily like he’s the lifetime politician type. I would just as soon see us go back to a Herman Cain, someone who’s been in the citizen form, if you will, for the better part of his adult life. But I have always liked Gingrich; I would like to see him get the nomination.”
A bold statement, but the evidence is overwhelming.
“No greater example of it than this administration sending millions of dollars into the solar industry, and we lost that money,” Perry began. “I want to say it was over $500 million that went to the country Solynda.”
I’m surprised Perry didn’t point out how Solynda is governed by a man in drag, thus supporting his claim that Barack Obama has declared war on traditional values.
Cut, Cap and Balance also would have raised the debt ceiling, which is why Broun opposed it, his spokeswoman Meredith Griffanti said.
“He’s actually not going to vote for any bill that raises the debt ceiling,” she
Broun, in fact, introduced legislation to lower the debt ceiling.
Fox News host Eric Bolling pulled a Rudy Giuliani on Wednesday, asserting that there were no terrorist attacks on “American soil” during President Bush’s term in office.
More proof that Bolling is a moron:
John Rocker, a titanic asshole without peer, is writing his biography (self-published).
Pimping his upcoming tome in Atlanta magazine, Rocker says he rarely speaks with reporters, adding, “I’ve sworn off doing print interviews.” Jeff Schultz quips, “In Rocker’s world, I guess this means a magazine doesn’t qualify as print.”
Like most blowhards, it appears Rocker is still playing the victim. He is responsible for one of the most objectionable quotes ever, and it’s not the one you think.
“I’ve taken a lot of crap from a lot of people,” the left-handed relief pitcher told ESPN.com in 2005. “Probably more than anybody in the history of the sport. … I know Hank [Aaron] and Jackie [Robinson] took a good deal of crap, but I guarantee it wasn’t for six years. I just keep thinking: How much am I supposed to take?”

Visiting Iowa for a movie premiere, Nevada Republican Sharron Angle wouldn’t rule out a run for president.“I’ll just say I have lots of options for the future, and I’m investigating all my options,” Angle said Wednesday when asked whether she is considering a bid for the White House, the Des Moines Register reported.
I dare you to watch this and tell me with a straight face she’s not a moron. Greta Van Scientologist, meanwhile, is her usual creepy self.
John Rocker defends himself
He didn’t deny hurling a few Jewish-related epithets at Shapiro. “I may have,” he said. But he said it was just Shapiro. “You can’t condemn a whole race of people. I don’t know why Jew is a bad word.”
Seems obnoxious racist John Rocker hasn’t mellowed.
The former Brave was thrown out of the W Hotel in Buckhead Thursday night after spewing racial epithets at a Jewish radio personality.
These images were lifted from his official site:
The head of a New Mexico GOP woman’s group recently wrote a letter to her local paper listing 16 reasons why she’s a Republican. Highlights:
*I believe Muslims are our enemies.
*I believe war is a fact of life and we should always win.
*I believe in personal responsibility. That includes spanking your children.
*I believe there is a moderate and a socialist in this election. I agree with a two-party system, but Obama isn’t a messiah or a democrat.
*He’s a Muslim socialist.
A bloody ideological showdown looms within the GOP (after all, “war is a fact of life”), and right now I’d bet on the fundamentalists.
That might not be such a bad thing, as I’ll outline in a forthcoming post.
Can’t decide what’s more offensive about this clip — the McCain flak’s “warnings” to Thursday’s debate moderator, Gwen Ifill, or the naked bias of Fox anchor Steve Doocy, by far the biggest doofus on cable TV. And that includes CNN’s Rick Sanchez.
The congressman who co-sponsored a bill requiring the display of the Ten Commandments — only three of which he could name during a subsequent TV interview — has reinserted foot in mouth.
Georgia Republican Rep. Lynn Westmoreland used the racially-tinged term “uppity” to describe Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama Thursday. …
“Just from what little I’ve seen of her and Mr. Obama, Sen. Obama, they’re a member of an elitist-class individual that thinks that they’re uppity,” Westmoreland said.
Asked to clarify that he used the word “uppity,” Westmoreland said, “Uppity, yeah.”
Facing the seemingly impossible task of insulting the intelligence of American voters, a South Carolina Republican boldly proclaims, “Yes I Can.” And you thought the GOP was inept.
Obama should welcome these scurrilous attacks (cleverly satirized, as you may recall, by The New Yorker). Stop with the pained laments. His opponents are the desperate ones. Expose their slanderous fear-mongering. Mock them. It’s justified, and Obama only stands to benefit.
