My new crusade (by activist I mean the people seen below). Activists with rational, selfless aims are excluded; activists who employ human microphones are not.
Bocephus, fired as the Monday Night Football balladeer after comparing Obama to Hilter, plays the martyr.
“After reading hundreds of e-mails, I have made MY decision,” he wrote. “By pulling my opening Oct 3rd, You (ESPN) stepped on the Toes of *The First Amendment Freedom of Speech, so therefore Me, My Song, and All My Rowdy Friends are OUT OF HERE. It’s been a great run.”
*Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
Last I checked, ESPN didn’t pass a law prohibiting the playing of Hank’s song.
“Compromise is what’s led us to the mess we’re in right now. We can’t compromise our way out of this,” U.S. Rep. Tom Graves, R-Ranger, said in a Wednesday morning C-SPAN defense of his decision to oppose the Boehner plan.
And only I know the way out. Sounds like a dictatorial mindset to me.
This tweet was sent by a tea partier to Rep. Phil Gingrey after the Gang of Six plan was unveiled:
PLEASE run against Saxby Chambliss! Pragmatism is killing the Republic!
The HEAD of Tea Party Nation is a conspiratorial jackass. That’s being polite.
Obama is taking credit for this. He did give the order. Did he really have a choice? If word leaked out that he had solid intelligence on where Bin Laden was and did not act, it would have killed any chance he had at reelection. Of course, he made his announcement right in the middle of Donald Trump’s “Celebrity Apprentice” show. Of course, that was just a coincidence.
And in case you wondered what a teabagger would have done with bin Laden’s corpse …
Osama’s body should have not been immediately buried. We should have told everyone that the body was wrapped in pig fat before burial. …
It is not just the visceral insult. It is sending a message. Contrary to what the politically correct say, Osama does represent the mainstream of Islam. By defiling the body, we say that you are not getting your 72 virgins.
Driving into the office I heard some screeching Yankee named Andrew Wilkow whine that, when Saddam was captured, few cheered because Bush was president. That’s blatantly untrue. Wilkow also claimed there would be muted celebration had bin Laden’s death been engineered by W. Sorry, Andrew, most Americans aren’t as hyper-partisan as you. Wilkow also said last night’s impromptu rally outside of the White House was engineered by the Democratic Party.
The irrational right’s bubble grows more delusional and classless by the day. Looks as if they’ve reached a new low.
For the record, THEY are the ones injecting politics into what should be a nonpartisan day. Calling buffoons on their buffoonery is perfectly reasonable, and necessary. That’s what you do with un-American assholes.
Edina Monsoon’s speech would be a hit with tea partiers. Hell, I sort of like it.
Courtesy of the Democrats’ secret weapon, tea party queen Michele Bachmann:
“When you add it all up — I’m a former federal tax lawyer — when you add up the tax burden on today’s kids — and I believe this is a low estimate — they are looking at in their peak years, at having 70 percent of their income to pay their tax bill.”
That’s a claim that Bachmann made at CPAC earlier this month when she claimed an even higher number — 75 percent, and according to the Washington Post, it simply isn’t true.
“The bottom line, when you ‘get out your calculator’ and add all this up: total taxes of about 25 percent, rather than the 75 percent in Bachmann’s telling,” wrote the Washington Post, which used tax experts to assist in its calculations of federal, state and local taxes.
As for fixing the deficit …
“We need to simply tell people the facts, like Glenn Beck, with that chalkboard, that man can explain anything. I think if we give Glenn Beck the numbers, he can solve this.”
Her presidential campaign (I’m betting she runs) will be a frightening train wreck.
