Another tea partier ignorant of the Constitution

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…

Un-American assholes

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…

The crazy, dishonest approach to fixing the deficit

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…

Teabagging redneck who stomped annoying woman demands apology

How pronounced are our partisan divisions? We can’t even agree that stomping on a woman’s neck and giving her a concussion is wrong. Or is there a waiver when that woman is a liberal activist? The woman, 23-year-old Lauren Valle from Washington D.C., appeared to be following a specific set of instructions detailed on MoveOn.org’s website designed to attract media attention. Profitt claims he believed Paul was in danger from the woman and that he acted to protect the candidate, but the campaign has condemned Profitt’s actions. “I put my foot on her, and I did push her down at the very end,…

Willie Horton on steroids

The brown people are coming to rape your women and kill your children, warns wingnut Sharron Angle. The Willie Horton ad is tame in comparison. I’m surprised Angle didn’t advocate a “Second Amendment remedy” to combat those menacing Mexicans. “What is a little bit disconcerting and concerning is the inability for sporting goods stores to keep ammunition in stock,” she told the newspaper. “That tells me the nation is arming. What are they arming for if it isn’t that they are so distrustful of their government? They’re afraid they’ll have to fight for their liberty in more Second Amendment kinds of ways?” she…

Attack the media — literally

Most Tea Party candidates simply refuse to talk to the press, preferring reporters “ask the questions we want to answer, so that they report the news the way we want it reported.” That’s what “Fox and Friends” is for. Alaska senatorial candidate Joe Miller does them one better. The Alaska Senate race erupted Sunday night after security guards hired by Republican nominee Joe Miller put handcuffs on a reporter who had tried to ask Miller a question. The Teabaggers aren’t one for accountability. Sadly, that doesn’t seem to matter to voters.

Why does college football have higher standards than the GOP?

First, reporters discovered that Delaware GOP Senate nominee Christine O’Donnell did not attend Oxford University, despite her claims to the contrary. And now Claremont Graduate University says O’Donnell never attended its institution. … O’Donnell also claims to have attended Oxford University, but after that claim was reported by AOL News, the school said she hadn’t ever enrolled there. Greg Sargent of the Washington Post reported that O’Donnell’s Oxford connection appeared to be that she took a course conducted by an organization called the Phoenix Institute, which, as Sargent wrote, “merely rented space at Oxford.” O’Donnell claims she has no connection to the…

I’ll respect the tea party when they stop respecting idiots

When your movement is instrumental in securing nominations for the likes of Sharron Angle and, perhaps, Christine O’Donnell (the “o” is not for orgasm, read below), I know all I need to know. This from the conservative Weekly Standard: Citing “Mental Anguish,” Christine O’Donnell Sought $6.9 Million in Gender Discrimination Lawsuit Against Conservative Group …and falsely implied she was taking master’s degree classes at Princeton. O’Donnell also claims she’s been stalked by opponents. “They’re following me,” she told the Weekly Standard. “They follow me home at night. I make sure that I come back to the townhouse and then we have our…
