Republicans: “Abortion? Because of rape? That’s a lotta hooey.”

August 27, 2012

Occasionally, I’m accused by some commenters of “skewing things against Republicans,” or that I’m a “shill for Obama.” So, today, to underscore how wrong those assessments are, and to hopefully drive home the point that my “attacks” against Republicans are neither unwarranted nor untrue, I’m simply going to post some verbatim quotes by Republicans and […]

GOP spending hypocrisy revealed; teabaggers among worst offenders

November 7, 2011

For a group of people who paraded around in ridiculous costumes, making outlandish claims and swearing before god (and then, country) that they – personally – were going to put an end to reckless pork-barrel spending in Washington, there sure are a lot of teabaggers with deer-in-the-headlights glaze over their eyes as the 2011 Congressional […]

Cain’s 9-9-9 plan is upside down

October 11, 2011

Herman Cain’s 9-9-9 tax plan sounds really simple. The problem is, you’d have to be simple to think this plan is sound.  You’d have to be outright retarded to think it’s a good idea. Despite numerous requests, the Cain campaign refuses to release the nuts-and-bolts details of his plan, but according to his website, it’s […]

While Cantor backstabs, and Boehner tries not to cry, the nation crumbles. McConnell stands firm; won’t allow re-election, no matter the cost. Protecting the rich and victimizing the poor is GOP’s plan. Palin stays stupid, blaming “lamestream media” for her word-salad. Tax cuts for the rich must be preserved at all costs, but slash Medicare. […]

As a blogger/reporter/thinking individual, I love it when I don’t have to really come up with any pithy, sarcastic or salient points on my own to prove an argument. In this case, regarding the perpetual pissing contest about the debt ceiling going on in Washington between “Our way or no way because all we care […]

Cantor’s devotion to Israel overshadows his duty to Joplin and America

May 26, 2011

Eric Cantor needs to make up his mind about which country he belongs to, and more importantly, which country he represents. Cantor not only demands that Congress unilaterally approve the continued free gift of $10 Billion annually to Israel, he wants to INCREASE IT. Note to Congressman Scumbag: That $10 Billion IS NOT FUNDED. If […]

Cantor balks at tornado relief; tells Missouri “Them’s the breaks”

The No. 2 House Republican said that if Congress doles out additional money to assist in the aftermath of natural disasters across the country, the spending has to be offset by cuts in other domestic spending. House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.) — the living embodiment of the term “number two” — said “if there […]
