From the Verbatim-o-Tron 9000: Republicans and their words

June 18, 2012


Here are today’s offerings of word-for-word, in-context live quotes from Republicans around the country, brought to you by A Critical Aye’s Verbatim-o-Tron 9000 … Indiana GOP Senate candidate Richard Mourdock: “Employers should not have to cover cancer in their insurance plans if they don’t want to. Why should my taxes go to someone who was […]

The numbers don’t lie, Ms. Bachmann

December 30, 2011


Michele Bachmann missed 2,375 (53.02%) of 4,479 Congressio­nal roll call votes since Jan 4, 2007. She missed 58.7% of votes in Q3-2011 (145 out of 247) and missed NINETY ONE POINT THREE PERCENT of votes in Q4-2011 (190 out of 208). And yet, somehow, she still draws every penny of Congressio­nal salary and perks, plus […]

My first 5 days as U.S. President

September 12, 2011


As your next President of the United States, before the end of my first five days in office, I will: Eliminate all incentives for outsourcing jobs & require the return a minimum of 66% of all jobs that have already been outsourced. Permanently eliminate the $106,800 cap on the Social Security tax. Permanently eliminate the […]

Rick Perry: “Truth” is all in how you present it

September 1, 2011


In response to an attack ad from a SuperPAC that supports Michele Bachmann, the communications director for teabagger favorite and professional kewpie doll Rick Perry said “Gov.  Rick Perry cut taxes, signed six balanced budgets, takes a hard line on spending, and led Texas to become America’s top job-creati­ng state.” All of these statements are […]

Bachmann: “I’m not a doctor, I just tell people I am.”

August 18, 2011


It seems that Michele Bachmann doesn’t feel that the sobriquet “Senator” or “Congresswoman” is sufficient to convey just how impressive a person she wants you to think she is.  Apparently, according to printed documents and video news footage from the 1990s and early 2000s, Bachmann wants to be called “doctor” … even though she isn’t […]

Bachmann’s “faith advisor” was arrested for Terrorism in 2006

August 18, 2011


I can’t wait to see how Michele Bachmann will spin the fact that one of her senior campaign staff members, Peter Waldron, was arrested for terrorist activities in Uganda in 2006. The Atlantic’s Garance Franke-Ruta reports that Waldron was “arrested in possession of large quantities of assault rifles and ammunition, just days before Uganda’s first […]

GOP Debate: The highs, the lows, and the winner

August 11, 2011


Here’s my take on tonight’s … cough cough … “debate.” Fox needed to show Michele Bachmann trying to walk off-stage with no @ss since she LITERALLY lied it off during the entire “performan­ce.” To Romney: Every answer cannot begin with “Barack Obama …” To Gingrich: Too little, too late. Debating isn’t your campaign’s problem. YOU […]

The Summer 2011 Politics Memorial Haiku

July 20, 2011


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. […]

Michele Bachmann: An inspiration to morons and imbeciles everywhere

June 27, 2011


Michele Bachmann wants voters to know that she’s not your ordinary politician. In fact, she wants you to know that she channels the spirit of a mass murderer. During her “formal” announcement speech today that she’s seeking the presidency (I guess the five times that she’s announced since the New Hampshire debate last week have […]
