Into The Lion's Den

Today I watched as President Obama addressed top House GOP leaders in a Maryland hotel ballroom. He was there to extend his hand and asked the Republicans to to step back from their lockstep partisan tactics. At the end of the speech Obama proceeded to engage the Republicans in a, 140 against 1, almost 2 hour, no teleprompter, unscripted, Q&A. In a stroke of genius Obama had asked the Republicans, the previous night, if they would allow the camera to roll while their back and forth took place. The Republicans agreed to the request... Big mistake! Obama fielded their questions (partisan talking points) and one by one dismantled them like a skilled surgeon. It was a thing of beauty. After the meeting unnamed GOP aids said, off the record, that allowing cameras into the room was a "mistake" because Obama came off so well. I couldn't agree with that unnamed Republican aid more!

Here are a few video clips from different sites...

Lt. Gov. Andre Bauer Is A Bat Sh*t Crazy Racist

Republican Lt. Gov. Andre Bauer of South Carolina wants to help hungry poor children by starving them so they cant re-produce. No, I didn't mistype that or misunderstand what the Lt. Gov. said, it's just that what he said was really that bat-sh*t crazy. Listen to remarks he made about people who get government aid and judge for yourselves...

"My grandmother was not a highly educated woman, but she told me as a small child to quit feeding stray animals. You know why? Because they breed. "You're facilitating the problem if you give an animal or a person ample food supply. They will reproduce, especially ones that don't think too much further than that."

So Andre, what do you have to say for yourself as criticism builds about your insanely insensitive remarks...

Bauer says the 'stray animals' remark might have been ill-chosen" and that "I do not care about being politically correct," he declared. "I care about being honest."

Honesty is alway the best policy Andre... That way we get to see what a bat-sh*t crazy racist you are.

Senator Jim DeMint... You Lie!

Sometimes I marvel at the ease and sheer effortlessness with which politicians lie. Watch here as Senator Jim DeMint is played a tape of himself saying of the President and health care reform,“ If we’re able to stop Obama on this it will be his Waterloo. It will break him.”. After the recording finishes the programs host asks if DeMint thinks this was a proper thing to say and if he thought that was how Americans wanted him to act. DeMint without a pause says “I did not want this to be the president’s Waterloo....". WTF!?!?! He just played you the tape of you saying it and if he had been ready for your lie he could have cued up the tape of you praising yourself for uttering the comment just last week! Stunning!

Why Am I Not Surprised?

As I was watching the "Hope for Haiti Now" benefit concert last night two things struck me. One was that it was on every channel I switched to. It turns out that the Special was broadcast on over 60 networks that had preempted their regular shows. The other thing that struck me was this.... The only network not to televise the concert was.... Wait for it... Fox News! They chose to go with the usual line up of O'reiley and Hannity. I guess that Fox really knows their demographic... Uncaring, self absorbed, thoughtless, Xenophobic and racist.

Who Would Jesus Kill?

Here's the scoop. A company by the name of Trijicon has seen fit to inscribe the guns sites it supplies to the US military with coded Biblical references.

Trijicon has $660 million multi-year contract to provide up to 800,000 sights to the US military.

Over 300,000 of the god-guns are currently fielded, 220,000 by the marines and around 100,000 by the army.

You know this is a serious misstep when even General David Petraeus, chief of the US Central Command, calls the inscriptions "disturbing".

The problem with having religious quotes inscribed the firearms is that it breaks a US military rule that strictly prohibits "proselytizing of any religion, faith or practice".

Trijicon has relented to widespread criticism and has provided kits to remove the inscriptions from the sights.

Someone should have known something was a little off since the firm vows on its website to follow "biblical standards" it says make America great. Y'know, killing the way the lord would have wanted!

Say... It's So Joe!

Here's a quick thought. It's now a fact that Senate Democrats only have 59 votes and no longer have to walk a tightrope to maintain the fillibuster proof 60. Belive it or not there is one positive that has come from this disadvantage. Joe Lieberman is expendable! It's nice to know that they don't have to placate to Senator Droopy any more.

Scott Takes Kennedy's Senate Seat... Thanks Massachusetts

Congratulations on your nude... Ummm, I mean new Senator! Enjoy!

Ted Kennedy is rolling over in his grave as we watch Republican Scott Brown take his Massachusetts senate seat that he held for nearly half a century. With Scott's win Health care reform, which was Senator Kennedy's passion, just became a lot harder to pass. Why... Because in the Senate the Democrats now only have 59 seats instead of the 60 seat filibuster proof majority. Take this in conjunction with the fact that Scott practically made opposing the Heath Care Reform bill his central campaign issue.

To make things even worse this loss, in what was considered a Democratic stronghold, comes after President Obama personally rushed to Massachusetts to stump for the once-favored Democrat Martha Coakley.

Many are blaming Coakly and her team for the loss claiming they took the election for granted and ran an uninspired campaign. Rightly or wrongly, to many in Massachusetts, it appeared that Coakly simply refused to put in the hard work required to gain their confidence as well as their vote.

What I find most disconcerting is that Scott, whom is almost universally considered unqualified as well as being Kennedy's polar opposite, will be finishing the great lion of the Senates unexpired term. Sad.

If There Was A Hell I'd Wish Pat Robertson There...

Please someone tell me how anybody can take this lunatic seriously anymore! The earthquake in Haiti is a tragedy on such an mind-boggling scale and this is what Robertson's diseased brain comes up with!?!?!

Robertson: "They (Haiti) were under the heel of the French... they got together and swore a pact to the devil. They said, we will serve you if you'll get us free from the French. True story... "ever since, they have been cursed by one thing after the other"

Unlike Limbaugh who is filled with hate this man if in the grip of insanity. For Robertson and those who follow him we should feel pity and sadness. They are quite literally lost.

Just a thought... If it was the wish of "God" to destroy Haiti for making a pact with "Satan" isn't the fact that Robertson's collection of donations to help Haiti going against "God's" will?

How Low Can Limbaugh Go?

As many as one hundred thousand people may have died in the earthquakes in Haiti. I wonder what kind of a soul-less scumbag would try to make political hay out of it...... Oh, that didn't take long.

Limbaugh: Obama will use Haiti to boost credibility with "light-skinned and dark-skinned black community in this country"

I guess Limbaugh didn't realize that Obamas cred with that part of our country was pretty tight. It's his relationship with fat racist radio commentators that he is having troubles with.

Rudy Giuliani Must Have Alzheimers Or He Is A Lying Douche-Bag!

On ABC News Good Morning America Rudy Giuliani told an inconceivable whopper of a lie. While discussing the underwear bomber, Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, Giuliani claimed that there were no terror attacks on U.S. soil under George Bush's watch. Really Rudy!?!?!?! Freakin' really!!!!!!! Here are Rudy's inane ramblings:

GIULIANI: What he [Obama] should be doing is following the right things that Bush did -- one of the right things he did was treat this as a war on terror. We had no domestic attacks under Bush. We've had one under Obama.'

OK.... Let list them for Rudy, shall we.

• Surely he must remember the September 11th attacks... he practically ran for President with that being his only qualification!

• Hey Rudy, how about the 2001 shoe bomber Richard Reid. Ring any bells?

• Did you sleep through the 2001 anthrax attacks that killed 5 people that were characterized by John Ashcroft as "a terrorist act,"?

• Were you getting a lobotomy while the 2002 when Hesham Mohamed Hadayet opened fire at an El Al Airlines ticket counter at Los Angeles International Airport killing two people?

• Did the 2002 DC-area sniper shooter John Allen Muhammad conveniently slip your mind?

• How about those 2006 SUV attack at the University of North Carolina when Mohammed Reza Taheri-azar drove an SUV into an area of campus, striking nine pedestrians?

Giuliani's Bull s**t didn't stop there. He went on Larry King the next day and claimed that The shoe bomber incident happened before the September 11th attacks when in fact it took place three months after! Boy has lost his mind!

When asked for a comment about his remarks a Giuliani spokesman says that he was "clearly talking post-9/11 with regards to Islamic terrorist attacks on our soil."

Freaking whacko!

Obama Appoints Transgender Woman To Commerce Post

Ya' wanna know what I love. I love when something rubs the religious right and the conservatives the wrong way. I especially love it when it has something to do with someone's sexuality because it just seems to make them lose their minds. These people are so uptight and sexually repressed it just seems to make their heads explode. It's like watching a cartoon where the character gets so mad that his face turns beet red and then his head goes BOOM!

Today my glee is derived from President Obama's appointment of Amanda Simpson, a transgender woman, to be the Senior Technical Adviser to the Commerce Department.

Oh, the drama!

Amanda Simpson, a former test pilot, has been active in the aerospace and defense industry for the past 30 years who also served as Deputy Director in Advanced Technology Development for Raytheon.

Seems qualified enough? NO! Noooooo! Not for card carrying conservatives and prominent figures of the religious right. They are claiming that she was picked only as part of some transsexual agenda. You heard that right... The insidious transsexual agenda!!!!!!!

Here are just a few examples of heads exploding...

Peter LaBarbera, president of the anti-gay group Americans for Truth. "How far does this politics of gay and transgender activism go? Clearly this is an administration that is pandering to the gay lobby."

Matt Barber, associate dean at Jerry Fallwell's Liberty University, said the appointment "boggles the mind" and said that while African-Americans might deserve special treatment, transgender people don't.

David Brody at the Christian Broadcasting Network also predicted a right-wing backlash, "I understand President Obama won't be after die hard conservative Evangelicals in 2012 but let's remember that moves like this don't play well with the million of conservative Independent voters and Catholics who will be up for grabs again in 2012 as well."

WorldNetDaily's Chelsea Schilling and Kathleen Farah opted to refer to Simpson with the male pronoun.

What none of these conservatives have even considered is that Simpson was just the best candidate for the job. I guess they were too busy thinking about Simpsons genitalia.

The Real Face Of The Tea Party

All day long I listen to these Tea Party nut-jobs tell the world how they are just your average John and Jane Does just out to voice their displeasure over the current administration. They say how their anger towards President Barack Obama has nothing to do with the color of his skin. These teabaggers and their apologists repeatedly deny that racism plays any part in their rallies insisting that their concern is over their vanishing liberties and the deterioration of Americas values. I guess we shouldn't believe our lying eyes because this sure looks like racism to me. Please meet Dale Robertson (pictured above). Dale operates and claims he is a true Patriot. I think Dale's sign says it all... don't you?

Brit Hume Offers Christ's Love For Sex Addict Tiger Woods!

Former leader of Fox News' political reporting and host of "Special Report", Brit Hume, has singled out Tiger Woods for some personal advice. The message Hume wishes to convey to Woods is that only Christ's' love can heal what ails him. Apparently Buddism, which is Tigers personal choice as far as religion goes, will not do the trick. Hume says...

"He is said to be a Buddhist. I don't think that faith offers the kind of forgiveness and redemption that is offered by the Christian faith. My message to Tiger would, 'Tiger, turn to the Christian faith and you can make a total recovery and be a great example to the world."

I assume that Hume believes being a Buddist is not such a "great" example to the world. After all we can be certain that Christians do make "great" examples and never stray from their marital vows.... Right?

OK now, let's just start with the politicians....

Sen. John Ensign (R-NV), Sen. David Vitter (R-LA), Former Mayor Rudy Giuliani, Sen. Larry Craig (R-Idaho), Gov. Mark Sanford (R-sc)... ect, ect, ect, ect. Let's not forget that there are plenty of Democrats that fix into this mix as well like Clinton, Edwards, and Spitzer to name a few. Every one of these guy is as Christian as the next. I wonder if Hume keeps up with this stuff. Oh, I forgot he works for Fox "News"!

Man I hate me some ignorant, arrogant, pompous, idiots! Speaking of Bit Hume here's the video of his plea to Tiger...

No U.S. Deaths In Iraq In December

December was the first month since the beginning of the Iraq war in which there were no U.S. combat deaths, the U.S. military reported. How long do you think it will be before Cheney comes out and criticizes Obama by saying that because since he isn't getting people killed in Iraq that he's trying to pretend" that we are not at war.
