Women, Know Your Limits

in Funny, Gender. Femenism & Patriarchy, Politics, Republicans, Video

Almost missed this piece from the National Journal – a profile of Jan Larimer, the GOP’s kinder, gentler face for recruiting more women to the privileged white male party:

Larimer has spearheaded the party's efforts to recruit and train more women candidates. And based on the GOP's efforts this year, the party needs the help … "We're working with the women in Congress ... to empower the women in their states to get involved and to participate," Larimer told Hotline OnCall in an interview at the party's annual Winter meeting in Honolulu.

"Women sometimes need a little more handholding, or they need their friends to help them make a decision. And by our going in and talking to them and recruiting and educating and training them to either get involved in a campaign or become a candidate, we're giving them the tools so that they can do that on their own," Larimer added.

Lest there be any confusion, this isn;t some low-level PR lackey - this is the RNC co-chair! Off the record, Larimer later noted that the GOP is far more gender-evolved today than ever before.  Women can wear trousers, drive cars, and even decide for themselves when they should have dinner on the table.

Jobs Bill Passes Senate With Help From Republican Hypocrites

in Congress, Politics, Republicans

In the midst of 9+% unemployment, the minority Gestapo had the temerity to mount a filibuster against a jobs bill that was mostly tax cuts – the very same words that hypocrite Sarah Palin had written on her hand! These sick old white men are so hell-bent on petulant obstructionism that they would even vote against their own signature issue.  That is, until … gasp, the Republican Messiah and embodied proof of the impending 2010 Tsunami traitorous liberal scumbag Scott Brown decided to cross ranks with the GOP caucus and cast a vote in line with his own politics. 

Seriously though, send the kids out of the room and go check out what his flock are saying about him on Facebook.  Yowza.  But wait,  there’s more …

After squeaking with 62 votes for cloture, the bill passed today by a margin of 70 to 28.  Now I’m no mathematician, but even with the 2 absentees from Monday, that makes 6 Republican hypocrites who tried to stop the vote from happening at all and then voted to pass the bill anyway - Alexander (TN), Cochran (MS), Lemieux (FL), Murkowski (AK), Wicker (MS), and, of course, Inhofe (OK).  Seriously … this  must be a previously undiscovered apex of douche-baggery.

Sarah Palin Using Hand as a Cheat Sheet?

in Politics, Republicans, Tea Party

Seriously, I could care less about this story.  We all know that Palin has a limited ability to think on her feet, so if she needs a little help to remember her talking points, power to her.  I mean, anything is better than the kind of verbal flatulence she spewed during the campaign.  But when she does it WHILE slamming Obama for using a teleprompter … well, that’s just mock-worthy!

MotherJones Blog: Obama to Bush: I Can Release Your Records. Don't Like It? Sue.

in Barack Hussein Obama, George W. Bush, Politics

Ohhh snap!

On his first day in office, President Obama put former president Bush on notice. His administration just released an executive order that will make it difficult for Bush to shield his White House records--and those of former Vice President Dick Cheney--from public scrutiny by invoking the doctrine of executive privilege. Shortly after taking office, Bush handed down his own executive order, amending the Presidential Records Act to give current and past presidents, along with their heirs, veto power over the release of presidential records, which are considered the property of the American people.

"[Obama]'s putting former presidents on notice that if you want to continue a claim of executive privilege that [Obama] doesn't think is well-placed, you're going to have to go to court," says Anne Weismann, the chief counsel for Citizens for Ethics and Responsibility in Washington (CREW).

Cowards and Thieves begone!!

Oh Happy Day!

in Barack Hussein Obama, George W. Bush, Politics, Terrorism

President Obama yesterday eliminated the most controversial tools employed by his predecessor against terrorism suspects. With the stroke of his pen, he effectively declared an end to the "war on terror," as President George W. Bush had defined it, signaling to the world that the reach of the U.S. government in battling its enemies will not be limitless.

While Obama says he has no plans to diminish counterterrorism operations abroad, the notion that a president can circumvent long-standing U.S. laws simply by declaring war was halted by executive order in the Oval Office.

Key components of the secret structure developed under Bush are being swept away: The military's Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, facility, where the rights of habeas corpus and due process had been denied detainees, will close, and the CIA is now prohibited from maintaining its own overseas prisons. And in a broad swipe at the Bush administration's lawyers, Obama nullified every legal order and opinion on interrogations issued by any lawyer in the executive branch after Sept. 11, 2001.

It was a swift and sudden end to an era that was slowly drawing to a close anyway, as public sentiment grew against perceived abuses of government power.

Barack Obama - Too Dark for America

in Barack Hussein Obama, Politics, Racism

IllDoctrine - tell it like it is!

We're Racists for McCain and we APPROVE this message!

In related news, investigative reporters from Fafblog! have uncovered some pretty damning facts about Obama. Seriously, this could be the October surprise that the Palin/Old Man ticket have been waiting for. For example:

FACT! Barack Obama has been friends with Rashid Khalidi, an openly Arab Arab who is so Arab he writes about other Arabs. Is Barack Obama part of the international Arab conspiracy to trick white people into thinking about Arabs? Answer: also maybe.

FACT! Barack Obama talks about his white mother and his white grandparents and the white half of his family that is white, but did you know that half of his family is also black? In fact, half his family is so black that Obama keeps them hidden away on a whole other continent where they speak in a strange, otherworldly code which is not even English. What is Obama trying to hide? Possibly something black. BONUS FACT! Barack Obama may be half-white and half-black, but he married a woman who is completely black. In a way, doesn't that make him three-quarters black? Math doesn't lie, people!

Hands off My Child!

in Elections, Politics, Video

Via AmericaBlog, Chuck Todd calls this ad shameless.  As a new poppa myself, I think it is spot on and Mr. McGoo McSame McCain is the one who should be ashamed.

on a side note, C&L has the skinny on Grumpy-Puss's new record - 10 flip-flops in 2 weeks! Who says the elderly can't still show us a thing or two!
