James O'Keefe And Crew Are Not In The Same League As Hunter S. Thompson

Click on pics for larger image

Some misguided commentator made the lame statement that the right wing nut case James O'Keefe was comparable to the late Hunter S. Thompson. O'Keefe was also said to be practicing "Gonzo" journalism.
Nothing could be further from the truth. James O'keefe. you're no Hunter Thompson!Thompson was no idealogue. He was no party hack. He marched to the beat of his own, very strange, drum. He railed against former President Nixon but he was in no way connected with politics, he had his own agenda.
Thompson was a brilliant writer and was the inspiration for Doonesbury's 'Duke' character.
O'Keefe and his crew are overtly partisan and much closer to the 'Plumbers' of Watergate notoriety, except much dumber.

Another South Carolina Republican has shown himself to be a cold and callous example of a real American.
South Carolina Lieutenant Governor Andre Bauer is running to replace Governor Mark Sanford. Speaking at a town hall meeting Bauer compared the poor to stray animals. Bauer explained that his grandmother told him he shouldn't feed stray animals because 'they breed.'
He used this statement as an analogy to the poor who relied on government assistance.

The Duped And The Duplicitous!

Click on pic for larger image
The GOP is still the party of no. They are following Jim "Demented" Demint's admonition concerning health care reform being President Obama's Waterloo. They have opposed every policy and program proposed by the President, regardless of whether or not it hurts America. They have refused to participate in serious discussion and then they cry that they have been "excluded" from these discussions.
The only apparent interest the Republicans have is bringing down Obama and regaining power.
The Republicans are becoming a party of the duped and the duplicitous. For example the duped include those who support Sarah Palin for high office because they believe in her and the duplicitous are those who support her while knowing she is totally unqualified to be any sort of political leader or office holder while they hope to use her to get back in power.

Supreme Court Rules That Corporations Now May Dominate Elections

Welcome to the newly named Goldman-Sachs Supreme Court Building, named by their corporate sponsor!

In a 5-4 ruling the Supreme Court overturned the McCain-Feingold campaign spending law and cleared the way for corporations, unions and any special interest to engage in unlimited campaign financing. Voting in favor of this abomination of a court ruling were Justices Roberts, Scalia, Alito, Thomas and Kennedy. No surprises here!
This decision apparently did not take into account foreign owned or multinational corporations. Does this mean they have the same right to participate in our electoral process as American citizens?
Now corporations will operate in an even more politicized atmosphere than they do now and they will have the ability to overwhelm any other special interest as campaign spending goes!
This move firmly establishes a government of the corporations, by the corporations and for the corporations.

Pat Robertson, Rush Limbaugh; Hateful Words On Haiti

Click on Pics for larger image

Pat Robertson and Rush Limbaugh have outdone themselves with their hateful, ignorant remarks concerning the disaster in Haiti.
Robertson said that Haiti had made a "pact with the devil" in order to gain independence from the French early in the 19th century. "That's a true story" he said and that "being cursed by the devil" is responsible for Haiti's long history of poverty, dictatorships and disasters. This is the latest in a long string of incredibly stupid things he has said about past events.
Limbaugh said that Obama's strong response to the disaster is so he can gain some "cred" with "both black and light skinned African Americans."
It certainly didn't take long for these TV right wing extremists to try to use a horrible, tragic event for their own crass purposes.
I guess these are some of the guys who represent the "Real Americans!"

Liz Cheny is following in her Dad's dubious footsteps as she trods the Sunday morning opinion TV shows and the political circuit attacking President Obama and the Democrats with a blatant disregard for the truth or recent history.

Rudy Giuliani Proves Once And For All He is Certifiably Nuts!

click on pic for bigger image

Rudy Giuliani was on Good Morning America the other day running down President Obama as soft on terror and blasting him for the failed December 25, airliner bombing attempt.
Giuliani said that under G.W. Bush there had been no attacks on the American homeland. That is an odd thing to say from the former New York City mayor whose entire reputation was built on the 9-11 terror attack.
Giuliani and many other GOP critics seemed to also have forgotten about Richard Reid, the "shoe bomber," who made an attempt to blow up an airliner and who was tried and convicted in a U.S. civil court, a move that Giuliani then praised as an example of our judicial system which made us stand out above all other nations. He's singing a different tune now because of political expediency.
