Crazy in Washington State

Tuesday, April 6th, 2010

A charming development, right here in my own state of Washington:

A central Washington man was so enraged by the passage of federal health care reform that he threatened to kill U.S. Sen. Patty Murray, prosecutors charged Tuesday.
“I want to …. kill you,” court documents say Charles Alan Wilson of Selah said in one of his [...]

Psychobabble

Sunday, March 1st, 2009

Literally the day after Greg Sargent broke news of the Democrats’ plan to frame the GOP as the Party of Limbaugh, the Republicans… announced that the GOP is the Party of Limbaugh.
Like North Koreans fearful of retribution for hinting even a thread of doubt over the infallibility of “Dear Leader” Kim Jung Il, Republicans at [...]

The Fix is In

Thursday, January 29th, 2009

I’m sure everyone’s heard of athletes who bet against their own team’s performance. You know—tanking a game because you have someone betting on a loss. That’s what the Neoconzi-controlled Republican party has done this week.
Yesterday, the House passed the president’s stimulus package, with zero “Republicans” voting for it. Their reasoning, curiously [...]

V-A Day: Victory for America, November 4, 2008

Wednesday, November 5th, 2008

“Yes we can”
Barack Obama was elected President of the United States with more votes than any other in America’s history, with the largest percentage of votes of any Democrat since Lyndon Johnson (61.1%)—as well as the largest percentage of votes for a newcomer to the White House since Johnson Eisenhower in 1952 (55.2%)… and people [...]

Ineffective Dave Reichert Caught Copying, Lying & Cheating

Friday, October 31st, 2008

8th District Representative Dave Reichert, the former Washington State Chair of Giuliani’s presidential campaign who endorsed John McCain immediately after Giuliani dropped-out, has been caught copying the Neocon smear tactic of attacking achievement, lying (or sinning) about his own academic credentials, and cheating to score some beaucoup “bacon” for his campaign of smears.
Evidently, Reichert—or his [...]

Darcy Burner Earned THE Harvard Economics Degree

Saturday, October 25th, 2008

Subtitle: LIAR GATE and How it Relates to Lying Dave Reichert
Many have addressed the Neocon lying smear campaign belittling the Economics degree Darcy Burner earned from Harvard University, including Goldy at Horsesass.org, the Huffington Post, and even Harvard University Professor Harry Lewis.
Given that most have discussed details about a “concentration” in Economics at Harvard and [...]

McCain Campaign in the Bargain Basement

Friday, October 24th, 2008

Literally! As seen at a local Fred Meyer store in Lake City, WA, October 23, 2008:

“Trick or treat!”, eh? The whole rack was McCain T-shirts. Here’s the view from the, uh… right:

The only Obama/Biden T-shirts I saw were being worn by Obama/Biden voters.

Mein McKampf

Friday, October 10th, 2008

What was that in Waukesha yesterday!?
It’s one thing that McCain is imploding—that’s obvious—and maybe it’s the dairy cows in Wisconsin that’re getting the “maverick” worked-up, but just because McCain has put the jackboots on, is that any reason for the local rotund stormtrooper from Wisconsin to stage a theatrical rendition of the Beer Hall McPutsch [...]

LiarGate and How it Relates to Tax Policy

Saturday, September 13th, 2008

With LiarGate in the media under various titles, such as McCain gets grilled on ‘The View’, Campaign of lies disgraces McCain, and Will McCain-Palin Lies Hurt Them?, it’s obvious what a dishonorable fraud that has been perpetrated upon the once respectable Republican Party—and the insult that party delivered to American conservatives and independents.
In the [...]

Johnny McCain & Sarah Superstar: One Trick Pony

Saturday, September 13th, 2008

It’s not about pigs. Or even pit bulls… It’s a pony.
A one trick pony.
Johnny McCain and Sarah Superstar rode into the RNC on a spectacular white horse of superstardom. Like Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, they energized their adoring fans and were flocked by the paparazzi. They brought star power with [...]

Bush Does It Again

Sunday, July 6th, 2008

He breaks another approval/disapproval record. From Rasmussen:

During June, President Bush’s Job Approval ratings fell for the fifth straight month and set a new all-time low for the third straight month.
For the full month of June, just 32% approved of the way the President performed his job. That’s down a single point from [...]

Bob Barr (L)

Monday, May 26th, 2008

The Libertarians have made their choice:

Georgia’s Bob Barr won a long and tense battle Sunday for the 2008 Libertarian Party’s presidential nomination and now faces the daunting task of doing what no third-party candidate has done: Win in November.
[...]
Having someone with Barr’s relatively high profile “means great things for the Libertarian Party,” national party [...]

So Sad An Elephant

Sunday, May 11th, 2008

Goldy at HorsesAss.org recently wrote about the signs of gloom and doom for the Republicans. The bad new and “expectations management” continues. Just look at a couple of the articles that hit the press this weekend:
Politico has the headline GOP getting crushed in polls, key races:

In case you’ve been too consumed [...]

Whose Responsibility?

Tuesday, December 12th, 2006

From the Wall Street Journal Blog:

In denouncing the Democrats’ plan to keep the government running under a funding resolution through the end of the fiscal year, outgoing Senate Budget Committee Chairman Judd Gregg could barely contain his metaphor.
“It is disappointing to see that, despite all the campaign promises made by the liberal party that it [...]

Worst President Ever’s Lowest Approval Ever

Saturday, December 9th, 2006

George W. Bush earned his lowest approval rating this week in a Zogby telepohone poll:

The national job approval rating of President Bush has plummeted to 30%, an all–time low in the latest Zogby International telephone poll, sinking below the 31% approval rating he dropped to in early June.
The President’s positive job rating is down from [...]
