The attorney general will not cast aspersions on my asparagus.
Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) in a House Judiciary Committee meeting, while questioning Attorney General Eric Holder. Next to Gohmert, Michele Bachmann is a fricking genius.
We all wondered how Harry Reid had Mitt Romney’s taxes.
Republican National Committee spokeswoman Kirsten Kukowski, inadvertently admitting that Harry Reid was correct and had the goods when he said Romney had not paid any income tax for 10 years.
Brilliant.org is a website that offers challenging questions in the various disciplines of pure and applied mathematics. I am a 50 year old female American who uses the website to keep my math skills honed (I also teach math and love the challenge level of the questions posed). What portion of the small 9% sliver representing “The Americas” is also “female” and “old” like me?
Yes, I have changed my political affiliation to the Democratic Party.
It doesn’t take much to see the culture of intolerance surrounding the Republican Party today.
Former RNC Florida Hispanic Outreach Director Pablo Pantoja, who announced his resignation from this post and change in party affiliation in an email yesterday. Pantoja had been tasked with voter outreach to Florida’s 4.7 million Hispanic voters, but finally realized what most others already have: you can’t put lipstick on a racist party that puts out reports citing “low Hispanic IQs” as reason to prevent “wetbacks” from a path to citizenship.
That’s like trying to use a croissant as a fucking dildo. It doesn’t do the job and it makes a fucking mess.

All the liberal whiners who didn’t show up to vote in 2010 because their little pet issue was not being addressed by President Obama in his first 20 months in office was what got us the Tea Party Express steaming its maroon ways into D.C. Now you people are going to abandon Obama over chained CPI?? That’s frickin’ ridiculous! The way chained CPI is calculated reflects how many people live. If tuna fish gets too expensive, maybe I will switch to canned salmon.
Too bad that all the people who know how to run this country are busy driving taxis and cutting hair.
It is good politics to oppose the black guy in the White House right now, especially for the Republican Party.
Rep. Kris Crawford, a Republican state congressman Florence, South Carolina. Crawford is also an emergency room doctor who supports the Medicaid expansion, but expects the Republican caucus to vote as a block against the Medicaid expansion.
“Especially” for the Republican Party? ONLY for the Republican party, asshole.
It’s really too bad the Repube faux-outrage-fax-of-the-day instructed the lemmings to be upset about the tourists not getting their White House tour rather than something important that actually affects people like:
- The Army’s suspension of its tuition assistance program
- Head Start cuts for preschoolers
- Furloughed air traffic controllers
Now we know why no Republican ever says specifically what S/HE would cut when rallying for budget cuts, because voters don’t want government services drastically cut. This time it’s the Republicans in Congress who don’t like the cutbacks.
