Mid-Week News Bomb

Just a few newsworthy items (and comments thereon) that have been making their way through the political universe this past week but may have escaped your attention. Please ponder and maybe chuckle a bit before enjoying a wonderful day!

BREAKING NEWS: By now, everybody should be well aware that Republican Presidential Nominee Mitt Romney is an animal abuser. It is common knowledge that some years ago Mitt(wit) strapped the family dog to the roof of his car for a 12 hour drive to Canada during which the horrified pet was so frightened that it soiled itself to the extent that diarrhea was flowing down the car windows. When Mitt(wit) became aware of the pet’s distress did he he help the animal and bring it inside the vehicle? Heck no! He simply pulled over at a service station, washed the dog down with a hose and strapped him right back up there for the remainder of the ride. Not only was Romney’s action illegal, but it was also inhumane. Well, the dog’s of America are now united against Mitt. They have formed a public interest group known as “Dog’s Against Romney” which has its own Facebook page. Check it out here.

THIS JUST IN:   Speaking of Facebook, CNN reports that Marine Sgt. Gary Stein who used his Facebook page to criticize President Barack Obama has been given an “other-than-honorable” discharge from the military branch. An other-than-honorable discharge is given to a Marine who commits a “serious offense” that significantly differs from conduct expected of a Marine. Among other comments posted to his Facebook page, Stein called President Obama a liar and suggested he would not follow some orders issued by the president. He also said the President is “the ‘Domestic Enemy’ our oath speaks about.” Good riddance to this creep, the American military does not need this type of undisciplined person endangering the lives of his fellow Marines.

BREAKING NEWS:  Former lame and unpopular rocker and current conservative radio personality Ted Nugent was in the news again this week. Last week the shock jock was questioned by the Secret Service for comments he made in a recent NRA speech such as, “If Barack Obama becomes the next President in November, again, I will either be dead or in jail by this time next year”, and “We need to ride into that battlefield and chop their heads off in November.” This week Nugent signed a plea agreement with federal prosecutors admitting he illegally shot and transported black bear in Southeast Alaska two years ago. As a result, Nugent will pay a $10,000 fine and create a 30- to 60-second public service announcement about responsible hunting to run on his show every other week. Nugent will be banned from hunting or fishing anywhere in Alaska and on any U.S. Forest Service land nationwide for one year. He will also be placed on two years’ probation.

THIS JUST IN:  This week’s episode of “Republicans With really bad Timing” features Republican gov. Rick Scott of Florida. The ultra conservative pol vetoed $1.5 million in funding for 30 rape crisis centers in the middle of Sexual Assault Awareness Month. State lawmakers had allotted the money to offset an increase in need and a lack of sufficient funding for victim services. This is just another example of the ongoing Republican War on Women.

BREAKING NEWS: Speaking of crazy Republican governors, Wisconsin’s soon-to-be recalled Scott Walker is losing GOP support within his own state. The AP reports that Rep. Robin Vos (R-Rochester), Wisconsin State Chairman of ALEC, appears to be abandoning his support of Scott Walker just as the John Doe investigation into crimes committed by staff members during his tenure as Milwaukee County Executive looms ever closer to Walker himself. Vos calls Walker a “whack job”. Vos is correct.

THIS JUST IN:  Do you need any more proof that Republican Governors are psychotic? Ask and you shall receive. Case in point: Mississippi Gov. Phil Bryant who this week said, “their (liberals) one mission in life is to abort children, is to kill children in the womb. It doesn’t really matter, they don’t care if the mother’s life is in jeopardy, that if something goes wrong that a doctor can’t admit them to a local hospital, that he’s not even board certified.” So, the Left’s primary mission is the creation of a world where all babies are aborted? The folks who vote for these crackpots are just as delusional (or more) than those they elect.

BREAKING NEWS:  The New York Times reports that the defeat of two conservative House Democrats by more liberal opponents in Tuesday’s Pennsylvania primary illustrates the strong hold the new health care law still has over committed Democratic voters. Representatives Jason Altmire and Tim Holden both lost in primaries to opponents who joined together with activist groups to pummel the veteran lawmakers over the opposition to the new health care law and climate change legislation — positions they had used to their advantage in the past to show their independence from President Obama and the Democratic Party. Let’s hope these primary election victors are also victorious in the general so that the House will have some more “true” Democrats.

THIS JUST IN:  Ann Romney is as out of touch as husband Mitt. At a Republican awards dinner last night she actually said, “I love the fact that there are women out there who don’t have a choice and they must go to work and they still have to raise the kids.” What? She actually “loves” the fact that not all women are rich like her and must both work and raise their children without having “the choice” (like she did) to do one or the other? Yikes!

REPUBLICAN WOMEN

(sung to the Guess Who song “American Woman”)

Republican women they’ve all lost their minds
Republican women, they’ve really lost their minds
Republican women they’ve all lost their minds
Republican women they’ve all lost their minds

Say “R”, say “E”, say “P”
Say “U”, Say “B” Say “L”, say “I”, say “C”
Say “A” “N”

Republican women they’ve all lost their minds
Republican women they’ve all lost their minds
Republican women they’ve all lost their minds

Republican women, stay away from me
Republican women, from the G.O.P.
You are someone I’ll just ignore
I don’t wanna see your face no more
I got more important things to do
And I will never be sold on you

Now women, I said stay away

Republican women, listen what I say

Republican women, have no dignity
Republican women, and their tea-parties
Like I told you the time before
Michele Bachmann is just a bore
Mann Coulter I do despise
Malkin has a lazy eye
Now women, I said get away
Republican women, listen what I say

Republican women, it’s clear as day
Republican women, they’re no Tina Fey
Talk about defending our shores
Their husbands prefer time with whores
Jean Schmidt always makes a scene
Sarah Palin thinks she’s queen
Mary Matalin’s hypnotized
Ingraham’s mouth is super-sized
Now women, from the G.O.P.
Republican women, mama let me be

Go, gotta get away, gotta get away
Now go go go
Gonna leave you, women
Gonna leave you, women
Bye-bye
Bye-bye
Bye-bye
Bye-bye
You’re no good for me
I’m no good for you
Gonna look you right in the eye.
Tell you what I’m gonna do
You know I’m gonna leave
You know I’m gonna go
You know I’m gonna leave
You know I’m gonna go, women
I’m gonna leave, women
Goodbye, Republican women
