Sunday Morning Coffee (or Tea) – 46

Just a few newsworthy events and comments thereon that have been making their way through the political universe this past week. Please ponder and maybe chuckle a bit before enjoying a wonderful day.

BREAKING NEWS: This week’s episode of “No New Taxes” features Florida Republican Congressional candidate, Bruce O’Donaghue. The candidate who plans to run against incumbent Democrat Alan Grayson for his District 8 seat owes the IRS more than $300,000 after he failed to pay his payroll taxes for last year. That is a new and novel way for G.O.P. members to avoid tax hikes.

THIS JUST IN: There is a new progressive boycott this week. Moveon.org and scores of other progressive groups are sponsoring a boycott of retailer Target stores as the result of the chains $ 150,000.00 donation to a group that has endorsed a Republican Minnesota gubernatorial candidate that is a fierce opponent of gay marriage rights. now allowed to freely contribute directly to political efforts following the Supreme Court’s landmark Citizen’s United v. Federal Election Commission decision that was handed down earlier this year. Activists have gone online, also urging a boycott of the retailer, claiming that a company that prides itself on welcoming all people should not contribute to a group that endorses an anti same-sex marriage candidate. Lynnrockets’ Blast-Off urges readers to do the right thing and join this boycott.

BREAKING NEWS: This week’s episode of “Don’t Know Much About History” features Massachusetts’ newest and nudist Republican Senator, Scott Brown. Despite the fact that she hails from his home state, Brown voted against Elena Kagan’s confirmation as Justice of the Supreme Court. Brown said, “I believe nominees to the Supreme Court should have previously served on the bench”. Perhaps Mr. Brown is not aware that none of the following Supreme Court justices ever served on the bench either: Hugo Black, Robert Jackson, William O. Douglas, William H. Rehnquist and Lewis F. Powell Jr. Brown’s vote was inconsequential however, as Kagan easily secured the confirmation with 5 other Republicans voting in her favor.

THIS JUST IN:  Sharron Angle, the Republican/Tea Party candidate that is running against incumbent Nevada Senator Harry Reid, is crazier than we thought. It has recently been discovered that back in April, the Sarah Palin endorsed moonbat had this to say during a radio interview,

…what’s happening in this country is a violation of the First Commandment. We have become a country entrenched in idolatry, and that idolatry is the dependency upon our government. We’re supposed to depend upon God for our protection and our provision and for our daily bread, not  our government.

Can anybody else hear those crickets chirping?

BREAKING NEWS: This week’s episode of ” Taxes? We Don’t Need No Stinking Taxes!” features South Carolina’s Republican/Tea Party gubernatorial candidate Nikki Haley who has consistently missed the April 15 tax-filing deadline, according to additional records released last Wednesday, filing her income taxes more than a year late in 2005 and 2006. Haley, a Lexington County state representative, has paid more than $4,000 in late-payment penalties since 2004. In two years the Haley family paid only $83 in state income taxes. The Sarah Palin endorsed candidate has emphasized her accounting experience on the campaign trail.

THIS JUST IN: Republican Senator John Ensign of Nevada, who is under a legal and ethics cloud as a result of an extra-marital affair he had with an aide’s wife, started a legal defense fund (ala Sarah Palin) last May to cover hundreds of thousands in legal fees. The Week reports however, that so far, the fund has received only $ 10.00, and that contribution came from Ensign himself. So much for conservative support for a “family values” member of the G.O.P.

LET FOX IN

(sung to the Paul McCartney and Wings song “Let ‘Em In”)

Someone’s sniveling on the tube
Somebody’s startin’ to yell
Someone’s sportin’ new boobs
Somebody reeks of hair gel

Do me a favor,
Change the channel and let Fox in
Ooh yeah

Someone’s not “fair and balanced”
Somebody’s missing brain cells
Someone’s psyche is imbalanced
Somebody’s wearing pastels

Do me a favor,
Change the channel and let Fox in
Yeah ,yeah, yeah, let Fox in

Neil Cavuto, O’Reilly

Somebody’s starting to pout

  1. With all these tax-evading GOP candidates, it really makes a tax-payer like me wonder why they want jobs where our taxes pay their salaries and benefits. They should be disqualified from running if they are caught. Bachmann on her “farm”, Palin on her, etc. “cabin”

  2. Targeting gays

    Survivors of the fifty percent of marriages that end up in divorce court should be banned from pontificating about sanctity of any kind- God doesn’t hate gays, or even bigots. Republican climate change deniers should stop worrying about gay marriage leading to the end of the world- if anything, they should be urging gays to hurry up!
