Just a few noteworthy political meteorites and comments thereon that have been careening around the galaxy this past week.
BREAKING NEWS: The first (maybe annual) Tea-Bagging Convention is taking place this weekend in Nashville. The event is being attended by every uneducated, Fox News watching retard (oops, sorry Sarah) that could scrape up the $ 500.00 admission fee to help fund Sarah Palin’s six figure speaking fee. The opening speaker was former Republican Colorado Senator Tom Tancredo and he was way over the top. Here is a portion of what he said to the grey matter deprived audience,
People who could not even spell the word ‘vote’, or say it in English, put a committed socialist ideologue in the White House. His name is Barack Hussein Obama. So the race for America is on right now. The president and his left-wing allies in Congress are going to look at every opportunity to destroy the Constitution before we have a chance to save it. So put your running shoes on. Because I’ll tell you, I’ve heard we need a revolution. My friends, we already had it. We lost. I mean, what happened to us in that last election was a revolution.
This guy is a racist of the first order. Let’s hope that the rest of the speakers are just as hate filled as Tancredo. If this type of ideology is branded to the Tea-Baggers, the movement will implode sooner than later.
THIS JUST IN: Don’t you wish that John Edwards was Republican so that blogs like this could have some fun?
BREAKING NEWS: This week’s edition of “Republicans Eating Their Own” co-features The Club For Growth and Newt Gingrich. CNN reports the conservative Club for Growth is hitting back at former House Speaker Newt Gingrich for criticizing the small government group during an appearance in Utah for Republican Sen. Bob Bennett. The Club is actively working to defeat Bennett, who is seeking re-election in November. Gingrich said,
I wish the Club for Growth would spend as much time and energy to defeat liberal Democrats as they do dividing Republicans,” Gingrich told a crowd at Bennett’s formal campaign launch, according to the Deseret News. “I try to defeat liberal Democrats. I don’t spend much time trying to defeat Republicans.
The Club For Growth fired back through its president Chris Chocola ( by the way, where do Republicans get these names, Chocola, Boehner, etc.) who said,
Newt has proven time and again that he will support any Republican, regardless of policies and principles. That’s his right, but the Club for Growth PAC puts principles over party
Keep up the feuding, G.O.P. Divide and collapse.
THIS JUST IN: The Fox News network reports that 75 million people have already attended the Tea -Bagging Convention as of Sunday morning. Glenn Beck predicts that another 200 million will appear for Sarah Palin’s speech.
BREAKING NEWS: This week’s edition of “Flip-Flopping Republicans” features the addle-minded John McCain. Remember in 2006 when he said this about the “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy regarding gays in the military,
The day that the leadership of the military comes to me and says, ‘Senator we ought to change the policy’ then I think we ought to seriously consider changing it.
Well, that was then and this is now. Defense Secretary Robert Gates and Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Mike Mullen (i.e. “leadership of the military”) have now said that the “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy should be abandoned. McCain’s response?
It would be far more appropriate, I say with great respect, to determine whether repealing this law is appropriate and what effects it would have on the readiness and effectiveness of the military before deciding on whether we should repeal the law or not, and fortunately it is an act of Congress and it requires the agreement of Congress in order to repeal it…
Well, I’m happy to say we still have a Congress of the United States that would have to pass a law to repeal Don’t Ask Don’t Tell, despite your efforts to repeal it, in many respects, by fiat.
They call him Flipper, Flipper, faster than lightening…
THIS JUST IN: The Queen of Stupid, Sarah Palin spoke at the Tea-Bagging Convention last night. She repeated all oher usual drivel and added this to the Pig with lipstick’s lexicon, “How’s that hope-y, change-y stuff working out for you?”. Don’t worry however because CNN reports that opinion on Sarah Palin breaks down along party lines, with 7 in 10 Democrats disliking her and 7 in 10 Republicans with a positive view of Palin. She has a net-negative rating among Independents: 42 percent favorable and 47 percent unfavorable. She is unelectable.
BREAKING NEWS: For those wondering, Lynnrockets’ heart is with the Saints but his/her money is on the Colts to cover. GO COLTS!

A DAY IN THE LIFE (OF THE G.O.P.)
(sung to the Beatles song “A Day In The Life”)
I read the news today oh, boy
About a senator who made the grade
And though the news was rather sad
Well, I just had to laugh
Is there a photograph?
John Ensign’s tryst will leave a scar
A “family values” guy who’s values changed
His dirty laundry will be aired
We’ve seen his kind before
In hypocrisy the G.O.P. wins all of the awards
I watched the news today oh, boy
Seems David Vitter spent time with a whore
It was a girl so he’s not gay
But here’s the funny hook
It’s all in her book
He’d love to make her gone
Horned up and out of bed
Larry Craig needed some head
Went to the airport to find a pup
Things looking up, he thought he found some bait
Found a leg to give a pat
Caught a bust in seconds flat
Gave a poor excuse when the news broke
Just another joke in the dirty G.O.P.
Ah, ah,ah, ah, ah, ah ,ah ……….
I read the news today oh, boy
The Sunshine State’s Mark Foley is a queer
These guys spew hate but have no balls
The party’s sure to fall
Hypocritical A-holes heading straight into a wall
They’d love to turn you on
