I literally can’t wait to see how many Tea Partiers turn out for the “grassroots,” Sarah Palin, Fox “News,” RNC-endorsed “Code Red” rally tomorrow in D.C.
Translation: House Republican Don Young of Alaska, whose party claims to be against “earmarks” and “special interests,” caved today:
I am elected to serve my constituents, and as long as they continue to request federal funding for their projects of interest, then I will continue to do my best to accommodate them.
I can’t wait to hear more about Young’s “constituents” and their “projects of interest.” I’m guessing the “constituents” and “projects” align with ExxonMobil more than they do with Joe and Jane Doe in Nome or Anchorage.
Oh Jeez. A few minutes ago I made the mistake of channel surfing. I landed on Bravo’s “Real Housewives of New York.” One of the “real housewives” was entertaining her former maid in a backyard sit-down — a weathered table, green grass, blue sky, a breeze and lemonade — when, while essentially saying good-bye, she said, “I had to hire another girl.”
Okay. That’s it. When grown women are “girls” I’ve had enough. I mean, the “liberal media” refers to 15-year-old boys as “men,” but 20, 25, 30, 40-year-old women are “girls?”
A puppy becomes a dog after about two years. A filly becomes a mare after three or four years. A kitten becomes a cat after one year. But female humans are “girls” forever?
No. Bye-bye Bravo.
(I wonder what people around the world who have universal health care and who don’t give a second thought to paying for medical services think about people in this country actually protesting our feeble attempt to implement something like what they’ve got. They must think we’re absolutely insane to mobilize against our own interests.)
Yo. Hello. “Liberal media,” where are you? Anybody home? The Tea Party is a “grassroots organization?” I don’t think so: RNC Blacks Out “Paid for by RNC” Line on Tea Party Signs.
Glenn Beck has a new target in the Rev. Jim Wallis, who objected to Beck asking people to leave churches that advocate for “social justice.” After Wallis wrote to Beck on Friday, “proposing that the two of us sit down together and have an open and public discussion on what social justice really means and how Christians are called to engage in the struggle for justice,” Beck responded today with this:
So Jim, I just wanted to pass this on to you. In my time I will respond — my time, well, kind of like God’s time, might be a day, might be a week to you, I’m not sure. But I’m going to get to it in my time, not your time. So you go ahead and you continue to do your protest thing, and that’s great. I love it. But just know — the hammer is coming, because little do you know, for eight weeks, we’ve been compiling information on you, your cute little organization, and all the other cute little people that are with you. And when the hammer comes, it’s going to be hammering hard and all through the night, over and over…
I’m not going to dance around here: If you ask me, Glenn Beck wouldn’t mind if one of his crazy viewers took his “hammering” talk to mean more than that.
