    How funny...or sad....or tragic...who knows after these past few years? ...the GOP are tired of the cancer they invited to infect the party...


    Karl Rove, fresh off the multi-million dollar disaster that was 2012, has launched a new initiative, The New York Times reported Saturday. Known as the Conservative Victory Project, the group, a spin-off of Rove’s American Crossroads, will help recruit establishment Republicans, as well as defend Senate incumbents against challenges from more conservative candidates.

    The aim, in a nutshell, is to push back against the Tea Party and bring the GOP’s nominating process back under the control of the party’s Washington power-brokers. In recent cycles, Tea Party-backed Senate candidates have won the Republican nomination over more moderate GOPers, only to be defeated in the general election. In several cases—think of Todd Akin’s “legitimate rape” remarks—they’ve been done in thanks in part to campaign trail slip-ups that more seasoned candidates might have avoided.

    But the news has triggered a full-blown revolt among conservative activists, both inside and outside Washington.

    “Because of the bad results of the 2012 cycle, I kind of feel like we’re in a state of gang warfare,” Matt Kibbe, the president of FreedomWorks, a grassroots advocacy group aligned with the Tea Party movement, told MSNBC.com, adding: “The establishment is circling the wagons, and they’re trying to protect their own.”

    Kibbe argued that the the energy in today’s GOP comes from the very Tea Party-backed candidates, like Rand Paul and Mike Lee, that Rove has opposed in the past. “What Rove is proposing is a recipe for failure,” he said.


    Karl Rove was instrumental in creating this monster. Now it's got a mind of its own.

    It's hard to know how this will play out. The Tea Party is really just the re-branding of the far right of the Republican Party. But it may just be that the establishment made a mistake in doing that. They don't see themselves as Republicans anymore. They see themselves as a distinct movement that wants to explicitly run the Republican Party.

    The wingnuts have always had real power within their Party but they didn't know it. Now they do. And they have spent the last 30 years having people like Karl Rove rev them up and expand their egos into believing they represent a majority of Americans and have a responsibility to hew to their principles no matter what. It was a good way to market conservatism. But it was never true.


    WOW...anyone feeling like these guys are in a real life zombie movie, the teabaggers keep infecting every GOPer they can find, and keep feeding on the same victims they infected.

    Quote simplyirresistible:
    Quote OspreyGirl: This has got to be the most brilliant commentary that Bill Maher has done so far this year....absolutely SPOT ON!


    "Con men like Rush and Beck are one of the reasons the Republicans are in such dire straits today. Because they don’t care about winning elections. They care about separating rubes from their money. They’ve discovered there’s a fortune to be made by convincing a small portion of America under the illusion that they are always under attack from Mexicans, or ACORN, or Planned Parenthood, or gays, or takers, global warming hoaxers. It doesn’t matter. They don’t want a majority. They want a mailing list. A list of the kind of gullible Honey Boo Boos out there who think that there’s a war on Christmas, and that the socialist policies of our Kenyan president have been so disastrous that the end of our world is coming.
    I’m not exaggerating. Go to any right wing website, and you’ll see ads for prepper bags, and water purifiers, and survival seeds, also known as seeds. And for years, Beck, Hannity, and other radio hosts endorsed Goldline. A company that sales gold coins to frightened old people for twice what they’re worth. Why not just hogtie your audience and steal their disability checks? After all, we are talking about people who spend actual money on a children’s book by a fat adulterer and a peroxide blonde from another dimension.

    Glenn Beck has only 300,000 subscribers, so they’ll never be a majority, but it doesn’t matter. Maybe they can only vote once every two years, but they can buy the same book every three weeks. The exact same book over, and over, and over again. I don’t know being a Republican means having to have your faith recharged five times a day like Dick Cheney’s heart. Because there’s no comparable industry on the left devoted to separating liberals from their cash, unless you count Whole Foods."

    No truer words have ever been spoken! Maher is spot on.



    Nutjobs like Donald Trump hate guys like Maher because he exposes them for lascivious liars they truly are...and did you hear, Trump is suing Maher for $5M because he was able to 'prove' his mother didn't sleep with an orangutan to birth Trump!?!

    Ugh...how low can they go?


    No one will be surprised that Todd Kincannon, former Southern Carolina Republican Party chairman is tweeting racist nonsense. It's just that this racist nonsense is, even by conservative standards, pretty blatant and ugly.

    What you may not know about Todd Kincannon, however, is that he's been on a tear over Twitter's policy of suspending abusive users. He was abusing their algorithms to get people suspended on the left who he didn't care for. Of course, reality was something else entirely, because the algorithm didn't pay much attention to whether someone was liberal or conservative, and so people on all sides of the debate were suspended.


    Here is what he tweeted during the Super Bowl blackout:


    "It hasn't been this dark in the Superdome since all those poors occupied it during Hurricane Katrina."


    www.dailykos.com/story/2013/02/03/1184449/-Drunken-Conservative-Tweets#


    You just have to know that there is a special place in hell for a b@stard like him!


    Just when someone like him says the GOP needs to 'do more'
    to outreach to ethnicities and the LGBT crowd, right on cue comes a complete idiot that reveals what the GOP really thinks.

    They will continue to alienate the very groups they want to draw in because they are addicted to bigotry and cannot help themselves. It is a DISEASE.

    It is not the Republican party anymore. The true Americans have jumped that party and left it to all the heartless b@$7@rd$ who think being poor is a disease. If you find someone who don't care about anyone less fortunate than themselves, you are talking to someone calling themselves a Republican. I wish the great American presidents who where Republicans could let them know how much they are not like them.

    And...as if that Alabama nutjob who kidnapped that autistic child last week wasn't enough news from the 'land of the confederacy,' there is yet another Bama idiot making news today....something must be in the water down there...

    A Republican lawmaker in Alabama says that he wants to pursue a so-called "personhood" bill outlawing abortion rights for women because the Bible proves that a fetus "is life inside of a mother," but he's not sure if "aborted babies" are going to Heaven or Hell.

    In a recent interview with the Times-Journal, state Sen. Shadrack McGill lamented that "you can be charged up to $250,000 for destroying an eagle egg, but you can destroy babies in the womb?"

    McGill explained that his interpretation of Psalm 22 made it clear that life began at fertilization.

    "Just based on the Scripture alone, the Psalm that talks about God knowing us before he placed us in our mother’s womb, is enough for me to know that that is a life inside of a mother," he said.

    "So my question concerning aborted babies is, where do they go, heaven or hell?"

    State Sen. Phil Williams (R), who has sponsored "personhood" bills during the last two legislative sessions, recently told The Anniston Star that he was reluctant to bring it up again.

    Past bills had reportedly failed because many worried that they would have given rights to embyros created in fertility clinics, effectively banning in-vitro fertilization as well as some forms of contraception.

    "I sympathize with the folks who have had to go the expensive route of the in-vitro process, and thank God for that knowledge that the doctors possess," McGill opined to the Times-Journal. "My understanding of that process is they fertilize 10 eggs in a petri dish. Basically they take three of the strongest and insert those into the womb, into the mother, and pray for the best."

    "If the mother conceives, then what do you do with the seven remaining fertilized eggs?" he pointed out, adding that he had suggested that Williams reword the bill to include only "fertilization inside the mother’s womb."

    "And I never had peace about that," McGill admitted. “That’s what we tried and that failed.”

    The Republican lawmaker hoped that future legislation would force doctors to implant all fertilized eggs in the potential mother.

    “That union between the sperm and the egg is where life begins, and maybe where God places his spirit inside that child, so to speak,” McGill insisted. “Therefore, I would hope that the legislation that we push in the future would state that all the eggs fertilized need to be placed in the mother’s womb.”

    GOOD GRIEF!

    So here's my question for Gomer Lawmaker....do you hold yourself responsible for the souls of the children you see living in poverty, going to school hungry, living in housing projects or homeless shelters, having no access to decent computers/classrooms and safe school environments, living in a state such as Alabama that is fighting against the federal government's free healthcare that would give women and girls access to birth control methods, etc?

    What do you say to those souls, that you drive by, click your car doors shut whenever you see them on the street, stick your nose up in the air like they don't exist, and secretly harbor that they shouldn't have been born in the first place?

    What conversations are you having with God about anything in the Bible when you are selectively choosing who is worthy of God's grace based on a person's skin color, gender, wealth status, and political leanings, etc?

    Oh yeah...let me guess, while he's wondering where the souls of the aborted babies went to, he's redistricting poor neighborhoods to favor the Republican vote...and oh yeah, he believes that a woman's body has a way to 'shut that thing down' when she's holding her rapist's sperm...oh yeah, I see...how does he pull himself from such 'righteous' thoughts everyday?

    GTFOH!

    A bill introduced by nine Republican state lawmakers in Iowa on Wednesday would define abortion as “murder,” sending doctors and raped women who terminate pregnancies to jail.

    State Rep. Tom Shaw says that he authored House File 138 to protect human life, whether “you’re a zygote, an infant, a teenager or an adult.”

    The bill defines a “person” as “an individual human being, without regard to age of development, from the moment of conception, when a zygote is formed, until natural death.”

    “Murder includes killing another person through any means that terminates the life of the other person including but not limited to the use of abortion-inducing drugs,” the measure states without making any exceptions for rape or incest.

    Republican state Rep. Rob Bacon, who is co-sponsoring the bill, told the Ames Tribune that he wanted to “protect the life of the unborn” because “[t]here’s still some of us that believe life begins at conception.”

    During a Wednesday interview with Denver Bible Church pastor Bob Enyart, Shaw explained that defining a fertilized egg as a “person” in Iowa’s murder statute “just simplifies everything.”

    “So when anyone has any questions towards us — the war on women, are you doing this, are you doing that? — no, it’s a simple response,” he insisted. “We are only defining who a person is.”

    “There was a lot of concern with former bills about who would be charged, what would they be charged with… This puts it in the hands of county attorneys, just like any other murder investigation. A person is a person.”

    According to Democratic state Rep. Beth Wessel-Kroeschell, the new definition of murder would mean that women were jailed if they had an abortion after being raped or to save their own lives.

    “We’re talking about the victim of rape would go to prison along with her rapist,” she told the Tribune. “It’s very hard to understand the feeling behind it. It’s a health care issue, I mean, sometimes in order to save someone’s life a woman could possibly need an abortion. When we talk about being pro-life, my new question is ‘whose life?’”

    Planned Parenthood of the Heartland President Jill June called the effort to restrict abortion rights “the most extreme yet.”

    “This bill would imprison a woman and her doctor for attempting an abortion,” June said in a statement on Wednesday. “A victim of rape or incest would be forced to carry a pregnancy or be put in jail, just like her assailant. Extremists pushing this bill are blinded by their ideology to eliminate abortion, and do not realize how this bill could hurt women and families in our state.”

    Even if Shaw’s bill makes it out of committee, it would have virtually no chance to pass in Iowa’s Democratically-controlled Senate.





    Do they plan to start testing all women of childbearing age to determine when they become two people?

    Do they require the arrest of women who have a miscarriage and a full investigation as if it were murder?

    If a woman has the problem of repeat miscarriages, should she be jailed to prevent committing further murders?

    What about the percentage of zygotes that do not implant naturally?

    Will they test women every couple of weeks, catch zygotes and try to force them to implant?

    Will women get to start taking a tax deduction for a child at the moment of conception?

    Will pregnant women be allowed to drive in the car pool lane?
