“The keynote speaker at the Democratic National Convention this year was forcible rapist, Bill Clinton.”
Did you catch the audience reaction? Everything from gasps and ooohs to laughter and applause. Yes, you all heard it, many in the audience expressed their approval of Coulter accusing former President Bill Clinton of forcible rape, loudly and clearly.
So tasteful. So family valuesy. So rational. Add that to Sarah Palin and Jeb Bush commenting on the failures of their fellow Republicans and it is crystal clear that this party is in total disarray, and that CPAC has allowed them to strut their deranged stuff for the whole world to see.
Additionally, I’m sure rape victims everywhere (not to mention the Clintons) got a real kick out of Ann’s little remark. Of course, she’d deny that there’s a GOP war on women (or anything else, for that matter), but she’s there for the attention and book sales, not political correctness. Sensitivity and taste have nothing to do with her self-serving agenda.
Coulter’s oral flatulence urped up so many offensive things that I lost count. I will not post the entire video (nor did I watch it), so you’ll have to find it for yourselves; but if you do, make sure you have some Valium and/or a good stiff drink and/or some Pepto Bismol handy.
Garry Trudeau covers the GOP, Willard M. Romney, and the Big Dog all in one strip.
Per Doonesbury, after they finish whatever it is they did in public life, GOPers immediately retreat to their safe corporate universe. Mitt made a beeline to a board, other Republicans make beelines to corporations and fancy schmancy golf courses, and Democrats? They make an effort to connect to people and do some good, but apparently tick everyone off in the process.
But Bill Clinton? He’s an equal opportunity entertainer.
And then when the original dog president, Bill Clinton, appeared to introduce Best Picture nominee Lincoln, Amy followed up in her best Leslie Knope mode with a breathless, “That was Hillary Clinton‘s husband!”
“Jeep is reopening in China ’cause they’ve made so much money here, they can afford to do it. And they are going on with their plans here.”
As President Clinton confirmed, the Romney ad is “the biggest load of bull in the world.”
See the new Obama ad responding to Team Willard’s here: Rep. Jason Chaffetz claims Romney auto bailout ad that’s filled with lies is “100% correct & accurate.” Team Obama responds.
President Bill Clinton:
“The stuff some folks are saying about President Obama sound kind of familiar. The same people said my ideas destroyed jobs—they called me every name in the book.”
“Well we created 22 million new jobs and turned deficits into surpluses.”
“President Obama’s got it right. We should invest in the middle class, education and innovation. And pay down our debt with spending restraint and asking the wealthy to pay a little more. Sound familiar?”
