National Journal’s Reid Wilson’s tweet snarking about birther Donald Trump’s irrational fixation on President Obama’s citizenship made me smile. Broadly.
Happy birtherday, Donald. Now go somewhere far, far away and do something constructive like keeping your mouth shut.
I have decided that the guy is just high all the time. h/t TPM.
Donald Trump, for one, said he plans to continue talking about what he calls “the place-of-birth issue.” (“I think the word ‘birther’ is a derogatory term, created by a certain group in the media,” he explained.)
We’re excited to welcome our new sponsor, Tees with Tude – teeswithtude.com. Tees with Tude is the subtle, smart, snarky tees and sweats web site inspired daily by postings from Twitter and Facebook, commentary from Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert, and stories from all areas of the mainstream media. They have a growing stable of over 2,400 designs that can be ordered on over 30 high-quality products. TPC’s favorites (so far) are here.
The Political Carnival receives a percentage of all sales made through our website, Facebook, and Twitter postings so order a t-shirt today and help support our daily operations. We’re about to move to a new, pricier, more efficient server, so every penny counts.
There is now a permanent ad in the sidebar to the right, so check them out!
We’ve got a whole section at Tees with ‘Tude that includes our logo for a tee shirt, featured tees of the week, with more coming soon. Have any ideas for a catchphrase or blurb to put on a tee shirt for TPC? Let us know, and if it’s a good fit (no pun), we’ll pass it along!
Who’s “attacking capitalism” now?
“He was a fund guy. He walked away with some money from a very good company that he didn’t create. He worked there. He didn’t create it. He’d buy companies, he’d close companies, he’d get rid of jobs, okay?”
“Donald Trump is a representative of the Romney campaign. Mr. Romney is raising money off of Donald Trump.”
Which just goes to show you that all the money in the world can’t buy you class.
But the best part was still Birther Trump informing everyone that Willard would “get rid of jobs.” The GOP candidate’s own fundraiser/spokesMittwit invalidated Willard nearly as effectively as he did to his very own self here.
