Just one more example flowering away on the growing dungheap of xenophobic and self-centered GOP.Tea credos. The Regressive Right Extremists need a refresher course in NOT jumping the shark.

Then, there's this trophy-winner who is also a woman [hate that] … a Lipton Brigadier sort of Republican embarrassment. In Iowa. Where else. aq
Iowa Republican: Immigrant Children May Be “Highly Trained” Muslim Terrorists, is an eye opener from Addicting Info.

Who were those people who used to picket so eruditely? Right To Lifers were once the ironic and naive designation. More Dick Morris, less William F. Buckley, in the current rendition of the Party of Nope.

An excerpt made salient points.

Why are conservatives so intent on portraying these kids as gang members, terrorists, drug smugglers, etc.? It’s so very simple. They’ve allowed their racism to completely override any other considerations. The idea of allowing even this small amount of brown skinned children into the country fills them with a visceral loathing. This is “their” country meaning it’s a “white” country and every nonwhite child that comes here threatens the status quo just a little more.

But, conservatives also like to pretend that they love Jesus and that America is a Christian nation.

It's going to become known as The Grand Ole' Party of the Preposterous.

Chris #Christie finally admits that he supports Hobby Lobby decision

chris christie squawk box hobby lobby

Chris Christie on whether he agreed with the the Hobby Lobby decision by the Supreme Court, on July 1 on CNBC:

"Who knows? ... Why should I give an opinion on whether they're right or wrong?"

How straightforward of him. What confidence! Way to take a stand, Governor Hubris. Dance around the issues much?

"The fact is that when you're an executive, your Supreme Court makes a ruling and you've got to live with it unless you can get the legislative body to change the law or change the Constitution. The point is: Why should I give an opinion as to whether they were right or wrong? At the end of the day, they did what they did. That's now the law of the land."

Now here's Chris Christie on whether he agreed with the the Hobby Lobby decision by the Supreme Court on July 17, at a meet and greet at MJ's Restaurant in Marion, Iowa (key word: Iowa):

Christie, responding to a Cedar Rapids man at the event:

"Do I support the Supreme Court's decision in the Hobby Lobby case? I do."

Well that only took two and a half weeks. How blunt and direct of him. Way to go, Gov. Panderer! Oh, and way to appeal to women. What a leader. I wonder how many times he licked his finger before putting it in the air to check who would donate to his 2016 presidential campaign the political wind direction.

HuffPo:

Thursday was the first time Christie had expressed his view on the decision. In fact, a day after the Supreme Court ruled, he told a CNBC host that he would not be sharing his opinion at all.

So Governor Rude-y McArrogant flip-flopped. Who does he think he is, Marco Rubio? Willard Romney? A dolphin?

Sen. Grassley's Staff Gets Nabbed In His Own Investigation

FacebookTwitterRedditDiggStumbleUponTumblrLinkedInPinterestEmailShare

The SEC lawsuit alleges that the House staffer, Brian Sutter, spoke with a lobbyist -- identified by the Journal as Mark Hayes - - who happens to be a former aide to Grassley -- on the day of the leak.

Oopsy. Looks like Grassley not only found his leaker, the dude worked for him. Now Grassley may have to recuse himself from the hearings because he himself might be called as a witness, or even more concerning, as a part of the insider trading conspiracy scandal itself.

Iowa Sen. candidate smiles, says, "I'm going to use my Glock. To blow your balls off."

bob quast glock shoot balls off

The "Independent" candidate above is smiling because he's proud, proud, proud of himself for threatening to use his substitute penis Glock to "blow your balls off." Apparently his pretend penis doesn't want you to have a real one. What a guy.

One can't help but feel welcomed in by his warm, inviting style, what with that beckoning smile, sparkling tooth glint, and the gleaming deadly weapon he fondles so lovingly.

You can watch him strut his Glocky stuff in the nasty, sarcastic little campaign video below, in which he confuses having "balls" with having rational thoughts. He must have had a forgotten about all those innocent children (and adults) who have been negligently and/or intentionally Second Amendmented to death:

Cuckoo!

TPM (more at the link):

Iowa Independent Senate candidate Bob Quast has a new ad out in which he waves around a Glock gun and threatens to "blow your balls off."

The ad, tuned to cheery music, is called "#GotBalls Vote for Bob Quast" and features Quast, a long-shot candidate in the race, arguing about term limits and the Second Amendment. [...]

According to the Des Moines Register he was planning to run as a Democrat but was unable to get the necessary number of signatures to get on the ballot.

Allow me to be one of many to applaud Dems for having the presence of mind to not accept Bob Quast as a party member.
