Paul Bremer Gets Reamed A New A**hole By Erin Burnett

Burnett Bremer

Sometimes watching someone squirm makes us feel uncomfortable. But when they bring it on themselves, not so much. CNN's Erin Burnett had Iraq Warlord and Bush confident and liar-in-chief Paul Bremer on her show last night. He didn't last long. A bob, a weave and then Burnett landed blow after blow against this fraud masquerading as a man. Without any doubt, he's lucky Obama didn't prosecute him for war crimes and treason against this country. And how does he repay this generosity? He blames Obama for what he (Bremer) left behind.

If you want to see the Thrilla in Vanilla, The Battle of the B's, or The Bremer's Bash, here you go-- front row seats. Better put on some plastic clothing. Erin draws blood early. Watch the cut over Bremer's eye when Erin quickly attacks on this CNN clip:

"People, a lot of people are watching you right now and they're —they're hearing you give your ideas of what to do. And they're saying, 'but aren't you the guy who got us in this mess?'"

"Look, you're the guy who ran Iraq for George W. Bush."

Mary Barra-ly Telling The Truth About GM Related Deaths

Sometimes people just aren't the right people to ask when something goes wrong. But in the case of GM and the multiple deaths attributed to a faulty ignition switch design, you'd think the government had found the right person to quiz.

There was an apparent `cover-up and to get to the bottom of this, General Motors tabbed the CEO of the company to come in and answer official inquiries by both the House and Senate committees into what happened, how it happened, when the company knew about it and what steps did they take to correct the situation?

Simple enough questions. And Mary Barra, the GM CEO, should be ideally suited to answer these questions. That is, if GM had nothing to hide. Sadly, they do and she did. She showed up to the Senate hearings and played the typical ignorance game -- she defended her lack of knowledge in this deadly issue by playing dumb. Truth is, she's anything but. She claimed that she is new to her job and she needs time to look for the answers. Currently she just doesn't know enough to comment on her company's potential criminality nor their alleged cover-up.

That wasn't good enough for committee chairperson, Sen. Claire McCaskill, (D-Missouri). She got right to the point to tear apart Barra's 'neophyte status' defense. Checking out Barra's resume, which McCaskill does so deftly, you can see why her "I wasn't aware of a problem" defense" was shred into itty-bitty pieces.

It's time for GM to stop lying to buy time and confess to their liability. Thirteen families have been devastated by their actions. We Americans have put a lot of money into big corporations to save them. Maybe they should start coming clean with us on their actions.

If the American public is going to subsidize you, (hear that big oil), you better come honest and prepared to our elected officials when summoned or face the consequences next time you look for us to give you any help.

Koch Brothers Caught Again In a Lie -- What's Else Is New?

The Koch brothers put millions of dollars into the anti-Obamacare campaign, and here's what they came up with for all those bucks.

It sure does sound convincing -- heart tugging. Gut wrenching. Here's poor Julie Boonstra painstakingly confessing that she was diagnosed with leukemia five years ago. Then, after Obamacare her health insurance plan was canceled. "Now, the out-of-pocket costs are so high, it's unaffordable," she says in this commercial. It sounds like this lady's gonna die.

What's a poor afflicted woman supposed to do? Damn that Obamacare.

Well, before we do anymore damning, let's examine this a little more closely. I'm sure the Koch brothers won't mind. Thanks to some fact checking at HuffPo:

Before her plan was canceled, Boonstra was paying a $1,100 monthly premium. That's $13,200 a year, without adding out-of-pocket expenses like co-pays and prescription drugs. But under her new plan, the Blue Cross Premier Gold, Boonstra's premiums are down to $571 a month, and out-of-pocket costs are capped at $5,100. That's a maximum annual expense of $11,952 a year.

She's actually saving $1,248 a year with Obamacare. Now why would Ms. Boonstra mislead us like that? It couldn't be political, could it?

Julie Boonstra

Boonstra told The Detroit News she had never been politically active before joining the anti-Obamacare campaign. The newspaper reported her ex-husband, Mark Boonstra, had served as chair of the Washtenaw County GOP, and was appointed by Gov. Rick Snyder (R) to the Michigan Court of Appeals in 2012.

Gotta take her at her word -- for as far as I could throw her. She twisted the situation with her illness, using it to drum up sympathy while lying through her teeth. And then she continues to lie saying she has never been politically active while her husband has been the beneficiary of GOP political appointments. Talk about splitting hairs.

Thanks Koch brothers for another enlightening episode of "My GOP addiction to Koch." As Rev. Al would say, "Nice try, but we gotcha!"
