Sweet Schadenfreude! Via.
Yeah, and they love their Obama phones too, don’t they Mittens? Via.
Makes perfect sense considering how toxic she was in her own contest.
Every contestant who has correctly answered clues about Minnesota’s controversial Congresswoman failed to win their match including the latest in the Teen Tournament on Friday
For the fourth time since launching her 2012 presidential campaign, Minnesota Republican Congresswoman Michele Bachmann’s name came up as part of the clue on the syndicated game show Jeopardy!
And on each of these four occasions, the contestant to ring in and provide the correct answer (that is, question) demonstrating their Bachmann knowledge failed to win the match.
On Friday – during the third quarterfinal game of the annual Teen Tournament – the $2,000 clue in a ‘Double Jeopardy’ category called, “113th Congress,” read:
“Rep. Michele Bachmann says she formed this caucus to get Congress back to obeying the Constitution.”
Seventeen year old high school senior Olivia Hummer from Covina, California rang in and correctly asked, “What is the Tea Party?”
Farewell, you brought much joy into the Democrats hearts! Added- Just heard from my “sources”** that Mitt is just riding up and down in his car elevator, swigging buttermilk and sobbing softly.
BRYAN, Ohio — Andre Cassagnes, the inventor of the Etch A Sketch toy that generations of children drew on, shook up and started over, has died in France, the toy’s maker said.
Cassagnes died Jan. 16 in a Paris suburb at age 86, said the Ohio Art Co., based in Bryan in northwest Ohio. The cause wasn’t disclosed Saturday.
Then an electrical technician, Cassagnes came upon the Etch A Sketch idea in the late 1950s when he peeled a translucent decal from a light switch plate and found pencil mark images transferred to the opposite face, the Toy Industry Association said.
Ohio Art saw his idea at the Nuremberg Toy Fair in 1959. The toy, with its gray screen, red frame and two white knobs that are twisted back and forth to create drawings, was launched in 1960 and became the top seller that holiday season. More than 100 million have been sold worldwide since.
Though passed over in popularity for video games and gadgets, the toy has a steady market, the company has said. It got a big jump in sales after Etch A Sketch was featured in the first two “Toy Story” movies, and Ohio Art capitalized on a much-publicized gaffe by a Mitt Romney aide during last year’s presidential election, who was asked about his candidate’s views during the primary season versus the general election.
** “Sources” just equate to the voices in my head, but hey, at least I’m honest about it!
OH, he was their working man hero he was! Along with HalfTermGov Sparkly Caribou Huntress, they were going to remake the American Political scene in their own images, scores and scores of chaw chewing, serial birthing, gun cradling 10th grade drop outs. A Vision for the future! h/t Wonkette.
COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Joe the Plumber isn’t Joe the Congressman.
Samuel “Joe” Wurzelbacher lost his bid Tuesday for a U.S. House seat in northern Ohio.
Veteran Democrat Marcy Kaptur beat the Republican in his first attempt to win public office.
Wurzelbacher became an overnight sensation during the presidential campaign four years ago and a favorite of conservatives after questioning then-candidate Barack Obama about economic policies.
Republicans recruited the Toledo-area man to run Congress, but he faced an uphill battle taking on the longest serving Democratic woman in the House in a Democrat-friendly district**.
