Voter Suppression Continues to Confound and Infuriate non-Republicans

FacebookTwitterRedditDiggStumbleUponTumblrLinkedInPinterestEmailShare

Once in a while old Tweety, aka Chris Matthews, knocks one toward the cheap seats, and Wednesday was one of those episodes of 'Hardball'.

I have the biggest crush on Fugelsang, full disclosure. I married for humor, but hotness was also included.

Here he and Joy Reid helped Matthews with a large and thorny issue,

Then to compliment the Tweety goodness, Ezra Klein subbing for Chris Hayes got the actual author, the hard hitting fellow who did the Voter ID Study that's sweeping to great acclaim. And horror.

From MSNBC:

What are voter ID laws even for?
A new investigation finds just 31 credible incidents of voter impersonation over 14 years and one billion ballot

Well that's post-Tea Party DefCon Amurrika, right thar' … we didn't think we as a country could Go Dumber than we did in 2000 for an endless, ubër-mockable, embarrassing, humiliating, eight years o' Dubbayhah.

We are SO better than this as a country. A democratic country. We supposedly monitor less worthy cow entries elections with a spyglass, but our own citizens face voter impression.

Humiliating, is what these efforts are - embarrassing and shameful also come to mind. It seems our GOP, The Tea Years, is bent on having only old white men and their Stepford Spouses count at the polls. Truly heart-sickening.

Biggest Gaffe Ever At MSNBC?

FacebookTwitterRedditDiggStumbleUponTumblrLinkedInPinterestEmailShare

Lindsay Lohan

In the words of of Belle Carroca (Lanie Kazan) in the film classic, My Favorite Year, "This I did not even know."

And I'm willing to bet, MSNBC didn't know it either.

Joy Reid needed smelling salts after collapsing on stage hearing this. Reports are that she's fully recovered and won't miss any additional work at MSNBC.

MSNBC Fact checkers? Can you please clean up the mess in front of the White House lawn. Her name is Chris Jansing and she needs some schooling. Oh, and a washcloth to remove the egg from her face.

It seems the mush-headed thinking reporter, Jansing (who must have taken too much of her medication before going on air) claims she was talking about the President's father, not the President.

But if you hear her go on, she's absolutely talking about the President as she refers to his election and his expectations he'd do great things for Africa after his election sure make this reporter look awfully unprepared and quite ignorant.

The President's Kenyan father was never elected to anything as far as anyone fact checking can find. Quite a gaffe from a woman who will most certainly be the laughing stock of MSNBC for years to come. Her next assignment will probably be getting someone coffee at the news outlet, not reporting from the White House.

Ann Coulter Can Limbo Low, Low Low - is she part vampire?

FacebookTwitterRedditDiggStumbleUponTumblrLinkedInPinterestEmailShare

anncoulter
Ann Coulter  totally makes me want to get the excuse for a woman alone in a room and determined if she's pure evil or just .924%

 

"Obama's breaking the law!", brayed a riled and rigid Coulter.

Do you suspect that Ann Coulter is part vampire?

There's the frigid coldness, the love of going directly to the jugular, a taste for raw red meat and that bizarre habit of rocking a little black cocktail dress on morning shows. As Kathy Griffin is fond of pointing out, Coulter needs a long stay in  Personality Rehab.

anncoultermiserable

Coulter's hatred of Obama has never been disguised, in fact her miserable disposition is wide open to the suffering public. Have a gander at her in prime Fvx form.

Can't the president just Executive Order her ass out of the country she pretends to defend, so political  deportation would rid us of the thorny,  delusional hater of the first water??

That would be an historically delightful moment for liberals -- and probably the old-school moderate GOPpers.

Of course La Coulter is one hard-core, foul-mouthed,  anti-abortion RWNJ.

coulter

The Conservatives like to spin the issue so that it seems as if librul wimmen treat abortions like they would hair appointments, when nothing could be further from the truth. And, of course, they’re all tied up with the abstinence-only crowd, because they also want to prevent people from using commonsense methods that can prevent pregnancy in the first place.

Annnnd … Coulter must really dislike anything associated with sex … despite the mini dresses and flirtatious manner when on Fvx Noise.

100 Years Ago This Summer, the Great War Began - Has Putin Taken Us Back?

FacebookTwitterRedditDiggStumbleUponTumblrLinkedInPinterestEmailShare

obamaputin

Noted historian Jon Meacham proposed just that, going even further to speculate that we are once again, as a country, purportedly Leaders of the Free World now, re-engaged in The Big Game.

And Putin never looked happier.

No progressive wants to hear this. It's an arguable victory for the hopeful Military Industrial Complex fiends, never mind a clear throwback to Ron Ron Reagan's Star Wars daze.

steve-King-Of-Kings-210x300

Maddow, per usual, had a revelatory conversation with Nina Kruscheva about the Regressive Right and Putin headlines.

However, Putin isn't making it easy to try to have a different viewpoint from Fvx Nation and give the guy a slim chance. No progressive wants to be on the same side of the soapbox as Limpbaugh, Hannity and Coulter, either.

And lawd knows that soon we will all have another stellar new media site to muddy up with lots of liberal traffic … La Palin is launched … an Online News Channel.

Of her own.

Like Op-rah.

But more like the Anti-Oprah.

 

Have a gander at Here Ya' Go GOP-Tea … Pay For Palin

Putin

Can we blame Putin for that too? I don't know why not, they have so much in common and she can practically see him undressing from her vaunted A-las-kan porch. And you know as the General Election gets closer, the Regressive Right wants Putin to be as scary a foe as possible … the GOP think they win every security and defense contest.

From Ronan Farrow's messnbc daily roster.

Let's prove the fools wrong. Can you imagine Ted Cruz making foreign policy decisions with Putin also a president he has to interact with?

Dr. Seuss ain't going to cover those situations, Cruz. Or *GASP* Palin herself, there are already PAC's and this channel is nothing but publicity.

Eric Cantor Pulls Off a semi-Palin, K Street Needs Him STAT

FacebookTwitterRedditDiggStumbleUponTumblrLinkedInPinterestEmailShare

Cantor

Cantor, I hope there's a spot open at Liberty College … those who turn out not to be the RWNJ's cup o'tea tend to zoom right down there, and it IS in Virginia … but the lobbyist alternative is WAY more income friendly - and K Street loves 'em some ex-Congressionals. And they pay accordingly.

Cantor has also had the extremist balls to demand  a costly special election from Virginia Governor Terry McCauliffe, the unexpected new Governor of olde Virginia.

Something tells me that Guv'nah McAuliffe isn't heartbroken to wave him off to the private sector.

I quit

From MSNBC's Ed Shultz:

Ralph Nader and Doug Heye,former spokesperson for Rep. Eric Cantor (R-VA), a Cantor ex-staffer now, was the non-wonky but deeply funny GOP guest on Bill Maher Friday night. Great material! From Realtime HBO/Raw Story/Mediate.

And some Overtime with Ralph Nader and Doug Heye, former spokesperson for Rep. Eric Cantor (R-VA).

Cantor coverage at The Carnival's archives, here at this link.

One of the best articles about Quitter Cantor (did he conference call La Palin for quitter tutoring?) came from The Federalist, of all places:

Eric Cantor just announced that he is quitting his House seat on August 18. Why did Cantor quit? There are three reasons.

1) He’s given up on the lame duck session. The last week of this legislative session has been no fun whatsoever for House Republicans, and there’s no sign the lame duck session is going to be any better.

2) Cantor has checked out. For at least the past ten years.

DNR

3) To start the lobbying ban clock five months early. The House bars former members from lobbying for one whole year. So by quitting early, Cantor can move into his new K Street digs in August of 2015 instead of January 2016. So on behalf of the 7th District, let me bid Eric Cantor goodbye—and good riddance.

Smells-Like-Bullshit_o_99704

Eric Cantor needs a whopper of a Farewell Party from Fvx Nation … at least he was an Idjit of long standing, a couple Congressional decades (from hell) will scamper off and merrily retire with him.

When The Federalist turned on Cantor, they went for the jugular. Like a True Blood maneuver.

Couldn't happen to a better man.

President Obama Met With Central American Leaders - Fvx Nation Freaks

FacebookTwitterRedditDiggStumbleUponTumblrLinkedInPinterestEmailShare

lobotomy

Oh would some power the giftie gie us, to see ourselves as others see us.

~ Robert Burns

screamnowjo0

When you get down, way, way  underneath whichever gratuitous level of bullshite the Regressive Right is forking up this month, you can spy the real issues that need addressing at our borders: key economic reasons.

Said issues are frequently buried under whatever red-meat frenzy is currently being spotted and hyped by the Fox Noise Hysteria Periscope and whomever Morning Schmoe chooses to add frothing from over at messnbc mornings.

Elizabeth Warren, for good reason a Progressive It Candidate, has been a vocal champion of the kind of action President Obama took this week … and that's why so many of us champion her.

Quick!

This thoughtful president chose not to suit up in combat gear, climb into a helicopter with a presumably-armed Governor-General Good Hair Perry and get his picture taken in staccato unison by photographers there to snap him … NOT the humanitarian crisis at hand.

It was an Obama decision:  pragmatic, active yet not drastic, and assumes that we have equal partners in these massive matters of bubbles, booms, recessions and the flow of humanity they attract, then throw back from our shores.

It also makes sense. Which is anathema to a Regressive Right held hostage by Palin, Hannity and Limpbaugh's Tea Party.

anti_fox_news_cap

The GOP is proven to be hideous at paying for things, only Obama and Clinton brought deficits down and got us out of conflicts, more than into them. The Right became hysterical in extremis when they realized they had blown the entire cookie jar on Defense and Terrorism and reacted with every xenophobic, self-serving iota of their fully loaded (shekels and bullets galore) selves … it must be communism!

Cuz … Putin.

Then Putin has the annoying and extremely untimely nerve to ratchet up the pissing contest that Reagan is credited by his fervent idolizers for having somehow 'won'.

The GOP decided to formally adopt Israel from sometime after Ron Ron's star peaked until their Rapture … surely, we must be in Armageddon now, gauging the shrill hysteria and panic over at Fvx Nation.

reagan obsolete

In the meantime, here's a surprisingly edifying few minutes from Morning Joe Schmoe -- there was a substantive look at what is happening at the borders, and why President Obama's hosting of the Central American leaders is significant on many fronts. From MSNBC.

And for your compare and WTF(??!!??) moment, here's how the delusional crew at Fox Noise responded to the sitting president doing something practical and statesmanlike by meeting with the leaders of Honduras, El Salvador and Guatomala.

[As always, complimentary Orvis waders and Method™ Antibacterial Troll Spray by the front door.]

Hannity, still high from his own trip to Texass, let Governor Good Hair Rick Perry rant at will.

The Journal Editorial Report, featuring WSJ's Paul Gigot, required three Fvx slash Wall Street Journal pundits to bash President Obama while giving Perry and Paul the Younger all kinds of love for their alleged Feck.

All Rifled Up: Extremely Militant Militia On the Move at the Borders

FacebookTwitterRedditDiggStumbleUponTumblrLinkedInPinterestEmailShare

borderchild

José Díaz-Balart hit another home run of stories the GOP would just love to keep ignoring, the cream of the blissfully  ignorant. This time with coverage of extreme militia types all riled and rifled up that their worksites were flooded with opportunities to bask again in the warm light of conservative love.

Seems like after Fvx News sent Hannity to the border to jimmy up some buzz with Governor Goodhair Rick Perry, so they could do aghast in stereo for the entertainment of their prime neocon herds.

Have a gander.

And speaking of the crisis on our borders, some mighty fine discussion below of the Cockamamie Congressional inability to function … never mind the urgency President Obama and activist groups have tried to convey.

bushborders

José Díaz-Balart has a great convo with the San Antonio Express’ Kolten Parker, a veteran of this coverage, about the Extreme Militant border militia:
