Ricky Santorum hates name-calling so much that he called out Willard Romney for his negative ads:
Rick Santorum from a video posted by CNN today:
“These elite snobs” who “look down their nose at you.”
Nope, no name-calling there.
By the way, trying to save Medicare recipients from the GOP goal of killing it isn’t what I would call snobby.
Rick Santorum: Hypocridiot O’ The Day.
As you recall from my previous post about Allen West, it’s pretty obvious that he’s heavily into the War On Women. I wrote that, IMHO, he feels threatened by strong females. Think Progress has more proof of his misogyny:
And of course, he emailed a full-on vile assault to Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, who said to CNN’s Wolf Blitzer.
“I was surprised that he sent that to my personal email, and email he didn’t previously have.”
“He clearly is feeling the pressure. If he can’t handle that pressure, can’t handle being called out in debate on the House floor, he probably should change his position.”
West spokeswoman Angela Sachitano doubled down, saying it was Wasserman Schultz who should do the apologizing. Sachitano strenuously denied that West had apologized to Wasserman Schultz and even denied what he’d told Huffington Post.
“In fact, we’re waiting on an apology from her,” Sachitano said.
Fun fact: Allen West lives in Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s district, not his own. He should apologize for that, too.
Allen West, what is it exactly that you have against strong women? (and seniors, the ill, the poor, the middle class, American workers, and civility)
Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman-Schultz said this:
And Allen West responded with a nasty email saying this, via Ben Smith:
Look, Debbie, I understand that after I departed the House floor you directed your floor speech comments directly towards me. Let me make myself perfectly clear, you want a personal fight, I am happy to oblige. You are the most vile, unprofessional and despicable member of the US House of Representatives. If you have something to say to me, stop being a coward and say it to my face, otherwise, shut the heck up. Focus on your own congressional district!
And that was just for starters.
This from the same despicable thug who had my friend and radio host Nicole Sandler (scroll for a series of posts about this) arrested for committing democracy by asking a question at one of his not-town hall meetings.
Be proud, GOP. He’s on your team.
Sometimes I get to the point where the story I’m reading is so same-ol’ that I end up focusing on one or two mindless excerpts to share with you. The GOP hypocridiots’ little one-liners are often oddly inane and infantile, and stand out because they truly represent who the Republicans are in a very succinct and laughable way:
A spokesman for House Speaker John Boehner claimed Tuesday that Sen. Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) told “fairy tales” in his floor speech Tuesday morning regarding budget negotiations.
The email to reporters was titled “Sen. Chuck ‘Aesop’ Schumer and His Fables.”
Aesop Schumer? Really? That’s so ridiculous it makes PeeWee Herman look mature by comparison, and reduces The Boehner spokesman’s accusations to bratty neener-nanneritude.
Or maybe he was just projecting.
The story behind the nonsense is at The Hill.
Is there anything stupid, dumb, ugly or evil they haven’t been compared to? Via Newshounds.
