Quickie– Missouri GOP leader: Voter registration at protests is “disgusting”


quickie time missouri

Today’s Missouri Quickie:

Via the St. Louis Post-Dispatch:

Missouri Republican Party Executive Director Matt Wills denounced voter registration efforts amid continued protests in Ferguson, calling it “disgusting.”

“If that’s not fanning the political flames, I don’t know what is,” Wills told Breitbart News, a conservative website, Monday.

He also called the actions “completely inappropriate.”

These blah people clearly don’t know their place, right Patriot Matt? How dare they legally and rationally try to use their voices in more ways than one!

That was today’s Quickie. Was it good for you?


Here Ya’ Go GOP-Tea … Pay For Palin


Palin embarrassMINTS

Will there be a Putin Cam, Live from her porch?

The rumors were true. The Tundra Twit Sarah Palin has launched her own lame stream of media. 9.95$ a month.

Did she not have Op-rah level cable network dough? No high rolling investors? Facebook wouldn’t let her stream video that poorly produced? Or would that have been selling out to the lame mainstream media that she wants to be so clearly separate from?

That’s the Problem With Palin … all questions, no good answers.

For whatever coco-loco reasons, half-Governor Sarah Palin has birthed The Sarah Palin Channel, or SPC for mocking purposes. Oh, and it truly is special.


MSNBC had some reporting on the venture.

“Are you tired of the media filters? Well, I am! I always have been. So we’re going to do something about it,” Palin said in the video introduction. “Together, we’ll go beyond the sound bites and cut through the media’s politically correct filter.”

Palin announced the website late Sunday, describing the website as both an alternative to the mainstream media and a digital home for all things Palin. In her announcement, she derided the media for their bias.

Now you can subscribe for a year to save enough bucks to get a few big gulps for the kids, it’s only 99$ for a whole year of Sarah interviewing public figures foolish enough to stream with her, a recriminating national debt counter, and for the edification (does she think Bill O’Reilly’s words are too hard?) of all, a SPC Word of the Day.

Sunday’s offering was ‘rectitude’. SPC must do Formal Sundays.


John McCain had darned well better have sunk some cash into this thing, he ought to be paying as long and hard as we are for unleashing this thing on the Lower 48. Now she’s on the Intertubez 24/7!! Damn You McCain.

Here’s her exciting announce video. Apologies.

So apparently that home shopping network endeavor tanked? Saturday Night Live usually gets it right.

See … SNL predicted a long, long time ago that she had aspirations to be a white Op-rah. They do usually nail it. Hope you didn’t mind the gratuitous commentary, LiberalViewer does some good stuff on the Youtubes, h/t to him and his silky sarcasm.

GOP Digs Deep Hole In Their Heads


digging holes

When I was a kid, the joke when you were bored was to go outside and dig a hole. If you dug deep enough you’d come up in China. And as kids, I have to say everyone in my neighborhood at one time or another gave it a go. Why not? We all loved Chinese food.

Before long we’d get a few feet deep and then get tired and give up. We were, after all, kids and we needed something to amuse ourselves with on that “boring” Saturday afternoon.

Now we come to adulthood. Congress was bored, waiting for the next election and too lazy to work during the remainder of their terms. So they took a shovel and started digging. The plot of land they chose was marked Obamacare.

So, we find the Tea Party led excavators digging away, digging away. Suddenly, they damage a water pipe, (the government shutdown), and they find themselves not only knee deep in water, but hot water. With the public.

One solution is to stop digging and scamper out before you’re swallowed up and drown. Another is to grab a hold to the life raft that’s suddenly appeared — the approaching debt ceiling and ride it to shore.

Or… The wackadoo digging club could try reaching a rescue by digging even deeper and faster, getting below the water. The risks are greater but what lies underneath the H2O could be even greater. It might even be better than China. It could be Shangri-La. Not sure what kind of food they serve there, but I gotta believe it’s great.

Two main choices, swim to shore while they can (passing the clean CR on government spending) or grab a hold of the debt denying diggers and their newest ring leader Paul Ryan and keep digging faster and deeper. And hope.

Here’s what knucklehead Wisconsin Representative Ryan has prescribed, reported the Washington Post:

The Wisconsin congressman is rallying conservatives against a Senate plan to fund the government and raise the debt ceilingthe Washington Post reported on Saturday.

The plan, proposed by Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine), would fund the government through March and raise the debt ceiling through January.

Ryan’s main concern appears to be delaying the health care law’s individual mandate, but ThinkProgress points out that Ryan also emphasized the need to give employers the ability to deny birth control coverage based on moral or religious reasons.

Paul Ryan is now back to fighting the Obamacare law after he was and then wasn’t doing that. This is certainly a contemporary Faye Dunaway moment from Chinatown.

Evelyn Mulwray: It’s the debt ceiling.
[Gittes slaps Evelyn]
Jake Gittes: I said I want the truth!
Evelyn Mulwray: It’s Obamacare…
Evelyn Mulwray: It’s the debt ceiling…
Evelyn Mulwray: Obamacare, Obamacare.
[More slaps]
Jake Gittes: I said I want the truth!
Evelyn Mulwray: It’s the debt ceiling AND it’s Obamacare!

And as the Republican parties, both of them, are contemplating what to do, they’re continuing to dig. They refuse to fund the government and pass an increased debt ceiling. They even refuse to admit they don’t even know what they want.

But certainly with Senator Collins plan there was the room for negotiation. And also, this is a Senate plan, not a House plan. Why is House member Ryan trying to scuttle the life raft when after all is said and done, the vessel was one of his own design. That thing called the Ryan Budget. Remember that, Paul?

Obvious to anybody but the fringes, the sequester numbers are not workable, but could sustain things for a short period. It’s a possible way to go, but also not the preferred. Yet its a step in the right direction and there’s no gun to anyone’s head.

The actual way to go is pass a clear CR and get the government back up running at full power. Stop punishing the people for the Republican’s political games.

Christians to the lions

This is similar to tossing the Christians to the lions for the Roman’s entertainment. That civilization had a rise and FALL. Stop today’s Romans, the Republican Party, who are trying to bring us down again.
