Sen. Grassley's Staff Gets Nabbed In His Own Investigation


The SEC lawsuit alleges that the House staffer, Brian Sutter, spoke with a lobbyist -- identified by the Journal as Mark Hayes - - who happens to be a former aide to Grassley -- on the day of the leak.

Oopsy. Looks like Grassley not only found his leaker, the dude worked for him. Now Grassley may have to recuse himself from the hearings because he himself might be called as a witness, or even more concerning, as a part of the insider trading conspiracy scandal itself.



Republicans Admission - Today There Is No Republican Party


going crazy

Well, some people are just plain party poopers. They're Donald or Debbie Downers when it comes to today's GOP. Need proof that the Red Party has gone off the deep end? Look at the reasons former Republican Governor Charlie Crist gives for his movement away from his former party.

Daily News America:

Former Florida Gov. Charlie Crist says he left the Republican Party and joined the Democrats because of racism.

"They're perceived now as being anti-woman, anti-immigrant, anti-minority, anti-gay, anti-education, anti-environment," Crist, who switched to the Democratic Party in 2012, told Fusion TV about the GOP. "I just wasn't comfortable."

Boy, that's an awful lot of "anti's" according to former Gov. Crist, who's not alone in that thinking. He's leading in the polls in Florida.

Further indications that the GOP has gone off the deep end and has nothing to offer America is their uniformed main target of Benghazi. It seems they've clearly lost the Obamacare wars and need something to rally their troops. And what better topic than a well-worn, already eight times investigated non-issue like an outpost in Libya? Talk about your beating a dead horse...

dead-horse gif

While Democrats are looking to take care of kitchen table and pocketbook issues like minimum wage, fair pay, non-discriminatory employment practices, long term unemployment and the biggie -- immigration reform -- the Repugnants are sticking with Benghazi.

The other day, on Morning Joe, Donny Deutsch  suggested that pocketbook issues weigh more heavily on voter's minds at the polls than Benghazi does. Republican CNBC anchor Brian Sullivan attempted to disagree, but in doing so, skewered himself and his affiliated party.

It's always fun to see people heap mud into the wind and have it blow back into their faces.

Over the past few days polling information is indicating that in the deeply Republican south, a number of Democrats are pulling even or ahead in their 2014 midterm election polling over GOP rivals. There's still a ways to go, but when you see Republican Brian Sullivan's rant above, you can start to see why. As the Benghazi hearings eventually commence, I think you'll see even more dissatisfaction with the Grand Old Party.

You can tell how desperate the GOP has become when they dispatch Karl Rove to go on the air and claim Democratic front runner Hillary Clinton has brain damage. Perhaps he should have his oversize head checked, because the words coming out of his mouth sure resemble the ramblings of a troubled, perhaps damaged mind.


Oklahoma GOP Has Gone Batsh*t Crazy, May Ban All Marriage



I'm sure we all know about spite -- we've either done something in that vein or have had it done to us. Well, the Republicans in Oklahoma are readying to chop off their noses to spite their face.

Only the Sooner State right-wing crazies could come up with something so silly and stupid that it makes you think there's going to be another land rush -- only this time to leave the Oklahoma territory. Get this, the state legislature is concerned about their same-sex marriage ban. Well, actually, they're one step ahead of that. They think their same-sex marriage ban will be challenged. To make sure no same-sex marriage happens in their fine state under any circumstances including federal/Supreme court findings, they're considering banning all marriage.

Think this is a Saturday Night Sketch? Well, it may become one, but first check out reality on

So Oklahoma, what's next? Will all of the children of "married" couples become bastards? Can't wait for you deal with this one.


Reince Priebus, RNC Prince of Fools, Pulls Out Secret Card

Dean Wormer, Animal House

Dean Wormer, Animal House

Oh, my. You don't cast shade on the GOP and think you'll get away with it. Not when it's run by a brain trust known as Reince Priebus.

The other day, a tweet of very questionable taste, with some uncalled for racial overtones, was sent out by MSNBC. It related to an upcoming Cheerios ad that featured a bi-racial family.  Below is the tweet and a follow-up


Maybe the rightwing (sic) will hate it, but everyone else will go awww: the adorable new #Cheerios ad w/ biracial family,” the tweet read.

The tweet was deleted and an apology was sent out from both MSNBC's Twitter account and executive editor Richard Wolffe, but Priebus wasn't satisfied.

Priebus circulated a memo on Thursday to announce that he was "banning all RNC staff from appearing on, associating with, or booking any RNC surrogates on MSNBC" until he received an apology from Phil Griffin.

Well, Griffin did the right thing. He not only issued apologies as well as making a personal phone call to Priebus but also he took the additional action of firing the person who sent the tweet.

The Priebus response:

"The tweet last night was outrageous and unacceptable. We immediately acknowledged that it was offensive and wrong, apologized, and deleted it. We have dismissed the person responsible for the tweet," Griffin said in a statement according to The Huffington Post.

Seemingly that wasn't enough. The RNC Chairman and head dunce doesn't seemed satisfied with the effort by MSNBC and Phil Griffin.

Priebus gave MSNBC president Phil Griffin credit for apologizing, but the RNC chairman still delivered a stern warning to the channel: we've got our eyes on you.

"So, you know what? It's sort of like being on probation, I guess. But the fact of the matter is we're here, we're watching them and it's our responsibility — and it's mine in particular, I think —also to stand up for our party. That's what I did today, and I'll do it again. I promise you that."

Now with this kind of leadership, does the GOP need some help? Watch this clip and see if The RNC Chairman isn't channeling the iconic Dean Wormer from Animal House. Talk about your wackadoos:
