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 News9.com:

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

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

TPM:

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 MSNBC.com 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:

The Real Scandal on Capitol Hill

FacebookTwitterRedditDiggStumbleUponTumblrLinkedInPinterestEmailShare

scandal-1

Well, it's shutdown day one. We can keep counting the minutes and hours, but there's little we can do until the insanity of the Republican party dies off as congressional switchboards light up, email in-boxes back up, and the people continue to chat up the scandal regarding the Affordable Care Act, aka, Obamacare.

SCANDALOUS? You mean SCANDAL the Emmy winning ABC TV show about a Washington woman who covertly "fixes" scandals?

Close. This is a parody by Funny or Die. At least they claim it's a parody. Truth can be funnier than fiction.

The Plot : Speaker of the House, John Boehner's fallen under the dastardly brain control of Senator Curz. The Speaker only has to present a clean CR bill to the full House and it'll pass. But he's been corrupted by the Tea Party terrorists and their lies to the public are instilling the masses with fear. The government has shut down. If something isn't done soon, jobs will be lost. Lives will be lost. Faith in our government will be lost.

This is Scandalous -- ACA. Stay with me here and watch:

When truth and parody are the same, it makes you wonder about our elected officials. With Cruz, Boehner, Lee, Rubio and Rand in office, doesn't it make you wonder if America  isn't being 'punked' and in need of Olivia Pope and crew?

Audio- Rick Wiles, Christian Radio "Pastor", Gets Panties In Bunch Over Criticism From Rachel Maddow

I LOVE it when they get all sensitive and pouty. He's talking about us, btw. Via RWW.

I discovered that MSNBC's socialist news commentator Rachel Maddow played a soundbite of me on her program last night. Thank you, Rachel. I appreciate the publicity even though there aren't that many people watching MSNBC, but I'll take all the publicity I can get.

The people who do watch it, however, have a visceral hate for Jesus Christ and Christians. In fifteen years of full-time ministry, I have never read or heard such ugly, hateful, threatening, vulgar, obscene, blasphemous messages in my life. Ever. I won't even repeat them because some of the things that they said about our lord and savior Jesus Christ is so vulgar, so blasphemous, that it only could be uttered by people who are demon-possessed.

The spirit of Antichrist is loose in America. A man of lawlessness is in the White House. His followers hate Christianity. And most of the American Christian church has yet to realize the scope and depth of this hellish hate that is boiling in the Obamanistas towards anybody who dares to profess biblical Christianity and morality.

It is the same spirit that rose up in the Nazis in Germany towards the Jews. This time it will be the Christians in America who are locked up or put to death.

You gotta give it to him though, he does know how to crank hyperbole to 11.

Here's the piece Rachel did that got his knickers in such a twist.

As most of you know, I tweet our TPC posts on Twitter all day, so I am exposed to many, many wonderful people, but also a whole lot of truly deranged types. After awhile it adds up. Then I compound that by making the mistake of watching the Sunday Talkers, and bam! I occasionally gotta vent.
