I'm bumping up this post from July 22, 2012 (with minor tweaks) because it's more timely than ever in light of the Newton, Connecticut massacre.

If Norman Lear tried to sell "All in the Family" today, he'd get turned down for being too offensive. Think about that a good long time.

I’m so glad my pal Diane Sweet linked me to this video. As she so astutely said, “If you sound like Archie Bunker it might be time to rethink your position.”

The more things change…

Now take a look at this July 20, 2012 video of contrasting reactions to the Colorado shootings from Pres. Obama and GOP Rep. Louie Bunker, er, Gohmert. [Pres. Obama's January 14, 2013 press conference on life-saving policies regarding guns here]

And finally, here are a couple of screen grabs of ex-Sen. Russell Bunker, er, Pearce in his own words, via his Facebook page:

Well folks, our fundraiser just got serious. Paddy now has major problems with her dinosaur computer. She needs a new one.

Please note: Without Paddy, the number of posts here at TPC would be cut in half. I'm only here from 9-6 PT, and Paddy (Eastern Time) covers all the early breaking news that I see way after most of you do. So we have to cover the costs of a new computer for her, STAT.

If we somehow brighten your day, educate or even irritate you at times, please consider a donation, big or small, to keep us bumping along. If everyone who dropped by on a daily basis dropped a coin in the bucket, we'd be done in no time.

If you'd like a snail mail address, email us at paddy at thepoliticalcarnival dot net. Thank you.

Judge okays Arizona Sen. Russell Pearce's recall vote

FacebookTwitterRedditDiggStumbleUponTumblrLinkedInPinterestEmailShare

The recall election against Russell Pearce, the compassionate, reachy-outy guy behind SB 1070 (aka the Papers Please Law), just got the green light.  Ohhh yeah:

PHOENIXMaricopa County Superior Court Judge Hugh Hegyi threw out nearly all of the lawsuit that alleged flaws in the recall drive against state Senate President Russell Pearce.

The lawsuit by Pearce supporter Franklin Bruce Ross sought to have the Nov. 8 election called off on the grounds that recall supporters fell short of the required 7,756 voter signatures from Pearce's district in Mesa. Election officials say recall backers handed in 10,365 valid signatures. [...]

Recall organizers have been critical of Pearce's views on confronting the state's border woes and say he has failed to focus on protecting public education and ensuring access to health care. Pearce has said he strives to promote schools, job creation, balanced budgets, law enforcement and secure borders.

Between this election, the ones in Wisconsin, and others to come, the GOP will have just a tad of trouble bragging about that "mandate" they think they have.

Stupid bigot probably thought he was immune. Wonder how long Brewer can tie up the special election?

PHOENIX — The sponsor of Arizona's controversial immigration law faces a recall election after opponents collected more than 10,000 voter signatures.

County Elections Director Karen Osborne says her office is certifying that the petitions have 10,365 valid signatures of voters from state Sen. Russell Pearce's legislative district.

They needed 7,756 signatures to force a recall election.

(snip)

Pearce, a Republican from Mesa, is best known for sponsoring immigration measures including the 2010 enforcement law known as SB1070. A judge has placed key provisions of that measure on hold while they're challenged in court.
