Spotted by CREDO SuperPac's @TakeDownDuffy campaign, Wisconsin teabagger Rep. Sean Duffy (7th district) was on Fox & Friends saying President Obama was elected because "he could dance, he could sing":
We've got your back Sandra.
Yes, that is a comment from one of the RWNJ blogs that are tooting this twaddle. Bo-Gate, as in Watergate. Ahem. On another note, either this blogger is mistaken, or he is a vampire alien from the bowels of Kohoutek. This is a link to one of the sillier blogs, click at your own risk.
Bo Obama was supposed to be in Hawaii. Instead, he showed up at President Obama’s side Wednesday shopping for treats at PetSmart
According to Michelle Obama’s press office, the first dog was planning to go to Hawaii with the first lady and the Obama daughters. The Chicago Sun-Times reported that he in fact had gone there. The Honolulu Star-Advertiser quoted an eyewitness who said he had seen the Portuguese Water Dog having his walk.
So what is Bo doing back in Washington shopping at PetSmart?
Either these reports are mistaken, or Bo was told his vacation was over and that he had to return to the White House to keep a lonely president company – and participate in a silly photo op presenting Obama as an average guy who likes to head out to the PetSmart.
I know, seeing all of them in one place is enough to make you lose your lunch and/or breakfast. But here at TPC, we bring you the bad news with the good.
"Pick Me!" So it's come to that, has it? Yes it has, since this bunch is awfully infantile.
I don't see the younger Paul in that sea of RWNJ, do you? I guess he's been relegated to "Someone Else." How fitting.
Truly offensive tweet aimed at the first lady. The president's wife. Our president's wife. Their president's wife.
Aimed at the first family.
Aimed at their children.
Who was it again who said kids of public figures are off limits? I thought so.
According to these same people, abortion is immoral, but suggesting this (even in "jest") is perfectly acceptable. No hypocrisy there.
And finally, thanks for tasteless, violent imagery. That's always such a patriotic way to approach the issues.
The L.A. Times has a good editorial up called, "This Just In... Duck!" about how the Joe Millers, Sharron Angles, Sarah Palins, and Carl Paladinos of the TeaOP are avoiding the press the way we try to avoid being exposed to a Former Half-Gov Ego McEarBleed screechy speechy.
[There's] an undercurrent of hostility promoted by such "tea party" favorites as Sarah Palin, whose followers revel in her frequent putdowns of the "lamestream media." What's troubling is that this disdain for the news media is giving many candidates, especially those backed by the tea party, an excuse for dodging responsibility for their own words and actions: Just blame the messenger. [...]
When conservatives demand "fair" coverage, it often seems that what they really want is uncritical promotion of their ideas and campaigns.
Whatever their excuse, whatever their position on the political spectrum, when politicians run away from cameras or lash out at reporters for simply doing their jobs, it's a pretty good bet that they have something to hide.
The L.A. Times apparently has a flair for understating the obvious.
