What's In A Name? Plenty


Wayne Gay

Well, we're on our way to that season when serious folks announce that they're going to run for office. We all know about the presidential hopefuls, Cruz, Paul, Rubio, Clinton, Biden.

But what about the thousands of other offices, local and statewide? There's a lot of people who are busy tossing their hats into the ring that we've hardly heard of, but they're going to make a run for these elected offices. Sometimes though, it's hard to keep a straight face.

So here's a few of the people who have recently or currently are running. These are all genuine, I assure you. Some will instill confidence, others, well. You be the judge or perhaps you prefer:

Lawless for circuit judge

There's also Jay Walker --Afton Illinois tax assessor; Young Boozer -- state treasurer in Alabama; Ryan Fattman -- Massachusetts state representative; Timothy Shotwell -- sheriff in Washington state. (That one just keeps bringing up Eric Clapton singing, "I shot the sheriff, but I did not shoot the deputy")

Sometimes it pays to run as a team, join forces, like here:

Ball and Cox

Now for a few more, who will ever forget the inimitable former House of Representatives member, Dick Swett from New Hampshire; Robin Rape, Texas Precinct 1 constable (a lawman's name if I ever heard one); Idaho U.S. Senator Mike "Crap" Crapo; or the late, great--

Harry Balls

Finally, I leave you with a man who pronounces his name as it's spelled. It's not "Baynor" -- but:

Boner Mayor

So you now know what's in a name. Don't forget to vote in your next election. It's worth the time no matter what your favorite candidate's name is.

Illinois gun "enthusiasts" sent out an anti-Bloomberg, anti-Robin Kelly postcard...and managed to misspell both Debbie Halvorson's name and-- wait for it-- "February".

Here's an idea:

use spell check 2

Imagine what would happen if gun zealots could spell! Thay kood beekum a reel thret:

gun nuts misspell Halvorson in postcard ad gun nuts misspell February in Halvorson postcard

The above images were sent to me in an email, and they come to us via @dkoselections. I edited them to highlight the errors and also added the arrows.

but wait there's moreThis photo comes by way of the Downtown Asheville Facebook page. I edited it down a little for size only, but the image is intact:

Yes, according to Very Dedicated to the Constitution Guy, we are to "suport" the right to "own bare arms"... according to the "Secont Ament." I'm relieved to hear that, since I own two bare arms, and even a bare the-rest-of-me.

Actually, the Second Amendment mentions a little something about a "well-regulated militia," presumably in uniform. A bare-armed militia would get plenty of laughs, but not much protection from the elements. And don't get me started on the chafing.

As a special added bonus I'm adding a few other choice examples of the genius behind right wing messaging:

PhotOh! "If only my uterus was a corporation"


My Twitter buddy jodmentum made a couple of signs for Awake the State and is sharing. This is one day I wouldn't mind being in Florida.

For your consideration:



PhotOh! Rally to Restore Sanity signs: "Everyone is Hitler", "Everyone Poops"


Best signs ever!

One I missed grabbing: "Think outside the Fox".  Heaven.


Tea Party Nation e-mail: "The horrors if illegal immigration"


Paddy just forwarded me an e-mail she got. I'd have thanked her, but I was too busy pulling my hair out:

A message to all members of Tea Party Nation

The drum beat for Amnesty is here.  The Obama Regime and the drive-by media are pushing Amnesty with stories about illegals who are just here “to make a better life” for themselves.  The media is ignoring stories of the horrors if illegal immigration.  At TPN, we want to highlight some of these stories.  We need your help.

We have set up a forum for stories of illegal immigration.  If have been the victim of a crime by an illegal, or if your business has gone under because your competition uses illegals, or if you have lost your job to illegals, we want to know about it.  If you have photos and videos of illegals or their supporters doing outrageous things (like burning the American flag or putting the Mexican flag above ours, or showing racist posters), please share those as well.

We need to get the true story out about illegal immigration and we need your help to do it.

Our forum is here.

Stop by and contribute.  Take the time to read some of the other stories and share them.   We must stop illegal immigration.  The future of our country, for our children and our grandchildren, depends on it.

First, it might be wise to check for typos before sending out a bunch of e-mails. Then again, if the Tea Potty signs are any indication of Tea Bagger writing skills, well, this is the most literate message I've seen to date. Moving on...

The Obama regime, they say. Yes, it's a regime. A big, bad socialist regime that is coddling drug dealers and murderers, inviting them to join us in the land of the free.

Sidebar: How many members of the Tea Party Nation have grandparents/great-grandparents from not-America who came here to "make a better life" for themselves? Hands?

Yeah, I thought so.

And watch out! Hide the kids! All those scary, thuggy "illegals" are after us, victimizing innocent Americans by brutally mowing their lawns and cleaning their toilets.  Why, there are lily white U.S. citizens just lining up to do an honest day's work like that! Those selfish "illegals" are snapping up those desirable, highly paid, perk-filled jobs by the thousands... all while murdering your neighbors.

And how outrageous of someone who is proud of their heritage to carry the flag of their native country.  Would holding an American flag in, say, England or-- dun, dun dun-n-n!-- France be something they'd condemn? Why, of course they would, because that would be outrageous!

As for racist posters, maybe this will jog their deteriorating memories:

And finally, our children and grandchildren might, you know, benefit from the tax revenue generated by "illegals", not to mention learn from friends who would gladly teach them about their culture, therefore expanding their horizons, opening their eyes to a vast, beautiful, diverse world beyond our barbed wired borders.

For the record, I took out the link Tea Bagger Nation included in the e-mail.
