It's going to be a wonderous election year.
Wyoming's 2014 Republican primary is 13 months away, and former soldier of fortune Thomas Bleming is hopeful about his chances of defeating three-term Sen. Mike Enzi.
Enzi has a solid fundraising lead and almost two decades in Washington to throw into his campaign, but Bleming, who may end up financing his own campaign, isn't intimidated.
"How could I not be serious? All my life I've been serious," Bleming told U.S. News. The Vietnam War veteran, who says he's worked as a gun-for-hire around the world, is incensed with Enzi's votes in favor of the Patriot Act, the National Defense Authorization Act and the so-called "Monsanto Protection Act," a 2013 provision in the Consolidated and Further Continuing Appropriations Act to protect biotech companies that Bleming says might actually "make private gardening a federal felony."
"For them I think it's just a power trip to make these laws," he said. "F*ck them, f*ck them, they don't have any reality."
Talk about a guy who plays for keeps, Bleming, 67, admits he has killed several people over the years as a mercenary in the world's conflict zones.
"I assassinated a guy one time. I can't say where, but he had it coming to him," Bleming said. "He was fairly easy. He was a bad guy."
We can only hope and pray.
Makes perfect sense considering how toxic she was in her own contest.
Every contestant who has correctly answered clues about Minnesota's controversial Congresswoman failed to win their match including the latest in the Teen Tournament on Friday
For the fourth time since launching her 2012 presidential campaign, Minnesota Republican Congresswoman Michele Bachmann's name came up as part of the clue on the syndicated game show Jeopardy!
And on each of these four occasions, the contestant to ring in and provide the correct answer (that is, question) demonstrating their Bachmann knowledge failed to win the match.
On Friday - during the third quarterfinal game of the annual Teen Tournament - the $2,000 clue in a 'Double Jeopardy' category called, "113th Congress," read:
"Rep. Michele Bachmann says she formed this caucus to get Congress back to obeying the Constitution."
Seventeen year old high school senior Olivia Hummer from Covina, California rang in and correctly asked, "What is the Tea Party?"
This guy is really just butt evil. Last time the Deadbeat Dad show was on, our "hero" was claiming he had paid, but darn it, for some reason he forgot to bring his receipts, but when he did, boy whooey, would that stupid Judge be sorry. Whoopsy.
U.S. Rep. Joe Walsh (R-Ill.) says he hasn’t paid his court-ordered child support because he and his ex-wife reached a “verbal agreement” three years ago that he could stop paying her child support.
Laura Walsh says her ex-husband, elected to Congress last year as a leading voice of the Tea Party wing of the Republican Party, owed her $117,000 in child support and interest.
In a court filing in December, a month after he was elected, she said he stopped paying child support because, he told her, he didn’t have any money.
The congressman, in a court filing Thursday, says he wasn’t making much money, his ex-wife was making good money, and their kids were spending more time with him than with her.
“He reasonably relied on Laura’s representations and conduct, to his detriment,” the court filing says.
Walsh said he and his wife decided not to formalize their “verbal agreement” in court because “Joe and his former wife were both tired of court appearances and the resulting emotional and financial impact on the family. Neither party had the financial or emotional wherewithal to continue the battle.”
Laura Walsh’s attorney denied that.
Yeah, it's all that evil ex's fault Joe, you're a f'ng saint.
