There’s Things We Have Left To Fuck Up

Just because the GOP fucked everything up doesn’t mean you shouldn’t listen to them when they tell you how to fix it. Also, Republicans are complaining that they’re being shut out of the stimulus conference negotiations, despite exactly three of them voting for the bills in both houses of Congress.…

Jobless rate jumps to 7.6 percent, 598K jobs lost

As the GOP strokes itself with glee in its attempt to undercut the stimulus package for political gain, look at what the tax break, spend and warmongering economy of their former Dear Leader has wrought just in the last year — 3.5 million jobs have vanished. (AP): Recession-battered employers eliminated…

National Republican Congressional Committee web site: economy is robust, job creation strong

This is precious. Talk about a party in disarray. Either the GOP is as delusional as John McCain was on the state of the economy or they have some seriously lameass webmasters over at the National Republican Congressional Committee: “Thanks to Republican economic policies, the U.S. economy is robust and…

Colin Powell smacks down the wingnut faction of the GOP

It wasn’t just his reassessment of DADT that has Colin Powell on a roll. He blasted the politics of the McCain Mobs in his endorsement of Barack Obama, and now he’s taking a torch to the GOP for its inability to see its enthusiastic bigot appeal is limited. He said…

McCain team begins the blame game, and the alien bursts from the GOP’s chest

Yep, the results of November 4th aren’t in yet, but the folks inside the McCain/Palin campaign are readying their resumes for some Beltway pavement pounding and forming the circular firing squad. Sounds like a winning end game, huh? With despair rising even among many of John McCain’s own advisers, influential…

Protecting Our God Given Right To Threaten Elected Officials

Ever since Ohio Secretary of State Jennifer Brunner (who’s one of the nicest people I’ve ever met, by the way) decided that the rights of voters trumped the right of the GOP to not have people vote against it, she’s been under fire for her decision. It’s certainly a sea…

Voting Wins!

The Supreme Court just ruled in Ohio Secretary of State Jennifer Brunner’s favor over proposed GOP voter verification standards that would have potentially disenfranchised hundreds of thousands of voters. I’m trying to think of the last thing the GOP did to actually help someone vote, and the only thing I’m…

Let’s Get This Franchise CRUNK

The Wisconsin GOP is asking for inner city vote suppressors, and its request is…a bit specific. Jonathan Waclawski, the party’s election day operations, wrote in a Sept. 8 e-mail that he needed contact information for people “who would potentially be willing to volunteer … at inner city (more intimidating) polling…

Op-ed on black Republicans and the GOP tells it like it is

Raynard Jackson, a Republican and a D.C.-based political consultant, does a great job of outlining the dilemma of the black Republican in today’s GOP in this op-ed. Much like the Log Cabin Republicans, they feel they don’t get the respect from their communities, who often cleave to the Democratic party…

Manic Pixie Dream Governor

I’m watching a tape of a Sarah Palin speech right now, and realizing that the woman is the GOP’s Manic Pixie Dream Governor. Literally, her entire stump speech is just wacky shit she’s done that’s supposed to get the dispirited base thinking about what could be, a woman who brings…
