A funny, funny political satirist you probably haven't heard of "Ask a Republican"



"Why do you Republicans care more fetuses than babies born afterwards?"

"Well, when a life-form is a fetus, we don't know if it's gay yet. . . . That's what great about America, there's so many opportunities, especially if you're white and living in a gated community."

Remember when the Florida RepubliCons told democracy to drop dead?

I had almost forgotten about this little tidbit until I stumbled across it today.

It's particularly rich given all the CONcern about Pres. Obama's "executive actions."

RE: the legal battle to have Florida votes recounted as mandated by its own state law in the 2000 election of Bush v Gore, December 2000

"House Speaker Tom Feeney and Senate President John McKay announced Florida's 160 lawmakers will go into session at noon on Friday, ready to approve their own slate of Bush-friendly electors in case a state or federal court determines that Gore won the state.

"'We're protecting Florida's 25 electoral votes and its six million voters,' said McKay. 'Our sole responsibility will be to put forth a slate of electors that is untainted.'

. . . .

"Florida Gov. Jeb Bush has already signed off on a slate of electors for his older brother, based on George W. Bush's 537-vote margin of victory in the election results certified by Republican Secretary of State Katherine Harris. But Gore has contested the election results, saying thousands of votes that would have given him a Florida victory have never been counted."

In other words, we don't give a s*** how the legally mandated recount turns out, we're gonna make sure GW wins.

Oh, and btw, the Cons made sure that the recount never happened . . .

New(er) video: NOT consistent with "broken eye socket"



http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2728166/Video-shows-cop-shot-Michael-Brown-pacing-lifeless-body-immediately-firing-six-shots-teen.html

Although the shots are grainy, it's hard to imagine that Patrolman Wilson (identified as standing to the right in photo) is suffering from "a fractured eye-socket" at this point as this right-wing source claims: "Sources in St. Louis including those in the district attorney’s office confirmed to the Gateway Pundit that Wilson suffered an 'orbital blowout fracture to the eye socket.'" (I provide no link to Gateway Pundit because it sucks.)

He's walking around calmly. No ice pack to the face, no EMT rushing to his aid.

(Video is at the very bottom of the page at link.)

Five hours. Five full hours.

That's how long Michael Brown's body lay in the street in the predominately African-American neighborhood of Ferguson.

In England, even through the Renaissance, criminals executed for high crimes such as treason were routinely chopped up and their body parts displayed in different parts of the kingdom for the "edification" of others. The Tower Bridge in London was well-known for its display of decapitated heads piked above the wayfarers below.

I can't help but think this was the Ferguson Police Department's message to black folk in Ferguson--"non compliance equals death, homies, don't forget it." Why in the hell else would it take more than a half-an-hour to get a body out of the street?

They were letting that lesson sink in good and deep.
