Something Other Than The GOP Debate

23 Jan

Yeah, no debate for me tonight.  I’ll just wait for all the highlights and deconstruction in the morrow. Need the break, I’ll go insane if I listen to that much batshit-wingnut lunacy in a concentrated dose … They probably booed a hispanic nurse for giving a gay man CPR or some such thing.  So, I’ll just drop a few randoms of the day on ya ….

  • First one here is a nice little deconstruction from Media Matters of the light bulb bullshit the right has been spewing.  Obama is apparently going to turn out the lights so that, under cover of darkness, he can take away all our guns and turn us into a socialist hell hole
  • Another example of the fears of the GOP establishment/elite that their party is imploding from Jennifer Rubin as she implores one of the “won’t runs” to run,

But here’s the thing: The voters in their infinite wisdom have just given a huge boost to perhaps the only GOP candidate who could shift the spotlight from President Obama to himself, alienate virtually all independent voters, lose more than 40 states and put the House majority in jeopardy.

That’s right, you can thank the Tea Party for that m’dear

  • Boehner and Cantor prepare for another legislative session.  Have they learned anything from last year?

“Our focus over the last 12 months has been on jobs,” Boehner said during an appearance on “Fox News Sunday.” “Our focus over the course of the next 12 months is going to be on jobs.”

Ummm … your focus has been tax breaks for the wealthy, gutting the social safety net, a war on reproductive rights, the environment & regulation.

“We really have to be much better at laying out a vision of what we stand for,” Cantor said in an interview. “And that means we have to have a message that sort of reflects in a very simple way, and to me, small-business job creation is what the taxpayers of this country can benefit most by.”

GOP leaders are aiming to attach the Keystone XL pipeline to either the payroll holiday or the infrastructure bill, sources say.

apparently the answer is … NO

Let the Pied Pipers of the Tea Party run the GOP right of the cliff I say …

    I mean,… what do you do with this Fox News mentality. Who the hell complains about lighting efficiency standards,… while at the same time pulling as hard as they can for that nasty, toxic tar sand oil and hydrofracking that is apparently causing minor earthquakes and fouling aquifers.
    I fully believe the fracking could be done relatively safely if everyone followed the rules. But we all know how that goes. (BP)
