Gotta Get Me Some Of Those Baby Parts!

163217 It’s the next big thing in liberal circles across the nation. You don’t need to die now. You can get some of your youth back, but don’t delay; baby organs are gonna be sailing out the door when word gets out. Don’t worry though, when young girls find out they can make an extra 75 bucks by almost giving birth, the industry’s going to just explode!

OK, I’m sorry. There’s nothing funny about Republicans making political hay out of a very serious and private issue, but they are intent on winning in 2016, and getting rid of “Planned Parenthood” at the same time. If that means bringing bloody baby livers and tissue into the public discussion, well, that’s where we’ll have to go.

Speaker John Boehner said Planned Parenthood makes him feel like throwing up. Mike Huckabee thinks he’ll be able to use this to show up on polling results.

For some reason, this morning I turned on the Sunday morning political shows, for the first time in many years. I was shocked to see George Stephanopolis covering this story. It’s impossible not to make comparisons to the phony ACORN scandal which brought down that organization, but hey, if it worked once… Besides, if the Democrats couldn’t see fit to stand up against that scam, this one should be a breeze! We’re talking fetus’s here!

This is just more, very well financed, Breitbart style entrapment infotainment which will get a lot of people killed, allow republicans to call democrats, “baby killers” and participate in more pro-life pagentry then ever before. There couldn’t be a more cynical political strategy then this. ABC first covered this story in 2000 on 20/20, but I guess the trouble it could cause for Democrats in 2016 was just too salacious.

Sorry Boehner and Huckabee, but I think I’m the one who’s going to puke.

So far the Democratic candidates don’t seem to be taking the bait and I’m proud of them. I’m also proud of how Cecile Richards of Planned Parenthood handled Stephanopolis’s phony concern beautifully. All other Democrats should have her strength:

Please don’t cave in this time Democrats. We’re watching you. All those little children got slaugtered in the Newtown tragedy and nothing happened. You don’t have any excuse to give the Republicans a victory here. Get angry, save lives, prevent abortions and protect women’s – really everybody’s – rights.

P.S. I feel bad about using the photo shoot from the only bad idea the Bealtles ever had, but it fit my post. :) They were trying to protest the Vietnam war and save babies. It’s a good thing somebody came to their senses and pulled that album cover.

Where Is The Dignity In This?

Dogs are pretty clever. They get to have three squares and lots of hugs by treating their masters like Ultra-Kings. This doesn’t always result in respect and sometimes problems arise, but all-in-all, the symbiotic relationship has been proven to work really well for quite a long time.

Not wanting to get any further into philosophical observations I have about dogs, I’m going to get right to the great cartoon from from MarkFiore:

I prefer cats. They’re a lot like anarchists, but if you treat them right, they’ll love you till the end.

Humans should probably be democrats, but these labels get all mixed up today.

Learn Our History: How Bush Killed Osama bin Laden

Mike Huckabee’s “Learn Our History” series of cartoons continues to re-write American history according to right-wing mythology. The 9/11 edition contains nothing about the reason America got attacked by al-Qaeda terrorists, except that the bad guys were “anti-American.” (They speak English to eliminate the need for subtitles). The cartoon is silent on the warnings before the 9/11 attacks that the Bush administration ignored. It extols the virtues of the USA PATRIOT Act (which genuine conservatives can’t stand). Plus a lot of praise for the Department of Homeland Security, a lot of praise for Israel and the clear implication that President George W. Bush was responsible for the death of Osama bin Laden. The reason why we’re dropping bombs on children in Afghanistan? So they are allowed to fly kites, if they survive! All in all, a triumph of historical scholarship, winger-style.

UPDATE: Huckabee compares his 9/11 cartoon to ‘Schindler’s List’

New Republican Strategy: Insult the Intelligence of 10 Year Olds

The Republicans have one, publically acknowledged, hero. How often do they bring up Ayn Rand, or any previous president from the Republican side? They are reluctant to talk about Lincoln because he – you know – freed the slaves.

Even the young men who created Superman comics knew that if he didn’t have SOME vulnerability, the story wouldn’t fly, but why worry about that? We have Ronald Reagan and decades of get-on-your-knees imagery and bombast.

If you think the following video was created for the 1980 election of Reagan, you’d be wrong. It was produced recently and is part of a project started by Mike Huckabee to teach history:

The 2012 Race Is Here, Get Used To It

Palin-Obama

Quinnipiac University Polling Institute:

President Barack Obama does not deserve a second term, American voters say 49 – 43 percent, and he is in a statistical dead heat with possible Republican challengers Mitt Romney and Mike Huckabee, according to a Quinnipiac University poll released today. President Obama leads Sarah Palin 48 – 40 percent.

Here’s the problem for Republicans: Palin is now the leading candidate for the GOP nomination, but also polls the worst in a general election against President Obama.

The best news for President Obama: If the economy improves, he wins in 2012 according to Yale economist Ray C. Fair.

Not-so-good news for Obama: Velma Hart just got laid off.

Sunday Brawling With Ken B.

I am so pleased with my response to Ken on McCain, I thought I would top post it if only to shake things up around here.

What you are seeing Ken is Republican Buyer’s Remorse for Bush. You see, Bush — being the worst fuckup in the history of America — has virtually ended any chance for ANY REPUBLICAN to win in November.

And the neocons in congress who can’t let go, have pulled the panties down around the ankles of the Party itself.

As a result, you are left with a bunch of GOP candidates whose megalomania precludes normal brain function.

And, in case you hadn’t noticed, Mitt Romney is the biggest megalomaniac of them all – handsome, rich, and righteous.

But Mitt is no genius. He’s certainly made the best of the silver spoon, but let me assure you, making money does not equal intelligence. That is Mitts greatest self-deception.

SO what about Huckabee? Ego-maniacal self-delusional Bubba from the land of Walmart and unregulated landfill..

And McCain? INSANE. His brain is broken. You can hear it in his speech. (Just go back and listen to him in 2000)

Lastly, Ron Paul. What can I say? Ron Paul appeals to uninformed, lazy, cynical, redneck America. The cold dirty bathwater of our nation.

I do hope Flip Mitt Flopper Romney DOES get the nomination so he can be pounded into the sand in the general. (Jesus H Christ, the guy can only raise $1m in Utah. Wake UP!)

Prepare yourself for the largest landslide for democrats in all races ever in the history of the nation. We might even decide to force people who voted for Bush to wear a swastika in public as a lesson to our children to spend less time with a “testament”, and more time in a text book.

Sorry about the last comment. Just chuckle and get over it. But seriously, is Utah going to once again stand out as the most out of step state in the country?

Remember when Perot beat Bill Clinton? Only in righteous Utah. Why do we hurt ourselves so?

Mike Huckabee is GAY!

If the recent disclosures about so many Republicans is any indication…

I don’t know whether people are born that way,” responded Huckabee, “but one thing I know, that the behavior one practices is a choice.

[kml_flashembed movie="http://www.youtube.com/v/qdQx8_hBt3Q" width="400" height="326" wmode="transparent" /]

I suppose the same goes for being black.

This would be just down right evil if The Huckster were just anyone, but as a leading presidential candidate, this is frightening.

Update: Looks like the Huck a’ Homo is shriveling in the polls giving ground to God wanna be, Darth “Romney” Vader.

…according to a new McClatchy-MSNBC poll.

At the same time, Mitt Romney has regained the lead among Iowa Republicans as Mike Huckabee has lost momentum and support, even among the evangelical Christians who had propelled him into the top spot just weeks ago.
