The GOP platform is a farce, the nomination procedure was a farce (just ask Ron Paul supporters). The entire convention has been one giant anti-women, anti-gay, anti-immigrant, anti-poor and middle class farce. All the convention has managed to do so far is show the world just how much of a fractured, dysfunctional, and hateful party the GOP is. All I can say is:
Actually, there are a few issues in which me and Ron Paul see eye to eye, such as his stance on education, drug legalization, and staying the hell out of another country’s business. This quote attributed to Paul fits my view on education perfectly. The corporate world doesn’t want critical thinkers; it would much rather have a nation of worker bees, who happily punch a time clock in order to feed the already morbidly obese corporate beast.
Are you curious to know who’s working so hard to get President Obama re-elected? Well wonder no more! These four men are working diligently, night and day, to make sure that Obama is our president for another term. Thanks guys! Keep up the good work!

Ron Paul has some twisted values. During his appearance on CNN’s State of the Union, Paul had this to say when questioned about sending federal aid to the tornado battered south and midwest:
“Federal money is just what they steal from the states and steal from you and me.”
The crazy little man further added:
“The people who live in tornado alley, just as I live in hurricane alley, they should have insurance,”
I wonder if Paul realizes that not everyone has the kind of money that he has to buy decent homeowners or renters insurance? Many of the communities that were devastated by last week’s storms are close to where I live; they are mostly small rural towns, and very financially depressed areas. I seriously doubt that any one of these ravaged towns has the kind of money to just pick themselves up, and dust themselves off.
Furthermore, the states sure as hell don’t have the money to help: Their conservative leaders are busy spending the money on important job creating issues, such as fighting immigration, abortion, and same sex marriage. That leaves these strickened areas to depend upon much needed federal aid, unless your Governor John Kasich. Apparently Ohio has enough money of it’s own, because Kasich turned down federal aid when it was offered.
Politicians like Paul and Kasich are so worried about state’s rights and spending, that they would rather see regions devastated by natural disasters wither and die than accept federal aid. Where’s the logic in that?
One more thing: does anyone find it a little odd that Homeland Security is handling the catastrophes in Indiana? I’m just sayin’

How about that Tucker Carlson? The impish little editor in chief of The Daily Caller had this to say while channeling his inner George Bush on Faux News:
” I think we are the only country with the moral authority […] sufficient to do that. [The U.S. is] the only country that doesn’t seek hegemony in the world. I do think, I’m sure I’m the lone voice in saying this, that Iran deserves to be annihilated. I think they’re lunatics. I think they’re evil.”
Tucker Carlson thinks that Iranians are evil lunatics? Pot meet kettle. Maybe you should look in the mirror, or better yet, take a look at that crazed party of war loving, jingoistic douche bags you so lovingly shill for. Seriously dude, take a Prozac, you need one. Better yet take the whole bottle.

A tip of the tinfoil hat to Don in Massachusetts for sharing this. 🙂
After realizing that America has filled it’s quota of bad presidents from Texas, Rick Perry has finally decided to drop out of the race. After his anticipated announcement, and the earlier withdrawal of Jon Huntsman (so long Jon, we hardly knew ya- literally). That brings us down to four candidates heading into the stretch run for the GOP nomination.
In case you weren’t paying attention, here’s what the Republicans are left with:
Mitt Romney- The ultimate political chameleon: This guy has more flip flops than all of the 50,000 beach towel shops in Myrtle Beach combined. He’s an unethical corporate shill. He probably masturbates to pictures of the Koch brothers.
STILL IN THE RUNNING
Newt Gingrich- How is this guy still in the race? He’s a scam artist extraordinare, as well as a bigoted elitist. In addition, he refuses to do any research what so ever on any issue he blathers on about,which makes him a lazy generalization specialist. His whole campaign is driven by attacking Romney and Obama. The Tea Party loves him: Go figure.
Ron Paul- Paul is like an infected boil: No matter how many times you lance it, it comes back bigger, angrier, and uglier than the time before. He’s Ayn Rand with a penis.
Rick (Frothy Mix) Santorum- I think this guy both angers and scares me the most. His main goal is to turn America into an elitist theocracy, with no intention whatsoever of having any regards to social, or economic equality. He hates immigrants, gays, poor people, secular people, African Americans, Socialists, women, and generally anyone with an IQ over 70. In other words, unless you’re a christian, white, rich, heterosexual American male, Rick Santorum hates you. This guy is a right wing extremist thug, as well as a political cancer.
So if you’re scoring at home, the GOP is left with a goon, a loon, a buffoon, and a baboon. I’ll let you match up which moniker to what candidate. In reality, the four are interchangeable parts of the same sinister political machine.
