Under the Mountain Bunker

Matthew Cooper believes that if there’s one silver lining to be found in the “buffoonery” of the sequester, it’s that at least it will be a teachable moment for the public:

But if agencies and departments can’t or won’t juggle their books, hey, let people see what government really means. …There’s something sobering about aircraft carriers that won’t sail and forest rangers who won’t be paid to protect. The last time I can think of such an educational moment was not the short-lived government shutdown on the ’90s, but the Oklahoma City bombing. Who died in the blast? IRS officials, Secret Service agents, General Services Administration workers. President Clinton offered a reflection on the victims, “many there who served the rest of us, who worked to help the elderly and the disabled, who worked to support our farmers and our veterans, who worked to enforce our laws and to protect us.

‘Schweitzer stronger than Baucus’

Think Christie is good? This democrat could (and I think will) beat Chris Christie if they ever match up.
He is that good.

Considering she’s a current resident of Tennessee not

‘Ted Cruz a Lifeline for the Conservative Party’?

For me this is another ‘Please, Please Republicans – nominate
this guy for President’! If you want to lose again.

He is a Harvad educated Sarah Palin – a ture ‘leader’ in the
ever further leaning right Republican Party.
But that one clip alone, falling for a fake group and all but
calling a Vietnam Veteran a traitor, will turn off middle

To the right leaning (OK bent completely right over)
Washington Examiner, the ‘bad message’ is the cuts will hurt
National Defense.
To everyone else, the ‘bad message’ is ‘Boehner: I got 98
percent of what I wanted’ @ :

My questions are why? and who cares?

 

When the truth won’t support your argument, just make things up. This has become the Grand Old Party’s main talking point on almost every subject.

As we found out earlier today, the GOP belief that Chuck Hagel had been on the payroll of an organization called “Friends of Hamas” crashed and burned when it turned out to be a bad joke that conservative morons took seriously.

Like their unshakable belief in “skewed polls”, Republicans consistently cling to any craziness that validates their world view. And like their unskewed election results shocker, they don’t appear ready to learn from their mistakes. They would much rather whine instead.
