Gop Goop Glop

Washington, D.C.

Want to know why there might be a disconnect between public anger at Obama and the Democrats and Senate Republican candidates’ less than stellar showing in the polls?

Try this.

You’ll notice that a company called TracFone is the single largest beneficiary of income since the Lifeline program was extended into the cell phone space in 2008, because of a bill signed by then-President George W. Bush.  (That’s why they really should be called Bushphones, and not Obamaphones.)  Who owns TracFone?  Carlos Slim.

So if you add it all up, all it means is that Carlos Slim is spending a lot of money (by our standards, but pocket change to him) to convince House Republicans not to cut the Bushphone program by even one red penny, hiding behind the uniforms of disabled veterans in the process. That said, expect a barrage of editorials in the New York Times denouncing any Republican or anyone who wants to spend slightly less on Bushphones next year than this year.

Which means this woman will probably never have to worry about losing her free sail foam, no matter which of the “two” parties wins elections.





Mercy Plea

New Orleans

The wife and kids are pleading with the judge for leniency.

He’s a good boy, and honor roll student, a good athlete, an aspiring rapper, who happened to fall in with the wrong crowd.  But he was in the process of turning his life around.  Besides, blame Bush.

UPDATE

Didn’t work.  Ten bit.





So They Say

Philadelphia

We don’t need photo ID to vote, they say.

Voter fraud is not a problem, they say.

So why are they passing around oodles of money to prevent from happening something they say we don’t need to prevent a problem they say doesn’t exist?





Sleepover

Washington, D.C.

Why did most Senate Democrats essentially throw a pajama party on the Senate floor overnight to pump up the “climate change” non-issue?

I’ll give you a hint:

It’s for much the same reason why the Republican leadership is trying to broker some sort of amnesty and open borders bill, with “immigration reform” (in terms of having more of it) being the most important issue to only 3% of all Amurrikans.

They’re both placating their respective parties’ donor classes.





Nineteen More

Baltimore

More Federal raps in the Gorilla Fambly scandal from the Baltimore hoosegow.  Nineteen people in all, 14 of them current or former guards at the jail.

No mugs provided, none needed.  Most of them look like older more haggity versions of Rachel Jeantel.

Why John Boehner Really Doesn’t Want to Get Rid of ObamaCare

26 08 2013

Washington, D.C.

ObamaCare has become a big circus of a revolving door between the politicians who voted for it, the Congressional staffers who crafted the legislation and the executive branch munchkins who are implementing and enforcing it, and the lobbying industry on K Street.

Even though all all involved are Democrats, you can bet Karl Roverrated and the Republican-oriented Barnacle Class make an appearance somewhere in this story.
