Romney doesn’t care about poor people – shocker! Gingrich is delusional – duh. The Muppets clown Fox News – trust me it’s hilarious. Blake Griffith’s dunk made me start sucking my thumb and I don’t care if you don’t even read the entire post just scroll down to the bottom and watch the First Lady of the United States make you want to step up your work out – like right now.
(1) Planned Parenthood & The Susan G. Komen for the Cure Foundation. Ordinarily these two organizations would not be listed in the political section HOWEVER “the times they are a-changing” and bullsh*t is showing up in all arenas. I posted about this yesterday so this is a quick recap and update.
Recap: Strong evidence indicated that Komen’s decision to stop providing breast health related grants to Planned Parenthood was politically motivated as they now have an avowed pro-lifer as VP of Public Policy (Karen Handel).
Update: Komen has apologized to Planned Parenthood and said that it will “preserve its eligibility for future grants.” Yes, this should be seen as a victory HOWEVER the language used should be noted:
“Komen’s apology is not a promise to renew Planned Parenthood grants. It’s a promise to “continue to fund existing grants” to the organization — which it was already planning on doing — and to make it eligible for future grants. At no point in the press release does Brinker promise that Komen will renew grants to Planned Parenthood.”
The super awesome news is that Planned Parenthood has raised nearly ONE MILLION DOLLARS in the last several days – an amount that exceeds the money they would have received from Komen this year. I am uber pleased that Americans rallied together to preserve access to basic health services for women. GOOD JOB!!
(2) Mitt Romney
Won the Florida Primary and now gets to have Secret Service. Let’s make sure his taxpayer funded private security team ends in November. #Obama2012
Just got Donald Trump’s endorsement. NOW will you start boycotting “Celebrity Apprentice”?? As if the birther nonsense and asking to see President Obama’s grades wasn’t bad enough. Seriously both of these guys SUCK!
I already reminded you of Trump’s suckiness factor (see above). Here’s a new one for Romney:
“I’m not concerned about the very poor. We have a safety net there. If it needs repair, I’ll fix it…”
And there you have it, no need for any additional commentary from me. Well, except for this: I can’t WAIT for Obama to go HAM on the ken doll during the general election debates. Remote control? Check. Popcorn? Check. Big smile on my face? CHECK!
(3) Leroy Gingrich lives in an alternate universe. I kinda suspected it but it has recently become crystal clear that it is true.
He came in 2nd in the Florida Primary but I’m not sure if that really sunk in because during his 2nd place finish speech he listed his intended goals for a Gingrich Administration. HE. IS. DELUSIONAL! (re Video – skip to the 4:00 minute mark)
Another example of his delusional state of mind is that in the face of EXTREMELY vocal party opposition he is still carrying on.
In recent history (at least since the 80s) have you ever known Republicans to go at each other like this? No you haven’t because it wasn’t allowed. Ronald Reagan popularized what is known as the 11th Commandment: “Thou shalt not speak ill of any fellow Republican.” You may have hated their guts but you had to respect the way they stuck together. But not anymore, those days are OVAH! Clearly the nominees are going hard against each other but other GOP heads are chiming in just as forcefully AGAINST Newt “leave a bad taste in your brain” Gingrich:
New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie: “This is a guy who…has been an embarrassment to the party.”
Bob Dole (R-Kan): “I have not been critical of Newt Gingrich but it is now time to take a stand before it is too late,” the letter begins. “Hardly anyone who served with Newt in Congress has endorsed him and that fact speaks for itself.”
Former Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty: “For Republicans and conservatives all across this country, a question is going to have to be, as they consider Newt Gingrich as a potential nominee for president: Really? I mean, really?”
Leroy my boy you need to give it up. Let. It. Go. When your own kind hate you it’s a wrap. Put it this way, I’m black (surprise!) and let’s say I’m running for office. If I knew that I couldn’t get at least half of the black people I know personally to vote for me well then guess what I need to realize – my ship ain’t sailing.
Perhaps he is pushing this moon colony thing because that is where he and his stepford wife really live. Ahhhhhhh now it all makes sense!
(4) Allen West – who is he and why am I bringing him up?
Who & Why: He is a Republican Congressman from Florida who is up for re-election. He is also a SUPREME A*SHOLE and it is time for him to go.
Last summer he got into a “dispute” with fellow congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Shultz (D-Florida).
She said it was “unbelieveable” that he could support a plan to raise costs for Medicare recipients. In response, via email sent to other congressional leaders, he called her the “most vile, unprofessional, and despicable member of the U.S. House of Representatives.” AND added that she was ”not a lady.” Oh my!
“We need to let President Obama, Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi, and my dear friend the chairman of the Democrat National Committee, we need to let them know that Florida ain’t on the table.” He added, “Take your message of equality of achievement, take your message of economic dependency, take your message of enslaving the entrepreneurial will and spirit of the American people somewhere else. You can take it to Europe, you can take it to the bottom of the sea, you can take it to the North Pole, but get the hell out of the United States of America.”
After cheers, West added, “Yeah I said ‘hell.’”
And now (thankfully) he is one of 10 Tea Party candidates being targeted by the Super Pac “CREDO” to be defeated in November. See, you don’t have to live in Florida to help purge Washington D.C. of its lunatics. Finally, a SuperPac I can love.

(2) The Muppets. I know right. What on earth is going on with The Muppets?? This amused me so I had to include it. Fox News accused the latest Muppet movie of being “anti-oil” and an “anti-corporate propaganda [piece] meant to influence children.” HAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Whew, I mean REALLY??!??!
Kermit the Frog’s response: “It’s a funny thing, they were concerned about us having some prejudice against oil companies, and I can tell you, that’s categorically not true,”
Miss Piggy’s response: “the charge was ‘almost as laughable as accusing Fox News of being news.’ “
This exchange took place at a press conference. No, I am not joking. Miss Piggy and Kermit had a press conference. See for yourself:
(1) The Dunk felt around the world. No really, I think God looked down and said “DAYUM!”
I didn’t watch the game. I just saw the clip and I literally had to hold myself afterward. #NASTY!
(2) Can YOU do more push-ups than The First Lady of the United States? Michelle Obama is THE TRUTH!!
SHE. IS. THE. BEST!
IT’S FRIDAY! Live a little or live a lot, just make sure you LIVE!!!
