GAO exonerates ACORN -- Gee! What a shocker!

The right wing's obsession with destroying the community organizing group ACORN was never about criminal misdeeds, corruption or mishandling government grants. ACORN played a fairly substantial role in the run-up to the 2008 election in making inroads in poor neighborhoods and communities in registering voters - the majority who happened to be minority and Democrat.

So in essence what truly horrified the right wing about ACORN's work was that that they were registering too many darkie and beaner Democrats to vote. It really is as simple as that.

Rush to hungry kids --- "go dumpster diving"

LIMBAUGH: I think, you know what we're going to do here, we're going to start a feature on this program: "Where to find food." For young demographics, where to find food. Now that school is out, where to find food. We can have a daily feature on this. And this will take us all the way through the summer. Where to find food. And, of course, the first will be: "Try your house." It's a thing called the refrigerator. You probably already know about it. Try looking there. There are also things in what's called the kitchen of your house called cupboards. And in those cupboards, most likely you're going to find Ding-Dongs, Twinkies, Lays ridgy potato chips, all kinds of dips and maybe a can of corn that you don't want, but it will be there. If that doesn't work, try a Happy Meal at McDonald's. You know where McDonald's is. There's the Dollar Menu at McDonald's and if they don't have Chicken McNuggets, dial 911 and ask for Obama.

There's another place if none of these options work to find food; there's always the neighborhood dumpster. Now, you might find competition with homeless people there, but there are videos that have been produced to show you how to healthfully dine and how to dumpster dive and survive until school kicks back up in August. Can you imagine the benefit we would provide people?

You know -- I've probably made the observation dozens of times over my 6 year blogging career about what a piece of human shit Rush Limbaugh is and frankly I tire of pointing it out so frequently.

Therefore, since it's really not possible for me to expound any further upon that factual point - I'm going to instead ask my Rush Limbaugh loving friends and family this question -- how do you sleep at night knowing that you personally connect on an intellectual, moral, and spiritual level with a piece of human shit like Limbaugh?

No really -- I'm honestly interested in hearing an answer to that question. If you connect on an intellectual, moral, spiritual level with a guy who's of the view that the best way for impoverished, hungry children to deal with their horrible situation is to go "diving" for rotten food in maggot infested dumpsters, I'm all ears to hear your justifications.

And it goes without saying that I really shouldn't have to point out that Rush resides in a $75 million mansion in a very wealthy, enclosed enclave in Palm Beach, Forida. And of course, lest we forget, how about Rush's little "habit?" For aside from his luxurious living standards, I have no doubt as well that the fat, worthless shit heel probably consumes enough vicodin and oxycontin, of which the cost of that hobby alone, could probably fund a few state's child poverty prevention programs.

So - please - commentary section is open -- educate this "elite", evil librul as to what it is about this perfumed turd of a man that impresses you all so much.

Here's another clip from this week of your "hero" righties ---


Meanwhile -- in Wingnuttiaville . . . . . .

At least they're cannibalizing their own kind . . .

The man who owns a bounty hunting firm tracking Minuteman founder Chris Simcox is himself a former Minuteman, one who has personal beef with Simcox.

Simcox, who co-founded the Minuteman Project in 2005 to protect the U.S.-Mexico border from illegal immigrants, has been court-ordered to stay away from his ex-wife and to surrender his firearms to the Scottsdale Police Department. His ex-wife requested the order after, she says, Simcox pointed a gun at her and threatened to kill her and her children.


America's energy "expert" speaketh . . .

This is the dim bulb that John McCain tried to put over on us all as being the one individual who "knows more about energy [policy] than probably anyone else in the United States of America."

Every time I think of how close we came as a nation to having a Vice President Palin, a thunderous shudder rumbles down my spine.

He's Certifiably Something . . .

New meaning to the term "board certified" -- Teabagger style:

The American Board of Medical Specialties lists 24 approved certification boards for practicing physicians. To be a "board certified" doctor, as Rand Paul claims, he would need recognition from the American Board of Ophthalmology, the nation's main ophthalmological certification group.

He doesn't. Paul had certification from the board, but let it lapse. He is now recognized by the National Board of Ophthalmology.

And what's the National Board of Ophthalmology? I'm glad you asked. That's a separate certification organization, created by Rand Paul and his relatives, that recognizes Rand Paul. Rand Paul, in fact, is listed as the "owner/president" of his own certification board.

The Louisville Courier-Journal sought comment from Paul on this, the candidate said he was unwilling to "go through all that right now." Asked when he might be willing to discuss his own professional background, Paul said, "Uh, you know, never."

Paul's wife is the vice president of the National Board of Ophthalmology, and was asked what requirements the board makes for certification. She refused to say.

Well imagine that! What a neat trick! So neat in fact, I think I'll create my own certification board for neurology, make my wife Vice-President of the board, and certify myself as a brain surgeon. Weeeeeeeeeeeeee dogggggggggggggggggggggy!

If this guy Rand Paul isn't the poster-child for teabagging wing nuttery, I don't know who is.
