The Exquisitely Bitter Wit & Wisdom of G-Eminem

Great news: unmanned flying arsenals of death soon to fill our skies.

It is crystal clear that if the Minnesota Legislature goes forward with plan to commit public monies to a new Viking stadium, the GOP will be on record overriding a Minneapolis Charter Amendment that requires a public referendum for any spend greater than $10M on a sports facility.

Does the GOP want to go into election season having circumvented a mechanism designed to protect taxpayers?

My last 5 new twitter followers are scantily clad women whose “user profile doesn’t exist”. That’s totally normal, right?

Comment – Herman Cain has apparently recommended you to his followers.

If we were preparing for a European land war with the Soviets c.1986, this would alarm me.

But we’re not, so it doesn’t. Remember, “conservatives”, the warfare state is just the flip side of the welfare state. When either gets bigger, liberty gets smaller.

#Newt is an expert in “space issues”. He wrestles with space every time he has to get in and out of a booth at Burger King.

In a world fraught with uncertainty, one thing we can be sure of is the fact that Newt Gingrich has already consumed more calories this morning than you will all weekend.

One of the saddest thing about today’s “conservative” movement is it’s utter lack of intellectual heft. Allen West is a walking, talking cartoon.

#Newt just warned a Florida audience that Iran could easily blow up Jacksonville with a nuclear weapon. He’s become a caricature.

Political Fluency – Iran made that threat when Tebow was there. The new target is Denver.

Paper money eventually returns to its intrinsic value — zero. ~Voltaire

When the $ collapses, as it soon will, the marvel won’t be that it did so, but that it managed to avoid this fate for over 4 decades.

And the timing couldn’t be better for Minnesota taxpayers.

It would be difficult to overstate just how happy this makes me.

Pat Shortridge just announced Allen West will be the keynote speaker at this year’s Lincoln-Reagan dinner.

Terrific. Perhaps some attendees with a conscience will tell this tea party fraud who voted for the indefinite detention of American citizens under the auspices of the NDAA to, “get the hell out of America.”

And we’re nowhere near bottom because the government is desperately trying to keep housing prices artificially inflated. Very poorly, I might add.

Home prices keep falling, even with low interest rates and recovering economy

If you don’t think it’s going to be Romney-Rubio, you’re huffing compressed air.

Political Fluency – Looks like this is the right week to quit sniffin’ glue.

What’s that? You needed one more reason not to support Romney? Here you go.

Romney supports automatic hikes in minimum wage

 

__

Billionaire to endorse multi-millionaire? This is what counts as a coveted endorsement in #GOP presidential politics. #StupidParty

__

I’ve been deluged with Mitt Romney emails this week which, I can only assume, is because I once made the mistake of sending money to Tim Pawlenty.

Political contributions, like herpes, are forever.

Madonna has been upgraded to ‘probable’, as in, she’ll probably do things with and to her body that are probable to make us all throw up in our mouth.

Show will go on: Madonna to play halftime with hamstring injury

Friends of mine who have had their identity stolen have described a feeling of being violated, a sense of grief and resignation, followed by months of contending with creditors to restore their good name and credit.

Yup. That’s pretty much what it’s like getting your name removed from every godforsaken Republican fundraising list I have managed to find myself on over the last 2 decades.

“Donations to Planned Parenthood should be safe, legal, and voluntary.” ~Iowahawk

You know what’s awesome? Listening to Davis’ ‘Complete Birth of the Cool’ and sippin’ some cabernet. And pretending Western Civ. is not about to implode.

The rich and beautiful are making provisions to escape this teetering Jenga pyramid known as the US of A.

Do you know who knew how to party? The Borgias, that’s who.

It’s time we finally have a presidential candidate willing to confront, head-on, the contraception menace:

“One of the things I will talk about, that no president has talked about before, is I think the dangers of contraception in this country.” ~Sen. Rick Santorum
