  1. Lindsay Graham continues his mean-spirited ranting which changes nothing and helps nothing, but does keep his teapublicans all riled up and crazy. Sane people find it’s a lot like watching a train wreck when watching him destroy his own integrity and his political party from the inside out. He has given me every confidence he’ll keep up with his churlish fits, thus pleasing his ‘base’ and looking repulsive to everyone else. What was it they were saying about broadening this base? Maybe some other republican can pick up the slack for Graham who doesn’t seem up to the task.

    Lindsey Graham: Hillary Clinton ‘Got Away With Murder’ In Benghazi

    • Where is Graham’s accusation of GWB, Cheney and Rumsfeld getting away with murder for taking us into war under false pretense?

      Or – for that fact – George W. Bush was president while several embassies were attacked and more than four Americans were killed….

      Where is Mr. Graham’s accusation against his own colleagues?

      I suspect Lindsay knows that if Hillary decides to run for president in 2016 – their party will be smacked down like the pesty little cockroach they appear to be…..

      So – the GOP strategy is to demonize Hillary now?

      Yeah, CONS, go for it. Go for Hillary’s jugular and if you think Hillary’s approval rating is high now – you just wait and see what they are come 2015 – while she is hopefully trouncing your next white wealthy CON male who is waiting in the wings to pick up the loser trophy from Mitt the Twit.

  2. Thought for the day: Failure vs. mediocrity

    Most people are more frightened of failure than of mediocrity. It should be the reverse.

    Failure is a broken leg — painful, but easily fixed. Mediocrity is a creeping disease — invisible and insidious — that disables so completely that there’s often no recovery.

  3. Another happy couple —

    Jim Nabors, the Hawaii resident well known for his starring role in the 1960s television sitcom “Gomer Pyle, USMC,” married his longtime male partner early this month, he told Hawaii News Now Tuesday.

    Nabors, 82, said he married his companion of 38 years, Stan Cadwallader, who’s 64, in Seattle on Jan. 15.

    • I’ve always liked Jim Nabors. I do have to chuckle when one goes down the list of actors that have played so many of those good ol’ family values men – in real life they were/are homosexuals – and they all had successful careers.

      Hmmmm……I bet that has got to chafe the chaps of these Fundy CONservatives…

  4. This is cool! First electric car for wheelchair users!

  5. Lindsey Graham, like Jim Nabors, just needs to come out. He’ll feel so much better. 🙂 Maybe he can convince Marcus Bachman to also come out. Closet cases are the meanest people in the world. Congrats to Jim and his hubby. I’m glad they no longer have to hide.

  6. Love the graphic today. Even my hard core conservative neighbor says nothing will improve until we fix congress. Of course, I fear he thinks Huelskamp is the answer. God help us all.

    • If Huelskamp is the answer – I don’t even want to know that damn question….

      Talk about petty, hateful, vengeful, narrow-minded people – no wonder Huelskamp is the Tea Party darling and the Fundies’ Golden Idol ..

      • Huelskamp thought it was so clever when that video came out with all these high school students falling over from hunger – because they all accused Michelle Obama of being a dictator over the school lunch program.

        But…..these same buffons worship St. Ronnie – who actually tried to classify ketchup as a vegetable for school lunches.

        When was the last time you had a big ol’ bowl of the side disk known as ketchup?

        The looks on these CONS faces when I ask them that question is priceless….

        I guess they have that selective memory when it comes to the stupid and idiotic things their Golden Idol – St. Ronnie – actually said.

  7. Let’s take a trip down memory lane – shall we?

    Here is the real facts about George W. Bush years and how many embassies were attacked – and how many deaths and wounded were involved.

    Hmmm……..Lindsay – weren’t you in that same Senate seat you plop your ass in today during those GWB years?

    Why – I do declare – I know you were there – and you were applauding the little Cowboy and his Dick (Cheney) and Rummy (Rumsfeld)

    Lindsay – what was that again about how Hillary got away with murder at Benghazi?

    Please – Lindsay – go peddle your nonsense somewhere else – the majority of Ameircans have caught on to your act of how you’re so outraged……

    Yeah….outraged that you don’t even care what happened under your boy’s watch?

  8. Since we live in Kansas we don’t see up close and personal the wonders of the entire U S of A. So here’s what’s going on in the saner parts of our country — 🙂

    • After you enjoy reading the piece at the link above stay tuned and read some of the comments. Ah, (relaxed sigh). It’s nice to be out of Kansas!

  9. A dream: Remember the talking points of “LESS GOVERNMENT,” “MORE GUNS EQAULS MORE FREEDOM AND LIBERTY,” AND “WE WANT OUR COUNTRY BACK OR WE WANT TO SECEDE.” Well…………..

    Thousands, hell let’s make it millions, of HEAVILY armed ultra conservative families shoehorned into a walled compound, on an island, as far out from everyone as you can get… no food deliveries, all living together with no government. No police. No fire department. No sewers, no drinking water, no electrical grid. No zoning laws, no traffic laws. What could possibly go wrong?

    • I suspect the first major battle will be over whose God can beat up the other guy’s God…

      That particular reason for battle has been waged for a long, long time
