“We can’t spend money that liberally in the city of Atlanta.”
“Everybody wants to shoot each other and I just want to stop that the best I can.”
Harry Reid goes concern trolling: Warns of 2016 event that would mean ‘the end of the Republican Party’ [video]
It’s nice of Harry Reid to show such concern for the GOP’s well-being:
Reid: If I didn’t care so much about our country, I would hope he would get the Republican nomination for president, because that would be the end of the Republican Party.
What a State Atty. General (and Candidate for Governor) Looks Like in the Middle of an Underage Alcohol Party
There was a time when alcohol-fueled teen parties either went silent or busted at the seams if an adult walked in.
But not only did the sweaty shindig pictured below continue apace after a grownup showed up (he’s in the middle wearing the long-sleeved white-collared shirt holding a cell phone) — the adult in question is Maryland Attorney General Doug Gansler.
Rep. Steve Cohen (D-Tenn.) branded Tea Party members of Congress as “domestic enemies” during an appearance on MSNBC Saturday morning.
“Really, you got to think — we take an oath to support the country against all enemies, foreign and domestic,” Cohen said. “These are the domestic enemies.”
The comments were aimed at Tea Party members of Congress who voted against the debt deal that raised the U.S.’ borrowing limit and reopened government.
A Yale University professor says he was surprised by the results of a survey measuring “education, religiosity, ideology and science comprehension,” when he found that identifying with the Tea Party actually correlated positively with science comprehension.
“As I pushed the button to run the analysis on my computer, I fully expected I’d be shown a modest negative correlation between identifying with the Tea Party and science comprehension,” Yale University Professor Dan Kahan wrote in a report.
Spite House Shutdown Theater continues to backfire.
Citizens are reopening their inns and restaurants, delivering Barrycades to the White House, and protesting the closure of monuments and memorials. And they’re placing the blame where it belongs: with President Petulant whose shutdown shenanigans are preventing weddings from taking place in national parks.
“Bill, who had been stationed in Kabul, Afghanistan, surprised his dad at a surprise 85th birthday party. Bill’s dad, Charles, (a 3 war veteran) walked into the room and was surprised to see several family members and friends, but his biggest surprise was when Bill and his family walked in!” -Lori E.

Earlier this week, Cher pounded out her all-caps belief that some members of Congress need a “good whipping.” But hey, why stop at drawing blood?
The perpetually mouth-frothing diva is just about ready to finish this. She concluded her latest Twitter diatribe from Europe with an oh-so-civil proposal for getting “TBAG” lawmakers out of the way: “MAYBE WE SHOULD DEEP 6 THEIR WEAK ASS’S.”
Today, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid again referred to congressional conservatives as “anarchists,” and he’s upped the ante to “suicidal anarchists.” Democrats employed the same scare tactic as the country headed toward the fiscal cliff, which the country went off, and the landing wasn’t nearly as hard as advertised.
When it comes to wanting to do away with Obamacare, if Reid’s name calling is correct, then over half the country belongs to the Tea Party.
President Obama met with Organizing for Action today, and even though the nonprofit group runs both the @BarackObama Twitter account and barackobama.com, the organization is independent of the president and they’re really just good friends. Also on hand was Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, who suggested that his colleague Mitch McConnell tried to be more than friends with the Tea Party. In fact, he tried to make love to the Tea Party, but it didn’t go very well.
Kenny has provoked a strong backlash by pushing for access to abortion when a woman threatens suicide, a move that opponents say could easily open the floodgates to abortion on demand.
Tea Party leader Becky Gerritson gave a passionate testimony during Tuesday’s House Ways and Means committee hearing on the Internal Revenue Service’s targeting of conservative groups.
“I’m not begging my Lord’s for mercy. I’m a born-free American woman, wife, mother, and citizen. And I’m telling my government that you’ve forgotten your place,” a tearing up Gerritson said.
Missouri State Speaker Pro Tem Jason Smith easily won tonight’s special election in Missouri’s 8th District and will head to Washington, D.C., to work alongside fellow conservatives in the House. Tea Party favorite Smith, 32, was endorsed by Sarah Palin, Mike Huckabee and Rick Santorum, as well as the National Rifle Association.
