“We end this week in the way it began – with America’s resident dunce, Sarah Palin, scraping the barrel of her long deceased mind, and using her all-time favorite analogy in an attempt to sound intelligent about the national debt…
When Mrs. Palin invoked slavery, she doesn’t just prove her rank ignorance. She confirms that if anyone truly qualified for a dose of discipline from Thomas Thistlewood, then she would be the outstanding candidate.”
“[D]o you think Ted Cruz is a bit like the David Koresh of the Republican Party? He’s a bit like a character who believes himself to be anointed, believes himself to be a prophet, ignores everything, and torches the place in the process.”
“[T]the IRS is being used in exactly the same way as they tried to use the President’s birth certificate.
You see, for Republicans like Darrell Issa – who knows something about arson – the IRS now stands for something inflammatory. Those three letters are now on fire with political corruption and malfeasance burning hot just like that suspicious fire that engulfed Mr. Issa’s warehouse back in 1982. And, despite the complete lack of any evidence linking the President to the targeting of Tea Party groups, Republicans are using it as their latest weapon in the war against the black man in the White House.
…[W]e welcome the latest phrase in the lexicon of Republican attacks on this president – the IRS. Three letters that sound so innocent, but we know what you mean.”
“We should point out that when you listen to someone like Rush Limbaugh, the sort of comedy that he enjoys generally is sexist, homophobic, and racist. But they don’t have any problems with all of that.”
“A teenage taste of beer aside, Mitt Romney does not consume alcohol. Which begs the question, will total abstention put his candidacy, perhaps even this great nation in jeopardy?”
“[W]hen we last saw the Republican front-runner Rick Santorum speaking before a crowd yesterday, all we could think of was George Orwell’s novel 1984 about a society dominated by the most extreme form of totalitarianism…
If you listen carefully to Rick Santorum, he sounds more like Stalin than Pope Innocent III.”
“[I]t’s interesting when you hear Herman Cain talk about alligators in the moat and an electrified fence, and then you have Rick Perry talking about using predator drones across the area. Those two are reflected also in Europe.
Do you know this week the German government issued an appeal to the public to help find a group of neo-Nazis who they believe are responsible for 10 murders. This week.
…And what you’re seeing in France is the lead candidate for the presidential election next year is the daughter of Jean-Marie Le Pen, Marine Le Pen, and guess what? He is a far-right racist.”
“And on the issue of Iran, does Cain remind you at all of Dick Cheney and that long roster of chicken hawks who’ve rabidly pushed for U.S. military action there?”
