“A ventriloquist can always find a good dummy. The extreme right wing down here (in South Carolina) finds a black guy to be senator and claims he’s the first black senator since Reconstruction and then he goes to Washington, D.C., and articulates the agenda of the Tea Party.”
“You’ve heard the news from North Korea, how the young head of that country just executed his guardian uncle, Well, back here in America, the right wing is acting if not as brutally, certainly as crazily.
It’s hard to tell who’s calling the shots in this crowd. Radio man Mark Levin denounced today Speaker John Boehner as utterly feckless — that means weak — for backing that little budget deal and trying to avoid another government shutdown.
Glenn Beck condemns the Republican speaker as not just a liberal, but get this, he’s calling him a progressive. Oh, my God. Acting like a king of the crazies, Beck then says Ted Cruz is being a good right-wing boy in opposing the budget deal in the Senate — and I can’t believe the way he says this — because, quote, “he did what we told him to” — “We,” Glenn Beck and company.
So now the cat’s out of the bag. The people calling the shots are the loudest, angriest, nastiest voices in the right-wing media. The people marching to their tune, always marching away from any deal with the president, are the Cruzes, the Rand Pauls, and of course, the Mike Lees.”
“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.”
“Does the majority will still matter? There’s the fact that he is President. Is it paramount? Is that to be respected? You look at Cruz’s face. He doesn’t respect the election of President Obama, the reelection of President Obama. You look at Mike Lee. They all run around as if we got all of these white people out this little minority of the country. ‘But they’re better Americans than the rest and we represent them.'”
“Highest level of racism was showed yesterday when Republicans forced a shutdown of our government. Mostly because our President is black.”
“Every Tea Party member should be horsewhipped.”
“That’s a scandal — those people [opposing usage of Obamacare exchanges] are guilty of murder in my opinion.”
