It’s fun when these Dems tell us what they really want to do.
DAILY CALLER: Newly released audio contradicts claims of North Carolina’s Democrat Governor Bev Perdue’s press team that her call Tuesday for suspending Congressional election was a joke or hyperbole. In the recording, her tone is matter-of-fact and her comments are part of a serious speech.
“Listen to the Governor’s words: She wasn’t joking at all,” North Carolina GOP spokesman Rob Lockwood told The Daily Caller. “The congressional Democrats are wildly unpopular in North Carolina, so she may have been trying to invent a solution to save their jobs from public accountability.”
“If it was a joke, what was the set-up?,” Lockwood adds. “What was the punch-line? Where was the pause for laughter? It took them three hours to say it was a ‘joke,’ but when that flopped it became ‘hyperbole.’ We’ll just call it an unconstitutionally bad idea.”
Listen for yourself . . .
You see what this is again? These guys are terrorists! You know, Joe Biden, they say he’s getting in a little bit of trouble because he called them terrorists, but that’s exactly what they are.
They’ve taken us hostage again and they’re demanding 100% their ransom. And unless they get 100%, they’re holding a gun to our head. What do you call people who put a gun to your head and say, “Unless you pay me whatever, I’m going to kill you or kill this program.” You know what they call them? Terrorists! Exactly what they are over this FAA.”
So what ever happened to the era of civility in the wake of the Gabby Giffords shooting (that had nothing to do with politics)?
Bill Press is saying that the Republicans are terrorists because hitting the debt ceiling would mean President Obama would have to cut funding for the Federal Aviation Administration and send air traffic controllers home. Obama continues to say he might have to do that anyway.
But hold on a second.
$250 billion comes into the federal treasury every month — even if we had not raised the debt ceiling.
There’s no reason Obama would have to send the air traffic controllers home.
How about shut down the departments of Education, Energy, Commerce, Labor, HUD, large chunks of HHS?
Surely we could do without that tunnel for turtles that was build in Florida with Obama’s stimulus to help turtles pass safely under the highway. How are the turtles going to find that tunnel anyway?
This is the standard liberal playbook whenever there are government budget cuts.
They love to cut the services that people actually want.
The first items to go are always trash collection, fire fighters, police, snow removal — stuff we’ll actually miss.
It’s not Republicans who do this. It’s Democrats.
Just not a man.
This is very strange stuff.
Lawrence O’Donnell seriously might be in need of psychiatric help. It’s hard to imagine any normal red-blooded male acting this way unless he has some kind of mental health issue. Whatever the problem, it’s clear that Lawrence O’Donnell would not have lasted one day under the command of General George S. Patton.
Hey Lawrence, perhaps you should try to follow up Chris Cocker with a YouTube video of your own. Here’s the model for your next performance . . .
Chris Cocker’s famed “Leave Britney Alone” video got him 38,000,000 views on YouTube.
How long will it take O’Donnell to get this many views for his silly show on MSNBC?
Something to think about, Lawrence, for your next career.
Now here’s a question to think about . . .
What would Ray Nitschke think of the sobbing Lawrence O’Donnell . . . as a man?
And here’s the great Ray Nitschke in action . . .
Wouldn’t it be fun to see Ray Nitschke line up against Lawrence O’Donnell?
What a warrior.
He’s calling it the Fok News Channel. I guess it’s supposed to be some kind of parody site.
Olbermann’s new sit is just incredibly funny — NOT.
What is incredibly funny is this . . .
FLASHBACK: I now use this news hook as an opportunity to replay Jon Stewart’s hilarious take on Keith Olbermann’s humorless nastiness

|Special Comment – Keith Olbermann’s Name-Calling|
My question is: Will Keith Olbermann really invest time and/or money creating material for his FOK News site?
He must have a lot of time on his hands.
What Olbermann seems not to understand is that for a parody or satire to be funny, it needs to be rooted in some kind of truth. That is, the targets of the satire need to recognize themselves in the satire.
So, for example, an attempted satire that tried to present Mother Theresa as just like Adolf Hitler probably wouldn’t work because there’s nothing in that theme that’s grounded in any kind of truth.
Now, in the case of Olbermann’s FOK News site, he actually doesn’t seem to be satirizing FOX News — at least most of the time. It seems to be just a straight Lefty site. Hmmm. Very odd.
So Keith, here are some books you should get to learn how to write humor: Comedy Writing Step by Step, or Comedy Writing Secrets, or just read some of Jonathan Swifts’s material, such as A Modest Proposal.
That should get you started on your new comedy career.
Keith, I’m just trying to help you out here.
JEFFREY LORD-AMERICAN SPECTATOR: Now that Keith “Lincoln only lost one election” Olbermann has departed MSNBC, the banner of historical ignorance has been picked up by Chris Matthews.
After playing a soundbite of Minnesota’s Congresswoman Michele Bachmann talking about the Founding Fathers and specifically discussing John Quincy Adams’ opposition to slavery, Matthews went on to disparage Bachmann as a “balloon head” because, according to Matthews, the Constitution deliberately counted slaves as only three-fifths of a person.
This is historical misstatement of a size that makes Matthews look like, well, a balloon head.
Everytime this Congresswoman speaks, I wonder: Is she serious? Or is she just playing a big joke on the American people?
PHILIP KLEIN-AMERICAN SPECTATOR: Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee, a Democrat from Texas, said on Tuesday afternoon that repealing the national health care law would violate the Constitution.
Arguing that the Commerce Clause provides the constitutional basis for ObamaCare, Jackson Lee said repealing the law by passing Republicans’ H.R. 2 violates both the Fifth Amendment’s right to due process and the Fourteenth Amendment’s equal protection clause.
“The Fifth Amendment speaks specifically to denying someone their life and liberty without due process,” she said in a speech on the House floor moments ago. “That is what H.R. 2 does and I rise in opposition to it. And I rise in opposition because it is important that we preserve lives and we recognize that 40 million-plus are uninsured.
She continued, “Can you tell me what’s more unconstitutional than taking away from the people of America their Fifth Amendment rights, their Fourteenth Amendment rights, and the right to equal protection under the law?”
Jackson Lee mentioned the names of several people who she said would be helped by the national health care law, including a schizophrenic, a dialysis patient, and somebody whose mother cannot otherwise get dental care. “I know they would question why we are taking away their rights,” she said.
FLASHBACK: Here Sheila Jackson Lee tells us how wonderful it is to see North and South Vietnam living in peace together, “side by side”
What happened to the new civility?
ABC NEWS: The newfound civility didn’t last long. Political rhetoric in Congress doesn’t get much nastier than the words of one House Democrat during the debate on repealing the health care law.
In an extraordinary outburst on the House floor, Rep. Steve Cohen (D-TN) invoked the Holocaust to attack Republicans on health care and compared rhetoric on the issue to the work of infamous Nazi propagandist Joseph Goebbels.
“They say it’s a government takeover of health care, a big lie just like Goebbels,” Cohen said. “You say it enough, you repeat the lie, you repeat the lie, and eventually, people believe it. Like blood libel. That’s the same kind of thing. And Congressman Cohen didn’t stop there.
