This blog exists to provide Democrats and Liberals with clear, hard, concise branding of the political opposition. We believe that only with this kind of framing will the Democrats overcome the GOP advantage in money and media and consistently win elections. We invite you to use our messaging at the water cooler, in the press release, at the lectern, in the campaign or just to shut up the father-in-law at Thanksgiving (especially to shut up the father-in-law at Thanksgiving). If you like it use it, and please, share it. And please, play-hard-ball.

This is the same Tim Griffin that made a name for himself in the Republican party by scheming to rob Americans of their right to vote. These people are hostile to democracy. If you want to keep yours, best not vote for them.
31% of registered Repubicans believe Obama is a muslim. About the same percentage believe that Obama might just might be the anti-Christ. So at least 1 in 4 Republicans are psychopaths. And oh yeah, the evidence shows right-wing Republicans are prone to violence and must be watched.

Fine. Cut defense. Ain't bi-partisanship grand?
It's worth noting however, that Cantor voted to borrow billions to rebuild Iraq without any problem at all. That apparent inconsistency must be due to the fact he knew most of that money was going to GOP cronies instead of American communities that need it. You're a peach congressman, you're a peach.

As tragic as a billion dollars worth of cuts to education is, this may be as close as the GOP will ever get to going green.

Raw Story: Tea party favorite Rep. Allen West (R-FL) explained Wednesday that he was helping black voters escape slavery of the “21st-century plantation” overseen by black liberals like Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA)... “So I’m here as the modern-day Harriet Tubman, to kind of lead people on the Underground Railroad, away from that plantation into a sense of sensibility,” said West.
We're not sure how participating in the party of the confederate flag and The Southern Strategy makes him the modern-day Harriet Tubman. In fact, it makes him an apologist and promoter of a political party that deliberately built its base with racists.

The EPA protects us from corporations who's only concern is profit. Get rid of it and we'll be killing people all across America. Rick Perry and the Republicans simply want to get rid of government by the people and replace it with corporate rule, and they really don't give a rip how many people get sick or die in the process. This should disqualify them from public office.
We’re calling today on the president of the United States to put a moratorium on regulations across this country, because his regulations, his EPA regulations are killing jobs all across America.

The transnational corporations should be happy about that. People who are clearly hostile to representative democracy should not be allowed to serve in it. When they do, we end up with the truism that Republicans run around saying government doesn't work until they get elected and prove it.

That's not true. Unlike Iraq or Afghanistan, we win a trade war. We're the biggest consumers in the history of the universe. A black hole for consumer goods. We'll consume you to death. At only 4% of the world's population we're responsible for 25% of the world's consumption. We're the only people we need to sell to.
Slap stiff tariffs on all imported goods and we'll fix our economy. Produce at home what we consume at home and we'll fix our economy. Restore the buying power of the great American middle class and we'll fix our economy. It's as simple as that.
Yawn, it happened again. People need to understand that anybody who gives a rip to the degree they need to be outwardly anti-gay is definitely gay themselves. The rest of us just don't care enough about it.

Allow us to retort: You're a multimillionaire who made his money outsourcing American jobs. You're not my friend.

LEE FANG: Were you praying today for reducing the size of government even if it comes to a government shut down?
TOM DELAY: I’m always praying for reducing the size of government!
Yep, they want to reduce the size of government by the people. Republicans would rather have corporate rule and they're not shy about saying so.

On Friday (just below) we posted the quote from S&P that demonstrates this latest GOP lie in the clearest possible way. So no need to post it again. But if you follow the link you'll see that in the backround of his interview is a massive yacht. Which is entirely appropriate given who Republicans represent.

When Republicans win America loses. But Eric Cantor's making money.
If you ever had any doubt the longstanding cesspool that is Republican party voter suppression is deliberate, this should be the end of that.

She goes on to post a picture of a gathering at the camp where Breivik committed his mass murder. Under it she writes: “Note the faces which are more Middle [sic] Eastern or mixed than pure Norwegian.” Well, we note two things... first, what this horrible person espouses is pretty typical of right-wingers. They are a truly dangerous and disgusting bunch. And second, as a Jew one would think Geller would realize that people who respond to "pure" racial rhetoric would just as easily bake her in an oven just because she's Jewish. In fact, they already have. She would do well to rediscover her humanity before she helps it happen again.
