On the heels of the mass murder and shooting at a Tucson “Congress on Your Corner” event with Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, which left 6 dead and twelve injured, Democrat Sheriff of Pima County, AZ, Clarence Dupnik blames Jared Loughner’s mass slaughter on “vitriolic rhetoric” coming from talk radio. He says that we must all remember that psychos like Loughner are more susceptible to this vitriol coming from the “radio business” and the “TV business,” and its message about “tearing down the government.” (Read = Tea Party, Talk Radio, and Fox News)
He also says that all members of Congress, and really all elected officials, face a threat at some point or the other in their careers due to the contentious nature of the laws and bills passed, legislative decisions made, and that unfortunately, Arizona has become the “mecca for prejudice and bigotry” since S.B. 1070 passed. Since when is it the Pima County Sheriff’s countenance to deem what is socially right or wrong, especially when it’s spoken in ignorance of the law? And Sheriff Dupnik might want to reserve his judgment until all is discovered about this case, considering some of Jared’s favorite reads include “Mein Kampf” and “The Communist Manifesto.” Yeah… a real right-wing extremist, for sure.
You loons in California get what you vote for, and thusly what you deserve. Do NOT expect to get a bail-out from the other states (without a fight), and you will reap what you have sown at the ballot box this year.
Can anybody who watches this speech by Brown tell me what in the hell he said? Did he vote for Prop 19 early and partake already? Good Lord, Californians… what the hell is wrong with you? More importantly, what the hell is wrong with Jerry? Is he as high as he sounds? And don’t give me that “tired” crap…others have been awake all night and have sounded coherent. Jerry? Eh, not so much. Perhaps he’s waiting on a message from the mother wheel.
Again, I’m still stunned that you morons voted for this dope over a tried and true successful CEO of a worldwide company, eBay. What on earth do you see in Jerry Brown that you could not get from Meg Whitman?
Oh, never mind… I forgot about the pot and criminal illegal alien votes. Don’t visit your financial woes on the rest of America – keep your fiscal troubles to yourselves, and again, don’t expect a bailout from the rest of us.
BOB SCHIEFFER: Liz Cheney, money in politics. This one is more expensive than the one we had the last time and it was more expensive than the one before. But now, the big question is all of this money that’s coming in that you don’t know where it’s coming from. David Axelrod was on this broadcast last week and was very critical. He said we ought to know where these– these funds are coming from. And Republicans say, well, people have a right to give money anonymously.
LIZ CHENEY: Well, people give money anonymously to both parties. Frankly, I think that it would be a better system if we had no limits on contributions but a requirement for mandatory
transparency and mandatory, we know, within twenty-four hours you’ve to disclose who your donors are. But those aren’t the rules right now. That’s not the law.
BOB SCHIEFFER: But I take if you would like the–
LIZ CHENEY: And David Axelrod did more–
BOB SCHIEFFER: –you would like to see the rules changed.
This was just unreal. From the Round Table on “This Week,” the panel included NYT writer Kate Zernike, author of the book “Boiling Mad” about the Tea Party movement, and Jonathan Karl of ABC News. The subject turned to that of the anti-incumbent mood in the country among voters, and when asked about the Tea Party’s involvement, Kate gave her take on it. Then, Jonathan stepped in and make a snide remark about “kamikaze Republicans,” like Jim DeMint and Sarah Palin perhaps screwing things up for the GOP.
Go ahead, Jonathan… you and your ilk keep that up, and you’ll be blindsided by the landslide that is coming your way in November. Keep it up, buddy, just keep it up.
Recently on RedEye, Coulter was on and they discussed the lunatic political correctness that surrounds this investigation of the Times Square Bomber. Guests Jim Norton, Ann Coulter and Juliette Huddy were cracking up, as was I; especially at Norton’s speculation that Shahzad was just disgruntled because he was recently fired from the “Fertilizer & Firecracker Emporium.”
I just LOVE this show, and Jim Norton is hilarious. Norton & Coulter together are a scream.
