Sexist Liberals Afraid Pig Farmer Joni Ernst Will Castrate Obama In SOTU Response

biased pic i'm sure
Bobby Jindal. Bob McDonnell. Paul Ryan. My Man Mitch. Thirsty Guy. CMR. Delivering the GOP’s State of the Union rebuttal can launch a starry-eyed Republican to anywhere on a scale of Hapless Presidential Ticket to federal prison. So who, pray tell, will be this year’s sacrificial pap purveyor who argues against middle-class tax cuts on behalf of the GOP? (Please say Joni Ernst. Please say Joni Ernst. Please say — ) Read more on Sexist Liberals Afraid Pig Farmer Joni Ernst Will Castrate Obama In SOTU Response…

Former Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels Is Just Your Average Everyday Book-Burning University President

The few times we ever gave former Indiana Governor Mitch Daniels much thought, he always seemed like a Scott Walker wannabe who was trying to prove that he too could destroy public employee unions and pass “right to work” and just generally be terrible. The biggest difference between them seemed to be that Scott Walker never lost an argument with a door. But now it looks like maybe we misunderestimated Mitch Daniels, because it turns out that he had some awful qualities all his own! The AP reports that emails from 2010 show that Daniels sought to ban Howard Zinn’s A People’s History of the United States from Indiana schools and universities (he considered it “propaganda”) and also tried to cut funding for a professor who had criticized him. We bet that the committee who chose Daniels as president of Purdue University is really happy with this news. (Oh of course they are — he appointed the board of trustees that hired him!)

Nice Time! Supreme Court Says Indiana Slut Clinics Still Allowed To Bankrupt America

How are liberals winning the battle against the Fetal Menace today? Probably a lot of ways, but especially this: The State of Indiana will not be allowed to withhold Medicaid funding from Planned Parenthood! Says who, you ask? The Supreme Court, that’s who! (Actually they didn’t “say” anything, they just coldly and disdainfully “declined” to hear the case like total hardasses because, unique among the three branches of government, the courts don’t have any special incentive to waste everyone’s time putting on circuses to mollify the proles. ) So does this mean your taxes can FINALLY be used to enable the sinful lifestyles of all the wilding sluts you’d be banging or getting banged by if you weren’t bound to your seat by your hopeless addiction to the risible, bias-confirming antics of your Wonket?

Law-And-Order Republicans In Indiana Now Let You Stand Your Ground Against Cops

So here is what we are having a hard time wrapping our puny girly brains around: we remember, due to oldness, when the NRA lobbied to keep Kevlar-piercing bullets legal (for those Kevlar-vested deer), but when did Ted Nugent and pals come to so wholly outrank sensible Establishment Republicans as to get cop-killing legalized? Was it when cops became just another Wisconsin Thug union, along with 9/11 Heroes (firemen) and teachers (teachers)? We will say sure, yes, Wisconsin. And now Mitch Daniels, Indiana governor, has signed a law allowing people to shoot cops who bust into their homes we are not even kidding that is not even a hoax. It is unpossible that anything could go wrong. Read more on Law-And-Order Republicans In Indiana Now Let You Stand Your Ground Against Cops…

Someone Named ‘Mitch Daniels’ Gets 16 Stitches In Head

Nobody was too upset when Mitch Daniels announced yesterday that he wasn’t running for president, because who is Mitch Daniels even? Another old random Republican guy who was perhaps going to “throw his hat in the ring” or whatever they say on the Wolf Blitzer show. But there was some kind of entity very upset when Mitch Daniels refused to run for and then lose the campaign for the GOP nomination: a door. This door is Mitch Daniels’ biggest (and only) fan, so when Mitch said “No,” the door said, “BLAM-O.” (And does Mitch Daniels always do the “jackoff” motion with his hand, while giving speeches? It’s different, at least!) Read more on Someone Named ‘Mitch Daniels’ Gets 16 Stitches In Head…

Huge Scandal Keeping Mitch Daniels Out of the 2012 Race: He’s a Good Dad

Fiscal conservatives love Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels because he loves fiscal conservatism. He loves it so much he declared a “truce” in the culture wars in Indiana so he could focus on it. This upset people, and he eventually had to give in to them, because promising the wingnut faithful an end to non-marital and non-heterosexual and non-coital sexual intercouse is how Republicans are elected, not because America is in love with fiscal conservatism geeks, and if the GOP actually ever won the culture wars, their voters would stop going to the polls. But as Daniels starts to look into joining the presidential race, people who don’t want him in it are trying to shame him into the race by propagating Daniels’ big “SCANDAL”: his wife, whom he has since remarried, divorced him in 1994 and moved to California, leaving him with their four young daughters. Despite not having immediate access to their mother, the children did not die. So the skeleton in Mitch Daniels’ closet is that he’s a good parent?

College Students Get Parents To Buy Mitch Daniels Ad

Here is your first television ad of the Republican primaries! “Students for Daniels,” based at Yale, has bought airtime in southern Iowa during this weekend’s Pro Bowl for this ad about how Obama victimizes dumb blonde coeds looking for a wealthy older man. It would be a fool-proof plan to get Mitch Daniels elected, if anyone ever watched the Pro Bowl. Read more on College Students Get Parents To Buy Mitch Daniels Ad…
