Must Make This An Entertaining Year

Mitt Romney apparently won Michigan after all. I say apparently because a couple of weeks from now, when they've counted all the votes, it could turn out that Santorum won. Of course by then, Mittmentum will have carried him past super Tuesday.

Listen you guys, you need to forget the concept that Mitt is more "electable" than Rick. Either one is going to lose to Obama. What you need to focus on now is losing with honor. Run the guy who embodies the conservative spirit! Put him out there and let him articulate your principles! Let the world know how much to hate education and women and blah people! Fly the Santorum flag high, and cover yourselves with it.

Show Me The Magic!

Today is the Michigan primary - today is the day that Mitt Romney could begin his inevitable fall, to be replaced by America's next president, the smartest and most popular man in the whole world. Cross your fingers everybody, and hope that somehow Santorum loses by a significant margin even though the polling suggested otherwise!

Democrat Lawmaker Caught Sending Creepy Texts

It's not always Republicans who are behind behavior like this! You may find that comforting.

Federal agents are investigating Florida House Rep. Richard Steinberg for sending a series of suggestive and harassing text messages to a married Miami female prosecutor, court records show.

The dozens of messages, sent over the course of more than three months last fall, were sent from a phone that used software to disguise the number. The victim, Assistant U.S. Attorney Marlene Fernandez-Karavetsos, repeatedly begged the anonymous sender to leave her alone.

When U.S. Secret Service investigators traced the Yahoo screen name, "itsjustme24680," it led to a phone and home Internet account registered to Steinberg, a former Miami Beach commissioner whom Fernandez-Karavetsos knew only professionally.

Late Wednesday, Steinberg — in response to a request for comment from the Miami Herald — admitted in an email that he was behind the messages.

"I acknowledge and take full responsibility for sending inappropriate and unsolicited messages to Mrs. Marlene Fernandez-Karavetsos, whom I have known for more than 15 years. I deeply regret and wholeheartedly apologize for the disrespect that I have shown her, her husband and my constituents," he said through a spokesman.

"Most importantly, words cannot express how sorry I am to my wife, for the disrespect I have shown her, and my entire family."
What was he thinking, you might ask? But really, you'll be much happier if you never know.

Children: They Are Simply Not Pulling Their Weight

This year's pre-election rhetoric is reeeeeeally interesting. For example, check out Tennessee Republican Kevin Kookogey!

As more Williamson County schools begin to serve breakfast to students, the county’s Republican Party chairman, Kevin Kookogey, says it is not the role of the government to feed people.

School officials announced in January the goal to offer breakfast at all schools as a part of the National School Breakfast program, which reimburses the district through the U.S. Department of Agriculture for each meal served.

Whether students qualify for free and reduced prices for the meal or they pay full price, the district essentially receives money back from the government.

Kookogey took aim at schools providing students with breakfast via a letter posted on the county Republican Party website.

“I am sure you have heard about this happening in other areas, but ladies and gentlemen, Williamson County, one of the wealthiest counties in the nation by any measure, is now operating under a perverse incentive to increase the number of students taking government hand-outs,” Kookogey wrote. “Of course, those handouts are courtesy of you and me, the federal taxpayers.”
The problem with free breakfasts for kids, of course, is that it disincentivizes them. If we are giving them a healthy breakfast, what will motivate them to get janitorial jobs? Some little girl is walking away from that job selling artificial flowers right now, because she doesn't need to pay for an Egg MacMuffin. If poor children in one of the wealthiest counties in the nation can't be forced to work for the 1%, then we have achieved nothing!

He's Still Totally Socialist

Here's a screen grab from Politco, a few hours ago.

Strangely that union, Wisconsin 1948, has a flag that looks exactly like the Wisconsin state flag. In fact, that's what it is.

I think I see what's going on here. When conservative commentators say that the unions are against Scott Walker, they mean the entire state of Wisconsin is against Scott Walker. When they call the unions "thugs" they mean Wisconsin is a state of thugs. And so on.

Quote of the Day: Sarah Should Run Edition

"Truly, it is a war on our religious liberties and that violation of conscience that he would mandate that is un-American because it violates our First Amendment in our Constitution."

Good news, disappointed Republicans! You finally have an unbeatable weapon for 2012. RICK SANTORUM! Stop wasting your time with those centrists and put all your energy into the real conservative who can beat Obama (source: Rasmussen) this November.

Nanny Statism

Michele Obama's heavy socialist hand has reached all the way from Washington to Florida!

Florida state Rep. Ronda Storms has attracted media attention for proposing state legislation that would, among other things, expand the list of foods people can’t purchase with food stamps.

Storms (R) has submitted a bill that would prohibit participants in the federally funded, state-administered Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) from using food stamps to buy “foods containing trans fats; sweetened beverages, including sodas; sweets, such as Jello, candy, ice cream, pudding, popsicles, muffins, sweet rolls, cakes, cupcakes, pies, cobblers, pastries and doughnuts; and salty snack foods, such as corn-based salty snacks, pretzels, party mix, popcorn and potato chips” and other foods of the unhealthful variety. If passed, the law would also bar food-stamp use in restaurants. The proposed SNAP purchase restrictions are part of a bill targeting what Storms deems inappropriate uses of federal assistance funds.
Seriously, I kind of like this idea if only because it would probably encourage the marketing of foods which are "bill-safe", cheap, nutritious and not loaded up with fat and sugar (fat). I can't see a downside to this - if you're enraged by the poor using government money to buy Twinkies, you gotta look at this as at least an improvement, and if you're equally enraged by the most affordable food being pure swill, then again, woo hoo! Won't pass, of course, because of the Con Agra lobbyists.Still, interesting.

Look Upon Your Works Ye Mighty, And Despair

Mitt-mentum is building following his win at the Nevada caucus this weekend, if building is the term you use to describe "declining."

The final results are in for the Nevada caucuses, nearly two days after the events were held. Mitt Romney finished with 50.1% of the vote – slightly down on his 2008 result in the same state. Newt Gingrich came second with 21.1%, Ron Paul was third on 18.8% and Rick Santorum came in last with 10%.
Slightly down! From his results when he ran against John McCain!

I'd like to make my endorsement for President now. I endorse the Sweet Meteor of Death.
