Steele said, “The problem that we have with this president is that we don’t know [Obama]. He was not vetted, folks. … He was not vetted, because the press fell in love with the black man.
Riiiight, the press loves the black guy. That must be why you are so popular and respected and not at all the object of constant ridicule.
"It's hard for me to imagine,'' Boehner said, ''that anyone in the intelligence areas would mislead us... I don't feel.. that I have been misled.''Perish the thought! The CIA stooping to deception? Why the very idea!
Senator Lindsey Graham basically defended the Spanish Inquisition, saying:
“One of the reasons these techniques have been used for about 500 years is that they work”.
If by "work" you mean "get people to confess to witchcraft," then Yeah, good point, Senator!
“I would also point out that CO2, carbon dioxide, is not a pollutant in any normal definition of the term.“And something that the Democrat sponsors do not point out, a lot of the CO2 that is created in the United States is naturally created. You can’t regulate God.Right, anything that's naturally occurring can't be harmful. Oh, you know what else is a naturally occurring substance? Arsenic! Just saying.
(Barton's CO2 diatribe deserves its own post. if I get the time, I may give it one.)
But this is probably the stupidest story of the year so far:Republicans on Wednesday abandoned an effort to label their opponents the “Democrat Socialist Party,” ending a fight within the GOP ranks that reflected the divide between those who want a more centrist message and those seeking a more aggressive, conservative voice.Supporters of the resolution asking the Democratic Party to change its name instead agreed to accept language urging Democrats to “stop pushing our country towards socialism and government control.”Wow! You just got thumped in the last two elections, you've got the ghost of Cheney popping up on TV every couple of days, Your chairman is Micheal Steele, and this is what you're spending your time on? This is the resolution you're debating? Don't you want to be relevant again at some point? Unbelievable!
