The Crying Game

The Crying Game

“Scott Walker just can’t say no. And he might talk his way out of the presidency.

“There’s a funny thing about the former Republican presidential frontrunner: The governor has a curious verbal tic—well known among some Walker watchers but largely ignored by everyone else—where, well, he says yes to everything.

“Ask him a question at a press conference or in a gaggle, and he’ll bob his head up and down while saying something like “Yeah” or “Yeah, absolutely.” He says that the way other people might say “Um,” or “Listen,” or “Hmm.” It’s a filler word.”

There’s a word for a person who can’t say ‘no’.

Well, as we said back home, “$20 same as in town.” Seems to fit.

One Lump of Stupid or Two, John Kasich

So what is it with Republicans running with convicts? Maybe they only hang out with their own kind, you know, crooks?

$60 million state contract awarded to ethics violator’s company draws scrutiny

A Columbus contractor’s company has won a state contract for the first time since he was jailed 18 years ago for his role in a gubernatorial ethics scandal, state records show.

The two-year, estimated $60 million contract has drawn a protest from a competing bidder, who accused Gov. John Kasich’s administration of violating state law by giving preferential treatment to the winning contractor.

The company, which hired one of Kasich’s closest political advisers to help it win the contract, says the protest is just “sour grapes” from a rival firm.

So, in the year of our Lawd in which crony capitalism is the campaign issue, Kasich gives a fat contract to a connection. The whole story is pretty damning.

The Kim Davis Process Tree

Kim Davis is the center of the religious freedom battle to practice as they see fit – no matter how much hate, bigotry, lawlessness or idiocy they may show. Kim said God told her that she should not be signing any marriage certificates that would join a man and man or a woman and a woman in a union under her God.

And what was the process that Kim used to get to that decision. Let’s take a look

Mike (Gomer) and Jetherine (the Gomerette) Huckabee

“I spoke with Kim Davis this morning to offer my prayers and support,” Huckabee said. “I let her know how proud I am of her for not abandoning her religious convictions and standing strong for religious liberty. She is showing more courage and humility than just about any federal office holder in Washington.

“Kim is asking the perfect question: ‘Under what law am I authorized to issue homosexual couples a marriage license?’ That simple question is giving many in Congress a civics lesson that they never got in grade school,” Huckabee added. “The Supreme Court cannot and did not make a law. They only made a ruling on a law. Congress makes the laws. Because Congress has made no law allowing for same sex marriage, Kim does not have the constitutional authority to issue a marriage license to homosexual couples.

“Kim is a person of great conviction,” Huckabee continued. “When people of conviction fight for what’s right they often pay a price, but if they don’t and we surrender, we will pay a far greater price for bowing to the false God of judicial supremacy. Government is not God. No man – and certainly no unelected lawyer – has the right to redefine the laws of nature or of nature’s God. Five unelected lawyers have abused their power by ruling in favor of a national right to same-sex marriage with no legal precedent and with nothing in our Constitution to back it up. They have violated American’s most fundamental right guaranteed by our Constitution – religious liberty.

“I stand with Kim Davis and every American of faith under attack by Washington elites who have nothing but disdain for us, our faith and the Constitution,” Huckabee concluded.

Xristians: Lock-up Yer Wimmins and Strippers, Josh Duggar Is On The Loose!

SirenSirenJosh Duggar is missing from treatment center: report

Admitted serial sister-fondler and stripper-beater Josh Duggar  has gone missing (or maybe never reported in) from Reformers Unanimous, where they were going to Yank-Away-His-Wank-Spank-Bank! Be careful, he is considered horny and dangerous!

“Today marks one full week since Josh Duggar was reported to have entered a rehab facility by the name of Reformers Unanimous, which is a facility that his parents, Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar have supported many times in the past. The statement by his parents did not name the treatment center that Josh was attending.”

So, wait a minute. Then you don’t know for sure that’s where Josh is keeping his Devil Hands, um, busy?

“…There is only one big problem with that assumption. Not a soul in Rockford, Illinois has actually spotted Josh Duggar among the individuals receiving treatment at RU. He hasn’t been seen coming or going from any of the mandatory church services at North Love Baptist Church. This is especially odd considering the rules at Reformers Unanimous posted on their website claim it would be a mandatory part of everyone’s recovery process at RU. There has been absolutely no sightings of Josh anywhere in Rockford or RU. No sightings at all.”

So why did anyone think he was there?

“Many of the media outlets seized upon Reformers Unanimous as the the treatment facility because of Jim Bob and Michelle’s involvement with the center. That, combined with the flight records of the Duggar‘s private plane showing a late night trip to Rockford, Illinois with a ten minute turn-around time between arriving at the Rockford airport and the aircraft departing for a return to the Springdale airport seemed to indicate that RU was where Josh would be serving out his long term ‘treatment’ for sex and pornography addiction.”

work the poleBut we only have the infamous, lying word of the lying Duggars that roaming-hands Josh is in rehab and not down at the local strip club, working his pole, so to speak.

So: 1) Where is Josh? 2) What is the real nature of his re-hab 3) the Duggars have a private plane? After moaning about how broke they are since Josh screwed the pooch and got their show cancelled?

The 3-Martini Stupid is Served, Gov. Jindal

Ah'm as popular as a fart in church back home!

Ah’m as popular as a fart in church back home!

And once again we turn our attention to the deportable anchor baby (the policies that he has called for would deport himself even at his advanced age back to India), noted boy exorcist-volcano scholar, the leader of the Stupid Party Bobby Jindal who is taking his culture warrior street cred national in 2016 Goat Rodeo.

You see, Bobby, not to be outdone by anyone else got ahead of the laughably doctored Planned Parenthood video meme and by executive fiat defunded the organization in his state, even though the clinics there did not perform abortion services. Planned Parenthood sort of served as the free clinic to at risk, low income populations (ie, “THEM”) who probably were not going to vote for Jindal anyway. And today we have an update, you know, how well that decision is playing out:

“We have a syphilis epidemic right now in New Orleans,” said Dr. Taylor, the medical director overseeing programs to combat sexually transmitted infections for the State Office of Public Health. She is also the director of Louisiana State University’s sexually transmitted infections program, which operates in the wellness center here. Louisiana ranks first among the states in cases of gonorrhea, second in chlamydia, and third in syphilis and H.I.V., according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Charlie Pierce Is God’s Favorite Child – UPDATED

Face-palm PicardDylan Byers joining CNNMoney and CNN Politics

You don’t have to read Brother Pierce for very long before you learn of his special fondness for Mr. Byers. So the news from CNNMoney is probably delighting Charlie today or will soon.

Not to worry Scissorheads, we still have Tiger Beat on the Potomac (thanks Charlie!) to kick around.

UPDATE 1: Told ya so!

Liberty Council Gives Bad Advice to Kim Davis

Liberty kisses JusticeWe have noted that God’s Own Filing Clerk Kim Davis continues her defiance of court orders going all the way up to the Supreme Court. Her refusal to issue marriage licenses to LGBTQ people is putting her clearly in the danger zone.

Behind Davis is legal council in the person of Matt Staver, who is the founder of the virulently anti-gay Liberty Council. Liberty Council has been advising Davis to stand firm in defiance of court orders, which seems like very poor advice coming from lawyers.

Well, I’m only a son-of-a-lawyer, but even I can see that Staver is using his client to further his own political agenda, which hardly seems like he is following the ABA’s own rules of professional conduct.

Could Liberty Council could be sued for malpractice or perhaps punished by the American Bar Association under Rule 10 section 3, perchance?

I think if Davis ends up being forcefully removed from office or put in the sneezer for contempt there is a real chance that some scrutiny might come to Staver; or at least I hope so.
