Oh’ oh’, looks like “Joey” got caught in a lie and needs to go to confession. The U.S. Catholic Bishops put out a press release today saying in the politest terms Biden is lying sack of ****.

It's my understanding there is a book out entitled the Lizard King which is an account of the political life inside the Obama WH. It's from an anonymous staffer who details the paranoia of David Axelrod and (I love this) their observations that all the Senior political advisors have IQ's under 90). Bwa,bwa,bwa,bwa,bwa. I wouldn't stop there, anybody checked Obama's?? LOL, bwa,bwa,bwa,bwa,bwa,bwa.

The Peace Prize has been a sick joke ever since Yassir Arafat won it, and has gone totally into the toilet with winners like Al Gore, Jimmy Carter, Mohammed El Baradei, and of course the wholely undeserving Barack Obama. Awarding the prize to the corrupt bureaucracy of the EU is just a continuation of the sick joke.

And now, to add more clownishness to the already terminally clownish Obama campaign, some idiots are planning what they call a Million Muppet March to "save" Big Bird. No mention of when they plan a million person march to save our ambassadors and security personnel. You know, the real people who are being murdered while Obama plays Spin the Bottle with PBS.

Not to belabor a point. But the big tell on which way the Joe Biden-Eddie Haskell Event went? The crescendo of Nooshnutz™ bellyaching freakout about the “tone” and the “disrespect.” My particular favorite was a well-known female impersonator—whose references to a politician as a “douchebag” MSNBC had to repeatedly bleep out—the one who jokes about taking baseball bats to liberals and feeding liberal Supreme Court justices rat poison—whining that Joe was “really so rude."

Seriously. F* these people, and laugh uproariously as you do. So long as they’re whining, we’re winning. And so’s America. November 6 can’t come fast enough.

Meanwhile, Your Moment of Zen: Redneck, still keepin’ it classy.

Oh, my stars and garters! Winifred has finally found a real racist! Quick, get me some smelling salts.

Meanwhile, as Winifred climaxes over his discovery of an offensive shirt, we have multiple unhinged leftists threatening to murder Romney.

But sure, the racist shirt is FAR worse, right Winifred?

Wish I'd have been at that rally... I would have loved to press that guy into a corner and find out whether he's a) a full blown racist piece of shit or b) a pot-stirring Democrat plant put in place for a photo op to be spread around the web by more militant leftists.

Why don't they interview these people? It's been my experience you can find out just who these people are within about 2 minutes of talking to them. I've seen it go both ways and rarely is it a complicated analysis of what the person's intentions are.

Hate exist at many levels, but whether it is real or manufactured... that's the question (and often a question some choose to pursue the answers to).

In other news... Twitter turned into a verbal riot last night over this story, especially when people pointed out that these things happen.

The argument seemed to go awry when liberals began threatening to kill conservatives like Todd Kincannon (don't worry, he's used to it) and Mitt Romney as well. "Tolerant leftists", ya know... they love a good debate right up until they've realized they've lost and start threatening the lives of conservatives and their presidential candidate.

I didn't have to even read the article to know some demwit fired shots at a democratic campaign office to gin-up sympathetic feeling for those ever so down trodden demwits.

Let's all be on the lookout for the hanging nooses next. Those will be coming any day now over signs of Barry with the inevitable disclosure that it was the demwits again. LOL.

Another video to entertain our leftist friends on a nice slow Sunday morning.

Grab a big mug of black coffee, settle in, and enjoy.

As I've written many times and backed up by real world examples; liberals look at minorities as stupid and plan their lives for them accordingly. Another example:

"Palm Beach, Fla. (CBS TAMPA) – The Florida State Board of Education passed a plan that sets goals for students in math and reading based upon their race."

Not surprisingly according to how liberals perceive them African-Americas and Hispanics don't have to meet the same standards as White and Asian students as we all know 2+2=4 for Hispanics and African-Americans is tougher than for White and Asian students.

I can't believe David Axelrod is still accusing Romney of politicizing the attacks in Libya, when he was the only one who responded to it in a Presidential manner, while the President and his administration still continues to lie about what they knew and how they politicized it from the very onset.

Spin fail.

So THAT"S where his tax plan came from!

Tom, last night when I posted the front page article about the Florida Board of (non)Education, I had missed your post above. You beat me to the punch. ;-)

By the way, I just mailed in my absentee ballot. I tried as hard as I could, but I could not find one single Democrat worthy of support. Back in the '70s and '80s, there were quite a few Democrats that got my vote. But then, that was before the D party was completely co-opted by the barking moonbats of the looney left.

Speaking of "where have they real Democrats gone?" I came across a Dem. U.S. Senator who I was not familiar with named William Proxmire from Wisconsin. He had a ‘Golden Fleece’ award he handed out for government waste. The MSM back then who shockingly to most Americans today found this news worthy would actually curry favor with Sen. Proxmire to be the first to find out what this "award" would be for that month so they could put it on their news. He had other views that may not have aligned up with mine but I tell ya' if he's a Senator from Missouri today I would given him a VERY strong look….

Some of the early voting get-out-the-vote just seems so wrong on every level.

In Iowa early in-person voting started before October started.

Obama is holding campus events near early voting sites, hoping to pied-piper idiot college kids to the polls. Wednesday he will be at Cornell College in Mount Vernon, Iowa. The advance press mentions the voting site on campus.

"The campaign has not released details of the President Obama’s visit to the 159-year-old private college, but he’s expected to have a late morning event at approximately the same time as satellite voting at Cornell’s Cole Library."

Entire story here.

So the point is to go to colleges and get someone like Bruce springsteen or Justin Long (whoever that is) to lead college kids to the early voting site.

Springsteen announcement here.

Remember Springsteen was used as bait to attract reportedly 80,000 people to Madison, Wisconsin in support of Kerry. springsteen played a total of 2 songs, then they tried to lead all of the crowd to early voting. Reports at the time were that they scheduled the rally for the same time as the state teacher's convention, plus they bussed in attendees from other states. Some reports afterwards stated that the in-person early voting on that day was less than it had been the previous day, so maybe it doesn't work to ask college kids to see Springsteen then stand in line to vote for long periods of time. Especially when they were not told in advance that there would be just 2 songs played.

I question the entire early in-person voting process. I understand absentee voting, although I wish it was allowed only for those with an excuse of some sort.

It's definitely wrong on many levels... most importantly that it invites corruption

Disgraced former House Speaker joins Rush, tips his hand:

“Remember that Paul Ryan is—this is his first big national moment. He was two years old when Biden became a US senator . . . Last night in ninety minutes, Paul Ryan—much more than just getting the nomination—Paul Ryan became somebody who is real. People in your own poll showed they thought he was knowledgeable, competent, capable . . .”

Wait, uh, what? That three-shift lie factory towering intellect of policy wonk who was going to kick that befuddled gaffe-tastic geezer's a$$? Did not, uh, urinate on the stage (that we know of)? Geez, talk about your soft bigotry of drastically lowered expectations . . .

That “debate participation” certificate is posted on Eddie Haskell’s Mom’s fridge. Joe went home to a cigar and a single-malt, no ice thanks. [sounds of laughter]

Ha ha ha ha... you're STILL on this delusion that Joe Biden kicked ass? Wow!
I thought for sure those mushrooms would have worn off by now.
You HAVE to get me the name of your hook-up.

My guess is tonight you'll be saying Obama kicked ass regardless of performance as well. "Did you see that... Obama made a single point... #WINNING!!! He introduced himself with such an ass-kicking tone, Romney camp should just pack it up and go home, as soon as they're done crapping themselves."

... that is assuming you're not like the other moonbats and already selling it as a win.

It won't matter how awful Romney makes Obama look tonight,you have little choice but to declare Obama as the winner tonight, not if you want a chance in November. Considering this will be a mixture of his domestic and foreign policy failures, that's going to be a pretty tough task. I know Obama's been practicing hard again (still utilizing the energy and brilliance of John Kerry /sarcasm) but you can rest assured Romney will be out there ready to attack Obama on everything he couldn't get to the first debate and what Ryan only had a chance to get to tackle during the last debate / interruptathon. "We" didn't know about Libya. The $300 million cuts to security forces in Libya (major lie). Solar Energy, Fast n Furious, GMs "success", etc, etc, etc... the list goes on.

Oh, and remember when I said the ladies sure do like this Paul Ryan guy?
Yeah... since then, this happened.
