Item: George H.W. Bush witnessed – and apparently approved – a lezbo wedding.
Former President George H.W. Bush was an official witness at the same-sex wedding of two longtime friends, his spokesman said Wednesday.
Bush and his wife, Barbara Bush, attended the ceremony joining Bonnie Clement and Helen Thorgalsen as private citizens and friends on Saturday, spokesman Jim McGrath said.
Thorgalsen posted a photo on her Facebook page showing Bush signing the marriage license as a witness. She captioned the photo: “Getting our marriage license witnessed!”
Reaction: I’m now officially sorry I ever voted for George H.W. Bush.

Item: The Los Angeles Dodgers clinched the NL West title the other day in Arizona – and to celebrate, they climbed the right-field fence and took a dip in the stadium’s open-access pool after everyone had left.
Item: This act pissed off half-assed excuse-for-a-senator RINO McLame:
“Poolgate” reached the nation’s capital Friday when Arizona Sen. John McCain voiced strong displeasure with the Los Angeles Dodgers’ celebration of their National League West title.
After the Dodgers clinched the division with Thursday’s 7-6 win against the Arizona Diamondbacks, roughly half the team celebrated by jumping into the pool behind the right-center field wall at Chase Field.
The revelry upset many players, executives and fans of the Diamondbacks, including McCain, who took to Twitter with this rant:
John McCain @SenJohnMcCain
No-class act by a bunch of overpaid, immature, arrogant, spoiled brats! “The #Dodgers are idiots” http://www.azcentral.com/insiders/danbickley/2013/09/19/the-dodgers-are-idiots/ …

Denizens, consider this comment from Twitcherite “RUexperienced”.
You are correct.
I have posted on a conservative website (Free Republic) since 1998. And have seen a lot of things come and go. Today conservatives are killing their own movement.
Conservatives have always fought against RINOs like Susan Collins and Olympia Snowe, Gov’s Weld, Wilson and Whitman etc.
But since 2006, now the RINO list includes Huckabee, Rick Perry and Tim Paulenty. (the last two being a couple of the most credible people we have). And in the last year, the conservatives that are now RINOs are Rand Paul and Marco Rubio. And what about conservative governors in Ohio, Florida, Arizona, Michigan, etc who are with us on many issues but are trying to expand medicaid under Obamacare? Do we throw all of them out too?
(Sarah Palin and her crowd plays into this “I am more conservative than you” meme and helps to undercut every conservative that is running for office. You should have seen how her people on C4P treated established conservatives like Perry, Cain, Santorum, Bachman and Paulenty. It was disgraceful.
These “conservatives” are NOT of the same mold as Ronald Reagan, who practiced the proverb: “I would rather get a half a loaf than no loaf at all.”
Now, they’re talking about Der Sarahcuda’s ass-reaming of illegal alien (THERE, I SAID IT!!!!!) amnesty turncoat Marco “Si, se puede” Rubio. And “RUconservative” is of the RINO mindset that it’s we conservatives that are torching our own party.
Well, in the first place…it’s not conservatives that are destroying the party – it’s the (do you know how damned difficult it is not to take God’s name in vain here? ) RINOs who are oh-so-happy to lead us off the fucking cliff…just not as fast as the Democrats would. (I actually had some bastard RINO tell me this at a GOP convention once.)
Secondly…note that last line about Ronaldus Magnus.
As much as I love the last real President this country’s had…he screwed the pooch on the 1986 amnesty. He approved amnesty for all the illegals here at the time, with a promise from the Demoscum to reallyreallyreally address border security this time, cross-our-hearts, pinky-finger-swear.
How’d that work out for us, hm?
Let’s get one thing straight, RINO pussies: Where the GOP’s concerned, you need us a helluva lot more than we need you. I no longer feel the compulsion to cast a vote for any Republican – though I’ll happily throw in with any conservative that wants to give it a go.
See, there’s a difference. We’ve been gently trying to tell you that for a long time, yet you still have that predilection to hob-nob on the DC party circuit with the Demoscum and your fellow GOP blue-bloods, with all your laughing at us Great Unwashed for being back-asswards hick-types.
And we’ve pretty much had enough.
Suggest you RINO doucherifles utilize the one collective brain cell remaining amongst you, and think about that for awhile.

IN THE SOUTHERN COMMAND –
“The senior senator of Arizona urged senators to trust House Republicans … and frankly, I don’t trust Republicans,” Cruz said. “It’s the leaders of both parties that got us in this mess. … A lot of Republicans were complicit in this spending spree.”
Guess what? I don’t fucking trust them, either.

And as if you didn’t have enough evidence that the GOP has lost its spine (not to mention its will & its way), here comes the RNC’s own Chief Sniveling Weasel, Prancy Reince-e Priebus, saying that Rob “I Wuv Gayz Now” Portman won’t face any ramifications from suddenly deciding to throw his principles out the window:
Via NRO, he’s careful not to endorse gay marriage himself but he sure does seem chipper at the beginning about the “inroads” Portman’s allegedly made with gay voters.
And this spineless pussy Priebus wrings his hands in severe angst as the base abandons him, and wonders why Republicans don’t win anymore.
Four million GOP voters stayed home last November. And they stayed home because they’re tired of the direction in which the GOP is going.
They’re tired of having RINOs masquerading as presidential candidates forced upon them.
They’re tired of the Republican leadership caving in to the Demoscum.
They’re tired of cowering in fear of a media who
might definitely will portray them in the worst light possible.
And they’re tired of politicians like Widdle Wobbly Portman not standing up for what’s right, even when their family members fail to live up to the standard.
I tell you now, when the GOP decides to man up and grow a backbone, they’ll start kicking Demoscum ass again. Every election. Every time.
But until then, the Republicans can continue to wring their hands in angst & wonder.

Denizens, remember Rob “Hey, I Was A Candidate Too!” Portman? No-name
Congresscritter Senator from Oiho (a little Bambi lingo, there) who ran (snicker) for the GOP nomination for President last year?
Y’know, big-time conservative, gonna save the party, all that mush? Especially being touted as the “pro-life, pro-family” candidate?
Yeah, that one.
Well, his son just came outta the closet and announced he’s a faggot – yeah, that’s right, I said it, do something about it if you don’t like it – and, lo & behold, whaddya know, li’l Robbie ain’t so pro-family anymore, don’tcha know?
Portman voted for the 1996 Defense of Marriage Act, but he now thinks the Supreme Court, which is hearing a challenge to the law this year, should strike it down.
And how does he explain his “growing” (to use a term of the leftists)?
I wrestled with how to reconcile my Christian faith with my desire for Will to have the same opportunities to pursue happiness and fulfillment as his brother and sister. Ultimately, it came down to the Bible’s overarching themes of love and compassion and my belief that we are all children of God. […]
Translation: The chickenshit is more concerned with how men view him than he is with how God views him.
British Prime Minister David Cameron has said he supports allowing gay couples to marry because he is a conservative, not in spite of it. I feel the same way. We conservatives believe in personal liberty and minimal government interference in people’s lives. We also consider the family unit to be the fundamental building block of society. We should encourage people to make long-term commitments to each other and build families, so as to foster strong, stable communities and promote personal responsibility.
In other words, Denizens, we should continue to encourage all heterophobes to go on fucking each other in the ass, and calling it “family”. Because, shut up, homophobe!
This son-of-a-bitch always did have a stench about him during the campaign, and now we know why. He’s a limp-wristed, namby-pamby nancy-boy who doesn’t have a clue what conservatism means, much, much less Christianity, whose principles are determined by sticking a finger up in the wind. The jackwagon doesn’t have a fucking clue about standing up for principle, or for what’s right.
And he doesn’t have the balls to stand up to his faggot son and tell him he’s wrong. And that’s the most shameful thing of all.
The young-skull-full-o’-shit has shamed both his excuses-for-parents, and they don’t have the sense God gave a flea enough to realize it.
And the GOP wonders why they’re losing elections.

“If Mr. Paul wants to be taken seriously, he needs to do more than pull political stunts that fire up impressionable libertarian kids in their college dorms. He needs to know what he’s talking about,” McCain said. “I don’t think what happened yesterday was helpful to the American people.”
—John “Did you know I was a Vietnam POW and a war hero?” McCain
Benedict Arnold was a war hero, too, McRINO. How’d that work out for him?
You, Juanita McLame, are nothing but a needle-dicked coward. A douchebag in Republican clothing. A limp-wristed chickenshit dicklick. A traitor to the United States of America.
The Ayatollah Obambi is selling this country down the river, you son-of-a-crack-whore-bitch, and you & Lindsay Grahamnesty are helping him paddle the damned thing.
Go ahead and join the Demoscum, McPusstard. You and Grahamnesty. Both of you are worthless as Republicans.
F.E.T.E, as the Imperial Torturer is wont to say.

Denizens, you heard it here first. (Or “foist”, to use a bit of Rott terminology.)
Barring a completely unexpected turn of events – the bastard stealing the election in about three weeks? – you have just seen the death knell of the Weepy Boner speakership.
Speaker John A. Boehner’s effort to pass fallback legislation to avert a fiscal crisis in less than two weeks collapsed Thursday night in an embarrassing defeat after conservative Republicans refused to support legislation that would allow taxes to rise on the most affluent households in the country.
House Republican leaders abruptly canceled a vote on the bill after they failed to rally enough votes for passage in an emergency meeting about 8 p.m.
Within minutes, dejected Republicans filed out of the basement meeting room and declared there would be no votes to avert the “fiscal cliff” until after Christmas. With his “Plan B” all but dead, the speaker was left with the choice to find a new Republican way forward or to try to get a broad deficit reduction deal with President Obama that could win passage with Republican and Democratic votes.
Gee, seems that can they’ve been kicking down the road has suddenly developed a solid iron core. Sufficient to make the Sniveler of the House stub his toe a bit, eh what?
Posted by Darth Venomous @ 22:57
Denizens, I’m not sure what to make of the Akin brouhaha.
Yeah, what the guy said was dumb. Incredibly so, in fact. Now, I understand the line of reasoning – you tell me who among us, sans the necessary training, performs well under extreme pressure. (And I don’t give a shit if the study he’s quoting was commissioned by the Nazis – if they proved it, they proved it.)
Nor am I saying the “science”, if you will, is 100% guaranteed to work all the time. 30,000 rape pregnancies per year (at least, that’s the number I remember reading) puts the lie to that.
I do concede that the way he said it was very, very stupid.
But what irritates me is the way that all the conservative high muckety-mucks in our society – from the Mizzou political bigwigs, to Malicious Malkin, to Hannity, to Krauthammer, to – yes, even Limbaugh – are throwing this guy under the bus. Despite the man’s obviously conservative voting record in Congress, he’s now a fucking GOP pariah.
It’s the one advantage the Demoscum have over us. Biden makes a crack about Republicans wanting to put Americans in “chains” (and spoken with a faux Southern accent, at that) – the Dimbulbs come to his aid. Bambi says something stupid (a daily occurrence nowadays), the Donks circle the wagons.
Why don’t we ever go to the mats for our people? Why do we cower in fear when one of ours commits a bon mot?
Pisses me off. We’d throw Christ Himself under the bus if he said something controversial these days.
And if we continue to run away like ball-less, dickless wonders, is it any wonder why we lose elections all the time?

Damn. Did we say “10-point lead”?
Soooooo very sorry.
How about a 12-point thumping???
Tea Party favorite Ted Cruz was headed toward victory Tuesday night, pulling off a stunning coup and besting veteran Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst in a fierce, hard-fought, multi-million dollar Republican quest for Texas’ first open Senate seat in a decade.
In the GOP battle that became “establishment” versus Tea Party, Cruz held 56 percent of the vote to Dewhurst’s 44 percent, with 6.780 of 7,957 precincts reporting.
Now that probably won’t hold up, especially if the Southern Command down there goes ahead and takes their foot off Houston’s throat (grin), but this is damned encouraging to behold.
Memo to Davey Pants Pee-yew-hurst: This is what you get for running like a Demoscum, boy. Don’t come to us calling yourself a conservative when your entire campaign against Cruz came from the leftards’ Short-Bus playbook – right down to that fuckheaded Sandy Fonzo “Ted Cruz should be ashamed of himself, I don’t know how he can sleep at night” bullshit.
Demoscum use those tactics, chump. And you gave a textbook demonstration on why you’re well-known in Texas as a “moderate” (read: libtard). The only good thing about your excuse-for-a-campaign is that, because he endorsed you, I can now go back to calling him “Big Dickhead Perry”.
Now. On to November, and yet another kicking of Donktard ass.

Item: In the Texas GOP race for US Senate, David Dewhurst has been…well…decidedly negative.
(And trust me, Denizens – he’s been doing this all campaign.)
Item: The ancient Chinese proverb has made its way into this race: “He who sling mud lose ground.”
PPP’s final poll of the Republican Senate runoff in Texas finds Ted Cruz opening up a 52-42 lead, an increase from our survey two weeks ago that found him ahead 49-44.
Item: Oh, now Dewhurst decides to start going after Bambi:
G’bye, Davey Pants. Thanks for playing.

I had hoped to be a part of the Texas state GOP convention. Alas, they had already had the local caucuses (caucii?) by the time I went to vote in the primary back at the end of May.
Shows you what I get for missing staff meetings.
Now that I find out about part of what went on, I wonder if I even want to vote in the general.
Texas Republicans are touting their success in bringing the factions of their party together last week in Fort Worth to approve a new plank in the party platform aimed at effective changes in immigration policy.
They call their guest worker program the “Texas solution” and say it offers answers instead of “another litany of problems,” said Brad Bailey, a member of the platform subcommittee that drafted the plan.
The proposal would provide a way for illegal immigrants to have legal status — and possibly more important to the party right now, it could pull into Republican ranks conservative Hispanic voters who could not abide the harsh deportation policies of former Republican state platforms.
Under the new, gentler proposal, “We no longer call it ‘illegal immigration,’” said Norman Adams, a Houston insurance broker who co-founded Texans for Sensible Immigration Policy a decade ago. “For the first time, the Republican Party actually offers a solution. In the past our only solution was for them to leave.”
But it’s much easier now! Now that we’ve caved in, that is.
Just think – the Texas Gaggle Of Pusstards have fallen in lockstep with Der Ayatollaher and as much as told a million illegals (for now – five will get you 10 million it’ll be more) “hell, yeah, c’mon in! We’ll find ya jobs! Those tens of millions of unemployed/underemployed American citizens?!?!?! Screw ‘em”
If this is how the GOP “stands up” to the Donks, what the Hell’s the point?

Rep. Ron Paul of Texas said Monday he will not compete in primaries in any of the states that have not yet voted — essentially confirming Mitt Romney will win the Republican presidential nomination.
Mr. Paul said he will continue to work to win delegates in states that have already voted and where the process of delegate-selection is playing out. He said that’s a way to make his voice heard at the Republican nominating convention in Tampa, Fla., in August.
“Moving forward, however, we will no longer spend resources campaigning in primaries in states that have not yet voted,” Mr. Paul said. “Doing so with any hope of success would take many tens of millions of dollars we simply do not have.”
Translation: “Mene mene tekel upharsin”.
If there is a Cthulhu, this will be the absolute last time we ever see the words “Ron Paul” and “presidential candidate” in the same sentence.
But then we are talking about the definitive blithering idiot, so I wouldn’t hold my breath.

Following Mittens the Romerrhoid’s five-state primary sweep yesterday, Fox News Channel is reporting that aides are saying that Newt Gingrich will be “suspending” his presidential campaign by next Tuesday.
No real surprise – Newt’s campaign has pretty much been one long proclamation-then-reversal (say one thing, then have circumstances force a complete one-eighty days or weeks later) all silly-season long. But it’s one more reminder that conservatives have, once again, had delivered to them a proverbial kick-in-the-crotch by the GOP Establishment.
And then they have the balls to keep demanding that we give them the votes to which they’re supposedly entitled…because…because…because SHUT UP!!!!!
Lemme say this again: This is my vote. Not yours, GOP, mine. It does not belong to Gingrich, nor Santorum, nor Perry (necessarily), nor your beloved Romerrhoid, nor McCain, nor Palin…nor anyone else. It is mine, dammit, do you understand? MINE!!!
As the political party, it is incumbent upon you to convince me why the presidential candidate you place on the ticket is worthy of my vote.
You have not done that. Nor will you, if the candidate is Mitt Romney. Period, end of sentence, end of paragraph, end of topic, end of discussion.
You RINO bastard pusstards don’t like that? You should have thought of that before you tried to shove Mittens the Romerrhoid down my throat.
You’ve made your bed, RINOs, now lie in it.
It ain’t my problem any more.

“Well Governor, let me start by saying it’s great to have a different opinion and a different person on the radio and I’m very, very happy that you’re doing this radio show. One of the reasons why I want to listen to your program every day is because you ran for office and you’ve been a politician, you have a different perspective I think.”
—The first caller to Mike Huckabee’s new radio show Monday, 4/9/12
You just can’t make shit like this up.
In fact, Huckabee…ummm…did.
In fact, “Mike from San Francisco” turned out after some digging to be one Mike McVay, the senior vice president of programming for… wait for it… the Cumulus Media Network. None of which was acknowledged on the air by either “Mike from San Francisco” or, more to the point, Mike Huckabee.
Jeffery Lord goes on to strongly imply (if not state outright) that Huckabee not only was in on it, but may have even had a hand in the staging.
I’ve never done that here. Could very easily, but I don’t roll like that. Any commenter you see here is a real person, really commenting.
True conservatives don’t have to make shit up, y’know.
