While speaking at a fundraiser for NE02 Rep. Lee Terry this morning, Tea Party darling, Rep. Allen West (R-FL) referred to Terry’s Republican opponents as “Knuckleheads”.
We are just reporting the news, peoples.
President Obama went off on Republicans yesterday for not getting on board with his plan to pick which “energy” companies to support — such as Solyndra and other futuristic bankrupt entities. We went on to say that Republicans were like the “Flat Earth” people in Columbus’s time who thought he’d fall off on his way across the Atlantic. And he then knocked former President Rutherford B. Hayes, saying that Hayes said no one would want to won one of these new “telephones”.
Except that Hayes was the first President to have a phone in the oval office and constantly marveled at how awesome it was. (Until he started to get calls from his Alumni association asking him to donate more…)
Oh, and in Columbus’s time, pretty much all educated people knew the Earth was round. The debate back then was about the distance across the Atlantic to India, and whether Columbus would run out of fresh water before he got there.
But Obama is acting just like a true Democrat, yeah? Ignore the facts. And science and history. Just forge ahead, using the strongest emotional argument you can muster, and make up stuff about those who do not agree with you.
Now where have we seen this done in Nebraska? Hmmmmm.
Hey and speaking of the President, a few of his good buddies from Omaha were at the White House for the state dinner with the British PM. That would be Warren Buffett and his daughter Susie, fresh off her victory of pushing through the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender anti-discrimination ordinance in Omaha.
Nothing like the very, very, very, very TIP top of the 1% representing with the President, eh Occupiers?
And then speaking of the Susie Buffett and her new ordinance, Joe Jordan interviewed Councilman Ben Gray at the signing ceremony, about the prospect of putting the issue on next year’s ballot in Omaha. Gray responded that that would be a bad thing, because it would be “too polarizing” for Omaha.
So, just to be clear, Gray presents a divisive issue before the city; rams it through the Council; but then does not want to have a vote on his divisive issue because it is too divisive? That is right up there with yelling to someone, “Do not think about a green hippopotamus!”
Hey, we see that the vandals got ahold of our logo up top, and instead referenced the street Creighton University is located on.
And to that we say, “DAMN STRAIGHT! GOOOOOOOOO JAYS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”
Have fun and be safe tomorrow! Don’t drink too much Green Dye #7!
