Let's Play- Outrage Roulette! Round 5!

What do you think the Right Wing machine will be mad about this week? To be considered an "outrage" the issue must result in
1. Conservative media being mad about something
2. Presidential candidates talk about it
3. Democrats must talk about it, debunk it, or laugh at conservatives for bringing the issue up.
4. The media must go bananas over it.
Once again, write down the topic and the number of Crazy Credits or CC for short you want to assign as a bet.
Last week we had the Hillary Rosen issue, the Catholic League issue, and the Oil drilling issue. What will they be mad about this week?

For example: I bet on Bill Maher making a joke about...Catholics... for 10CC. He's been in the news a lot lately and the Repub outrage machine is all over the place these days. I really didn't expect them to go after Trayvon Martin supporters.

Place your bets!

2. They will keep up with the Rosen thing

because that's all they have that is of any benefit to the GOP.

3. Secret Service scandal

This is a hard one to pin on Obama, but we're dealing with professional outrage fanatics here. Either Obama will give what they consider an innappropriate response or the'll claim the White House inspired such behavior by example of Obama's loose morals.

Someone has to be blamed, and the GOP can't pass up on such an opportunity. Doing so will involve an assumption that the Secret Service is a branch of the Democratic Party however, so it'll take some time to reconfigure the outrage machine.

4. Hillary Clinton's night out at a bar called "Havana".

 

Someone is going to equate her going out for a beer and dancing with the SS scandal. Bet on it. "Not dignified behavior for our SoS."
