Topical SAT Question

Al Qaeda is to ISIS

as


The Republican Party is to _________



answer below:





Teaparty

*Note: apparently Al Queada expelled ISIS, Teathugs are embraced by Rethugs. So, nevermind.

Iraq was and is Bush's Mess

http://www.salon.com/2014/06/16/sorry_george_w_bush_but_this_whole_mess_is_still_your_fault/

What kind of addition to the Shrub's Comic Book Library does this current crisis in Iraq justify? I was thinking an exhibition of a permanent tire fire.

A Bush heads into conflict

Not a person of course. An Aircraft Carrier. Rename it the USS Military Industrial Complex. More appropriate.

Sunday Rethug Propaganda Shows

According to the local scandal sheet the Sunday Talking head shows features such notables as: Romney, Cantor, King, Graham, Graham again, Priebus, Cantor again, Rogers, and Price.

I stopped watching these Rethug Gasbag apology shows years ago. This lineup reminds me why.


Wingnut Sessions Says Screw You to Veterans

http://www.msnbc.com/rachel-maddow-show/blank-check-veterans

snip:

“I feel strongly we’ve got to do the right thing for our veterans. But I don’t think we should create a blank check, an unlimited entitlement program, now,” Sessions said.

Like with Romney's 47% remark, sometimes the Rethug Teahaddist veil slips and you get to see the actual face of these sleazes. Sessions' remarks let everybody in on the secret long known to many--that Rethugs see Veterans as entitled and expendable "others" who, upon return from duty, can be discarded like a used kleenex.


Just saw Senator Grahamstand...

saying on the TV box that we have to fight them over there or we will fight them over here. I rocketed out of my chair and checked my calender to make sure it wasn't 2002.

Different year, same FUBAR message.

Recall On Cantor's Smarmylade

The local Rethug Teahaddists have issued a recall on Cantor's Smarmylade. The Smarmylade was found to insufficiently contaminated with the "right" ingredients.

CNN-Cowardly News Network

http://www.salon.com/2014/06/11/why_cnn_is_so_afraid_of_admitting_that_americas_terror_attacks_are_right_wing_partner/
snip:

In the aftermath of the deadly Las Vegas shooting rampage, which left two police officers, a shopper, and the shooters dead, one can expect all the usual talking points that follow an all too regular and familiar massacre – mental health, access to guns, the killer’s motives, and so forth. But here’s another one: the intellectual cowardice of cable news giant CNN, when it comes to reporting right wing terrorism.

But don’t expect CNN to include the prefix “right-wing” to the use of the word extremism or terrorism, for their, and the mainstream media’s, fear of the right-wing hysteria machine is ever present and always palpable. In fact, CNN refused to identify the Tea Party flag. Dan Simon of CNN went so far as to avoid the far right’s wrath that he said the killers “left behind some type of flag with some kind of insignia.” The cable network’s 24/7 ticker feed reads, “Killers had extremist views.”


CNN is Faux News lite.





Bush Pays Cash For Hostages

http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2014/06/10/the-right-didn-t-mind-when-bush-paid-a-ransom-to-terrorists.html

snip:

The Bush administration arranged an indirect payment to Abu Sayyaf of $300,000, as reported a little later by ABC’s John McWethy, the veteran Pentagon correspondent, and even by Fox’s Brent Baier, whose phrasing had it that “the U.S. government facilitated a ransom payment to al Qaeda-linked terrorists.”

Alas...a story not likely to be heard on the Sunday talking head shows.

Faux News Priority Today

At the gym today there was CNN and Faux news side by side on the TVs.

CNN-speeches from Normandy commemorating the beginning of the liberation of Europe.

Faux News--Bergdahlzi full time without interruption.

Of course, because in the Rethug universe these events have equal historical weight.

I kept waiting for a Benghazi interruption.
