When Gullible Voters Get Taken, We ALL Suffer

And it ain't right.  After all, if somebody else falls for the old Nigerian Prince scam, YOUR bank account doesn't get drained.  YOUR computer doesn't get infected and disabled every time somebody else clicks on a suspicious link.

Matt Taibbi's Rhetorical Question about the Tea Party

Here's the entire quote from the Meme GOP post:

“So how does a group of billionaire businessmen and corporations get a bunch of broke Middle American white people to lobby for lower taxes for the rich and deregulation of Wall Street? That turns out to be easy. Beneath the surface, the Tea Party is little more than a weird and disorderly mob, a federation of distinct and often competing strains of conservatism that have been unable to coalesce around a leader of their own choosing. Its rallies include not only hardcore libertarians left over from the original Ron Paul "Tea Parties," but gun-rights advocates, fundamentalist Christians, pseudo-militia types like the Oath Keepers (a group of law- enforcement and military professionals who have vowed to disobey "unconstitutional" orders) and mainstream Republicans who have simply lost faith in their party. It's a mistake to cast the Tea Party as anything like a unified, cohesive movement — which makes them easy prey for the very people they should be aiming their pitchforks at. A loose definition of the Tea Party might be millions of pissed-off white people sent chasing after Mexicans on Medicaid by the handful of banks and investment firms who advertise on Fox and CNBC.” 

And check out the Rolling Stone article from which these quotes were taken:   The Truth About the Tea Party by Matt Taibbi.

You won't be surprised, but you'll be more furious and disgusted than ever.

Carly Fiorina Doubles Down on Edited Planned Parenthood Video

Most people, after they've been punked by a Candid Camera prank, would get all embarrassed, and quietly step back and wait for the public laughter and ridicule to fade away.  Or there's the Carly Fiorina school of “When you find yourself in a hole, keep digging.  Dig harder!  Faster!  Deeper!”

After her nonstop ranting and spouting over that Planned Parenthood “sting” video that turned out to be a fake, Carly Fiorina is madder than ever.  She's going to get to the bottom of this!

“I saw a pink elephant, God Damn it!  I know it was there!”  “I saw the magician pull a rabbit out of his hat.  Now, where's the rabbit?!?  We need to investigate!”

“They told me there was a left-handed monkey wrench under the sky hook, and I can't find it!  Where did they hide that left-handed monkey wrench?!?  And what the fuck is a sky hook?!?   ANSWER  ME!!!”
