Ghost writing is nothing new for Farah, who ghosted Rush Limbaugh’s last “book,” the delightfully mature entitled “See! I Told You So.” But that was just a theory, of course. I mean, WHO has underpaid amanuenses write their syndicated columns FOR them, after all? Ridiculous! Continue reading
The haters of the Right LOVE to call people RINOs — generally meaning anyone not so obstructionist, inflexible and mean — but I am talking about TRUE RINOS: Republicans In Name Only. These are Libertarians. They have a separate agenda. A separate constituency, and a separate funding mechanism (spelled “K.O.C.H.”) Continue reading
Can we stop NOT laughing at the spectacle of imbeciles, whores and unemployable hacks touting the false and ridiculous party line that global warming is a myth because it’s not warm? Can we stop NOT sneering at the uninformed, specious and intellectually incurious or bankrupt affecting an air of intellectual superiority even as they prove — forensically and beyond a reasonable doubt — that they are PRECISELY the opposite?
Making up fake narratives to whip up their cannon fodder, the Republicans openly plot to take over the country by violence and intimidation. Continue reading
On Tuesday, Bruce Springsteen released “High Hopes,” his 18th studio album. Springsteen also took to the stage on “Late Night” with Jimmy Fallon on Tuesday to mock New Jersey Governor Chris Christie in the wake of Christie’s BridgeGate Scandal: Christie’s intial explanation, “that it was a move to punish a Democratic mayor who had refused to endorse Christie’s reelection bid,” is being met with a lot of skepticism as “two special legislative committees” begin investigations into the scandal on Thursday. The panels will have subpoena power, which means that in the coming weeks and months, a parade of former and current Christie administration officials — as well as many of the governor’s closest political associates — will be called to testify. … Continue reading
Governor Christie is getting hit on all sides, including Barry Blitt’s hard hitting political cartoon on the cover of the new issue of the New Yorker: “I’m hoping this cartoon diverts a lot of traffic to my Web site,” Barry Blitt says about “Playing in Traffic,” the image of New Jersey Governor Chris Christie that he penned for next week’s cover. Read the latest from the NY Times on the Christie scandal: Bridge Scandal Documents Indicate Effort to Hide Political Motive: Officials loyal to Gov. Chris Christie of New Jersey went to elaborate means to make it appear that the September closing of lanes leading to the George Washington Bridge in Fort Lee, N.J., was part of a traffic study, even though … Continue reading
Note the last line in the quote below and understand why the Christie BridgeGate scandal will not go away… Someone died… Emergency responders were delayed in attending to four medical situations – including one in which a 91-year-old woman lay unconscious – due to traffic gridlock caused by unannounced closures of access lanes to the George Washington Bridge, according to the head of the borough’s EMS department. The woman later died, borough records show. More here. I don’t buy for a second that Christie “knew nothing about this.” Into the political abyss for Christie.
Talk about your dirty, old school politics… This is ugly, just plain ugly: New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie denied knowing about a scheme orchestrated by his administration to bully a local political rival, calling the reported actions of a top aide “unacceptable.” He vowed to hold members of his administration accountable. Christie said he was previously unaware of apparent actions taken by his deputy chief of staff to orchestrate the controversial closure of local access lanes to the congested George Washington Bridge in Fort Lee, N.J., in the midst of a re-election campaign. The action prompted massive traffic gridlock in the city on its first day of school. Christie is claiming to have no prior knowledge of the scheme, thus … Continue reading
