Sarah Palin posted on her Facebook page (hey, she lost her Fox gig, so this is her platform now) that “We’re going to default eventually and that’s why the feds are stockpiling bullets in case of civil unrest.”
The Senate Intelligence Committee will vote on John Brennan’s nomination for CIA Director on Thursday. We’ll see how many senators get pissy about wanting to see the drone memos and how many are successfully distracted by the bright shiny object of Benghazi emails.
In the first election to national office since Newtown, Robin Kelly has defeated Debbie Halvorson in the Dem primary for Jessie Jackson, Jr.’s House seat. Winning the Dem primary in Chicago means you will win the general, so Kelly is going to Congress.
Kelly had been graded “F” by the NRA, while Debbie Halvorson had an “A” rating.
Mike Bloomberg’s super PAC Independence USA ran over $2 million in ads supporting Kelly, and gun control was really the only issue in the race.
The Alaska House just passed a bill, 31-5, that says Alaskans’ guns and ammunition are not subject to federal gun laws.
Wait, it gets better. The law also says that federal agents are subject to felonycharges if they try to enforce any future federal laws banning semi-automatic weapons or large ammo clips or requiring gun registration.
Sarah Palin is not an anomaly, there are plenty more where she came from.
Republican strategist Steve Schmidt just called the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) the “Star Wars bar scene of the conservative movement.” What a perfect image!
He made the comment in reference to CPAC’s not inviting NJ Gov. Chris Christie to speak this year. Schmidt called Christie “the most effective conservative governor in the country” and “somebody that could potentially change the electoral map.”
Schmidt went on to say: “But I want to set the record straight on something, CPAC is not the Republican Party.”
Well, Steve, CPAC may not be the party, but it certainly has the GOP by the balls.
