Butters for Veep

Over at The Hill‘s Congress Blog, Denny Freidenrich is pushing Lindsey “Butters” Graham for Mitt’s Veep.

Um, Denny, you need to Google “Lindsey Graham, gay.”  Then you need to take down your post because everybody is laughing at you.

Even John McCain, who loves him some Lindsey, knew he couldn’t consider him for Veep.

I Have a New Enemy!

One of the dumbest things I have read or heard in a long time (and bear in mind that I watch Sarah Palin appearances on Fox) is “‘War on Women’ Narrative is Risky Business,” by Sabrina L. Schaeffer (aka my new enemy) at The Hill’s Pundit Blogs.  Here’s a sample:

“And what about the White House’s attempt to intervene in food policy, where it recently took it upon itself to judge home-packed lunches, giving women even less control over how they choose to feed their families?”

Yeah, how about those lunches?  Because if we lose our birth control and abortion rights, think of all the school lunches we are going to have to pack each morning.

Schaeffer is listed on Pundit Blogs as the Executive Director of the Independent Women’s Forum.  So I Googled that and found “The Independent Women’s Forum is on a mission [from God?] to expand the conservative coalition….”  Emphasis added.  Um, then shouldn’t they be the Conservative Women’s Forum?

As for Schaeffer herself, her background is all GOP — worked for Gov. George Voinovitch (R-Ohio), the Republican Jewish Coalition, the American Enterprise Institute.  Nothing “independent” about her.

The Truth about the GOP

Brent Budowsky, over at The Hill‘s Pundits Blog, tells it like it is:

“Let’s be clear.  Boehner, McConnell, Cantor and Romney are not conviction politicians.  The are power politicians with deep insider financial backing, and deep crony-capitalist relations with Wall Street and K Street.  The people who run the party want the hostile takeover by Romney of the conservative movement to be done, over and complete.

“The Republicans…nominate the most insider candidates who do the best job of pretending to be conservative, just enough to humor and fend off the real conservatives.

“In the GOP, the insider, banking, Wall Street and K Street establishment is the boss.  Period.

“This process of an insincere Romney pretending he is farther to the right than he is, to humor the right that he will ultimately betray, has given Obama a huge advantage.

“To the political center, Romney looks too far to the right; to the political right, he looks too insincere; and to everyone else, he’s simply too elitist.”
