Betty C. has already noted Sharron Angle might do a number of things besides run for President of the United States. However, no one could have possibly foreseen what Obtuse would get up to on Friday, 21 Jan. [via J.M.G.]:
Sharron will be sharing her beauty and makeup challenges during the campaign and how she overcame them!
She had confidence that she would look great with 14 -16 hour days & with numerous appearances daily…so can you!
Well, I got nothing, but figured we needed to run something up the flag pole, so here’s the latest vlog from professional blogger/Pat Benetar impersonator/radiopodcast host Taylor Marsh. Enjoy the boogie oogie oogies, you snarky bastards!
p.s. Sure, what the hell, open thread this like a mofo. Let us know if you blogroll the ‘Roast and would like the favor returned.
I was scanning Snooki’s Facebook page to sample the Sarahverse’s reactions to the Egypt crisis when I came across this intriguing post:
I hadn’t heard of McOwskey before, but his Facebook link led me to a campaign home page, where I discovered that he ran in last year’s hotly-contested race for “Governors of New Jerseys” and is currently a candidate “for every open election in the United States.”
I hope Sarah gets the message. God knows she could use some new best friends and a fresh, engaging, only-modestly-freakish protégé to wick off the stink of Miller, Angle and O’Donnell. And just imagine what fun Eddie could be as an approximate-spelling-accepted write-in challenger to Lisa Murkowski in 2016!
Jobs, schmobs, American public. The Republicans have a much more important agenda and now that they’ve (in their minds) repealed health care reform it’s time to move to the next highest priority on their list. Redefining rape for purposes of federal abortion funding !
And, no, they’re not making it more liberal. No, INDEEDY! Citing the high priority of this issue, the Rethugs have introduced the “No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act” with 173 sponsors. Mainly, duh, Republicans.
But we already have laws preventing federal funds from being used for abortions, you say. With exceptions for rape, incest and health of the mother, of course. Silly reader! We have laws preventing federal funds from being used for abortions with exceptions for rape, incest and health of the mother but U R DEFINING RAPE AND INCEST RONG!!!
Contrary to what you thought you believed dear readers, rape is not rape unless it’s forcible rape! And incest is not incest unless u r under 18! All others need not apply. Note especially that statutory rape is not really, truly rape (unless, of course, it’s your uncle doing you). Neither, for that matter is date rape, rape of a drunk or drugged person or, best of all, rape of women with “limited mental capacity”. He didn’t rough you up and break your nose? Sorry, sister slut! Carry that baby to term.
The proposed law has other odious provisions such as not allowing for non-sanctioned abortions-due-to-rape to be paid for from HSA’s! Or deducted on your tax return! Yay! We’re well on our way back to the days of keepin’ em barefoot and pregnant with this here Republican Congress, thanks to, well, you know who y’are.
Tea Party favorite Sharron Angle of Nevada …wouldn’t say that she was running for president…but she wouldn’t say that she wasn’t.
It’s a good thing the media are following Angle’s every move. Don’t let her recent failure to dislodge an incumbent who is less loved in Nevada than genital herpes lull you into thinking Angle is no longer relevant politically.
Here are the top three other things Sharron Angle hasn’t ruled out:
1) Teaming up with Joe Miller on a nationwide tour of “Tea Party Losers on Ice:”
2) Employing “Second Amendment remedies” to deal with a spider infestation in her condo:
3) Traveling to Mexico City to kick off “Asian Heritage Appreciation Week:”
These possibilities are even more likely than Angle pursuing a presidential bid. I hope the media keep us informed of any developments.
Representative Paul Ryan, who fears that “we will transform our social safety net into a hammock, which lulls able-bodied people into lives of complacency and dependency,” suffered the tragic loss of his father when young Ryan was 16 years old. The presumably able-bodied Ryan used his father’s Social Security benefits to attend college.
Ryan’s literary hero, Atlas Shrugged author Ayn Rand, wrote interminable diatribes against the evils of collectivism and statism while collecting Social Security checks.
