Still too soon to talk about guns & ammo?

Filed in National by on July 31, 2012 23 Comments

I know it totally hurts the NRAs feelings to talk about the easy access that maniacs in this country have to guns and ammo. I know the NRA’s flunkies in congress might tear up if someone suggests that allowing maniacs to buy 20 guns a month and thousands of rounds of ammo online isn’t such a good idea. We have to some compassion for the poor victims of gun control talk. I know all of that. It is just so mean and thoughtless to make anyone think about our absurd gun politics.

That’s why I’m worried that this legislation might be a little lacking in empathy for the NRA.

What does the political media get…

Filed in National by on July 31, 2012 5 Comments

for 50 years of bending over backwards to prop up conservative nonsense, shallow “he said/she said” reporting and a devotion to incuriousness posing as objectivity?

Scorned. And they richly deserve it.

These findings from a Daily Kos/SEIU poll are not surprising.

Mitt Romney on his Overseas adventures: “And I realize that there will be some in the Fourth Estate, or whichever estate, who are far more interested in finding something to write about that is unrelated to the economy, to geopolitics, to the threat of war, to the reality of conflict in Afghanistan today, to a […]

Giant Killer?

Filed in National by on July 31, 2012 36 Comments

Sam Waltz of the public relations firm Waltz & Associates starts off his fellation of Charles Lamont du Pont Copeland in the Delaware Today thusly:

When Republicans go to the polls in November and review the ballot, they won’t find the name of the man many GOP leaders figure to be their biggest giant-killer. Charlie Copeland, 49, is sitting this one out. Taking his time. Picking his spot. Taking care of business.

Pardon me a moment….

Romney campaign cussing over gaffe filled eurotrip

Filed in National by on July 31, 2012 3 Comments

A Romney spokesperson cursed at the traveling press corps in Warsaw, Poland on Tuesday when the press tried to ask questions of the presumptive Republican nominee, reports CNN.

Traveling press secretary Rick Gorka told reporters from the NYT and CNN to “shove it” and invited them to kiss his ass.

Here’s part of the transcript, from CNN:

NYT: “Governor Romney do you feel that your gaffes have overshadowed your foreign trip?”

CNN: “Governor Romney just a few questions sir, you haven’t taken but three questions on this trip from the press!

Gorka: “Show some respect”

NYT: “We haven’t had another chance to ask a question…”

Gorka: “Kiss my ass. This is a Holy site for the Polish people. Show some respect.”

I’m sure that this doesn’t move any undecideds, but it does add to the picture of a Romney campaign spinning out of control.
