I recently received an odd, frantic email from some wannabe politico in search of a conservative blogger who would write a column about Obamacare and jobs to save Tom Corbett’s re-election campaign from itself. As if such a Column to End All Columns could be written.

I don’t want to be too hard on this fellow, as I too sometimes suffer from wannabe-ism. Far less so than in the past, as I become more jaded and more likely to just give up and flee the state. I have little hope for an electorate that thought “binders full of women” was a substantive and revealing gotcha against Romney. I’m still not even exactly sure what that binders thing was all about.

Coulter:Vote for Our “Crappy-Ass” Republicans Because The Future of the Country Depends on It;

Romney(‘s advisor):The Plan would repeal many of the ACA’s cost-increasing insurance mandates (fix obamacare with Romney-care V),

Veeshir:The GOP establishment likes over-arching gov’t control of everything just fine, they like the control too.

 

We need to vote GOP because of that (R) after their name. Just because they’re into over-arching gov’t control of every aspect of our lives and are happy with $trillion+ deficits every year (much like the Dems), they have that all-important (R).

We’re so boned it’s not even funny.

Well, it is kind of funny, but mostly endy.

Striking a bold move, Michigan Congressman Kerry Bentivolio returned his Chamber of Commerce award.

Daily Caller:
“If you notice, they call it the Spirit of Enterprise award, not the Spirit of Free Enterprise Award,” [Bentivolio's chief of staff Rob] Wasinger told The Daily Caller via email. “Crony capitalism is alive and well at the Chamber of Commerce.”

Naturally, the Chamber now supports his opponent.

Just in case you were confused about who the good guy is here, Bentivolio has quite a respectable conservative report card with an ACU score of 88, a Club for Growth score of 88, and a Heritage Action score of 83.

As previously discussed, the Chamber is also attempting to primary Justin Amash, who sports even more impressive credentials with an ACU score of 89.22, a Club for Growth score of 99, and a Heritage Action score  of 89.  The Club for Growth has explicitly endorsed Amash in the primary.

Roll Call: “U.S. Chamber Backs Justin Amash Primary Opponent

I now have exactly zero patience for the establishment types who complain about folks putting up primary opposition against incumbents.

Screw the Chamber.

IRS Scandal Day 434.

The Justice Department is Investigating The Lost Emails!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I foresee a Tom Sawyer investigation, whitewash all the way.

They’re just throwing fish to get the media to blow their squeezebulbs like some trained seals so they can tell the unwashed masses that SOMETHING IS BEING DONE!!!1!!!!!!!!!!!1!!

There will be no legal repercussions, not a person at the IRS will ever be prosecuted.

Holder isn’t going to do it, Congress won’t do it and the media is totally uninterested in it except to occasionally whitewash it.

Even if the GOP totally takes over the Gov’t in 2016, they will not do shit.

 

We’re living in a nannarchical bureaucratic state where our rulers are absolutely unaccountable to the ruled.

Remember the huge brouhaha over not allowing the TSA to unionize? The one the anti-union forces ‘won’?

Well they are now unionized and the GOP in Congress did exactly jack and shit about it.

Shut up and give us your money prole.

Embattled PA Governor Tom Corbett signed the annual budget bill several days late, line-item vetoing some appropriations for the Legislature, instructing them to fix the state employee pension system. He did so in style.

You're number one!

You’re number one!

It pains me greatly that Corbett will probably lose re-election. And while he can certainly be blamed in part for poor relationships with the legislative leaders, the cold hard fact is that the Legislature deserves an unambiguous middle finger.

They have not passed pension reform.
They have not passed liquor privatization, or even “modernization”, the near-beer version of de-Sovietizing our idiotic laws regarding the sale of alcohol.

This is, by the way, and ostensibly Republican-controlled Legislature.

Heaven forbid they enact Paycheck Protection, one of the only things that could blunt the institutional power of the commie labor unions that really control this state.

I know the legislators are pissed. I know they can’t wait until Tom Wolf is Governor so they can raise taxes and spend until the cows come home, and go on pretending that nothing is wrong.

Word of warning to the NRCC – watch for collateral damage. Case study: Melissa Hart.

What the Shit?

There’s a lot that’s predictable in a “What the Shit?” way and there’s a lot that’s that weird in the “What the Shit?” sort of way.

We’ve seen this State Dept “Advisor”  dude before telling the Copts to stop bleeding all over Egypt, here he is happy he doesn’t have to defend the Muslim Brotherhood anymore. Cuz now everybody realizes they’re great and shit.

What the Shit?

As Israel is bombing the shit out of Hamas,  you all what what Obama is going to say even as you say, “What the shit?” when he tells both sides to step back. You know, back to when Israel just let Hamas shoot rockets into Israel almost every single day some years but pretty constantly no matter what.

Israel is looking at the same thing our enemies are looking at and realizing they’re on their own and Obama is a weak, feckless tool who just wishes the world would leave him alone to eat his waffles.

 

Ukraine is done with being nice.

New battles raged in Ukraine’s east on July 1 as President Petro Poroshenko announced the end of a shaky 11-day ceasefire and said a new “active phase” of the government’s “anti-terrorist operation” would restart to quash pro-Russian separatists.

What the shit? Don’t you know you’re on your own? The President Feckless and the even more feckless EUnuchs aren’t going to help you. Unless the Germans are feeling like killing someone.

What the shit? I’m rooting for warlike Germans?!?!?!?!??

I don’t feel like looking to see what China’s doing today in the South China Sea, just assume they’re acting like murderous, commie dictators. Expansionist, murderous, commie dictators.

In more oligarchs trying to strengthen their hold news, let’s go the America!

Haley Barbour’s peeps were behind a bunch of the stuff calling tea partiers racist in Mississippi.

No word on those fliers, but it’s bound to come out. I wonder, when it’s discovered that a Republican did them, will whoever tells Cochran what to say tell him to step down?

Sorry, I should have put a drink warning in there or at least a “What the shit?” warning.

We’re just finding out there was some good old fashioned politicking going on there too.

A black reverend stiffed by the Cochran campaign has exposed an alleged criminal conspiracy by Cochran staffers to commit massive voter fraud …

says he delivered “hundreds or even thousands,” of blacks to the polls … “They [the Cochran campaign] told me to offer blacks fifteen dollars each and to vote for Thad.”

 

What the shit? The GOP is paying Democrats to vote for their guy? All they do is call me names and ask me for money.

The GOP establishment pricks there are also making it so McDaniel’s peeps cannot look at the votes to see who voted in both primaries so they’re having to sue to get access.

The lawsuit asks the court to grant immediate access to voting records to inspect for possible illegal voting. It asserts that “defendants failed to properly abide by federal election record maintenance and open records provisions codified in the National Voter Registration Act of 1993 (NVRA). Records made partially available to the plaintiffs indicated ‘double-voting’ from Democratic to Republican primaries – potentially diluting votes in violation of the Equal Protection Clause.”

 

What the shit? Is everybody going all Chicago-Machine politics on us or was always this prevalent but I just didn’t notice?  How come nobody told me? I mean, I knew it was in the big, Dem-Machine cities where I’ve lived, but I didn’t think it was everywhere.

Speaking of Chicago-Machine politics and people getting upset, this is a serious What the Shit? deal,

A bunch of people blocked buses of illegals on their way to being “processed” and released.

More than 100 people waving American flags and holding signs that opposed “new illegals” waited in the hot sun for the three charter buses to arrive at the U.S. Customs and Border Protection station in Murrieta, about an hour north of San Diego.

 

Stuff is really pissing people off.Telling America they suck as you break all the laws is pissing off Teh Peepul as they haven’t been pissed off before. in a long time. (that’s what I mean to say)

 

So CERN found the GOD-PARTICLE!!!!!!! (Higgs Boson) and now they’re all upset because nobody cares enough to give them money.

Because after finding it in July 2012 — and confirming it six months later, after almost 50 years of searching — what else is left? The anti-climax was inevitable.

Sure enough, the world is far less interested in this project, and much less money is being invested in it.

 

What the shit? You called it the God Particle and told us it was going to CHANGE EVERYTHING!!!!!!! and it’s changed….. dialogue on the Big Bang Theory.

You oversold and now you’re paying the price. Eh, should have gone into global warmmongering.

 

A few years ago I was sorta following a story in the NY Post about a CANNIBAL!!!!!, he was convicted and I noted,

Okay, now I feel kind of stupid, apparently the “Cannibal” of the NY Post didn’t actually eat anybody, he just read websites about it and talked about it. I’m not defending any of that, but he didn’t actually do anything but talk shit on the intertubes.

And now we see

. Well, a judge has decided he was just kidding. So he overturned his conviction.

What the shit? You really convicted a dude for playing stuff on the intertubes? That article is kind of OUTraged that the guy was let off, but he didn’t do anything. Jebus.

 

A couple chucklers,

News From The 1980s!

Transformers 4, A Chinese Menu Of Product Placement

 

I don’t know, that just made me laugh. I mean, What the shit?  Are you upset it’s no longer Japanese stuff or are you surprised/OUTRAGED!!!! that Transformers went all commercial?

 

In Italy they’re going all CSI on Ernest and Julio.

It’s a genetic test, but no body parts or blood are being analyzed — it’s bottles of wine instead.

That’s not really a What the shit?, they have their priorities straight.

 

I didn’t realize I had that many links open. What the shit? that was a long post.
