I found this story funny, though the subject is far from it.
Apparently the RNC has awarded a number of vulnerable Dems a special award for their participation in the American catastrophe known as Obamacare.
" Rebecca Coffman, a press assistant at the RNC .. holding the trophy outside Senator Mary Landrieu's office before presenting it to one of her staffers. "We'd like to present Senator Landrieu with the Lie of the Year award on behalf of the Republican National Committee," she said.At least he took it. No sore losers there, right?
Gary Peters, who will probably lose to whomever runs for US Senate in 2014 received the award above for his part in bringing forward the end to the US constitution.

He picked the wrong side of the argument once again.
Saul Anuzis former RNC committeeman still has it in for the man who replaced him, OR he really does like promotion of homosexuality, and that which it carries in its side car. Either way, he has made his bed with Dennis Lennox, and other young progressives in the party who wish to pander to the baser instincts of the forbidden fruits.
But ignoring the results of such pandering and adjustment of social conscience to the legal protections we afford our youth is some bad Juju. Just ask prosecutors in Florida:
"The case involves Kaitlyn Ashley Hunt, an 18-year-old in Sebastian, Florida, who was arrested in February after admitting that she had a lesbian affair with a 14-year high-school freshman. .. It is a felony in Florida to have sex with 14-year-olds. Hunt was expelled from Sebastian High School -- where she and the younger girl had sex in a restroom stall -- and charged with two counts of "felony lewd and lascivious battery on a child." The charges could put Hunt in prison for up to 15 years. ..Rules, right?
Rules mean NOTHING when reason is toppled. In the above case, we see the natural progress of 'political correctness.'
And Saul's effort to vilify his esteemed replacement relies on just that method. By contextually abusing comments of Ronald Reagan, and confusing actual bigotry with a conscious disassociation to unhealthy lifestyles, he is solidifying his support for unhealthy, and nontraditional physical relationships.

The ongoing bleat from the lunatic of many convictions, presented without further delay, the entrenched homophile Twitiot.
Former #Michigan Gov. William Milliken joins Gov. @OneToughNerd in condemning #RNC's Dave Agema record-eagle.com/opinion/x12212... #MIGOP #GOP #MIGov
Some reminders of history, lest they be repeated, obviously need reflection:
1969-1982: William G. Milliken. Thirteen years in Office. Environmental extremist. Chummy chum chum's with perhaps the most corrupt Mayor of Detroit ever. But, it was smart of 'ol milquetoast Willy, that was his voting base. Kerry backer... Granholm backer... Obama backer... As Paul Ryan would say about Newt Gingrich, "With friends like him..." How this twaddling old tool still keeps calling himself a Republican is beyond disgusting.
Now, wayward, petty, and pedantic child, you carry on with that polarizing the MI-GOP into obsolescence.
I stand with Dave.
The RNC is going to take advantage of the short window where media is actually questioning 'Dear Leader.'
Starting today, the Republican National Committee (RNC) is launching robocalls and targeted Facebook posts urging Americans to call their representatives and ask why they supported President Obama's lie that people could keep their healthcare plans under ObamaCare.
The RNC is targeting eleven Democrats who support ObamaCare, including nine U.S. Senators who voted in 2010 to make it more difficult for Americans to keep their insurance. The effort includes Senators Mark Warner (VA), Mark Begich (AK), Dick Durbin (IL), Kay Hagan (NC), Mary Landrieu (LA), Jeff Merkley (OR), Mark Pryor (AR), Jeanne Shaheen (NH), and Mark Udall (CO), as well as Representatives Bruce Braley (IA) and Gary Peters (MI).
Peters' targeted call script?:
"I'm calling from the RNC. President Obama and the Democrats said you could keep your healthcare plan under ObamaCare. Now we know REPRESENTATIVE PETERS actually made that same promise. Call REPRESENTATIVE PETERS at (313) 964-9960 and ask why he lied. This call was paid for by the RNC (866) 279-8125.Its a good point.
Call those who voted for it in the first place and ask why THEY lied as well as the boss liar. Make them explain how they could not have known, unless of course they were not reading the bill, in which case they should resign right away as inept negligent, and incapable of service as a US representative or senator..
RNC Chairman Reince Priebus says
"We now know the President's repeated promise that Americans could keep their insurance plans if they liked them was a blatant lie. In 2010 President Obama and the Democrats were warned about this very issue and deliberately chose to make it more difficult for Americans to keep their insurance. Americans should call their representatives and ask why they supported the ObamaCare lie."Indeed.
Though not a fan of Robocalls personally, I agree that the RNC needs to capitalize on the southward jet-stream momentum of the liar in chief.
At least until the Gods of the Copybook Headings blow the winds of change back in his direction.

At least someone else is saying it.
The Republican Party has made it clear in their platform that raising taxes to solve budget woes should be much harder.
One might think that would be the common sense shared by our state leadership, and given the fickle nature of Michigan, an absolute winner for protecting our future generations from abuses like those suffered 2002-2010. Its a known conservative-Republican postulate. Harder to raise taxes = better government.
But Republican platforms, principles, goals, don't seem to be in line with one prominent politician. Michigan Governor Rick Snyder, answering a series of questions on the ballot proposals uses the canard that the MBT would not have been eliminated if prop 5 was already in place:
"Snyder: This isn't just about tax increases. On the face of it, some people may think this is a good thing. But this really would impact many fashions of tax reform or actually tax reductions, because it talks about any increase in rate or base. To use one illustration, we would still have the Michigan Business Tax today, which I don't think anyone would want. That was a disaster. That didn't pass by a two-thirds margin, and this requirement would have applied because we replaced it with a 6 percent net income tax for corporations that was simpler, fairer and more efficient. "Excuses.
Of course, forgetting to say that with a prop 5 type of rule in effect, the MBT would NOT have been enacted in the first place. Granholm's hands would have been tied. She would have had to face the tough cuts that this state needs in its social program structure and government accountability for expenditures.
In fact, some might even look so far back as to when the Michigan imposition of a state income tax of 2 percent on individuals, 3 1/2 percent on corporations, and 6 percent on financial institutions was enacted.
Yeah, I went there.

No, I'm not going to say to Jen, "This one's for you".
CS's response addressed that argument well enough. If that won't suffice, I have about 10+ Gigs of video on my backups at the ready.
Instead, I'm following up on an interesting post that Jason put up a little more than one week ago.
This is about party kakistocracy.
The republican party obviously has it.
So do democrats, as clearly illustrated by Ben Swann's recent piece below:
When debating the DNC party platform change to mention Israel's capitol of <strike>Tel Aviv</strike> Jerusalem, the following event transpired.
No, not Debbie Wazzersname-Schultz recent big honking whopper of a lie.
This is far better.
I'm going to hate to see how the debates will fare if stuff like this isn't even a blurb on the MSM radar.
Christine, I know you read what posted here. Feel free to cross-post this on your site...if you dare.
Presented w/o any further comment.

The Republican party may be toast no matter the outcome of November's election.
The antics by rules committee folks to hold power in the hands of a certain few are designed to keep a succession scheme working. In Michigan, it was the DELEGATE scandal. In Tampa it was what we see in the following video.
There is an imperative to remove Obama. Voting for Mittens and Ryan will be the only way this happens for now. Mitt might well be a great president, and Ryan hold even greater promise to many. However, the power struggle within the party makes a great case for those who would think about crossing over and casting their not-Obama vote. It was stated clearly in a single tweet:
"If this is how Republicans treat their own, what might we expect for independents and Democrats"
That video taped teleprompter was a Breitbart moment. It was the truth for all to see. And it shows an utter disregard for the grassroots and their efforts to bring this country back into some semblance of what it once was. The thought that Republican leadership would do the right thing now a faded idealistic notion.
Conservatives apparently no longer have a welcoming home. And that fact might well spell the end of the GOP after 2012.
