Rein In the IRS Rally Tuesday in Portland

irs-protestThanks to a twitter follower, I found out about a nationwide effort to rally folks to rally in front of the IRS Tuesday. Because nobody else was organizing anything in concert with this effort and since I’ve wanted to do SOMEthing in response to this IRS abuse, I thought I’d go ahead and organize it. 

Your time is important so this will be short and, I hope, impactful. Please come at 12:15-12:45 and bring your sign and a smile. 

Please go to the Facebook page to RSVP: https://www.facebook.com/events/114824638688026/

Hello, ABC Standards and Practices? Did You Watch the Billboard Music Awards Last Night?

Nicki Minaj gives Lil’ Wayne a lap dance with gasp inducing hand gestures on ABC Television Sunday night.

Who knew when they paid the money to get into the Billboard MusicAwards at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas last night that they’d get a lap dance as a spiff? I actually gasped after rapper Nicki Minaj gave rapper Lil Wayne a lap dance on stage as the final, er, act of the Billboard Music Awards. 

I’m not a prude and I actually got to like Minaj through her short lived “reality” show. But this? This was absolutely disgusting–most especially when she put her hand through her legs and started making gestures that simulated–I’m at a loss for words. Maybe she was just doing her version of jazz hands.

ABC, are you listening? 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Scott St. Clair: With Friends Like Dan Pfeiffer, Obama Doesn’t Need Enemies

Senior White House Adviser, Dan Pfeiffer, channeling Ron Ziegler and telling Schieffer that there is no there there. In fact, he doubled down and said, "the Republican playbook here which is try, when they don't have a positive agenda, try to drag Washington into a swamp of partisan fishing expeditions, trumped up hearings and false allegations."

In fact, he doubled down and said, “the Republican playbook here which is try, when they don’t have a positive agenda, try to drag Washington into a swamp of partisan fishing expeditions, trumped up hearings and false allegations.”

Why does the Obama administration continue to send out on the Sunday shows second-tier spinmeisters and those so far removed from the action that they can’t comment from their own personal knowledge? Policy makers and those whose hands are on the levers of power never seem to be available, so we get the same-old-same-old canned spin from unctuous prigs like boy-man Dan Pfeiffer (pictured right), who was verbally dissected and made to eat his own words by CBS’ Bob Schieffer on yesterday’s “Face the Nation.” Ever respectful, but still insulting, Schieffer schooled Pfeiffer on how he was reading from a script written during the Nixon era:

“You know, I don’t want to compare this in any way to Watergate. I do not think this is Watergate by any stretch. But you weren’t born then I would guess, but I have to tell you that is exactly the approach that the Nixon administration took. They said, ‘These are all second-rate things. We don’t have time for this. We have to devote our time to the people’s business.’ You’re taking exactly the same line they did.”

Schieffer called B.S. on the White House sending ignorant-of-the-facts UN Ambassador Susan Rice on the Sunday shows after Benghazi to spin a yarn those who sent her KNEW was a lie:

“But what I’m saying to you is that was just PR. That was just a PR plan to send out somebody who didn’t know anything about what had happened. Why did you do that? Why didn’t the Secretary of State come and tell us what they knew and if he knew nothing say, ‘We don’t know yet?’ Why didn’t the White House Chief of Staff come out? I mean I would, and I mean this as no disrespect to you, why are you here today? Why isn’t the White House Chief of Staff here to tell us what happened?”

 Here’s the entire segment:


The compendium of Obama miscues may not yet be at a Watergate-level, but if the administration continues to be represented by liars and morons whose words insult the intelligence of the American people, it could easily end up there. And that will be something Obama built.
