More smiting please.
Grover. The liar and grifter, not the Muppet.
Mike Kay (Democrat of the Century)
he’s also a closet case.
Water is wet.
Breaking story at 11.
Tweety vs. Grover yesterday.
EDIT: Or not. MSNBC’s video site sucks.
Mike, you mean a Koch sucker?
If only we lived in a world where facts mattered.

The ultimate “entitlement” is to inherit a fortune.
Why that particular “entitlement” isn’t a concern, but Social Security subsistence is, really does not elude me that much. The former entitlement is for a select few, the latter for the vile masses.

Oh Grover….What are we going to do with you?
Tar, feathers and nice long rest in some hellhole prison would be a nice start.
Yeah, but for the media to notice, it needs to be man bites dog.
OT, a little interesting fallout from the Casey Anthony case:
The prosecution cannot withhold exculpatory evidence. This may have guaranteed a new trial had the jury not come in with a not guilty verdict.
Villago Delenda Est
The prosecution was operating under the assumption that they were covered by the Nancy Grace rules of jurisprudence.
I love this language from the Heritage Foundation flack
So recessions are evil? Does that make Bush the anti-Christ of economics?
Bush the anti-Christ
Man I hate when that happens.
He’s not only a liar, he is a truly evil power muncher. He’s been at this ‘shrink the government until it is small enough to drown in the bathtub’ for years and years. Why does he do it? “Who knows what evil lurks in the hearts of man”.
“Someday”, we may be privileged (like the Shadow) to learn what awful things he has done in pursuit of this James Bond-like classic evil goal.
It’s like Murdock and Nixon. He looks clean because everyone if afraid to probe deeply into what he’s done.
More OT — So the story broke about Michelle Bachmann’s headaches, and her security manhandling ABC’s Brian Ross who tried to ask her about it. I just looked at the Swampland post on it and saw Michelle’s “prepared statement” about her migraines. It contained this:
What does this even mean? If she functions effectively she can’t be commander in chief? If she doesn’t function she can still be CIC? She can be CIC no matter how ineffectively she functions? Huh?
Oh the trembling in the hopeful Cheeto dust hearts of the faithful; to grow up andbe like Grover.
Uncle Clarence Thomas
Grover Norquist is a liar.
Now consider these statements…
+ “Social Security is the cornerstone of the social compact in this country.”
+ “The underlying system is sound. The actual problem is a projected cash shortfall that can be readily solved.”
+ “On issues as fundamental as how to protect Social Security, a candidate for president owes it to the American people to tell us where they stand,” because you’re not ready to lead if you can’t tell us where you’re going.”
+ “I do not believe that we need to cut benefits or raise the retirement age.”
+ “The best option, in my view, is to ask the highest income Americans to contribute a little bit more by raising the ceiling on what is currently paid on the amount of earnings subject to the social security tax.”
+ “We need to stop borrowing millions from the Social Security trust fund” in the federal budget.
No big surprise there. Grover and all his ilk are out and out liars.
The fact that this turd gets pols to sign pledges to his bullshit beliefs pisses me off more than anything.
Mike Kay (Democrat of the Century)
Not only that, this was a capitol case. If she got convicted, then the prosecution would be up on attempted murder charges.
Make sure when you tar him, do it in a bathtub.
I think that’s exactly it. It’s not the job she wants, it’s the title. If she were president, she’d do like St. Ronnie did and appoint a bunch of people to do all her work for her. Then she’d focus on all the stuff a president really does, like posing for photos and inviting all kinds of important people to the White House.
@22 – where’s the like button when you really need it?
Norquist would definitely want to see the pictures. Then he’d swipe them and keep them in a secret hiding place.
OT, but I heard today that Michele Bachmann suffers from crippling migraines. Does this surprise anyone?
As ye sow, so shall ye reap.
RE: The prosecution cannot withhold exculpatory evidence.
Yep. Whatever one feels about the verdict, this stuff on the part of the prosecution, if true, also perverts the cause of justice.
Are you saying she gets migraines because she’s done something to deserve it? That’s kind of unfair to people who suffer from migraines. A lot of nice people have problems with migraines too. Are you saying they did something to deserve them?
More OT but only cause I’m so in love with Bachmann’s effectivenss not being a bar to here being CIC
Why, Yes Minister!
Tweety went up against Rep Joe Walsh (R-Asshat) today. I swear all the new Teabagger reps went to training on how to filibuster in interviews. Video here.
Since its apparent that you don’t like taxes and can’t seem to find any reason that would justify the paying of taxes, please take thee hither to Somalia, where there are no taxes and feel free to spend your money without the interference of any government entity.
The rest of us would like to live in a society where schools are funded, roads are paved, food is checked, the environment is safe and the courts are staffed with ethical folks who understand the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, plus having a few police officers around to take care of the drunks on the weekends.
The rest of the U.S.A.
Dennis SGMM – If I had to live inside her brain, I’d have crippling migraines, too
Of course he lies. you have to lie to be a successful republican. They would have 22%support if they told the truth.
My thought was that she gives people plenty of headaches therefore…
Jesus, Violet, I didn’t know that. My wife gets migraines. I had them through my teens.
Oh yeah. The Politifact truth-o-meter is going to convince EVERYONE.
He is toast.
I’m sorry you had to suffer from migraines, and that your wife does now. They really suck and I have sympathy for those that suffer with them, even if the people who suffer are not very nice or good people.
One of my good friends suffers from migraines. She’s one of the very highest achieving people I know, with multiple advanced degrees, a very challenging job that takes her all over the world, a busy family life and a bunch of hobbies to fill those spare moments. Oh, and pets. She’s a dynamo. But when she gets a migraine and doesn’t start the medication soon enough, she pretty much has to hide in bed until it passes. It really sucks for her.
who is this Joe Walsh person? I find him offensive
Half of our population can barely balance their checkbooks. Disproving trickle down/voodoo economics to the masses after 25 years of shilling by the likes of Grover will take a large economic recession. Oh, I see what you did there…
@Ash Can (23):
Republicans run for head of state. Democrats run for head of government.

I need to go find cases where Hedge Fund guys actually created jobs with their personal income. Wish me luck.
stuckinred : I wish that was what I just heard :p
Migraines are the worst. I largely outgrew them. My dear wife on the other hand, is still afflicted and nothing the doctors have prescribed even touches them.
I know, I saw it a 5. FIDO, the dude is a jackass, stick with the James Gang.

No, I took it to mean something like “Grover Norquist deserves a case of rampant running sores and screaming shits – though, don’t get me wrong, many wonderful people are also afflicted with running sores and screaming shits. It’s just that Grover Norquist DESERVES running sores and screaming shits. There is no justice in this universe.”
Did I read you correctly, Dennis?
She means that while the migraines might affect her ability to function, she can still launch that CIC football when she wants to.
Americans for Tax Reform is a misnomer. It should be called Americans for Tax Rescission.
I keep wondering why members of Congress seem to think that following a man who wants to drown government in a bathtub portends a successful conclusion.
Now remember this is just false.
But saying the Ryan plan ends Medicare…now that’s pants on fire!
Fun BJ Fact: Grover’s daddy was a Polaroid VP. My grandmother used to clean his office.
Warren (unlike Dr. Land, who was good to his staff) was apparently an asshole. Google “Grover Norquist ice cream cone” for an example.
Grover himself (like so many of these sociopaths) has never had a non-political job.
The migraines are easily explained.. it’s probably her gaydar going off every time her husband comes around and she can’t accept what her gaydar is telling her.
Also, once she becomes president, she will embrace and put Koch on her tongue.
@4. M. Bouffant:
Here’s the correct link to Chris Matthews’ interview with Grover Norquist.
