Tweeting the DNC + One OMG! Story

I just wish that RED EYE hadn’t been preempted this week:

BECAUSE “RED EYE” IS BETTER THAN “THE DAILY SHOW”!

(which can’t even include a video in its Tweets!)

OH, AND HERE IS ONE “OMG” STORY!

The Atlantic, a once-fine magazine by a once-distinguished James Fallows who writes, “Paul Ryan, Mountaineer” — featured at Memeorandum with Huffington Post, Gawker, CNN, etc. weighing in:

Ryan has told his hometown paper that he has climbed” close to 40″ of the famous “Fourteeners” in Colorado, 54 peaks more than 14,000 feet high. [H]e made this claim a few years ago, before he knew he would be under the scrutiny he is now. [...]

[A Fallows reader tells him] To have climbed forty and not be a resident means that you would have had to devote entire summers to climbing fourteeners, in essence becoming a “lifestyle” hiker/scrambler. …

Enough already! Obsessing about Paul Ryan’s mountain-climbing stories, are we?

    Earth Wind and Fire will not perform at Democratic convention

  • HObama HObamanana

    For all the nonsense we heard about the horrible Tea Party people that were accused of stating they wanted to kill Obama, there is now video proof that a Democrat delegate wants to kill Mitt Romney. This is not a joke.

    • BronwynsHarbor

      Thank god she probably couldn’t do it (because she is so old and too obese), but she probably knows people … I trust that the Secret Service will be interviewing this person???

      • HObama HObamanana

        Yes, they are supposed to be investigating. I agree, she is no real threat. But it is the fact that she said it, and it is proven she said it, which is troubling. Especially considering how crazy the Dims have been, making baseless charges of threats and acts of violence perpetrated by the GOP.

        I’m all for giving the other side hell, with an extra dose of fire and brimstone. But actually calling for physical harm? Not this human.

  • HObama HObamanana

    Politico reported, on January 23, 2009, that when approached by Republicans expressing concerns about the amount of spending in the Stimulus package Obama told them, “I won.” That would be three days after Obama took the oath of office.

    The exchange arose as top House and Senate Republicans expressed concern to the president about the amount of spending in the package. They also raised red flags about a refundable tax credit that returns money to those who don’t pay income taxes, the sources said.

    The Republicans stressed that they want to include more middle class tax cuts in the package, citing their proposal to cut the two lowest tax rates — 15 percent and 10 percent — to ten percent and five percent, rather than issue the refundable credit Obama wants.

    Evidence that it was the Republicans attempting to cut taxes for the middle class.

    The National Journal reported, on October 23, 2010, that Mitch McConnell made the statement that “The single most important thing we want to achieve is for President Obama to be a one-term President.”

    NJ Does that mean endless, or at least frequent, confrontation with the president?

    McConnell If President Obama does a Clintonian backflip, if he’s willing to meet us halfway on some of the biggest issues, it’s not inappropriate for us to do business with him.

    This makes it clear who was/is responsible for the partisan gridlock in Washington D.C. from the very beginning of the Obama Administration.

  • LouFilliger

    I was a bit disheartened by how little was made of yesterday’s Villaraigosa-DNC Platform fiasco in today’s WSJ and other news outlets. The WSJ article, for example, said “Many people apparently voted no”. That’s about like saying Jaws was apparently a shark. And that’s the only place I really saw much mention of it at all. I had hoped it was going to be a gamechanger but so far it looks like it definitely won’t be.

    • http://twitter.com/beyondpartisan beyond partisan

      It doesn’t matter if the MSM covered it. The video went viral. It’s been talked about all over the blogosphere. Even my liberal Democrat friends think it was a cluster#^@#.

      • LouFilliger

        That’s encouraging.

      • BronwynsHarbor

        And EVERY person who GOES TO CHURCH — no matter the religion (!) — will hear ALL about it. Can you imagine the sermons that will be written about it?

    OMG! Stephanie Cutter just spoke the TRUTH. Cutter said that Barack Obama did NOT READ THE PLATFORM and didn’t know about the language re God/Jerusalem.

    Of course Obama didn’t read it. (Frankly, who would, but Debbie Darling spoke as if Obama were intimately familiar with the platform.)

    • beachnan

      I read last night, I believe on Breitbart, that Obama had read the platform before the convention and had approved it. It was only after the Republicans jumped all over it, that they realized it was a bad idea to not include God, and Jeresalum.

      • BronwynsHarbor

        I’ll bet you a DNC trinket that Obama did not read that platform. Not one word.

        • HObama HObamanana

          You may be right. But I’ll bet you a DNC, Once you vote Black, trinket that, at the time, his spokespeople said he did. He was likely hitting the links or hitting people up for cash while he was out bamboozling.

    • mgm

      If Cutter is correct then Dingbat Debbie really is living in an alternate universe. I wonder what she is smoking–she sounds absolutely senseless. And today’s Democrats can’t figure out why sane moderate former Democrats have left the fold? And are worried, very worried, about these clowns running the country? (Or ruining the country) This woman, Wasserman-Schultz, is in a Democratic LEADERSHIP position. It’s downright scary.

    • HObama HObamanana

      I don’t buy this at all. They are getting ready to throw DWS under the bus because they know from polling that she is the most reprehensible Democrat representative. Cutter is just lying like she always does.

      • CathyInKs

        I agree HObama! They treat women terribly in the current dem. party. They send out DWS to lie and say incredibly stupid things so she’ll be the “face you love to hate” instead of Obama and gang. Then after she’s fulfilled her purpose she’ll be sent to the chopping block and maybe someone like Cutter will take her place.

        • BronwynsHarbor

          Stephanie Cutter is scarier than Kathy Bates with her hatchet in “Misery.”

          • HObama HObamanana

            I heard that her nickname in law school was Hatchet Jaws. They don’t call her Cutter for nothing.

      • BronwynsHarbor

        That’s why I posted that Tweet from Politico about Debbie’s “future” being “hazy.” UNDER DA BUS GOES DEBBIE AGAIN. And she even changed her hairdo to be a NEW DEBBIE!

        • HObama HObamanana

          Her new doo and the makeup really crack me up. It’s impossible to hide the ugliness of her soul, try as they may. And I’m sure they gave it their best shot. On the bright side, once she is finally thrown under the bus for good she has a legendary future in horror films. A remake of Bride of Frankenstein is long overdue.

        • CathyInKs

          I really feel sorry for Debbie! I think she really wants to be liked but because of her natural hyperactivity she has a hard time shutting up! And I think her desire to be in the limelight has made her a perfect foil for the President! You know what I’d do if I were her – since at this point she may have nothing to lose – I’d go do an interview and say I’m resigning as Dem chairperson. Say I’m sick and tired of lying for the Pres.and regurgitating the stupid talking points I’ve been given! She could change people’s opinion of her with one “stroke”. Of course she’d be “persona non grata” with the dems. but who cares! She’d be a heroine to the rest of the country!

    • getfitnow

      He didn’t read the health care bill either. He hasn’t worked. As Sununu put it, he spent the first 2 years throwing away stimulus money and allowing Pelosi/Reid ram through health care and the last years fund raising, playing golf and making celebrity personal appearances.

  • HObama HObamanana

    In an unexpected bright side to the DNC’s, they were against Jerusalem being the capital of Israel before there were not really sorta for it, the Palestinians and the Israelis have reached a mutual agreement. They both say it was done for political purposes.

    First, the Israeli response:

    The addition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital to the Democratic platform does not make up for the party’s original intentions, Knesset Speaker Reuven Rivlin said on Thursday

    “I have no doubt that [US President Barack] Obama put Jerusalem back in his party’s platform out of political and electoral considerations and because of the sharp criticism from Israel and the US,” Rivlin stated.

    Next, the Palestinian response:

    Nabil Abu Rdeneh, an aide to Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, said the Democrat’s decision might just be “election propaganda.” He said a failure to recognize the Palestinian claim to East Jerusalem will “destroy the peace process” and lead to “endless war.”

    Gee, those Democrats are outstanding stewards of our nation’s standing in the world. I expect the planet will be healing any moment now.

    • BronwynsHarbor

      Good god almighty. Oh well, those two groups will be fighting for the next 1,000 years. Sad to say. VERY sad to say.

    Are there any armchair doctors in the house? I am very curious about something. Since I got a flu bug, my pulmonologist put me on antibiotics and steroids. It’s the damndest thing but my brain synapses seem to fire better. I just played my goof-off game, Mahjongg, and beat my all-time high score. And I notice that I can remember people’s NAMES so much better than usual! (I don’t have to search Google or Wikipedia to remember people’s names, like I often did and was concerned about.) Is it the steroids? What are they doing to my brain? If I could keep thinking like I am, I would love to take them all the time. (Nothing else is different in my daily life.)

    • HObama HObamanana

      I wouldn’t advise taking either drug for long periods of time. Steroids will kill you from the inside out and antibiotics will destroy your immune system.

    • http://twitter.com/beyondpartisan beyond partisan

      Steroids turn me into an angry bitch. Either people get euphoria on them, or they feel horrible. Unfortunately, I feel horrible on them.

      • BronwynsHarbor

        I had the bitch thing for the first round, but now I have the euphoria thing. Which I admit I LOVE!!! Now, if I could keep that euphoric feeling (tend to get depressed), I would keep taking steroids just to feel happy more often.

      • HObama HObamanana

        Steroids turned me into a raging lunatic. More than normal, that is. I don’t like them.

    • DianaLC

      Here’s my armchair doctoring. Perhaps it’s the antibiotics working. Whenever I get antibiotics, I feel an immediate improvement in my mood and mental functioning. I think my body switches from keeping my brain functioning to trying to fight any infection I have.
      Recently I had to go back to the doctor for more antibiotics because my sinus infection had returned. They were hesitant to give them to me again, but I believe I just had an evil long-term infection and it required the second dose to get rid of it. My mind cleared up also.
      Once when I kept getting kidney infections one after another, the doctor decided to hospitalize me for a few days and zap the germs with all he could give. I never got another one of those infections again.
      You may have had a long-term infection.
      But, I can’t compare my feeling to anything in regard to steroids, as I don’t really remember ever having a prescription for steroids other than the tiny dose in the prescribed nasal spray that I use every so often.

      • BronwynsHarbor

        THANK YOU! That makes a lot of sense. I do sometimes get bugs that linger on and on. I had one two years ago that landed me in the hospital for a week, although much of that was because no one checked my blood/oxygen level, which was 83 … after a smart nurse checked it and my doctor saw the # 83, he freaked out and called 911. (A bit of overkill, if you ask me … and it cost me a fortune for the stupid ambulance that took me to a hospital FIVE MINUTES AWAY, and my neighbor was with me and was driving anyway.) And we wonder why medical costs are soaring!

        • HObama HObamanana

          I went to a clinic to see a doctor and was told I needed to go to a hospital immediately. The nurse said she was going to call an ambulance to take me. I assured her that I could drive there on my own. When I arrived at the emergency room they then chastised me that I drove myself. Lovely people. Ain’t life grand.

    Just in case you were wondering who the Einsteins were that omitted God and Jerusalem from the DNC Platform, here they are.

    The Platform Drafting Committee will be chaired by former Governor Ted Strickland of Ohio. Named to serve as members on the committee are former U.S. Representative Tony Coelho, Tino Cuellar, U.S. Representative Barney Frank, Donna Harris-Aikens, Colin Kahl, Nancy Keenan, Heather Kendall Miller, Thea Lee, U.S. Representative Barbara Lee, Susan Ness, Mayor Michael Nutter, Carlos Odio, former U.S. Representative Robert Wexler and Christen Young. Serving as ex-officio members are Governor Deval Patrick, DNC Secretary Alice Germond, and Tom Wheeler.

      Well, I am a heathen who wouldn’t be caught dead going to church (and probably would be if I were to permit a funeral service, which I won’t) … but even I found the omission of God offensive. God is a very generic term — the word applies to a great many different religions. And I do believe that there is SOME kind of being because it is nearly impossible to imagine the birth of the universe by pure chance, even though that’s probably how it happened.

    The MSM is digging deep to try to find anything to tarnish Paul Ryan’s reputation, no matter how trivial. First, it was his marathon times from the 1990′s, now it’s the number of mountains climbed. It’s all they have against him, they can’t claim that his budgetary proposals are inherently racists for a very obvious reason.

    I began to ponder over all this sudden MSM fascination about exaggeration. Then I recalled Wilt Chamberlain’s famous boast that he had had sex with some incredible number of women. I recall performing a quick calculation at that time and, even assuming a very early age of 11 at which he might have entered puberty, he still would have needed to have sex, as such term is particularly defined by Bill Clinton, with 2.7 women per day, every day. up to the day he made that comment.

    As far as wild exaggerations are concerned, the biggest whopper of them all is “the private sector is doing fine!” as attributed to Barack Obama, August, 2012.

    • http://twitter.com/beyondpartisan beyond partisan

      it’s pretty pathetic…no-one is going to get all riled up about the running/mountain climbing stuff except die-hard Dems. They also are making a big mistake by even associating him with mountain climbing. Because what’s the impression people will walk away with? “Paul Ryan is a mountain climber!” Which makes him even cooler than he already was!

      • KenoshaMarge

        I am a little riled up about Ryan’s bullshit. I thought him an honest man. Shame on him!

        • piattq

          I have climbed a few 14 teeners myself and I think Ryan’s statement might not be beyond grasp when he was young and an eager beaver.

      P.S. I saw Wilt Chamberlain during the 1990 Goodwill Games, and he was with the SAME BLONDE every day — and I saw him at least 5 days in a row because I went to all those basketball games as did he. Btw, he was not very nice to his fans…. but that’s okay. It must get really old to have people bothering one all the time. But, man oh man, was he HUGE! Too bad he died so young.

      That is TERRIBLE. “The NFL Football game, featuring the Cowboys versus the Giants, garnered a 8.7″. EVEN this is better: “On CBS, Big Brother garnered a 2.1 adults ”

      • mgm

        I imagine there are a number of us here with exactly the same voting record, myself included. Although I had to really force myself to vote for Kerry, the weakest candidate the Dems could have fielded. It was then that I started to realize
        the Dem party leaders did not have the country’s
        best interests in mind.(I had campaigned hard for Wesley Clark, but he was way too intelligent and independent for them to manipulate.) Their asinine treatment of Hillary Clinton sealed the deal, destroying any loyalty to the Democrats I had left. I’m not crazy about Republicans either, but right now they have the best game in town with Romney.

      • CathyInKs

        My story too!

    • BronwynsHarbor

      WHAT in the name of god are you talking about?

      You BET I voted for Bush Sr. and for Robert Dole. And I would vote for them again. I always voted. And I volunteered for Bush Sr.’s campaign — I made telephone calls at the Seattle headquarters where my little girl got her photo taken with some of Bush’s children.

      I grew up in a state where there were as many FINE Republican candidates as there were Democratic … and I was raised to vote for the person, not the party. Yes, at times I have wandered over to the left and then back to the right — but NEVER the far left OR the far right. I wish there were a moderate party, but both parties have been taken over by EXTREMISTS, although at least the Republicans are more polite to Democrats (most of the time). I am PROUD of my voting record and, yes, I woud have voted for Bill Clinton because I knew about Bush Jr. in 1998 and KNEW he was not the best choice. (But he had too much money for any other candidate to have a chance. JUST LIKE I supported Bill Bradley rather than Al Gore, who I didn’t like and thought he went overboard on global warming. But Bradley lost and so I supported Al Gore. I also headed a Howard Dean Meetup and even flew to Vermont — but Dean’s campaign was BADLY mismanaged by Joe Trippi who spent money like a drunken sailor.

      THEN, in 2007-2008, I was STUNNED to find myself called a RACIST because I supported Hillary Clinton instead of Obama. (Thank god that the Daily Kos favorite choice, John Edwards, didn’t make it .. they are so good at picking candidates over there. Not.)

      You Obamabots BLEW IT by trying to destroy the lives of people who voiced their concerns about Obama. NOT VERY SMART. Never again will I trust a Democrat — oh, except the Democrat I am likely going to vote for in an open Congressional race. Because he has great business experience as well as government know-how +++ he knows this district intimately.

        We “Obamabots” blew it? You’ve been voting for losers for twenty years!

        • HObama HObamanana

          As Barack Obama, your lord and Master, said to Clint Eastwood: Go fuck yourself!

        • TeakWoodKite

          Even Obots know the Dems are losers. Who knew?

        • KenoshaMarge

          As Browyn said…

        • mgm

          Yes, you Obama people blew it! Big time!
          And don’t say we Hillary supporters didn’t warn you. If the Democrats lose this election, the fault wil lie squarely with you who refused to listen to reason, who shouted down anyone who disagreed with you, and who called Hillary supporters racists. If Hillary had been treated fairly, she would have won the election easily and would now be well on her way to winning a second term. (And btw, I’d been a registered Democrat for 52 years until an inexperienced, community organizer and his Chicago pals took over the Democratic party.)

          • CathyInKs

            Amen mgm! I’d been a registered dem. for 40 years when the thugs from Chicago hijacked the party in 2008 and drove out most of the moderates and blue dogs. They called us “racists”, “stupid”, “hicks” to name a few of the more printable epithets. Do they think they’re we’re going to return to the fold by doing the same thing again? When hell freezes over is my response!

      Where? I am dense … what are you referring to?

    Great article about Sandra Fluke’s victim shtick on Cain TV: http://www.caintv.com/SandraFlukesDNCspeechaboguscry-368

    • BronwynsHarbor

      That is a simply fantastic article. Can he ever write.

      This part — well, i have to quote it:

      To recap:

      – She’s a well-educated political player and activist

      – She’s testified before a Congressional committee

      – She’s spoken with the President, the most powerful person in the world.

      – She and her message have now appeared on hundreds of TV and radio shows

      – She spoke last night to a political convention broadcast nationally and watched by Millions.

      All of this boils down to one simple fact: The only reason Americans know Sandra Fluke’s name is because, in The United States, women AREN’T silenced. Many have pointed out that, if she’d like to see what oppression of women really looks like, she should take a look at Iran, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, or China – nations where females endure hardships she could scarcely imagine.

      • http://twitter.com/beyondpartisan beyond partisan

        Yep, and this is why Sandra Fluke Feminism is so sad. There are so many seriously oppressed women in the world today. And she wants free birth control, which she could get anyway at Planned Parenthood!

        • BronwynsHarbor

          Or get her many partners to wear a damn rubber (or dental dam, as it were) to protect herself — and them! — from sexually transmitted diseases. I’m getting tired of typing this but will keep on.

        • HELENK2

          will she expect us to buy the candy and the liquor next??

          • CathyInKs

            A friend of mine said since she’s too old to need birth control ( free or not) she would like Sandra Fluke to demand free liposuction and lifestyle lifts. Seems fair to me!

  • HELENK2

    did a democratic delegate quit and join occupy over God vote?

    • HObama HObamanana

      These dudes definitely look and sound like the stoner types. When the one guy stopped at the end and said that it was ok because it was just a water bottle I could almost hear him thinking how relieved he was that it wasn’t his bong.

    • CathyInKs

      I kind of identify with the young delegate who quit (not because I agree with his views) but because the vote was just a charade. It’s what happened in 2008 to Hillary and her supporters. Obama was selected – not elected.

    ***BREAKING*** Tom Brokaw has been hospitalized.

    Trying to put on a brave face, Brokaw said that the grueling schedule from the Conventions was making him feel light headed. My sources, however, indicate conflicting causes for his sudden illness. One claims that he was misquoted and that it was all the gruel the Democrats were trying to feed the country and apparently served to all media spokespeople that caused severe malnutrition. He recounted how he had suddenly found himself standing in a food stamps line, completely unaware of how he’d gotten there.

    Another source said that the illness was caused by being in too close proximity to Chris Matthews. According to my source, who would only go on record anonymously because MSNBC thugs had threatened to make him kiss Rachel Maddow, Brokaw said that when Matthews spoke all the life giving oxygen was sucked out of the room, being replaced by noxious, poisonous gasses.

    UPDATE: I’ve received another unconfirmed report from the hospital that the cause of Brokaw’s mysterious illness is, in fact, Kool-Aid poisoning.

    • BronwynsHarbor

      I am sobbing.

      He says it was that 1/2 Ambien. You know, that could be true. I used to take Ambien and I had no idea how much it affected my little brain … and, if I took an entire Ambien, I had a terrible time keeping my eyes open when I was driving the next day. That is bad stuff.

      Also: It quits working after a while. It stopped working for me – I’d wake up 2 to 3 hours after I went to sleep. That was due to the pain in my back and neck / nothing to do with insomnia. So it is back to the drawing board for insomnia. Wish I could have a glass of wine or a shot of bourbon but I take medications that forbid my drinking any alcohol. (Including (!) Ambien!!! — which thankfully I stopped taking. And I remember when I had NO insurance and I paid $100 at Costco because there was no generic at that time. STUPID. But I was desperate to sleep, yet again it was pain that awakened me. Oh well.

      • HObama HObamanana

        Despite my obvious snark and his just as obvious liberal lean I’ve always enjoyed Brokaw. He now narrates a great series about the baseball Hall of Fame members. Seriously wish him the best. But he hasn’t looked well the last few times I’ve seen him on television.

        • BronwynsHarbor

          Oh dear. That is sad to hear. Let’s hope he is okay. And I really hope he doesn’t take Ambien. It is dangerous, and I believe that Kennedy who had taken an Ambien and had a car accident. It is a heavy-duty drug and it slows reflexes, makes one too sleepy for too long, etc.

        • beachnan

          Sorry this happened to him, but I have no respect for his obvious bias. He doesn’t belong in the media anymore. He and so many others have lost all credibility.

      • DianaLC

        I have a sleep disorder that raises its ugly head often. The more tired and wound up I get from working, the more difficult it is for me to sleep. I’ve gone for a few days at a time without sleeping, which is a very unhealthy thing to do.
        Most over the counter and other prescription sleeping medications make me so darned groggy the next day, I don’t like to take them even at small doses. The same goes for some of the “natural” pills.
        The doctor gave me Ambien, and I loved it. I had no side effects—until the third time I took one. I took it to soon and didn’t do as the directions said and take it only when I was going to get into bed IMMEDIATELY after taking it.
        I did what many people do on that drug: I was walking around asleep–naked. It scared the bejeezus out of my kids who quickly grabbed a robe and put me in bed until I stayed there.
        I got off that immediately. Finally the doctor told me to take an Actifed, which did the trick. However, now I can’t get those because of the meth craze. So, I just take one over the counter pill with the diphen…. sometthing (I think?) ingredient in them. They do the trick if I am just experiencing one night of inability to sleep.

        • BronwynsHarbor

          Exactly. And that diphen…etc. (HA!) works. Just do not do what I did in the 1980s when I was so desperate to sleep that I would take 4 or 6 (sometimes MORE!). BENADRYL is what I took. That is the only drug I have ever abused … and it is a miracle my liver still works. It also gave me “restless leg syndrome,” which despite what Bill Maher says, is a REAL CONDITION and maddening because it is impossible to sleep then! I stopped Benadryl, no more restless leg syndrome. These drugs are scary.

      • foxyladi14

        So sorry to hear that .please do not drink with those pills.(((hugs))))BronwynsHarbor

        • BronwynsHarbor

          I haven’t taken any for nearly a year. I believe in taking as few drugs as possible because they ALL interact with each other, even if doctors and pharmacists deny it. And none of them explain WHEN and HOW to take medications. I know enough not to take ANY drug when I take Prevacid (formerly Prilosec, which does NOT work). I wait at least one hour — usually two hours — before I take any other drug, even blood pressure medication. Prevacid surely messes up how the drugs get into my system.

      Could be/should be a punishment for saying:

      http://www.realclearpolitics.com/video/2012/09/05/tom_brokaw_denies_existence_of_liberal_media_bias.html

      Unfortunately not a punishment. He’s out of the hospital and fine. Or as fine as a lying POS can be.

        Sometimes, when I am feeling generous, I feel as if their stupidity alone is enough punishment.
