Republican idiocy

Tuesday Twitter roundup

The harsh reality of the GOP's failure to properly fund public education:

And no math formula can make it right:

The sacrificial lamb bleats:

I hope you haven't eaten yet, because this is seriously nauseating:

We'll start today's entry with some meme-busting:

Editor "Emeritus" calls Junior Berger a Democrat

And we wonder why we have so many low information voters:

I had an acquaintance who lived in New York City at the time. He was a member of a group — I think it was something like New Yorkers For Hunt — who raised money in New York to try to defeat Helms. And there were big special interest groups and political action committees all across the nation sending money here. It will be the same this year.

Maybe the voters have already expressed their desire for such rules here in our Sixth District. In the runoff for our congressional seat, Democrat Phil Berger gladly accepted funds from all over. Republican Mark Walker took no PAC funds or special interest money. And although he had half the money Berger did, Walker won decisively.

Bolding mine. There have been some fairly asinine opinion columns so far this year, but this one takes the cake. Not one word about the millions already spent by AFP and other Republican groups attacking Kay Hagan since late last year, but plenty of innuendo about Democrats. Even when they're not Democrats. And you can bet if they do publish a correction, it will be buried on page 9.

More incomprehensible jibber-jabber from the DAG:

And when you're done, maybe you can get somebody to interpret the words that come out of your mouth.

Never one to miss an opportunity for sour grapes:

If you had read the decision, you'd know that very issue (majority rule) was addressed and discarded, at least as it bears on equality. Which you demagogues should have known from the start.

Once again, the dreaded "R" word comes into play:

His chamber's a star chamber, where the elite decide who to punish.

Since I'm in the mood for a distraction from politics:

You know, unless you actually feed the poor creatures sweet, juicy peaches their entire sad lives, I'll stick with my peppery vinegary stuff, thank you very much.

N&O publishes pseudo-scientific attack on Obamacare

Feeding the fear-mongering machine:

In May, I released a comprehensive study showing how the Affordable Care Act – otherwise known as Obamacare – will likely play out in North Carolina over the next few years. The diagnosis isn’t good.

First, the short version. In two years, the ACA’s structural problems will lead to substantial premium increases. Once that happens, North Carolinians will likely leave the insurance market in droves. They’ll have little choice – they won’t be able to afford health insurance because federal subsidies won’t keep up with the rapid price increases. Within a decade, this could swell the ranks of the state’s uninsured by 57 percent.

It was either an oversight related to poor vetting on the part of the N&O's editorial staff, or an outright attempt to deceive their readership, but they failed to note this "doctor" was a PhD, as opposed to an MD. I don't usually quibble over that, because I have a lot of respect for PhDs. But when an article is related to medicine, the difference between the two is night and oranges. You don't allow those particular wires to be crossed, even when you're discussing economics. And this cookie-cutter article is appearing in other battleground states as well, proving that politics is behind the propaganda:

Tillis hones his IRS and BenghaziCare skills

Jumping on the meme bandwagon:

“The Obama administration and Kay Hagan have shown a complete lack of willingness to get the bottom of this scandal to determine whether or not Americans were targeted for their political beliefs,” said Tillis. “The IRS’ excuse that it conveniently lost emails that were subpoenaed by Congress is simply outrageous, and yet Kay Hagan continues to provide President Obama with political cover, once again failing to hold him accountable. The American people deserve the truth, and it’s time for a special prosecutor to be appointed to investigate.”

Speaking of e-mails, Thommy, what about all those back-and-forth communications related to the NC GOP's voter suppression efforts during gerrymandering season? Your IRS accusation has already been proven false after an in-depth perusal of the records, but investigations into the GOP here in NC have been stymied by claims of privilege and immunity. Give up all of those e-mails, and then you can bitch about the IRS.
