Outrageous Things Politicians Say

politics-stupidOur new Secretary of State, John Kerry, gave a very bizarre speech in Charlottesville, VA yesterday.  It was even more telling, since just a month ago he was a sitting United Sates Senator.  He rambled about how our foreign policy problems are the result of...  are you ready for this...  The United States Congress and the looming foreign policy cuts that are coming if the sequestration cuts take effect.  Clueless and OUTRAGEOUS!

OUTRAGEOUS!

Outrageous Things Politicians Say

politics-stupid It is difficult to think of something more asinine uttered by a politician in the recent past.  During floor debate in the Colorado House of Representatives last Friday on Colorado's concealed carry law, Representative Joe Salazar made some of the dumbest, most ridiculous comments you will ever hear about a woman facing an attacker and about to be raped.  OUTRAGEOUS!

Hey Democrats! Poll this!

the-fingerAn alert went out last Wednesday calling together the brass of the Democratic Party about what to do to turn the tragedy in Newtown, Connecticut, to their political advantage.
