Taegan Goddard's Political Wire

Come on teabaggers, let's rally around our candidate Mr. D'Annunzio. Sarah Palin, Ayn-Rand Paul? Where are you?
Taegan Goddard's Political Wire: "North Carolina Republicans 'have escalated an unprecedented campaign against one of their own congressional candidates,' with the party chairman calling Tim D'Annunzio (R) 'unfit for public office at any level,' according to the Charlotte Observer.

Newly-surfaced court documents portray D'Annunzio as 'a self-described religious zealot' who once called the federal government the Antichrist and told his ex-wife that he'd found the Ark of the Covenant.

D'Annunzio finished first in the May 4 primary and faces a June 22 runoff against Harold Johnson (R) in the state's 8th congressional district. The winner faces off against Rep. Larry Kissell (D-NC)."

Massachusetts Voters Take Over Sen. Scott Brown's Office

To be a successful Republican means that one cannot embrace or even shake hands with a Democrat. Just ask Charlie Crist or Bob Bennett. Or, perish the thought, work with the Democrats on anything. Just ask Lyndsy Graham or Arlen Specter. To be a successful Republican means you must blindly follow the incompetent Republican leaders lock, stock, and barrell.

I know my rhetoric sounds harsh, but is it not true? To be a successful Republican your sole goal in your position as a lawmaker is not to better the people in passing meaningful laws but to crush any and all Democrats by lies, confusion, and demonization.

"We want our country back from that big scary black man in the White House." The Republican "come to Jesus moment?" January 21st of last year. To be a successful Republican you must try and de-legitimize any and all Democratic election victories.

Utah Senate 2010: Election BREAKING News

Ever since the start of the Clinton administration the Republican party has become unhinged with their attacks on Democrats and anyone who does not share their ideology at every level. No room for compromise. Today, the party of no, with the advent of the teabaggers, whom they warmly embrace, and their flirting on the fringes of racism, are becoming marginalized as kooks. "I want my country back from the scary black man in the White House!" They're letting this RINO thing get to their heads and kicking out anyone who has ever shaken hands with a Democrat. In the end I think it's going to hurt them, and it couldn't happen to a more deserving bunch of folks.

Why the Dodd Financial Services Bill Is Bad... For Democrats

To Frank Luntz, the wordsmith of all things Republican:
I guess after what we've been through regarding healthcare reform I kind of resent the Huffington Post for giving you a forum to express your made-up views.
There's so much wrong with your post that I don't know where to begin. The fact that you use the term "Obamacare" is insulting to me. You and your cohorts tried, and succeeded in demonizing and lying about healthcare reform from day one to today. Kind of like George Bush saying Saddam was responsible for 9/11, if Bush said it enough, people believed it.
To address just one point, yes I think the people are smart enough to choose the bank which offers the best terms in checking accounts. Following you silly logic we should never be able to put any costs on any corporation because they will pass on those costs. Of course they will! And we will choose whom to do biz with. I guess putting money into the FDIC as banks are required to do is a tax on consumers also? Get off yourself.
So you have no credibility in telling the truth, or your truth, about the financial reform bill. As I said, even before the debate began Republicans were spreading your lies day after day.
I understand your're in the word business but I don't understand why you have to be so dishonest and nasty about it, while still maintaining that veneer of niceness and "I'm just doing my job guys." - I don't think so.
