    Dictator Hair: Is this man’s hair any less crazy than that man’s hair? - Lewis Black
Republican-Teaparty Big Bucket of Fail: Thursday morning
Only the Republicans could turn smartness into an insult.
John “Ironsides” Bolton would have gone in [to Libya] with boots on the ground and guns a-blazing the second day of the conflict.
GOP Reps. Jim Jordan (OH), Tim Scott (SC), Scott Garrett (NJ), Dan Burton (IN), and Louie Gohmert (TX) have introduced H.R. 1135, which would cut off food stamp benefits to entire families if one adult member engages in a strike.
How racist are Arizona Republican State Sen. Lori Klein and Senate  President Russell Pearce? This racist.

And then Mitt’s voice got quiet and, fighting emotion, he began…
“I should tell my story,” Romney said. “I’m also unemployed.”

The Caucus:
He chuckled. The eight people gathered  around him, who had just finished talking about strategies of finding  employment in a slow-to-recover economy, joined him in laughter.

Because, really, if you’ve been sapped into discussing your  strategies for finding a job with a multi-millionaire who then jokes  about being unemployed, what are you going to do but laugh along with him? Laugh and then go home and hang yourself from the rafters, I suppose.
Mitt Romney cares about the little people — he just wants to make  them laugh. Oh, and he’d also like to extend those tax cuts for the  wealthy so he can stay ‘unemployed’ for a long, long time.

    Rand Paul defends Mitt: “I think we’re all corporations. All of us are corporations.” →

    Rand Paul: still worshiping Aqua Budda.

    ThinkProgress asked Paul about Romney’s comments prior to the Republican presidential debate in Ames. Paul rushed to the former governor’s defense, arguing that Romney was correct in his equivalency between man and mega-company…

    KEYES: What did you make of Mitt Romney’s statement today that “corporations are people”?

    PAUL: Corporations are collections of people. I think we’re all corporations. To say we’re going to punish corporations like they’re someone else. All of us are corporations.

    It’s unsurprising that Paul would side with corporations. In the past, Paul has expressed his affection for the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, was quick to defend BP during its high-profile act of corporate irresponsibility, and during the 2010 campaign, complained that disabilities laws are unfair to the business owner.

    Sarah Palin agrees with Mitt also, too: Corporations are people. “People pay the taxes.” →

    Governor? Why are they always calling her that, as if she served her term. They ought to call her HALF-GOVERNOR or QUITTER. Anyways, Palin’s made some moolah since she quit being Alaska’s governor, so she agrees with Romney.

    From Think Progress:

    KEYES: Governor, are corporations people?

    PALIN: The people pay the taxes. It’s not an entity — the corporation itself — that pays the taxes. It’s the people who pay the taxes. So Mitt Romney was right.

    […] Note to Palin: corporations as legal entities do in fact pay taxes.

    If corporations are people, can they also be the “real Amurkins” she thinks she can identify?

    Useful idiots: Republican / Teapublican base voters →

    Romney’s line that “corporations are people,” which was defended by Palin and Rand Paul yesterday, along with the GOP debate in Iowa, should convince everyone that corporations are fully, 100% protected by the Teaparty GOP. No worries there.

    If you’re a Republican / Teapublican base voter and you’re working- or middle-class, then you’re their useful idiot. If federal programs and services that you use need to be cut because there isn’t enough tax revenue coming in to pay for them, and you support this outlandish argument that the wealthy and corporations need MORE tax cuts instead of less, then you’re their useful idiot.

    Romney, Palin and Paul all get something out of defending big corporations and their low, low tax rates: money. But if you’re a working- or middle-class peasant, you get nothing.  And yet, unbelievably, you feel you’ve won something by paying more in taxes than profitable corporations and trust-fund millionaires, and by bringing home less of an income today than you could have three decades ago. The GOP and Fox and rightwing blogs and radio hosts all tell you who you should hate, who to fear (unions, gays, Muslims, libruls, the black president, etc), and you get to feel you’re in The Club when you comply. And that’s exactly how useful idiots are produced and exactly how big your reward will be in the end. Enjoy your club membership.

    Sarah Palin agrees with Mitt also, too: Corporations are people. “People pay the taxes.”

    shorterexcerpts:

I love this so hard.

Ron Paul wants to go back to the gold standard, because in those days gold-backed nickels had pictures of bumblebees on them. “Gimme five ‘bees’ for a quarter” you’d say.

…
the ‘bees’ thing made me ALOL (actually laugh out loud)

    Chest Puffing to be the next Bush?

    PERRY:I know back and forth -- Michael Dukakis created jobs three times faster than you did, Mitt.
    ROMNEY:Well, as a matter of fact, George Bush and his predecessor created jobs at a faster rate than you did, Governor.
    PERRY:That's not correct.
    ROMNEY:Yes, that is correct.

    Mitt Romney Says When Unions Donate Money It’s ‘A Form Of Corruption’ →

    stfuconservatives:

    rantingnraging:

    cognitivedissonance:

    It’s only because they’re not corporations, and corporations are people. When corporations love each other very much, they can bundle their money and make SuperPACs of DOOM!

    Of course, when the people band together to fight corporate influence and exploitation, that’s wrong. When their organization chooses to donate to a political cause or candidate, that’s corrupt. Yeah, totally makes sense.

    People organizing = unpatriotic, corrupt union
    Businesses organizing = US Chamber of Commerce. 

    he’s just salty that they’d never donate to his campaign. they’d totes be okay then.

    The general Republican viewpoint on fundraising is “every kind of campaign donation I’m not getting is corrupt, but if they want to donate to me, that’s just freedom of speech WHY DO YOU HATE THE CONSTITUTION???”

    Really, the entire Republican party would support the extermination of all labor unions. How else will they be able to implement the following GREAT IDEAS for job growth that would certainly benefit their corporate donors at the expense of the American worker:

LOLRomney: Mitt says more dumb things — 09/28/11 edition

TPM:
But Wednesday, Romney upped the outsider  ante, claiming spending the better part of two decades running for  office doesn’t classify as having a “political career.”
“Why am I in it? It’s not the next step of  my career, by the way,” he said when asked why he’s running for  president. “I don’t have a political career.”

We’ll just add this to the growing list of really dumb things Romney has said. Like, “corporations are people,” or “I didn’t inhale” (about being governor), or “My  sons are all adults and they’ve made decisions about their careers and  they’ve chosen not to serve in the military and active duty and I  respect their decision in that regard. One of the ways my sons  are showing support for our nation is helping me get elected because  they think I’d be a great president.“

    Two videos: Perry’s BFF, Pastor Jeffress, who says Mormonism is “a cult” vs. The Book of Mormon’s “I Believe”
WHO HAS A DIRECT LINE TO GOD? Which GOP candidate for president would have Jesus on speed dial — Romney or Perry?

Conservatives Slam Rick Perry For Failure To Rebuke ‘Moron’ Pastor Who Called Mormonism ‘A Cult’
At the Value Voters Summit last Friday,  the First Baptist Church of Dallas’ Senior Pastor Robert Jeffress — who  introduced Texas Gov. Rick Perry (R) at the event — decried Mormonism as “a cult” that is definitively “not Christianity.” “The decision for evangelical  Christians right now is going to be do we prefer someone who is truly a  believer in Jesus Christ or someone…who is part of a cult,” he said,  seemingly referring to Mormon GOP candidates Mitt Romney and John  Huntsman. To Jeffress, Perry is the “genuine follower of Jesus Christ.”
Perry’s campaign first said “the governor doesn’t judge what is in the heart and soul of  others,” but then issued a statement that “he does not believe  [Mormonism] is a cult.” That bare-bones remark has done little, however,  to assuage Huntsman, who flatly called Jeffress a “moron.”  “The fact that, you know, some moron can stand up and make a comment  like that, you know, first of all, it’s outrageous,” Huntsman told CNN’s  Wolf Blitzer. When asked how he thought Perry should react, Huntsman  declared, “Make an immediate and decisive break. Period”

Robert Jeffress (Rick Perry’s BFF) said that if America elects a Mormon we will receive God’s judgment –
