Quote of the Day – Donald Trump remains a Birther

“That’s the way life works… He didn’t know he was running for president, so he told the truth. The literary agent wrote down what he said… He said he was born in Kenya and raised in Indonesia… Now they’re saying it was a mistake. Just like his Kenyan grandmother said he was born in Kenya, and she pointed down the road to the hospital, and after people started screaming at her she said, ‘Oh, I mean Hawaii.’ Give me a break.”

– Trump in an interview

Another name for Birther is Asshole.

The Great Southern Primary Day

Well, it’s the Tuesday of the Alabama and Mississippi Republican Primaries (and the Hawaii Caucus as well), and everyone is waiting to see who carries the South.

All of the remaining candidates have been sucking up in great Southern fashion (of course, Ron Paul remains in his same format… no need to change here.) Romney raves over “cheesy grits,” although I’m not sure they will ever get on his campaign plane’s menu. Santorum pushes himself as the “true Conservative”when he faces the Romney challenge. Newt knows he is from the south and needs to get at least one of the two states to maintain his position if there is a brokered convention.

Of course, all of them have to look squarely in the eye of the EDUCATED SOUTHERN CONSERVATIVE POPULATION! How educated? Well, as examples:

The poll of Mississippi Republicans found that 52% said they believed Obama is a Muslim, 36% weren’t sure and only 12% said they believed he is a Christian

Alabama Poll

See? This is a thinking group of voters who are not held back by either truth or proof. They believe what they want to believe, right or wrong. How this relates to the current candidates, we will know tomorrow.

John Boehner

John (Asshole) Boehner

WASHINGTON — House Speaker John Boehner says Americans have a right to think what they want to think, even when they are wrong about President Barack Obama‘s citizenship and his religion.

Boehner tells NBC’sMeet the Press” that he believes Obama was born in Hawaii and that the president is a Christian, and that those are facts.
Some people believe that Obama was born outside the U.S. or in some other way is not a natural-born citizen eligible to be president. There is also a persistent belief among some that Obama is a Muslim.
Boehner denies that he is willing to let those misperceptions remain because they weaken and delegitimize Obama.

Asked why he doesn’t speak against such perceptions, Boehner says it’s not his job to tell Americans what to think.

Certainly, no Democrat would let such Bullcrap stand against a Republican. Boehner either has no need to make his Party seem intelligent, or he is carrying out a political ploy. Let’s hope it’s one of the many things that make his control of the House a short one.

Today’s most alarming story… History is changed!

And what is the story? 12,000 gallons a minute coming out of the oil leak? Mitch McConnell votes “No”?

Nope. Neither one of those,

The most alarming story… one that shows unexpected change in the Universe… came out of Hawaii.

Willie Nelson trimmed his hair and cut off the pigtails.

What is our world coming to?
