“Like most Americans, the president believes we cannot allow a mere allegation, in this case one from many years ago, to destroy a person’s life.”-Sarah Huckabee Sanders
From BUSINESS INSIDER:
- Republicans are split over what should happen to GOP Senate candidate Roy Moore after Thursday’s revelations about sexual misconduct allegations.
- Some want him to quit immediately, others are saying he should step aside “if” the accusation that Moore sexually abused a teenager almost 40 years ago is true, and a third camp is defending Moore.

There is much speculation about the tiny-handed Cuckwreck Orange’s choice for Secretary of State. Apparently, there are still lots of people in contention, including whackadoodle Rudy Giuliani, scary-ass John Bolton, Tennessee asshole Senator Bob Corker, and the latest beauty contestant, former Ford CEO Alan Mulally. Of course, the most talked-about possibility is Mitt Romney. Personally, I think Wisconsin weasel Reince Priebus was pushing Mittsie. I guess he figured that the administration needs at least one grown-up. However, curmudgeon and all-round piece of shit Newt Gingrich is against Mittsie (mostly because Mittsie is not Newtie), and the vile liar Kellyanne Conway hates his guts.
From CAMPAIGN 2012 at The Washington Post:
SAYREVILLE, N.J. — Since Hurricane Sandy devastated his beloved state, Chris Christie, the bombastic, shout-first-worry-later Republican, has gone soft on President Obama.
When a resident in this hard-hit town approached Christie on Wednesday to complain that FEMA had failed to help his neighborhood in the past, the governor assured him that his buddy in the Oval Office would make it right.
“Don’t you worry, pal,” said Christie […] “I will be with the president this afternoon.”
Hurricanes are scary!!

From Dawn Laguens (Executive Vice President, Planned Parenthood Action Fund) at THE HUFFINGTON POST:
Mitt Romney: It is time to withdraw your endorsement of Richard Mourdock.
We can’t go a week in this campaign without another out-of-touch politician showing his true colors on women’s health issues. First, Missouri Senate candidate Todd Akin said, “If it’s a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down.” Last week, Representative Joe Walsh said that abortion is unnecessary because the life of a mother is never at risk. Just yesterday, Indiana Senate candidate Richard Mourdock said pregnancy as a result of rape is “something that God intended to happen.”

…and that’s never a good thing.
From HUFF POST MEDIA:
Conservative columnist Peggy Noonan denounced Mitt Romney’s presidential campaign in a blistering blog post on Tuesday.
Noonan, who has been increasingly agitated over the GOP candidate’s missteps –notably saying she thought he “looks like Richard Nixon” — used the scandal over Romney’s comments about the “47 percent” to give him a talking-to.

I hate to tell you this. I mentioned this on the air some time ago. Romney, the best thing he can do is remember this election isn’t about him. He may as well be Elmer Fudd as far as we’re concerned. We’re voting against Obama. I don’t care who they put on the ticket, we’re voting against Obama.

Even with a screwed-up computer, you didn’t think I could pass up commenting on the Rethuglican National Convention, did you, kids? How hilarious was it that Clint Eastwood’s chair was less wooden that Mittsie?
From the Chicago Tribune:
LOS ANGELES (Reuters) – Months of careful planning for the Republican National Convention were hijacked by actor Clint Eastwood as traditional and social media erupted in a frenzy of scratched heads and parodies that experts said largely overshadowed presidential contender Mitt Romney’s moment in the spotlight.
Eastwood’s rambling, unscripted address at Thursday’s convention to an absent President Barack Obama in an empty chair inspired an instant satirical Twitter account, @InvisibleObama, that quickly went viral, demonstrating the power of social media to upset tightly scripted image control.
