Scooter Cohen and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day

Twitler’s loudmouth troubleshooter,
Thinks he’s smarter than the prosecutor,
He thought no one would log,
His side trip to Prague,
Now he’s changing his first name to Scooter.

O-High-O Family Values

From Plunderbund:

Back in late 2009, Ohio GOP Chairman Kevin DeWine put together a 10 point plan that he hoped would help restore the “conservative credibility” of the Republican party in Ohio.

“The Republican Party has lost its credibility,” wrote DeWine. “We were the party of ethics and morality until our elected officials became symbolic of scandal and corruption,” he said. And “voters did not reject our conservative ideology… they rejected our hypocrisy.”

The final step of his plan was to “Enforce a zero-tolerance policy for misconduct” […]

Jump ahead to this Spring.

In April, Robert Mecklenborg was arrested while driving in Indiana with a stripper in his car. A few days later he lied on his Ohio driver license application – claiming he didn’t have any outstanding, out-of-state violations. Kevin DeWine and John Kasich refused to call for Mecklenborg’s resignation.

Slaves to Stupidity

From THE IOWA INDEPENDENT:

Former New Mexico Gov. Gary Johnson issued a formal campaign statement regarding a 2012 social pledge unveiled by Bob Vander Plaats, labeling it as “offensive to the principles of liberty and freedom on which this country was founded.”

From Johnson’s statement:

Government should not be involved in the bedrooms of consenting adults. I have always been a strong advocate of liberty and freedom from unnecessary government intervention into our lives. The freedoms that our forefathers fought for in this country are sacred and must be preserved. The Republican Party cannot be sidetracked into discussing these morally judgmental issues — such a discussion is simply wrongheaded.

Conservative Christians Want Republicans to Stop Pampering David Vitter

From the Christian Post:

A conservative Christian group sent Louisiana Senator David Vitter, who in 2007 confessed to using the services of a high-profile prostitution ring, a letter Monday calling on him to follow former New York Rep. Anthony Weiner’s lead and resign.

…snip…

Several Democratic leaders, including House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, had called for Weiner’s resignation.

Unlike Weiner, Vitter, who admitted to “serious sin” in 2007 after his number was disclosed by the alleged prostitution ring “D.C. Madam,” never faced the same pressure from fellow Republicans to resign following his scandal.

Junior High Journalism

From Joe Coscarelli at Press Clips (blog) at the village VOICE:

As interest in Anthony Weiner’s penis and the dirty messages that brought it out to play begins to wane, we focus instead on the media coverage of Anthony Weiner, thereby proliferating Anthony Weiner coverage. Hm! It’s a conundrum, especially for those who go on television to proclaim, “The degree of piling on: the way it hijacks cable news, the way it hijacks the morning shows, the way it is all over the Internet says to me that we are more interested in covering salacious topics than matters of the economy, on matters of war and peace,” while simultaneously writing for a news organization doing just that. Oh, hello there — Howard Kurtz, is that you? Why yes, it is.

Take 2 Tablets, but Don’t Call Me in the Morning

(Reuters) – A former Alabama judge who gained attention for defying orders to take down a “Ten Commandments” monument from his courthouse said on Monday he was seriously considering running for president.

Roy Moore, a Republican who was removed from Alabama’s Supreme Court by a judicial ethics panel, said he was ready to join the 2012 race.

Because there aren’t enough clowns in the Rethuglican mix now.  By the way, Ol’ Roy may be a religious fanatic, but his campaign posters are rather unorthodox…

Randy Randy (Bed)Hopper

From the fdlreporter:

State Sen. Randy Hopper has hired a high profile national campaign manager to help him defend his seat against a recall effort and an allegation that Hopper no longer lives in the district he represents.The Fond du Lac Republican and seven other GOP state senators are the subjects of recall efforts following the tumult in Madison over Gov. Scott Walker’s budget repair bill and their votes to eliminate collective bargaining for state workers on issues other than pay.

…snip…

This week, Hopper’s wife said the senator had moved out of the couple’s Fond du Lac home. In a statement, Alysia Hopper said her estranged husband moved out of their Rienzi Road home in May 2010 and lives “mostly in Madison.”
