Oh say, did you see the BS from VP?

From  at The Mercury News:

INDIANAPOLIS — I wish I could have left too.

Reporters and columnists should be allowed to be sanctimonious about having to watch two bad NFL teams fail to execute for four quarters and an overtime.

…snip…

But Vice President Mike Pence has no problem with sanctimony. And it seems like his boss loved him leaving Sunday’s game early, too.

Maybe Wilbur just needs new glasses

From BUSINESS INSIDER:

Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross told CNBC on Monday that “there was not a single hint of a protester anywhere there during the whole time” he was in Saudi Arabia with President Donald Trump over the weekend.

The CNBC anchor said that could be because protesting isn’t allowed in Saudi Arabia.

Raisin’ Hell

From philly.com:

It lacks whiskers, tail, and claws, but bristles with ambition and bite:

The woolen, two-cat-ear headgear has fast become the feline symbol of feminine protest for thousands headed to the Women’s March on Washington on Saturday. Project leaders envision a sea of pink hats as the perfect way to tweak President-elect Donald Trump over his infamous remark about grabbing women by their . . . you know what.

Holiday Spin

From THINK PROGRESS:

As ThinkProgress reported Thursday, a Richmond, Virginia-area Holiday Inn abruptly canceled room and event ballroom reservations made by progressive groups that had planned to hold a “jobs rally” countering House Majority Leader Eric Cantor’s (R-VA) event at the same hotel Wednesday evening.

Infamous & Andy

From CROOKS AND LIARS:

Let’s see: There were so many union supporters that Sarah Palin was drowned out at this Madison rally yesterday, yet the AP just can’t estimate how many of the thousands of people who attended were supporting unions. Here’s a clue, guys: They’re not the ones with the misspelled signs:

Capitol Police estimated about 6,500 people converged on the building Saturday, but said it was impossible to tell how many were tea partyers and how many were labor supporters.

Tea party activists are a loose coalition of community groups largely made up of people with conservative views who believe government has grown too large.

Weak Tea

From POST POLITICS at the Washington Post:

A sparse crowd of tea party activists gathered beneath the U.S. Capitol on Thursday to urge Congress to cut more spending from the current federal budget and to cheer on some of their favorite politicians, including Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.), Mike Pence (R-Ind.) and Steve King (R-Iowa).

One organizer estimated that a couple of hundred protesters had gathered near the Robert A. Taft bell tower north of the Capitol at lunchtime Thursday. According to a media sign-in sheet, at least 50 of those present were journalists documenting the latest tea party rally in Washington.

Because there’s nothing more important for them to be covering than a handful of members of the Batshit Bachmann fan club?

Bloodsuckers

From The Miami Herald:

Call 2011 the year of the Republican governor.

Newly elected officials such as New Jersey’s Chris Christie, Florida’s Rick Scott and Wisconsin’s Scott Walker are exerting power in dramatic ways and jumping over each other for a share of the national spotlight.
