The so-called Pastor of a 50 member cult in Floriduuuuh has had enough face time on the telly, and in the press.
Someone needs to tell this sumbitch to take a friggin long walk on a very short pier. I am sick to death of his fuckery.
When we last left our fearless SCOTUS nominee, she was patiently answering the inane questions offered up by the idiot republicans on the judicial committee.
Cornryn is now asking the same damn questions all his asshat cronies asked yesterday. Christ these guys are either deaf or have the IQ of a gnat. How many times will she have to answer the same damn questions from the reichwing nutjobs?
You too can watch and listen to these clueless fucking morons online here. This is the third day but actually only the second day of questioning..aka grilling her.
Below is the new logo for the Rethugs..how ya like it? 😉
There is video of the asshat Kyl grilling the Judge here on my video page. Check it out and then tell me that you aren’t wanting a cocktail, regardless of the fact that it is nowhere near happy-fucking-hour!
William Rivers Pitt has a good read up at TruthOut this morning. The title is the same as mine-Sotomayor Derangement Syndrome. He lists all the major rightwing nutters that are foaming at the mouth over Judge Sotomayor and her supposed racism. The list is quite long, as you are probably aware. His explanation of SDS:
They called it Bush Derangement Syndrome for eight years: the condition of being berserk with rage, hatred and fear over the acts and actions – nay, even the very existence – of George W. Bush and his administration.
Last week, the malady mutated into a whole new thing – Sotomayor Derangement Syndrome – and boy, but it’s a doozy. Ranting incoherence, brazen racism and suicidal ideation swept through the ranks of the far right after Judge Sotomayor was nominated to replace Justice Souter on the high court, symptoms that became worse by orders of magnitude as the week wore on. By the weekend, those suffering from Sotomayor Derangement Syndrome had not only struck the bottom of the barrel in their attempts to tear the Sotomayor nomination down, but had plowed right through the wood and burrowed deep into the slime and ooze beneath.
They, the nutters, ignore the SCOTUSblog indepth analysis of Judge Sotomayor’s race cases-all 97 of them. The most heinous of these fucktards is Newt Gingrich.
This bigoted wingnut actually is using this issue to raise money. He uses Martin Luther King Jr’s words in his email, from the TIME link:
The email opens with this quote, from Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.: “I have a dream: that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.”
Wait..there is more..
Of course, no one believes that any judge can be 100% impartial and unbiased in every situation. Judges are human beings, and will occasionally allow their personal biases to cloud their attempts at impartiality.
But this is VERY different — this judge is making it CLEAR that she thinks she SHOULD be biased and partial, based on her ethnicity and gender!
So Newtie is now bellowing his sexist rant as well. Surprised? Not really. Then he adds a small ps at the end:
We need YOUR help to take this fight to Capitol Hill. Please consider supporting Renewing American Leadership with a generous donation today. $25, $50, or $100 will dramatically help us stand strong for the Rule of Law in America!
PLEASE MAKE YOUR BEST

Public charity my brown ass. Racism and sexism coming from Newt’s piehole should offend everyone. It should piss off everyone that has two brain cells to rub together..unlike most of Newt’s fan base. William Pitt has this to say about Newt’s fundraising letter to his masses:
Civil war, suffrage, civil rights, un-American … wha? Oh, wait, that’s right, this was a fundraising letter, which means it doesn’t have to make sense. With this letter, Gingrich is seeking to raise money from the same subsegment of the GOP base that vacuums up change from between the couch cushions and sends it to the RNC whenever they get a direct mailer warning about evil immigrant hordes conspiring with Hillary Clinton to abort all Christian fetuses, or something to that effect. Gingrich will turn a nifty profit with this letter, even if it is all nickels, and use the funds to position himself further as the far-right’s darling candidate for the 2012 presidential election. Sense? Meh. There’s money to be made.
So Newt’s email is really about making money off Judge Sotomayor. Nice..and so expected from theses fuckwits. After all, Newt doesn’t have a real job..so how can we expect him to live comfortably without rallying his fellow wingnuts to his latest cause?
Notice that all the wingnuts shooting off their pieholes are not elected republicans. The elected republicans are pissing down both legs at the rhetoric being spewed by the likes of Beck, Gingrich, Liddy, Savage, and of course..Boss Limbaugh. Pitt’s final remarks on what this all means to the The Party Of No:
“After a week of escalating race and gender rhetoric from the right over the Sotomayor nomination, it’s now looking like some in the Republican Party – those concerned with actually getting elected – have become alarmed by the political damage the more extreme members of their party may be doing and are moving to rein in the vitriol,” reported Eric Kleefield of Talking Points Memo on Friday. “It’s the starkest example yet of an interesting division within the right, one that has been apparent for some time, but which the Sotomayor nomination has not only crystallized but accelerated: the right-wing bomb-throwers obsessed with ideological purity versus the right-wing pragmatists who want the party to actually win election again some day.”
By the end of last weekend, Sotomayor Derangement Syndrome had blown this rift within the GOP wide open. Establishment conservatives are now directly pitted against the vocal ideologues on their right flank and a GOP base that seems to be avidly listening to them. For a party already traumatized by arguments over immigration, two decisive routs in a row at the polls, and an absolute absence of any real leadership, the advent of this newest intra-party bloodbath is the worst possible situation.
Oh yes..stay tuned. These fuckwits are not even close to shutting the hell up. I hope this blows a huge hole in the republican party, big enough to drive a semi through, driving sane individuals away from them by the thousands. I hope they become marginalized enough that all they represent are the ignorant bigots in the south.
Because that is all they deserve. Keep talking Newtie..keep talking.
I am quite certain that the legions of Ron Paul followers aren’t liking the latest TNR piece about him, nor any of the blogosphere’s minions that are sounding the alarm about this man. I of course am one of those blogosphere minions that want it to be crystal clear;
Ron Paul is a Bigot and a Racist. That he would allow anyone to write and publish such disgusting diatribes under his name and masthead says volume’s about the man and his beliefs.
The reason I bring this up again so soon after my own post about the newsletters is that I read a very interesting post today authored by someone that actually did ghostwriting for newsletters like Paul’s and knows about which she speaks. The Orcinus is a blog that I have read in the past and I find it intelligently written, without an ounce of screaming nutjob attached…unlike moi who does have a bad habit of putting my personal pov into my rantings..and sometimes not enough fact. But back to Sara’s piece on Ron Paul’s newsletters..
The title of her post: Six Impossible Things Before Breakfast, was of course a play on Alice in Wonderland. It’s quite long and perhaps some folks do not want to take the time to digest it all..so let me give you some of the highlights:
Back in the day (which corresponds closely to the heyday of The Ron Paul Survival Report), newsletter clients retained my services as a writer under a work-for-hire contract. That means that — unlike other writing work, to which I retain all legal rights — the client ordered me to produce work carefully-tailored to their own needs, bought that work outright, owned all rights to it, and put their own names on it. (That’s what makes it ghosted. My name might have appeared in a masthead, or nowhere.) My job was to take their ideas, make them sound pretty, and organize the whole into a coherent, readable newsletter. Legally and ethically, it was just as though they’d produced the piece themselves.(emphasis mine)
If one of those clients stood up years later and insisted that no, they didn’t say that — “she put words in my mouth that I never knew about!” — I’d be very very quick to point out that they bought it…and they own it. When they put their names over my words, they claimed full responsibility for them. Once their check cleared, it was theirs. They can’t go around blaming me for any problems that might result, because they had full control and ownership from the get.
As Sara points out at the end of her article..Ron Paul can not have it both ways. He is either a man that approves of racism and bigotry that was written on his behalf and paid for by him..or he is just another bullshit politician “using “straight talk” to wow the crowds when it suits his purposes, but equally quick to tell lies to disassociate himself from decades of unsavory “straight talk” that now threatens to keep him off the national stage.“
Ronnie can not have it both ways..nope. He is either a racist or a liar..and neither do I find comforting or allowable on the political stage of United States of America. A parting shot from the TNR article that also shows more of Paul’s ass than he would like:
What’s more, Paul’s connections to extremism go beyond the newsletters. He has given extensive interviews to the magazine of the John Birch Society, and has frequently been a guest of Alex Jones, a radio host and perhaps the most famous conspiracy theorist in America. Jones–whose recent documentary, Endgame: Blueprint for Global Enslavement, details the plans of George Pataki, David Rockefeller, and Queen Beatrix of the Netherlands, among others, to exterminate most of humanity and develop themselves into “superhuman” computer hybrids able to “travel throughout the cosmos”–estimates that Paul has appeared on his radio program about 40 times over the past twelve years.
Ron Paul is a wingnut..plain and simply an extremist, racist wingnut. Alex Jones is a conspiracy guy that doesn’t bother me as much as some folks. As for Ron Paul..Anyone that supports him must accept the fact that their go-to guy hates people of color and won’t own up to it now that he is on the main political stage. Does that make his followers racists too? I hope not. I hope it just means they are uninformed as to what their candidate of choice actually stands for.
With all the candidates vying for TV time and places to tell their stories and platforms..this just BEGS for some attention. See this stage below..look at how many Republican Candidates showed up to the NAACP Republican Candidate Forum:
Tom Tancredo..thats it!!!
Tommy the Tool was the only Repube candidate to show up. He is the wingnut that blames illegal immigrants for every ailment in America and he hasn’t found a lie about them he doesn’t love and repeat a zillion times.
What is more glaringly obvious than how little the Republicans respect Black America and their biggest support group is the fact that the MSM buried this little tidbit. So did the Evening News shows.
If anyone hasn’t figured out by now how complicit the MSM is with all the bigotry and bullshit put out by the Republicans. .this picture is worth a million words.
All the Democratic candidates showed up to their NAACP Forum btw. The Republican’s excuse you might ask?
They were too busy.
