Lawn Jockey of the Year Award

Without further ado, the Lawn Jockey of the Year Award for 2010 is Alan West. Following this interview West appaeared on Faux News –

Speaking on “Fox News Sunday”, he said more needs to be done to set the stage for private sector job growth and scale back government intervention. West suggested the latest vote to extend long-term unemployment benefits for another 13 months was just “creating more victims and making people dependent on the government”.

Here’s your Award, Alan:

Good… Bad… Lots of Ugly… And the Bottom Line

The losses experienced by the Democrats this election sit squarely on the shoulders of the Obama Administration and their refusal to confront the whack job right in this country with the powers at their disposal.

The reason for the loss – is that handed the reigns of government...

The Democrats refused to govern.

It is really as simple as that. The vote last night was not FOR Republicans…

It was against a Democratic Congress and Administration which consistently failed to make their point…

Which consistently dithered in their moronic search for “bipartisanship”…

Which allowed the media and airwaves to be controlled by the opposition…

Which didn’t clean house when provided the broom, the mop, and vacuum cleaner to get the job done.

Hate to say it – but if Hillary had been elected, she would not have lost this one.

ABC “News” Trolls for Troglodytes With Brietbart

ABC “News” jumps in the toilet with Faux News with the scumbag prade as part of their “election coverage”, adding Andrew Brietbart the Pimp behind the Pimp. and sleaze behind the Shirley Sherrod smear…

Breitbart says ABC invited him to appear on broadcast television

Andrew Breitbart has released what he says is an email contradicting ABC News’ assertion that the network never planned to include him in its televised Election Night coverage.

On Friday, Breitbart’s Big Journalism website reported that Breitbart would be “featured” on ABC’s “election night coverage.” According to Big Journalism, Breitbart would be “bringing analysis live from Arizona.”

Several hours later, ABC spokesman David Ford confirmed to Media Matters that Breitbart “will be one of many voices on our air.”

After receiving heavy criticism, ABC released a statement Saturday purporting to “explain what Mr. Breitbart’s role has always been as one of our guests at our digital town hall event” [emphasis added]. According to the ABC statement, “Breitbart will not be a part of the ABC News broadcast coverage” and will instead “engage with a live, studio audience that will be closely following the election results and participating in an online-only discussion and debate.”

But on Sunday night, Breitbart insisted that wasn’t the original deal. Breitbart wrote, “I can state with absolute certainty that the verbal pitch to me to participate was punctuated by the opportunity to appear as part of ABC News’ broadcast television for the night. I was also aware that the majority of my participation — seven long hours — would be online.”

Similarly, Breitbart told The Daily Caller that “they originally pitched to me that I was going to do a hybrid of both online and broadcast.”

Why November May Not Be As Profitable as Republicans Expect

Polls have failed to predict tectonic shifts before – such as in 1994.

Democrats need to put an early order in for a Rose delivery, not for any Democrat having figured out how to win an election…

But to Mr Beck, Mrs. Palin and the Faux News Tea Party for losing one for the Republicans.

I tend to agree with this analyst – what the fruitcake brigade has done is to stir up some pretty deep seated anger, not only among black and Hispanic folks…

But among moderate white folks. And in the case of Moderate white folks, it isn’t the political positions of the Republican Tea Baggers that’s driving that silent anger – it’s the “in your face” way they have attacked anyone with different ideas. Payback is hell.

Here is the issue though – to seal the deal, Democrats are going to have to convince their own base they are willing to govern. No more of this mincing around begging on bended knee for that one Republican vote. The issue isn’t Afghanistan. The issue is Democrats, despite some big successes – are perceived as having pissed away their mandate. The one thing Republicans do well is the mechanics of governing. Unfortunately they combine that with a disastrous, dysfunctional political platform and belief set.

Illegal Alien? Illegal Alien? So That's Why She Didn't Have a Social Security Number?

Democrats will hold the House and Senate

Maybe I’m wrong.

In fact, maybe I’m really, really wrong, which is the reaction I hear when I dare even to broach this notion to commentators and political strategists in both parties. So let me state it plainly: I now think the Democrats will hold the Congress—yes, the House as well as the Senate—and turn back high profile Republican challengers in California and elsewhere.

The GOP strategy of “no” worked to slow the recovery, stoke fears about fictions like death panels in the health reform bill, and persuade voters to strike out in frustration against Democrats. The trend peaked in August, a month Democrats probably wish they could abolish given the dog days they suffered then, in 2009 as well as 2010.

But with the onset of autumn, there are signs that the Republican tide is receding. Karl Rove would understand – the same dynamic was the key to George W. Bush’s narrow re-election in 2004, when the GOP base showed up to vote in numbers that defied the polling models. This time, it’s the Democratic base that’s stirring—and finally engaging—and the survey research is registering the shift. In the new NBC/Wall Street Journal poll, the Republican advantage in the ballot for Congress has declined from nine points to three. The explanation: African-Americans and Hispanics are re-entering the likely electorate.

California is a prime example. The GOP covets a comeback in the state that produced Nixon and Reagan before turning a deep navy blue after the party scapegoated immigrants and scorned Hispanics. But Democrat Jerry Brown has pulled ahead of eBay mogul Meg Whitman, who’s bid $119 million and counting for the governorship (and yes, her paid consultants are counting fast and furious). Whitman never managed to open up a real lead even when she had California’s expensive airwaves to herself; now, after immigrant-baiting during the primary, she can’t afford for the electorate to expand.

Republican Victory in 2010? I Don’t Think So!

Republicans are hyped about the typical minority party gaining seats in a mid-term election. They believe if they shout and squeal enough, the base will get energized enough to gain some seats…

Two problems with that:

That extremism thing, the most recent evidence of which was threatening letters sent to 30 Governors

And the loss of Mainstream Republicans.

What we got here is a major meltdown.

Off the Reservation: Republican Party (1856 – 2010)

Republicans are shouting and spitting like a bunch of fucking hyenas as they clamor for face time in the media. They’re filling our inboxes, vandalizing our social networking profiles and polluting the airwaves with venomous messages rebuking the Obama Administration over health care. HEALTH CARE! My fellow Republicans are tearing this nation apart over providing medical care for those less fortunate. Not bank bailouts, war, or wasteful pork spending— Health care. Really?

The behavior among elected Republicans and the dimwitted TV pundits who are whipping America into an absolute frenzy is the worst thing about this bill and has led me to question my long-standing affiliation with the Republican Party. For a moment, I thought it was me; that maybe I had changed and lost touch with Republicanism. So, in seeking to refresh my recollection of what this party stands for, I logged onto the GOP home page.

What I found was as pathetic as it was cartoonish. A complete embarrassment. The site opens to a fiery red screen with Nancy Pelosi, fists and teeth clenched in a fit of rage against a backdrop of flames, with the words “Fire Pelosi” in bold letters emblazoned on the screen. This buffoonery doesn’t torch Nancy Pelosi—it’s Theodore Roosevelt, Dwight D. Eisenhower and Abraham Lincoln who are torched by the flames of dissent and hatred that now embody this once-great party.

Going deeper in the site only serves to highlight the confusion within the GOP. It lists the accomplishments of the Republican Party since its inception and its own core values of today. It proudly claims responsibility for freeing the slaves, establishing Howard University and outlawing the Ku Klux Klan. It touts Republican leadership in writing the 19th Amendment, passing two civil rights acts and ending racial segregation in Little Rock. The list spans two centuries of achievements such as these and others that today seem more in alignment with the Democratic Party, like establishing Yellowstone National Park, building the federal highway system and authoring welfare reform.

This is the party I belong to.

But the current “platform”—if you can call it that—lists only six ideals. The power of the individual, voluntary giving, limited government, low taxes, less regulation and national strength. That’s what it says, but what it practices is hate, because hate sells when the chips are down. Well, here’s the newsflash: The strong Republican individual who enjoyed low taxes, limited government and less regulation didn’t voluntarily give a hand to the 32 million people under eight years of Bush Jr., four under Bush Sr. and eight under Reagan. And the eight under Clinton? We Republicans killed health care then too. So, no. The “voluntary giving” portion of the agenda hasn’t worked.

This bill is what we get for not doing something sooner. Now the Republican Party is calling for true health care reform and vowing to still kill this bill? NOW? Too bad, so sad. Too little, too late. Everything that is wrong with this bill is the fault of every loser in office with an (R) next to his or her name.

From the realm of beyond ridiculous comes the conservative movement. The growing number of so-called “Tea Party” activists are hunting their own, outing those they call Republicans In Name Only, or “RINOs.” They have taken their vituperative agenda to the streets, hurling racial epithets at democratic lawmakers and preaching angry messages to Fox’s ravenous cameras. Television ratings and voter ire are feeding off one another and creating a vortex of hatred that has gone viral and beyond.

There is nothing grand about this old party that preys only on the enmity of the populous. There is nothing admirable or principled about fear mongering. Where are the inspired solutions that made this party great?

I’m calling it. I hereby officially pronounce the Republican Party dead. The GOP died suddenly on March 23, 2010 from a diseased mind and heart. It was 154 years old. The son of Ronald Reagan, grandson of Theodore Roosevelt and great-grandson of Abraham Lincoln is survived only by bastard stepchildren who have squandered the family fortune and sullied its good name.

A plague on all of your tents, I say. I renounce my allegiance to those who cloak themselves in the shroud of Republicanism without understanding what it means to be so. I stand firmly by the glorious list of accomplishments from which these whores have divorced themselves and await the day a new breed of Republicans rediscovers the true meaning behind the core values of this party. Until then you have lost my vote of confidence and, more importantly, my vote. When you do return to your collective senses and stand for something other than hatred and dissent, I will be there, because a real elephant never forgets.

Four of 32 US Rhodes Scholars for 2010 Are African American

Four African-Americans among Rhodes Scholars

The Graduate, a print by Ernie Barnes. Ernie Barnes Prints may be purchased at It's a Black Thang.

Four African-American undergraduates have won Rhodes Scholarships and will travel to Oxford University for study, according to a BlackAmericaWeb.com report.

Named after South African mining magnate Cecil John Rhodes, the prestigious $50,000 scholarships were established in 1903 and are awarded to students who often become leaders in their fields.

This year’s African-American Rhodes scholars are Andre McCall from Truman State University, Ugwechi Amada from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Darryl Finkton and Jean Junior from Harvard.

The four will be among 32 international Rhodes Scholars who will travel to Oxford next fall. Also attending the famed English school will be Black students from Africa and the Caribbean and students of color from India, New Zealand, Australia, Canada and Germany.

BET Founder Sheila Johnson Mocks Va Democrat’s Speech Impediment

This is freaking unbelievable! It demonstrates exactly how low a Kneegrow can go hanging around with Republicans.

Ms. Johnson is backing Republican Bob McDonnell over Democrat Creigh Deeds in the 2010 Virginia Governor’s race. With her $100 million+ resort in Middleberg, Virginia teetering on the edge of collapse, there is no question a deal has been struck…

But this is low…

BET Founder Mocks Deeds’ Stuttering At Fundraiser

BOB LEWIS, AP Political Writer
RICHMOND, Va. (AP) ― The billionaire co-founder of the Black Entertainment Television mocked Democrat Creigh Deeds’ occasional stuttering at a fundraiser she held for Deeds’ Republican opponent in the governor’s race, Bob McDonnell.

In a YouTube viceo, Sheila Johnson says Virginia needs a governor “who can really communicate, and Bob McDonnell can communicate.”

Then she tells a small crowd of wealthy donors, “The other people I talk to, especially his op-op-op-o-opponent, di-di-did this all through my interview with him.”

After muted laughter among the guests, she adds, “He could not articulate what needed to be done.”

There was no immediate response from Johnson, McDonnell’s campaign or Deeds.
