Another Connection Between Republicans and Foreign Terrorists

Now that the Republican Candidate Group of Dwarves has selected a new, new, new  blast-from-the-past leader in Neut Gingrich – it may be interesting to go back and see how some of these same Republicans of Neut’s era are connected to terrorists, dictators, and mass murderers. For instace Bob Barr, Neut’s “hit man” during the Clinton Impeachment scandal has been working for former Haitian Dictator “Baby Doc” Duvalier. Indeed, most of the nonexistent WMDs Saddam Hussein was supposed to have had – were made in the USA under the Raygun Administration and given to him…

So it shouldn’t be any surprise that there are even more nefarious connections between Republicans and terrorists.

Renegade US Group Wanted to Help Gadhafi—for $10M

Terrorism expert Neil Livingstone hopes to be Montana’s Republican nominee for governor next year—but voters may be turned off by his involvement in a bizarre scheme to help Moammar Gadhafi get out of Libya. Livingstone and the rest of his team—a veteran CIA officer, a Republican political operative convicted of scamming a baseball PAC, a Kansas City lawyer, and a Belgian engineer—offered to find Gadhafi an escape route and a way to keep some of his billions in return for a fee of at least $10 million, the New York Times reports.

“The idea was to find them an Arabic-speaking sanctuary and let them keep some money, in return for getting out,” according to Livingstone, who says the plan was aborted after the team failed to receive US government permission to receive funds from Libya. After the fall of the Gadhafi regime, however, a letter was found from the Belgian to Gadhafi offering the team’s lobbying services to win US government support for the dictator. Livingstone—described in the letter as the “recognized best American anti-terrorism expert”—says he hadn’t seen the letter before this week, and it greatly distorts the team’s intentions.

Can’t Wait to Order My New Pizza Plants Through the Burpees Catalogue!

Wow! Now that Pizza has officially been been classified by Congress as a Vegetable, it is only a matter of time before it is in all the seed catalogs!

I mean – if it is a veggie – you ought to be able to order your double pepperoni and cheese with anchovy and mushrooms and plant the seeds right out back. 45 days for a medium – 60 for a large!

One question though… Should I make space for it next to the zucchini or the basil plants?

How Pizza Became A Vegetable Through The Magic Of Influence-Peddling

On Tuesday, Congress decided that pizza is a vegetable. I have to imagine that this news instilled confusion in many Americans, as many Americans are (a) familiar with pizza, (b) familiar with vegetables and (c) sane.

But, to provide specifics that will in no way dispel your lingering thoughts that we are governed by morons but at least allow you some anthropological insight into how a group of morons who have been given permission to sit in a fancy room in Washington, D.C., and grunt at each other actually think, here is their thinking: Pizza is a vegetable for the purposes of determining what goes into public school lunches by virtue of the fact that pizza traditionally includes a schmear of tomato paste. (Botanically speaking, tomatoes are actually fruit, but we’re going to have to just let that slide.)

At any rate, you may still be wondering how it came to pass that Congress arrived at the conclusion that pizza could count as a serving of vegetables. Wonder no more! Congress was guided along this path by lobbyists. And lobbyists can do all sorts of things, by magic! (Except provide nutritious lunches for children.)

Another Christian Conservative Republican Pervert

Yet ANOTHER Christian Conservative Republican with a zipper problem. This one  in California, talking on tape about having sex with Lobbyists. Lobbyists who are “lobbying” him, and the Committee he chairs…

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Republican state Assemblyman Mike Duvall, a Christian conservative from Southern California, was caught on tape, bragging about his sexual escapades and extramarital affairs with two women. Duvall, who has preached against gay marriage and on behalf of “family values,” bragged about spanking one of the women while a microphone was on in the state capitol. “So, I am getting into spanking her,” he told a Republican colleague. “Yeah, I like it. I like spanking her. She goes, ‘I know you like spanking me.’ I said, ‘Yeah! Because you’re such a bad girl!” Duvall apparently thought a microphone in the state capitol building was turned off when it was actually on.

He then goes on to talk about having sex with a second lobbyist, Read the rest of this entry »
