Even the CBC is abandoning Conyers
Got this one from over at Subrealism, which is a great somewhat right of center site run by a friend.
Anonymous is now threatening to expose Cruz’ visits to the ladies of the night. Not sure anyone in the Republican Party other than his wife and kids cares…But it is a thought.
Now…Who did Trump hire to do the video work?
Dang! Congress just started in January…
And already they are dropping like flies.
First 2 Democrats have decided to not run again – California Congresswoman Jane Harmon has stepped down to lead the Woodrow Wilson International Center, and Virginia US Senator Jim Webb has announced his intention not to seek re-election (setting up a probable match between Republican ex-senator George “Macacca” Allen and former Governor Tim Kaine). All this on the heels of the announcement by Senator Kent Conrad of North Dakota that he would not run again in 2012.
Of course there was the Senator Kay Baily Hutchison’s announcement that she would retire in 2012, which appears to be setting off a combination of the Second Alamo and the Civil War in Texas among Republicans. Then there is the first of the Republican newly elected Congressmen to step down, Congressman Chris Lee of New York, who is stepping down because of sending women bare chested pics of himself on Craigs List…
Of course, Independent Connecticut Senator Joe Lieberman had already announced his intention to retire in 2012.
Note to ex-Congressman Lee…
Did you not get the memo where they shut down the Bob Livingston Congressional Brothel?
Second – Did ex-Congressman Lee just set the World record for shortest tenure? I mean… didn’t he just take the oath about 3 weeks ago?
UPDATE 1 – Turns out the woman Lee sent the risque pictures to was a 34 year old black woman…
UPDATE 2 – To cheers around the world and especially Haiti, where more than 5,000 died as a result of his perfidity, Arizona Senator Jon Kyl has announced his intention to retire.
This is another one of those accusations which is difficult to tell if there is any validity. Certainly, some of the press isn’t above staging or manufacturing a story. Certainly, we have seen a number of bimbos seeking fame and fortune…
And there seems to be no shortage of men in high positions behaving badly or even criminally.
A Portland massage therapist gave local police a detailed statement last year alleging that former Vice President Al Gore groped her, kissed her and made unwanted sexual advances during a late-night massage session in October 2006 in a suite at the upscale Hotel Lucia.
The woman told investigators that she informed two friends and kept the clothes she wore that night, including her black pants with stains on them. But Portland police didn’t contact any of the woman’s friends, obtain the potential evidence or interview anyone at the hotel, records show.
“The case was not investigated any further because detectives concluded there was insufficient evidence to support the allegations,” the Portland Police Bureau said in a prepared statement Wednesday, responding to inquiries from all over the world after the National Enquirer broke the story on its website.
In her detailed Jan. 8, 2009, statement to a Portland sexual assault investigator, the woman said she was called to the hotel about 10:30 p.m. Oct. 24, 2006, to provide a massage for Gore, who was registered under the name “Mr. Stone.” Once inside his ninth-floor suite, she said he pushed her hand to his groin, fondled her buttocks and breasts, tongue-kissed her and threw her down on the bed as she tried to thwart his advances.

What’s up with the Republican Governors and Republican Governor wannabes in South Carolina?
Here we go again: A South Carolina lobbyist resigned from a rival political campaign yesterday and then became the second man to claim he had a tryst with Nikki Haley. Lobbyist Larry Marchant says he and Haley, who’s running for governor, had a “one night indiscretion” in a Salt Lake City hotel room in June 2008, but admitted he had no proof to back up his allegation. “You can’t have any evidence on a one night affair,” he says. “It never happened,” Haley responds, attributing the charges as a response to her surging popularity. “A couple weeks ago we started going double digits up in the polls and now we have had everything thrown at us.” Marchant said he felt he had to go public after old rumors about a liaison were rekindled by blogger Will Folks’ claims, and he started getting calls from a reporter. Part of the reason he came forward, he added, was Haley’s categorical denial last week of being unfaithful to her husband.
Must be something in the water down there in South Carolina – the ostensible Republican Governor to be seems to have caught a case of “Nekkid Hiking”, much like the outgoing Governor Mark Sanford!
A political blogger claimed today that he had an affair several years ago with a married Republican vying to become the state’s first female governor. Rep. Nikki Haley vehemently denied the allegation, made in a post on Will Folks’ blog that contained no proof. Haley called the claim a “disgraceful smear” planted to derail her campaign, which has gained steam from high-powered endorsements, including Sarah Palin and Jenny Sanford.
“I have been 100% faithful to my husband throughout our 13 years of marriage. This claim against me is categorically and totally false,” Haley, a 38-year-old mother of two, said in a statement. “It is quite simply South Carolina politics at its worst.” Folks is a political consultant who now runs FITSNews.com, a conservative site that features occasionally insightful commentary, thinly sourced stories of state political intrigue, and photos of women in bikinis.
Methinks the citizenry is revolting. In a Washington world of big bucks, and big donors – it’s nice to see some people know when to close their wallets…
Sen. John Ensign’s (R-Nev) re-election campaign took in just $50 in contributions, from one contributor, during the first quarter of 2010, according to FEC reports. The paltry take comes as more bad news for the scandal-tarred Nevada Republican, who would run for re-election in 2012.
Disclosure reports examined by TPMmuckraker show that Robert Donald, a Las Vegas retiree, was the sole contributor to the “Ensign for Senate” committee between January and March. Donald gave two separate $25 contributions.
Wait a minute – This is in Republican Utah! Shades of Senator Ensign, indeed.
Governor David Paterson is reputed to have a “Tiger Woods Problem” … Or possibly enemies willing to circulate a vicious rumor campaign. At least according to blog reports the NY Times will publish “at any minute” the salubrious details including drug use and the tried and true American Political pastime of Bimbo Boffing!
The American Political freak show continues…
Interesting viewpoint from foreign news.
He’s blind… Not dead.
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 »
Fresh from a dalliance with the Argentine Firecracker, it would seem Governor Mark Sanford was on safer ground appointing a “devout” evangelical conservative to the State Board of Education to make sure the kiddies receive a proper, morally upstanding education…
Which we would assume would include 7 or 8 of the 10 Commandments the Governor hasn’t been found to have broken… Yet.
Never mind the fact that the “devout” evangelical in question doesn’t have any children who actually attend the School System, because they have chosen to “home school” them. I mean, isn’t that sort of like a race car driver who never passed the driving test to get a license to drive on the highway?
Eternal right-wing paradoxes and hypocrisy aside, it appears that the new “devout” evangelical, home schooling conservative appointee as Chair of the South Carolina Education Board, and long term member of Gov Sanford’s staff, was using at least one of the three “r’s”…
Kristin Maguire, an Upstate evangelical and one of South Carolina’s most respected social conservatives, has been one of the governor’s closest education policy advisors for years. She’s also Sanford’s appointment to the S.C. Board of Education, which last year elected her its Chairwoman.
What else is she?
The prolific author of hardcore erotic fiction on the Internet, according to documents provided to the governor’s office earlier this summer and later obtained by FITS. Read the rest of this entry »
After the recent unfortunate demise of former NFL Quarterback Steve McNair, and the bimbo eruptions of Republican Governor of South Carolina Mark Sanford, and the revelation today that Republican Senator John Ensign’s family paid his mistress nearly $100,000…
You gotta ask the question…
Is there something black Playas can learn from Republican Playas?
I mean – they (Republican Playas) get caught…
Steve McNair had cut off his girlfriend who was stuck with making payments on the big Cadillac Escalade, which apparently was supposed to be a “gift”.
Damn – pretty nice retirement package for being a ho’.
Brothers, I mean it may be hard out there…
But it may be cheaper to pay her…
And safer too!
Sanford has said he would pay back an undisclosed amount for the nine-day trip to Brazil and Argentina for which taxpayers paid $12,000 last year. That includes $8,687 for Sanford’s plane ticket, and $453 in lodging. A spokeswoman for the Commerce Department said Friday that initially plans were made to only visit Brazil, but Sanford asked for extra meetings in Argentina.Sanford said the trip was legitimate but he put the agency in an awkward spot “based on what I did in terms of eating dinner down there.”
In case you didn’t know it – the recent spate of Republican legislators being caught with their pants down with (men and) women (thank goodness it’s not children this time) other than their wives…
Is Obama’s Fault!

What’s a poor, pitiful, out of power religious conservative to do?
Some folks turn to wine or drugs when depressed… Not conservatives!
For them, it’s bimbo-boffing and cheating on their spouses.
Wonder how long before someone comes up with a 12 Step Program for that?
Blame it on the Boogie… Indeed – Read the rest of this entry »
