The Natives Are Restless! Or…

…”Money Down The Rathole!”

OK, deeply in debt, The Party Of Cooked Books sent out a tweet: “The MN DFL Chairman bragged that “never before has our party been more powerful.” Fight back! #mngop #mnleg #stribpol”. That link in that tweet? Takes folks to the MnGOP’s website (screenshot is to the right), where they’re asking folks for some dough. Except, some folks are not really happy with the MnGOP!

Here’s my favorite comment (so far), by “Larry” —

“Until the conservatives grow some balls, I will not give any more money to put down the rathole!”

Say, Larry? It’s not the lack o’ ‘nads that’s the real problem with today’s MnGOP that makes donating to it a “rathole” – it’s their Cooked Books that makes it a rathole; it’s things like this!

And, that’s just one of many the MnGOP cut to the Feds to pay for their past misdeeds.

That’s just the past; there’s mighty good reason to think that future donations from The Party Faithful will go to paying for past misdeeds yet again!

Today’s MnGOP is indeed a rathole, and it’s for the old-fashioned reason: they EARNED it.

…You Still Can’t Now, And Tomorrow Won’t Be Any Different”

OK, that’s a screenshot of the MN GOP’s latest Federal Elections Commission (“FEC”) filing, signed just over a week ago (December 20th, 2011). Look at Line 10 – “Debts and Obligations Owed BY the Committee” – and the number, “$542,005.12.”

As reported to the FEC, just over a week ago.

What do we see reported today, here in the land of FEC Tony Sutton, the recently deposed Burrito Barron of the MN GOP?

Sources: State GOP debt is about $2 million
by Paul Demko and Briana Bierschbach
Published: December 29,2011

An internal review of the Republican Party of Minnesota’s finances has determined that the party is responsible for about $2 million in debts, according to two sources familiar with the findings. That’s nearly twice as much as previously thought.

According to these sources, party officials will report about $1.3 million in debt when they announce the findings of the probe at a press conference on Friday. But that figure does not include a number of debts that the party reportedly plans to contest, including roughly $450,000 in legal bills stemming from the 2010 gubernatorial recount. (more, here)

Why does anybody believe ANYTHING today’s GOP says??!?

And as I write this, the MN State GOP is conducting a “debate” to replace FEC Tony (deposed for financial mismangement) — and a leading “candidate” is a (I am NOT making this up) former ENRON lobbyist??!?

You Couldn’t Trust The GOP Then, You Still Can’t Now, And Tomorrow Won’t Be Any Different

Yep! It’s a T Shirt – supporting The Green Coalition of Gay Loggers For Jesus group, out of Bozeman, Montana!!!

My nephew gave it to me; the lad clearly knows where the ol’ TwoPutter stands; clearly knows his uncle’s sense o’ humor!

Here’s the story behind it: back in 2009, when all those freeloading Teabaggers were protesting and screaming (stuff) like “get your gov’t hands off my MediCare!”, some freeloading Teabaggers planned a protest/march down the street in downtown Bozeman, Montana. Except, being typical freeloading Teabaggers, they weren’t gonna cover the costs to the taxpayers for their protest of taxpayer expenditures run amok. Cute, eh? It’s even better – they weren’t even from Bozeman, but thought the taxapayers of Bozeman should cover their costs anyway. Well, a local Bozemanian (“Bozemanite”?) … well, here’s what John Leland thought, in his own words, in a story about his group’s march, in 2010:

“Last year the irony of the Tea Party insisting on shutting down Main Street was that the closure costs were estimated at $1,100 that they would have to pay staff to close the street down for a parade to protest taxation and government spending,” said Leland. “The irony was just too much. So we formed the Coalition and raised enough money not only to offset the closure costs, but also the majority of the Tea Party’s closure costs as well.” (Bozeman Daily Chronicle).

So in the spring of 2009, when Leland heard about Teabaggers planning a July 4th, 2009 protest that was going to cost the taxpayers some dough, he decided to mock, ridicule and scorn ‘em. But, he found out he’d have to have a “group” to get a permit – so he formed the afore-mentioned “Green Coalition Of Gay Loggers For Jesus” and proceeded to fundraise – one of the ways was by selling the tee shirt so proudly worn by yours truly, above. The group then held their parade immediately before the Teabaggers!

Now, what did said Teabaggers have to say in their defense?

Organizers of the Tea Party who have said they do not oppose Leland’s march do contend that it would set a dangerous precedent to require protestors to pay for a demonstration, since it is a constitutionally protected right. (DANIEL PERSON Chronicle Staff Writer)

Too funny!!! What are the Teabaggers saying about the Occupy Wall Street movement these days??!?

The problem with Teabaggers and today’s Greed Over Principles party is they cannot be shamed, for they have no shame.

But they CAN be mocked, ridiculed, and scorned.

And they SHOULD be. Frequently. Why?

You Couldn’t Trust Them Then, You Still Can’t Now, And Tomorrow Won’t Be Any Different. Although, this week might be interesting in the Legislature. Oh – and the deeply in debt MN GOP might elect a former Enron Lobbyist as their party chair on Friday!

So I’ll wear my shirt with pride!

The “Top Ten Reasons” for buying their shirt (well, for Christmas, anyway) is below, with links to their webpage and Facebook page – enjoy!

And stay tuned for coverage of this week’s shenanigans from the Greed Over Principles party!

From the U.S. Government’s official, Oval Office website:

George aWol Bush: “Well, first of all, Ken Lay is a supporter.(so far, true….but: that’s only nine words….) And I got to know Ken Lay when he was the head of the — what they call the Governor’s Business Council in Texas.(BIG-TIME WHOPPER!) He was a supporter of Ann Richards in my run in 1994.(ANOTHER BIG-TIME WHOPPER!!)And she had named him the head of the Governor’s Business Council. (kinda true…) And I decided to leave him in place, just for the sake of continuity.(BIG-TIME WHOPPER!!!) And that’s when I first got to know Ken, and worked with Ken, and he supported my candidacy.(BIG-TIME WHOPPER!!!!)This is — what anybody’s going to find, if — is that this administration will fully investigate issues such as the Enron bankruptcy, to make sure we can learn from the past, and make sure that workers are protected.”(ROFLMAO!!!!!)

Well, first let me say, that it’s hard (“it’s hard work, to work hard, to be hard at work, when you’re workin’ hard”) to find a Bushism in history, on today’s date, during the summer doldrums, such as today, in August. So, we’ll go with a January Bushism, for today’s date, August 7th.

Most other dates? No problemo; Dumbya’s got tons of ‘em. But during the “summer dumbdoldrums? Not so much. Let’s look at why!

And the “why” is, because this great nation, America, has never – NEVER – seen such a slacker as George aWol Bush, as President. There’s very few “Adventures In BushSpeak” during these weeks, these summer doldrums, because The Texas Fence Post Turtle usually is hiding from working somewhere other than The Oval Office during these summer months, like the bars around his ranch The Texas Slack White House.


The simple fact is, anyone that believes what Boy Blunder said about Kenny-Boy Lay, above, is a candidate to fall for a Florida Swamp Scandal potential investor in Florida “waterfront” real estate.

Oh – and they’re also liable to believe, just like many did, that the rolling California blackouts of 2004 was the fault of Democratic Party leadership – just as today’s republiCons would like you to believe today’s $4.00+ a gallon gas, is San Fran Nan’s fault. Or, that Obama thinks it can be solved with a tire-guage.

Yeah, “right”. They also happen to believe Richard Milhous was a “great American”, and Spiro T. wasn’t a crook. But, I digress. What it comes down to, is this:

Kenny-Boy,now that you’re dead, republiCons claim they hardly knew ya. But, they love to pizz on your grave, when it suits their political needs. Shoot, Boy Blunder And The Plunderers done pizzed on ya, while you were still alive. But, there’s no honor among Dumbya’s kind of thieves.

Which, of course, not only explains why reasonable people can no longer reasonably trust Republicans to tell the truth; it also explains why reasonable people reasonably wonder if the $4.00+ a gallon isn’t today’s Kennny-Boy gouging the American Consumer.

Oh – and it also explains why January 20th, 2009, will be The End Of An Error.
