California GOP Convention: “Crazy People and Bigots”
Archive for GOP
This means two things.
1. It is time for the next two years for the California G.O.P. to STFU. You are irrelevant and no one gives a shit about your opinions. You might never matter again in California politics, and we don’t give a shit about that either.
2. It is time for the Democratic Party to put up or shut up. There is no longer any excuse. Solve our problems. Solve California’s problems. You have two years. You can start with legalizing marijuana, legalizing gay marraige, ending the death penalty and raising the state minimum wage to $10 or $12.00 an hour.
And fix what really needs fixing in the state’s tax structure- Prop. 13.
Oh and CLOSE SOME PRISONS.

You heard it first here at HighBoldtage.
Tomorrow, Iowa GOPpers, disgusted with the parade of clowns, and desperate to show their disgust, will vote to nominate Sarah Palin for president. Once they do then the whole country will understand what’s wrong with the GOP.
Let the fun begin!
The GOP is killing Christmas in Iowa this year!
via Business Week:
“Iowa residents flipping their TV channels this season aren’t finding a whole lot of Christmas cheer. A barrage of negative campaign ads is flooding the airwaves, with ghoulish images of Newt Gingrich and Nancy Pelosi crowding Santa and doomsday music drowning out holiday song.”
“The onslaught of scalding ads and messages landing in voters’ mailboxes, prompted in part by a Supreme Court decision last year that helped open the floodgates, has made the race for the 2012 GOP nomination among the most negative the state has ever seen. The campaign air war, slow to start at first, has intensified as the caucuses loom closer — leaving observers to puzzle over its recent dark turn.”

Trump to Moderate Republican DebateBy JEREMY W. PETERS
It’s officially a reality television Republican primary now.
Donald Trump is pairing up with Newsmax, the conservative magazine and news Web site, to moderate a presidential debate in Des Moines on Dec. 27.
update: Perry is slick but Bachmann is very credible.
uptdate: Newt is obviously playing for VP.
Crazy Herman proposes a whole new national sales tax, only 9 %!
update: Romney shallow, shadow, hollow…..fading
update: Santorum must be running for VP too, that is the only possible explanation for his presence….
update: Ron Paul, seems like a nice guy, as honest as any polititian can be, just honestly wrong on so many issues. The real Ron Paul question is since he will never get the GOP nod in a billion years does he have the balls to run a legit third party campaign?
update: Crazy Herman promotes “Chilean Model” does he mean we need a Pinochet?
update: Rick Perry wants the Feds to deploy 3,000 agents, predator drones to “secure the border?” Why can’t Texas take care of itself, Governor?
update: Newt jumps on the qwazy train with a proposal for a guest worker program and English as official language. Yee Haw!
Republicans should be careful what they wish for.
Government spending now is over 30% of GDP.
Shrink government spending by only 10% you immediately contract the entire economy by 3%. DOW down 10% right away. Unemployment (official) up to 13%.
Shrink governmnet spending by 30% (roughly enough to balance the budget) and you contract the economy by 10%. DOW down by 40-60%. Unemployment over 20%.
It may be true (at least open to honest debate) that the deficit is too large and the budget needs to be balanced. We can debate that. If so, it needs to be done gently, like slowly turning a supertanker around, not crashing it into an iceberg.
have a peaceful day,
