Teabaggers Just Cold Getting Vandalized?

Oh, you read that right, ladies and ladydudes.


Retired Lt. Col. Thomas James North of Jersey Court in Elizabethtown was arrested by Elizabethtown police the first week of March after, according to police, surveillance video recorded him pouring paint thinner on a pickup owned by a man who said his conservative political views have made him a target.

The truck’s owner, Kenneth Bunting, said attacks on his truck, which bears a tea party bumper sticker, began early this year.

There were a half-dozen “eggings” in February alone, Bunting said.


Bunting said he had no idea why vandals had targeted his pickup until he found a tea bag on the truck’s hood.

Bunting also said he’d never heard of North until he researched the defendant’s name on the Internet, where he said he found evidence that North’s political views differed from his own.

Labeling the incident as a hate crime, Bunting said he wants North prosecuted federally, but doubts that will happen.

Why does this awful man hate the teabaggers so badly?

And – what – teabaggers proclaiming to be victims of hate crimes???

Woah. Space-time continuum troubles, folks.

Louisville Teabaggers Have A Black Friend

You’ve gotta read this portion of the Louisville Teabagger Brigade’s latest email blast:


The group, headed by Frank Simon, is maybe the only organization in Kentucky that would brag about knowing a single non-white individual. An individual who loves Glenn Beck and who wrote a book called The BIG Black Lie no less.

It’s a shame Frank isn’t keen on protecting our white women… like Doug Hawkins of fearmongering fame.

Rand Paul Wants Underground Border Fence

Haha, so, funny story…

Rand Paul says we should build an underground electric border fence to keep the Mexicans out.

Republican Senatorial candidate Rand Paul wants to build a fence along the U.S.-Mexico border. It’s a rather ho-hum proposition in the larger context of conservative ideas — except that Paul wants that fence to be electric and he wants it built underground.


“I have not heard that,” the Texas Republican said. “Underground? What would happen? How would that work?”

That’s actually a good question and one that Paul’s campaign won’t answer. His website says only the following: “My plans include an underground electric fence, with helicopter stations to respond quickly to breaches of the border.” The details of how it would be built, what it would take to make it work and how much it would cost are left unanswered.

Moreover, aides to the Kentucky Republican have refused repeated attempts to explain the idea to the Huffington Post. On June 14, Paul’s former spokesman and current campaign manager, Jesse Benton, said he would call the following day to provide further details. He never did.

Or watch this fancy video:

Isn’t it interesting that Rand opposes a physical border fence because it reminds him of the Berlin Wall? Disagreeing with nearly all conservatives, believing their solution is similar to the Soviet Union’s solution.

Used car salesman/radio shizbird Leland Conway is blaming all of Rand Paul’s problems on the “leftist goon media.” Let him keep spinning. Interesting that the very first commenter on the story answered all of his questions. Also, did you know there’s a black guy living in the White House? [Hahaha]

No, Lexington’s council shouldn’t need legal assistance to obtain records regarding corruption and whistle blowing in the failed mayor’s administration. Since Jim Newberry and crew are lying and obfuscating, you can bet Auditor Crit Luallen’s final report could be one of the most damning Kentuckians have seen in a while. Just wait. [H-L]

Wednesday Morning Dept Of Git Yer Guns!!!

You know what’s awesome? There’s a gun show coming up in Louisville and Rand Paul will be there. But… the company putting the event on? Is running advertising promoting Rand Paul. No disclaimer. No language about who paid for the spot. Rand & crew will apparently never take campaign finance seriously. [Lacking Common Sense]

Rand Paul is now blaming the DNC for the controversy surrounding his comments that he said. HE chose to appear on television all those times. HE chose to write those letters to the editor. HE chose to continue “explaining” things. [Joe Arnold]

Wait for it – the Kentucky Equality Federation is once again trying to revise history. Jordan Palmer’s mother accused me of slander while impersonating another individual.

Roger Alford, the Associated Press stenographer, says Rand Paul is distancing himself from the Libertarian Party. Reality is, however, that the Libertarian Party in Kentucky publicly distanced itself from Paul a couple weeks ago. What is it with the AP these days? First, inaccurate stories about the Steve Henry scandal and now misleading headlines and stories about the U.S. Senate race. [HuffPo]

Former Metro Corrections employees are suing Louisville Metro Government. Mayor Jerry Abramson’s crew are directly involved. And before Jerry’s staff tries to dismiss everything? The plaintiff’s attorney is Andrew Horne, a guy doesn’t say or do anything he’s not 100% behind and extremely confident in. [Bennett Haeberle]

Will Rand Paul defend this soldier from oppressive federal “gun grabbers”? [Barefoot & Progressive]

Massey Energy and Don Blankenship are on the war path, trashing the MSHA in letters to governors. What is it with folks who never take responsibility and always want to blame the government for everything? [H-L]
