No more Texas governors for president

“Next time I tell you someone from Texas should not be president of the United States, please pay attention.” - Molly Ivins

The Huffington Post has obtained the transcript of a 2000 phone call made by pro-life Congressman Scott DesJarlais of Tennessee, in which he pressured his former mistress to have an abortion.

In the call DesJarlais asks his lover to terminate a pregnancy.

“You told me you’d have an abortion, and now we’re getting too far along without one,” he tells the woman who he met when she was a patient of his. 

They also discuss whether he will accompany her to the clinic for the aforementioned procedure.

“You told me you would have time to go with me and everything,” she says.

“I said, if I could, I would, didn’t I? And I will try,” he replies. “If I can [find] time, you’re saying you still will?”

Let me guess: he was a special exception because his abortion was the only moral abortion?

Oooh, let’s see how he’s voted on abortion issues in the past!

Yes on the Prenatal Nondiscrimination Act

Yes on barring Obamacare from covering abortions

Yes on prohibiting federal funding for abortion

Yes on defunding Planned Parenthood

What a sack of shit. And yes, she was his patient. Unbelievable.

You disgusting motherfucker. Words fail me…

I can always depend on Mittens to defend my right to hunt and shoot my family.


Mitt Romney and the horrible, no-good, very bad sentence structure. Yikes.


Just how different are the Hate Group known as the Family Research Council and the Humanist Group known as the Family Equality Council? Check out the last line of the chart.

The Onion again FTW:

"Hell, look at me: I’m a public relations nightmare," said Gingrich, adding that, for many years in the late ’90s and early 2000s, his name was basically a punch line. "Remember that whole thing with me divorcing my wife while she was still in the hospital recovering from cancer? For my campaign’s sake, I hope people have forgotten about that. But c’mon, it’s a pretty bleak political landscape when the presidential campaign of a known philanderer is actually getting off the ground."

Mark Kebler, campaign strategist and loyal aide to Gingrich for the past 20 years, strongly agreed that a Newt Gingrich presidential run “would be some really depressing shit, for sure.”

"Interestingly enough, it’s not just about Newt’s slim chances, polarizing character, irritating voice, or lack of charisma," Kebler said. "When you get right down to it, Newt Gingrich just kind of sucks. When I tell people I work for him, they give me this look, and I’m just like, ‘Yeah, yeah, believe me, I know.’"

Even winning the Republican nomination would be “a downer,” Gingrich said, since he would then have to select a running mate every bit as lame as he is, such as Tim Pawlenty or Michele Bachmann.
