Things that deserve separate posts, but won’t get it, for now:
- He’s still trying to out liberal a real liberal, and it will not work: Scott Brown Says He Supports Obama’s Illegal “Recess” Appointment of Richard Cordray… and Scott Brown Accuses Gingrich Of ‘Pandering To The Right-Wing Extreme’. He has forgotten who elected him.
MistakenlyWho Ran Away From Home Fakes Being an Illegal Alien so She Can Deportedget a Free Airline Ticket To Colombia.
- Case which supposedly was going to take down Scott Walker because it involved illegal campaign activities turns out to be a larceny by state employees and the investigation was requested by Walker. Another lunatic anti-Walker meme debunked.
- And speaking of Wisconsin, a judge ordered the GAB to check for duplicate names on recall petitions. My prior post, Who cares about duplicate signatures in Wisconsin Recall? (that post was tweeted over 1500 times, maybe I’ll do a separate post after all).
- More to follow.
- Did Typo Give Romney Extra Votes in Iowa? “KCCI-TV reports that a typographical error may have awarded Mitt Romney an 20 additional votes in the Iowa caucus final vote tally.”
- Boston Globe endorses Huntsman.
- Tell me more about Mia B. Love.

The action of Scott Brown is just another reason not to elect a politician from an extreme blue state as president. We have no idea what their core beliefs are. Actually, they seem to be subject to change at any given moment.
I keep getting requests for money from Scott Brown, having contributed to him back when it seemed to make sense. Not this time.
I know I’m on the other side of the world now…but is this story getting any traction in the blogosphere?
Not that I think the White House would break any laws regarding classified material so a movie can be made and released just weeks before the election….
Today’s Fortune Cookie:
“Hollywood nominates President for Oscar for his role in Hurt Locker”
Gah!!!!! I clicked on your link and got Lawrence O’Donnell. Sorry, I didn’t stay a non second. O’Donnell is sickening.
When are the Republicans in Congress going to get some balls. I want to read a line like, ‘Today the House passed a bill of impeachment for Attorney General Eric Holder whose gunning running operation for the Mexican drug cartels has resulted in the deaths of hundreds of Mexicans and at least one US Border Patrolman.’
The last group of Republicans with a set of brass, would be Charleston Heston, Ronald Reagen, John Wayne…and they’ve all been called Home.
Today’s republicans would openly embrace Neville Chamberlain.

Scott Brown will lose, and I’m somewhat happy about it.
Deported a fingerprinted 14-year-old African-American who speaks no Spanish, who when arrested gave a name that happened to match a 22-year-old Colombian woman. What outstanding incompetence.
Brown is not the only “Republican” to support Obama’s violation of the Constitution. John McCain has endorsed it too. And the deafening silence from the “leadership” of the Institutional Republicans is speaking volumes. They will not oppose Obama on anything, and now we know it and Obama knows it. This was a test case, and the Institutional Republicans just failed. We have been betrayed yet again. The next violation by Obama is going to be a doozey.
The combination of Institutional timidity and Romney being Romney is going to drag down the entire ticket at all levels. Patriots will stay until November 6. On November 7, it is time to look to forming a Patriot Party where conservatives are not the red-haired stepchildren.
I supported Scott Brown with money the first time. I decided no more, and then I saw an article about how we should consider the alternative. Now I see more of this news, and I say “Whatever”. When are Republicans going to learn that extremes on the left drag them to the left: trying to compromise just leads to forsaking principles. Brown won by having an incompetent opponent and pretending to be conservative. I can give my money to somebody else.
Apparently, Dodd-Frank was written such that it require the bureau director be confirm prior to it being able to start any enforcement activities.
Under Section 1066 of the Dodd-Frank Act, after the DTD and before the confirmation of a Director, the Secretary (and his designee) can continue to exercise authorities transferred from other federal agencies, such as the authority to: (1) adopt regulations under the Truth in Lending Act (TILA) and other enumerated federal consumer financial laws; and (2) examine large depository institutions for consumer compliance. However, the Secretary and his designee cannot perform new functions during this period. For example, the report states that the Secretary (and any designee) may not during this period adopt rules prohibiting unfair, deceptive, or abusive acts or practices in connection with consumer financial products and services, or supervise or examine nondepository institutions.
a 21 vote undercount cancelled out Santorum’s 20 vote undercount so Mitt ends up winning by 9 votes.
