Mike Huckabee speaking at Iowa's Freedom Summit on Saturday.

DES MOINES, IOWA — Folksy former Arkansas governor and FAUX News commentator and current 2016 presidential potential Mike Huckabee dropped a bombshell during the closeout speech of Saturday's Republican party "Freedom Summit" in Iowa. Outlining the principles of his radical agenda for the country, Huckabee exhorted his Talibangelical legions everywhere to massacre law-enforcement officials in Washington and beyond.

GOP gotta lotta splainin' to do

by aarrgghh

remember november 2012? (and who doesn't!) back when the new buzzword in republican punditry was "outreach"? if the last two presidential elections taught them nothing else, conservatives learned that they need to channel the coming demographic tide in their direction or be swept by a horde of icky brown people into irrelevance. to that end, frustrated red-staters, sick of slogans and spin, think they can woo hard-to-get traditionally democratic voters with blunt and honest "straight talk" — that is, by "splainin'" to people (whom they'd prefer to keep ignoring) just how dense and gullible they are for not believing the grand old party has their better interests at heart. all it takes is the right message to penetrate the fog. i mean, what else could account for the inexplicable blindness of women and minorities to the grade-A 100% all-american awesomeness of the "right" wing?

the increasingly hardcore conservatives (i know, hard to believe) of wingnut watering hole free republic are famous for swamping online polls ("freeping") to tilt them in their favor (thereby illustrating the worthlessness of online polling, which can't control sampling). but freepers will point unironically to their "unskewed" polls as valid indicators of wingnut popularity. freeping polls is obviously about maintaining the wingnut bubble by nursing their election fraud narrative and making themselves feel better.

today freepers visited virginia.

hostage-taking 101: time is not on your side! -- especially when your confederates chase different goals, expect different ransoms, serve different masters and respond differently to stress. should the theatrics play out too long, hands at each others' throats may be your only reward ...

what a difference a week makes

freeperville, oct 4:

Lol. The plan is Obama caves.

What don’t you understand?

We are on the verge of an historic CONSERVATIVE victory.

What’s not to like?

(by St_Thomas_Aquinas)

oct 11:
Gomert on Beck’s show today, just before noon EST, saying that Boehner is now in a meeting with Obama, and is “giving up on 98-99% of Obamacare, so they [RINOs] can say that they got something from Obama.”

So yeah, the cave is in progress.

I guess the NBC/WSJ Rush is talking about spooked them.

As Beck says, it's time to defund the GOP. Tea Party candidates only. No Collaborators need apply.

"better guilty than impotent"

by aarrgghh

sometimes there is no third option to use, you can't get out of a situation without making yourself look bad. so your best option is basically to take the lesser of two evils.

the catch is that the options that gives you the least problems is also the ones that makes you look like you had no idea what you are doing. so instead you make yourself look guilty in an effort to keep up your reputation.

named from the film version of the sum of all fears, where the russian president takes responsibility for a military strike done by a general acting without orders so it doesn't seem like he was incompetent.

concerned "constitutional(ly-challenged) sheriffs and peace officers" from across the nation saddled up and congregated at a hotel in missouri for a two-day weekend palaver:

This will be your opportunity to sit spellbound as you hear from heroic sheriffs, police chiefs and constitutional scholars from across the country who are standing firm for our freedoms in the face of an overreaching, out of control federal government. Join with us in giving them support as they face increasing odds in the battle to serve the people and protect their rights.
one anticipated speaker was arizona sheriff joe arpaio's hand-picked "cold case posse lead investigator" and former car salesman mike zullo, who presented the shocking new findings of his ongoing two-year investigation into barack obama's "100% fraudulent" birth certificate.

thus armed with iron-clad proof of obama's (or whoever he is) crimes, patriotic citizens are demanding answers from the lawmakers that allowed this unprecedented constitutional crisis to happen (twice!). luckily, florida tea partiers were able to ask exactly that during a monday video conference with great latin hope marco rubio:

talk of 2016 so soon after november is really just election porn addiction but since the opposition's response to state of the union address is seen as a proving ground for presidential hopefuls (with two on deck this time as continued evidence of GOP disarray), i'm going to have to indulge in a little dirty talk ...

thanks to the reclisted diary "So That's What McCain Wanted" by susan from 29 (by way of huffpo's ryan grim), we know what john mccain really wanted from the benghazi hearings: a top-ranking committee seat to extend his expiring tenure, or in short, uninterrupted power and relevance in the next congress. here's the letter reid sent mccain:
