  •  And let us hope the TP ticket in this year's (0+ / 0-)

    election gets a rough cut shaft up the ass. It is all about turn out, we screwed up big time in 2009 and got a smiling governor ultrasound and very possible to be felon:

    A wealthy political donor has told federal prosecutors that he believed that Virginia Gov. Robert F. McDonnell was helping his company get state research funding at the same time the executive was providing McDonnell’s family with gifts and money, according to two people familiar with the donor’s account.

    E-mails obtained through the Freedom of Information Act also show that researchers and scientists working with the company thought that McDonnell (R) and his wife, Maureen, wanted the company to receive the funding from the state’s tobacco commission. The researchers were in communication with Star Scientific Inc. officials during the same months that Chief Executive Jonnie R. Williams Sr. said he believed McDonnell was helping, the e-mails show.

    In any case, the two most probable takes are that we elected a swindler (the donor thought he was getting bribe results) or a crook (he was getting bribe results).

    So, we can hope our side will turn out all over Virginia to send a very rough, sharpened tree branch up the rear end of the political career of the other top official engaged in this corruption scam—and that is among of the least of his crap—as well as those of a slate of total right wing nuts.

    The only foes that threaten America are the enemies at home, and those are ignorance, superstition, and incompetence. [Elbert Hubbard]
