It was a veritable sideshow shooting gallery of Republican jerks today, which made it a perfect day for an extended visit from Armando
. There's one-time billionaire and now just mega-millionaire David Siegel and his crazy-ass, plagiarized email threatening to fire employees if Obama wins reelection. West Virginia Senate candidate John Raese, who just up and decided a river needed to be diverted and have a waterfall in it because he wanted one, but construction permits were terrorism, so screw 'em, just do it. Utah Representative Jason Chaffetz, whose registered no recognition at all when his empty-headed reliance on scripted talking points was lampooned before his very eyes by Soledad O'Brien on CNN. The new just-say-whatever strategy coming out of the Romney campaign. And finally, newly-crowned King of the Sleazebags, Tennessee Congressman and (soon-to-be-former) doctor Rep. Scott DesJarlais, revealed by his own tape recording to have knocked up one of his patients, then pressured her to have an abortion... before later running for office as a pro-life Teabagger.
Have you voted to nominate Kagro in the Morning in the 2012 Stitcher Awards yet? Have you voted today? Because you can vote to nominate the show once a day through October 19th, and if we make the cut, even more after that! So why not? And if you're feeling particularly bold, Tweet, Facebook, or whatever about your vote when you're done! Thanks for your support!
And if you haven't had the chance, how about helping support Daily Kos Radio by downloading the Stitcher app and entering the promo code DAILYKOS when you're asked "Tell us how you heard about Stitcher!" on the registration page? New Stitcher users who sign up with the code and then listen to any portion of any show are entered in a drawing for a $100 cash card, but better yet (from our perspective), Stitcher puts a dollar in the kitty for us. w00t! And don't forget to "favorite" the Kagro in the Morning show once you're all signed up!
