Tuesday Twitter roundup

The RWNJ Twits (who think they swung the Tillis/Hagan race) are going after Boehner:

And when they fail, they'll blame it on Obama, of course.

And now I want a pizza. Thanks a lot, Craig. ;)

I've often wondered if Markeece actually exists, or if he's simply a sock-puppet construct. But all three of those people on the right look like cardboard cutouts. Which begs the question (if you're unstable like me) is there a place where cardboard cut-out people hang out with each other when they're not working? Talk about how many times the wind or a fan blew them over before one of stupid three-dimensional people figured out how to keep them standing?

Which, even if it is binding, will only result in big-government Republicans in the NCGA passing some law to unbind it.

What are Republicans doing to the Capitol building? Adding logos for their corporate sponsors, like a NASCAR car? Reinforcing the Dome so the intellectual vacuum won't cause it to collapse? Might as well do both while they're up there.

That could definitely be an Onion headline, which I'm sure is lost on the RWNJ crowd...

Just to give you a taste of some of the "education-minded" activists on the right:

I’ll admit, I didn’t know much about Dr. Joseph Warren until I read Rush Limbaugh’s latest book, Rush Revere and the American Revolution: Time-Travel Adventures With Exceptional Americans. If you are not familiar with this series, the books are historical fiction geared towards children to teach them about early American History. I have enjoyed reading these stories to young family members. These books can get children interested in reading, I find the audio versions help weak readers or children with learning disabilities to enjoy the books by reading along with the narrator, it really helps reading fluency.

Two weeks ago, I caught a show on the American Heroes Channel, it was the first (Revolution 101) in a series on the American Revolution and it featured Dr. Joseph Warren and other unsung heroes. This series is for older children and adults. You can find the series On Demand if you have Time Warner Cable.

Right, because there isn't already enough confusing information about the Founding Fathers and the birth of our nation out there, so we need to teach our kids Rush Fucking Limbaugh's fictional version of what happened. SMFH.

Aside from the blatantly obvious name, this new (Progressive?) think-tank bears watching. So I will watch. The think-tank. I really don't have anything more to say yet...

Another intrusive Facebook trying-to-sell-you-the-exact-opposite-of-what-you-want post:

Just to say what others are probably thinking: having a skull on your pro-gun t-shirt kinda dispels the whole "guns don't kill people" meme.

Charming, as usual. I almost hope he doesn't go to jail. Those poor convicts are dealing with enough as it is.

Pretty sure that's the broom closet...

Just stating this right up front: There better not be any (even remotely) discriminatory comments posted here in the weeks to come before the SEC meeting:

Janice Covington Allison, a transgender activist from Charlotte, announced on Monday that she’ll run for chair. She made headlines in 2012 as the first transgender delegate to the Democratic National Convention, and she’s also held leadership positions within the party’s LGBT caucus.

“I know that I will have great barriers to overcome, because I will be the first transgender woman in our country’s history to seek out a state’s Democratic Party chairmanship,” Allison said in a news release. “However, I think because our party is the party of the future, acceptance and diversity, I will be accepted, based on my ability to do the job.”

I'd like to think that, too.

On that hopeful note, here's your Onion:

That's where it should always start. If you can agree on Ranch-flavored Doritos, everything else will fall into place. :)



Think NC First

Another voice on top of all the other voices, saying more or less the same thing to an uninterested legislature and a disengaged electorate.

It will be interesting to see if any distinctions emerge between TNCF and the other usual suspects: Policy Watch, ISS, PoliticsNC, ProgressNC, etc., etc.

So many sandboxes, so little time.
