". . . their number is negligible and they are stupid."

Ike Eisenhower described today's Republican Party perfectly:


Should any political party attempt to abolish social security, unemployment insurance and eliminate labor laws and farm programs, you would not hear of that party again in our political history. There is a tiny splinter group, of course, that believes that you can do these things. Among them are a few Texas oil millionaires, and an occasional politician or businessman from other areas. Their number is negligible and they are stupid.


-- Dwight Eisenhower, 1954

Mitt Romney creating jobs in China while destroying jobs in America

In the latest iteration of a tale that's been told too damn many times, we come to the Sensata plant in Freeport, Illinois, where 170 highly skilled workers who made electronic sensors for cars quite profitably are now watching their plant being dismantled and shipped to China, piece by piece.

Making it worse, Chinese workers were brought to the plant and the Americans who are losing their jobs are training the Chinese to do the jobs that the Chinese workers will take back to China, putting all 170 Americans out of work.

Sensata's majority owner? Bain Capital.

Workers and town officials offer an earful on greed, what capitalism is and is not meant to be about, the Bain business model, and "the big fairy tale" of Romney's talk of job creation.

Can you say "trailer trash?"

Last weekend, Sarah Palin traveled to Missouri to campaign for Tea Party Senate Candidate Sarah Steelman. Steelman fancies herself to be "Superman" -- her campaign hands out Superman T-shirts with "Steelman" replacing "Superman."

Here's a photo of Sarah Palin and Sarah Steelman on the platform together.

Reminds me of a couple of skank ho's at Randy's Redneck Bar and Truck Stop near Bull's Gap, Tennessee, picking up truck drivers.




I am SO-O-O-O-O-O-O happy this piece of trash is not Vice President of the USofA. About the only thing missing from this photo is a shot of Palin's tramp stamp.

It appears that Sarah finally has given up any pretense of being a serious politician and now has gone full-blown laughing stock.
