The hypocrisy of the Bloomberg-funded Moms Demand Action & More Franzia (Thanks for that one Dana!) is shown clearly on twitter by its founder Shannon Watts.
She is currently bragging about being blocked by the NRA twitter account. She says that means the NRA is clearly scared of her, which means her group is totally winning ya’ll. Yet this woman has blocked so many, including hundreds of mothers, who are 2A supporters, that there is a hashtag! Scroll through the #ImBlockedByShannonWatts stream on twitter. Lo. It is amazing.
Of course, coming from a woman who had her ARMED security guards push and shove Dana Loesch (whose new book, Hands Off My Gun: Defeating the Plot to Disarm America, is one on my list to get and read ASAP), because Dana has been an ardent critic of Moms Demand, and wanted Shannon to clear up several lies she had been telling about Dana.
So, if the fact that the NRA blocked her means they are scared and she is winning, by her own logic, she must be completely terrified of anyone who voices a viewpoint that is different from her own.
Irony. Thy name is Shannon Watts.
Blah blah blah.
Dude, he promised to cure cancer. He also declared that no one would be allowed to drop out of high school anymore. He claims to support the troops, and swears that he will not allow Terrorists in foriegn countries to plot against us, that we will be strong! Then turns around and proclaims that he has closed gitmo. Sorry, but, closing Gitmo does not make America strong. He announced that he would repeal the Bush tax cuts on the top 2% of Americans, but give a tax break to the bottom 95% of Americans. The problem with those numbers it that the top 5% of American earners pay over 50% of the tax burden already! (source) There was more, but really, all I ever hear when he speaks is Charlie Brown’s Teacher, “Wah wah wah, wah wah wah wah.”
Best tweet of the night goes to Dana Loesch aka Mamalogues:
Who knew there were so many fancy ways to say “All your monies are belong to us?”
Bobby Jindal’s response was awesome. I love this quote,
Some in Washington say that government. will rescue us from economic storms raging all around us. Those of us who lived through Hurricane Katrina, we have our doubts.
Awesome! WTG Bobby! I say Palin/Jindal 2012!
Meanwhile, everytime Obama makes another speech, I can’t help but think of the quote from Revenge of the Sith:
“So this is how liberty dies, to thunderous applause.” Padme Amidala
OPSEC = Operational Security. OPSEC is why I can not disclose the time & date of my husband’s deployment to his own family, until after the event. OPSEC is what keeps our military safe. OPSEC is why Geraldo Rivera got kicked out of Iraq for a while back in 2003. It’s the reason the Army cracked down on bloggers. Keep that in mind as you read this:
A congressional trip to Iraq this weekend was supposed to be a secret.
But the cat’s out of the bag now, thanks to a member of the House Intelligence Committee who broke an embargo via Twitter.
A delegation led by House Minority Leader John A. Boehner , R-Ohio, arrived in Iraq earlier today, and because of Rep. Peter Hoekstra , R-Mich., the entire world — or at least Twitter.com readers—now know they’re there.

Seriously, someone who was the head of the Intelligence Committee should know better! Sir, I’m happy you had BB (BlackBerry) service in Iraq for the first time ever, but please, control yourself! You put the whole trip in jeopardy! I just hope Mr. Hoekstra‘s boneheadedness doesn’t screw up the use of twitter for the rest of the GOP. *sigh*
