Tin Foil, Tea, & the GOP
Doomed Romney Camp is Doomed.
Mitt Romney has selected Rep. Paul Ryan of Wisconsin as his vice presidential running mate, introducing the seven-term congressman and architect of Republicans’ budget-cutting plans at a spirited rally on the deck of a battleship here Saturday morning. (ugh)
Okay! I am offended just because you are trying to loose, Mitt.

KING: We went down into the Library of Congress and we found a microfiche there of two newspapers in Hawaii each of which had published the birth of Barack Obama. It would have been awfully hard to fraudulently file the birth notice of Barack Obama being born in Hawaii and get that into our public libraries and that microfiche they keep of all the newspapers published. That doesn’t mean there aren’t some other explanations on how they might’ve announced that by telegram from Kenya. The list goes on. But drilling into that now, even if we could get a definitive answer and even if it turned out that Barack Obama was conclusively not born in America, I don’t think we could get that case sold between now and November.
Rep. King Goes Birther: Floats Theory That Obama’s Parents Telegrammed Fake Hawaii Birth Announcement | ThinkProgress
The GOP says: “We’ve got nothing else lets go with birtherism; it worked so well in the last election.”
Romney praises Poland’s economy, which features guaranteed health care for everyone and free college education.
Reason #74 why Romney had a bad trip.
Republicans invariably claim that Democrats want to raise your taxes, but Republicans want to give you a tax cut. Both claims are lies. In fact Obama and the Democrats have cut taxes for the 99% more than Bush ever did. The truth here is that Obama and the Democrats want to cut your taxes and raise taxes only on millionaires and billionaires. Conversely Republicans want to raise your taxes and cut them for millionaires and billionaires. The dirt is in the details…
In case you’ve heard about the Paul Ryan budget but didn’t have the details.
Fuck the republicans!!! Seriously!
If it is a Ryan plan it is likely to raise the deficit as well.
Gender Identity Disorder” is now a term of the past as the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, or DSM, will be replacing the term with “Gender Dysphoria,” according to the Associated Press. This change is a result of years of lobbying the American Psychiatric Association to change or remove the “mentally ill” characterization given to all who are transgender. Individuals may now be diagnosed with Gender Dysphoria, “a marked incongruence between one’s experienced/expressed gender and assigned gender.

That comment is too beautifully written to not reblog.

Hey look, it’s Leviticus - weren’t a bunch of people trying to tell me that the old testament doesn’t apply any more last week?
I just want to point out that it says “if a man lies with a man”; not if a “woman lies with a woman”. So in the eyes of this cherry picked passage only gay male sex would be wrong; why are they giving it to a lesbian?
Reading comprehension. They have none.

Mitt Romney Snubbed By UK Government As Cabinet Minister Tells HuffPost 'Our Heart Is With Obama'
Mitt Romney fails to resonate with senior Conservative Party figures, most of whom have a much closer connection to Barack Obama, a Cabinet minister has disclosed to The Huffington Post on Friday. Their comments will add to the sense that the presidential hopeful’s trip to London on the eve of the Olympics has been something of a PR disaster for the Republican party.

How Anti-Choice Are The Possible GOP Vice Presidential Picks? | ThinkProgress
TIM PAWLENTY: The former Minnesota governor signed a mandatory 24-hour delay for women seeking abortion care into law, and while serving in the state House, he wrote a bill to require women to be told medically inaccurate information about abortion services. But Pawlenty also approved a bill ensuring that women who have been sexually assaulted have access to emergency contraception — a measure similar to one Romney vetoed.
ROB PORTMAN: While serving in the House of Representatives and Senate, the current Ohio senator has voted on 115 bills related to abortion and reproductive rights — 114 of which were anti-choice. He repeatedly voted for the Federal Abortion Ban, which criminalizes some abortion services, and Portman co-sponsored a bill to effectively ban abortion coverage in state health insurance exchanges.
KELLY AYOTTE: The first-term New Hampshire senator has never cast a pro-choice vote. In 2003, Ayotte argued a case before the U.S. Supreme Court defending New Hampshire’s law requiring a girl who is a minor to notify a parent before she has an abortion.
MARCO RUBIO: The Florida senator has sponsored two bills that would gut the expansion of contraception coverage in the Affordable Care Act. He also voted to prevent Planned Parenthood from receiving federal funding, which would have denied health care and preventive services to millions of women.
BOBBY JINDAL: While serving in the House of Representatives, Jindal voted eight times to limit abortion access and other reproductive rights issues. And just last month, the current Louisiana governor signed three anti-choice bills into law.
JOHN THUNE: The senator from South Dakota co-sponsored a bill to allow hospitals to deny emergency abortion care, even when a woman’s life is in danger. And while serving in Congress, Thune has voted repeatedly to deny military women the right to use their own, private money for abortion care in military hospitals.
