In that, the GOP refuses to listen to the Smart ones
Over the weekend, some of the smartest Smart Girls I know had a summit in Indianapolis, which, one would think, would be an ideal place for the DC Republican party (seemingly desperate to demonstrate the the so-called “WAR ON WOMEN” is a Democrat-conceived hoax that they themselves are guilty of perpetuating) would want to not only attend, but participate in.
Hell no. They didn’t go:
I understand that everyone is busy right now. I also understand that the Hill Republicans have sort of a love-hate relationship with us grassroots warriors. However, I also understand that the Republicans have a woman problem. Whether that is true or not (and I don’t believe it is) the media has won the “war on women” battle and successfully painted Republicans as having a perceived “women” problem. Well if perception is reality you’re screwed, GOP! Time for damage control. What better way to start than addressing a group of grassroots conservative and libertarian women from across the nation as they all sit in one room?
Excuse me, GOP head honchos but these are the very people you are going to be hitting up for money and time in a few months. You are going to expect these women to walk the precincts for you and (wo)man the call centers and stuff the envelopes. You’re going to ask them for $5, $10, just $15 dollars to help so and so defeat the liberal machine! You’re going to expect us to be out there combatting this ridiculous “war on women” meme when it comes up during the election cycle. You’re going to point proudly to organizations like Smart Girl as proof that Republicans have their fingers on the pulse of women’s issues. In other words…YOU’LL NEED US. Yet you could not find the time or decency to come where we were and remind us that you know we’re there and we’re working for victory.
In other words, the GOP establishment types seem to believe in a “shut up, send us money, and we’ll handle this messy political stuff for you.”
Where the local Indiana GOP did make some gestures, the DC swamp sent nobody
The Indiana Republicans were quite gracious, sending a video message from Gov.Mike Pence and bringing in Lt.Gov. Sue Ellspermann to officially open the Summit weekend. Smart Girl founders Stacy Mott and Teri Christoph assert they sent numerous invitations to nearly every GOP heavyweight on the Hill, including RNC representatives. Not one response. Not one representative took the time to even send a prerecorded message.
Next will come the mass mailers with the cards attached for donations.
Send them back blank, and write SGP13 on them. Then give locally, forget the RNC. Despite the party of Bob (Feelya) Filner (D), and Anthony (Whip It Out) Weiner (D), somehow it’s the Republicans who have an image problem, and will continue to without making an effort to reach out to the people who can make or break them for more than just donations.

This is Colorado, but it could be anywhere (“Pass the bill to see what’s in it“?):
This would be the same Colorado Democrat, Evie Hudak, who *bungled stats and dissed a rape victim.
So yeah, don’t read the pesky words, just flip a coin. Head it passes, tails it doesn’t. And we the people who elected these idiots lose.
*She pulled them from her thinking region, the one she sits on.
UPDATE: Twitchy has more reaction from the Twitter world.
UPDATE II: OMG, it’s only a billion dollars…
While lawmakers debated a bill that would overhaul the way education is funded in Colorado and result in $1 billion in new taxes, state Sen. Evie Hudak (D-Westmister) suggested that they “finish it up real fast in two minutes” without thoroughly discussing a proposed amendment. She also told Sen. Owen Hill (R-Colorado Springs) to “flip a coin” when he asked how he could possibly vote on a major amendment he hadn’t read.
“I’m going to take a quick straw poll,” Hudak said. “How many want to finish it up real fast in two minutes, raise your hand.”
“How can I vote on it if we can’t have a little more discussion on it,” Hill replied.
“Take your best shot,” Hudak shot back.
When the roll was called, Hill again stated that he couldn’t vote on something that the legislature hadn’t read and discussed more thoroughly.
“Here’s a coin you can flip,” Hudak said.
“I didn’t knock on 20,000 doors to flip a coin,” Hill added.
“You’ll pass for now, here’s a coin if you want to flip it,” she said condescendingly.
“Unbelievable,” a stunned Hill muttered.
“The 2012 cycle is Senator Hudak’s last election, as she is term limited and will not have to stand for reelection. She is certainly acting like it,” Revealing Politics notes.
With all the amazing people Time could’ve picked, they proved their continuing irrelevance by picking their socialist hero, B. Hussein Obama:
We are in the midst of historic cultural and demographic changes, and Barack Obama is both the symbol and in some ways the architect of this new America. In 2012, he found and forged a new majority, turned weakness into opportunity and sought, amid great adversity, to create a more perfect union.
Seriously? His “new majority” is a dubious collection of leftists and low-information voters; his “new America” a collapsing star which is about to become a financial black hole. This is their “more perfect union”?
Rush called it:
We’ve never had a more radical, we’ve never had a more partisan politician in the White House than Obama. It’s only a low-information voter (we used to have call ‘em “morons”) that could think he’s outside of politics, but there you have it. There you have it. TIME Magazine: We chose Obama because he’s a symbol of the new, low-information America. That’s what Stengel meant when he talked about Obama being “the beneficiary and the author of a kind of new America, a new demographic, a new cultural America that he is now the symbol of.”
I wonder what these elite Democrats really think about that. So this guy’s Man of the Year because idiots love him? Because believe me, they think low-information voters are idiots. I guarantee you. They’ll be glad to take their votes. The new stupid America? That should have been Man of the Year. Person of the Year: Stupid people. The low-information voter should have been the Person of the Year.
Here’s who the editors at Time should’ve picked – the teacher who gave her life to save her children:
At the exact point a conservative black Republican becomes a US Senator
South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley appointed Republican Representative Tim Scott to fill the seat being vacated by the retirement of Sen. Jim DeMint on Monday:
“It is with great pleasure that I am announcing our next U.S. senator to be Congressman Tim Scott,” Haley said. “I am strongly convinced that the entire state understands that this is the right U.S. senator for our state and our country.”
Sen.-designate Scott, 47, will become the only African-American currently serving in the Senate and the first black Republican to serve in the upper chamber since the 1970s. He will also be the first black senator from the South since Reconstruction.
Note on my emphasis in the above paragraph: it was not a Democrat who gave an African-American a chance to represent his/her state in the US Senate, it was a Republican.
It was just September of this year the Huffington Post was lamenting the fact that there would likely be no African-Americans in the Senate for some time to come:
Right now, there are zero. And it will likely remain that way after the 2012 elections, since none of the major Senate candidates are black.
The author goes further to quote a member of the Congressional Black Caucus echoing that lament:
“I frankly think it’s a shame, and I think it is reflective of America sometimes still idling in the past,” said Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-Texas), who is black. “There are enormously talented people in all backgrounds.”
Well, now that the Governor of South Carolina is officially appointing one, is there rejoicing and dancing in the streets by Democrats?
Sadly, no. Only racial hate and vitriol. Seems that skin color is only important to Democrats if one holds the “correct” viewpoint politically.
Witness the viciousness and hatred from Democrats:

Tim Scott or uncle ruckus?….. Sound like the same person to me. Look like Mr Charlie just picked a Tom ….,#TeamFollowBack

See, if you’re an African-American in America today, you’re never truly free. You can’t hold views outside those “approved” views sanctioned by leftist Democrats. You’ll never be free to think for yourself, unless you pick your thoughts from a pre-approved list (see Nancy Pelosi for your free copy).
We’ve come so far from the America we were in the 1800s, and even the 1960s, and it seems to go unnoticed by those that lean left:
People don’t appreciate how far we have come as a nation.
An Indian American of Sikh Heritage, married to a Caucasian, as Governor of the most conservative state in the Union, just made Tim Scott the first GOP African American Senator since reconstruction (and amazingly, only the 7th African American Senator ever), in the former home state of Strom Thurmond, after defeating Strom’s son for the House seat in the first place. And conservatives cheered.
Those same conservatives are called “racists” on a daily basis.
Tell me again, who are the real racists here? Looks like they wear the letter (D) to me.

Just in time for Immaculation, Part 2 -
Our national debt is now more than 16 trillion dollars. The president’s current budget has received zero votes. Senate Democrats haven’t even passed a budget in more than 3 years. It’s time for serious solutions to solve our fiscal crisis. Visit http://GOP.gov/budget to learn more.
Funny, the Democrat complaint during the GOP Convention was that there was never a mention of Iraq or Afghanistan. Well the war in Iraq is over, and yeah, I’d like to know the plan for Afghanistan, but here’s a number that Democrats won’t mention even once during their convention – sixteen. As in, the sixteen trillion in debt B. Hussein Obama has steered us into. No budgets ever passed by the Reid Senate, or signed by the Obama White House. Just kick the can.
The Treasury Department said total government debt hit $16,015,769,788,215.80 on Friday, up $25 billion from the day before. The amount of federal debt subject to the borrowing limit is actually slightly less, as it doesn’t include several types of borrowing, and it stood at $15.977 trillion on Friday.
The government is projected to run a deficit of between $1.1 trillion and $1.2 trillion in the fiscal year that ends Sept. 30, meaning that spending will outpace tax revenue by that amount over 12 months.

Proving that dead flesh can in fact be reanimated, the Democrats trotted out (or piped-in, as it were) ex President and current irrelevant statesman Jimmy Carter out to sing the Obama theme song [my emphasis below]:
Former President Jimmy Carter delivered a 4-minute video address to the Democratic convention, saying Obama offered a “clear choice” for voters. As Carter’s image beamed into the arena, Republican Mitt Romney’s campaign issued a news release declaring, “Welcome Back, Carter!”
Republicans have tried to tie Obama to Carter, comparing the current unemployment rate of 8.3 percent to the economic “malaise” of the late 1970s. A Romney spokesman said by choosing Carter to appear on the opening night of the convention, Obama “chose a fitting surrogate.”
Considering the tie to Jimmy Carter by the DNC was a godsend to the Republicans, it’s no surprise they already had a video waiting for release.
Well, it’s easy to see why the DNC opted for a video (one they could re-take or alter) rather than letting “Jimmah” loose on stage with an open microphone. Carter tends to say goofy and embarrassing shit:
Come convention time, there’s a tactful and a not-so-tactful way for Presidential campaigns to shield the great American public from members of the party hierarchy they’d rather keep firmly under wraps.
The first, which we shall call the Mitt Romney approach, is to simply ignore them. That’s how, in a snub recently chronicled by Newsweek, Sarah Palin ended up being effectively blackballed from last week’s Republican convention in Tampa.
The second, apparently preferred by Barack Obama, is to invite your embarrassing political relatives along, but hope that no-one notices.
Delegates here in Charlotte will this evening be treated to first a speech by Harry Reid, the party’s power-broking leader in the Senate, and then a video-taped series of remarks by former President Jimmy Carter.
