    This just in: the comedians just keep coming at the CPAC comedy convention. The Party is imploding with three different factions going at each other. It won’t survice in its presdent state, according to GOP strategists and Rove……

  • usa8888

    Did you all hear that Robme asked the Rat,yes–OUR Rat–to present the accomplishments of the right wing GOP at the CPAC comedy convention……and the Rat couldn’t think of any…………. Rat–you forgot the main one–OBSTRUCTION……

  • usa8888

    This just in from Fox Fake News: Lian Ryan, at the comedy convention, is warning of US collapse over debt…..he also warned that he would not materially change Medicare by voucherizing it…and he warned that if you don’t support the Personhood Amendment, the world will come to an end….
    I believe he was the 6th comedian to speak……..or do stand-up

  • usa8888

    This just in: Colorado lawmakers have passed numerous gun control measures after death threats from the right wing gun kooks…..some of whom will end up in prison……

  • usa8888

    This just in: The CPAC Comedy Convention has booked their next year’s comedy convemtion on the Carnival Cruise Ship–maybe they figured if the toilets overflowed, nobody would know the difference between the pollution on the floors and the pollution eminating from the stage……………..

  • Ratboy

    I see someone is sitting alone playing with HIMSELF again

  • Jeff

    Chriscee, stop trying to play GOD, and anyone else who thinks, saying Rick Santorum toned down his hate rhetoric due to a family death is SO BAD can go f–k yourself. Your GOD would be more concerned that you are trying to play his role in pretending to know where someone goes in the after life.

    Get a grip ya morons.

  • Jeff


    Any see Paul Begula tell the entire CPAC room of idiots to sit down and shut up? Since the GOP boo on duty soldiers and sick people without insurance, Paul should not be too concerned. He trashed Regan’s horrible record and President Bush 1& 2. LOVED IT!! He said let the adults in the room handle discussion about the economy.

    I share his thoughts. History proves that Democrats run a better Government than republicans. So sit down and shut up.

  • Jeff

    @I see someone is sitting alone playing with HIMSELF again

    Seems it you again……stop being a douche!!

  • Bobbyv


    I don’t think the Dems have the high ground when it comes to treatment of soldiers, unless you are going to claim the people protesting them as they came back from Vietnam were R’s. Lot of stories about getting spit on, not sure if they are true.

  • usa8888

    Where’s the Rat when you need right wing GOP accomplishments?

  • Ratboy

    @ Bobbyv
    The stories are absolutely true! Many of my friends and relatives wiped the it from their faces. I was never in the service due to my physical condition at the time and I thank God for it because I would have been in the jungles of Nam too and maybe have been like other friends and family that came home in body bags

  • Bobbyv


    I think one thing we can all be proud of is the way soldiers are treated now. Even if people are against the wars for the most part they protest the policy and not the soldiers.

  • Mark2

    @usa8888 “GOP Accomplishments”

    Well here are some Bills that Republicans voted Against, Blocked, or attempted to Block:

    -Health Care for the 9/11 First Responders who got sick from being at Ground Zero
    -Veteran’s Jobs Bill
    -Benefits for Homeless Veterans
    -Improvements to the GI Bill
    -Stop Loss payments for Deployed Soldiers
    -Improvements to Department of Defense domestic violence programs.
    -Department of Defense recognition of spouses of members of the Armed Forces.
    -Department of Defense recognition of children of members of the Armed Forces.
    -Enhancements to the Troops-to-Teachers Program.
    -Fiscal year 2011 increase in military basic pay.
    -Improving aural protection for members of the Armed Forces.
    -Comprehensive policy on neurocognitive assessment by the military health care system.
    -Protection of child custody arrangements for parents who are members of Armed Forces deployed in support of a contingency operation.
    -Anti-Rape Amendment to the Defense Appropriations Bill
    -Repeal of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell”
    -Wall Street Reform
    -Tax on Companies that ship jobs overseas
    -American Recovery and Reinvestment Act
    -Unemployment extension bill
    -The Jobs Bill
    -The Small Business Jobs Act
    -Fair Pay Act of 2009 Lily Ledbetter bill

    And that’s why the Republican Party is dying out.

  • Jeff


    Your story has NOTHING to do with my comment. The GOP booed a active duty soldier, PERIOD! But on the subject, Democrats never allowed or played with the purse strings of the military while we were at war…..and still are, as the GOP are doing now. The Republicans in congress are a new branch of the Taliban.

  • Bobbyv


    If you are going to judge how people act towards the military I would think your own house should be above reproach, or at least historically in a better place than those you are judging. I am certainly not going to condone booing, as I am sure you are not condoning any bad treatment by D’s.

  • usa8888

    Yes, Mark2, we should keep these “accomplishments” of the right wing GOP handy; hopefully Rat has read them and can convey them to the CPAC Comedy Convention team……

  • usa8888

    Seriously, right wingers, MSNBC.com has an excellent review of the goings-on at the CPAC comedy convention–it is REALLY funny. You won’t believe the combined stupidity that CPAC has managed to gather in one room..It is really embarrassing for the right wing….and we have one right wing clown after another going after Robme, Rove, Christie…I mean it is a free for all..and you have the circus master Donald Trump skewering everyone as he talks to a half-empty room…..This can NOT be good for the right wingers…..

  • usa8888

    Where did all the right wing kooks go? Dana, BS, Rat, ibsles, chris,….are you watching MSNBC????

  • usa8888

    This just in from Fox Fake News: Fox is too embarrassed to do a story on the CPAC comedy convention so they have again rehashed the bogus Benghazi story they have been pushing for the past two months………..
