“Their restrictive laws would have zero impact on the national elections.
Republicans have been scamming democracy in Texas for many years now. Cruz, Gohmert and every other TexasRepubliBozo embarrassing the state in the nation's capitol are a direct cause/effect of successful, sneaky, underhanded and sleazy republican gerrymandering ... now they are into the voter disenfranchisement and intimidation business and that will effect even more both state and national "elections". Teapublicans are natural enemies of democracy, freedom, human rights and equality - basically every human right the founding fathers intended for We The People to experience.”

“Texas is not a swing state. Best to concern yourself with swing states not states that always vote Republican.”
“So the taxpayers are paying these useless congressional obstructionists almost $1550 a DAY to be an insurmountable obstacle to any kind of leglislative progress? I think they should be paying US to put up with their BullSheet!”
“Women of Virginia ... UNITE. We are united in Texas and are absolutely determined to free our state of the RepressiveWomenHaterRepublicans. Please join us ... start with throwing Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli under the bus - and we will be right behind you throwing Attorney General Greg Abbott off a cliff.”

“Along with women in Wisconsin, to vote out Paul Ryan in 2014. Go Rob Zerban , robzerban.com, donate if you can. Ryan is a threat to EVERY state with his radical budgets and trying to give seniors coupons for Medicare. Also Scott Walker, polls showing Burke, who will run against Walker within the margin of error. Republican extremism with voter supression and getting into womens healthcare.”

“Hey...I'm with ya - if you want to go to a dirty clinic where they use rusty old coat hangers, go for it. I certainly don't want to be lumped into the "RepressiveWomenHaterRepublican" category by having the nerve to suggest these clinics should have 'some' medical standards.”

“You ought to check your polls in Texas, the majority of Texans are in favor of the recent laws which were passed including a majority of women. And the polls aren't even close.”
“No one gave more money to Republican and conservative causes in the 2012 election cycle than Sheldon Adelson, the billionaire casino magnate, and Charles and David Koch, the billionaire industrialists. Now, the trio seem to be competing for the right to OWN Republicans.
There ... fixed it. Now it is a true statement.”
“Can you honestly say you think America is the best country to live in?
Not anymore ... and tragically it is an old and shriveled-up Australian MegaMediaMogul who has greased the downward spiral of this nation by brain-washing people who find it difficult - if not impossible - to think for themselves and are easily led around by the nose. These are the people who have become the LowInformationVoters responsible for putting into power the very persons whose goal it is to destroy what was once a thriving middle class and their quality of life. A plutocracy must have its serfs ... and Murdoch is providing the NoBrainWarmBodies.”

“Yeah... please keep him over there.. we really don’t want him back.
Sorry Americans.. We didn’t know that Melbourne could produce such a monster. To think that his mother was such a caring person :(”
“If you cast your mind back a few years, you might remember that, briefly, Scott Brown was sort of a thing.
Scott Brown's naked Cosmo centerfold picture was the "sort of a thing" I would really prefer be erased from my memory. I wish he would quit playing politics so I never have to be reminded he still exists.”
“Cheney has never met a war he wouldn't start, never met a war he could win, never met a war he could end.
Excellent post - the sum total of Cheney's miserable life in a single sentence deserves to be fanned and faved!!”
“The comment by the REPUBLICAN official was "he criticized "lazy black people that wants the government to give them everything." The republican response was "Let me make it very clear, Mr. Yelton's comments do not reflect the belief or feelings of Buncombe republicans, nor do they mirror any core principle that our party is founded upon," Mitchell stated. "This mentality will not be supported or propagated within our party."
So do these tools remember the infamous "47% ..." remark made by their failed presidential candidate? I think it is VERY clear to everyone just exactly how republicans feel about anyone who is not an old - white - male! Yet here they go again ... (unsuccessfully) attempting to cover up their excrement with litter.”
“The statement is attributed to a Texas republican ... that's all the proof I need that the unforgivably disrespectful comment was said. There is not even a modicum of cooth to be found among teapublicans in Texas (or anywhere else for that matter)..”
“I am totaly opposed to these 'Toddlers & Tiaras' types of shows. There are simply too many perverts out there
and that includes the parents of those poor female children who are being so dramatically exploited”
“This last teapublican political stunt FINALLY woke the citizens of this nation up to the swath of national destruction that the party of G(reed) O(ligarchy) P(lutocracy) has intentionally and wilfully caused. Their stated GOAL is to 'drown the government in a bathtub' - instead, they have drowned the reputation and trust in the intentions of their political party. People NEED their government to function properly - even MORE than the 1percenters need teapublican political pawns in their back pocket.”
“'The baggers were created by the kochs, fed by racism and sustained by ignorance.'
Fred Koch should have been forced to have a vasectomy after inflicting the horrific Birchers on this nation. The baggers - created and controlled by his offspring - are Birchers on steroids. If the Koch DNA does not become extinct soon, then I fear this nation will.”
