Index of Incredulity

Even a broken clock is right twice a day.

Schultheis, IMHO, needs to resign unless he wants to do even MORE damage to the CO GOP*.

When even the Colorado Index isn't on your side, you is at da corner of 'No' and 'Where'

* which I'd be A-OK with, they guy's a real team player... just on the wrong team.

King County (Seattle) Sherrif's department.

I can only imagine what his bed partners must go through.

Write and ask if this is 'standard procedure' - I did.

Update 3/4/09 HI BOB!!!!!!

Here's the response, from the Sherrif:

Subject: Your concerns regarding Deputy Schene
Date: March 4, 2009 6:40:33 PM MST

On Mar 4, 2009, at 6:40 PM, King County Sheriff wrote:

Thank you for expressing your concern about this incident. I share your concern. Please know what was depicted in this video clip does not reflect the values of the other 750 sworn deputies of this Sheriff’s Office. I make this statement knowing that it was a fellow King County deputy who brought this matter to the attention of a supervisor. That supervisor took immediate action and the process was initiated for a criminal investigation within 24 hours of the incident. The very next day the deputy was relieved from duty.

The case is now in the hands of the King County Prosecutor’s Office. I am hopeful this matter will be concluded in a just and timely manner.

Good. Here's hoping the creep will never carry a gun or wear an officer's uniform again. Maybe a nice little stretch inside will help him understand assault is a crime.

Wad's About to be Blown

I'm sure Big Dick's not happy about this.

And thus goes the continued disintegration of the CO GOP.

With help from Renfroe and Schultheis there should be almost nothing left by Spring.

Go guys! GO!

I Bet There's A Scandal

I hear James Dobson is stepping down from Focus on de Fambly.

My money is on a big, nasty child molestation scandal.

Remember, this is the man that said you should take you preschool son into the shower and 'show him who the 'big man' in the family is'

Guaranteed there's something very evil about to come to light and this move is more about protecting the business interests of FOF than anything else.

Can't wait to watch the lid fly off this one.

Union Colony, Forge of the Moral Compass

For a town that was originally founded as an:
"...experimental utopian community of high moral standards"
Greeley (as the town was renamed later in a desperate bid for relevance... that never came) has definitely made a strong showing in the War on Gayness, heroic plaid-wearin lumberjack types that they are.

With an elected representative like Scott Renfroe, the town has all but stood up en masse and spat on the GLBTA community in Colorado. What moral courage. What intensity. What a desperate, burning need for laxatives.

Renfroe, his eyes slitted from spending too much time staring into the sun, corners of his mouth turned down permanently from frowning on others (or perhaps excessive use of depressants), likened being gay to 'murder' and burbled out a string of Leviticus passages as he alternately barked and meowed about his soon-to-be-doomed bill.

Well, of course Caplis wanted him on the air, hoping to feel him humping his leg in that oh-so-amusing way but the 'Scotty Dog' wouldn't come to heel - no show.

I think Scotty Dog's misunderstood, he just wants to protect my marriage from those hordes of paisley-wearing designers dead-set on turning us all gay.

If only he'd look at Longmont's Lunatic Fringe, he'd realize it's far too late...

Beret-tip to the delightful chappies at SquareState.

Don't forget to send Scotty Dog some love and join the Facebook page that's been designed to help him get in touch with his inner sinner.
UPDATE - Feb 25, 10:20pm (HI BOB!!!!!!)

Now Renfroe is apologizing.

"You're a murderer" --beat-- "Oh, I'm sorry, I didn't mean it!"

Scotty, Scotty... nice try.

Guys... measure twice, cut once. Think, then speak.

Or don't. That works too.

Massive Fail for the Preacher of Hate - Phelps loses $10.9 Million Judgement

From the BBC News1

The father of Lance Cpl Matthew Snyder, a Marine who died serving in Iraq in March 2006, has won a $10.9 million judgment against the Westboro Baptist Church, the group that picketed his son's funeral with signs reading "Thank God for dead soldiers" and "You're going to hell." Albert Snyder's lawyer urged the jury to ensure the damages were high enough to stop the church campaigning.
"Do not bring your circus of hate to Maryland again"
- Craig Trebilcock, Attorney for Albert Snyder
I'm so gratified that America is waking up from it's long, drugged slumber and telling this vicious and evil man 'we do not agree'.

Big hat tip to the Drudge Retort (giggles yet again at David Brown)

1. Because you will NOT see this in any Colorado newspaper until it's old and cold - certainly not one owned by Gannett.

Garrison Keillor sees the GOP clearly

I recall having once referred to Republicans as "hairy-backed swamp developers, fundamentalist bullies, freelance racists, hobby cops, sweatshop tycoons, line jumpers, marsupial moms and aluminum-siding salesmen, misanthropic frat boys, ninja dittoheads, shrieking midgets, tax cheats, cheese merchants, cat stranglers, pill pushers, nihilists in golf pants, backed-up Baptists, the grand pooh-bahs of Percodan, mouth breathers, testosterone junkies and brownshirts in pinstripes." I look at those words now, and "cat stranglers" seems excessive to me. The number of cat stranglers in the ranks of the Republican Party is surely low, and that reference was hurtful to Republicans and to cat owners. I feel sheepish about it.

Read the whole article here, it's great.

While Longmont Simmers, El Paso County Begins to Bubble

Great story over at the Colorado Index:

This starting quote made me immediately think of the LIFT organization in Longmont:
"For a long time, I've been wishing that Republicans would begin to organize extra party funding organizations to compete with the Democrats."
Apparently the local monied strongmen were reading the Watcher's mind...

Later in the article I saw this:
"But, will that money be used to promote party division or party unity? If the above quote isn't clear that the organizers intend this effort to be disruptive..."
Well, 'disruption' is the middle name of the GOP, the Grand Obstructionist/Disruptionist Party.

Seems like every time I read the Colorado Index I end up saying out loud:

"You're STILL a Republican?"

One thing to be a sore loser... quite another to be a sore loser and a slow learner.

Saying No to the LIFT Takeover

I completely support everything Kaye says in this video:

The LIFT organization is comprised of realtors and developers dead-set on taking over Longmont's City Council at any price - and the rumor is they're willing to invest hundreds of thousands to do it.

If you want to return to the days of a town run from the back room by a shadow government of wealthy elites, sit back, relax and do nothing. Otherwise, get pissed off, call or write your neighbors and tell them:

'Vote NO on any candidates backed by LIFT'

Cheerleaders from Hell

Just saw this comment at the Times-Call:
Why don't you just look at Japan circa 1990 to see how it will work out? They did this "experiment", and it didn't work. Let's see now, Japan had a banking crisis and a recession. They responded with no less than 8 massive stimulus packages, and a series of measures to prop up bad banks (sound familiar). The final nail in their economy was raising taxes to deal with their huge debt (I see obama has just proposed doing this, so we're right on schedule). Welcome to the beginning of the new Lost American Decade (Japan 2.0, the sequel).
Um, let's see, the Japanese car industry is still kicking the living crap out of Detroit, which has kept paying their execs ludicrous salaries and benefits for FAILING. Their electronics industry is still selling products and their students are outperforming ours by a huge ratio.

The 'New Lost American Decade' started in 2000, jackass. And you voted it in.

Guess what, you LOST the moment you reelected Bush. Your pathetic joke of a president and travesty of a party managed to turn the majority of the country against themselves and LOST.

So now all you and your Limbaugh-listening LOSER pals can do is hope and PRAY the entire COUNTRY fails just so you can dance on its grave.

Jesus Bloody Christ, the GOP stormtroopers have gone stark staring crazy.

But I don't want them to be quiet, oh no... please, by all means, GO ON. KEEP TALKING.
