A little bird told me that you might not be backing down from running for your Senate seat in 2016. I’m here to ask you to please excuse yourself from the political conversation in our state.
No one likes you.
You are old, you are senile, and you sell out conservatism every chance you get.
Come out of the closet already and admit you are a Democrat, you’ll feel much better, I swear.
Or don’t, I don’t really care what you do, as long as you stop trying to pretend you represent conservative ideals.
I personally don’t think anyone could have beat Obama in 2008, but it must have been some collective delusion or some extreme blonde moment that led Republicans to choosing you as the candidate.
I hate to tell you this, but you’ve been “one of these old guys that should’ve shoved off” for a goddamn long time.
In April of this year your approval ratings in the great state of Arizona were abysmal. 67% of those polled we need someone new in office. Only 21% thought you deserved another term and your job approval rating was at the lowest it’s been in 21 years.
Stick a fork in yourself, because you are done.
Liberals are the ones defending you now and you’d rather concentrate on your poker app than on important issues of foreign policy. We didn’t send you to Washington to play games and crack jokes about after you get caught. This isn’t just your job, it’s the future of the United States. It’s shameful that you would be so irresponsible.
You think that supporting the constitution passionately makes someone a “whacko bird” and you’d rather be at dinner with Obama than representing the interests of your constituents. You’re from Arizona, a red state populated by people that don’t appreciate your attempts to sell freedom down the river in order to win brownie points with the administration.
Oh and your daughter isn’t doing your reputation any favors.
In short, please “shove off”, because I promise that I and many other fellow Arizonans will make your next campaign a huge embarrassment for you. We don’t need or want a power hungry, opportunistic, fake Republican representing our state.
Sincerely NOT yours,
Most of the State of Arizona
There’s nothing that annoys me more than someone placing the blame for their stupidity on an inanimate object. Especially an inanimate object like “the internet”. I’m not exactly sure why I’m surprised that Anthony Weiner found a new way to annoy me.
Saying that you probably wouldn’t have sent pictures of your junk to women if the internet didn’t exist (or worse: wouldn’t have got caught if the internet didn’t exist) is like saying “I wouldn’t have cheated on my wife if she put more effort into looking attractive”
You’re trying to excuse your actions, but it just ends up revealing even more flaws in your own character.
Then came a second episode of Weiner’s sexting this summer, blindsiding the Clintons, obliterating Weiner’s mayoral ambitions, and greatly complicating Abedin’s future with the Clintons. With Weiner’s ignominious loss and parting bird-flip, “Huma has a choice to make,” says a close associate of hers. “Does she go with Anthony, or does she go with Hillary?”
One might have good reason to ask Hillary if this ultimatum isn’t a tad bit…hypocritical coming from a woman who played the dutiful political wife through more public accusations (and proof) of infidelity** on the part of her husband than we have seen with any other President in the last 3 decades.
So no one told you life was gonna be this way
Your job’s a joke, you’re broke, your love life’s D.O.A.
No really, I blame Friends for this epidemic of people thinking that they should be able to afford anything and everything on their minimum wage and when they can’t, they demand a raise…even if they aren’t doing anything at all to deserve it.
“It’s not FAIR!”
“I need a WORKING WAGE!”
“I can’t do all the things I WANT!”
“I don’t like my job!”
Did you know that pretty much no one likes their job when they are at the bottom of the payscale? I bet you would like it even less if you lost your job or had your hours cut to the bone because your employer couldn’t afford to increase all of his employee’s hourly wages.
I was flattered when I offered to write this week’s Disney Princess post and the usual blogger accepted. “But who are you?” Well, I’m a young, twenty-something, wife of an active duty military member, currently living in Okinawa, Japan, and a strong Conservative. I hope that I do this series justice. I have loved reading them up until this point and am excited to be able to write one.
I hadn’t seen the Pocahontas film in a long time, and while very historically inaccurate, not exactly a fairy tale and so never high on my “watch it again” list. However, I was so wrong in being as dismissive as I was toward it. Pocahontas turned out to be a very strong, independent, free spirited character with a great message throughout her movie.
Unfortunately, not everyone sees it that way.
Of course they conveniently like Weiner just fine when Breitbart was scooping the story from them ages ago. Must hurt to have someone you despise always be smarter and quicker on the draw than you…even after death.
Traditionally left wing news media have turned on Weiner viciously.
And by “bullying” we mean “asking questions to”, because it’s clearly inconceivable that a defense lawyer would ask pointed questions to the prosecution’s witness in order to poke holes in their story.
Except that if you’ve watch Law and Order even a single time, you would know that this is exactly what lawyer’s do to the witness of their opponent.
Yesterday I wrote:
Someone with a private business wouldn’t make you a cake and you felt “dehumanized”, talk about being a complete wimp. Get over yourselves and grow up. You are acting like a 12 year old girl.
Yes, I’m pissed, because this goes against everything a believe about private business. You should be able to discriminate at will in a private business and I can discriminate at will on whether I shop there.
The free market, it’s a beautiful thing.
And I guess I need to explain that a little more fully.
Or maybe just repeat myself.
Maybe I’m beating a dead horse, but I feel like I need to keep whacking people over the head with this concept until they get it.
Like today, there was an article in one of my local online papers. The story was that Arizona apparently is the 2nd to last state on the list when it comes to education funding.
We only spend $7,666 per student, as opposed to Washington D.C. (the 2nd highest in per education spending) which spends $18,475 per student.
The article wasn’t intended to be negative, in fact I think that the Arizona Capitol Times is one of the few truly fair and non-biased papers we have in Arizona, so I don’t take offense at the coverage. I do however take offense at the lack of depth to the reporting, which was likely in deference to appearing non-biased.
In the report they offered a list of the states which spend the least per student and the states which spend the most and that was that. They did no extra delving into those numbers.
So I crunched the numbers for them.
No need to thank me.
The race for the District 8 Phoenix City Council seat has been anything but fair and clean and it’s also got next to no coverage from any outlet other than Arizona Central or Phoenix NewTimes, and trust me, I get it.
It’s a city council seat, it’s not exactly a state legislator or governor’s race, much less a congressional seat and there is almost zero chance that the new district 8 seat in Phoenix will have long term effects on politics outside of my little corner of the world, but the sheer level of racist rhetoric in this race has been sticking in my craw ever since I heard about it, in January when Kate Gallego was being attacked by a friend of Reverend Sharpton.
Yeah, that Sharpton.
The race card is pulled on an almost daily basis at this point, but one of the districts (not mine, thank god) in my city is undergoing a landslide of racism at the moment. District 8 has historically been a “black district” which apparently means a white person can’t run for office there without it being tantamount to “lynching” the black community politically, according to Jarrett Maupin.
The story has since grown to attacks on a second person running for the same seat.
