In another month or so you’ll probably have the opportunity to help that happen by donating to Ashley Judd.

At CPAC, Pat Caddell called Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) “the Ambrose Burnside of American politics.” Burnside was the commander of the Union’s Army of the Potomac during the Civil War. He was dismissed by Lincoln for his inability to press his advantage against the enemy, his plodding and unimaginative strategies, and his inability to focus resources on the tactics needed for victory.

There was a news clip the other day of McConnell standing next to Obama, looking up at him in like a teenager to a rock star, it was disgusting.

Caddell makes a good analogy. It’s justification for getting rid of him as Minority Leader. But falls way short of replacing him with Ashley Judd.

The problem is the a-holes making the laws exempted themselves. That alone is un-American and should be unlawful. What about the “equal protection” in the Constitution?

If these corrupt arrogant slimes were facing what they foisted on us they’d be singing a different tune.

When does the revolution start?

Once we understand they Royalty and we are Subjects, it gets easier to understand how we got in this mess.

After the first election my tag line was...

We just had a bloodless Coup d'état and no one noticed.

Yeah, it took Pat Caddell, the guy who ran Jimmah’s campaign, to point out that this guy is a worthless POS! And all those “revelations” about GOPe “political consultants” was spot on as well. Good for Pat. Even he doesn’t like the RATs today, and seems to care more about the country than most of the GOP “leaders” do!

McConnell will vow until he is safely reelected a senator and reelected to repubican leader (whether minority or majority). Then he will go back to undermining conservatism.

McConnell and Cornyn are the supposed “leaders” yet their junior senators, Paul and Cruz, are the ones leading.

Next year we can remove both McConnell and Cornyn so there can be new leadership.

All else aside, how exactly does he plan on doing this? At least for the next (almost) 4 years, he would need a veto-proof majority (67 Senators, 290 Reps). Factoring in gerrymandering on the House side, especially, that’s just not going to happen any time soon.

“Once we understand they Royalty and we are Subjects, it gets easier”


You are unfortunately right but it is within our power to push back.

Highly condensed true story:

I was doing a trade show in Philly and threw out my back. Went back to the hotel but a large black Kojak looking guy was blocking the elevator.

I said, I guess you are holding that for someone more important than me to which he replied: “Why yes for a US Senator”

As I pushed his bloated body out of the way and entered the elevator I said, that just makes him a public servant and my employee.

We are only subjects if we cower to them. They are our servants and it is well past time to put them in their place. They know this and it is the real reason behind gun control.

McConnell’s buds in the House could have done this recently by including no funding for nobamcare in the Continuing Resolution. But NOOOOOOOOOO. Can’t have that.

The mentally diseased liberals might get upset if we did that. The blatantly leftist press might get upset if we did that. And we shirley don’t want anyone upset with us. Lordy no, a fate worse than death.

We need BALLZ in the House!

This is the same dipstick who wants to send a “petition” to Obama requesting that he [Obama] please stop taking away the Senate’s (i.e. legislative branch’s) powers.

With the equipment he’s got, he better stuff a sock down his pants if he wants people to think he is a male of the species.

I think the GOP wants loonie Ashley to run just to force us to vote for Harry Reid's bitch.

Without a complete whack job as the Dem candidate, Mitch could be vulnerable to another Rand Paul type in the primary.

Lincoln wrote to Burnside, “My dear General, if you are not going to use the Army, I should like to borrow it for awhile.”

McConnell defeated by Ashley Judd. It doesn’t sound so laughable now. Of course, there’d be all that seniority gone.

No kidding. McConnell only has a 100% conservative rating from ACU—that’s not good enough. Replace him with Ashley Judd. These folks here on FR have a death wish.
