What the Tea Party Really Believes?

What the Tea Party Really Believes?
July 7, 2010
Share

The Pink Flamingo is terrified of extremes. I see the growing extremism and irrational behavior of the tea parties as just that. It did not start out this way, but it is getting there. The very real problem is the fact that the people involved in the tea parties are failing to weigh the biased information they are receiving from their tin-plated gods like Glenn Beck.

If something is not done to put some of these people in check, and explain the facts of life to them, via American history, we are in for a very terrifying ride, abjectly terrifying. How long will it be before some idiotic tea party twit who is seriously unstable does something like what happened in India over the weekend?

I Shall Yell Tripe!

I Shall Yell Tripe!
June 26, 2010
Share

One of The Pink Flamingo’s favorite movie lines is uttered by the late, immortal David Niven. “I shall yell tripe whenever tripe is served!” It comes from the adorable classic Please Don’t Eat the Daisies, based on writer Jean Kerr’s inspirational book by the same title. I say “inspirational” because it is one of those books that helped to inspire The Pink Flamingo to become a writer. In it, the author mentions the reason she became a writer was because writing was the only career where a person could sleep late on a regular basis! Bingo – career path chosen.

One of the things that amazes me the most is the tea party “patriot” and their desire to nominate and vote for men and women who have either no political experience, or no real world experience, or are abject idiots and frauds. Take the State of Florida, please. Have you heard about the tea party tempest there?

Manipulating the Primaries for Personal Ambition?

Manipulating the Primaries for Personal Ambition?
June 21, 2010
Share

Why would Mitt Romney end up donating something like $42,000 to a candidate for governor in South Carolina. Well, first, Gresham Barrett endorsed Fred Thompson in 2008. This is NOT about putting the BEST person into office, it is about Mitt Romney and Sarah Palin manipulating the primaries to get the person THEY think will deliver SC’s extremely important POTUS primary vote in 2012.

Nah, it isn’t about tea parties, patriotism, or even who’s on first. It is about 2012, and the battle to get the nod from the Governor of SC to promote their Presidential ambitions.

SC could be the most pivotal of all primary states. The endorsement of the state’s governor is a big fat hairy deal. We all know Gresham probably won’t endorse either Palin or Romney. Ergo – they gotta go with Haley, shampoo and all.

What are all these endorsements about other than political brownie points?

Mitt Romney’s Foul Donation to Nikki Haley – $42,000!

Mitt Romney’s Foul Donation to Nikki Haley – $42,000!
June 19, 2010
Share

There are a few ethics complaints about Nikki Haley’s income tax returns. She has staggering leadership problems, but that doesn’t matter. She is a woman, ergo she is better and more worthy than Gresham Barrett. Yea, it sounds dirty to me. Gresham and Natalie donated over $20,000 to charity last year. Haley donated $971 dollars. Even to SC Democrats that sounds cheap and just a little selfish.

Nikki Haley is LOSING the cash race. Gresham is being funded from within the state of South Carolina by normal Repubicans who cannot stomach another term of Mark Sanford nothing. So, Nikki’s little friends must come in from out of state and prop up what could be a floundering campaign.

The GOP’s Not Ready for Prime Time Tea Party “Candidates”

The GOP’s Not Ready for Prime Time Tea Party “Candidates”
June 17, 2010

The GOP has a great candidate in Carly Fiorina. On Sunday she was masterful, in complete control of Chris Wallace, keeping to her talking points.

Did you know that Rand Paul is now demanding that reporters submit questions in writing? And you thought Barack Obama was arrogant!

It’s the incompetence stupid!

“…According to Think Progress, Paul (R-KY) has taken to demanding reporters submit questions in writing. He’s keeping to Fox News and other friendly media outlets. Asked about Medicare reimbursement rates at a local event recently, Paul told a reporter to submit the questions “and we’ll look at them.” He said his goal was to campaign around Kentucky. The baffled reporter rebutted: “So you’re not going to answer any questions in person?” (Watch the video here.)

GOP Leadership Factor NM v. SC

GOP Leadership Factor NM v. SC
June 6, 2010

If web sites say anything, take a look at the SCGOP site Karen Floyd is using and the NM site Harvey Yates uses.

Why won’t Nikki Haley take Andre Bauer up on his offer of a lie-detector test? If I were in her position I would do it and grand-stand all the way – if I were innocent.

Evidently SC’s GOP Chair Karen Floyd is MIA. Either that or she is, as The Pink Flamingo has stated numerous times, totally and completely incompetent. Right now some of the nastiest stuff I’ve seen in a long time is going down in SC and she is not stepping in to stop it. We are seeing what is basically a civil war between Nikki Haley and Andre Bauer. One of them is telling the truth and one of them isn’t. Bauer has offered to take a lie detector test. Haley continues to blame him for all of her problems.

PPP’s Very Dirty Poll Against Lindsey -

PPP’s Very Dirty Poll Against Lindsey -
June 4, 2010

The extreme right and the losertarian crowd is ticked with Lindsey. Why?

“…Graham is a tough partisan, and he was making a point about the future of the GOP, which he thinks needs younger people in its ranks. Crucially, he also believes that lowering the risk to the planet and the human race from climate change qualifies as a conservative cause. His exhortation, if taken to heart, could prompt Republicans and Democrats to compete for young, environmentally conscious voters. At a time of partisan squabbling, that would benefit us all. Beyond the political stakes, there are existential ones. Today’s citizens and leaders are not only the first generation to realize that we are living in the era of global warming. We could also be the last that has a chance of slowing and eventually reversing the process….”

When a second man comes forward, either someone is really annoyed with Nikki Haley or there is something to the story?

Currently, Nikki Haley is the recipient of the last bastion of Southern manners and chivalry. Because she is a woman, the man are giving her a break. She is being treated like a frail, fragile, flower of womanhood, pure, never to be dirtied. It doesn’t matter if she is guilty or innocent. It is about the new political double standard.

Are women better than men?
