From Town Hall: This is a thing of beauty.
I thought I’ve said stuff about these idiots, but Michael Medved, a 100% PURE Republican – the only 100% Republican we have on the radio, takes out a Glenn Beck idiot!
If you can only subscribe to one radio show, Medved is a Can’t Miss!. The Pink Flamingo can’t pick him up live, but I listen every weekday evening – and I do mean every. To prove the point – read the nasty conservative idiot comments. These people are out of control and need a time out before they destroy the country!
“I worry about a country where you can’t disagree,” Lindsey Graham
The other day, in a town hall meeting, Lindsey discussed the fact that civility in Washington is endangered and that it is spilling out into the nation.
The Pink Flamingo thinks the extremes of both parties, the far right and the far left are to blame. Certainly the Ron Paul Bots are some of the worst offenders of the lot. They are reaching the point where a rational person can’t have a rational conversation with members of the House or Senate because of Ron Paul Bots butting in and making (rear end of Democratic mascot) of themselves.Read More
This is a photo of pitching legend Curt Schilling. Would someone please explain to Martha Coakley that he is wearing a Red Sox uniform and is Red Sox legend?
The Pink Flamingo wants to give Martha Coakley a break on this one because not everyone is a baseball fan. Thus said, when you are the AG of a state, running for senate from a state where the Boston Red Sox are a legend, how dumb can you possibly be?
Sorry, but no one can be this stupid…not really.

“…Her Taliban comment is the height of one of these three: ignorance, stupidity, (or) dishonesty. I want someone with energy, someone that wants to change it all. She’s lock step business as usual in a way that should be frightening.” Curt Schilling
In New England two things are sacred. You DO NOT diss those two sacred entities and expect to remain in office for very long. You can trash the USA. You can say something nasty about religion – just pick a religion. Misc. elected officials can be insulted, they are fair game. Same thing holds true with the Kennedys. Insult ’em, it’s okay.
Coakley can insult Catholics, our troops, and be a total idiot when it comes to national security. She can (sort of) get away with it – while proving she is a total idiot.
BUT – when you diss the Boston Red Sox and their cathedral, Fenway Park, the sin is unpardonable. The only thing she could do that would be worse is insult the memory of Ted Williams.
(Disclaimer: The Pink Flamingo is a National League fan, primarily pulling for the Braves. When pulling for the AL, I support the Red Sox).
(AJ Strata thinks she has managed to sink her campaign).
Or as the guys at HillBuzz put it:
“...Martha Coakley’s practically taken photos of Fenway Park, ripped them up into confetti, thrown them in the air, then had dogs urinate on them. Her attitude is deplorable. It really does appear her true nature is coming out in this campaign: she infuriated us by having one of her goons push a reporter to the ground the other day, and now she’s denigrating the kind of old school campaigning we want to see politicians engage in: going out to meet the voters at places like Fenway Park, which Scott Brown is out there doing…”
By insulting baseball fans and Fenway Park, Coakley has insulted baseball, hotdogs, apple pie, and Ted Williams. Even more importantly – she has proven that she does not even begin to comprehend this nation. She does not understand…
“...The one constant through all the years…has been baseball. America has rolled by like an army of steamrollers. It’s been erased like a blackboard, rebuilt, and erased again. But baseball has marked the time. This field, this game, is a part of our pas… It reminds us of all that once was good, and it could be again….”
That is the basic difference between Democrats and Republicans. We believe in something. We believe in America, hotdogs, apple pie, and baseball. We could even be the best looking political party!
The wise woman builds her house,
but the foolish tears it down with her own hands.
“…The USGS has already measured more than 40 aftershocks above a 4.0 magnitude (including a 5.9 and 5.5 magnitude) and many more below that, Bedwell said. More aftershocks are anticipated in the coming days and weeks as the restive fault continues to react to the jolt that set it off in the first plac”…”
According to the Wunderground weather blog Haiti was just now recovering from the 2008 Hurricane season.
“…In many ways, the hurricane season of 2008 was the cruelest ever experienced in Haiti. Four storms–Fay, Gustav, Hanna, and Ike–dumped heavy rains on the impoverished nation. The rugged hillsides, stripped bare of 98% of their forest cover thanks to deforestation, let flood waters rampage into large areas of the country. Particularly hard-hit was Gonaives, the fourth largest city. According to reliefweb.org, Haiti suffered 793 killed, with 310 missing and another 593 injured. The hurricanes destroyed 22,702 homes and damaged another 84,625. About 800,000 people were affected–8% of Haiti’s total population. The flood wiped out 70% of Haiti’s crops, resulting in dozens of deaths of children due to malnutrition in the months following the storms. Damage was estimated at over $1 billion, the costliest natural disaster in Haitian history. The damage amounted to over 5% of the country’s $17 billion GDP, a massive blow for a nation so poor…”
Two years ago this specific quake was predicted.
“...In a presentation to the 18th Caribbean Geological Conference in 2008, the team pointed out that their models showed a slip rate of around 8 millimetres per year on the fault. In their abstract they warned that this, combined with the fact that the last known major earthquake near Haiti was in 1751, could add up to yield “~2 meters of accumulated strain deficit, or a Mw=7.2 earthquake if all is released in a single event today”. One of the team members, geophysicist Eric Calais of Purdue University in West Lafayette, Indiana, said in an e-mail to Nature: “Unfortunately we were pretty much right on.”…”
From Eruptions comes a portal into the science of the big one in Haiti. This is a straight post about the cold blooded science of the incident – nothing more and nothing less. This is the largest quake in the region since 1751, when there was one well over 8.0. This specific quake has now been ramped up to a 7.2, and was quite shallow, which is why there was so much damage.
Yes, Rush, there are armed right wing militias in this country who are threatening to over-throw the government. They are considered freaks and nuts, but they are out there. They are called the American Resistance Movement, patriots, etcs. Evidently they could really be into Ron Paul! They have a freedom fighter radio thingie.
Oh, and they hate Lindsey.
They are nuts – but they are nuts with guns. Nuts with guns are nuts to be feared.
This is yet another of those pesky Pink Flamingo “I told you so” posts. There are crazies on the far right who are basically an armed militia. What The Palmetto Scoop shows from the cached video should be considered a threat against a United States Senator.
Photo from the Upstate Today shows our idiot friend being removed from the meeting.

Michael Medved, in the opening moments of his Monday’s radio show brought up a very salient point. We DO NOT want Harry Reid to resign. We want him right where he is, running for re-election. We want Harry Reid as one of the faces of the Democrats.
You gotta love the Dems. They are so very adorable, cute, and just plain fun to watch.
Then again they are creepy and they are kooky!Read More
I think the Dems have a problem. Nature abhors a vacuum.
Is Scott Brown the Dem’s worst nightmare?
Have you seen this new ad Martha Coakley is running against Scott Brown. If it weren’t so serious, I would think the ad is a gag. No serious candidate would ever run anything so pathetic. I’ve watched it twice because I cannot believe a rational candidate would even think of such a thing. It must be a SNL gag or something.Read More
Whoever loves discipline loves knowledge,
but those who hate to be rebuked are stupid.
It appears to me if we are all equal, then those of us who consider the confiscation of funds for government usage for things like Social Security, Medicare, and this obscene Health Care thing have just as many rights as the Amish. As a conservative Republican I DO NOT BELIEVE in accepting hand-outs from the Federal Government.
The Amish do not perform any form of military service yet have more rights under their special protection handed down by the feds and the IRS than the men and women who are out fighting for their country.
The more I think about this the more enraged I become.
“…What the Amish wanted to do, in effect, was opt out of the Social Security and Medicare systems entirely, and after a public backlash over the livestock confiscations, Congress decided to permit a narrow exemption for religious sects “opposed to acceptance of the benefits of any private or public insurance.”…”
Mark McGwire has finally admitted to using steroids for nearly a decade. The way I feel about the use of those things, and what it has done to baseball – put an asterick by the record. Roger Maris lived with it, but Maris did his record the old fashioned way – he earned it.
We all know it is about getting into the HOF. Sorry, but after this, I have no sympathy. Then again, the way I detest the Cards (my least favorite team) what can you expect?
“...Mark McGwire finally came clean Monday, admitting he used steroids when he broke baseball’s home run record in 1998. McGwire said in a statement sent to The Associated Press on Monday that he used steroids on and off for nearly a decade. “I wish I had never touched steroids,” McGwire said in a statement. “It was foolish and it was a mistake. I truly apologize. Looking back, I wish I had never played during the steroid era.” McGwire also used human growth hormone, a person close to McGwire said, speaking on condition of anonymity because McGwire didn’t include that detail in his statement. McGwire’s decision to admit using steroids was prompted by his decision to become hitting coach of the St. Louis Cardinals, his final big league team. Tony La Russa, McGwire’s manager in Oakland and St. Louis, has been among McGwire’s biggest supporters and thinks returning to the field can restore the former slugger’s reputation. “I never knew when, but I always knew this day would come,” McGwire said. “It’s time for me to talk about the past and to confirm what people have suspected.”…”
The integrity of the upright guides them,
but the crookedness of the treacherous destroys them.
What does Charlton Heston, Ben Hur, and the battle against the pirates have to do with the problems in Mexico?
“…Juárez’s main product now is the corpse. Last year, drug-related violence there claimed more than 1,600 lives, and the toll for the first nine months of this year soared beyond 1,800, and mounts daily. That makes Juárez, population 1.5 million, the most violent city in the world. Two lines of graffiti summed up a place where not only law and order but civilization itself has broken down: Mi ciudad pide clemencia en su dementia (“My city asks for mercy in its madness”), and Mi ciudad es un negro lamento un aullido infinito (“My city is a black lament, an eternal howl”)….”
I have a very dear friend who is from Mexico. She and her husband are now American citizens and huge Republicans. She is devistated about what is going on in Mexico, telling me her friends are leaving the country, moving here or Europe as fast as they can. I am also hearing this from other sources I know who are from Mexico or have friends there.Read More
Treasures gained by wickedness do not profit,
but righteousness delivers from death.
The Pink Flamingo wants to make a prediction. In six months, Sarah Palin, the darling of the Tea Party “patriots” will be the far right’s public enemy #2, right up there with Lindsey.
She is showing her true – VERY RED – colors!
Sarah Palin is making money off the whole thing. She is not doing this for charity. And – now that the idiots are realizing that they must pay speakers, the you know what that drops out of the rear of Alaskan carribou is about ready to hit the fan.
“…The Tea Party convention, for one, is charging $549 per person for the event—no doubt to pay for Palin’s speaking fee, reportedly as high as $100,000—which has left some supporters queasy about the entire production. “This is the beginning of the end of it as a ground-up movement. Let the co-optation begin,” writes one pro–Tea Party blogger. The buckracking echoes the arrival of groups like the Tea Party Express, which used the name of the grassroots insurrection to raise funds for a longstanding Republican political action committee. As Stephanie Mencimer has reported, such developments have led to major clashes with groups like the “Tea Party Patriots,” who’ve adhered to the anti-establishment, grassroots ethos that originally founded the movement…”
The Pink Flamingo is loving every minute of it.
