EATING THEIR YOUNG: The Republican Party continues to destroy itself from within. The Senate Conservative Fund, a political action organization led by current Heritage Foundation President and former US Senator Jim DeMint (R-SC) is sponsoring attack ads against seven Republican senators who are running for re-election in 2014. Presumably these seven senators are not conservative enough for the Republican base. The funds’ most notable target is current Senator Minority Leader, Mitch McConnell. (R-KY). McConnell had the audacity to say that the Tea Party goal of shutting down the government unless a continuing resolution is passed that defunds Obamacare is political suicide. The Senate conservative Fund is spending $50,000 on a 60 second attack ad that will begin airing this Tuesday in Kentucky, where the embattled McConnell is seeking a 6th term.
GONNA PARTY LIKE ITS 1999: If you are not doing anything on September 10 you might want to head over to the Exempt America Rally organized by the Tea Party Patriots and ForAmerica. Tea Party heartthrobs Ted Cruz and Rand Paul will be headlining the festivities. The goal is rally support for the defunding of Obamacare. Cruz, Paul and their buddies want to shut down the government if the upcoming continuing resolution includes funding for the president’s health care law. Nothing endears one to the masses like delaying their social security checks or withholding unemployment their benefits. Queries as to the group’s alternative plan to replace Obamacare were met with silence…and the soothing sound of crickets chirping in the back ground.
Democrats are smiling!
