Monday Open Thread

  1. Based on this particular conviction, I think it’s time to start investigating our own Secy of State!

    Indiana Republican Secretary Of State Found Guilty Of Voter Fraud

    Let’s admit it, we all saw this one coming. After passing restrictive voter ID laws to combat non-existent voter fraud, it turns out that so far, the only people really committing voter fraud are Republicans. During the New Hampshire primary last month, conservative journalist wannabe James O’Keefe committed voter fraud on camera. And now, the Republican Secretary of State in Indiana has been found guilty of committing voter fraud.

    According to the Indianapolis Star, Charlie White was convicted of 6 felony charges, three of which involve voter fraud. Apparently, White claimed he lived on one side of the town of Fishers with his ex-wife, when he actually lived on the other side of town with his fiancee. In others words, he lied about his residency on his voter registration. Oops.

    If he were a Dem, I’m sure ‘tad would’ve rolled out his usual YouTube posts….

  2. Scott Walker to Meet with Prosecutors TODAY

    I’m finding the WI situation very interesting. Interesting for the genuine grassroots backlash against the rightie cabal’s dirty tricks. I truly hope Snotty Walker goes down in flames. What makes it more interesting day by day is the possible implication for the GOP of Rinse Priebus’s involvement. I was not aware of his Haley Barbour ties, his rise to fame, and his possible involvement with Walker’s “John Doe” problem until recently.  

    So, since it’s a slow CO news day this will make for some interesting reading (especially comments from GrumpyOldGeek@DailyKos)  

    I am going to make a bold prediction that Scott Walker and a few others will be indicted within a month or two. Reince Priebus might be included in the list. Perhaps later on … (read more)

  3. ABC News/Washington Post poll: Obama bests Romney; with more exposure, GOP candidate less liked. So the tell from the data suggests that Repugs will just vote anyone but Obama, but not enough to keep him from winning.  One highlighted question:

    Q: If Presidential elections were held today and the candidates were Barack Obama, the Democrat and …, the Republican, whom would you vote for?

    Obama:  51%

    Romney: 45%

    Other: 3%


    Obama: 54%

    Gingrich: 43%

    Other: 3%

    So it would seem the GOP nominee doesn’t matter – which isn’t any new news. Now since the GOP primaries & caucuses have been experiencing surprisingly poor turnout it would suggests the same will hold true in the general.  And there’s a considerable decreased fervency on the TeaBaggers front (which drove state & local elections in the midterms) so I’m thinking that there is the making for a bit of a ass-whuppin’ in 2012. Wonder what my Psychic Friends think …    

    1. in this bit from the Daily Beast: Tea Party ‘Is Dead’: How the Movement Fizzled in 2012’s GOP Primaries

      But after months of wondering how the Tea Party would change the primary game, leaders inside the movement admit they never came in off the sidelines. For the Tea Party movement, the 2012 presidential primaries have been a bust.

      “The Tea Party movement is dead. It’s gone,” says Chris Littleton, the cofounder of the Ohio Liberty Council, a statewide coalition of Tea Party groups in Ohio. “I think largely the Tea Party is irrelevant in the primaries. They aren’t passionate about any of the candidates, and if they are passionate, they’re for Ron Paul.”

      Which makes all the pandering by the GOPs flavor-of-the-week debaters that much more pathetic. But ya know all that thinly veiled virulent racism & bigotry cloaked behind TeaBaggers’ rants still exists so how will it be manifest in a 2nd Obama term?  

  4. This morning on KOA on the way in, I heard the first ad of the campaign in Colorado.  It’s a Mitt Romney anti-choice ad, using all the key words for the anti-choice crowd.  Frankly, it was shocking.  It could be an ad for Santorum.  

    Really stupid.  What advisor told Romney, who dominated the caucuses here four years ago to do this.  This is one of the most pro-choice states in the country.  And as we know from two years ago, it matters to Coloradoans.  Talk about shooting yourself in the foot.  He may have just blown his brains out here in Colorado.

    Couldn’t happen to a nicer guy who never takes a position he won’t change on a minute’s notice.  Don’t worry, in the fall he’ll be pro-choice again.

  5. In Colorado, ‘anybody but Obama’ may not be good enough

    The president has disappointed many independents in the swing state, but they are even less happy with the Republican candidates.

    Dateline: Broomfield, Colo.

    (Bad photo of Obama included with the coverage. Looks like he’s got jaundice.)

  6. Today, they are reading aloud from the book written by the  “gal” who worked at the Kennedy White House and who has written an expose of the sexual exploits with which she was involved.

    Now, c&s, talk about sex a lot on their afternoon “legal

    show. Usually, their attitude is that they are “shocked, shocked,” at what others have done or reported, but it gives them an opportunity to describe in detail the event or the act or the picture.
