Rand Paul Thinks He's Above the Law?

Glad to know TSA is watching carefully for hypocritical, domestic, terrorists. What was Rand Paul hiding? A gun-toting head-stomper in his sock? I want to think it's the penile implant that completed his sex change (surely his creator didn't mistakenly put that whiny voice in a male body) but bet it was a ploy to give him reason to criticize the "invasion" of his body and privacy while he stomps on the rights of women to protect their bodies from his religion/political party - because that sounds like what a good hypocrite would do.

Personally, I don't think a TSA pat-down compares in the slightest to the intra-uterine ultrasound that some in his party are ordering women to undergo unnecessarily before having legal procedures that they don't like.

Senate pro forma sessions do not interrupt the recess

Dear Senator McConnell:

My condolences on what must be terribly humiliating for you. I hope you can take comfort in knowing that The American People have been protected from your nonsense.

"The Senate pro forma sessions in which no business was conducted, do not "in our opinion" interrupt the recess "in a manner that would preclude the president" from acting, Seitz wrote in her Jan. 6 opinion."

Warren Buffett To Sen. Mitch McConnell: Put Up Or Shut Up

Dear Senator McConnell:

I hope you will do both. It's about time for you to put up and shut up, since you can't seem to stop saying things that make little or no sense. Look forward to seeing what you do with this (as if I don't already know).

Senator McConnell Makes Urban Dictionary

Dear Senator McConnell:

Congratulations on making the Urban Dictionary. I would consider the entry an insult if it had been attached to someone whose goal is to improve conditions for the people he is supposed to represent. Since you have consistently vowed to undermine President Obama despite overwhelming support for him by The American People, I suppose congratulations are in order.


Any policy approved by Senator Mitch McConnell that is detrimental to the working or middle class people in the United States of America.
The factory I work in is being shut down and moved to China, due to McConnellism.

Please retire, immediately.

McConnell Claims New Agency Would ‘Bring Down The Banking System’ By Protecting Consumers

"The GOP may have decided this is a clever line of attack, but that doesn’t make it any more true." Seems to be the story of McConnell's life.

McConnell Claims New Agency Would ‘Bring Down The Banking System’ By Protecting Consumers: pLast week, Senate Republicans filibustered the nomination of former Ohio Attorney General Richard Cordray to be the first director of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. The GOP’s plan to justify their filibuster seems to be portraying the CFPB director as a “czar” — a favorite way for Republicans to deride federal officials they don’t like [...]/p

House Democrats Rush Floor Demanding Republicans Come Back To Work, GOP Cuts Off C-SPAN

Dear Senator McConnell:

Since you obviously can't keep up and repeatedly look like a liar, I present this video of obstructionism by your party.

House Democrats Rush Floor Demanding Republicans Come Back To Work, GOP Cuts Off C-SPAN: pHouse Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and a group of Democratic lawmakers took to an empty House floor today to demonstrate that they were willing to work while Republicans lawmakers are at home. “Where are the Republicans?” demanded Assistant to the Minority Leader James Clyburn (R-SC). Joining Pelosi and Clyburn were five other House Democrats [...]/p

Your Replacement, Senator McConnell

Dear Senator McConnell:

I am thrilled to introduce you to your replacement, who is everything you are not - honest, well-spoken, charismatic, young, exciting, informed, extremely well liked by everyone who meets him, pro people (boy, is that a selling point), able to read and comprehend 1,000 double-spaced, wide-margined pages without even needing a vacation in which to do so, motivating, trustworthy, and intelligent. I know it isn't nice to leave you hanging without a name, since there might be several people in the state who share these qualities. He just hasn't agreed to do this yet. Since I publish my letters to you, I'm putting this out to encourage others to look for someone they think would best represent The American People and let them know we will support them.


p.s. Still enjoying 2012 immensely. Laughter is the best medicine so you and the circus also known as the Republican Primary race have nearly healed me.

Happy 2012, Senator McConnell

Jamie Earl's photo.

This will be a great year for me and I sincerely wish the same for you. As with every year, I noticed that you were seldom smiling when the cameras caught you in 2011. And, unlike my Democratic representatives, you do not make yourself available to me in person, so I have no way of knowing if my perception of your consistent* unhappiness is legitimate. 

You may have noticed that I am an untraditional, outside-the-box person. In keeping with the consistent theme, I do not make resolutions at the start of a new year. Instead, I reflect on the past year, identify the things for which I am grateful as well as the disappointments. This year, I’m grateful to have survived the subarachnoid hemorrhage, that my grandchildren have reached ages where they know who I am and what I’m about, and that I truly love and trust President Obama and Congressman Yarmuth. Sadly, you remain a disappointment (see video below for example). But I am also optimistic by nature, so I still have hope that you will decide to retire. (I have given up any idea that you might change.)

Seriously, if I had your money and hated my job as much as you do, I would retire without hesitation. Psychic powers aside, I am positive you would be happier if you gave up your professional lying, obstructing, and taking the country hostage. That's really more work than reading a thousand page bill, double-spaced, with two-inch borders and we know how much you hate that. The work you choose to do instead of the work you were sent to Washington to do can't be good for your mental or physical health. Pretending today that you don't know that 63% of THE American People want more oversight, and refusing to admit that President Obama was right to call you on your obstruction and make a recession appointment for Richard Cardray, and allowing the word "arrogant" to come out of your mouth when speaking of your President has to be enough to destroy your physical health, unless your mental health is what causes you do do these things. Either way, you deserve a peaceful, happy 2012. 

Please, be kind to yourself and to THE American People and give it up. We all deserve better.

*Consistent is my theme for the year. I’m watching closely for consistency and ready to point out inconsistencies. It feels more positive than calling out hypocrisy. Either way, I plan to keep in touch.
