Best of the Web Today: Donk Fight! Republicans aren't the only ones with nasty intraparty disputes. BY JAMES TARANTO Liberal journalists love writing about divisions in the Republican Party--social conservatives vs. moderates, Tea Party vs. establishment, and so forth. That gives stories about Democratic infighting a man-bites-donk quality. One such story is a feud between Markos "Kos" Moulitsas, the Angry Left's answer to the Htoo twins, and Matt Bennett and Jim Kessler of Third Way, a Democratic think tank that describes itself as representing "Americans in the 'vital center.' " It started with a Moulitsas post in which he urged Koz Kidz, as readers of his eponymous website are called, to buck up. Headline: "Ten Years of Political Progress. And Yes, We've Made Progress." That seems obvious enough. A decade ago, Republicans controlled both houses of Congress and the dreaded George W. Bush was about to be re-elected. But he doesn't mean Democrats have made progress; he means left-wing Democrats have made ...
This is long overdue: On Thursday, a group of Democratic lawmakers proposed a law to establish a Code of Conduct for the Supreme Court. It’s surely to have Supreme Court Justices Thomas and Scalia quaking in their Tea Party boots because it would mean they would actually have to be independent of political and other influences. They would also have to have the appearance of independence. They would have to stay away from political activity. That part would be really hard. As it stands, this law would help guarantee that Supreme Court Justices are held to the same ethical standards we expect of other judges. Democratic Congresswoman Louise Slaughter, joined by Senators Chris Murphy, Richard Blumenthal and Sheldon Whitehouse, introduced the bill. It would make ethics mandatory, rather than an option left to the discretion of Justices like Thomas and Scalia. It would mean all the Justices would have to live by the sort of ethical standards that Justice Kagan applied when she recused herself from Arizona .. ...
Bill, My 28 years of political experience have taken me to all 50 states. And in all those years, in all those states, I don't believe I have ever seen a major party's candidate for governor in a swing state who has the extreme positions of Virginia GOP candidate Ken Cuccinelli. Cuccinelli is a Tea Party favorite and a right-wing extremist. How extreme? Let me count the ways: 1. He hates Social Security and Medicare. In his book he specifically described those benefits - benefits earned by every American who pays into them -- this way: "These programs make people dependent on government." 2. He hates birth control. He has said people should be willing to go to jail to stop Obamacare from covering contraception. Heard enough already from Cuccinelli and his right-wing friends? Click here to donate $3 or more to the DGA before our June 30 deadline – we’ll get it tripled and directly out to the field to help fight back against these radical extremists. 3. He thinks Justice Scalia is too liberal. He told a ...
FLASHBACK 2012: Democrat Senators Demand IRS Scrutinize Tea Party Groups In March of 2012 Democratic Senators sent a letter to the Internal Revenue Service demanding that Tea Party groups get extra scrutiny (harassment). The Democrats even threatened legislative action if the IRS did not act. From Sen. Chuck Schumer’s website: A group of seven Senate Democrats urged the Internal Revenue Service on Monday to impose a strict cap on the amount of political spending by tax-exempt, nonprofit groups. The senators said the lack of clarity in the IRS rules has allowed political groups to improperly claim 501(c)4 status and may even be allowing donors to these groups to wrongly claim tax deductions for their contributions. The senators promised legislation if the IRS failed to act to fix these problems. “We urge the IRS to take these steps immediately to prevent abuse of the tax code by political groups focused on federal election activities. But if the IRS is unable to issue administrative guidance in this ar ...
One of our brilliant Senators here in Rhode Island, Sheldon Whitehouse, says the "right wing outrage machine" is at it again over this IRS scandal. The same doofus who called people in Tea Party groups "a bunch of people running around in right wing militias and Aryan support groups." Whenever I hear that clip, I think of Edward Norton in Fight Club sitting at a support group with a bunch of depressed Aryans discussing their problems.
Sent this note to my two Senators (Blunt and McCaskill) this morning. After making America wait 23 minutes after 6 pm EDT, the President spoke for only 3 minutes and failed to apologize to the Tea Party and other groups for the abuse of his IRS. Clearly, he accepts no responsibility for their actions as head of the Executive branch. Furthermore, at least 9 Senators, all Democrats, wrote to the IRS on separate occasions encouraging just exactly the type of abuse that took place. These includes Sens. Max Baucus, Carl Levin, and Chuck Schumer. We implore you to make a motion of censure against those Senators who seem to have wanted the IRS to engage in the abuse they did. WE THE PEOPLE are fed up - we see corruption, lies, over-spending, and abuse everywhere in this Government. This will not be tolerated much longer.
