Well, Here’s What Gets You Thrown Off Rightwing Radio

May 31, 2016 By: Juanita Jean Herownself Category: Uncategorized

Glenn Beck.

Conservative host Glenn Beck has been suspended by SiriusXM satellite radio for agreeing with an author who asked hypothetically “what patriot will step up” to remove Republican Donald Trump from office if he’s elected president and oversteps his authority.

Hey, wait a minute.  They say that crapola all the damn time about President Obama and all they get for that is a raise.

He off the radio for a whole week.  A. Whole. Week.  And Sirius says they are “evaluating” Beck’s place in their line up.  They did not mention a handslap, but that’s probably on the table, too.

However, this isn’t the first time Beck has been in trouble.

Beck created a subscription website and a syndicated radio network after leaving his Fox News television program in 2011. Beck’s show on Fox ended amid a boycott of advertisers after Beck said Democratic President Barack Obama had “a deep-seated hatred for white people.”

You know, it doesn’t seem fair.  You hire a guy who you know is a loud mouthed bully and then you fire him for acting like a loud mouthed bully.

Thanks to BB for the heads up.

Yeah, that’s close to my house.  Alligators and me have us a deal.  I don’t eat them; they don’t eat me.  So far, so good.

Because They Don’t Watch TeeVee

Okay, this is weird but it’s the truth.

Trump supporters with ties to Dr. Ben Carson and Newt Gingrich have founded Amish PAC, which aims to launch the most ambitious get-out-the-vote efforts among the devout religious sect to date.

Newt Gingrich and Ben Carson are going after the Amish vote for Donald Trump.

I know.  It kinda takes your breath away.

They counted and there are 70,000 Amish in Ohio and Pennsylvania.  A whopping 13% of them voted in the last presidential election, mostly for Romney.

“I’ve got to say, I don’t know that we’re going to change voting habits drastically,” Ben Walters, a fundraiser for the PAC, conceded in an interview with Politico on Friday. “But we can only help them.”

“In Florida in 2000, it came down to a couple polling places,” he added. “What if that happened in Ohio or Pennsylvania? It could.”

Yeah, and you’re going to convince Amish people to vote for the first time Trump/Gingrich – a pair with 6 marriages between them.  It could happen.

Thanks to Bryan for the heads up.

Okay, let’s contemplate over who Bill Crystal might find “impressive.”  Okay, okay, let’s don’t.

Here’s my probable list of who the Republicans could run as an independent and beat Trump:

  1. The Batchelor (any of them)
  2. Uncle Si
  3. Chloe Kardashian
  4. Ozzie Osbourne
  5. Chef Gordon Ramsay
  6. Simon Cowell
  7. Snooki
  8. A Real Housewife from anywhere.
  9. Omarosa
  10. RuPaul

There ya go …


Well, Dang It

I have been to many, many political conventions, and this has never happened.

I have made fun of the Looneytarians more times that I can count, but I gotta hand them this.  A candidate for chairman of the party used his speaking time to dance down to his panties.  On damn C-SPAN teevee.

But the best was when three and a half minutes into the strip tease, one of the conventioneers took to the microphone and yelled, “Get off the stage.  You’re making an ass of yourself.”  just as the dancer leans over and sticks his hiney to the camera.  It was convention magic!

And silly you thought politics couldn’t get more weird this year.
