We had a beautiful warm Fall weekend and we had fun at my Brother in Law’s 50th birthday party. However, the time went by way too fast and now it is Monday. Therefore, it is time once again for AWMD’s Monday Musings. There are plenty of news items to choose from after the weekend. There are so many possible issues to discuss, it is hard to choose just a few, but I will choose ones that I think you will be interested in. If my “Musing” interests you, let me know what you think. Hell, even if they don’t interest you, let me know! I am interested in your opinion too….as long as you agree with me!
It is truly inspiring to see a Teapublican actually not understand his own Hypocrisy! Our favorite Senator-Elect from Kentucky has already discarded one of his principal promises and he hasn’t even been sworn in! “One Tea Party hero, Senator-elect Rand Paul (R-KY), jumped on the anti-earmark bandwagon early, making “a ban on wasteful earmark spending in Washington D.C. one of the key points of his campaign” in March. Lambasting lawmakers who opt for “photo-ops with oversized fake cardboard checks,” Paul vowed to’ “dismantle the culture of professional politicians” ‘ even if he ‘ “ruffled a lot of establishment feathers” ‘ while doing it. But after joining the GOP flock on Election Day, Paul is singing a different tune. In a Wall Street Journal profile this weekend, Paul signaled an about-face on his earmark position, committing to “fight for Kentucky’s share of earmarks and federal pork.” http://thinkprogress.org/2010/11/08/paul-earmarks-pledg/ I wonder how this soon to be Senator will explain to the Tea Party Klan that he is actually a lying sack of crap? Or do you think they will even notice since Fox News won’t be announcing this latest piece of Teapublican Hypocrisy?
