Is it sad that I wouldn’t put this past the GOP.

New GOP strategy involves reelecting Obama, making his life even more miserable

According to GOP sources, the decision to cede the 2012 election to Obama came after rank-and-file Republicans agreed that grinding the president down to nothing and pushing him to the brink of insanity was far more in line with the Republican Party’s core principles than actually controlling the White House, making laws, or governing the country.

A Joke from My Mother

A congressman was seated next to a little girl on an airplane so he turned to her and said, “Do you want to talk? Flights go quicker if you strike up a conversation with your fellow passenger.”

The little girl, who had just started to read her book, replied to the total stranger, “What would you want to talk about?”

"Oh I don’t know," said the congressman. "How about global warming, universal health care, or stimulus packages?" as he smiled smugly.

"Ok," she said. "Those could be interesting topics but let me ask you a question first. A horse, a cow, and a deer all eat the same stuff - grass - yet a deer excretes little pellets, while a cow turns out a flat patty, but a horse produces clumps. Why do you suppose that is?"

The legislator, visibly surprised by the little girl’s intelligence, thinks about it and says, “Hmmm, I have no idea.”

To which the little girl replied, “Do you really feel qualified to discuss global warming, universal health care, or the economy, when you don’t know shit?” She then went back to reading her book.

*This joke, like countless others, was forwarded to my email address by none other than my dear old Mom. Thanks for the laughs Mom.*

These kind of outbursts by public officials amaze me. Whether intended to be humorous or not, a public official should be held to a standard of conduct that is above inciting violence against peaceful protest. Good to see that Mother Jones reports that Jeff Cox was appropriately terminated by the Indiana Attorney General’s office.

Update: The Indiana attorney general’s office has confirmed to Mother Jones that Jeff Cox was terminated Wednesday.

How individuals in these types of positions think that they can respond to political unrest like this just blows my mind. I guess it’s a good reminder that social media is a powerful tool, and should be treated as such. Once it’s out there, there’s no taking it back.
