Christine O’Donnell Foils Commie Invasion!

Christine O'Donnell Foils Commie Invasion!

Thank God Delaware Republican Christine O’Donnell used her secret classified knowledge to stave off a Chinese Communist attack on the USA the last time she ran for the U.S. Senate, back in 2006. We don’t know exactly how she discovered that the heathen hordes were poised to pounce, but she did. How can we be sure? Because the candidate said so, and she never lies.

That was 2006, and China’s “carefully thought out and strategic plan to take over America” never materialized. How did Christine O’Donnell avert the Asian invasion? Was it … witchcraft?

Whatever. A grateful nation thanks you, Ms. O’Donnell.

Fear-Mongering for Fun and Profit 

The Republican National Committee is planning to raise money from the little guy by scaring the bejesus out of him. The more fear, the more funds for the GOP in the next election cycle. Politico‘s Ben Smith got the Powerpoint RNC Finance Director Rob Bickhart pitched to top GOP fundraisers in February. Ugly stuff.

“Exclusive: RNC document mocks donors, plays on ‘fear,'” Ben Smith, Politico.

“GOP: Nothing To Sell But Fear Itself,” Tim Dickinson, Rolling Stone.

Obama Wants to Kill your Grandma

Obama Wants to kill Your Grandma

Democrat health “reform” Nazis want to kill old people! It’s right there in their bill, Section 1233 of H.R. 3200. You want federal health care? Just sign off on your own compulsory euthanasia.

Who says? House Republican Leader John Boehner (R-OH) and Republican Policy Committee Chairman Thaddeus McCotter (R-MI) in a joint statement. Virginia Foxx (R-NC) said on the House floor that the bill would “force Seniors to be put to death by their government.”

Reality check: Section 1233 of HR 3200 allows doctors reimbursement for patient counseling once every five years on Advance Care Planning. It isn’t mandatory.
