'Black Republican PAC' fronts for direct mail wingnut welfare

Originally published on Pam's House Blend. This has a North Carolina tie because it involves Rep. Robin Hayes (R-NC), who has received contributions from the "Black Republican PAC."

I recently received a direct mail piece from a Blender that is unbelievable. It is from an entity called the "Black Republican PAC," headed up by Edward Cousar. Here is a taste of what's in the mailing:

"Because what we conservatives need right now more than anything else is someone and some group who can speak the truth about Obama without being intimidated by the "racist" label.

I am that man and Black Republican PAC is that group.

I'm dedicated to exposing Barack Obama's liberalism before it's too late for America.

It goes on for four pages of garbage. I decided to surf around and see who Cousar was and what this organization was about. What I found was revealing; a strategy that not only uses black Republicans as a cover for the above, but is at its base a group white GOP operatives using funds raised by this and other web of PACs to line their incestuous direct mail companies' coffers.

Elizabeth Dole Sucks Face with Ted Stevens

This officially lands in the "gross me out" category.

First, Ted Stevens gives Elizabeth Dole $10,000 for her campaign. Second, Ted Stevens gets indicted. Third, Kay Hagan calls on Elizabeth Dole to return the tainted money she received from Ted Stevens. Fourth, Elizabeth Dole returned part of the money she received from Ted Stevens....and then......

What happened next should not be viewed by those with frail digestive systems. However, it's hard for most humans to turn away from a train wreck.....soooo...here ya go.

Consumer-Driven Healthcare Diva’s

Cross posted from The Progressive Pulse.

It's been clear for a long time that the two-tiered American healthcare system rations care. People who have insurance get medical care…often very good medical care. People who are uninsured…don't.

Now it's time to add a third tier…vanity patients with cash in hand. These pampered prima donna's may be the canary's in the coal mine of the American healthcare system. The New York Times had an excellent article this week which focused on the practice of Dermatology. Many modern day Dermatology practices are divided into two groups: Cosmetic Dermatology (Botox, tattoo removal, hair transplants, etc) vs. Medical Dermatology (skin cancers, psoriasis, skin manifestations of systemic disease, etc).

257,000 New Registered Voters in NC - 240,000 are NOT Republicans

That's all. That's all I had to say. Let that sink in. There are 257,000 new registered voters in this state since January and only 17,000 of them registered as Republicans.

Wow. Warms the cockles of your heart, doesn't it?

Here's the article from the Asheville Citizen-Times.

After dark

Soon silence will have passed into legend. Man has turned his back on silence. Day after day he invents machines and devices that increase noise and distract humanity from the essence of lie, contemplation,mediation ... tooting, howling, screeching, booming, crashing, whistling, grinding and trilling bolster his ego. His anxiety subsides. His inhuman voice spreads monstrously like a gray vegetation.

Elizabeth Dole's Residency Problem

Is Elizabeth Hanford Dole a qualified registered voter with a permanent residence in North Carolina or is Elizabeth Dole's permanent primary residence at the Watergate in our nation's capital?

The Watergate is much more than the name of a famous hotel where an even more famous burglary took place in the early 70’s.

"Watergate is a cooperative apartment complex located in North West Washington, D.C.. The complex includes three apartment buildings (East, West & South), two office buildings, a hotel, and a shopping mall.

The Watergate has been described as a “city within a city.” Most apartments are extravagant and have a price tag to match with many two-bedroom units going for well over $2 million. Winston and Winston Real Estate have several listings at 700 New Hampshire Avenue NW offering virtual tours. There are even a few listed that are down the hall from some of the Watergate’s most famous residents, Bob and Elizabeth Hanford Dole.

The Doles have been residents of The Watergate since their marriage in 1975. Bob Dole has owned apartment #112 – a first-floor, one-bedroom since before the Republicans burglarized the Watergate Hotel in 1972.

More than a quarter century later, the Doles found themselves neighbors with Monica Lewinsky and her mother during the famous blow job and blue dress scandal. After the Lewinsky duo vacated their apartment, the Doles purchased it to enlarge their living quarters.
