    I wonder of Lardy had the scoop on this one:

    Herman Cain Endorses Allen West For Vice President

    Herman Cain called on Mitt Romney to choose Rep. Allen West (R-FL) as the GOP’s vice presdiential nominee on a conservative talk radio show in Nashville Monday.

    http://livewire.talkingpointsmemo.com/entries/herman-cain-endorses-allen-west-for-vice-presdient

    • kstreet67 says:

      Hmmm…it WOULD be interesting to see LardAss’ take on that one, YC!

      • YankeeClipper says:

        I went over to the Fat One’s “News site”; not only is he claiming one million visitors in March but me being there reminded me of a movie title….Nightmare on Elm Street. I gotta give you credit though Larry, you have the most disgusting, confusing and tasteless “news site” I’ve ever seen!

    • Dennis says:

      Allen West as VP??!! Good grief, the Mayans were not joking about the end of civilization….

  7. YankeeClipper says:

    West stands as much chance of being on a national ticket as much as Uncle Hermie and the Fat One. If by some lunacy Romney selects West. Mittens will have to deal with this:

    Iraq interrogation incident

    While serving in Taji, Iraq, West received information from an intelligence specialist about a reported plot to ambush him and his men.[6] The alleged plot reportedly involved Yahya Jhodri Hamoodi, a civilian Iraqi police officer.[6] West, who was not responsible for conducting interrogations in Iraq and had never conducted nor witnessed one, had his men detain Hamoodi.[6] In the process of detaining Mr. Hamoodi, soldiers testified that Hamoodi appeared to reach for his weapon and needed to be subdued.[6] Hamoodi was beaten by four soldiers from the 220th Field Artillery Battalion on the head and body.[10] West then fired his pistol near Hamoodi’s head,[6] after which Hamoodi provided West with names and information, which Hamoodi later described as “meaningless information induced by fear and pain.”[6] At least one of these suspects was arrested as a result, but no plans for attacks or weapons were found.[6] West said “At the time I had to base my decision on the intelligence I received. It’s possible that I was wrong about Mr. Hamoodi.”[6]

    West was charged with violating articles 128 (assault) and 134 (general article) of the Uniform Code of Military Justice. During a hearing held as part of an Article 32 investigation in November 2003, West stated, “I know the method I used was not right, but I wanted to take care of my soldiers.”[10] The charges were ultimately referred to an Article 15 proceeding rather than court-martial, at which West was fined $5,000.[6] LTC West accepted the judgment and retired with full benefits in the summer of 2004. Asked if he would act differently under similar circumstances again, West testified, “If it’s about the lives of my soldiers at stake, I’d go through hell with a gasoline can.”[11]

    • Dennis says:

      What! Are you telling me that Allen West is more nutty than a bucket of bolts in a washing machine? Well, gee, he could help boost Mitt’s macho factor (as well as bring in the biker club vote). He has the Tea Party in his back pocket and the fundies sewed to his hips. And oh gee golly, I bet he would do wonders for the women’s vote. After all, that online biker magazine he does a column for has a centerfold (well, this is the GOP mind set). Yep, he has it all.

      BTW, and sad to say, but that Iraq incident would simply play as a heroic moment among the mad dog red meat and state crowd.

    • kstreet67 says:

      Good research YC. I have written extensively about that deranged SOB, Allen West.

      He got off easy in the Iraq incident. He was allowed to RETIRE from the service WITH FULL BENEFITS! WTF?

      • LongTimeLurker says:

        So when I look at guys like Barack Obama and Alan West and a host of others in politics I often wonder how they got to where they are and how I compare. I’d say in intelligence I’m smarter than Alan West and about as smart as Barack Obama – about an 8.5 on a scale of 10. In morality I’m about 5.1 in a scale of 10. (I don’t like to hold myself out as any holier than the other guy, but I still think I am – at least a litttle). In bravery, I’d say I’m about a 9. (I can live with that. Pardon the pun.) In sensitivity, I’m about a 10. I shed tears at movies or when others suffer sometimes. I cry every time I see “Gladiator”.

        Why am I writing all this? I don’t know. (I’ve been drinking.)

      • It’s a crying shame. I know his type. They consider people to consider them powerful and brave when all they ever do is side with the powerful.

        It’s funny really. I notice I honestly get a real visceral desire to catch him alone and attack him with my fists and feet.

        • LongTimeLurker says:

          Typo – I meant to say “They EXPECT people to consider etc.” I got a little punchy (pardon the pun).

  8. YankeeClipper says:

    This one’s for you, LTL.

  9. kstreet67 says:

    I swear this sounds like Zimmerman has lifted Larry Sinclair’s scam and now calls it his own:

    Think Progress:

    “On the website — therealgeorgezimmerman.com — Zimmerman solicits donations to support his “living expenses and legal defense.” He writes: “I have created a Paypal account solely linked on this website as I would like to provide an avenue to thank my supporters personally and ensure that any funds provided are used only for living expenses and legal defense, in lieu of my forced inability to maintain employment. I will also personally, maintain accountability of all funds received.”

    • YankeeClipper says:

      Wait for the announcement: “LS News Group has been retained by the Zimmerman family for the position of Consultant and Fundraising Adviser.” Too bad the flublishing company went belly up, I’m sure Lard would be in there pushing Zimmerman to write his side of the story and the publishing company will run with it….

  10. LongTimeLurker says:

    Everybody’s gonna like is one. 🙂

    Today’s Joke

    A wealthy man and his wife were going to a function, so they decided to give the butler the night off. However, a couple of hours later the wife was bored, so she left the party and went home, only to find the butler sitting alone at the table. She ordered the butler upstairs to her bedroom, where she locked the door. “Jeeves,” she commanded, “take off my hat.” Jeeves promptly obeyed. “Now, Jeeves,” she says, “take off my dress.” He obeyed. “Now, Jeeves, please remove my underwear.” Breaking into a nervous sweat, Jeeves complied. “Now Jeeves,” the wife said, “if I should ever catch you wearing my clothes again…”

    Here’s one of the early preemptive strikes on Obama from the Romney camp. In anticipation of Romney being asked a lot of questions about his Mormonism they are raising questions they plan to throw at Obama about Reverand Wrigfht to redirect the attention.

      I think with the Obama people they need to be more concerned about information concerning those Swiss bank accounts. BTW, with all of his money why would Romney want a lousy low paying job as president?

      • LongTimeLurker says:

        Can you imagine Swiss bank accounts? How the hell could Mittens think he would not be asked about them? Swiss accounts? Why not American accounts? Does he love America or not? Or is he trying to hide something?
        How many of YOU have Swiss bank accounts? See how out of touch he is?

        And he’s PROUD of it!. But he’s HIDING it! Flip flopping as always!!!

    Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s Legal Bulldog Faces Disbarment

    NICK R. MARTIN APRIL 10, 2012, 5:52 AM

    If things went differently, Andrew Thomas might have had a bright career in Arizona politics.

    In six years as the top prosecutor in Maricopa County, he stood side-by-side with Sheriff Joe Arpaio and earned a reputation as an aggressive and ambitious politician. A pair of conservative warriors in a Republican stronghold, the two teamed up to push for tougher treatment of illegal immigrants and to pursue what they saw as widespread corruption by local government officials.

    But somewhere in the process, according to ethics investigators who scrutinized his actions in recent years, Thomas became obsessed with his political enemies. With Arpaio’s help, he targeted them with criminal investigations, had some of them arrested and some charged with crimes. The evidence he and Arpaio used in the process was often questionable. The charges rarely stuck.

    Sinclair News Called It Apr 4th: Santorum Campaign Ends Today
    April 10, 2012
    By Lawrence Sinclair

    “This Presidential race is over for me, we are suspending our campaign effective today,” say’s former PA Senator Rick Santorum. It is being reported that Santorum did call and concede to MA Gov. Mitt Romney before making his public announcement ending his campaign.

    Rick Santorum campaign for the GOP nomination for President of the United States will end today. As this article is being written Rick Santorum is about to take to the podium to formally announce the suspension of his campaign. Sinclair News reported last Wednesday (April 4, 2012) that Santorum was in negotiations with GOP power brokers to bring his campaign to an end with some place within the GOP and even possibly in a Romney administration.

    BREAKING NEWS Rick Santorum: Marching Onward or Negotiating Graceful Surrender?

    After listening to former PA Senator Rick Santorum’s speech last night one would think the PA Senator was in the GOP Presidential race til the bitter end. Yet after losing to GOP front-runner & establishment candidate Mitt Romney Tuesday in Maryland, Wisconsin and the District of Columbia, Sinclair News has been told by GOP insiders that Santorum is involved in deal making with the GOP power brokers which will result in Santorum’s withdrawing from the GOP nomination fight before his home state of Pennsylvania’s GOP Primary. Sinclair News sent emails to the Santorum campaign manager and insider’s asking for comment or confirmation or denial of the reports. As has been the case with the Santorum campaign, Sinclair News emails have been read but no response has been received.

    It appears the end of the Santorum campaign marks a victory for the GOP Establishment in their quest to crown Mitt Romney the GOP Nominee. Now the question becomes what role Santorum will play in the 2012 GOP race for the White House?

    • Dennis says:

      Oh for crying out loud. Everybody knew he was on the way out. It was just a matter of waiting for a moment of clarity to kick in. BTW, does Lardo have Zimmerman hiding out in the wide load (and I bet Lardo likes looking at Zimmerman’s wide load).

      • YankeeClipper says:

        Now Dennis; you KNOW Lardy is the only newsie to have said it was coming. Krauthammer’s and Will’s saying/writing it weeks ago doesn’t mean a damn thing. The only words that matter are the Fat One’s.

        BTW, I wonder why Lardy hasn’t commented about Cain’s proposal of Allen West for Veep. Sinclair DID endorse West for Congress, writing a glowing entry about how wonderful West was when they met. And our need for people like West in the Congress. I wonder if Sinclair is supporting Joe the Bummer.

        • Dennis says:

          LardAss supporting Joe the Bummer? Well, they are both stupid and have failed at everything they have tried to do so….I bet LardBrain is printing the posters even as we speak.

    It;’s becoming clear; a lot of people in Sanford do not want this case to go to trial. If the DA offers zimmermam a deal, he will be under trmendous pressure by highly placed city officials to take the deal Because in court all the skeletons come tumbling out of all the closets

    ————————————————————————————————-
    I’d like to hear anyone’s thoughts on this guy’s hypothesis.

    BTW…I had never thought about the corruption the city wants to and needs to hide until this comment. In retrospect this sounds very plausible.

    • Dennis says:

      Anything is possible down in Florida. The swamps have more than just old ballots from 2000 floating out there.

    • YankeeClipper says:

      I’m certain there are people that want this whole issue to go away. Sorry, ain’t going to happen. No matter what the Special Prosecutor decides, there are going to be angry people. Add election year to the mix and BANG!

      If Z’man has fled the country, it won’t be good for him. But, perhaps he’s in “protective custody” some where. Maybe some rich wing nut has him in hiding.

      I read a wing nut post suggesting a show down between the Black woman serving as Special Prosecutor (she’s a Republican) and the President is in the making. Under this theory; she declines to charge Zimmerman, Obama gets involved by his response to a reporters question about her decision. No matter what the President says, the GOP will use it as an example of his dividing the country. Victory in Nov!

      Ahhh, wing nuttery!

      Touching – but sad and kinda scary.

      I don’t want to reach the point where I have to live in a nursing home. Life is good, but a nursing home isn’t life. I hope to live into my nineties w/o assistance and die in my sleep or doing something heroic or adventurous or silly (but not stupid.)

        I’m with you on that LTL. No nursing home for me. I intend to be self-sufficient until the end…

      • kstreet607 says:

        However, the video reminded me of Robert DinNiro’s part in “Awakening”. Only the doctors in the movie used medicine and the Occupational Therapist in the video used music. The man was borderline catatonic and the music gave him a new and uplifting lease on life.

    Today’s Joke

    A drunk goes into a bar. “Drinks for everyone, and one for you too.” he says to the bartender. The bartender serves everyone, including himself. “That’ll be fifty dollars, please.” I don’t have any money.” says the drunk. The bartender takes him outside and beats him up.

    The next day the drunk comes back. “Drinks for everyone, including the bartender.” The bartender thinks to himself, he wouldn’t be so stupid to do the same thing again – he must have money this time, so he serves the drinks. But when he asks him to pay, the drunk tells him that he doesn’t have any money again. The bartender takes him outside and gives him a savage beating.

    The next night, the same drunk comes in and tells the bartender to get a drink for everyone. “And not one for me tonight?” asks the bartender. “Nah,” says the drunk. “You get violent when you drink.”

    (But not me. :))

      At least Democrats are not members of the terrorist wing of the Republican party better known as the Teabagger Party, an organization known to have sabotaged the United States’ Moody’s credit rating by holding the nation’s financial obligations hostage to fringe demands by their extremist members.

    • LongTimeLurker says:

      I read similar comments over at Drudge and had to stop in disgust after just a few glances. I’m wondering whether all those kinds of comments are authentic or whether jerks like the Koch Bros are paying people to defile the news media.

      Allen West will be (by his standards) restrained and measured in his response and will refrain from references to Frank’s sexual orientation. He hopes by pretending to be in control of himself he might increase his chances of gaining the opportunity to lick Romney’s high class ass.

  29. YankeeClipper says:

    This is an old story, different big mouth pushing it. During impeach Bill craziness, the Freak Republic had a list of approximately the same number of Congress critters. Michelle Bachmann made the charge on Chris Matthews’s program last year. Deep down, All nutters believe this line, they just don’t discuss it in public
