    So many of these right wingers are criminals. We need to enforce our laws against all of them. No exceptions. No excuses. Zero tolerance.

      We need to enforce all of our laws against everyone. No excuses. Zero tolerance. No “choosing not to enforce them.”

        Except there’s no logical way to enforce every law 100% of the time. You’d need 500 cops on every stretch of highway just to enforce speeding laws, for example. We do have to set priorities.

          Right wing domestic terrorism is a pretty high priority.

            Indeed it is

          Cops don’t “enforce” laws these days. They BREAK them. They work for corporations and politicians now, NOT THE PEOPLE.

    In fairness, he’s just following in Issa’s footsteps.

    Well isn’t that special…

    When typing these words on his computer does he fear a lightning strike or does he giggle and howl like the nut job that he is? God bless you….restore honor to the office…Your beliefs don’t make you a better person…..really? And yet he knew he had this charge out that he had to answer for and he still has the nerve to post this crap? I believe this says more about his IQ than it does for anything else.

    Another Koch Bros felony teabagger-elect bites the dust before 2015’s legislative session ever begins! Jezz any remaining GOP voters are again well proven to be the dimmest on Earth and in the known universe.

    October 2, 2014 Ohio Voters knew this Felon was on his way to the big house, but were too dumb to read and comprehend anything beyond ‘Jaysus loves Koch bros polluters.’ Ohio’s Ottawa County Prosecutor Mark “Mulligan had been sitting on the report since last spring, and it’s not clear what reasons he had for hiding it from the public.” A: Koch bros GOP!

    Actually, your behavior doesn’t make you a better person, it merely proves what kind of person you are. In his case, it shows he’s the ideal representative of the tea party.

    I’m just shocked.

    filthy little degenerate thieving dirty liar –
    oh, Teabagger?
    what’s the problem?

  9. Stan Ubeki November 21st, 2014 at 6:32 pm

    Does he really look like that, or do tebaggers not understand aspect ratio?

    • Tommy6860 November 21st, 2014 at 10:57 pm

      Well, they are flat earthers afterall :P.

    Another tea bagger set up by Obama, no doubt. He’s a rascally one, ain’t he?

    America gets who it votes for. The American Taliban. God, Guns, and Corporations, the American Way.

    For a second there, I thought I was reading about O.J.’s arrest.

    Looks like he interprets bringing “positive and lasting economic change”, “restor[ing] honor to the office” and “pride to the region” as stealing.
    Is this a new “core value” of the Pee Party?
