Texas Republican State Convention
- So admittedly, Chris Matthews saying that Newt Gingrich looks like "a car bomber" is pretty weird. Mostly because everyone knows he looks like the living avatar of Ego. But how does Fox News handle it? Call President Obama a "skinny, ghetto crackhead."
- Now sure a Latino veteran was tasered to death in one of Sheriff Joe Arpaio's jails for no apparent reason, but good ol'Sheriff Joe has identified the real civil rights violations: "We don't go after anybody. Actually, they go after me. They're demonstrating in front of my building, calling me every kind of name. If you want to talk about civil-rights violations, what about that?" Of course talking about that, it would of course be First Amendment protected right to assemble and protest the government. Then again, why does it not surprise me that Sheriff Joe didn't know that?
Happy New Years!
