Selective Outrage: Rock the Slut Vote Edition

Rush Limbaugh has been lambasted for referring to Sandra Fluke as a ‘slut’.   The use of this word enraged feminists (read the liberal left) and birthed the still unsubstantiated, “GOP war on women”.

While poking around on some democrat sites yesterday I came upon what I first took to be a ruse, a prank, perpetrated by The Onion perhaps.   But oh no my dear readers, I assure you that this very real.

I give you: ROCK THE SLUT VOTE

Check it out y’all there is even a facebook group which as of today, has been liked by, what I presume to be 854 “sluts”.

And have no fear the Rock the Slut Vote twitter account is here!

If you would like to weigh in on what the Rock the Slut Vote theme song should be, better respond to this tweet before your vote goes uncounted….

Are all of you formerly angry women now happy to wrap your arms around such an insulting term?  Is this some attempt to ‘take back the night slut’?

I see you’re also selling t-shirts.  Are you profiting off of the term now too?  If so I think you may owe Mr. Limbaugh some royalties or at the very least a thank you note.  Good luck sluts ladies!

Oh and just in case there was any doubt about which party the Rock the Slut Vote contingent backs, this map, from their site should clear up any confusion.

From Cross-Hairs to Kicking Ass

When Congresswoman Gabbie Giffords and 18 others were shot by lone lunatic Jared Lee Loughner, the media and democrat politicians quickly rushed to microphones to blame Sarah Palin. Why blame Palin? Because she had posted, on her website a political map that highlighted “targeted districts”, with cross-hairs and one of those districts was Giffords’.

Surely this picture is what set off the shooting spree of a madmen right? I don’t see the correlation, but democrats had no problem making the connection. They would have us believe that violent imagery and rhetoric is dangerous.

Based on their own standard, in the spirit of everybody playing by the same rules, and everyone getting a fair shake, I believe it is necessary to point out that the DNC has been operating “Kicking-Ass Blog” since 2003.

Here are a few screen grabs for the DNC’s website

Notice the date on this – last updated January 6 2012

This link was what originally tipped me off to the existence of “Kicking Ass Blog”. I stumbled on to it yesterday (April 5, 2012) while doing a search for news on DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s visit to Philadelphia.

DNC Chairwoman Wasserman Schutlz was in my area for an event with Congresswoman Allyson Schwartz (D-PA).
” these women were united in outrage that so many members of the Republican Party—from presidential candidate Mitt Romney to Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Corbett—are going after their rights and their health.”

“United in outrage” says the article I found by clicking the link entitled – DNC: Kicking Ass – Blog. What happens with you add outrage to kicking ass ? I expect that they will try to brush this off as a simple play on words, based upon the imagery of the democrat donkey kicking its feet up in the air. But remember we all must play by the same rules and when you measure this against the same standards the democrats demanded from republicans in the wake of the Loughner shooting/cross-hair ad, this name should be considered outrageous, violent and potentially dangerous.

I expect DNC Chairwoman, Debbie Wasserman Schultz to come out and denounce the usage of the term “Kick-Ass Blog” and demand that, that phraseology be removed from the site immediately.

Do Democrats Ever Pay Their Bills?

barrack with the cash

With a treasury secretary that doesn’t pay his taxes and numerous other cabinet appointees withdrawing over similar ‘oversights’, I’m not surprised to learn that the DNC doesn’t pay their bills either.  The Chicago Sun Times reported on Friday that the DNC has yet to pay the city for the Obama victory bash it threw back on November 4th.  The outstanding balance is $1.74 million and with the city of Chicago facing over a $50 million budget shortfall, that money could prove helpful in saving jobs, you know that little ‘three letter word‘ President Obama made one of the cornerstones of his campaign.  Am I expected to believe that the same DNC that spent over $760 million dollars on the Obama campaign doesn’t have $1.74 million to pay for the huge pat on the back party it threw?  According to opensecrets.org the Obama campaign as of December 31, 2008 still had over $15 million in campaign contributions in their possession, so why has this debt gone unpaid?  If this behavior were practiced by anyone outside of the government they would be thrown in jail.  Somehow these dead beats not only avoid prosecution, they’re now lecturing us on fiscal responsibility.  Ridiculous.
