libranoelrose: I like the salm8n


It's great, but not quite as awesome as the salm9n, the salm10n or the salm11n.

/the salm12n is too fishy for my tastes

WTF Indeed: Who does this guy think he is?! A Chicago politician?


You joke, but based on Brownback's "Kansas' state bond ratings have been given a lower rating thanks to Obama's policies" argument what are the chances Brownback's response if David Kensinger is charged is to claim this is evidence that Brownback's secret investigation on whether Rahm Emanuel was involved in arranging pay-to-play deals for Obama is obviously close to bearing fruit if Obama is willing to orchestrate a counter -nvestigation of his former chief of staff as a response.

Is that like claiming the WTC Towers' supports couldn't have melted from the jet fuel alone, but the chemicals in the spray tanks could've been a contributing factor?

Nah, Brownback is still fine with drones as long as they are being used against "those" people.

Yes. Obviously Citizen Brownback had to engage in some Super Capitalism to combat all that Evil Socialism coming from Washington these days.

Lost Thought 00: My sympathy for that self avowed racist is nil


Sam Brownback may be a shill for the Koch brothers, believe poor people are morally deficient, despise public education, and be a flaming catholic religious fanatic, but I am unaware of anything that might classify him as racist. Of course, in Kansas he may never have had the chance.

As long as teh libs got it stuck to them, I don't care what Brownback does.

YOu stick em Brownie!  Stick emmmmmmmmmm!

You know what, I take it back, that shiat stain isn't the racist I was thinking about from the 2008 Presidential campaign also-rans. I confused him with the self-avowed racist Tom Tancredo, who also got destroyed in that campaign. I apologize

Chemtrails lower the melting point of steel dude: study it out!

/my favorite Truther argument is that when the structural integrity of the building gave out it collapsed faster than freefall, proving it didn't collapse on it's own but was rather a controlled demolition. Unless you think said controlled demolition was done with giant underground magnets I don't think you have figured out why occam's razor says you dun goof'd on the math rather than physics proving it didn't fall naturally.

Really. I grew up about 50 miles from where he came from. And I'm 3 days older than he is. Don't think I'm too racist, but find myself making too many unwarranted conclusions about people who look different than I do. But in the words of Avenue Q http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RovF1zsDoeM. I don't think Kansas are as racist as what I saw in Louisiana (W. Monroe) in the 60's and 70's, and compared with people I have known living around the midwest and visiting other areas, they're not too bad until you get out in western KS. Still and all, Brownback is the stain in the underware of Kansas politics, and I will not consider moving back to Kansas until the politics is no longer dominated by those maroons.

I think I speak for everyone when I say Sam Brownback and everyone who voted for him can fornicate themselves with an iron stick.

"I'm not hearing what anybody's saying that's criminal activity"

Note that he doesn't deny there was any criminal activity.  It's almost like he's saying, "Hell yes there was criminal activity, but I'm implying that you haven't found the proof of it yet."

Also:

"We try to run things at a very high standard. We try to bid out most state contracts."

Funny use of the word "try" in this context.  When was the last time a politician, confronted with charges of corruption, responded with, "Well gosh darn it, we  try to be honest."  He's going to get those VIN numbers over to you just as soon as he can.

I suspect that beads of perspiration are breaking out on his brow.

Nevermind that his chief of staff resigned, you can tell so much from Brownbacks's own words in the TFA:

"We try to run things at a very high standard," he said. "We try to bid out most state contracts. And do it purposely so that you get the lowest bid, but also so that you don't have the ethical questions raised about it."

Translation:
- we don't run things at a very high standard
- we don't bid out most state contracts
- some contracts are just gifts

Brownback is a piece of crap opportunist that is tossing Kansas into the toilet in order to have some talking points for another try at a presidential bid. His radical policies and political bullying have left us behind all surrounding states in all variables of the economic recovery.

He has no problem with being double teamed by the two Kochs. He enjoys it.

Also, we need some kind of urban dictionary entry for "Brownbacking"
