Another Republican Bites the Dust

So another holier than thou Republican gets caught with his zipper down. South Carolina Governor Mark Sanford admits today to an affair with a woman from Argentina.

One has to ask how much longer can the Republican Party continue to denigrate Gays for wanting to marry while party leaders keep getting caught with their zipper down.

Last week it was Senator John Ensign (R-NV), this week it's Sanford. We're starting a new feature today called Republican Zipper Hall of Shame to document all the marital abuses. The first two names are going to be Sanford and Ensign with Honorable Mention to Newt Gingrich, Rudy Giuliani, John McCain, David Vitter, and our personal favorite Larry "Wide Stance" Larry Craig.

Insurance Companies Cancelling Sick Patients

This important viral video needs to get out as soon as possible to the whole country. Please pass it around and let the country understand what assholes we have running our insurance companies. Watch these insurance execs squirm and evade as they are questioned. There is something reptilian and oily about their responses. From Nancy Pelosi's Youtube page.....

Today, the Energy and Commerce Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations held a hearing entitled "Terminations of Individual Health Policies by Insurance Companies." The hearing examined the practice of "post-claims underwriting," which occurs when insurance companies cancel individual health insurance policies after providers submit claims for medical services rendered.

The Committee conducted an investigation into the
practice of health insurance rescission, and the results were alarming. Over the past five years, almost 20,000 individual insurance policyholders have had their policies rescinded by the three insurance companies who testified today: Assurant, UnitedHealth Group, and WellPoint.

Remember, please pass this video around. Let's show the world what kind of creatures are running the single most costly industry to the average American, medical insurance. The only way to get to single payer health care, is to force congress to act. If this video doesn't piss some people off, I don't know what would.

Senator John "Family Values" Ensign Announces Affair

Our very own Senator John Ensign (R-NV) today acknowledged and affair with another woman.

This would be the same John Ensign who called for Larry Craig to resign over his alleged hijinks's in a Minneapolis airport. And the same John Ensign who called for Bill Clinton to resign over the Monica Lewinsky affair.

But it should, at the very least, re-open the longstanding debate over how much attention should be paid to a politician's personal life. And when it comes to this topic, Ensign's own record of denouncing the affairs and misconducts of other pols could come back to haunt him.

Nothing like another Republican hypocrite.

The Senator found Bill's actions to be embarrassing....

During the height of the scandal surrounding Bill Clinton's affair with Monica Lewinsky, the Nevada Republican denounced the president's conduct as "an embarrassing moment for the country."

'I think we have to feel very sad for the American people and Hillary and Chelsea,' he said.

Weeks later, Ensign would call on Clinton to resign. "I came to that conclusion recently, and frankly it's because of what he put his whole Cabinet through and what he has put the country through," he was quoted saying at the time. "He has no credibility left," he added.

It goes without saying Ensign is a big supporter of the Defense of Marriage Act and voted for the Marriage Amendment.

Needless to say, the Senator has no intentions of resigning, even with his doe-eyed wife Darlene standing by his side.

AMA Weighs In On Public Healthcare

Surprise, surprise, the American Medical Association has come out against public financed healthcare.

"Today's New York Times story creates a false impression about the AMA's position on a public plan option in health care reform legislation. The AMA opposes any public plan that forces physicians to participate, expands the fiscally-challenged Medicare program or pays Medicare rates, but the AMA is willing to consider other variations of the public plan that are currently under discussion in Congress. This includes a federally chartered co-op health plan or a level playing field option for all plans. The AMA is working to achieve meaningful health reform this year and is ready to stand behind legislation that includes coverage options that work for patients and physicians."

I wonder if they will pull out the old Ronald Reagan record railing against "Socialized Medicine" again? My favorite part is where he talks about medicine being the precursor down the road to socialism.

Our old friend Fred Willard provides the solution to our healthcare woes...

I think even the insurance companies would approve.

Obama and Don't Ask, Don't Tell

With the Supreme Court refusing to hear the appeal of the decision to uphold DADT, one has to ask what ever happened to Barack "Fierce Advocate" Obama?

Apparently, we are fair weather friends when he needs votes, and a bother when he doesn't.

Candidate Obama came out strongly against DADT while running for President, but President Obama gives lip service and nothing else.

The biggest slap in the face to the LGBT Community that has been advocating for a change, is the Obama White House sending a lawyer to the Supreme Court to support the current policy. WTF!

I for one refuse to be treated with this much contempt. It's high time the Obama administration jumped on the same band-wagon as the rest of the country. Recent polls show the American public is ready to repeal Don't Ask, Don't Tell. When will Obama show leadership on this issue?

Current polling shows where America is at in their support for repealing DADT that has cost us over 13,000 highly trained military personel since it's passage in the Clinton administration.

  • 69% of all Americans
  • 58% of Republicans
  • 58% of Conservatives
  • 60% of Church Goers
Gallup Poll May 7-13

Rachael Maddow said it best on her show last night

Failure by President Obama to meaningfully address this issue may become NMNS (no money, no support) in 2010. It takes more than votes to win elections.

And, So It Begins

Just like the title says, I'm now starting my first blog. Those of you who know me personally, know I love to rant.

Over the next couple of weeks, expect to see many changes to this blog. There are many features I can't wait to introduce you to.

The one thing I promise is plenty of ranting and raving about Las Vegas, Nevada, and American politics and the lying liars who we elect to represent out interests. As you know, I don't have any problem with calling them out. Now in addition to letters to the editor and letters to politicians, I will be posting my opinions for all to see.

So be sure to check out my new blog on a regular basis for fun, frivolity, rants, and raves.
