  1. Michele Bachmann:  On Meet the Press this weekend she talked about how she was “hopeful” the government shutdown would be avoided, stating “Well, I’m hopeful, I don’t think anyone wants to see the government shutdown.” However, like most GOP clowns, she opposed a bill to extend funding because it didn’t remove funding for Planned Parenthood. Message:  It’s my way or no way and I am trying to appease the Tea Party and Moderates to hold on to my seat. (source)
  2. John McCain:  “I would also point out that if you’d emptied that house there, if you’d left a computer there or an iPad or an iPhone, those are built in the United States of America.” Message: I am a fossil who refuses to admit almost nothing is made in the US any more. (source)
  3. Sylvia Allen and Arizona:  State Representative Sylvia Allen wants to give Jan Brewer permission to create her own personal army at any time and for what ever reason she wants. Message:  We really don’t like Mexicans. (source)
  4. Governor John Kasich: Removes two opposing GOP members to pass SB5 through committee for House vote. Message: What you want doesn’t matter. (source)
  5. Governor Scott Walker:Reducing Medicaid while increasing funeral funding for poor, blackmailing dems to come home by threatening layoffs, and being childish. Message: You need to come home and pass my bill the longer you stay gone the longer people have to look at it and the less chance it will be passed. Also; I am a cry baby. (source)
  6. John “jobs” Boehner:  Helped create the Job and Recovery Killing Act of 2011 (HR1), seems to think that jobs can be found in the anatomy of females and in the gay community, and wants to cut Social Security and Medicare. Message: I’m clueless and I have no intention of creating jobs. (source)
  7. Fred Upton and Jim Inhofe:”So let’s dispel a myth: air quality and public health will not be harmed or affected in any way by efforts to slow and then stop EPA’s expansive global warming agenda under the Clean Air Act. . . . . So we can stop the EPA from imposing cap and tax and the Clean Air Act will continue to make our families and communities healthier places. So let’s listen to the facts: this issue is not about air quality and public health, it’s about jobs.” Message: Right now Koch Industries (among others) is giving up an obscene amount of money and that money is more important than your health. (source)
  8. Representative Austin Scott:  “They told him essentially that if he wanted to argue with them that they’d fine him $30,000 per house; those are Gestapo tactics.” Message: Landlords should have the right to poison you and your children with lead paint. We know you secretly love it.
  9. The Orange County Hate Brigade: Representative Gary Miller said to the crowd of anti-Muslims “I’m proud of you, I’m proud of what you’re doing.” Representative Ed Royce said to the same crowd “multiculturalism has paralyzed too many of our citizens to make the critical judgment we need to make to prosper as a society.”  Message: Yes we are racist, but we are still going to deny it.

  10. Villa Park Councilwoman Deborah Pauly: She didn’t want be out done by the fascist racist representatives at the Orange County “Patriotic Rally”. Her statement to the crowd and the attendees of the Muslim fundraiser; “[The fundraiser] is pure, unadulterated evil. I don’t even care if you think I’m crazy anymore. I have a beautiful daughter, I have a beautiful 19 year old son who is a United States marines. As a matter of fact, I know quite a few marines who will be willing to help these terrorists to an early meeting in paradise.” Message: I am a terrible person and an unapologetic proud racist.
