‘Gold’: Joni Ernst swiftly praised for ‘epic troll of Harkin’

http://twitter.com/#!/thesilky/status/529335221431193600

Republican Joni Ernst is running to fill the Iowa Senate seat vacated by the retiring liberal Tom Harkin, and over the weekend Harkin warned voters not to be fooled by the GOP candidate who is “really attractive” and “sounds nice.” Harkin added, “I don’t care if she’s as good looking as Taylor Swift or as nice as Mr. Rogers, but if she votes like Michele Bachmann, she’s wrong for the state of Iowa.”

Ernst has responded to Harkin, though not directly:

Crimea votes to secede; Obama reiterates committment to diplomatic resolution

http://twitter.com/#!/Matthops82/status/445320361107009536

As expected, the vote in Crimea went overwhelmingly in favor of secession.

http://twitter.com/#!/CBSNews/status/445318653970776064

During a phone call at the request of the White House, President Obama told Vladimir Putin that the U.S. will not recognize the results as a referendum but remains committed to a diplomatic solution:

Ted Cruz adds dose of reality to Dems’ ‘like a boss’ Obama bumper sticker

http://twitter.com/#!/tedcruz/status/469911338987552768

The DNC’s proposed Obama “like a boss” bumper sticker has inspired facepalms and Photoshops, and Sen. Ted Cruz got in on the mockery today with a devastating reference to the falling civilian labor force participation rate.

Well played, Senator!

Sarah Palin blasts ‘despicable’ MSNBC for mocking Romney grandson

http://twitter.com/#!/NolteNC/status/417807439585492993

As Twitchy reported, the repugnant racist progressives of pallor over at MSNBC sunk to a new low and mocked the Romneys’ adopted grandson. A loving family adopting a child? Yuk, yuk, yuk!

As Charles Payne said, this was truly “beyond the pale.”

Sarah Palin gave them the business as only she can.

http://twitter.com/#!/SarahPalinUSA/status/417929022916788224

From her Facebook page:

Holy unbelievable. The hypocritical leftist lamestream media should be shamed by every caring, child-loving American. It has once again reached a new low. See the article linked below. One just can’t win in their petty little games. Good thing most Americans don’t play those little games! It’s a beautiful thing the Romney family has done by embracing “the spirit of adoption.” What on earth is morebeautiful? Shame on MSNBC for mocking this.

The LSM’s pursuit of “shock ratings” is unreal. Governor Mitt Romney ran for higher office with what I believe is a servant’s heart. He was saddled with some sup-par campaign tactics. That does not make him a bad person nor does it open his children or grandchildren to attacks over a year after the fact. This latest attack from the Left is despicable.

Leftist media hounds are not expressing an opinion with this attack; they are expressing a prejudice that would never be accepted if it came from anyone else but the lib media.

You really need a conscience, yellow journalists. May your 2014 New Year’s Resolution be to find one.

Thank you, Romney family, for giving a child a family full of love.

http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Journalism/2013/12/30/menbc-harri-sperry-panel-mocks-romneys-black-grandson

Amen. A thousand times amen.

Vile haters couldn’t resist exposing their own moral bankruptcy, natch.

Seek help.

MSNBC and those Twitter users expose the truth: This is the Left. Tolerant and loving? Baloney.

Marie Claire mag skewered for absurd jab at Candace Cameron Bure

http://twitter.com/#!/Cry4Liberty/status/421086879996735489

As Twitchy reported, actress Candace Cameron Bure responded to feminist attacks on her marriage with a kick-ass photo.

http://twitter.com/#!/candacecbure/status/421180428095995904

In her book, Bure writes, “I chose to fall into a more submissive role in our relationship because I wanted to do everything in my power to make my marriage and family work.”

Keyword: “Chose.”

Bure embraces the biblical definition of “submissive” and said, “It is not weakness. It’s strength under control. It’s bridled strength.” That’s a choice that doesn’t get the stamp of approval from the supposedly “pro-choice” Left.

As we noted on Wednesday, this tweet from “women’s magazine” Marie Claire was among the feminist freak-outs.

http://twitter.com/#!/marieclaire/status/420671915418611712

A billion!!111!!eleventy!!11!

Marie Claire followed up that tweet with this one:

http://twitter.com/#!/marieclaire/status/420672872885915648

Candace Cameron Bure is setting women back “approximately a billion years” by determining what works best for her family, but “Girls” actress Lena Dunham? #GoGirl! Predictable.

http://twitter.com/#!/BlondeNY/status/421120365218496512

Pass the barf bag and take a look at some of the other things that really “matter to women,” as determined by Marie Claire.

Actress apologizes — sort of — after mocking Romneys’ grandchild on MSNBC

http://twitter.com/#!/michellemalkin/status/417778325461819393

Actress Pia Glenn must’ve thought she was pretty clever when she took shots at Mitt and Ann Romney’s adopted grandson on MSNBC. See, even though she was mocking an innocent child of color for the hell of it, she didn’t seem to think she did anything unsavory:

http://twitter.com/#!/PiaGlenn/status/417742583461605376

There it is! She didn’t pick that photo of the Romneys, so she most certainly can’t be held accountable for what she said about it. Or something.

http://twitter.com/#!/PiaGlenn/status/417744546366521344

Really, Pia? Then what would you call singling out a little boy in order to shame his family for loving him?

http://twitter.com/#!/ProfHagle/status/417780968376659968

We may never find out. Meanwhile, unlike Melissa Harris-Perry or co-panelist Dean Obeidallah, Glenn has apologized. But she still doesn’t seem all that clear on what she’s apologizing for:

http://twitter.com/#!/PiaGlenn/status/417793075596251136

Is it really a mystery why so many people have taken offense to her remarks? No. But at least she’s made an attempt at an apology. She’s sorry about something. Just don’t expect her contrition to go too deeply:

http://twitter.com/#!/PiaGlenn/status/417797107777818624

Yeah, haters. It’s not like she’s Phil Robertson or something.

Ugh.

Larry Elder: Tamera Mowry-Housley ‘not alone’; Sick lib bigotry flashbacks

http://twitter.com/#!/CarnesGeorge/status/423847334166794240

Bingo!

As Twitchy reported, actress Tamera Mowry-Housley has been the recipient of vicious attacks due to her interracial marriage to Fox News journo Adam Housley. Most recently, she was despicably called a “white man’s whore.

Larry Elder points out that she is, sadly, not alone.

http://twitter.com/#!/larryelder/status/423830121095520256

Michelle Malkin pointed that out as well in a must-read column:

Let’s face it: Mowry’s sin, in the view of her feckless detractors, is not merely that she married outside her race. It’s also that she is so open about her love for a white man who — gasp! — works for reviled Fox News. Neither of them is political, but the mere association with Bad Things (Fox, conservatives, capitalism, the tea party, Christian activism, traditional values) is an invitation for unabashed hate.

The dirty open secret is that a certain category of public figures has been routinely mocked, savaged and reviled for being partners in interracial marriages or part of loving interracial families (for a refresher, see the video clip of MSNBC host Melissa Harris-Perry and friends cackling at the holiday photo of Mitt Romney holding his black adopted grandson in his lap).

Dead-on. Such repugnant hate and bigotry is rampant on the Left and is particularly aimed at conservatives. Mr. Elder notes some vile flashback-quotes:

http://twitter.com/#!/larryelder/status/423833613671473153
http://twitter.com/#!/larryelder/status/423840388550385664

Always remember, this is the Left. Got racism? They do.

David Hasselhoff shares news of his ‘death,’ tries to bond with Justin Bieber

http://twitter.com/#!/mrst43/status/425962359631642624

Another day, another celeb death hoax.

Actor/singer David Hasselhoff took to Twitter on Wednesday to share the news of his death with the train wreck known as Justin Bieber.

http://twitter.com/#!/DavidHasselhoff/status/425959036660379649

From the “report,” which includes the disclaimer “THIS STORY IS 100% FAKE!”:

Witnesses indicate that David Hasselhoff lost control of his snowboard and struck a tree at a high rate of speed.

David Hasselhoff was air lifted by ski patrol teams to a local hospital, however, it is believed that the actor died instantly from the impact of the crash.

What a coincidence! Justin Bieber recently tried to revive his reputation with a little snowboarding.

http://twitter.com/#!/justinbieber/status/425389194282668032

//instagram.com/p/jaCQEAAvr1/embed/

But while Justin’s reputation remains a not-so-hot mess, The Hoff is still very much alive and he’s not so hooked on the feeling of meeting his demise on a spoof site.

https://twitter.com/MurphyBronagh/status/425959459819900928

Bieber and Hasselhoff shared a moment or two of quality bonding time last year when they lashed out at the media for “bs” stories.

http://twitter.com/#!/DavidHasselhoff/status/397862688316866560

Hasselhoff retweeted these tweets from Bieber.

http://twitter.com/#!/justinbieber/status/397864452306911233

For what it’s worth, Bieber’s manager loved the exchange.

Amanda Carpenter: Senate staffers think not reading omnibus bill is hilarious

http://twitter.com/#!/ZaffoZaza/status/423553988303155200

You’d think, you’d hope, that senators would want to know what’s in that $1.012 trillion omnibus spending bill they’re considering, but it seems their staffers can’t even be bothered with that. Amanda Carpenter, senior communications adviser for Sen. Cruz, has gotten wind of what the staffers are up to, and it should seriously piss you off:

http://twitter.com/#!/amandacarpenter/status/423552651817938944
http://twitter.com/#!/amandacarpenter/status/423552962263519232

Pardon? Earlier this week, the Heritage Foundation sat down to do the work that Senate staffers evidently refuse to do. And, lo and behold, Heritage discovered earmarks galore.
