Celebs urging the uninsured to #GetCovered don’t earn points for creativity


Many celebs took to Twitter to urge people to #GetCovered under Obamacare.

For people who might pride themselves on being in “creative” fields of endeavor, you’ll notice that a lot of them used “canned” tweets:


And of course Kal Penn along with Adam Levine and Fran Drescher have also urged people to #GetCovered. How many of these same people are signing up for it themselves is not known.

Lib ‘logic’: Brewer an ‘anti-gay extremist,’ DOMA signer Clinton a brave hero


As Twitchy noted last night, Gov. Jan Brewer’s veto of updates to Arizona’s Religious Freedom Restoration Act didn’t win over CNN contributor Sally Kohn. And her tweet was just a mild example of how progressives react when they get what they want.


Brewer vetoed the bill and is a “vicious anti-gay, anti-immigrant extremist”? Fascinating:


Duh. He’s evolved now. What a difference a (D) makes. (Repeat: It’s not a cult.)


Jan Brewer vetoes #AZ1062
Bill Clinton signed #RFRA and #DOMA

Guess which one @SallyKohn supports.— S.M (@redsteeze) February 27, 2014


Not to mention Clinton’s personal War on Women.


And yet, the Left remains disappointed that Cheney is alive.

Hickenlooper staffer threatens to call police on investigative reporter


That’s Allen Fuller, the communications director for Republican Colorado gubernatorial candidate Bob Beauprez, asking about the arrest of reporters. The reason? Former Denver Post reporter, former Channel 7 investigative executive producer and current Watchdog.org investigative reporter Art Kane says he was threatened with arrest for trying to procure Gov. John Hickenlooper’s tax returns, which have already been distributed to other media outlets.

Kane reports that the campaign spokesman for Hickenlooper threatened him with arrest and called police when Kane attempted to get the candidate’s tax returns, which were distributed to other Colorado media weeks ago.

Beauprez released his returns to Watchdog.org, which is planning to run a story on both candidate’s returns — or lack thereof — next week.

So this is one way to handle a reporter asking for things like . . . tax returns, threaten arrest. http://t.co/RTHXnplwWG #cogov #copolitics

Magnitude-5.1 L.A.-area earthquake a boon for Twitter photographers … and comedians


Yep, Southern California had “another eaAaaarrrthquake” late last night. There have been no fatalities or major injuries reported as yet, and hopefully that won’t change in the morning.  There were, however, lots of photos of quake damage posted to Twitter:


Then there were photos of “devastation” posted by jokers such as these:

Biggest joke of all at #WHCD: Kathleen Sebelius makes cameo


President Obama and disgraced former HHS secretary Kathleen Sebelius actually think their job-killing, innovation-undermining, market-distorting, website-choking, insurance-sabotaging Obamacare failure is funny.


These people really have no shame.



Update: Here’s the video.

Biden: If Congress doesn’t ‘see the Lord’ on immigration, they’ll ‘see lightning’


You heard it from Uncle Joe, folks: If Congress doesn’t give Obama what he wants, he’s gonna whip out his “big stick.”

On immigration reform, VP Biden says if Congress didnt act by year's end, Pres Obama will act "and he’s going to do an awful lot”.

— Mark Knoller (@markknoller) September 22, 2014

Got that? He’s gonna do it. And not just a little bit, but “an awful lot.” Not right away, though:

President Obama is generously giving Congress another month or so to “see the Lord”:

Biden: “When this election [is] over…they just may see the Lord. It is possible. But if they don’t they will see some lightning.”

— Elise Foley (@elisefoley) September 22, 2014

And Lord Obama will be the one dishing it out:

Addressing his Hispanic Heritage event, Biden said if Congress fails to act on immigration after the election, "we will act for them."

— Mark Knoller (@markknoller) September 22, 2014

Got that?

Bill Clinton cancels fundraising appearance for Mark Udall

Colorado Sen. Mark Udall is facing a tight race for re-election and he needs all the help he can get (no, not from you President Obama).

Bill Clinton had been scheduled to headline a Udall fundraiser, but with the birth of his granddaughter, Charlotte, the former president’s appearance on Udall’s behalf won’t be happening today:
