‘I know how to fill a bustier’: Bette Midler asks if she should give Congress a go

http://twitter.com/#!/GailUpp/status/489525547584610304

Has Bette Midler decided to stop just sounding off about politics on Twitter and put her money where her mouth is?

http://twitter.com/#!/BetteMidler/status/489457421182840832

Well, that’s … something.

http://twitter.com/#!/MavisMartin/status/489457744890822656

And what basis would that be, exactly? It probably doesn’t matter, seeing as even if Midler were serious, she likely wouldn’t have much political wind beneath her wings. The only wind we can find is between her ears. And maybe between this guy’s:

President Bette Midler? There’s a thought exercise we’d rather sit out on.

Albert Brooks: Man could have prevented Iraq crisis, but ‘we killed that guy’

http://twitter.com/#!/dweise/status/479704542477828096

With the situation in Iraq continuing to deteriorate, actor/comedian Albert Brooks says none of this would be happening had Saddam Hussein been left in power:

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

http://twitter.com/#!/redsteeze/status/438903557631533057

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.

http://twitter.com/#!/sallykohn/status/439019497165697024

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.)

‘Maybe MSNBC will like you now’! April Fools Day comes early for Ted Cruz [pic]

Sen. Cruz joined citizens outside the Supreme Court yesterday to show his support for Hobby Lobby and religious freedom:

Apparently, according to one media outlet, he also switched parties:

Well, yes. Technically it is. But:

http://twitter.com/#!/rachelveronica/status/448846937521799168

Snort.

Being misidentified as a Democrat has got to suck, but maybe in this case, there’s a silver lining:

Ha! There you go!

Ron Paul spreads Blame America poison on 9/11 anniversary

http://twitter.com/#!/RonPaul/status/509793624595247105

Here is an excerpt from the three-paragraph article, published on Ron Paul’s Voices of Liberty website:

It will be an immense dishonor to those dead Americans that the U.S. government will continue to commit the moral equivalent of 9/11 against others equally as innocent, equally as precious. It will be a disgusting display as they continue to try to convince us to excuse the deaths of innocents with horrible euphemisms like “collateral damage” and callous phrases like “people die in war”.

The least Americans can do is oppose them. The least we can do is regard them as warmongers and hold them in contempt. The way to honor those killed on 9/11 is to never forget that killing innocents is always wrong and can never be justified.

If “killing innocents is always wrong” and “collateral damage” is a “horrible euphemism,” the author must believe that the U.K. and U.S. bombings of German and Japanese cities during World War II were moral atrocities, since those bombings killed many thousands of innocent civilians. Indeed, the author presumably regards the U.S. and British armed forces who ordered and implemented those bombings as “warmongers” who are morally equivalent to Osama bin Laden and Al Qaeda.

Disgraceful.

‘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:

While we await the Sajak/Pajama Boy Sippy Cup Summit, it’s time to discuss some neglected aspects of OFA’s Obamacare spokesmodel. While the Twitterverse has mercilessly and delightfully mocked the juice-boxer’s delicate cocoa cup and flannel onesie …

‘Chuckling toadies!’ Greg Gutfeld notes worst part, ‘best reminder’ from #WHCD

http://twitter.com/#!/greggutfeld/status/462784471482507264

“Red Eye” and “The Five” host, Fox News’ Greg Gutfeld, took to Twitter to live-tweet the White House Correspondents’ Dinner. He’s a giver!

As Twitchy reported, President Obama and the disgraced Kathleen Sebelius let it be known that they find the epic failure known as Obamacare a reason to totally yuk it up. Greg Gutfeld noted that “a Sebelius” should become a new term. And not in the good way. But he (luckily) didn’t stop there.

http://twitter.com/#!/greggutfeld/status/462785638115586049

Heh. That does pretty much sum it up. But what was the worst part?

http://twitter.com/#!/greggutfeld/status/462786647181258752

Gasping! Gutfeld then offers up a bright side as only he can: At least the dreaded Nerd Prom was a good reminder of this:

Bam.

So lonely: Any takers for Jared Leto’s offer of Obamacare retweets?

http://twitter.com/#!/JaredLeto/status/434472216571699200

As Twitchy noted, actor and musician Jared Leto joined the pitiful celeb Obamacare push on Valentine’s Day by offering to retweet insurance receipts. Leto has 1.3 million Twitter followers, so surely someone is interested in a retweet from Miley Cyrus’ bun-sporting sleepover pal. Right?

Right?

OK, we have a taker.

http://twitter.com/#!/AngelJesacah/status/434486234262798336

Sorry, kiddo. Pics or it didn’t happen.

We gave Leto several days, but he has yet to retweet anyone’s proof of insurance coverage. And oddly, he didn’t share any of these tweets with his followers. Why could that be?

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

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.
