I guess it isn’t just the NH GOP that sucks

by Skip July 2, 2017

From my friend and loyal reader (emphasis mine): Skip – thought you’d appreciate the irony.

by Skip February 3, 2017

 “..We are anti-authoritarians working to confront racism, sexism, homophobia, anti-semitism, Islamophobia, transphobia, and all the other various forms of oppression….” I dryly note that their dictionary is missing the word “Irony”, especially when you read this from them: We've been warned, everybody! — Brandon Morse (@TheBrandonMorse) February 3, 2017 I’m not sure if I […]

Its famed research vessels and scientists are arrayed across the globe, installing weather instruments off the Cape, tracking water currents in the Labrador Sea, monitoring monsoons in India, and measuring melting ice in Antarctica.

Do they really ever think about what they say, and the context in which the rest of us hear this?  And in this case, wonder why Hillary hasn’t divorced  Bill yet? WHEN AMERICA SLIPS BEYOND PARODY: Bill Clinton’s Wife Condemns ‘Scourge Of Sexual Assault’ In First Big Speech. (H/T: Instapundit)

It’s Constitution Day – so what does the White House emphasize? Er….Obama?

…OBAMA! Happy Constitution Day! — The White House (@WhiteHouse) September 17, 2014 What was I thinking – that they’d actually tweet out, you know, something that really says “Constitution Day like a copy of the US Constitution?  Naw, just the “Constitutional Lecturer” – must be in the center of everything – it seems […]

In the second segment of yesterday’s GrokTALK!, Matt Murphy from Citizens for a Strong New Hampshire was opining on the mysteries of SB120, the NH Incumbent protection Act.  SB120 would skew speech rights in favor of politicians (just search SB120 on the Grok for ample details if you are unfamiliar).  He was wondering why the […]

by Mike April 26, 2014

Busted CA state Senator Leland Yee, campaigned on an anti-gun platform right up to the point when he was arrested for, yes, gun-running and other crimes in conjunction with his brother in arms Raymond ‘Shrimp Boy’ Chow, but that wasn’t the only irony…..

I woke to Skip’s post quoting the proprietor of Gunstock Ski Resort about how the cost pressures put on his business by DemocratCare (The un-eponymous affordable Care Act) will affect winter tourism.   It will shorten the season.  He wont be able to operate as long.  Had he realized the impact he would not have built […]

NHGOP: “Principles Win Elections” –
Oh, The Irony, The Hypocrisy!

by Mike April 9, 2014

Let me present (above) the NHGOP banner, Brown Merger Edition. With their constant promotion of all things Brown (and I don’t mean UPS) since last fall (come to the event – he gave us money, you know), and the obvious embrace of Brown as “the candidate with the Money to win”, the Grassroots could be […]

Nothing says “Democrats are the smartest people in the room” like this… “As a result of the ACA, between 6 million and 7 million fewer people will have employment-based insurance coverage each year from 2016 through 2024 than would be the case in the absence of the ACA.” Would it be racist to claim this […]

The irony of this is not lost on me.  Think Progress posted a reference to our GrokTALK! interview with NH House Rep JR Hoell, regarding Scott Brown and how Senator Brown’s position on guns may be great for Massachusetts but it is non-starter in the Granite State.
