MARK STEYN: Get Lost, You Palace-Guard Creeps
"FRIEND OF THE TAXPAYER" -- Senator Dave Osmek (R-Mound) scores a perfect 100 in the latest Taxpayer League scorecard. This was his third straight year with a perfect 100 score. Meanwhile local legislators fell a bit short: David Hann scored a respectible 85, Jenifer Loon returns to her moderate ways with a dismal 50, not much better than Democrat Yvonne Selcer who scored a horrific 42.
Twitter Feed from SD48 GOP
PERFECT RESPONSE -- Donald Trump: I'm Under No Obligation To Defend President Obama Every Time Someone Says Something Bad About Him."
THE TEXAS CLOCK HOAX -- Investor's Business Daily: "Did Muslim Clock Boy perpetrate a hoax?" Yes ... Yes he did. The real scandal here is the reaction of the media and assorted Leftists (but I repeat myself).
THE ECONOMY CONTINUES TO SINK: Powerline: "Census: Economy is going nowhere." Zero Hedge: "Obama's recovery in just 9 charts." Ace: "Obama: How dare unpatriotic people criticize America."
FAT CHANCE -- Obama urged by GOP to pay more attention to police shootings.
ALL HAIL DIVERSITY! -- Disney to remove gender labeling on Halloween costumes. Little Billy can now trick or treat as Tinkerbell.
THE LEFT HATES FREE SPEECH -- Powerline: "Arrest those climate skeptics!" When you're winning a debate, you don't ask the other side to shut up.
OH, THE THINGS YOU HAVEN'T DONE -- Legal Insurrection: "Hillary's accomplishments: A snapshot of nothing much." Ask 20 Democrats for Hillary's accomplishments and sit back for the funny. A lot of stuff boils down to "gave a speech" or "was in the vicinity of Bill at the time."
"AT NIGHT WE CAN HEAR THEM SCREAMING" -- U.S. soldiers ordered to ignore Afghan child abuse.
JEB BUSH SAYS GUNS ARE NOT A NATIONAL RIGHT -- If we can't trust Jeb to counter a simple and easily refuted attack on the 2nd Amendment, how can we trust him with more complex issues?
