GOP Town Hall Handbook Revealed

[A big welcome to Crooks and Liars readers. Thanks, Mike! - F.]


Excerpts from the book entitled "Taking My Country Back from Those People"

Chapter One: Fail to the Chief

As you know, job one for the true patriot is to do whatever is necessary to make Barack Obama fail. Whatever he is in favor of you know is just his sick subversive plan to take away your guns, have illegal aliens take over your house, and grant abortions on demand to legally married gays.

(You will notice we don't call him 'President' because as you all know, he imported dozens of thugs from Kenya where he was born a Muslim, to rig the last election which he stole from our real president, Sarah Palin.) So, since Obama is in favor of health care reform, you have to be against it. Ignore all the America-hating liberals who tell lies that there is anything wrong with our health care system. Remember, if you don't have health care or your health insurance plan has just said they won't pay for your illness, it's only because you haven't been praying enough.

Chapter Five: Know your Rights!

When those Christ-haters who own the media start to tell you that bringing guns and shouting down any discussion on health care is wrong, just tell them you are exercising your First and Second Amendment Rights. Having the God-given right to shouting and waving guns are all you need to know about your rights. The other stuff in the Bill of Rights is Communist propaganda. When Sarah Palin takes her proper place as our real president, she will abolish the useless Third through Tenth Amendment to the Constitution and replace them with the Ten Commandments.

Actually, they are combining their First and Second Amendment rights. I've done it for years - they're shooting off their mouths.

Update by F on Wednesday morning:

Seems there's a quibble about attribution for the quotes. From comments:

You are pilfering and reposting a copyrighted essay by Citizens For Legitimate Government.
Attorney R J Shulman wrote that essay for CLG.
Please provide PROPER ATTRIBUTION: shulman_gop_...led_310809.html
That is the source URL, despite your welcoming 'Crooks & Liars' readers who are reading *our* essay.
Thank you.
Lori R. Price
Managing Editor
Citizens For Legitimate Government

Everybody happy now, even though it's the same link Gordon posted? Christ ... Don't do much blog, do ya, lady?

Click on whatever fucking link you want.

Update by F on Thursday evening:

It goes on:

My reply to her in comments:

Lori, I'm welcoming Crooks and Liars readers who stop here, thanking Mike Finnigan for the link. That said, since the CLG link seems to not be good enough, I'll post your comment and links.

Figured that would be the end but no:

To Fixer, regarding this comment: 'Lori, I'm welcoming Crooks and Liars readers who stop here, thanking Mike Finnigan for the link.'
Understood, and thank you for the repost of the source URL.
Yes, you are correct that you did provide the link to CLG, so I'm sorry for assuming it was your blog that was at fault.
That having been said, the crooks and liars *at* Crooks and Liars should have provided the link to the original essay -- at CLG -- and not to the secondary/reposting site -- the Alternate Brain blog.
I pointed this out to them, but the no-integrity slugs at C&L kept it as is.
Finnigan is implying, with the layout of his post, that the essay is yours and not CLG's... pathetic is as pathetic does.

But a man has his limits:

Lori, every day, Mike links to blogs not as big as Crooks and Liars. He was linking to us because we referenced your essay and had some relevant commentary on it. He does this with a lot of blogs, I believe, to show us some love in the way of traffic. Do me a favor, Lori. Stop over at C & L every day for a week and you'll get what he's about. Over 4000 (at latest count) C & L readers have read your essay thanks to Mike sending his readers to us to see it. Those 4000 readers (at latest count) are also seeing you make a mountain out of a relative molehill.

I also won't sit back and let you impugn the character of people ("the no-integrity slugs at Crooks and Liars") I have come to respect over the past 5 years. At least, not here.

You're starting to get on my nerves and I suggest we call it a day before you start to piss me off. You got your attribution twice over. Be satisfied with that.
