Tuesadays with Paulie (Wacko Edition)

Keebler Elf calls for Cheney Impeachment
Kucinich "sees flying saucers and he acts like one, too"

He is married to a woman 31 years his junior, believes the bigger the government the better, is a member of the blame America and Israel first crowd and claims to have seen UFO's. Besides running for President of the United States, Congressman Dennis Kucinich (D-OH) is on a new crusade. He has sponsored a bill to introduce impeachment hearings against Vice President Dick Cheney.

Just as fascinating as the idea behind this bill (HR 333), is that Kucinich found 21 co-sponsors or as I like to call them, co-idiots to go along with his shameless pursuit. Some of the intellectually challenged representatives who signed their name to the bill include Keith Ellison (D-MN), Sheila Jackson-Lee (D-TX), James Moran (D-VA), Maxine Waters (D-CA) and of course my former Congresswoman as of this past Saturday, Jan Schakowsky (D-IL). Any bill that's sponsors include this group of no talent ass-clowns cannot be good for America.

Kucinich began his mission against the Vice President in April when he sent a letter to Democratic colleagues announcing his intention have the V.P. impeached. His embarrassing crusade on the Senate floor was immediately dismissed by the Party leadership, but to the surprise of everyone, the Republicans brilliantly jumped on board.

Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-MD) moved to table Kucinich's resolution. Hoyer and Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) have said they will not back symbolic gestures for fear of legitimizing the do-nothing image congress has under their leadership. However, Republicans began changing their votes in order to bring the measure to the floor with the hopes of embarrassing Democrats for making such an insane proposal. Such a debate on the floor would showcase the hardcore Progressive nut jobs that are the heart of the Democratic Party. The sponsor list is a perfect example.

Some Democrats in the House are getting fed up with the actions of the hardcore left that serves to hurt their chances in 2008. Rep. Alcee Hastings (D-FLA) said, "Dennis Kucinich is on a quest of his own...He sees flying saucers and he acts like one."

Sadly, Kucinich is not viewed as a freak by most Democratic voters. I recall during the 2004 race for the White House, I was attending a funeral and right before the service, I overheard a couple discussing their support for John Kerry, but the person they wished could get the nomination was Kucinich. Shamefully these two individuals were Jewish.

As a lover of free speech and freedom, I will fight to the death for all Americans including and in a way especially incompetents such as Kucinich to speak their mind. As disappointed as I am in the Republican Party, it's Democrats such as the Ohio congressmen who remind me that I have no other options but to continue supporting the GOP.

Robertson to Endorse Giuliani
Big win for social moderate

At a time when Mitt Romney is picking up endorsement after endorsement from social conservative leaders, Rudy Giuliani pulls one out of his hat that will undoubtedly slow down the Romney momentum.

At a National Press Club event Wednesday morning, Robertson announced his support for the former New York City Mayor. Your brilliant blogger is not surprised at the endorsement for the pro-choice/pro-gay rights Presidential candidate.

Roberston has learned a few realities during his decades of political activism. When you back losers, your own power is questioned. After eight years of Reagan, Four years of Bush 41 and eight years of the current President Bush, Abortion is still legal and the religious right won't get any closer to overturning Roe v. Wade unless a President is willing to nominate Supreme Court Justices who interpret the Constitution not want to make legislation.

Another concern the 700 Club host has is that their is currently a war against faith in America, sphere headed by the Progressive Left, which control the Democratic Party. Robertson knows that at no time during his life, the idea of a secular Progressive President in the White House with a Democratic controlled congress, could be more damaging to his goals. The idea of a Clinton Presidency scares him beyond compare. Giuliani can win and that is what matters most to him right now.

It also should be noted that Robertson, who your brilliant blogger has never been fond of, understands the war against Islamic fundamentalism. If America is going to be able to practice Christianity or their religion of choice, this war must be won. Giuliani understands the threat. Not one of the Democratic candidates for the office of the President won't even say the words, "Islamic extremism." Congrats Rudy, good choice Mr. Robertson.

Justice is Served
Former Governor going to Prison, Illinois residents learn nothing

A good friend of mine once told me that the smartest person involved in the 1998 Gubernatorial campaign of George Ryan (R) was your brilliant blogger. After Ryan was elected many people took jobs with the State of Illinois. I did not. Four years later with indictments looming and an approval rating that made President Bush look popular, friends and former campaign workers found themselves having to quit their jobs and even leaving the state, knowing that any job with George Ryan was taboo in Illinois.

After multiple indictments, a lengthy trial, a conviction on all counts and appeal after appeal, the former Illinois Governor entered the minimum security federal corrections facility in Oxford, Wisconsin this morning.

Good! Justice Served!

So how should Illinois residents feel? Do we rejoice in justice prevailing? Happy that corruption lost to honesty? Or should we be ashamed that Ryan will be the third modern Illinois governor to be imprisoned on corruption charges? Tribune columnist John Kass believes the latter and I agree whole heatedly.

The sad reality is that Illinois residents, especially residents of Chicago and Cook county, continue to elect corrupted politicians. We can't claim to be dumbfounded that corruption occurs, we usually elect these crooks with a full understanding that they are criminals.

Last election alone we saw the reelection of Gov. Blagojevich, who currently is under more federal investigations then the local chapter of Hamas. Cook County Board President John Stroger was an icon of corruption, but was too ill to run for reelection. So we elected his son who is not only carrying dads torch of backroom politics, he has the competence of Jimmy Carter during the Iran hostage crisis.

You have heard me say it time and time again. People get the government they deserve because we continue to elect corrupt officials knowing full well they are as crooked as a three dollar bill. I guess it's a Chicago tradition.

Hummmm, obviously, you do not know much about Dennis Kucinich. HR 333 is not new! A majority voted on it the other day! And why would you consider Dennis Kucinich an incompetent when he has been in public service for over 40 years and is a 6 term Congressman?

I know that as Mayor of Clevelend the word "incompetent" was used often by newspaper editorial pages. I know he refuses to believe that their is any threat to America from Islamic fundamentalists.

As far as being in public service for forty years, so has many garbage collectors. Regarding him being elected to 6 terms in congress, that has to do with the "D" next to his name. If Sadam Hussein ran as a Democrat in his district he would also win.

Why the length of his political carer is a deterimination of intelligence is beyond me. In fact if there is any profession that does not represent our best and brightest, it is definitely elected officials on the state and federal level.

He should stick to making cookies with that delicious fudge frosting.
