Howard Rich (D-bag, N.Y.) lashes out

Nationally-renowned douchebag Howard Rich is a little upset because people don’t like the shit he’s been pulling and are reacting against it. One of his shell organizations, Americans for Limited Government, is now going to be fucking with people because the super-wealthy nutjob has his panties in a wad.

As a donor to one or more of these organizations and efforts, you have been able to engage in these activities without notice, operating in relative obscurity. I am writing to inform you that this will no longer be the case.

Your name has been put in our database. We are monitoring all reports of a wide variety of leftist organizations. As your name appears in subsequent reports, it is our intent to publicize your involvement in your local community. Should any of these organizations be found to be engaged in illegal or questionable activity, it is our intent to publicize your involvement with those activities. You should know that instances of coordinated voter fraud are surfacing all across America and investigations into possible criminal coordination are underway.

As someone who has been put through that abuse over the years, I can tell you from first-hand experience that it is not fun and not something to take lightly. I have supported groups and efforts that I believe will push back against the radical agenda of the Left. And, I have paid the price for it, in attacks, slurs and threats.

So, asshole, when is your front group, South Carolinians for Responsible Government, going to release the fact that you and your friends are bankrolling their entire operation? Obviously, you’re scared of retribution. Well, don’t worry. We’re ready to do battle with you down here in South Carolina, so come on down, bozo. We’re not scared.

Oh, and just because people dislike the shit about what you’re doing doesn’t make them liberal. Of course, a plutocrat like yourself would never understand that.

Waiting is the hardest part

For those of us who aren’t regularly in a lather about the presidential race, we’re waiting…waiting…waiting for the new state campaign disclosure reports to come out on Oct. 10 Oct. 15. Or before, if the candidate is on top of what they’re doing.

Sure, there’s things to talk about when it comes to the bailout vote, and the issues between Gov. Mark Sanford and the General Assembly, but otherwise the summer news doldrums are in effect. Frankly, it would be fun to see Sanford get the legislature back in session – at least something would be happening.

Zzzzzz….

Relationships v. College Football

If you’re an SEC football fan, you’ve probably run into this at least once. There are issues with football and your significant other, and it causes problems. Of course, for Vierdsen’s last relationship, it just meant that he acted like a total fucking idiot. Such things happen.

But, let’s say it comes down to “it’s me or [insert team here].” Holly Anderson, of Snarkastic, EDSBS and Dr. Saturday, had that happen to her. She’s a Tennessee fan (boo!) living in Los Angeles, and God knows that West Coast people don’t have a clue of understanding football devotion in the South. So, the following happened to her:

We lasted one contentious month into college football season, and on Friday he told me if I left town to watch the Auburn game with my alumni crew instead of going to his buddy’s premiere, to not call him when I got back. I took my key off the ring, tossed it to him, and left without a backward look.

Now we all know I’m Not Sorry is my favorite phrase, but you have to believe me–my mythical temper is just not in play here. (For what it’s worth, I enjoy my anger issues. They’re what makes me fun at parties. Seriously, if your favorite memory of me doesn’t involve me being really, really, really mad about something, you just haven’t known me long enough. Stick around.) Tonight, Sean is sorry. Tonight, Sean wants me to know he didn’t mean that. And I don’t believe him.

That’s what college football taught me about relationships this weekend: If he’s the kind of guy to draw a line like that over me skipping out on a backyard movie night for a conference game…what does it say about him as a person that he’s that straight-up unwilling, not even to adapt to my upbringing and priorities; I’m not asking that, but to just accept that this is part of my life once a week for a scant third of the year? I don’t think this is the scoreboard talking, but tonight? It’s not even worth continuing on with our lowest-maintenance, path-of-least-commitment arrangement, which is really saying something. And the game hurt so much worse. That’s saying something else.

In the original movie adaptation of “Fever Pitch,” Colin Firth as Paul Ashworth talks about how, when it comes down to it, being a devoted fan isn’t so crazy. You have an instant family, people to care about, and there’s always next year. The team will always be there. People won’t.

That may seem juvenile. It certainly is. Your favorite team won’t cook you dinner or cuddle with you or make jokes with you when you’re watching stupid TV shows. But, it’s been there, every season, since you were a kid, and that’s worth something.

Howard Rich friends don’t know what they’re talking about

It’s funny when imbeciles like Lee Bright and Joey Millwood have to answer actual questions. They’ve taken an enormous amount of money from Howard Rich, say they’re for school choice, but can’t seem to answer simple questions.

Bright:
Bright said he didn’t make any promises to Rich or his groups to get the money. He said he never spoke to Rich.

“We’re like-minded individuals who are for less government, and he knew my stance from the debates,” Bright said. “But I made no commitments, other than to make South Carolina a better place for my family and other families.”

He didn’t say how Rich knew his positions from his debates with Talley. Most were sparsely attended, and the audience consisted largely of supporters of the two campaigns.

Millwood:
When asked how low-income students would benefit from a tax credit plan, Millwood said, “I’ll have to get back to you.” He said there were “a lot of student grant organizations out there,” but when asked where they were he said he didn’t know and that he’d never looked into it.

Nice.
