WFB Supercut: Why The Dems Lost (Video)

When Republicans talk about improving their “brand” – they don’t mean changing or concealing their principles so they can be more palatable to certain constituencies that don’t traditionally vote Republican. They mean doing a better job reaching out and explaining their principles to those constituencies.

Democrats, on the other hand, get by through stealth –  their “how can we fool them today?” M/O. The reason they have to rely on phony “War on Women”, class warfare, race-baiting tactics, is because when they tell the truth about their agenda, they are rejected. That can lead to uncomfortable moments on the campaign trail when the media actually does their job and holds them accountable.

Keep in mind as you watch this, that these guys were the Democrats’ A team.

Weasel Of The Week!!

Every Tuesday, the Council nominates some of the slimiest, most despicable characters in public life for some deed of evil, cowardice or corruption they’ve performed. Then we vote to single out one particular Weasel for special mention, to whom we award the statuette of shame, our special, 100% plastic Golden Weasel.

This week’s nominees were all real weasels, but in the end the winner by a nose was….the envelope please..
Actress, Attention Whore and Hollywood Flavor-of-the-month Lena Dunham!

 The Razor: Lena Dunham, for writing about molesting her younger sister in her book “Not That Kind of Girl,” then threatening to sue Truth Revolt for quoting passages from the book detailing her abuse.

I’ve always thought Dunham was another unhinged Hollywood Lefty and like most of her type I’ve ignored her. But writing about abusing her sister, then threatening to sue a publication for publicizing it strikes me as pretty weasely – hence my nomination for this week.

Virginia Right!: Lena Dunham has always struck me as an ideological idiot with no talent other than being an outrageous liberal with a big mouth.

Now, she has written a book confessing to molesting her younger sister and essentially being a child predator.

A passage from her book (warning – graphic):

One day, as I sat in our driveway in Long Island playing with blocks and buckets, my curiosity got the best of me. Grace was sitting up, babbling and smiling, and I leaned down between her legs and carefully spread open her vagina. She didn’t resist and when I saw what was inside I shrieked.

My mother came running. “Mama, Mama! Grace has something in there!”

My mother didn’t bother asking why I had opened Grace’s vagina. This was within the spectrum of things I did. She just got on her knees and looked for herself. It quickly became apparent that Grace had stuffed six or seven pebbles in there. My mother removed them patiently while Grace cackled, thrilled that her prank had been a success.

(even more at the the Truth Revolt link.)

Now, it’s not often we get to give out the statuette of shame to someone who admits that they acted like a sexual predator on an underage child, but as a character in one of my favorite movies said, ‘if you live long enough everything weird will happen to you.’

Speaking of weird, Kevin D. Williamson over at National Review was the first one to actually read this book and find the graphic passages relating to sexual abuse by Dunham of her sister and to write about it in a fine piece entitled Pathetic Privilege. The really strange things are  first,  that Dunham’s editor left this stuff in the book without flagging it as highly inappropriate and second that the book was reviewed by a number of mainstream writers and none of them even mentioned this genuinely creepy stuff.Did they think this was normal behavior?

Apparently our culture has indeed gotten that degenerate, and that is not a good thing, as even a casual look at history tells us.

But hey, we’re here to give out an  award, not preach a sermon! So step right up and get your statuette of shame, Ms. Dunham! Yes, we have the spotlight you requested and your photographer is right over there, just like you wanted. No, I can’t exactly order people to stay in their seats while you give your 15 minute acceptance speech, I discussed that with your agent. What? Oh, I always wear surgical gloves when giving out this award..gotta be careful what and whom you touch in case it rubs off on you, y’know. Buh-bye, Ms. Dunham, enjoy and umm, thank you?

Well, there it is! 

Check back next Tuesday to see who next week’s nominees for Weasel of the Week are!

Dems Saying Privately Midterm Drubbing Was “All Obama’s Fault”… DCCC Asks Supporters To Thank Obama

On Fox news’ Special Report, Wednesday night, The Hill’s AB Stoddard in a discussion about Obama’s press conference, noted that he was still “defiant” and not inclined to change anything. “He in I think a bit of denial – but so are the Democrats,” she noted. “What we hear privately from them last night and today is it’s all his (Obama’s) fault and what you hear publicly is that our people don’t come out in midterms so it doesn’t really matter. They haven’t figured out what mistakes they’re going to have to fix for 2016 and then 2018.” Via Weasel Zippers:

Meanwhile, also via Weasel Zippers, see if this makes sense: DCCC Asks Supporters To “Thank” Obama For GOP Crushing Dems Across The Board…


First off, you know we’re not afraid to be blunt. So we’ll just come out and say it: last night was rough. We registered more voters, and made more phone calls, and knocked on more doors than ever before. But we were still left with heartbreaking losses. Although make no mistake: last night’s results were no accident. It was the result of Republicans’ cynical political strategy that put hurting President Obama before helping the American people. […] So if you’re still fighting with us… if you’re still standing with the President… sign our note to President Obama thanking him for all he’s done and letting him know that we have his back.

Yep, the Democrat party still needs to figure some things out.

MORE: Bill O’Reilly had Charles Krauthammer on The Factor to talk about the shellacking. Dr. K said of Obama, “he’s a strange combination of obliviousness and recklessness.” He didn’t recommend that the GOP impeach Obama – he said they need to be very disciplined and avoid that. He later elaborated on how to do that. “You say this unconstitutional, illegal and we’re going to find every way can to make sure that it is not funded, that this does not get a penny of the purse. It is illegal to enact anything by executive order unless you get some appropriation from the Congress.” He went on to say that the E/O could be reversed in 2018.

Obama doubled down on the amnesty threat during today’s press conference, affirming that it would happen because Republicans haven’t been willing to work with him for the past two years. He said that the best way to avoid his unlawful action would be for Congress to cooperate and put a bill on his desk. Sounding like a Chicago shakedown artist, the president promised that if Congress behaves and passes an immigration law he likes, the executive overreach will “go away.”

“I think that the best way, if folks are serious about getting immigration reform done, is going ahead and passing a bill and getting it to my desk. And then the executive actions that I take go away. They’re superseded by the law that is passed. And I will engage any member of Congress who’s interested in this in how we can shape legislation that will be a significant improvement over the existing system.

Serious question: How is it not a form of extortion for a president to threaten to take an extreme unilateral action if Congress doesn’t do what he wants?
