(NEWSER) – What happened inside a Missoula, Montana, GOP convention this weekend—including a Newt Gingrich speech—was overshadowed by what turned up outside: an outhouse marked “Obama Presidential Library” and covered in painted-on bullet holes. The outhouse contained a fake Obama birth certificate that was stamped “bullsh**,” as well as graffiti saying, “For a good time, call Michelle,” whose name was crossed out, then “Hillary,” crossed out again, and finally, “Pelosi,” in a red circle.
It’s not clear who was responsible for the outhouse, which had appeared earlier in a local parade. It was “a sideshow,” said the state’s GOP chair, who noted that he didn’t know where it came from. But “it’s not something I’m going to agonize over,” he tells the Helena Independent Record. “Some of that stuff is not real good taste. We do have a president of the United States, and we have to honor that.” Click through for an image of the outhouse.
Throughout the GOP primary I have written out about how ugly Republicans can be and without shame or remorse. These people are earning a place in Hell! Sen. Mitch McConnell (who is running for re-election in Kentucky) is the leader of a movement to using gridlock and inaction in The Congress to punish Barack Obama for daring to become the first black President of the United states. I keep showing the following video because Sen. Mitch McConnell should not be re-elected:
VOTE OUT THE ENTRENCHED REPUBLICANS
Oh, BTW, do you agree that members of Congress should not be paid if they continue to be a “do-nothing Congress?” Yes? Check out No Labels.
Hundreds of people gathered outside the capitol in Lansing, Michigan, tonight to listen to a performance of The Vagina Monologues by eleven female lawmakers.
And this sign from tonight’s event said it all: “Vaginas brought you into the world and vaginas will vote you out.”
This all stems from a debate over abortion legislation. Rep. Lisa Brown was censured for using the word vagina on the House floor.
“And finally, Mr. Speaker, I’m flattered that you’re all so interested in my vagina, but no means no,” Brown said Wednesday.
Republican leaders insisted they were offended by her “rape reference,” not the word “vagina.”

Ed Kirkeby (Oct.10,1891 – June 12,1978) band leader, vocalist, manager, and salesman, is best remembered as the manager of Fats Waller. He was one of the first recording managers at Columbia Records to record jazz and organized the California Ramblers to record it.
He used several pseudonyms for recording including Ted Wallace, Ed Kirkeby Wallace, and Eddie Lloyd.
Over the years he also managed the Pickens Sisters, was an A&R person at RCA Victor, and worked in the band booking department at NBC. As Fats Waller’s manager he also acted as his archivist building a collection which is held today by the Institute of Jazz Studies.
After Waller’s death in 1943 Kirkeby remained active managing many other groups and musicians through 1977.

A sage said once: “Know your enemy. Senator Mitch McConnell, Minority Leader has issued a declaration of war on Barack Obama:
Here is the thinking in TEAM MITCH which is trying to get Mitch McConnell re-elected. If you are living in Kentucky, please do what you can to retire Mitch McConnell:
On Friday, Mitch McConnell gave a full-throated defense of the First Amendment in a speech to the American Enterprise Institute.
In recent months, the Obama administration has ramped up its use of bullying and intimidation tactics to silence conservative groups critical of the President’s policies.
These assaults on free speech aren’t being covered in the mainstream media, and that’s why Leader McConnell felt it was time to send a clear message to Democrats and Republicans alike:
“The First Amendment is something about which there can be no compromise.”
If you missed Friday’s speech, you can watch it now on TeamMitch.com
Over the next few weeks, Leader McConnell will be doing all he can to spread the word about the Obama administration’s blatant abuse of power. We cannot sit idly by while the President and his allies use their power to bully political opponents.
