Pete Hoekstra’s racist “Debbie Spenditnow” ad accidentally aired again in Flint and Saginaw

Oopsie

Remember that racist “Yellow Girl” Superbowl ad Pete Hoekstra ran last winter? (You can read my pieces on it HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, and HERE.) Somehow a station in the Flint/Saginaw area ran it again this morning by accident.

Oops.

Republicans are “the party that wants to help the poor”? Oh, puh-LEASE!

Republicans are “the party that wants to help the poor”? Oh, puh-LEASE!

Swing and a miss, Mitt

Mitt Romney attended a high dollar fundraiser at a country club recently and said this:

We’re accused, by the way — in our party — of being the party of the rich. And it’s an awful moniker, because that’s just not true. We’re the party of people who want to get rich. And we’re also the party of people who want to care to help people from getting poor. We want to help the poor.

Can we just back up a minute and take a look at what Republicans really stand for?

Tea Party Troy Mayor Janice Daniels’ recall is certified

Tea Party Troy Mayor Janice Daniels’ recall is certified

Facing the music

Despite two absurd attempts to have petition signatures thrown out, Tea party Troy Mayor Janice Daniels will officially face a recall in November.

Daniels, shown right with deejay Thayrone “your audio g-spot will now be massaged by the mink glove of soul” X, challenged the petitions based on corrections not being initialed by the circulator (not required) and because signers didn’t include their zip code (also not required.)

Day 2 – Third quarter fundraiser

Day 2 – Third quarter fundraiser

Baby needs a new web server

So, yesterday, LOLGOP broke the internet. More accurately, he generated so much traffic at Eclectablog with his piece “Your Affordable Care Act Rebate Can Save Lives” that he overloaded the servers at our web hosting company and they shut us down for several hours. So, we need to upgrade and it’s going to cost about $600 per year to do that.

That’s the kind of thing we’re asking you for donations for: to keep Eclectablog humming along flawlessly, even when one of our posts hits the front page of Reddit and is getting nearly 500 hits per minute (I’m not kidding.)

You can make a donation using the oh-so-easy-to-use Paypal link after the jump.

Your Affordable Care Act Rebate Can Save Lives

Your Affordable Care Act Rebate Can Save Lives

WARNING: ObamaCare is a ticking time bomb that could go off and save millions of Americans from heartache and illness. Something strange is happening all over America: Insurance companies are sending checks to their customers. When I received mine, I was shocked. Aren’t I supposed to be paying you, Humana, more and more as I’m increasingly scared of using any […]

Day 1 – Third quarter fundraiser

Support your local bloggers

It’s that time of the year again where we come to you, tip jar in hand, and ask you to support what we do here at Eclectablog. As most of you know, this is not a full-time gig for me, Anne and LOLGOP. It doesn’t even come close to paying the bills. We do these fundraisers to help offset our costs for equipment, travel, and fees for various things we do. In exchange, we bring you regularly updated content, insightful commentary, liveblogging, exclusive reporting and magnificent photography.

If you’d like to say “thank you” and help keep us doing what we’re doing, you can do so after the jump.

#retroactively is the new Etch-A-Sketch – the Romney campaign takes flip-flopping to a new place

#retroactively is the new Etch-A-Sketch – the Romney campaign takes flip-flopping to a new place

I will gladly change my position Tuesday on an opinion I have today

Back in March, Romney adviser Eric Fehrnstrom made it clear that Mitt Romney was willing to reset his position at any given time, just like shaking an Etch-A-Sketch.

Over the weekend, another Romney adviser made it even more clear that this concept also goes for anything at all that Mitt Romney has ever done, including when he retired from Bain Capital.

Americans for Prosperity hosts fake grassroots rally with Sarah Palin, pretends to be “non-political” – PHOTOS

Americans for Prosperity hosts fake grassroots rally with Sarah Palin, pretends to be “non-political” – PHOTOS

So much anger, so much hate, so much astroturf

Yesterday, Americans For Prosperity held a fake grassroots rally in Belleville, Michigan near the Detroit Metro Airport. Around 400-500 tea party supporters and Sarah Palin fanatics showed up to bake in the hot sun to witness an event, dubbed “Kochstock” by LOLGOP, bought and paid for by the conservative group that bills itself as a non-political 501(c)(4) nonprofit group. This nonprofit status allows them to hide their donors and to sponsor these types of events around the country as long as they don’t support a candidate.

The result was a several-hour long anti-Obama, anti-Democrat hatefest where not a single Republican candidate got mentioned.
