Democrats do not want to solve the illegal immigration problem because they know, this is a fact, that when more illegal immigrants move into an area, when their children grow up and get the chance to vote, they vote for Democrats. They like big government, they like programs, they’ve benefited from the day they were born because the child was born into poverty because mom and dad are poor. Liberals are always going to want to create their utopia — if they just have a little bit more tax money, if they just let a few more illegal immigrants in— they would just create this wonderful melting pot and it would all be beautiful and we’d run through the field of flowers. Well that’s not going to happen, and we have to have polices that are going to work. Empty the clip, and do what has to be done.

Alabama State Senator Scott Beason, advising fellow Republicans on what to do about illegal immigration and Democrats. 

This is the state of political debate. It’s okay to suggest “emptying the clip” less than one month after Rep. Gabby Giffords was shot in Tucson. Her shooter did just that, only not metaphorically, which I’m sure will be your defense.

BREAKING: Utah GOP Trying To Strip Contracts Between Gay Couples

State Representative LaVar Christensen (R, HD48) has reintroduced a bill he tried to run in 2006 which prohibits same sex couples from making contractual arrangements such as wills and financial arrangements. Get calling!

LaVar Christensen, the man who introduced and passed Utah’s Constitutional Amendment banning gay marriage, has reintroduced an old enemy of the LGBT community. The bill, known in 2006 as HB 304 but now as HB 182, slides in under the generic title “Voiding Transactions Against Public Policy.” The bill’s language is virtually word-for word from the narrowly-defeated measure from 2006 and if passed will strip even more rights away from the same sex couples who desperately depend on contractual arrangements as Utah denies them any of the inherent protections afforded to any other couple.

From TPM:

Hell hath no fury like a conservative scorned.

The Daily Caller reports what they call the “wonkiest, nerdiest Internet revenge ever.” Allow us to add “social conservative-iest” to that list of adjectives.

Todd Seavey and Helen Rittelmeyer, contributors to “Proud To Be Right,” a collection of essays written by “voices of the next conservative generation” and edited by Jonah Goldberg, appeared at a panel promoting the book this weekend. They sat next to each other, and Seavey’s critique of Rittelmeyer’s political philosophy turned into Seavey basically calling Rittelmeyer a two-timing cheat.

"It might come as a surprise to some of you that we dated for two years," Seavey said. "[Not because] we have ideological differences, but because there are probably some people in this room who also dated Helen during those two years, given how tumultuous it got."

Rittelmeyer tries her best to keep her cool as Seavey just unloads on her. There’s not much else to really say about this, except that once you start watching, you’ll have a hard time looking away.

The weirdness starts at 3:30.

12 Enlightening Quotes From The Great American Conservative Women Of 2011.

Really?! Because fucking flowers don’t require $250K to thrive over 18 years. They just need some water, dirt and sun. Plus, some of them are perennials and die back in the winter and fall. If you’re raising kids like flowers, someone needs to call Department of Family services on your ass.

Things that exist, part deux: Movie Mom reviews New Moon

And we have Lautner’s excellent abs, which play such a significant role they should have their own billing. Lautner also has an easy confidence and sincerity on screen that nicely leavens the intensity and drama of the Bella-Edward connection. The screenplay is seasoned with some humor and a reference to self-referential cleverness that is almost meta.

Oh, dear. Movie Mom, we have a problem. You sound like a horny 15-year-old girl. WWJD, huh? Pretty sure you’re breaking that one commandment about having other gods before that really jealous one.
