Nothing I could write here could say more about the vile nature of the rabid opposition to Governor Scott Walker than their own behavior, as witnessed this weekend at the Tax Day Tea Party in Madison. I dare anyone to defend this garbage.

People are constantly faced with choices in their lives. At times the choice which appears to be the correct one to make may in the long run reveal itself as not that good of a decision and the same is true vice versa. This is especially so when faced with the choice of whom to support amongst several candidates during a primary. Although some folks have become discouraged over the years when the choice they’ve selected turned out to not be as originally envisioned, it’s important to continue making decisions and choosing the candidate which appears best at the time. At other times, one choice is obviously negative and although the other option may not be perfect, it is definitely the better of the two – as explained all the way below.
Since no-one is perfect and it is impossible to agree with one’s candidate/supported official 100% of the time, even when making a correct choice it is often accompanied with many gray areas which at times overshadow the white. Prior to the 2010 elections Arlen Specter, Republican Senator of purple-blue Pennsylvania was approaching a reelection and wavered on a decision before ultimately shocking and angering Republicans when he cast his vote in favor of Obama’s stimulus plan. This was the first time he sided with the Democrats on a major bill and his action resulted in conservatives and Tea Partiers to declare war on Specter at every cost. Their mission appeared noble and correct, and Pat Toomey is now the Republican Senator of Pennsylvania after barely winning the general election with a single point in the 2010 mid-term elections; a year in which Republicans swept victories across the country. He is surely a better representative of conservative values in the Senate than Specter had been.
However, the price tag it had cost for conservatives to place Toomey in the Senate had turned out be unexpectedly sky-rocketing expensive and resulted in many to question whether the goal was worth the consequences. When Specter saw he would be unable to win the Republican Primary, he made a mad dash to save his seat, switched parties, and provided the Democrats with the 60th vote which led to the passage of their infamous Obamacare. Thus, although we now have a solid conservative in the Senate who replaced a RINO (not an outright liberal) we are now weighed down with Obamacare which threatens to overtake a sixth of the private sector and is currently awaiting judgment on its constitutionality by the Supreme Court Justices.
Incidentally, two of our current conservative Supreme Court Justices, Roberts and Alito, are currently on the bench thanks to Specter, after Senator Santorum had made the choice to support Specter for reelection in ’04 when he was challenged in a primary by Pat Toomey. At the time, Senator Santorum was faced with the difficult choice whether he should support the incumbent Senator Specter and his senior colleague who although was a less conservative choice than Toomey, was far more probable to be successful in keeping the seat red during an election where the balance on Senate was up in the air and anti-Republican emotions were thick. This surmise turned out pretty accurate since Toomey barely managed to eke out a 1% victory in 2010 when the public was outraged at Obamacare and looked favorably upon the Tea Party candidates.
Maintaining the Republican control of the Senate was by far not the only factor which Santorum focused on when making his decision. He was also strongly aware that Bush would be nominating at least two and possibly three justices for the Supreme Court and that Specter who headed the judiciary committee would be extremely influential whether Bush’s proponents would ultimately be approved by the Senate. Santorum therefore opted to support Specter after receiving his word that he would support the conservative candidates for the Supreme Court which Bush would propose, something which will influence U.S. history for years to come as is visible now with the Obamacare hearings.
Santorum’s support of Specter indeed resulted in two strong conservatives on the bench, although it may have likely cost him the nomination in the current GOP presidential primary. In addition to having been hammered for supporting Specter in’04 for actions taken years later and were impossible to foretell six years earlier, his act resulted in Specter’s former opponent and the current Conservative Senator of Pennsylvania and Santorum’s home-state, Pat Toomey, to act favorably towards Santorum’s opponent – the author of Romneycare. In fact, immediately after Santorum announced he was suspending his campaign yesterday, Toomey released an official endorsement endorsing Romney, causing many to speculate whether the endorsement would occur regardless prior to Pennsylvania’s primary and whether it was one of the causes which led to the Santorum campaign suspension.
The above two examples clearly illustrate how when one makes a choice which appears to be good, it isn’t necessarily all good as is later revealed. It shouldn’t however leave us disheartened for ultimately many good also emerged from those choices. Additionally, many decisions are pretty clear-cut where one option is definitely bad. Even if the other one doesn’t necessarily turn out to be all that good, we still know it is better than the alternative.
Supporting a candidate doesn’t necessarily mean that one agrees with all they’ve done or stand for, although a candidate usually will have some supporters who do identify with them to an extreme. Many supporters of a specific candidate usually support the candidate because they identify with them on a single issue while many others don’t even have that. They simply support a certain candidate because he’s the better choice than the alternative. This was visible numerous times amongst this primary and is very typical. After Palin chose not to run, a majority of her supporter split between Cain and Newt. After Bachmann, Cain, and Perry exited the race, their supporters too turned to find a second or third ro fourth choice amongst the remaining candidates. This led to the momentum to shift from Perry to Cain to Newt to Santorum as voters were forced to reevaluate the field once it was clear the person they supported wasn’t running at all or any longer. I too have first supported Palin, and when she announced she wasn’t running though long and hard until turning to support Santorum approximately a month prior to the Iowa caucuses.
With Santorum now having suspended his campaign, the primary is sort of wrapped up despite the many voters including myself who haven’t yet received the opportunity to cast their ballots. Unlike the primary where the choices were plentiful – at least at the start, the general will boil down to two choices; four more years for Barack Obama or Mitt Romney. Obama has already been in office long enough for everyone with an open mind to recognize the damage he’s wrought upon this country. Obama is clearly not only the bad choice but an utter disaster for this country. Any alternative will be far better and less to the left than the Marxist Obama.
Romney’s Attorney General will not be someone like Eric Holder who looks the other way when the Black Panther sets a price-tag of a million dollars on Zimmerman’s head and refuses to take responsibility or even answer basic questions regarding Fast & Furious. Nor will Romney chose the dopey Kathleen Sebelius as Secretary of Health and Human Services, the unqualified leftist Janet Napolitano as his Secretary of Homeland Security, and so on and so forth.
The choice now has boiled down between two people; Obama and Romney and it is time to unite under the better of the two – Mitt Romney. There are many who have announced that they refuse to vote for Romney and are planning to sit out the 2012 election, all the while talking of setting him up with a conservative in 2016. It is okay to talk of 2016, but only after the 2012 elections have taken place and giving Romney a chance at the presidency, if he reaches it. He may or may not make a good president but he’s not a definite Obama, and if conservatives will dislike him so greatly we can challenge him in 2016 just as we would put out a conservative against Obama.
We conservatives have proven our power the last couple of years by successfully challenging lots of incumbents in primaries and Romney is aware of it.. He won’t want to face a primary from his own party and will probably go along with whatever conservatives in Congress present him. Obama, on the other hand, is aware it’ll be his last term and will have no need to appease to any voters except for his leftist base who will replace Karl Marx with Barack Obama. If we thought he was radical in his first term, a second Obama term will be so much more disastrous it defies description. I plead with you fellow conservatives, w can look ahead to the future but at the same time we MUST REMEMBER THE HERE AND NOW AND MAKE THE RIGHT CHOICE FOR 2012. WE MUST SAY NO TO OBAMA AND THUS SAY YES TO MITT ROMNEY.

“Has the TEA Party become a GOP Liability?” -Washington Post headline, April 6th, 2012.
First of all, a big thanks to all who R&R’d (Read and recommended, and if that’s not slang on the sites where I post yet, it is now.) my last post. Like most conservatives, I wish the media would do its job, so I wouldn’t have to. I would like to apologize to my wife for the spit-take that occurred when I saw that headline on a friends’ facebook post. (Article here) For a little backstory, my wife diligently saved her money before we got married, and bought our couch and bed for us as a wedding present to me. I spat the coffee I was drinking all over the couch, upon which I am now sleeping until I get the aforementioned beverage out of it. If any of you have a little room in your budget for a radio show host/blogger, I am available. Please send help and prayers to email@example.com. While that request enters the ether, we have other matters at hand.
As a member of the Charleston TEA Party, and a conservative in good standing, I was forced to wonder if there was any legitimacy to the charge. That lasted for all of a few seconds. We have an innate ”distrust reflex” for most everything in media. When Fox News came along, it was a welcome relief just to watch someone try to show our side. Fox News rapidly became the Israel of broadcast journalism. Neighbors fired at it on a daily basis. The rest of its world tried to smear and demean it, and entire hate groups were built around it, like MSNBC and Current TV. In the spirit of Easter, I am going to try to be nice for a minute. Giving WaPo the benfit of the doubt, maybe they are just trying to explore another angle on the election. Maybe, just maybe, Pravda on the Potomac (Can’t take credit for that, Google search…-JK) is trying to give this election a fair shake.
Welcome back. I know you spent a little time doubled over laughing, and I don’t blame you. When I wrote that line, I nearly lost control of certain bodily functions that would have made the coffee spit-take debacle pale in comparison. But I digress, for the last time, I promise. Washington Post presents its standard evidence, which is polling data. Remember how polls are used to shape public opinion, not record it? Check this out:
“A recent Fox News poll showed just 30 percent of Americans had a favorable view of the tea party, compared to 51 percent who viewed it unfavorably.
A recent Washington Post/ABC News poll may be more illustrative, though. It showed Americans were more evenly split on the tea party, with 44 percent supporting it and 43 percent opposing it. But just 15 percent of Americans supported the tea party “strongly,” while many more – 26 percent – were “strongly” opposed to it.
That suggests opposition to the tea party is more strident than the tea party itself, which means the movement may be doing the GOP more harm than good.”
The article then goes on to quote a Democrat strategist who states that the TEA Party has become a dangerous group that no longer reflects the values of the American middle class. That’s a curious observation from the party of Occupy Wall Street, especially when the President has something like a 60-70% disapproval rating on how he’s handled the economy. And in my humble opinion, the President’s approval numbers factor into the whole scheme quite a bit. Follow me on this logical journey, if you will. The President is planning to run against Mitt Romney, the TEA Party, and the Republican Party as one cohesive unit whehter they are or not. We are going to be hit with the “do-nothing Congress”, “GOP Extremism”, and “Republican obstructionism” from all sides, whether the topic is relevant or not. Birth control, anyone? President Obama blamed Republican obtructionism in the pages of Rolling Stone before they even held the House! So in light of a -17% Presidential Approval Index among likely voters (See that here), President Obama’s team has thrown another dart at the Democrat re-election strategy board, hoping it resonates. The problem is, it only has one target: Run against a straw man. “It could have been worse”, “saved jobs”, and “profitable green industry” all spring from this political Narnia where President Obama has done a marvelous job, Obamacare is clearly constitutional, and a bunch of working-class voters in tricorn hats have ruined it all.
It just doesn’t jive. According to Rasmussen, the Tea Party’s approval rating as of November last year was 30%, and the Occupy movement was 37% unfavorable. Remember that Rasmussen polls likely voters. That poll should not exist, if the media is to be believed. Democrat Representatives marched with the Occupy movement, and it was supposed to revitalize the left. However, given the reality on the ground, and the grotesque images and video that turned up during the height of the movement, Occupy should have been called Communists Rallying for American Progressivism. Worse still, the polls on the TEA Party show Republicans view it favorably. And the worst yet? The numbers on the TEA Party bounce around like crazy. They are as nebulous as the group itself. In an attempt to pin it down and define it, the Democrat Party Media Relations Divsion has found itself herding politcal cats, or grasping at shadows. They vacillate from “it doesn’t exist”:
To, ”It’s a dangerous, racist, anti-everything, economic terrorist organization that’s responsible for the failures of the Obama administration and Congress’ bad poll numbers”:
Stupidity like this is actually amusing as can be. This “comprimise” rhetoric leads me to another point, though. Ever since the GOP took over the House in 2010, we have been mercilessly pilloried with the notion of how willing Republicans once were to comprimise. According to left, even as seen in the clip above, we used to lay down our arms and negotiate. Paul Begala wrote a column in The Daily Beast/Newsweek that he longed for a time when Republicans knew their place, and were kept under close watch by strong leaders, who would force them to comprimse when necessary. His ideal Republican: Bob Dole. Then we get drivel about Ronald Reagan raising taxes, and working to comprimise with Democrats. Even the President has jumped in to say Reagan could not win today’s GOP nomination. You know what Mr. President? JFK could not have won a Democrat primary since 1976. But since the Imperial Scribes, not the Emperor, are the ones we are going after in this segment, let’s see what they have to say. From Leonard Pitts Jr. of The Miami Herald, Imperial Idiot of the highest order:
“No, it is the GOP that has abandoned the center and embraced ideological extremism as a virtue. It is telling to hear its candidates use “moderate” as an epithet and argue over who is the most “conservative,” as if the word contained some pixie dust of common sense and moral rectitude. It is sobering to realize that Ronald Reagan, patron saint of modern conservatism, would be unelectable by the standards thereof: He raised taxes and was known to compromise with political opponents — not “enemies” — to get things done.
That was then. His party has since engaged in a 30-year flight from the center that reaches its nadir — at least, let us hope it’s the nadir — in this era of tea party incoherence, faith-based policy, fear mongering and tax pledge tyranny. This era when compromise is both lost art and dirty word and some Americans see other Americans as enemies — an era in which there is something lonely and foregone about pleading with an angry nation that this is not how it is supposed to be.”
You want to see a clear and obvious difference between the character of Reagan and Obama? If Obama had just half the character of Reagan, we would have seen him sign cuts into law, real cuts, at least two times by now. Look at how Reagan handled not having congressional support compared with how Obama has handled it. To quote a famous comic book writer: ‘Nuff said.
And abou this whole “too far to the right” business? Quick, name for me a social welfare program that has been cut. No? Name for me a year when we cut goverment spending. No again? OK, name for me a government agency that has exceeded is budget or risked insolvency. That one was too easy, you say? There’s a reason. When you look at government through that frame, its simple to see why the left says we are moving to the right. There’s a principle known as relative motion. If you walk past someone standing still, and you keep walking, and they keep standing still, the distance between you keeps growing, Only one side has to move to have “motion” between the two. The GOP of the years since Reagan has stood in place, mostly. If it has moved anywhere, it has moved to the left a little (Lindsey Graham). But when seen from the vantage point of a Democrat Party scrambling to introduce us to a National Health Care system, a more progressive tax system, and even seeking to take goverment control of private retirement accounts, it must look like we are moving to the right quite a bit. The notion that any powers not expressly granted to the Federal Goverment are granted to the States or the People (all capitalized on purpose) must seem like whacko Michigan Militia talk. That idea comes from the constitution, where our core position rests. How far has the Democrat Party gone when the heart of the American ethos is considered right wing extremism?
Finally, I have to add this: The TEA Party is starting to look more and more like they were hiding a crystal ball somewhere in their midst. The predictions made about the intrusion of government, the destruction of liberty, and the dire economic consequences of this President’s policies all seem like the eerie ramblings of a white-wigged soothsayer that somehow became true. The NDAA? Obamacare? Deficits? The list goes on. And the “do-nothing Congress” has tried to stop a President who does not respect his own constitutional limitations and responsibilities, much less theirs. They have had precious little succes. Liability, in legal terms, is synonymous with culpability and responsibility. The TEA Party sent the Congress to slow the machine, and they have somewhat, but when you are dealing with such an idealogue, culpability and capability do not always align. How do you stop a President that refuses to constrain himself or his signature legislation to the limits of the very document that grants him the Office? How do you stop a President that sees destroying the constitution as keeping the oath he took upon inauguration? It isn’t enough to vote a congressional counterbalance in. You must vote him out. That’s why the TEA Party is being framed like this. We are not the GOP’s responsibilty, we are not its liability, and we are not its culpability. We are the reason it has any capability. Time to put the tricorn hat back on and saddle up.
Wherever Joseph Kurt travels, a liberal on horseback rides out ahead of him screaming , “The Liars are coming!”. It never works.

Last weekend, a Senate Forum was held in Orlando at the tail end of a statewide tea party gathering, followed by a straw poll. Of those who attended the forum and chose to participate in the straw poll, just under half of the overall attendees, George LeMieux was the heavy favorite.
Now there have been those who’ve disputed the validity of that straw poll, primarily supporters of Rep. Connie Mack, however, what cannot be disputed is that LeMieux did a better job connecting with the room that night than the other two candidates present, Mack and Col. Mike McCalister.
As one attendee attested; “I did not vote for LeMieux in this straw poll, but I would have to say that he definitely had the best performance of the three candidates.”
So how is that possible?
With the constant reminder of George Lemieux’s connections with former Gov. Charlie Crist, an unforgivable act in the eyes of some, how is it that his message resonates with tea party activists? It’s not as if those present last weekend overlooked this little nugget, LeMieux barely had both feet on stage before he was ambushed with the question and Mack was also quick to bring it up.
And with Col. McCalister having spent months on end touting himself as the ‘tea party candidate’, how is it that LeMieux comes into what should be McCalister’s home turf and carries the day?
Perception often trumps reality and nowhere is this more true than in politics. Millions are spent carefully crafting a candidate’s image or shaping his opponent in the eyes of the public. Our senses are assaulted with cleverly designed ads, often with so much spin we’re left not knowing which end is up. On the campaign trail every candidate promises milk and honey, while every opponent is the spawn of Satan himself.
Often times, when we look at the actions and words of a politician when he is not campaigning, we get a little more accurate picture of his true self. So in an effort to solve this great mystery of how George LeMieux is appealing to the grassroots, we’re going to climb aboard the way-back machine and take a look at the man before he started campaigning.
LeMieux was appointed to replace retiring Senator Mel Martinez back in August, 2009, the first time he has held public office, and formally announced his intentions to run for Sen. Bill Nelson’ s seat on April 5, 2011.
In February, 2010 LeMieux joined with Sen. Jim Demint (R-SC) and others to introduce legislation to impose a moratorium on earmarks and also a balanced-budget amendment to the Constitution. He said at the time;
“Washington is addicted to spending and earmarks are the gateway drug to enormous debt. We need to stop earmarks and require a balanced budget. The American people don’t trust Washington to do the right thing with their money – and for good reason. The longer we do nothing about our debt, the longer struggle toward prosperity our children and future generations face.”
In May, 2010, LeMieux was a guest blogger for The Heritage Foundation and the topic was the president’s nominee to the United States Supreme Court. He opined;
“Congress’ tendency to expand government power is as real today as it was in [Alexander] Hamilton’s time. Healthcare mandates, exponential increases in the federal debt, and the recent spate of government bailouts all reflect that, left unchecked, government will expand into every nook and cranny of our commerce and our lives.”
In June, 2010, during a a meeting with the St. Petersburg Times editorial board, LeMiuex said;
“Fiscal responsibility is nothing but background music in Washington.”
In August, 2010, LeMieux hosted the “Fiscal Solutions Forum” in Orlando and Tampa, along with former U.S. Comptroller General David M. Walker and Concord Coalition Ex. Dir. Robert L. Bixby, two national budget experts. The forum focused on the national debt and the net interest paid on that debt. His comments then;
“We’re going to have to look across the board. My view is that we don’t have a revenue problem in Washington. We’ve got a spending problem. We’re going to have to look at our spending programs. We’re going to have to prioritize. No one even looks to see whether or not we’re spending our money efficiently and effectively. It’s going to take some principal people to go up there and try to do the right thing.”
“Washington spending is out of control and the size of our debt proves it. From the time I came to Congress until now, the public debt has increased by one and a half trillion dollars. We have a responsibility to the American people to rein in spending and ensure that every taxpayer dollar is spent wisely, not wastefully. Now is the time to make the difficult decisions, not somewhere down the road after we’ve passed along the burden to our children.”
So when George LeMieux stood before tea party activists and identified the national debt as our “number one threat”, stated that “career politicians, both parties, are as great a threat” and spoke of the future of our children as being the motivation behind his run, it’s very likely he wasn’t just pandering to his audience, but was speaking to his convictions.
He was also speaking the tea party’s language. He did not bluster and he did not tell the audience one thing, then spend the following days walking it back in the media. He was speaking to what he has been saying all along, to what most in that room have dedicated three years of their lives to; fiscal responsibility, limited government and free market solutions.
Which may be what prompts responses such as this from a reader;
“I watched George LeMieux’s voting record after he took over as interim senator. To my surprise, he voted along Small-Government, Tea Party lines repeatedly. I had expected to find another Charlie Crist pattern since Crist had appointed him. Yet, LeMieux voted as an actual Reagan-style conservative would have voted… at this point, I’d choose George LeMieux. And am personally quite surprised to find myself in this position.”
LeMieux closed out his comments last week by saying, “I’m not a show horse, I’m a work horse.” It would be hard to disagree that we have plenty of show horses already in Washington, D.C.

PCW Politics is War on P-SPAN Report
Benton Harbor High School
Benton Harbor, MI
Thursday April 5th, 2012
Host: Johnny Suave
REPLAY: End of Tuesday Night’s PCW Wild in Wisconsin
Olbermann again starts going off about various things. Finally…
*Def Leppard’s Tear It Down plays*
Suave: IT’S THE EXTREME EQUALIZER- WHISKEY TANGO FOXTROT!
Tear it down – There’s got to be a better way
Tear it down – I can’t wait another day
Tear it down – There’s got to be a better way
Tear it down – If only you could stay
All night long
Crowd: What the @#$#!…What the @!##!
WTF: Keith. You’re fired.
WTF grabs Olbermann by the throat…lift…CHOKESLAM!
*Fleetwood Mac‘s “Don’t Stop” begins to play*
‘The Extreme Environmental Hardcore Icon’ Al Gore (D)
Suave: “IT’S HIM! HE’S HERE! THE TREE HUGGIN’, MOCHA CHUGGIN’, TOBACCO COMPANY BUGGIN’ ALPHA MALE AND ENVIROMENTAL EXTREME HARDCORE ICON…
The crowd sings the chorus “Don’t stop, thinking about tomorrow.” Gore holds up his mocha, inside an environmentally friendly biodegradable container of course, and chugs it down. Then he spews it out of his mouth into the crowd and then crushes the paper container on his forehead in a manly fashion.
The Environmental Extreme Hardcore Icon walks down the steps to the main floor. At the bottom of the steps, Gore pulls out another container of mocha, guzzles it down, spews it into the crowd, and then smashes the container on his forehead. Gore then wades through the main floor crowd to the ring. He climbs up on the apron, pulls out yet another cup of mocha, guzzles that one down, spews it into the crowd, and then smashes the container on his forehead.
Gore in the ring.
Gore: I suppose you all want to know what went down between Keith Olbermann and Current TV. All I can say is that Mr. Olbermann, who was paid a lot of money for showing up periodically to do his show and didn’t keep up his end of the bargain, apparently wants tens of millions more for not working. As the old adage says, when the law’s on your side you argue the law. When the law and the facts aren’t on your side, you pound the table. Let’s just say that Mr. Olbermann is well versed in pounding the table.
Voice: Hold on a second, Al!
Keith Olbermann and the minions of his Olbermann Broadcast Empire, formerly known as FOK, David Schuster and Shannyn Moore, walk out.
Olbermann: The Mets put Andres Torres on the DL today. That seems to have as much relevance to my lawsuit as anything you just said, Al.
Gore smiles and hands Olbermann a piece of paper.
Gore: This has plenty of relevance, Keith. Consider yourself served.
Suave: OLBERMANN JUST GOT SERVED…OH, SUIT PAPERS!
Olbermann’s face turns red and he tackles Gore.
Suave: CAT-FIIIIIIIIIGHT! CAT-FIIIIIIIGHT!
The OBE try to separate the two.
‘The Massachusetts Redblood’ Mitt Romney talks with PCW Investigative Reporter Woodward Bernstein.
Romney: It’s time to get going. It’s time to start focusing on November’s PCW Extreme Election Night 2012 and PCW CEO Barack Obama (D-IL). It’s enough to make you think that years of flying around on Air Force One, surrounded by an adoring staff of true believers telling you what a great job you are doing, well, that might be enough to make you a little out of touch.
Romney: And…that’s all.
Bernstein: Oh. You’re not going to screw up the aftermath of a victory again?
Romney: Not this time.
(1) Daniel-San vs. Steve Torino- Used Car Salesman- no contest
Daniel-San was about to slap on the Labell Lock when former allies John Creese and the Cobra Conservatives came out and attacked the former PCW Champion.
The Cobra Cons stomp away at a helpless Daniel-San until the crowd roars and Mrs. Miyagi sprints out with Halitosis- The Insane Luchador with the even more Insane Breath, to the ring. Halitosis uses his lethal breath to knock out the Cobra Cons and Creese escapes through the ropes.
Daniel-San sees Mrs. Miyagi and tries to shake her hand. Mrs. Miyagi turns around and leaves before he can do so.
Bobby Petrino Motorcycle Accident
Arkansas football coach Bobby Petrino shuffles to the ring. He admits that he didn’t fully disclose the fact that there was a 25 year old female passenger riding with him after his recent motorcycle accident.
Petrino: I have been in constant pain, medicated and the circumstances involving the wreck have come out in bits and pieces. That said I certainly had a concern about Jessica Dorrell’s name being revealed. In hindsight, I showed a serious mistake in judgment when I chose not to be more specific about those details. Today, I’ve acknowledged this previous inappropriate relationship with my family and those within the athletic department administration.
Suave: Apparently, Jessica Dorrell turned down riding First Class to her upcoming wedding and rode Coach… *rimshot*
Petrino then added…
Petrino: Do you know who I am? This is the freakin’ SEC. I’ve won 21 games at Arkansas over the past two seasons…
Arkansas Razorbacks fan: Y’all, there’s two college football coaches better than anyone else in the country- Nick Saban and Bobby Petrino. Sooooo-eeee.
Suave: Bama is ‘Roll Tide.’ Petrino is ‘Stop, Drop, and Roll.’
(2) Scott Walker’s (R-WI) Rangers: Ronnie and John Walker (R) def. Flavin and Tony Dreamboat
The Walkers win when Flavin tried to clock Ronnie Walker with the oversized clock around his neck and missed. Ronnie then got the roll up pin for the victory.
Post match, the PCW Tag Team Champions Big Union: ‘The Self Described Savior of the Middle Class’ Big Labor and James the Jeep Worker (D) attacked the Walkers. Once again, Rebecca Kleefisch (R-WI) is cornered- this time by Union Maid, and bombarded with invectives from both Big Labor and James.
*’Can You Hear the People Sing’ from Les Miserables plays*
Charlie Blackwell and Mike the Mechanic aka The American Heartland Coalition run out and make the save for Kleefisch. Big Union leaves the ring but Blackwell tells them to wait.
Blackwell: The number one problem with PCW is that both the Republican and Democrats have sold their souls to their special interest groups at our expense. The number two problem is that both Republicans and Democrats have a virtual monopoly on the political processes and have effectively excluded the American people a choice. As of right now, the PCW is going to be stuck with making the following choice for PCW CEO: a Democrat who promised change but delivered the same hardline political partisanism that he was supposedly against and a challenger foisted up by a Republican establishment totally out of touch with Main Street America.
Big Labor takes a step towards the ring but he’s blocked by Blackwell’s Les Miserables.
Mike the Mechanic: Charlie’s right. That’s not democracy. And both parties are so far out of touch with what’s really going on with average Americans that voting for either candidate in the fall when gas prices are ridiculously high, housing values have decreased, jobs aren’t coming back, is basically a coin flip. You can vote for one party who does the bidding of their special interest groups or you can vote for the other. Partisans win- the American people lose.
Suave: Earlier in the night, PCW Television Champion ‘The One Man Hollywood A-List’ Stone Chism quietly signed off on the contract to face PCW’s Queen of Extreme Valora Salinas in June at PCW Loose Cannons unleashed 8.
REPLAY: Tuesday Night’s PCW Wild in Wisconsin
Chism: What did I tell you? Valora’s a chick. She’s not a real chick though because everyone knows real chicks support Democrats. She knows there’s no way in hell that she can beat me. She’s probably back home washing the dishes or cleaning the house-
Out of nowhere, Valora jumps Chism and blasts him in the head with a lead pipe.
Suave: HOLY CRAP!
Valora busts him open with a second lead pipe shot and then puts the Katahajime on him.
Immediately, Harry Reid (D-NV) and Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) race to the ring and start shouting for help. Code Pink and Emily S. List run down. Valora lets go of Chism and then decks both with a double clothesline. She rams Code Pink’s head into the corner turnbuckle. Then she flings List through the ropes to the floor.
Chism tries to get up. Valora hits a running dropkick and Chism goes right back down. Valora drags the PCW Television Champion to the table and puts her finger in the bloody cut on Chism’s face. Then she signs the contract with Chism’s blood and as PCW security hits the ring, slides out and heads to the back.
Suave then reports on the Brad Company-Health Care- PCW Super Court situation. Following arguments made before the Super Court, the matter was now in the hands of the Super Court justices to make their decision.
PCW Hall of Fame Class Announced
Suave announced the inductees to the PCW HOF:
Wrestlers: ‘No Frills’ Chris Escondido (I) and Starz N. Stripes (also known as ‘American Citizen’ Kevin Scott) (R)
Politicians: ‘The American Screamer’ Howard Dean (D-VT) and ‘The Mastermind’ Karl Rove
The class will be inducted at PCW’s Loose Cannons Unleashed 8 PPV in June.
House Show Highlights
Suave reveals that there was an incident last night at a PCW House show between PCW Women’s Champion Kathryn Randall Collins and Miss USA.
KRC came out to cut a promo and then described Miss USA having a child as a ‘career killer.’
KRC: Her career will never be what it should have been because of the choice she made.
Miss USA than ran out and another pull apart brawl ensued.
Suave: It’s going to happen…sooner than later. KRC vs. Miss USA.
Tebow is in the ring and rips Peyton Manning once again. This time, Manning walks out and challenges Tebow to a match. Tebow accepts but Manning then sends down the Japanese SuperDestroyer Yamamoto Tanaka (R).
Tanaka wins in short order with Manning cheering him on with the Japanese SuperDestroyer.
On the ramp clapping- New York Jet QB Mark Sanchez??????
Points Standings (from Real Clear Politics):
Posted on 04 April 2012.
My first introduction to politics was at 10 years old, volunteering with my parents on a State House campaign. What hooked me on political involvement was that we lost by 12 votes on a re-count and I knew that even at 10 years old I could have found 13 more votes if I’d have worked harder.
The promise I’ve made myself in every election cycle since is that no matter what capacity I was working in, I would give everything I’ve got and that win or lose, I would know there wasn’t anything else I could have done to send my candidate to victory.
For the last three years I’ve been working full-time in conservative grassroots politics, training activists, identifying and equipping candidates. That’s been my universe and Texas has been at the center of it. During that time I’ve had the privilege of training and interacting with thousands of TEA Partiers and conservative activists who wan’t to move our state and country in the right direction.
Hundreds of thousands of conservatives across Texas have dedicated millions of man hours to get conservative candidates on the ballot for state office and volunteering for conservative causes during that time. All of this work now stands in peril.
After three years of preparation for this battle, the volunteer showing, financial contributions and effort from Texans for these state level races is frankly pathetic.
I’ve discussed this problem with TEA Party leaders, candidates and outside observers and it’s clear that the perception isn’t some figment of my imagination. The fact is that after three years of demanding conservative candidates and promising that they’d charge into fire to get them elected, Texas conservatives are on the verge of wasting a unprecedented opportunity.
Some of this is due to behind the scenes disputes and friction between big egos. Resurgent apathy and frustration with Federal level politics also plays a role. Neither of these are acceptable reasons to stand on the side lines.
We can argue about hurt feelings after we win. Until then, nobody on the left cares and we’ll accomplish nothing.
The Texas Primary Election is less than 2 months away. May 29 is D-day. There will only be about 10 competitive state house races in November but there are more than 60 state house primary elections in play on May 29! In some we’re playing defense (as with James White and David Simpson) but in most races we’re playing offense and have got strong conservatives on the ballot who have stepped up to our call of the last three years.
In the face of these incredible opportunities, we’re about to do what establishmentarians have said would happen all along!
If Texans don’t step up and make a statement on May 29th then much of the last three years will have been wasted effort. The preconceived notions of liberals within the Republican party will have been confirmed and we will have sent a generation of conservative candidates to be used as cannon fodder.
The primary election is really the only time that the vote of conservative Texans matters. We will vote in November for a Republican President & Senator, only a few US House seats will be competitive (if that) and the state legislatures will only have a handful of seats in play.
I’m confident that if I asked any group of conservatives or TEA partiers whether they would give their life for their country that every hand would raise. However, if I followed that up by asking for commitments to spend two hours block-walking or phone banking for conservative candidates, the hands would rapidly fall.
We’re not being asked to die for our country, risk our sacred honor, or even give up much of our modest fortunes. What we’re being asked to do, and what we must do to win, is commit to dedicating a few hours of our time between now and May 29th for a conservative candidate near us.
No number of hours spent in October will make up for a missed opportunity this May. There will be no chance for redemption.
The beauty of our situation is that it doesn’t require some Herculean effort to make a difference. A few hours of your time spent volunteering for a campaign, talking to your friends, registering voters or driving people to the polls could determine the outcome of these state and local races.
If you’re a conservative who wants to impact Texas’ future then now is your chance. It’s time to take action!

PCW traveled to the land of Mardi Gras last night for another big show on their ‘Roadshow Across America’ tour.
Replay from Tuesday night’s PCW Chi-Town Collision Show…
A-Bomb hits Tanaka with the crotch slam. A-Bomb slaps a bearhug on Tanaka. The referee checks…Tanaka fights and then escapes. A-Bomb tries for a snap suplex but Tanaka avoids it. Tanaka turns it around- gut-wrench powerbomb on A-Bomb. Then another Powerslam! And another Powerslam! And a third Powerslam! Tanaka mounts him on the mat and punches A-Bomb repeatedly.
Suave: A-BOMB’S IN TROUBLE AND THERE’S NOTHING RICK SANTORUM CAN DO ABOUT IT!
Tanaka shoulder tackles A-Bomb and then drags him to the top rope. Tanaka picks A-Bomb up and hits the Japanese SuperDestroyer to the mat below.
Suave: THAT’S IT! HE AIN’T GETTING UP FROM THAT ONE.
Tanaka covers A-Bomb hooking the leg. The Referee counts the pin. …1 …2 …3
WINNER: Yamamoto Tanaka (R) @ 15:26
Romney hits the ring and he’s ecstatic.
‘The Voice of PCW’ Johnny Suave and his lifesize cardboard cut-out of Shania Twain
Suave calls Tuesday night a big win for Tanaka and Romney. Can A-Bomb…
A. Tom Bomb (R)
…bounce back tonight?
Mitch Thomas- American Taxpayer Promo
Thomas said he was exhausted from working 70 hours between two jobs to help make ends meet for his family. He said regardless, he would come out tonight and give it everything he had against his opponent even though the deck was stacked against him. Thomas said both sides (Republicans and Democrats) care more about pushing their special interest groups than they are ordinary, average Americans and then went to the ring.
(1) Jordan Metzger of ‘The Bureaucracy’ (D) w/Kendra W. Wallace def. Mitch Thomas- American Taxpayer
Metzger is the lead member of the Democrat‘s Bureaucracy stable and used the ‘Red Tape’ submission on Thomas, already choking on a national debt that’s increased as much in 3 years under Barack Obama than it did in 8 years under W, to win the match.
Metzger then took the American Taxpayer’s wallet, removed more money from it, and began to leave when Charlie Blackwell of the American Heartland Coalition ran out and decked him. Blackwell locked Metzger up in the Katahajime and then took Thomas’s money back from the Bureaucracy and gave it back to the American Taxpayer.
PCW Executive Committee
The PCW Executive Committee had a moment of clarity and unity as it came together to vote 74-22 on a Transportation Package.
Said Barbara Boxer (D-CA): “I am very humbled by that because Lord knows it’s hard to find those moments when we can come together.” James Inhofe (R-OK) agreed, admitting that he and Boxer worked closely on the project even though the two were ‘opposite extremes on many issues.’
The package was sent to the PCW Competition Committee.
(2) NRA and Nic Koteen of Politically Incorrect (R) w/Andrea Doria def. Brad Company and Halitosis (I) w/Mrs. Miyagi
Koteen ‘Smoked’ Halitosis out for the win.
Post match, Politically Incorrect was confronted by the Green World Order (Radishing Rick Rube- Agronomist, GreenPete, Extreme Vegan Brock Cole Lee, PeaceNick, and Peta from PETA. The GWO came out to introduced PI to their new ‘ace’- Radishing Rick Rube, by having Rube, GreenPete, and Lee attack NRA and Koteen.
PI’s Andrea Doria and the GWO’s Peta from PETA also got into a…
Suave: CAT-FIIIIIIIIGHT! CAT-FIIIIIIIIGHT!
Finally, ‘American Citizen’ Kevin Scott (I) raced out to even the odds and chased the GWO out of the ring.
Doria then got on the microphone and announced that Scott had joined Politically Incorrect.
Suave Talks with David Axelrod (D)
Suave discusses the disappointing turnout at several big PCW shows during the ‘Roadshow Across America Tour.’ Axelrod blames it on the Republicans and their lackluster candidates for PCW CEO. Axelrod says it’s clear that the Republicans are trying to rig the process to make sure a Republican remains the PCW champion and that’s why no one is coming out to the shows.
Out comes the Sanderman (D) who challenges any Republican in the PCW locker room to come out. He’s less than thrilled when RINO-The Wonk Machine strolls out.
(3) The Sanderman def. RINO-The Wonk Machine (R)
RINO gets attacked on the way to the ring by Big Union: Big Labor and James the Jeep Worker (D) who deliver a double Scabbuster to the Wonk Machine.
RINO then limps to the ring and gets bludgeoned by The Sanderman who uses his left fist wrapped in sandpaper to rip open RINO’s face.
PCW Competition Committee
The PCW Competition Committee struggles to find consensus to pass the Transportation package.
Tea Party members ‘Tin Cup’ Ray McAvay and Average Joe object to the high cost of the package along with the ‘Club for Growth’ and Leader of the PCW Competition Committee John Boehner (R-OH) can’t muster enough votes to call the proposal up for a vote.
Peyton Manning- Denver Bronco
Peyton Manning, surrounded by his entourage, holds up his brand spanking new orange Denver Bronco jersey and handles an interview with PCW Investigative Reporter Woodward Bernstein with the same careful phrasing and polish of a politician.
…Pat Robertson weighed in??? Robertson says that Broncos treated Tim Tebow ‘shabbily.’
Robertson: Peyton Manning was a tremendous MVP quarterback. But he’s been injured, if that injury comes back, Denver will find itself without a quarterback. And in my opinion, it would serve them right.
Manning tries to laugh it off but then he’s attacked by…who?
Tom Tebow attacks Manning from behind but is dragged off the quarterback and tossed out of the ring by Manning’s entourage.
Suave: That was weird.
(4) Main Event: Yamamoto Tanaka (R) w/’The Massachusetts Redblood’ Mitt Romney (R-MA) vs. A. Tom Bomb (R) w/Rick Santorum (R-PA) and Daisy Cutter-Bomb
Tanaka, riding high after his big win Tuesday night, gets cut down to size by A-Bomb. After Mitt Romney tries to interfere by swinging an Etch a Sketch at A-Bomb but potatoes Tanaka instead, A-Bomb uses several successive Atomic Powerbombs to subdue the Japanese SuperDestroyer and get the win for Rick Santorum.
Tom Tebow approaches two men backstage and holds out his hand. The two men turn around…
Suave:HOLY CRAP! IT’S SUSPENDED NEW ORLEANS SAINTS COACH SEAN PAYTON AND SUSPENDED ST. LOUIS RAM DEFENSIVE COORDINATOR GREGG WILLIAMS!
Williams hands Tebow cash and then both Payton and Williams leave.
Romney 565, Santorum 256. Gingrich 141, Paul 66
