I live in a constant state of early 90s.
When college rock was good, and black people were still on TV.

     Sen. Rand Paul copied the Gattaca Wikipedia page to make a speech.

If your party’s candidate is losing at the polls, and you bring in an out-of-state whackjob to fire up the extremists, you might be a Republican.

If Gattaca is your supporting argument for why your party should be elected over the opposition, you might be a Republican.

If you can’t even write a speech, but instead must copy a Wikipedia page word-for-word, you might be a Republican.

Gattaca though….of all the movies, Rand Paul chose to plagiarize the Gattaca Wikipedia page.  I guess he thought since only seventeen people saw that movie twenty years ago, no one would notice, but Rachel Maddow got your number boo-boo!  Caught!

     Don Yelton, the boldest bigot in NC, resigns from GOP position.

When Don Yelton’s epic Daily Show interview went viral yesterday, I was fairly unmoved.  This is North Carolina.  They’ve been slowly chipping away at their armor of being the Deep South’s Pocket of Progressives, joining the rest of their cousins in denying rights, de-funding education, and raising the bar on anti-liberal rhetoric.  So, Don Yelton didn’t surprise me.  His resignation, on the other hand, has my sideeye on ten right now.

     Virginia Dems lose court battle to reverse purge of 40,000 voters.

Virginia and New Jersey are two states who have off-cycle elections and they will be electing governors in a few weeks.  In Virginia, Republican-controlled voting authorities removed nearly 40,000 voters from the registration lists in an effort to reduce voter fraud (which is, let me remind you, not a problem anywhere in this country).  The Democratic party took the issue to court with a lawsuit which includes Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli who is running for governor in this election.  The court ruled in favor of the Republican party on the grounds that the purge was perfectly legal.

So, why do I have such a bad taste in my mouth?  Oh right, because the Repugnantblican establishment is still Shady Susan and so is this voter fraud issue.

     Texas has issued 41 new voter IDs.

Before the ink fully dried on the Supreme Court’s VRA ruling, Texas was pushing through legislation to tighten the restrictions on voting (read: Republicans wanted less poor, brown, and/or old people to vote).  Now, you’ll need to present one of the approved pieces of identifications (which includes a concealed handgun license because of course it does), and if you don’t have any of those, you need one of their new voter IDs.

1.4 million Texans are eligible to vote but don’t have an ID.  Only 41 of those Texans have applied for the new voter ID.

Looks like this is turning out just the way they’d hoped.

     The Disjointed States of America

The United States is too big and too obnoxious to govern effectively.  One of my friends proposed we break it up, and I am in full favor of that, but I would probably rename it:

     "Texas is not America."

I’ve been reading a lot of poll analysis following the government shutdown and Republicans are being dragged across the board.  Nobody likes the Tea Party.  And nobody likes Ted Cruz.  In Texas, it’s a different story, so when Matt Mackowiak, a Republican political consultant in Austin, said “Texas is not America,” I just nodded my head and said “yep…you’re right.”

     This is how we defeat gerrymandering.

Gerrymandering is the reason the government shutdown.  Republicans redrew districts in 2010, tipped the balance in favor of their party to win House seats, and now we’re stuck in this quagmire with no way out.  Look at how unfair the voting is:

Republicans did not win those seats.  They stole them (save for IL and MD).  But we can start getting them back by changing the rules….or playing dirtier.
