High weirdness in the GOP — so, normal

Robert Bentley campaign former staff members raise questions |

Okay, so after (apparently, the recount is underway, but his situation looks good) making the runoff in the gubernatorial primary, in a huge surprise, and being in good shape to win it… after that, Robert Bentley fired a bunch of his campaign staff. He brought in non-Alabamians, led by Mike Huckabee’s son-in-law, to fill their roles. I am increasingly of the opinion that he will blow this, and Bradley Byrne will get the nomination.

St. Roy of the Teabags

Trussville Tax Day Tea Party draws about 350 people |

Yes, St. Roy himself addressed the local teabaggers. A real meeting of the minds, there. Whoever the speaker is, the teabag brigade gets to hear rhetoric that is almost, but not quite, calling for the violent overthrow of the elected government of the United States of America, and Roy did not disappoint, breaking out the Thomas Paine and the Patrick Henry and comparing the present environment to the American Revolution. Because, well, he’s an idiot and so are the teabaggers.

Only the good die young

Why now?

Jefferson County employees rally at courthouse on eve of indefinite leaves –

Gosh, guys, if you wait a couple of day you’ll have all the time to rally you need. My suggestion is that you get together and bus down to Montgomery; there’s not much the people here can do.

Betty Fine Collins, meanwhile, was in San Diego for the RNC meeting. Way to stay in the game, BFC!
