Big Pharma Takes on a 13 Year Old

Seems Big Pharma is so desperate to defend Herman Cain that he’ll attack a 13 year old.  

Oh, to those a bit confused right now, “Big Pharma” is a nickname for Rush Limbaugh.  (Thanks Duncan. . . I forgot you used that nickname for Rush.)

Meanwhile, back in politics, that 13 year old is going to be oh so thankful his Christmas Tree doesn’t suffer a 15 cent “tax.”  As noted here on Media Matters, and here on Politics USA,  and here at the LA Times, the whining about a “Christmas Tree Tax” is yet another fake controversy dreamed up by the FauxNews/Drudge Report nexus of liars.  Still, Obama caved on the fee, dreamed up by the Christmas Tree Growers as their opportunity to mount a similar ad campaign to “Got Milk” and “The Incredible Edible Egg.”  As such, the democratic vote of Christmas Tree Growers is thwarted by Obama caving in to Republican whiners

This is how Republicans roll.  They attack kids and make up fake controversies.  “Shame” is not a big enough word. 

As an aside, I’d love to see a tag that said “Right Wing Whackjobs.”

Mark Block-associated organization involved in allegations of illegal campaign activities

Mark Block potentially involved in illegal campaign activities? That’s unpossible!

Herman Cain’s two top campaign aides ran a private Wisconsin-based corporation that helped the GOP presidential candidate get his fledgling campaign off the ground by originally footing the bill for tens of thousands of dollars in expenses for such items as iPads, chartered flights and travel to Iowa and Las Vegas – something that might breach federal tax and campaign law, according to sources and documents.

Internal financial records obtained by No Quarter show that Prosperity USA said it was owed about $40,000 by the Cain campaign for a variety of items in February and March. Cain began taking donations for his presidential bid on Jan. 1.

It’s worth noting that while Mark Block is currently serving as the head of Herman Cain’s presidential campaign, he formerly served as the head of Americans for Prosperity in Wisconsin, and you may also remember Block from involvement (along with James Wigderson) in election law violations relating to the 1997 campaign of former state Supreme Court Justice Jon Wilcox. Block settled that case by agreeing to pay a $15,000 fine and to stay out of Wisconsin politics for three years.
