In no particular order, this writer will give you a choice of a number of Klown Kar Riders, now making news for their lack of veracity, and loss of a grasp of the truth.   People dedicated to the Big Lie in all its glory and no surprise, they are all Republicans and Right-wingers.

Our guide begins with Voter Disenfranchisement:   it is becoming increasingly apparent that Republicans, against the Department of Justice's efforts to stop the illegal actions, are using various methods to stop opponents' supporters from voting.   They are challenging people's citizenship, residency, age, and more, to prevent people who have every right, from voting in the Presidential Election.   The GOP are focusing upon people who will vote for the GOP's Opposition, President Barack Obama.

We offer you a comment to make if, or when, you sign a petition to stop voter disenfranchisement:

The right to vote is fundamental to any democracy.   Each U.S. Citizen has the right to make choices, to determine the direction of her/his future; the direction taken by our government.   If we continue to allow certain political parties or factions to disenfranchise voters, in order to thin out the number of people who might indeed vote against them, then we are contributing to our own demise.   If politicians take away a civil right that does not affect us, and we say "so what?" then we are guilty of helping to plan for the time when the next civil right taken away from us is one that directly us.   Remember, as Edmund Burke said: "The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing."

Reach in and grab your first nut!

Rep. Bachmann, lying by MSNBC

Moving along to one of the former commuters in the Klown Kar, Rep. Michelle Bachmann, we have learned politicians from both parties in the House and the Senate have attacked the former Presidential candidate for her own attacks on Muslims.   One, is Huma Abedin, wife of former Rep. Anthony Weiner, D-NY.   Bachmann has accused Ms. Abedin of having ties to the Muslim Brotherhood, the Islamic Party that recently took power in Egypt.   Not satisfied to attack Ms. Abedin alone, Rep. Bachmann also accused her mother, brother, and late father of the same allegiances to the Muslim Brotherhood.   Five other Republicans joined Rep. Bachmann.   (No surprises here, they all represent states in which we find many bigots and racists.)

Even Senator John McCain, R-Ariz, in a speech on the Senate Floor, said, "These sinister accusations rest solely on a few unspecified and unsubstantiated associations of members of Huma's family, none of which have been shown to harm or threaten the United States in any way."   Denouncing Bachmann, McCain went on to say, "These attacks have no logic, no basis, and no merit and they need to stop.   They need to stop now."

The first Muslim elected to Congress, Rep. Keith Ellison, D-Minn., said of Bachmann, "This is one of those moments when you can't stay silent.   This is McCarthyism at its worst."

Reach in and grab your second nut!

Mitt Romney, angry by MSNBC

In a departure from driving around with a dog in a cage, strapped to the roof of a car Presidential Hopeful Mitt Romney spent a lot of time accusing President Obama of not being an American Citizen.   Remember, this is Mitt Romney and, as the saying goes, if you don't like his opinion on anything, just wait a day, and he will reverse himself to one you might like.   The Etch-A-Sketch candidate, demonstrating that he truly doesn't have a clue, let alone any cogent plan for America's future, has instead of a plan, dusted off the GOP's Big lie approach, to use against a sitting President.

In the face of the growing number of Conservatives -- that's Right, (not Democrats) -- demanding that Romney release his tax returns, Romney began casting President Obama as a foreigner.   Once again using Lies, Misdirection, Fear, Uncertainty, and Doubt, he is raising a dead issue:   President Obama's citizenship.

Telling his supporters, or at least those who show up for his speeches, that President Obama is not a "real American," Romney continues to demonstrate contempt for the truth.

One stinking pile, which came from the Romney camp, was this gem:   Obama "has no idea how the American system functions, and we shouldn't be surprised about that, because he spent his early years in Hawaii smoking something, spent the next set of years in Indonesia, another set of years in Indonesia, and, frankly, when he came to the U.S. he worked as a community organizer, which is a socialized structure, and then got into politics in Chicago."   Continuing to amaze sane people everywhere, Mitt Romney avoids mention of his Party Platform for the future of our country.

Does America really need a person who lacks the ability to tell the truth, to be the leader of the Free World?   Voters all over the United States must ask themselves this question.
